It's insuting to this game's history.
Unfortunately, some people complained loudly that we were getting too much story content with the chapters. Bioware listened to them and stopped releasing the monthly chapters. So, now we only get content two or three times a year.

Which wasn't without reason, afterall new Ops/FPs nearly stopped being released during that time. But that doesn't excuse why new story content is such an uninmaginative low effort. Imp vs Rep Malgus Corellia perpetual war-that-doesn't-progress state rehash. If anything, given fewer oppurtunities for story updates, they should've ensured it was the highest quality possible. Instead, the most intriguing part of the post-KOTFEET era is... Scourge/Plague subplot which is basicaly the finale of the KOTFEET era and has nothing to do with Imp vs Rep lol.

Sigh. Unless something major happens or changes, I have rock bottom expectations for future story updates (sans Scourge/Plague thing maybe). Ossus & Onslaught prove they have no clue how to make renewed Imp vs Rep feel fresh and interesting again and thus the overall story. People complained Episodes 7-9 played it too safe and rehased too much yet Ossus/Onslaught is far bigger offender.

Still better than content that lasts you 20 minutes.

I didnt stick around for that, but i do for this. Theres more content besides the story. That is what lasts.

More interested in seeing news of new planets (with dailies/heroics) FP's, WZ's and OP's. Story is the cream on top, it's not the core of the meal and it can never be. We consume it far faster than it can be made.

Dont forget to give them wet noodles for weapons, age them 60 years and give them a little stick to stand on. In the good SW trooper tradition they should always miss with attacks and kill us of sheer boredom.

Not for me. For me story is the core and reason I subscribe.

If you think being stunned for 6 seconds then knocked down for another 6 or more seconds then knocked back 15 meters is a fun way to start a fight, that's you. It's annoying, not fun. I don't care if they hit harder, being unable to do anything for the first 20 seconds of a fight is not a fun game. If you like that system, by all means sit back and watch your comp do all the fighting.

That's also why I play SWTOR. I really hope the devs don't neglect future story content. :/

They're very quick to jump to next year ""10th Anniversary"" when this year's only just beginning lol. Gives me major ""well not much is happening this year"" vibe. Unsurprised if this is true, but if I'm being optimistic they probably have some stuff planned but can't talk about it yet.

Same here. I still feel sad when I think of the truncated KotFE/ET story and what could have been if we had 3x16 chapters. I do enjoy the story updates we currently get, but I wish they were more substantial and frequent.

The proplem is that we are more then likely not going to be getting anymore big story updates for a while yet since they are focusing on DA4 just like when Anthem was in development so don't go getting your hopes up.

This game is on a barebones staff and it shows the quality of not only the story but also the content we are getting is poor to say the least and i wish it was better but sadly it isn't, i love this game i have been a early supporter of it to the point i had to import it since poor austalia wasn't in the first wave of releases so i didn't get my collectors edition i paided for thanks for that bioware. This game honestly deserves way better then what we have now and you would of thought they would of learned from Anthem that putting all your eggs in one basket is a bad move but it looks like they are set to repeat the same thing again lets just hope they do a better job with dragon age because if not then i think we know what will be next on EA's cutting block.
