BioWare says ‘SWTOR is absolutely being supported into the future’
BioWare Producer Ben Irving has a new letter out for Star Wars: The Old Republic players reassuring them of BioWare’s committment to the game. “Is SWTOR going to receive ongoing support?” he writes. “The answer is absolutely yes.”

Irving apologizes to fans for bugs and reminds everyone that BioWare has stepped up its content cadence during the past expansion cycle, to the point that he declares that “Knights of the Fallen Empire is the most successful expansion we have ever produced.”

“In the eyes of all of our partners, SWTOR is a huge success. BioWare supports this game. EA supports this game. Lusasfilm supports this game. Disney supports this game. In fact, for a game that has been live for almost 5 years, we are receiving an incredible amount of support from all of our partners. It’s both amazing and humbling. If there is anything I would like people reading this to take away it’s this: SWTOR is absolutely being supported into the future. We have a lot of content coming over the next few months and even more exciting things to talk about later this year. All of us here at BioWare appreciate your ongoing support and we are committed to providing the best experience possible.”

What about upcoming content?

“The harder part to address, because you have to take my word for it, are all the features and content we are working on that we haven’t yet announced. If you follow Charles Boyd or Paul Marino on social media you may have seen some hints of this. The team recently visited our MoCap studio to create new animations. Charles Boyd spent a week at our VO studio recording more lines of dialogue for future story content. The two most exciting things to share are that our writers are deep into the plot summaries for the next season’s worth of chapters and we have started the early design phase for new, non-chapter, content. You all know the drill here, I can’t talk about any of the specifics (yet) but what I can say is that we have some REALLY cool stuff to talk about later this year and the whole SWTOR team can’t wait to announce it. Soon. TM.”

Okay first of all this is utterly B.S. from the start to finish. I just came back to this game and only one server is actually populated on the U.S. side and I wouldn’t even dare to try and send my toons there simply because they are even over charging the rate to do so. Bioware/EA is only screwing themselves at this point by showing their greed. If a game goes F2P then you don’t do one thing. Screw the F2P players over so much they are so pissed they leave. Example: they put a cap on how much credits a f2p and perf status so bad it’s a shame. The perf status is 350 k this means not only does a f2p player have it worse but why would he/she want to stick around? Bioware/EA what you fail to understand is how to use f2p and perf players to gain income. Say we have a f2p player or perf player who see an item he or she wants. They buy that item for say about 1 million credits so the person who actually sold that item is a sub base player and what he/she thinks next is since that item sold he would buy a few more and sell them for another 1 million or above. (Notice the cycle)? Players in MMOs can be greedy and it does not help one bit if you are locking f2p and perf players out of the loop by reminding them about subbing all the time. You are close to your cap (then sub), you can’t change your outfit (then sub), you can’t get a title (then sub), and I can go on and on… Seriously it’s coming to an ad zone. I came back to this game just to see if I wanted to play again to see if some type of changes were made but I noticed not only has the game not changed but even my whole damn guild left the game. And if anyone have the brains to understand and take notice you will know that the server screen does not show the population rate of each server. (Kind of sneaky of you Bioware/EA) to not show something you are not proud of now.

paragonlostinspace vicariousfan TiaNadiezja For the MMOs I play, in terms of good writing. TSW > SWTOR > RIFT > GW2. That’s right, Rift has better writing than GW2, at least if you take the time to read it.

vicariousfan Smiggins Yeah, I don’t mean to be insensitive to the loss of the game.  Just looking at the financial aspect.  Sandbox games are niche.

He starts the letter by saying this was the first time he’d actually written a post on the forums…

Problem Numero UNO.  Communication = success!

  Now I find that interesting. My wife and I find SWTOR’s writing rather B rating and TSW’s to be the better. Talking about characters, quests etc. it’s not bad mind you, I just felt it lacked over all after playing through multiple classes.

 Want to talk painful though, talk about GW2’s personal story for your characters, now that’s some painful stuff. Seriously lame, the wife and I just snicker our way through it anymore. I love the game world and interacting with npcs out in the game world but the interactions with your character in the personal story are so one dimensional and unsatisfying.

schmidtcapela TiaNadiezja Lucas Arts didn’t want KOTOR3.   Obsidiean begged and begged them to let them make it but they didn’t think a Single Player RPG would be succesful

yeah.. you can blame that entirely on Lucas Arts

paragonlostinspace TiaNadiezja i love TSW but the writting is B movie writting at best and it fits the game.  However SWTORs writing is 100% spot on for Star wars.
