I'm glad they are trying to strengthen the parts of the game that seperate them from the competitioners instead of adding new raids etc. which tiny part of the playerbase see.

Games like Rogue Squadron are also very popular so I dont see why you think people will not be interested. Especially Star Wars fans.

God I hope this is true.
The point is: you have limited resources. You can create 10 new flashpoints or 3D space combat. Not both.

Excellent stuff.

One of my favourite games ever was elite closely followed by X-WIng.

They so should implement this.

Some people might find it too difficult some poster said on the front page.. sucks to be them TBH.

I am more than happy to continue my subscription if it means I can play something like X-Wing again

That's the thing.

Star Wars has so much, trying to out WoW WoW is pointless, they should play to the strenghts of the IP!
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

Yeah, I spent most of my swg time in space. The fact that JTL came as an expansion, and proved to be so popular is one of the reasons full space should have been in tor at launch. They should have had that foresight.
PROPER SPACE COMBAT PLEASE

Using your spaceship to explore space opens up a whole new world within Star Wars.
I totally agree with you, there's so much they could do with this.

In my opinion Bioware put in the space combat they have now just for something to do until they completed the real deal that they always intended for and if that is the reason then I back them up 100%.

Totally agree. Rogue Squadron 2 on the GC was probably my favorite Starwars game (after the dancing Han-Solo on kinect, that is true genius). This is an MMO, 3D space combat will eventually lead to space exploration, guild ships and integration between ground and space. Or at least that's the way i see it. Although i do agree with the resource issue. EVE do space combat best as that's their specialty, if SWtoR hope to do it they will have to put in a lot of time and money to get it polished to similar standards...If your going to do something, make sure you do it right
3D PEW PEW!

Any new feature requires resources. Just because a new feature requires resources does not mean it should not be considered.

2.) 3D space combat is a complete different game. I don't see the benefit for TOR
Different then what? The current space combat is "a complete different game". In fact, I would go so far as to say that other then borrowing from the art style the current SPACE game has nothing to do with the current GROUND game. Other then Fleet Commendations, some xp and credits there is little reason to do the current space combat game. There is no multiplayer element to it. It might as well be a single player game played off-line.

3.) Only a small number of players will be interested in such a feature. 3D space combat is much too difficult for most of the players.
That remains to be seen. The discussion over the space combat portion of the game and the pushing of said "3D space combat" on the beta forums was one of if not the hottest topics. There seems to be a huge interest in 3D space combat DONE RIGHT. Also, there is only a small number of players CURRENTLY interested in the space combat in game at present.

I should point out that a change in the current space combat game is ONLY SPECULATION. What statements have been made have not spelled out a clear path either way. Don't get overly excited whether you want this feature or not.


Give me an MMO that I can visit and have fun! Where what I pay for is not going to those that play for free.

The sad thing:

They were excited about space combat on rails - it failed.

They were excited about Ilum - it failed.

What can we expect?

Anyway, if they do space the right way* I'll resubscribe in an instant .

*i.e. the right way is the Jump to Lightspeed way with a huge chunk of Battlefront 2
