how were these things not on the "Wall of Stuff We Still Have To DO"? Marking targets and previewing items is a requirement in modern MMOs.

I guess it would be ok not to include them if your target audience are players of 10yo games...

Wall of Crazy is stuff that they want to implement, but that won't make it before launch of the game.

Stuff like target marking and dressing room-preview has been pulled of that post-launch Wall of Crazy for the simple reason that they'll be ingame at launch, not after.
Simple as that.

@(Unverified) it should never have been on the wall of crazy to begin with! Kinda makes me wonder what else is/was on there... friends list? ignore feature?

If "marking" is "crazy" enough to have even made the wall for 30seconds than I'm very, very worry what is still up there

@fallwind Marking is only important for raids really. And nobody should be doing raid in first two weeks post deployment so who cares if it's not in at release really.

The preview option is good that it's in, but definitively not something i would call necessary for launch.

It was called the Wall of Crazy, because of the insane forest of Post-It notes on it, with all ideas and plans, from small to large, that they intended to implement but due to time constraints and deadlines with getting ready for launch, wouldn't be able to make it before launch.

Apparently now they're able to pick up the smaller ideas from that Wall that weren't any top priority before but that they have time to implement.

So you mean we can only do group content at 40 ? That's pretty shitty to me. I thought we could jump into dungeons early on.

A dressing room and marking targets are "crazy"? Really? lawl.

Admittedly, I'm surprised they had the nerve to say those were on the wall of crazy as well. Maybe we're being trolled? I hope so. At the last, the markings should have been considered standard from the beginning.

I'm a little scared if those things just went into the game now and weren't considered mandatory.

MARKING TARGETS IS LAME AND SHOULD NOT BE IN THE GAME IT = EASY MODE. RAIDS SHOULD BE A CHALLENGE AND PLAYERS SHOULD HAVE TO TALK AND PLAN NOT JUST MARK TARGETS. LAME.

@(Unverified) lol, you must not have lead raids in Classic WoW. Talk about a huge pain in the butt getting people on the right mob without visual communication.

Raids in Vanilla WoW were a lot of fun. The ability to assist a target worked fine. Now, raids are so simple so every nitwit can see a skull.

Interesting that appearance tabs and dressing rooms are deemed standard now. I like!

@pcgneurotic An Appearance tab won't be added for TOR as the devs are against one, they want the gear people see on your character to be the gear you are using.

@pcgneurotic i wouldn't call dressing room standard personalty It's an un-neccesary system. In fact if you want to wear a piece of clothing for the stats then you should assume the look it goes with as well.

It's your choice if you don't like the look just don't wear it.

The dressing room is for BEFORE you have acquired an item. When you're deciding which piece to buy from a vendor or which quest reward to choose. Often the differences are purely cosmetic, and not being able to preview that would be silly.

I think here the "Wall of Crazy" implies a "wall full of stickies" that is crazy to look at as opposed to ideas on said wall being crazy. This is not to suggest that some ideas that are stickied are crazy...though I suspect those will least likely get implemented. Where as others that are featured in other games will be...

...take a pill folks?

thought I was the only one who understood that... why is everyone so ready to go to war over every little thing that gets mentioned? Everyone wants to have a say about how a game is developed, and about what goes in, but no one is taking any of the risks except these devs (and any other devs involved in making a game) and yet the people they hope to make the games for act like untrained, rabid animals, ready to pounce at the mention of anything that they disagree with or simply don't understand...and having had very little, if any, contact with the actual game being developed. I thought it was bad in the official forums, but seems the behavior is spreading well beyond the confines of that madhouse. Oh well...
