What I expect, is them stopping doing the same mistakes again and again.

Like they know a vast majority of the players despite the 1.2 gear and still they display it in a promotion video.
Or the producer has been mocked about how non heroic are the bosses encounters and they display not 1 or two, but 4 in the same video.
Similarly they ask players what planets they want to see and the one chosen isn't even mentioned by one player in the topic. it's probably the least spoken about forums wide. It's not that much different for the Cathar either.
There's also the fact that players keeps hammering at world PvP and there's not one mention in the video.

I don't know, I'd just like them to get a damn clue!
What I mean is, as an entity that has been given creative license to add to Star Wars canon, since TOR is strictly EU, to expect TOR to conform only to Original Trilogy kind of content and appearances is silliness at best.

This is EU. Expect new things.

Although, I suppose Republic has been down a species compared to Empire since launch, and this could be evening the numbers.
As hard as Sith or Chiss for the republic but bending the lore even going totally against their initial core design does not seems to annoy them at all.

I wouldn't expect the yoda species to be playable...ever. George Lucas, himself, put the kibosh on that, along with wookiee jedi.

Gotcha.

Well new is fine as long as it suits the lore.

IMHO this, this or this and that does not looks iconic to me. And we have them in game...

I'm sorry didn't know you were George Lucas and can immediately decide if something is Star Warsy or not, but I should check my memory because 0:22 and 0:51 look like droids. That seems Star Warsy to me.

Judging from the title "Terror from Beyond" and the many areas of mid hyperspace we can assume this something from "Beyond" as in another galaxy that the game hints to so often. And the fact that this is a GALAXY where y'know an abundance of alien species can exist. TOR takes place fairly early in the SW universe where most of the galaxy is still undiscovered. So running into an unknown isn't uncommon.

Game keeps being many players kiting a single boss.
Pro tip: at 0:22 there's more than one boss during the fight.

I don't understand why people think because Bioware says once that fighting a single enemy isn't heroic that people expect 99% of boss fights to consist of more than one enemy.

Thats true, but people can change their opinions, and also he retired from SW I believe, and the yoda secret reveal in swtor would be epic. Yoda race, and open world pvp with player housing! Then everyone plays swtor - and is the #1 MMO.

Nice one, really looking forward to it!

My question is the following, this will be a new CONTENT or a new EXPANSION?

Since I think, people are not playing with the game because of the low server pops and stuff, why should they buy the new EXPANSION. SO i hope this will be a content. No offense, I love the game, but hard to play with an MMO without fellow players.

Best,
Customer
One does not simply playing on a low-end machine and having some good fps.

Too little, too late.

I want this game to succeed, really I do. I'd like my CE to be worth the money I paid for it but this game has just been a repeated swift kick in the ********s. Cathar? Really? Another reskinned human. Where are the Rodians, or ANY other ALIEN race.

To me it just looks like they desperately raided what should have been xpac content in order to stop the bleeding. Im not saying this game is failing. Im saying it is not performing up to its expectations.

Please BW prove me wrong.
