Now, before I get into the Operations portion of this article, which will be my
longest section, I thought Iâ€™d talk about the issue of boredom. What can be done to
fix this problem? Pretty simple, give us more to do in between PvP, dailies and
raids. Like what? Well Sabacc is by far the most obvious and possibly the easiest
thing to implement.
Sabacc is so long overdue, it defies logic why it is not in the game â€“ and I have
yet to see a reason from a gold post of what, if any, potential roadblocks there
would be. Sabacc does not need to be about gambling, it could purely be about
ranking, but adding a quick and fun activity that you can sit on the fleet (or
better, Nar Shaddaa casinos) and occupy your time for hours on end would be a very
welcome addition and change of pace.
The â€œSuper Secret Space Projectâ€ offers a bit of hope. I think a lot of people are
looking forward to putting the stars back into Star Wars. I personally still hope to
see an operation and a PvP match that involve space combat in some way.
The little things are what fills your time. The fleet is currently the place to sit
and stare at nothing. Adding additional activities, like an arena in the fleet, would
be a vast improvement to my general time wasting. A swoop racing track, or something
along those lines, would be a nice addition as well.
There are other little things outside those bigger activities as well. I remember
when the game was being announced and the first time I heard there would be no
swimming in the game. My disappointment was not about the lack of immersion that
caused, though it plays a small part, but things like being able to swim and fish â€“
or cook and dance arenâ€™t just things for role-players. Players of all calibers like
to relax, escape into their virtual world, and do activities like these just to fill
their time. The little things matter in keeping players happy, bring on the space
