As far as story goes, just expand on things here or make KotOR 3

So the current run away leader by a huge margin is more class story, pretty much the one thing they have repeatedly said they will not do and tried to say that the faction based story we saw on Makeb will be the ay forward.

I know this poll is people on the forum, so its not a representative population but thats a very large win for class story. So EA/BW's stance on this if they do choose to comment has got to be explained more. I think lots of people would be happy to pay for more story, but perhaps the forums poulation is completely out of line with the in game population? So EA/BW shoudl maybe consider actually asking some of these questions of its current players in game.

I've enjoyed most aspects of this game but its a disapointment in every area, the story does stand out as the best part but its a linear meaningless rendition with no real chance to influence who you are, that said I enjoyed each class story Ive played.

I honestly feel like the game is very much in minimal maintance mode but with enough spin, fluff and baodging together of things to make it look better than it is. Its two years in and there shoudl be talk of a major expansion, not a 5 level hike with a planet worth 3 levels or a PvP space game (not bad, but I think when people say space they want PvE and PvP), a major expansion that takes everything forward.

I get tired of the bust-a-move FP/OPs for gear to do the next level of the same thing, every MMO has some form of gear treadmil and they are usualy a good thing, but not the only thing. The new FP coming which adpats and has more randomised elements may proce to be a real saviour, hoping so

If I were EA and Disney I would be working on how to rebuild this game and reuse its assets to portray the new Star Wars time line of the new movies next year, casting the current in game universe into the trash (where half the art work belongs) and hoping that as a combination of expansion and almost re-launch the game would get another chance and really grow rather than edge along the gradual decline against newer MMO properties. Not goong to happen I know.

This is pretty much how I'm feeling, and why I'm cautious to spend any money on the CM. I want to see if they have any plans for the game aside from cartel pack #20567.

Already in the game. Want to replay a story arc... roll another character in that class. But but..... people come on the forums all the time and say they are tired of class story (meaning.. done once.. discard).

My point..... yes... people would like more class story in most cases...but replay of class story is not that strong a driver in the player base from what I have observed in the forum. Sure.. some would do it and enjoy it.. but most of those frankly are using new character rolls to get their needs met IMO.

It might provide an interesting alternative to running dailies if the stories were to scale.
And it's at least popular enough to frequently show up on the suggestion forums.

I tend to agree with this post. I mean I have about 7 characters around lv 50 and two at lv 55. Only reason I've leveled them to 55 was to see each side of Makeb (1 pub and 1 imp). Even then it only took both toons to lv 53. Taking everything forward would allow more players to take part in a massive expansion whether it be PvP, OPs, new planets (this is crucial unless they decide to make one massive planet that is the equivalent to a continent in WoW), and 10 levels with separate class stories would allow players to enjoy the new content for a bit while they develop new content for various patches. Even their heroic instances in the minor expansion were just ones from launch scaled to 55.

It'd be interesting to see, but at least from what we've seen when they considered GSF a minor expansion, I doubt we will see anytime soon.

Based on what they've said and what they've been producing, no. If it's not cheap repeatable content, they aren't going to bother no matter how much their player base wants it. It has slightly better odds if it's group content, lucky raiders.

By now most of the long-time players have already been through many of the class stories with alts. If there was a way to replay class stories with characters that have already been through them, there would be renewed interest. Starting new characters over and over is tiring. People get attached to their characters and don't want to have to ditch them for new ones that they need to gear up. Not to mention if you're in a guild... "hey, this is my new character bla bla" all the time.

So yea, having a "reset" would at least add some longevity to the game for people that have already gone through the content or spacebarred through or had to rush through because of higher lvl friends.

Well, first off.. nobody has to "ditch" a character... so stop exaggerating.

A person either wants to re-experience a class story, or they don't. Replaying a capped level player through the class story is zero thrill and zero challenge. So all those folks you just rationalized for..... try again. It's nobodies fault but their own that they space_barred or rushed through content.

Tell you what though, I would like to re-experience the stories in HM. What I mean is, what if after you finish the class stories, it unlocks a hard mode option to run the instances again with mobs in HM. I would prefer 55 HM mode.

The drops could be updated accordingly as well as the comms. I'd love to see some of those last fights with the Emperor etc. etc. really become group fights almost like a Ops boss.

Just throwing that out there.
