Jorgen was not changed with the release of Cathar. He was not changed until now.

Are you getting your hopes up that the next playable race will be Skadge's (whatever that is)?

No, I don't care to play a Houk. I was just pointing out that the person was talking about companions that had skin and were not playable, and included Jorgen in that list, even though Jorgen's race, Cathar, is now playable. Getting the hopes up was more for new races incoming....so long as they don't pull the Cathar crap and make it so you have to buy it on CM...subs should get it for free.

Well that last bit is total pie-in-the-sky. We all know that if there is another playable race, it will be a CM item.

I know....still think they should go with what they said when they released the F2P model...that subs would get all future playable content for free, including races.

As of right now I really have nothing else to play, so SWTOR get my money...but I'm not sure how long that will last. I've been a sub since release and swore I wouldn't unsub until the game went down. But at the time I didn't take into account all the things they could do to push their players away.

Races aren't playable content. They're a cosmetic customization option, just as much as piece of adaptive gear is. And Bioware was pretty clear with their initial promise that the Cartel Market would be only cosmetic fluff.

The more recent quote everyone talks about did not state that. It stated "All content and future updates," not "Future content and future updates."

Hello folks,

We've been pretty quiet about this since Game Update 2.2.2 went live, and the reason is because I was tracking down exactly what we did and why the change for Ashara got missed!

Essentially, we got the note about Jorgan's fur, but the full extent of the change/fix was not properly captured. However, the Patch Notes have been updated now to correctly reflect that he, Ashara, and over a dozen other companions will now appear properly. The note is:
  • The following Companion Characters will now have their skin/fur appear consistent when not wearing armor:
    • Akaavi Spar
    • Aric Jorgan
    • Ashara Zavros
    • Gault
    • Guss Tuno
    • Kaliyo
    • Lord Scourge
    • Sergeant Rusk
    • Skadge
    • Tanno Vik
    • Vette
    • Xalek
    • Yuun
    • Zenith

This update has been in the works for quite some time, and it was prompted by player feedback. At the time, it was mostly about Ashara, so it's not shocking that you guys noticed the change with her. (Why aren't you putting Vik into the skimpy stuff, eh?!)

Thanks very much for the original feedback and for pointing out the error in the patch notes!

I tried to make Guss wear the dancers outfit, but he refused.
I'll tell you what, then. Why don't you call me some time when you have no class?
