I just started playing a month ago, and I already can see how limiting these gameplay changes are.
Isn't that normal for anything any dev tends to do that has a major change in an MMO? People never like change, and always complain about it without giving it a chance. I've been on the PTS, and it doesn't look as bad as people think, however with the Balance not working on FP's or Ops, I admit I can't see how those 2 will work. Thus far the PTS changes I've seen aren't bad, other then the UI appearance for the character sheet (which clearly says Work in Progress on it).

Yea I really don't like they TRY to do all things in one window with 7.0 UI. Why I started this thread:
https://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=998316

Still I don't like many other THINGS, mostly that they removed some abilities, but that I'll warm up to in time. But NOT really likely the removal of Combat Proficiencies--as that was A LOT more option to change your Play Style.

Now most of the same DISCIPLINE, will be almost all the same.

Also it's terrible how pay to win this is going to be now. You can only get end game gear if you're a subscriber now. 306 was open to anyone who had subscribed once. Now they want this "constantly updating system" so people have more incentive to constantly subscribe. Total cash grab, and feels gross every time they talk about "streamlining or player experience". I feel like this is a squeeze and the community needs to respond or it'll only be downhill from here.

Giving an incentive to subscribe does not make it P2W.

P2W is if the only way to get the gear is to purchase it with Real life money (Not CC's) from the Cartel market. The fact you can get it in game means it's not P2W.
