Hello all as you may know, 1.4 was a small update compared to most yet bioware decided not to put all of those great things they said they would like the new techniques and level cap.but why didnt they put cathar in yet?that is my question to the swtor community.and i doubt that there will be another huge update to implement all the things they say they will

I believe all those things were listed as "coming soon" rahter than given a specific time frame. And I'd much rather Bioware take their time and put more effort into the Cathar's looks than they did with many of the other races.

100% agree. The cathar npcs in game look like crap, they look like humans with a summer camp face paint job to look like a cat.

They were never announced to come in the next patch. I figure we get them when we get the new level cap and new planet.

1.4 included everything earmarked for 1.4 not everything earmarked for the rest of the year. In November, we'll see Free to Play, probably along with some free-to-subscribers premiums like HK-51 and Ancient Hypergates which free players can unlock through the cash shop. Makeb, new story and possibly a new flashpoint are likely out in December. BioWare has indicated that Cathar are the next available race, but at this point aren't promising to have them ready this year. 1.4 was mostly for Terror From Beyond, plus some little things they has ready to implement.

I love baseless estimations that are likely way off. Good job.

Anyway, at least cathar have ALWAYS been in the top ranks of every single poll about species put out since beta. And, according to Georg Zoeller, is a decent representation of the whole. So, I'll go by that rather that some random anonymous poster.

What I dislike about the whole Cathar deal now is that they made that whole announcement with a BIG splash parading it alongside some hypothetical new content, something that they played to the hilt before 1.4 leading us all to believe they were coming.

Then they dropped the ball and Cathar were missing... then nobody say a thing

Now 1.5 is on PTS and still no traces of Cathar...I mean that... Just keep in mind they announced it Wayyyy back at E3
Grrr I deleted my last 4 lines because i would have surely gotten hit by infraction

Only gonna say 1 thing, SERIOUSLY DISAPPOINTED
another ball dropped

Well, what they were announcing when they spoke about Cathar initially wasn't the next patch, it was a selection of what is in store for this year. Most recently (I think it was in the LiveStream Q&A, but I'd have to check dulfy.net to be sure) they said that HK-51 would definitely be this year but that Cathar may not be ready.

That LiveStream was specifically focussed on 1.4 and Free to Play which we now know will be introduced with 1.5. If they deign to give us another Q&A, that will presumably touch on what is upcoming in the content patches to follow next. I expect we'll hear something more about Cathar then.

Okay - looking at the LiveStream Q&A transcript on dulfy.net, I found the comment I was recollecting:

A: Cathar and HK-51 are both in the works. HK-51 I am confident that you will see before the end of the year. Cathar have no definite timeframe at this point but we intend to introduce them as the first species in SWTOR.
That is still more recent than anything we have heard about some content, announced earlier and not updated in a much longer timeframe, so count your blessings.

I just wish they'd adopt an engine like STO has where you can CREATE your own species. Granted i think you should have to play a stock species to level 50 first to get this option, but let us run wild.

He'll i'd kill to have a female zeltron imperial agent. An agent who can use pheremones to influence targets? Can we say total fun?

Or having a Falleen Jedi knight?

Come on Devs, open the gates and let us have fun!
