Remember, that J2LS was a full paid expansion (when it was first released) perhaps we could hope for something similar here...but alas, i think F2P will just kill it all off.
well it all depends on what their big space project is that they are working on. Obviously they are holding it back till after its going F2P. It could be something similar to JTLS

But my bet is that its more of a X-wing Vs Tie- Fighter instanced arena style space combat.

Every time I hear someone pine over JTL, I get nauseous. A space combat sim using a mouse instead of a flight stick? Blasphemous.

While I would love something like JTL or even better something like TIE-Fighter, what I miss most are the BIG planets, where you could just run around and explore. I also miss that the planets where more unversal for different leveled players. While there were high-level planets, there was always somethig to do on the lower level planets when you were maxxed out, like Krayt hunting...

You had to have a certain config on PvP on / a certain area during the final event allowed this. I had my speeder blown while going across a lake then an Adv. X-win finishing the job while I tried to swim onto land haha. IF you never played it you would think it's unbalanced, but there were only small instances that could be considred unbalanced. You could shoot down other player ships remember.

i would prefer no space combat now if it meant a JTLS style of space combat.

alas i don't think theme park mmos can handle that type of content.

Oh how I miss JTLS. It had so many things going for it. If you were a crafter it opened up a whole new area of crafting possibilities. If you were a PvE'er you could get in your ship and blast some npcs away. If you PvP'd there was some amazing dogfights to be had. If you liked RP it was full of attractions. If you were into your sandbox it was as almost as much fun doing up your ship as it was decorating your house.

JTLS is and will forever be my favourite expansion to any game.

A person could use a mouse if they chose, even though I thought it was clunky.

I used a joystick, personally. You had much finer control with a stick.

I suspect Bioware will come up with some retarded achievement that can only be unlocked through space combat, forcing the rest of us who hate it to go through it. Similar to them forcing players to play both factions to unlock HK51. Also an fyi to Bioware... forcing players to perform tasks that are not fun defeats the purpose of playing a video game. Challenge is one thing, but wasting players time is just tedious/boring, not challenging.

If they could release a real space expansion I would be swtor for next 5+ years with paid subscription, but what is most likely going to happen is I will be leaving for Planetside 2. I hope it doesn't come to that, but that is for Bioware/EA to decide.

In summary I want
1. Free Flight
2. Space PvP
3. Player owned space stations/Guild owned
4. Allow party members to control ship turrets

But it will never happen...


Also please do not take this as a rant against swtor, I really do like the game. My major complaint is in regards to space combat. And yes I am willing to pay for expansion(s) and subscription. I appreciate the fact that new content costs money to develop.
BW NEVER annonced "major" space combats.

They clearely stated space combat would be only a minor distraction. Idk where you think you are tsaking your facts, but I red everything from BW since the day the game was annonced and that includes everything they said about space combat.

What we have now, is what they told us we would have and in totally fine with that. BW gave us space combat because poeple asked for it and thats already something very nice of the.

They already stated that the new space mission is not part of the "Future of space" project, but guild ship are part of that though.
