I don't know that I'd be riding their case about everything. A few ... bugs ... that sort of thing ... perhaps.

As for the matter of the New Class: There are always possibilities. Other wise why bother with any of it ??

Sort of like going bass fishing. There are ALWAYS that possibility of what can and will happen.

Just an idea, I absolutely hate everything Zakuul related but they might as well flesh it out before they leave it behind.

Honestly if you get the making of SWTOR books, there was supposed to be another class. But EA wanted to push the date so they had to scrap the story. That means that there is already a "new" class story that they could finish and implement. For those wondering the new class was supposed to be Gray Jedi. Which I think would have been a fun class, having a nice mixture of jedi and sith abilities

Gief java slicer/engi class nauw !!!! Voiceover would be simple to make from the java's side, very basic story have to be written, you could toss him in anywhere really at anytime in the story, and would be such a fun class/race to play !!!

I think I suggested a long time ago I would have love to seen a pet class added.

Droid Engineer

Animal Handler (Nerf herder!)

But I mean I'm sure there's plenty of others just... wow. Same classes for 7 years?
If you love SWG that much, and have such negative views of this game, why are you not playing SWG on an Emulator? Because it seems every post I see, it is quite Obvious that you are not happy with the game. Just a suggestion.

edit: With companions being a feature, a pet based class(droid engineer/animal handler) is obsolete.
Yeah I think that is what most don't understand. All the senior developers who built this game are gone. Now, more then likely, BW hires kids right out of school with no production experience and their head up their asses. And trying to work with anyone's previous code is difficult in the best of circumstances with the devs leaving a lot of in code notes.

This game is what it is now, it isn't really going to change. The BS of transferring the devs to their new SNAFU game Anthem caused a lot of people to leave. At this point, if you have a bunch of issues with the game, a break might be in order. Because it ain't changing.

Not really, if they just added new "advanced" classes they wouldn't have to write new stories.

New Class: Wookiee (No VA required)
New starter planet: Kashyyyk with walkways and ground level areas
New Dalies mission planet: Kaskyyyk
New Operation: Kashyyyk
New PVP arena: Kashyyyk
New Stronghold: Kashyyyk tree house and walkways and huts with view across the canopy and below
New Companion: Rakata Warrior guarding the Star Map who doesn't use a weapon
New Enemy: Czerka Slave traders..... Right? Join um (DS) fight um (LS)
Revenue to EAware: Through the tree lined canopy!

After the starter planet they go right to SOR etc.
They can go rogue and follow the Imperial line or stay true to the Republic as bowcaster warrior/healer or use the new Ryyk blade melee and tank/DPS spec. A FRIGGIN WOOKIEE TANK!

Again, no VA. Charles just types the dialog. EZPZ

B1 B2: Bowdar type body B3: Jakarro (w/o the button eyes ) B4... Fat wookiee?

Kashyyyk 7.0
(new level: 80 Coming: 2020)

This is a good point but I am sure many story-folk would take an addition like this as a subtraction to the kind of content they want to see more of, which of course is more written stories.

Personally I agree though, it would be neat if they added new "advanced" classes but with the struggling of balancing and keeping up with the present meta with just the classes they already have had for the last 7+ years, I'd not hold my breath waiting for additional classes to be added in the future.

As for the question, I bet there are many MMOs that never added more classes I just can't think of any that I played that did not, I have only played maybe 5 or so total MMOs over the years.

***I don't think Rift added any new classes off the top of my head... But I have not logged into Rift for years now.
