1. It takes an hour to reboot 50 servers which clearly means no one has heard of management tools that do this for you remotely and do batches.

2. Harmless troll posts get insta locked and deleted while serious support tickets go unanswered for days.

3. If a CS person doesnt understand your issue, they close the ticket and tell you that they are investigating.

4. No tickets are ever left opened, if they don't have a proper answer for you the ticket gets closed and you get a thank you note for taking the time to email them about your problems.

5. 2 or 3 Busy servers and 48 desolate servers are better then merging because merging is admittance of fail.

6. There is no QA team at bioware whatsoever - QA is done ingame by you, the player, after the rollout of an update which is normally why theres another update shortly after the initial one, which is to patch the **** you find.

7. Alot of time, effort and hype go into the release of a major update which produces very little improvements and lots of useless **** which gets promoted relentessly but has zero in game benefit. case in point - your family tree.

8. It is ok to destroy an original concept such as Star Wars so that your game characters based on the opriginal concept can inherit certain abilities never meant for them in the 1st place. Show me where Bobba Fett could force choke?

9. If your new update is starting to smell like fail, start promoting your next update. Game update 1.3? seriously guys fix 1.2 make the game at least half decent before trying to make us wet our lips about 1.3

10. When your game is starting to fail, don't merge servers. Instead, introduce a concept of free play for the existing players friends so that your servers appear to me fuller than what they are, thereby giving you another excuse not to downscale the number of servers you need. Only problem is, these people arent paying subscribers and will not be coming back anytime soon.

I'm going to address JUST this...
Not everyone that is Force-Sensitive takes up a Force tradition (Jedi, Sith etc...)
So, yes, you could have someone of another class with some Force abilities.

Prozac (fluoxetine) is a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) antidepressant. Prozac affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause depression, panic, anxiety, or obsessive-compulsive symptoms.

Prozac is used to treat major depressive disorder, bulimia nervosa (an eating disorder) obsessive-compulsive disorder, panic disorder, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).

Prozac is sometimes used together with another medication called olanzapine (Zyprexa) to treat depression caused by bipolar disorder (manic depression). This combination is also used to treat depression after at least 2 other medications have been tried without successful treatment of symptoms.

I have no intention of leaving this game, but at the same time I also want to see a slightly better approach to some of the promised things.

This notion to bash down anyone who says anything negative about the game by the overzealous fanboys is becoming a bit tiring though.

I love this game, I really do, but you cannot deny it requires a bit of polishing. Everything from the implementation to the interaction deserves some elbow grease to streamline it a bit better.

Insinuating that I am bipolar or depressed doesnt deter from the fact that there are problems with the game that need adressing.

If you really want to get into semantics, there were only a very few isolated incidents where force sensitives were able to use force powers without formal training.

Quote:
Force-sensitives were considered to have an unusual amount of luck, lucky guesses, and correct decisions; this was how droids could recognize Force-sensitives and enlist them for the New Jedi Order. Most untrained Force-sensitives still had raw Force associated talents, such as improved reaction time, physical strength, an affinity to animals, weather or certain other aspects of the Force.

Sorry, I come from the d20 Star Wars RPG. ^_^ As long as you had the Force-sensitive feat at 1st level, you COULD pickup Force skills.
