Just a few things here. PVP servers have been done and have never sustained enough interest to make a go. Why do they think this will be different? The expansions have gotten smaller and smaller with reused art work. Back several years ago we got several different appearances on gear both crafted and dropped. Cloth for instance had 4 or 5 different appearances, same with the other types of armor. Now we get 1 for each type.The Panda stuff was simply last years graphics with new stats. MOST of the lockbox gear was as well. The boost tokens always came with a bundle of gear. The appearance of said gear was unique, until this year. They simply used old stuff and reset the stats. Totally disappointed. They have gutted trade skills completely, The Master crafted gear was always the best gear you could get for a tier except for raid gear. Now it is a joke. They corrected some of it with the new expac but LOCKED it down requiring a pattern. I can understand a pattern for a signature line or epic item, we have had those for years. But to make it so crafters have to get lucky enough or pay the outrageous prices for the patterns is wrong.The real reason was because you did not make theis a new tier for harvesting you came up with the patterns as a way to slow down the crafting of the new gear. You already have the recipes LOCKED behind completing TS SIG timeline. So why were the patterns needed? Time was a crafter could make money selling what they make. Except for a few things forget doing that. When crafting handcrafted items, you always could sell the items to a vendor for the cost of the fuel. Now said items are No Value? Really it takes the fuel cost, cost of materials (time to gather them etc.) and time to make the items. And suddenly they slap a no value tag on them? Does Darkpaw hate crafters so much they are trying to get rid of us? I know some developers have said they wish crafting did not exist. Newsflash there are A LOT of crafters in the game. Play my way? REALLY. They launched a new race. It has always been so a low level character can do quest to find out lore. BUT the quest for the lore on the Var Shir is locked behind a level 120 gate. REALLY we get the race but unless we are 120 we cannot get to their village and get any lore? I started a Var Shir on both my accounts, was disappointing that there was no new starting area and a village to base out of, then found out that to get the lore and to the village I needed to be 120. I ENJOY the journey and was looking forward to it. But now I do not play either toons. Play my way? REALLY. You launched the Daiku Corral content. But unless my toon has completed the adventure Sig time line it is locked to me. Play my way? REALLY We crafters SHOULD be able to get into ANY content that a like level adventurer can PERIOD. I should not have to unlock it through the adventure SIG line. And before you say it is that way because a low level adventurer would get killed etc. The toons I am talking about are all level 120 adventures I have not completed the sig line adventures because I have a hard time doing the zones solo. I hasve completed the TS SIG time line of the toons so can fly but when me and a couple guildies wanted to go in to Daiku Corral I do not have the option. Play my way? REALLY. You are really big on PLAY YOUR WAY. But the reality is you force us to PLAY the way you want us too. When the moon 1st came out we could not fly. Reason was given our mounts were not used to the gravity. FYI lower gravity would make it EASIER to fly, HARDER to control. You had a great opportunity to make a FUN interaction, NOPE cannot fly. SO we get our mounts unlocked to fly which was really to help hide the lack of content for that expansion. Then the new one comes out. We cannot fly again. Really SAME moon, same gravity what changed? What about a Vah Shir who has lived it whole life on the moon? They cannot fly? The real reason was to FORCE us to go through the signature lines to unlock it again. This was ANOTHER gate that was used to help us not realize that we got sold a VERY small expansion with almost ALL of the assets repurposed from earlier content. If you do not raid 50 to 75% of the last several expansions are not usable. The gutting of the trade skill stuff on top of that means maybe 15 to 25% is of use to many of us none raiders. I do not know who is making these decision. BUT a word of advice YOU are KILLING this game.
