NORMAL Logic would dictate, that no it didn't.

HOWEVER....

BIOWARE Logic: OMG YES IT DID GAIZ I CANT BELIEVE U WERENT THAR TO ENJOY IT!!!!! BTW, BAI MOAR CARTEL PACKS PREASE!

*facedesk*
Patch 2.7.1 - We're more concerned about getting the latest greatest Cartel Cash Market item out, then making sure our servers are adequately stable for gameplay. You might be lagging folks, but look! A Black varayactly and a reskinned armor coming soon!

*sigh* I wonder how BioWare feels at this point honestly. They did something to please a small percentage of people whining about a feature and only managed to tick off the general population of the MMO as they did it by not doing it correctly the first time.
Well they've patched their patches so much now that they've probably built up an immunity to fans complaints.

*sigh* I wonder how BioWare feels at this point honestly. They did something to please a small percentage of people whining about a "exploit" that really only harmed the person(s) who were doing it. Yet only managed to tick off the general population of the MMO as they did it by not doing it correctly the first time, sad.
It really is sad.


Edit: Honestly I don't think they even bother to read the forums any more, at least the people that will make a difference or voice something or provoke a thought to the developers or people at EA, no offence intended to the forums staff that's just how it feels around here.

Yeah but the high turn over rate on the Dev Team leads one to really wonder about such things. Who wants to bet which team goes next!? My money is on a new Quality Assurance group. Which...hopefully gets done before Makeb.

It will never be the supposed alternate team that makes cartel packs

It's already getting late in the evening here, and I can't help feeling that BW will keep extending until tomorrow. I don't doubt it considering like 5 people in total are working on SWTOR nowadays - EA and their money saving ways and whatnot.
I would agree to an Aion-type LFG system, but not WoW's LFD. We don't need Blizzard's failures in this game.

Was going to make a joke about how they'll outsource the QA team to China but that would probably actually be a good thing.

Quality assurance team? Is that what they call the people on the PTS?
