I've written it before, pretty much since his day one, and I write it again:

Let me quote Sheldon Cooper for you: "Oh, I so informed you thusly!"

I never considered the predecessor as bad as his reputation was. Slowly, others realise this as well. I wished he would have gotten the chance to go through with his vision. At least for me, it would have been much better than the current state.

Yes, please: WHEN? Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter 2020?

@CharlesBoyd: I generally like your writing style and your way of presenting things (e.g. here). It could be considered a positive example by everyone at BW.

I do have one little question though, nothing exactly big or world-changing, but something I felt you guys kind of forgot. You teased Commodore Pardax in Hearts and Minds, but she still hasn't replaced Admiral Aygo for Imperial players yet. Are we going to get a formal introduction to her soon, or does Aygo's retirement plan leave him with some months before contract termination?

Also, I do hope the check-in with Kira will mean more romance stuff.

Thanks for the update Keith, are the games numerous bugs (both old and new) going to be looked at over the course of this year as part of the quality of life focus? It would be a nice pace change purely to have most of these quashed if at all possible, to help improve the game for both old and new players alike.

Will the Scourge romance bug be fixed by then? Actually, will it be fixed by 6.1 instead? That'd be good.

I am excited to see this! Class companion interactions have been neglected, so a move in this direction is very welcome. The last two classes I replayed were trooper and agent, coincidentally, so these are very on-point for me. Looking forward to these 1-on-1 scenes and hopeful for more in the future.

Felix Iresso next or soon, please. Would be good to see how his readjustment to "normal life" is going. Also, I know another trooper companion isn't likely immediately, but it'd be great to hear from Aric Jorgan before much longer too. On balance, though, I favour companions who got the brief two-or-three minutes non-chapter (and thus non-repeatable) returns getting a bit more focus. Jorgan doesn't fit into that category, but he's one of my favorite companions, so I can't help but advocate for him regardless. Also when choosing who to focus on next, I think companions with issues that maybe weren't fully explored in their short return scenes would be good. For instance, what happened with Risha during the timeskip was huge, but she barely discusses it in her return. Maybe she simply doesn't want to talk about it... but then one would wonder if the experience completely turned her off anything political, what direction she wants to move in now, etc.

If I find myself more often advocating for Republic companions, it's because they more often received the brief returns, and thus are more in need to content to rebalance the situation. But I expect you will probably want to do one Republic and one Imperial companion per iteration of this kind of content. That's not the end of the world. There are lots of great class companions on both sides.

Anyway, to sum up... as you can see from my wordy burbling... this is exactly the sort of content I want to see more. I'm delighted you're moving in this direction.

Agreed and you said it far more succinctly & diplomatically than me lol

Trust me, so am i ... my other post was just me hating against the very notion of story spoilers (tag or not) being the only significant details we got. (so far)

Nuance can be tricky to deliver---and digest---nowadays.
