Why would this happen? The achievements do not reward anything but Titles...

I loved this on the PTS but lots of it was broken with rewards not being given to alts via the legacy Achievement system !example a title it would mail you that title but it was a 1 time use and then it wouldn't allow me to select that title once again from within the Legacy Achievement panel system.

Also the titles were not listed under your legacy titles they were listed under the normal section of your player titles so I hope all this has been fixed because if not it's going to be a mess like it was on the PTS.

because that is 100% the case when achievements are implemented.

I don't remember who on the team said it, but a long time ago, this was billed as something really revolutionary that we hadn't seen before, and he was really excited about it.

Does that part come later?

Can you add a Freedom achievement
Sure, but I would make it two achievements.

"They'll Never Take Our Freedom..." - Deliver an inspirational speech to your group mates while in a Warzone.

"...But They May Take Our Lives" - Kill any player who is currently delivering an inspirational speech in a Warzone.

The titles have all been moved to the Legacy Title system. They will be granted like other Legacy Titles and will be available to all characters, except in the case of a few faction specific ones that will only be displayable on characters of the same faction---for instance, the Republic Ace title can only be used on your Republic characters.

I'd like to know what makes you 99% sure that the items we've seen added to CM where originally conceived as rewards for the achievement system.

Is it the multitude of rewards we received for leveling up our legacies, prior to the game going F2P?
The numerous rewards we received for reaching valor 100 or Social X, again prior to the game going F2P?
Or is it the tremendous amount of updates those few rewards that were already in the game from day 1 (titles, mounts and a few armor sets) had received until Fall 2012 when the game went F2P?

/end sarcasm

Honestly now, do you truly think that if it were not for the Cartel Market, reaching level 50 with a Sith Inquisitor would get you a Throne?

I'm not saying that there is no possibility that some of these items could've been drops in HM and NiM Operations if the game hadn't gone F2P and if the Cartel Market was not introduced, but to think that the items you mentioned would've been given away so easily is a very, very big stretch.

Henceforth, we will no longer call you "William Wallace". In our tribe, your name shall forever be "Dances with Womp Rats".

Does the achievement system replace the codex?
If not, is the codex getting any 'improvements'?

Or better yet, give that one to the killed individual giving the speech.
