So far, BioWare’s Community Team seems to sticking to Joveth Gonzalez’s Message to the Community that was posted two days ago. The team has interacted with the forum community more than they have in previous months, and even taken the time to answer some questions and respond to bug reports. The list of General Forum topics, overall, is more constructive than purely negative, and it’s a nice change to see the yellow staff icons lighting up the list of threads.
One subject that received a staff member response was regarding the lack of a ready check system in SWTOR. Ready check systems are very helpful in numerous games for raiding and PUG situations, and it seems like adding one into SWTOR wouldn’t be overly difficult on behalf of the developers. Here is what Matt Boudreaux, Gameplay Programer, replied with:

Many people in the studio are looking forward to a Ready Check system as well. We have one in the works, but unfortunately, I can’t give an ETA. Rest assured we hear you and things are in motion.
Yeah, it’s kind of a Soon™ response, but hey– at least it’s a response. As well as a sign that, yes, features are being worked on.
