Hello and welcome to the official Q&A thread for questions to be answered for the June 29th, 2012 Q&A blog post.

As a reminder, we’ll be starting up a weekly Q&A blog series in which we will select questions from the community and post answers to them every Friday. We’ll have the next set of answers next week on June 29th, 2012, but before that, we need your questions!

Please use this thread to ask your question (one per community member, so make it count!). On Monday at 2PM CDT (8PM BST/9PM CEST/5AM AEST), we will close this thread, select the questions, and get answers to them for Friday’s blog post.

In order to increase the chances of having your specific question answered and to help us keep the thread manageable, here are some guidelines on asking questions:
  1. Keep your question relatively short. Background details are welcome, but don’t go overboard.
  2. Please actually ask a question. We want to hear constructive feedback elsewhere in the Forums.
  3. Use common sense – we cannot answer everything, especially on far-reaching content.
  4. This should go without saying, but be respectful.
  5. Limit yourself to one question in this thread, please. You can always ask another question next week!
  6. And finally, as a reminder, this is not a discussion thread. Do not comment about what somebody else has posted.

As development plans are always subject to change, questions about future features will often get vague answers which can be repetitive and sometimes annoying. With that in mind, the development team is more interested in questions about current in-game features or systems, or questions about why development decisions were made. You’re still welcome to ask questions about future features and we’ll continue to answer them where appropriate – just expect the occasional ‘soon.’

Any other posts apart from questions in the thread will be removed.

With that being said, please ask away!

Will social points ever be implemented into Player versus Player content -- perhaps as a set amount of points for every person that is in a group before the queue or a set amount of points for MVP voting at the end of a game? It seems like social gear would be obtained through playing with others, no matter which part of the game an individual enjoys.

(This question could also be worded to ask why the developers chose to make social points PvE only.)

Do you ever plan to add the ability to buy new ships or perhaps customize you're own?

I have a question about the free transfers.

Some of us have created mains and alts for both factions, in my case i had all my republic toons on kath hound... and all my empire toons on lord adraas. when the initial transfers came through i moved my republic toons off of kath hound to ebon hawk. the very next day i am now in a pickle i cant move my empire toons off of lord adraas to ebon hawk due to no space avil.

here's my question, will there be any free transfers off of origin servers to any destination servers soon? because my empire toons are now sitting on a ghost town making them pretty much useless. please respond to this because i worked very hard geting some of those empire toons geared.

Crafting boxes being sold on the Tionese and Columi vendors is a GREAT idea! #PowerOfSuggestion

It was revealed that the HK-series droid companion will require both a Republic and Imperial character to unlock. Some players already have all eight character slots on their server filled with characters from a single faction. Is something going to be done to address this, or do these individuals have to delete and reroll if they want to unlock the companion?

I ask because leveling an alt to the needed level is a lengthy process for some, and if they need to reroll to earn the droid when it is released they may need to begin the process now.

How many Medical Droids are in the game for each faction on all the worlds?

Will we be seeing a mentoring/side-kicking system any time soon? It's very helpful in bringing friends into the game when I don't have to roll a whole new toon to play with them and be certain to play whenever they play to be certain we don't outlevel each other.

Is there any discussion on possibly banning or dealing with the issue of speeders on the Fleet stations? If a person in one of the larger speeders parks over an NPC or a terminal is impossible to click said terminal or NPC.
