Nice! Another platinum rarity suggestion thread, keep giving them more ways to shave off more of the population.

This way however you can limit the amount of players having the title so that it would still feel unique a special.

Or have it come from a very hard achievement that only a handful of players can get their hands on it like with the Wings of the Architect. Who knows maybe even they could pull out Valkorion's fight at the end of KotET and also make it an operation so that you can earn an Emperor/Empress title if you defeat Nightmare mode.
Have fun showing off the title to a fleet of 1 to less than 5 server population.

I doubt something like this would shave off more population. Do you want the game to keep producing content and new things? Well, in case you didn't know, they need money for that to be able to invest in resources and hire personnel. Whether we like it or not it's all part of a giant company who wants to make profit, so in order to stay afloat and keep running they need to have this game be profitable in the eyes of EA in order to avoid getting shut down.

So it's only logical platinum items are being made and released as they do move people to buy those packs with the hope they'll get the item. I know it's not fair towards the players, I know RNG and gambling suck, but do you have the millions of funds they need and will to donate to keep SWTOR and Bioware afloat? No? Then they have to resort to this to be able to keep running the game.
ATTENTION: Include the Twi'lek into the 3 new eye colours from Appearance Options: Expanded Selections in the next patch. It was a huge mistake to not do this from the start as they are being grossly neglected as a playable species.
Oh yeah, and this is my referral link!

Whether you see it or not, this game has only until next year until it's shutdown from the way things are going. Adding two platinum items won't change anything to the game except for players having to spend their hard earned millions of credits on a title eventually they'll get bored of using. I just don't see it being worth platinum , gold for sure but like I mentioned in my previous posting, I would rather earn it instead of buying it.
For New Fresh characters, be sure to follow the link below for some awesome goodies!

So my proposition would be to make the title a platinum item that drops from a few upcoming Cartel Packs as to still give the title to players but keep it rare and unique. I'd suggest the title would look something like this:

Emperor [Character Name] - for male characters
Empress [Character Name] - for female characters

Naturally it doesn't have to be exactly like that, I could also imagine for other variations to be likeable and possible to signify that our characters can become Emperor/Empress at the end of KotET:

[Character Name], Emperor of Zakuul
[Character Name], Empress of Zakuul

[Character Name], The Eternal Emperor
[Character Name], The Eternal Empress

The Eternal Emperor [Character Name]
The Eternal Empress [Character Name]

Nonetheless, I believe the most simple and enjoyable version would be the first one I have proposed, namely Emperor [Character Name]/Empress [Character Name]. In design it will look nice and it's simple, short, as if it becomes too long it can become a bit too pretentious.
I dont say this often, but this is a good idea. I agree with ; this sounds really good.

You can already get this title unconventionally at least. I've had it since they changed the character to being allowed two names and having to rename my sin who was simply Mara. Ever since they made the change she has been Empress Mara and it drives people nuts sending me whispers how I got that title.

For some reason Empress works fine but you can't use Queen in a name. As my poor smuggler Emeraldas found out. Unless you're willing to garble it with special characters. Which I was unwilling to do would have ruined all the fun.

Lord is a gender neutral title in Star Wars. Lady is an entirely different title altogether. And frankly, gendered titles are a little ridiculous anyway, in my opinion- not everything needs an "ess" tacked onto it, especially when one's gender is irrelevant for their occupation.. Like "Agentess" or "Mistress Jedi"- it's just fairly unnecessary.

You do not assume the title of Eternal Emperor/Empress - listen to what the DS option actually says.

I know you don't assume the title of Eternal Emperor/Empress, but since you named your Alliance "The Eternal Alliance" *shivers severely at the name* then as a cosmetic variations I don't think Eternal Emperor/Empress would be too much of a stretch :P
