Don't believe there's a dedicated thread, and since they're starting to release information now, I figure it's time for one.

Status update on this game? Is it dead yet? Have they made being max level any more enjoyable? Are the space missions sandboxy instead of being on rails, or at least PVP space missions?

US server populations are heavy to full every night, so not dead. Seems busier than ever to me. Max level stuff and space missions remain the same. First expansion and level increase is coming sometime in the spring.

So, I realize I'm probably still the only one playing, but Rise of the Hutt Cartel came out yesterday (well, several days ago for preorders, of which I was one) and I'm pretty much blown away by it. Makeb is a pretty amazing planet, both in terms of artwork and technical improvements to the game, and while I'm disappointed that Chapter 3 marked the end of individual class stories, Chapter 4 in RotHC seems suitably epic in scope. Although we'll see how I feel about that after doing the planet 7 more times.

Haven't done the new op (or well, any of the old ones either, I don't really raid), but I hear it's really good as well. There's a couple new minigames, involving macrobinoculars and seeker droids which are okay (but can be frustrating/annoying, albeit in an addictive way).

In any case, 2.0 gets a big thumbs up from me. It seems like they gave a lot for $10.

Do I STILL have to pay to enjoy the game when I was paying all those months ago?

No, you don't have to. You'll be "preferred status". Although my sub's still active, so I can't really speak to what that means specifically.

You will have to purchase the expansion to access the expansion content, but I believe that once you do that you can do everything there as a f2p.

Hmmmm...well I don't wanna purchase an expansion! Sorry but I really enjoyed that game until I realized Jaessa was a psychopath.

So I just got an email, and it seems that they are finally doing PVP space battles, which should have been in the game from the very begining. Have there been any other significant updates or any other reason to even think about coming back?

How is the economy, the population, the lag? Did they ever fix the last boss of the first raid?

In short, is it the same crappy end game from 2 years ago, or has it gotten any better?

I can't really talk about the economy, I'm not sure what would be characterized as good or bad, but the population has been steady and growing for most of the year. They consolidated down to 8 "megaservers" a while back, they're all standard to heavy load every weeknight, heavy on the weekends. I rarely have to wait very long to do anything, whether it's fp's or PvP, and I'm in a guild that's basically just me (meaning I can't ask guildmates....). Sometimes if I'm playing in the middle of the night groupfinder might take a few minutes, but usually during the day and particularly in the evenings, GF (either PvP or PvE) tends to pop, if not immediately, in 5-10 minutes.

I sometimes (but not often) hear people complain about lag, but I've never experienced any in the 2 years I've been playing.

There's now 55 levels in the game, there's, what, 7 ops now, all with SM and HM, and most with NM. There's a number of instanced daily/weekly areas between 50 and 55, with new ones being introduced every few months (ATM it's Black Hole, Section X, Makeb, CZ-198 and now Oricon which was patched in 2 weeks ago, along with two new Operations). They've introduced rated 4v4 arena PvP (still in preseason) as well as 4v4 unrated arenas which pop in addition to the regular 8v8 pvp modes.

I play pretty much 7 days a week, I still haven't started running ops yet (although I plan to soon, I just finished gearing a character for it) and yet, to be honest, I already can't find enough time to do everything I want.

And the new space combat looks like it will be a lot of fun. It's basically completely separate from the ground game with a completely unrelated leveling system. There should be more information about that coming out gradually over the next 6 weeks or so - as I understand it it's still in closed beta, not on the PTS yet for the rest of us. It's scheduled to launch for subscribers at the beginning of December. F2P players will have to wait longer.

Oh, and I've seen a ton of people on reddit and ingame the last several months saying they had come back after leaving for a year, and a number of them have said they've re-subscribed after playing a few days/weeks. It's harder for me to gauge as someone who never stopped, but they have made a lot of quality of life improvements to the game that people seem to like a lot. I think there's still some things they could do (and that I think they're working on), but it's probably by now the game that folks think it should have been at launch.

I'm now well past the point where I've finished every class story (I have, err, 7 level 55 characters, and a couple more above 50), and I'm nowhere close to losing interest. So that probably speaks to the variety of endgame available now. I actually just started doing PvP about two months ago, and I've had way more fun with it than I ever thought that I would. I'm about to get back into HMFPs (there's two tiers of those, one at 50, one at 55) and then start doing Ops.

So the NDA has lifted and I can talk about Galactic Starfighter, the 12x12 pvp space environment being introduced to subs in 3 weeks, preferred in mid-january and f2p in February. I was in the closed beta for the last 5 weekends and it's going to be open for public testing starting this weekend.

It's pretty awesome.

That is all.
