With GW2 on the horizon, this hardly sells me on returning. This has to be one of the least informative interviews I have seen in quite a while. Good luck to them, but its over.

Never once did he look at the camera...probably one of the worst interviews I have ever seen.  Pokket...go back to being pokket, you went from amazing to run of the mill.  Daniel, way to little way to late.  Sorry bud, you had the chance at a stellar triple A title and you flushed it.

I had a bad feeling about this game when the first screenshot was released.

But I never realized the magnitude of just how mundane Bioware would make this game and its subsequent updates.

Pocket is gorgeous.  Much better since ditching the pink hair.  Give her more interviews, she could use the practice and the camera likes her :)

Pocked needs a bit more camera experience and Erickson is just doing what she does (as his media training probably told him to)

When the interviewer Uses that camera (stares into it) and uses sentences like ,could you tell our viewers bla bla bla , then (mostly) the responder will both look at the interviewer and the camera in response.

or perhaps P8D just had some chemistry  going on ;)

When I hear more 'gear progression', I? throw up a little in my mouth.

SWTOR is failing because of the dated design. Only the most loyal fanboys will stick around once GW2 and slew of other great, more innovative MMORPG's release.

Bioware is obviously aware they need to address endgame content and I will be playing it as a result. Pocket did a great job and I cant wait till GW2 releases and you all have something other than haunting SWTOR topics to try and convert people.

Bioware doesn't need to change a thing, they have a paycheck coming in m, and they really could careless about the community. That is what EA breeds, and it is becoming an epidemic

Pokket is close friends with many of the BiOWare ppl so you wont get her asking any tuff questions or talking bad about the game.

Anything to do with ToR the next year will be what would have been in the game if EA ****ed off and let BW finish the game on their own time.   Not saying it would be a different game but it would be less of a cluster **** it is now.

I'm looking forward to it.

I just hope that theyre not doing like World of Warcraft did and just keep adding vertical content.

I'd hate for everytime they add new story they raise the level cap. Thats my big fear. I mean there is no reason my class story has to stop at level cap. I'd love it if gave me a branching class story line.


And goddamn Pokket has some sexy skin. Course she was wearing all black. But I sure do love me some milk smooth complexion.

Marry me, Pokket?  I'll divorce me wife, no prob.

I was gung-ho for TOR pre-launch... I was so confident of the games success that I would have pre-purchased 2 lifetime subs, if offered (for me & my kids).   But once I hit 50, the fun instantly disappeared.    Took advantage of the free month, and let the sub drop.

I'll only come back if there are server merges.  Transfers won't really help the population... you might bolster one server, but at the cost of another.    Cutting 1/2... or 2/3's of the current servers makes sense to me.

Nothing on space combat = not really interested.

I'm tired of not being able to play this game because either:

a) I'm not the right class

b) I don't have the required gear

Same BS as WoW.

Was looking for any mention of addressing SWTOR's many shortcomings - empty zones, poor LFG & dungeon finder, poor guild support, redundant game play, uninspried space combat, etc. etc.  All I heard was gear grind, legacy grind, and a new planet.  I guess the new planet is something.


Not re-subscribing.

Gee guys don't sweat her too much. Probably makes her uncomfortable on her own worksite.


On the other note, I'm actually surprised they are still trying. IMO better to lay everyone off or move them to other projects at this point. Merge all the servers, keep whoever you need to maintain it and let it run its course until the money stops coming in. Then pull the plug and call it a day.

This interview, one in a long line has convinced me that the faboys have managed to make Bioware believe there is NOTHING  missing from this game and it isnt lacking in gameplay variety...such blind defense...there is no chance for this game to rebound and regain subscribers now. They can add 10 new planets and it wont fill in the blackhole that is this games gameplay.

Everything Daniel Erikson says confirms my worst fears for SW:TOR, his constant talking about 'progression mode' 'nightmare mode' loot grind nonsense is precisely why I hated SW:TOR in the beta test when I played, and am even more unhappy with it now. Adding entire new planets won't save this, even when a corporate shill apologist like Erikson keeps trying to leeringly suggest otherwise to Pokket.

Mkay.  As for the interview, Erikson looks like he needs a beer and a hug.  Not that he'd get either from me, but..he looks like he needs it.
