Awesome stuff! I hope the 1 on 1 moments aren't super short. I'll be happy regardless, but it'd be real nice to have something a little more lengthy.

I like this story deployment setup too. I loved how KotFE was deployed (man I wish we had gotten the whole trilogy). This one has been nice too.

I'm enjoying the story and looking forward to what comes next! I'd like to have more story instances where our companions have a huge thing going on. We got one with SCORPIO. That was cool. We had one with Kira and some with Scourge, and are getting more with her and Scourge. Especially since a lot of returning companions didn't get what they should have when KotET and whatever the third one was got squished together . And more Scions. Please. Make that pay off since as of this point that build up has basically gone nowhere.

I am definitely looking forward to new updates.
The system with the various set bonuses is a lot of fun. Definitely one of the most fun I had with the game.

Finally we can leave the KOTET era behind.

Actually to tell you the truth... IMO the writers do pretty good (for the most part) given what they have to shove into a two minute slot ! Sooo yeah here's hoping that the development team is not taking offense when we suggest that more time (consequently money budgeted ) to companions in general.

Something needs to inspire them to come up for more than two minutes worth of stuff for companions.

And I'd have to say that most of the negativity that many are feeling right now stims from the 6.0 PTS pleading with the team then being promptly ignored.

For me I'd just like to see some of the original ideas (such as interactions with companions) be restored and maybe developed into something really nice.

Granted there will need to be some changes.. More than likely the number of companions available to each class.

No I have no idea as to how the development team would prefer to handle that. I leave that up to them. They have demonstrated that if it is a subject that they really like they can and will do an outstanding job. On the other hand if it is a subject that the team feels "pressured into" from the community well let's just say that things get a bit frustrating for everyone concerned.

I do look forward to the future of the game. I really do. That said: there are several things that I am concerned about and will continue to watch more closely as time progresses.

My first choice would be to try to keep a better more positive spirit about the matter call it cautious optimism (I would suppose) but that is about as honest as I know how to be regarding the entire matter of the game.

Edited to clear up point made about companions.

Keith,

As we are nearing the weekend and next Tuesday is supposed to be the release of the new stronghold, could you please answer some questions :

(1) Are guild going to be allowed more than one stronghold
(2) Cost of the stronghold

Thank you

And we're back to the absolute radio silence that is absolutely deafening. I am deeply disappointed. The end of roadmaps should be accompanied by increased smaller scale plans or I feel you are simply trying not to tell us anything so as to avoid the furor.

I accept that there are things you cannot do; what I feel is unforgivable is the fact that you refuse to have Mr Musco communicate with us. Seriously, how did he need extra help when he fails so miserably at managing this community? What is the extra help doing, precisely? Apparently neither community managing nor assistant community managing involve interacting with said community.

Come on now, after all these years, the one thing that is a given is that there won't be even the smallest acceptable amount of communication from the devs on this board. It's the one thing that we can all rely on. The one constant. I left disappointment (on this matter) behind years ago.

Ontopic... meh.
I'm on this board since 2009 and in the game since beta summer 2011.

Constantly subbed since early start. Unsubbed in October 2021 as a response to the horrible prospect of 7.0.

I myself was saying that they were doing better a while ago. I can only presume the increased communication resulted in them having to read some mean things so they decided to just stop talking to us.

Increased communications didn't really work out the way BioWare wanted; Infact it was alot of B***hing, it was. That was a *Start though, communicating idea's and thoughts back and forth. Much of what's said here seems to fall on deaf ears though Not returning as Faction lackey's, Companion time and ...More Communicating. Everything requires Money , Resources and "Time on Project", I would guess those are why these things are why 6.0 was short and no Companion time. The Expansion story was good just short and limited the same way the Zakuul story was.

Theres always going to be someone complaining. It is, after all, impossible to please everyone, and people who are happy are probably not here glorifying them but playing the game.

There is also the problem of different people have different wants and desires. For example, you mention companion time. Outside of kira and scourge, I personally couldnt really care less. What does infuriate me is the lack of scaling to 75 , which seems to bother no one but me for some reason I cant quite understand.

But what makes me mad above all else is their total lack of caring. Again, how could musco possibly need more help when he seemingly ignores the community hes supposedly managing.
