The only thing we did do is check the lore for certain powers/ships/etc to be sure it was lore based.
Not everything in life is set in stone everyday is it ??

Life throws us a really hard curve ball from time to time. Yet there's the real RP.

I had planed on working another 2 years...

BUT that changed.

Funny thing. I've actually accomplished more in the last two years now that I ever expected !!

OK it wasn't at a place where I did an average of 55 + hours a week. BUT here at home !! OH my !! (just finished spray painting that new printer stand we built !!) which reminds me... Oh my stars what a mess to clean up. Black lacquer overspray . UGH !!

Clean up on isle 10 please !!!

I'd like to see the story turn away from superweapons, as much as factions would seek these out if they did exist in real life to gain the upper hand in a war, especially one that's lasted so long. I want to see a conventional threat, such as a military genius or a conventional weapon,
Spoiler
maybe some kind of political intrigue plot, but I don't know how they would pack this with action. It sounds very specific to the agent and smuggler, and we know Bioware favors the Knight as the star. It's definitely not easy to keep things fresh.

Oooh, I'd like this... I'd like this a lot. I wouldn't want it to be a Chiss though, as that would be a little too much rehearsing Heir to the Empire.

The most obvious candidate would be Darth Jadus. His appearance could serve the plotline for both Force Users and Non-Force Users. Besides, his story was never finished, but he seemed like the type of genius that could really mess things up for the galaxy.

If they want to introduce someone new though, they could use the Sith Empire's eugenics program trope. Perhaps a genetically modified Imperial Admiral has gone rogue and now threatens both the Republic and the current Empire as he seeks to establish an Imperial society wherein non-Force Users rule instead of the Sith. But which still hates the Republic for the mass genocide they committed at the end of the Great Hyperspace War.

I agree.. enough of the super rally big bad thingy that will wipe out everything in a single shot !!

I'm not sure what would be the best approach but yeah .. sometimes the best stories are in the trenches (so to speak)

And yes .. the knight is the star. BUT what would happen if we saw a return of the individuality of the other aspects: the trooper / the smuggler. AND (just maybe add a new one)

And old fashion bug squashing is always a good thing !

I love Jadus, and would want nothing more than to see him come back. But if I remember correctly on Imp Side Onslaught didn't we get a confirmation that he was among the dead? Correct me if I'm wrong please. And even if that is the case it doesn't mean it's true. Look at Malgus, HK-55, Vitiate.... Super wish it was Jadus that returned and not Malgus (he feels like a cheap knock off of Bane to me. Don't know why). If Jadus does come back, they need to do it in a meaningful way and not the Malorra way

Veterans like me have nothing to do, I have not been doing operations regularly for years, because they have become boring after 150 x times done it, and I finished the rest of the additions before 4.0. Maybe bioware is going to wait farther years until the game loses some players again and only then add something new? Clever.

^Agree: can tell this game is doing very well bc a lot~ of noobage on the pug ops & FPs (they really know how to ruin a SM or Vet/ MM FP (tired of carrying them)). Longer FPs are more agonizing. Like Kai Zykken, who says things willl be here in a few hours... 3 days later, still not there: expect years, instead of days, with BioWare.

I ran VM Hammer Station with a newb, allegedly. He was a tank. He said he was new when I asked if anyone was. When we finish, he tells me he came from WoW. So why did I spend all that time explaining tanking basics when this isn't your first MMO? Ugh. The whole run, he played along as if he didn't know, asking for feedback on his performance.

Then another run, I got VM Directive 7 with 3 DPS. None of them knew target priority, when I explained why there is a priority, one of them said nobody ever told them this before. They thought their job was just to hit the strongest enemy. I don't know how killing the weakest enemies first isn't common sense.

I would hope newbs would learn their roles and classes properly, but Bioware broke that with the Great Dumbing Down of 4.0.

I would certainly be in favor of a return of the individual class stories. I just don't see how it's possible with the lack of resources the team has, but bug squashing, as far as I'm concerned, they've got no excuse...none.

Oh certainly not a Chiss, please no! That's too damn obvious.

Even though the third faction has already been done, this would be an interesting spin on it: a splinter group that thinks the galaxy would be better without Force users (It's a valid argument.) and finally acts on it and is surprisingly effective at taking them out. There are plenty of people on both sides that distrust Force users, though less commonly shown Pubside, probably because of the Jedi's advisory philosophy regarding the Republic.

Oh, it could be an alliance between a Pub and an Imp. However, no Imp/Pub alliance. That's already been done. Maybe only at the last minute. This would be more difficult to write though, as common sense and history show when a third faction interrupts a war, the other two create a temporary alliance to vanquish the larger threat. Although, with someone on each side, they could have plausible deniability that Jedi and Sith losses in the proceeding battles were collateral damage,
Spoiler
It could be a mystery. No superweapon though that explicitly targets Force users.

Another thing they could do is a prequel or interquel to KotFE/KotET.
Spoiler
What were the other classes up to at this time? If they wanted to bring back class stories, this would be the best way to reintroduce them. However, they would be openly admitting they only had one class in mind with the Outlander story, and in their mind probably, they already expressed a mea culpa for that in a conversation overheard when you arrive on Ossus. Also, a portion of the playerbase may be displeased with the Eternal Empire arc being brought back.

Since some of the focus has been turned to the "dark side" hmmm let me see ..

What about the Republic.

IMO I'd like to see a character that (even though might be under some undeserved railing and fire) really is trying to do the right thing.

** Whatever is controversial would not be the truth
** A good solid character
** Not corrupt (how many have we seen that seems to be the first order of business)
** Just for fun looking for the alliance to be closer friends ??? maybe ? (provided they are light side). IF the alliance is turning dark side the new Republic leader wants to cut ties.

---------------------

Salvage from the Alliance
** I'm not too sure how many might agree but It's crossed my mind (more than once) that some of that fleet from IOKATH should be salvageable. Maybe even a handful of parts from the Gravestone.
** I would put the alliance top scientists and engineers on top of salvage operations AND would drag as many of the parts as possible into a holding zone to prevent the Sith or other enemy (pirates ) from stealing and gaining tech from the left overs.
A FEW possibilities from this:
1. Sith or Jedi : If they leave the alliance the Sith would try to destroy anything left behind .. or do as much damage to the reclamation as possible then steal away with a handful of support ships to act as his own personal body guards (fleet). The Jedi would simply keep a very good ship for his personal use. The Jedi would leave the Alliance in the safekeeping of the next person in charge.
2. Empire trooper: about the same as the Sith
3. Republic Trooper: about the same as the Jedi
4. Smuggler LOL You got to love this guy !! IF he gets another ship out of this It's full of surprises !! All sorts of crazy tricks !! He's a smuggler .. just the way he thinks. Yes the Alliance is left in good hands ( and what can be salvaged from the Eternal Fleet ) but has no qualms about keeping the good stuff (just in case) .

I would have a field day with some of the salvage stuff. And don't try telling this old man there "aint no such thing" Not going to hear it!

.
i would love to see something like this happening, but with our characters.... my agent and my snuggler for example... they are actually sisters

or my warrior and my knight

etc... can make it a pairing of the mirror classes all across the board. and if someone doesnt have a pairing as a character, introduce some generic stand in.

then again i would love to be able to use my other chars as sort of companions in some way....
