I already hit the level cap, there's really nothing I can do with this now until it goes up. I imagine a lot of people are in the same situation. If the cap isn't being raised for another week then you really won't have much of a problem with server load....
I think he means this coming week. It's a common mistake even I make.
Well it says "next week" and its posted on the 18th being the first day of this week, so unless they bump everyone to Commander at midnight the 25th, theres simply not going to be enough time for anyone to rank up the last LCDR ranks and get to Commander and start testing the T3 content.
And as the news states a lot of the stuff thats come up in Open Beta was stuff that couldn't have possibly have been foreseen in closed beta where people did get some T3 and beyond content testing in.
48 hours to test the T3 content is not enough time if we have to get to Commander from LCDR6, given the rate of play most people have it will take that 48 hours just to get to Commander as it is.
Lots of stuff about right now (especially the level cap, which needs to be gone NOW), but nothing to give hope for the future, nothing beyond iterative "what you see right now will be made less bad" stuff. We REALLY need some big picture, three, six, twelve month goals on how the game is intended to grow.
