So Please BW bring out the guild ships before catering to the PVP players.
It's not that hard to design a map and it seems they only do so when they make a new tile set for an operation or flashpoint. There has been only 2 new warzones since release so I have no idea what you are talking about. Both PvE and PvP content have came out pretty much equally. The problem is they fired most of their staff a year ago and now there is only a small staff working on all the content for the game.

MMORPGs are supposed to be designed and catered for both PvP, PvE and Co-Op. It's how the genre was born. So stop whining about PvPers.

So for Guild ships, Damion Schubert has said a few times recently that it's "his baby" and while it's not coming soon, it's something he really wants to do and do right. That's the only information we have.
Then why are there so many PVP fixes if the are PVE focused game? That is because the PVP players complain.
I just want the guild ships that have been promise since pre-launch

Its not just guild ships, there is zero love in this game for guilds. 1 Update a 5% Xp bonus for members which if you asked guild leaders what they would like to see would not be in a top 50, and 1 re-hash of the same item to 10% is all we have had in 17 months.
Thank god we have a guild website as no mail, pathetic message of the day system, 500 character cap issue and more but its something we have learnt to live with and cant see any more guild love in the foreseeable future

What are these PVP fixes you speak of?

Do you realize the last pvp content update was last December, in 1.6?

I'm pretty sure there was a quote not too long ago saying Guild Ships hadn't even been started and won't until the SSSP is done. As far as your second quote goes I'm pretty sure they reduced the PVP team to one PVP guy, so there goes your regular updates on that end.

They never said it won't be done until SSSP is done. And PVP team isn't one guy.

I guess you count all the times that they tried to fix the broken bolster system as pvp updates. You do realize that all the things they've had to fix on live are/were problems that were reported on the PTS, but were ignored and pushed to live anyway don't you? So no, I don't count fixing something they released that was broken when it was released as pvp updates.

The information regarding guilds was asked about at the Los Angeles Community Cantina. In the Q&A it was stated that there were things in development but would take time. A more direct answer was provided later in a slightly quieter discussion. The plans for expanding guild functionality are somewhat large. They are also very interconnected which makes applying it piecemeal near impossible. There will be a point in the future that we will see a large upgrade to guild functions and guild support. Guild ships were part of the conversation and they seem to be tied into the larger plan. No release date was discussed but the fact is that guild ships are not off the drawing board and as long as they don't drastically alter plans than I believe we will see them eventually.

One thing everyone seen to forget is that SWTOR is the first MMO for Bioware and they have shown it, they are used to develop solo games and the lack of social features has shown it.

The guild ship is an illusion and it won't happen because it needs a lot of time which developer don't have as they have to compete with the demands of EA and the financial demands.

I recall that last year they promised big things coming on our way for guilds and so far the only thing we've got is the 10% xp, Please BW don't insult us through peanuts at us. You even have recognized that the majority of subscribers are guild members and the fact that the latest financial reports indicate that the subscribers numbers are down again goes to show the lack of dedication towards community content
