Not that I'm gonna play it on this thing, just wanted to point out that this console may not be the reason for ability puning.

That's the most confusing part of this. They seem to have an agenda that they aren't telling us. Any experienced dev should know these sweeping changes made to all classes will cost them a significant chunk of their most loyal players. And without them their servers are going to turn into ghost towns. They have to know from just a few years ago that ghost town servers don't retain new players, even casual ones, at all.

People have asked for less required key binds for awhile sure...combine a few abilities that only have a single niche purpose alone and that solves the problem... With that said it surely doesn't warrant a major combat system overhaul and a major feature spot in an "Expansion".

The only reason I have the ability to post right now is because I apparently misunderstood the Dev announcement and thought we were going to be able to switch weapons finally... All I wanted was class flexibility IE: Weapon options, Skill options etc... Yes I would like to be able to trade force choke for force lightning on my Jugg... Yes I would like to roll w/ a Blaster Rifle on my Merc BH...

Instead Bioware decided to go in a direction that essentially missed the point and will actually likely turn into a negative for character build choices...

Not sure how they manage to look at player suggestions and always come to the wrong conclusion...
I want my SWG...

Now, we must all fear evil. But there is a specific kind of evil which we must fear most, and that is the indifference of good people.

So true. They should have thought about how PTS gameplay would be perceived by players. Of course, when they take your favorite char, take away half of his abilities and then give you those back, but you can't actually use all of them, you have to pick 1/3 of those and this is called an upgrade, it will drive players nuts. Of course, it will be perceived as a mockery or a bad April Fools joke. Especially if they don't give any reason for it other than this is because they thought you've got too many buttons.
I hope that isn't the whole change and all of it will make sense soon, but now I don't even know how to react to this, really)
