They don't want developers. They want people who actually play game for fun /grin and not who design it, which makes sense.

 

Edit. They already have their own developers to test it.

Apparently they got their test plan from the plot of a movie called "The Experiment" starring Forrest Whittaker.

Well... they must have reasons why they don't want to do it., otherwise they would not state is so firmly.

Hmm not bad... not bad. Maybe they are learning...

 

I would like to get excited about this but I personally can not. I don't want the Hutt Cartel to be an Expack content for both Factions... I want the Hutt Cartell to be a new THIRD FACTION for Player characters. There is absolutely no reason why it could not have been made into one. This time in Star Wars Lore would and could have allowed for it.

Too late now. This sort of decision can not be undone. 

I hope the best for the new Testers and I hope RotHC has a good final phase so it's a very well working and bug free ExPack. (We can always hope).


Nothing to see here... just another MMO Ghost....

BW/EA always have reasons 'why they don't want to do it'. Remember why they didn't want to do free-roaming space? 'Because the players didn't want it'. Remember why they didn't want to add a LFG fuction? 'Because it would harm the community'. Remember why they didn't add pazzak and swoop racing? 'Because it would hurt immersion'.

I'm rather convinced they'll listen to the on site tester feedback as much as they listened to the beta feedback.... :-/

If Makeb has no dynamic content, sandbox features or day/night change, why even get another planet with more of the same?

BioWare is damned if they do, damned if they don't.  It's unbelievable how anything positive this forum can change into poison.

It's really hard to believe it.

They were busy adding other things to the fabulous expansion.

They'll check account names, then post history. We all know who will get picked.

The problem is, they don't need to please those people. It's the 2 million people that left the game.

It's pretty standard really.  People familiar with the development process will go in with a more biased approach towards testing, which is something they already have.  Instaed, they want regualr people who won't "over-think" the process, and instead just play the way normal people do (with regular reports and submittals of course).

Bioware is sleeping in the bed they made, nothing more.  They released a crappy half-finished game, and people left.  Then they tried to revive it by implementing a crappy restriction-riddled F2P model.  Reap what you sow.

Because they don't want anyone to be able to tell them how stupid their ideas are with any sort of authority.

There's limits on all of that buddy.

Not to mention the limit on the number of hotbars available (idiotic), the limits/ban on something as rudimentary as hiding your helmet (any F2P/B2P/game in existence offers it for free), or locking out companion costumes unless you pay. Besides, who is going to run a flash point after they've exhausted their 3 or so loot rolls for the day? No one.

 

The entire free to play model for the game is broken, admit it. Bioware is completely inept with handling an MMO, and its been painfully obvious since The Old Republic came out. It's even worse now, considering how the most recent titles they've released are many times seen as the weakest in the company's career, and that the two big wigs jumped ship just as things started sinking.

Thanks for the info OP. I hope SWTOR staff steps up and makes SWTOR an eventual winner for everyone.

One need only look at other free to play or buy to play offerings to see just how restrictive SWTOR's model is. Just take a look at TSW, GW2, LOTRO, or TERA's upcoming f2p model. If SWTOR's model were closer to its competitors, I would likely go back to the game.

Playing - FFXIV, TSW
Played - FFXI, WoW, Lineage 2, Guild Wars, Aion, SWToR, LotRO, GW2, TERA, Rift, ESO
