Double XP weekend will be nice since I am working that weekend and can use it to pass the time. Kind of a long time to wait for the Gree event, but hopefully one of the 'surprises' is something else.

Kind of ho hum, I guess, but I'm not big on PvP or space PvP so it's not really aimed at me.

Did I overlook the "holiday" part of that article?

I see no mention of holiday events.

I hope it's hidden within the word "surprises" ... Anyway, I at least hope that the Robe will be available again ...

1. Commando/Mercenary Treatment
When a group of developers ignore the complaints of a class in an mmo until the players of said class reroll, quit or just become too tired to complain. Thus solving the root cause of said complaints. This is followed up by the developers patting each other's backs and congratulating each other on a job well done.
1. Bioware is really putting powertechs through the commando/mercenary treatment. Each patch powertech's think their class can not get worse, when it does.

2. If the RNG gods align, we can be one shot by a Boss mechanic, and there is nothing we can do. Us assassin tanks are getting the Commando/Mercenary treatment.

3. Because of Bioware's consistent use of the commando/mercenary treatment one will find a lack of commandos and mercenaries queing for the 4 v 4 ranked arenas.

The one just after servers shut down for good. I hope this is something that never gets implemented.

Thank you Bruce for taking the time to let the community know of these exiting new features. Opening up communication is definitelly a step in the right direction.
Keep it up.

Good initiative with the character names. Otherwise it's all too-scarce. Again. :[ Nothing specific, just "more stuff to be excited about that you already know is in works."

Big question about the name wipes:

Say there is someone you know who falls into the category of getting their name wiped, but they plan on coming back and and want to make sure they keep it? Do they need to re-subscribe to reserve their name, or can they just log in Preferred and show there was some activity?

You want feedback?


MORE CLASS STORY.

Start listening to the people who have been asking for it at almost EVERY CANTINA EVENT, as well as in the forums.

There's my feedback. Great work on the other stuff, but don't brush off those playing the game for our character's story...
