Especially seeing as you can level from 1 to 10 in about 15 minutes these days..... maybe closer to 30 for a brand new player with no basic understanding of game play and mechanics. If you choose the wrong class AC at level one you will likely know it before you head off to fleet, and simply roll it's alternate AC and move on.
When you find yourself surrounded by hostile Clowns... always go for the "Juggler" first.

I think it makes it much less meaningful. When you start with it, it's not something you achieve; also, there's no upgrade to how your character plays or feeling of rising in power, again because you have it right off.

I still remember how awesome it felt for my trooper finally got an assault cannon...that experience is no longer there if you just have it right away.

Then again, that was back at launch when getting to level 10 took longer than five minutes, so these days it might not make much difference...

We've been able to change species for years at the appearance station. I believe it cost 600cc. Why people have been asking for something that's already been in game all this time is beyond me.

The OP of this thread is from 2013. Someone did a severe Necro, that's why the earlier posts are talking about it as if it's not there. It wasn't then.

Actually thank you for this necro. Since the game started, I have totally been against being able to change your Advanced Class. With 5.0 I have changed my mind. The new system is extreeeeemly alt unfriendly. I would much rather grind say my commando to 300 and after I get gear for them, gear them out again as a vanguard instead of starting a vanguard at lvl 1 and also doing that grind to 300 again. I still agree with all the other arguments against it and otherwise think being able to change your AC is a terrible idea. However, because of the grind imposed on us with 5.0, I am willing to overlook all that and actually want to be able to change AC now at will.
Dear BW,

Too many players ran by the trainers and complained the game was too hard as a result.

Blame the people who don't follow instructions for everyone having to pick an AC.
The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins.

its the exact opposite for me. but to each their own. in any case - this thread can be safely locked. becasue given that their response was to make selecting advanced class mandatory on character creation? chances of them allowing AC change are, I would say, officially zero.

Maybe we should start a new thread. Make it about how we heard a rumor that there would be an AC change and we as the players stand united in an effort to block something like that from ever happening. Then odds are BW would put it in since its something no one actually wants.

Even if I have to pay for it!

Pretty sure if they did this now, it would be a token you buy in the CM. You activate the token and it RNG assigns you an Advanced Class. Think about how exciting that would be! You might even end up with the same Advanced Class you were trying to change out of! Exciting!
Let this sink in, this game is Free to Play, boasts one of the most popular IPs on the planet and yet 76.47% of the servers are empty.
