Space Missions: Crap or Cool?

I would LOVE to enjoy the space combat missions, however, there is no option to INVERT the Y AXIS. I cant play without it inverted. Additionally, planes IRL are "inverted" forward is down, back is up.

Initially, I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy them. There is something satisfying about blowing the components off of capital ships. Unfortunately, as each mission is exactly the same every time, they move toward repetitive and boring over time. Additionally, it is disappointing when a newly unlocked mission is simply a slightly harder version of a previous mission.

The xp and credits from the dailies aren't bad, but I find my interest in space missions fading.

Like many, I thought I'd dislike it because it's simplistic, but having tried it I've found it fun. Sure, it's simple. But the visuals are nice, and it keeps you busy throughout. Naturally, I dream of a union of this game with Xwing-TIE, the wonderful game that Lucasarts seems to have shunned, but for now I'll make do with this.

Funny, I normally go with inverted flying too, but since it's just mouse controlled, I didn't have any issue with it.

I find the missions a fun diversion. However I am at the point where I found the exact same quest but now the ships have shields so it's harder. So... yea. Additionally the space missions would have been a great place to kill time while you are in a LFG tool, except there is none :P

I love them, though I have issue doing them on the Republic side because I keep trying to shoot Republic ships.

I thought they were cool when I got my ship - now I'm almost 30 and I've done the same 5 missions over and over and over and over......get it?

I do like it though, it's a cool thing for an MMO to have. I like upgrading my Ship, I wish they had leaderboards or something - it would add something to each server if you had leaderboards, it would break up the snooze from just doing them because you need the daily reward you know?

Also ship mods would be cool, add a few color options, wing, fin, body customization so that not every ship is the same.

I'm 50 on my main and find myself still doing dailies on my main *and* on alt too. Don't know really why, they are quite simple and all but for some reason I find them fun and suitable short.

They do need some fleshing out eventually since they don't really offer long term appeal I think. But for now I still seem to enjoy doing them. The short duration I think is the key, I can fit one or two missions between some rl related stuff.

You know what? That's great idea, scoreboard for each server and each mission or something like that would be really nice addition.

I was hoping for the same as SWG so I was already disappointed before I tried them.

I would have to say it's a good break from the ground. For those ground pounders out there that are getting burnt out, do the daily missions. Seriously... It's something totally different.


My only gripe is loot. There doesn't seem to be the chance of ANY random loot for completing the missions. The comms flux based on whether you complete the bonuses. I don't understand why they couldn't add a percentage for a chance of some type of loot to drop. It adds replayability. Hell....people run heroics for that small chance over and over and over. Tss tss Bioware....
