Question: With the introduction of Cathar soon to be out the way will we be seeing more species and more interesting species at that?
Comment: Cathar come off as fairground face painted humans where the person asked to be a tiger grrrr. Now that is done can we hope to see more interesting and more alien species added to the game. This has been asked for pre-beta, beta, pre-launch, Launch and post launch. Now 10 months down the line we may see the first crack at this and it falls short of the sort of species or races offered by many other MMO's. Do the devs just not care or unable to add additional species?

Question: What is being added to the game that isn't designed for 8 man end game?
Comment: It seems of late the only content added to the game is for 8 man groups. Where is the open world content or for solo, 2+ or 4 man content? Other than gear grinding Ops it doesn't seem to add much to the wider game and hardly worth a 4 month draught to get one 8 man experience.

Question: Now we can match colours and hide head gear are there any plans for further customisation of Companions such as appearance or role.
Comment: It would be nice to be able to use which companion we want and not which one is the healer etc and likewise have more choice on looks than 5 or 6 premade choices where as little as colour and headband are changed.

Question: What is the design behind the Space combat and the new missions being introduced?
Comment: For people interested in space combat they will likely have fully outfitted ships and all the com gear. So will we see the next tier of gear or black hole/dread master gear from space combat or is the reward the challenge of flying harder space missions?

Question: There was talk of Legendary weapons being added to the game could you build on this?
Comment: While likely directed to force users who build their own sabers anyone can have a gun they name and love. It would be nice to build your own Lightsaber/weapon picking look and it being considered legendary and named for the character or legacy. Rather than using a lightsaber/weapon named for another long dead sith or jedi or random noun.

Question: There is mention of Social elements of the game in the coming patch, will this include chat bubbles or other elements to encourage socialising.
Comment: Being a themepark game there seems to be very very few socialising options for the game, few people hang out in cantinas or infact do much other than grind. Is there any plans to encourage socialising outside of group finder and running ops?

Question: We were once told that the design team do not feel multiple heroes beating on a single boss is very heroic. So far this seems the case in most ops and flash points, infact the design encourages avoiding 'trash mobs' and killing the bosses to get the gear. Is this by design or by mistake and how much has the design philiosophy changed since this early comment was made?
Comment: The statement seems to be fairly accurate, bigger and bigger mobs to beat on isn't very heroic. Infact it often the case that my uber sith or Jedi (the later who can kill the supreme power in the galaxy with nothing but a droid) needs 7 buddies to fight a rancor, beast or hutt in a driod. Yet this is how the game has gone, as heroic moments not so much the hutt is the heroic one. He faces off against a group all alone.
