Will EA be able to keep their claim of content every 6 weeks?  Or will it come and go as needed, like the enhanced website community/GM interaction .. or the Q&A sessions ...

 

I guess still no word on the double secret space flight sim..  Or was [HEROIC] Space Combat what they were referring to all along.  Thanks for the update though!

 

/twiddle

It was 6 weeks from 1.4 to 1.5 and probably another 6 weeks or less for the 1.6, after that probably Makeb. It wont be easy to bring new content every 6 weeks, hope they can keep doing it.

The HEROIC space combat mission is not the ¨secret space combat proyect¨, by the end of the year we will know more about that i guess.

For what, releasing less and less content?

I guess when they stop content updates altogether youll be infinitly in love with it?

These kind of posts are so immature. If the guy likes it, he likes it. Who are you to say otherwise?

Ehm, who are you again?

And where have i said otherwise? In fact ive written a condition where he will totally be in love with the game, considering his statements.

Obvious fanboism is obvious.

They failed at first step. And so you know what fanbois on forums were saying?

"They didnt say there will be an update every 6 weeks, but that they AIM to have an update every 6 weeks" lol

And even if they stick to 6 weeks it equates 1 proper update every 6 MONTHS. Thats slow. VERY slow.

It's so obvious there are marketing people from EA/Bioware on these forum, getting paid for subtly hyping the game, that I really don't understand how can you get upset over their threads and posts. Let them earn their salary and just ignore them if it bothers you so much.

Granted, this is common for other games and forums as well, but some are more subtle than others.

Meh, i dont get upset, i just enjoy pointing their obviousness :)

And 1,5 was so...small...i mean 1 small area with 6 dailies (yawn) and questline that mostly consisted of reusng old content and very complex "spawn thingy randomly placed on teh planet and let player wonder aimlessly maybe for hours to find itx5 (old)planets(zones)" yawn

1,6 is warzone (ok) and some rehashed space missions with doubled hp/damage opponents so you must upgrade your gear (big big yawn)

The new Ancient Hypergate Warzone is actually just a dumbed down version of Warhammer On-Line's "Khaine's Embrace" scenario. Instead of 12 vs. 12, it's 8 vs. 8.

It has been even further dumbed down that instead of needing to capture both pylons (as it was playable at E3) for the explosion to trigger, now it's just on a two and a half minute timer.

But whatever. Go Gabe go.

Tangental, EA has decided to spin Mythic off from Bioware again. Mythic is its own (albeit fallen from grace) own division again.

While the "new" Heroic space missions are just cheap rehashes which everyone access to the editor could create in 1 hour, they do serve a purpose and that is adding a layer of "endgame" (grind) outside the Flashpoints and raids and pvp.

So, adding daily additional farm missions for gear progression isn't all that bad. The geargrind system isn't great itself but adding options is a positive thing.

From the looks of it, it appears to be another month of treadmilling..  round and round!!..  Upping the degree of dificulty is not new content.. In fact it's lazy sloppy designing..  Don't get me wrong.. I'm not saying that tier progression shouldn't be in games, but I view them as side mini-games.. and should in no way be confused as "new" content or be the focus of any patches..

If they dont award BH comms then they are not part of the geargrind, and are just as useless as other dailies (those were obsolete back in January).

Rewards:

When you complete the Space Combat Mission for the first time, you are rewarded with 20 Fleet Commendations and 7175 credits.

This may allow you to pick up a new quest for the Space Mission you just completed that reward 2 Black Hole Commendations, 5 Daily Commendations and 40 Fleet Commendations (info provided by Red-Dwarf). Currently this quest can be repeated instantly but might be changed on live servers.


The first set of dailys have a purpose, and that was money to counter the money sinks.
consumables and orange gear modding as well as crafting over and over for a crit with aug slot on rakata belt / bracers etc.

Don't get me wrong i'm no fan of gear treadmill at all. But additional options to keep one busy are not bad, even for such a system.

You are right, it wanst 6 weeks, it was 8, because a 2 weeks delay is really an HUGE PROBLEM. But dont worry the 1.6 will come in 6 weeks or less.

Its a huge problem because it was miniscule update with already finished content.

And you know that how? As you said 6-8-10 weeks its all the same to them lol.

But as we all know WZ was playable back in august ha ha ha

I rofl on this on.

Do you really think that nobody loves this game? That if you think it's bad everybody has to think the same way?

Take my word, there is plenty of people who love SWTOR and who want it to succeed. I am one of them and not the only one. 

Please do not insult people who bring information about the game and it's new content and who express their love for game.

Thanks

and Makeb.

Yah, they way they strecth it it could last literary YEARS rofl. And then they conclude updates are slow....lol

Yah dudes, speed it up, 1,6 is MINISCULE just as 1,5...

And when is NEW STORY CONTENT (you know, one that was supposed to be main thing in SWTOR) coming?

Theres no space project.

You expect a six week schedule will be massive? Let's get reasonable.

Well, considering they claimed before they will have full update every month...raising that to 6 weeks would be OK.

Raising that to 6 months...well thats quite a change. And dont forget, no story updates, just mundane generic stuff like few dailies/wz/raid/FP.

Its still paifully slow, man i almost feel sorry for not liking Rift rofl

4 weeks for this kind of miniscule updates is TOPS. If they cannot churn it out faster...reeks of skeleton crew.

that would equate 3 normal updates a year. Anything less is DEFINATELY not worth money they ask for (considering competition, and, well, general quality of the product) and i wouldnt call it AAA title any more.

I am happy with them releasing this amount of content every six weeks, as opposed to games like WOW releasing maybe 2.5 times this much twice per year.  MMOs are perfect for these kinds of minor and persistent updates.

 

Unfortunately, I am severely let down by the cost of HK for alts and the lack of story quest dialogue for him.  HK feels watered down.
