    Oh what a mistake.  Guild leaders are generally power users.  They have a completely different vision of the game than most players.  CCP tried that with their council and that is a known failure.

    I think it's pretty cool. But of course, Bioware just can't do anything right for some people around here.

    Do attendees get a title for going?

    Totally agree. Poll ALL of the players not a few in one niche.

    Why is it a guild summit and not an open player summit? The equivalent of the SWTOR User Group?

    Guild leaders are not the sole voice that is relevant here.

    I have nothing to add except that I agree. Well said.

    Maybe you should be happy that they are trying to show concern for their game and get ideas and perspective? It is people like you who constantly negative nancy every move they make that tears this community down.

    I have listened to the complaints of the game from forums, youtube and listened to my guild members. I will be going to the summit to voice over the concerns of the games current state and future state. Now if you want me to bring anything up and get a discussion rolling let me know and I will add it into my page and a half of notes.

    As someone above said, Guild Leaders are a generally a different beast to the average player. They should invite all, then do a random draw for all that applied.

    Why just the Guilds?

    The biggest problem with this game is for the people who aren't in a Guild who find it difficult to find things to do and stick with the game.

    Bioware needs to pick the best critics on the varius MMORPG sites (including their own) and invite those people if they want to save their game, which is clearly sinking pretty fast judging biy the posts on their forum.

    And this roundtable is a sign that Bioware gave up and finally is ready to listen to the experts................the player base.

    While I agree , this is not an entirely valid concern either , a huge percentage of players ARE in guilds , and there's nothing stopping them from expressing their concerns to the guild master . A guild master's duty should be to give voice to all guild members , not to attend the summit with his personal views and agenda only .
