Why are Cathar taking so long? Is this the rate at which new species are going to be released?

They figure its important that it comes with customization because some people want to change their current character species to cathar.

I am surprised no one has asked why they made the companion system so much like the trinity system, where if you are a tank or dps, you tend to need the healer companion or suffer from alot of downtime or death after every single fight.

I mean, the only healer companions that are not so freaking annoying that you think jumping off Canary Wharf or the Empire State building would be more enjoyable, i really wish they made the companions killable just to kill them to feel better.

So, from the healer companions the follwing classes are off-limits due to their annoying personalities:

Jedi Knight
Sith Warrior
Sith Inquisitor
Jedi Consular
Imperial Agent
Smuggler

The Trooper and Bounty Hunter are the only classes with cool healer companions that i love travelling with, i mean Doc was interesting to begin with, but his arrogance and pride just made him so freakingly off-putting, that i couldn't finish the jedi knight storyline.

I suggest they just change the companions so they are not any specific role and just have 3 stances that you can use, tank stance, healer stance and dps stance and each stance does different stuff, while it fights the enemy, granted the tank and dps stances are no different from what is available now, but what the healer stance can do is makes 5-10% of all damage done by the companion heals the player....That way you can use any companion and not feel like you made a huge mistake for not getting out the healer and never using the others again.

A couple things:
1. We need some minigame like activities to do while sitting around the fleet (because we all do it since there is nothing to do). This game is put into the KOTOR universe so why is there no swoopbike racing or pazaak? Some swoopbike races on the fleet against other players would be a AWESOME time killer.
2. Make more unmoddable gear so that it is not so easy for the community to get min maxed so fast. I swear it has gotten to the point where you can just buy everything you need instead of earning it.
3. Thank you for fixing scrappers now I can actually get into groups without them dissing my style.

I wouldn't bet any money on them not at least trying.

Funny, for a game that priced itself on story content, there's not much story content coming.

Where are these "teeming" servers he was talking about? I just left Ebon Hawk an hour ago and saw 20 people on Belsavis Republic side.

Like 3/4 of the game's population, they're playing on empire. Speaking of which, WHEN exactly does Bioware plan on addressing faction imbalance? or for that matter doing something for the game that won't end up on the cartel market? at the rate we're going, I'll have to buy future class story content off the Cartel market

What future class story content?

They kind of said, ah well, there might not be any, but if so, damn sure it will come with a price tag attached to it.

Probably a CM premium item, buy two for the price of one.
