Standard practice with online game with subs. A company as the right to refuse to service a (ex)customer if they don't owe them anything.

Okay, that's one of the reasons why they turn gaming into a service : Not to owe people anything … But milk them while they can …

I can see a similar thing perhaps becoming true for Microsoft's "OS as a service" agenda …

Well, the current Cartel Packs *are* lacking "something" … The older packs were all so much more fun !

In my opinion, personally, it shows the clear influence of Cynga err Zynga. I can almost smell their "fun pain" in these new packs !

Others say, the game becomes more & more a game made by Mythic - who seem to have replaced all or nearly all of the older Bioware staff of SWTOR … At least they guess / assume so. They say that this game becomes more & more like Warhammer Online.

I saw some comments about that and I'm wondering where it is coming from. I haven't heard about a max exodus from BioWare devs in Austin (they just got Draw Karpyshyn back a few months ago too) and on top of it WAR was F2P for its last few days of existence only. It was also a PvP oriented game, SWTOR still seems firmly focused on PvE story stuff so far.

It seems that PvP is handled by several Mythic devs now - but I can't proveit right now.
From this, people often draw a line to the rest of SWTOR.
But apart from that,. there indeed left several Bioware employeed to ME:A.
For example the Operations designer, as far as I've heard.

It's this time of the year. No not Christmas, but May the 4th.

It's also the time of the year where I feel compelled to play SWTOR again. Watching Star Wars The Force Awaken might have had something to do with that too.

Now the question is do I continue my Consular I left back in Feb or make a new character. hmm.

There'll be a tiny astromech pet if you log in between … yesterday ? and May 4th.

Me, I'm not able to play within the week anymore : The weather - typical ever-changing April weather here - is driving me nuts so much so much that I can do not much more than relax and sleep after work … Hoping for much more stable weather …
