I'm loving the increased personal interaction and the touching base on questions.

*Seconded. I am very glad to have more communication, as is most of the community. But, there are sadly, a few who will still complain about anything, regardless.

As a note, Amber meant no offense by her post so please do not take it that way. One of my goals with the community team is to have us be more human and less robotic to all of you. Sometimes, that means that we are going to make posts that aren't 100% serious and are even going to try to joke around with the community. This is something I honestly thought the community would want from us, maybe I was mistaken.

Since last week when our transitions happened we have made a very distinct effort to respond to almost all of the current, major pending issues in the community. In some cases, I know those answers haven't always been exactly what people are looking for (like APAC) but at the least we could reconfirm that we know there is an issue and are trying to resolve it. I would even ask that you take a look at the dev tracker to see things we have responded to over the past week, we have covered quite a bit

So again, apologies if you felt her post was offensive or a "slap in the face", our intent is to be actual people to all of you. Not just robots who post in yellow.

I also implore that if you know of a major issue, something that we haven't addressed in some way, that you bring it to our attention. You can even PM me about it, we aren't trying to ignore anyone.

The recent changes to communication have been much appreciated by me, and I'm sure a vast amount of others. I'd hate to see things go back to the way they were just because of a few self-important posters.

I'm not really sure what this community's obsession with "slaps to the face" is all about. Everything that's said or happens is apparently a "slap to the face" to someone (or in their mind, everyone). I guess some people just can't look beyond themselves, to realize that not everything has to revolve around them or cater to their every want. And so they consider anything that doesn't cater to them is a direct insult to them.

For all of these "slaps to the face" that are talked about, I have yet to hear about a BioWare employee entering a player's house and physically slapping them in the face. That I'd want to hear about.

And, please don't let those kinds of people ruin it for the rest of us. Like Maximus said, there will always be those people.

Beat me to it.

I love seeing that you guys (the CM team) are, you know, fans of the game, whether it's commiserating about PVP, popping up in the fanfiction area, or enthusing about speeders. Thanks for coming out to play.

On the more serious side of things, the uptick in communication about big issues is really appreciated, and I hope it continues to 2.0 and beyond.

Bro, grow a thicker skin and some patience. The communication we've seen has been outstanding since Eric has taken over. They're more present, more open, more honest, more friendly, and giving more and better (and more forward-looking) information than they ever have before.

Don't be the cranky apple that forces EA management to stuff them back into their cages!

This.
Very much this.

Don't let a few whining idiots ruin it for the rest of us.

As you guys are aware we are exploring a host of different options. Many of those options from the thread we created previously asking for everyone's input. (and thank you for that, that feedback has been extremely helpful to us)

Although I don't have details for you yet, I want to assure you that we are talking about the APAC servers on a daily basis. As soon as we have those details nailed down and ready to go, you will have them.

I know this is a "more of the same" kind of post but it is the truth. We are very actively working on confirming up the details and I will tell you about them the second that I can.
