It's not just this one thing, but the combination of things coming from every direction. All these mole hills added together do make a mountain. And you can roll your eyes if you want, but that's exactly what I did--not that it matters. I'm not giving them another 6 months worth of money right when the xpac hits, so I have a month left. Note that I said I would do one-time subs since I really don't know the full effects of all these changes, or how they will play out until we can actually see them. But it does feel like we are being bombarded by a ton of unnecessary changes that will alienate more people than it attracts.

I have seen some questions about the Global Legacy Unlocks tied to Companions (the Presence bonus and reduced CD on Heroic Moment). Those are remaining exactly the same, so the benefit is still there for maxing your companions Affection and completing their storylines.

Does this mean that Companion Gifts are being removed from the game?

Unless of course you only got them to 10K for the achivements, then... ok, sure.
Well maybe us that got them already including the legacy title might keep them.
Removing them may just affect future players to it or i hope lol.

This is the first time I have ever said something negative about the expansion, but to remove these achievements really sucks!

Heh. I can see the meeting:

BW: Hey EA, can we finally shut down the game and do something else now?
EA: Nope, now that there is a new movie coming out, we really should make use of the license.
BW: Sorry, we simply don't have enough manpower to do this.
EA: No prob, we'll cancel shadow realms, and reasign the staff.
BW: But... Um... Oh yeah.... We'd need a CGI trailer to get people interested again, too expensive, I fear.
EA: Good point, will 5 mio suffice or should we go for a 10 mio trailer?
BW:

And what will happen to the "For the Empire!" and "For the Republic" achievements? They had a legacy title (Imperial/Republic Squad Leader) attached to them, so will we lose the achievements and the old titles too?
^This.

This announcement makes me wonder if the plan is ill-conceived, or just ill-communicated. Because the Ill is strong with this expansion.

Are ship droids going to be able to equip weapons now? I'm kinda digging giving them a vibroblade and letting them tank.

Thanks for clearing that up
