Two chicks at the same time...
Unsubscribed due to no new Operations.
I am happy that there will be a renewed focus on story, I love story, its why I picked this MMO. But I picked an MMO, not an episodic single player RPG that I have to pay a subscription to receive the episodes.

Face the fact: If you don't like to group with other players... and be it just because they make your evening a bit more stressful, you WON'T do it for content. It'll mostly be just content that's not getting experienced.

So. Unless it somewhat hurts anyone if people actually get to see the stuff be it with players or companions, BY ALL MEANS let them!

I kindof endorse the idea of having more than just one member of my crew with me. It'd fit my character. Others wish the content would rather be completely soloable... because it matches THEIR character.

Who would I be to tell them their POV is wrong? Who are they to say the same about mine?

Tollerance goes a long way.

another thing is companions' AIs are dumb. there is group content requires human thinking. like the blood and sand heroic. we had 2 players and 2 companions. we got wiped.

play a sith warrior has an MassEffect type moment. Jedi Knight I think might also been awhile with that one.

send them on crafting missions and then go take a pic of them gathered around the workstation on your ship!

But yes multiple companions would be kinda cool at times

but would be way to powerful for other stuff breaking any balance there might barely be already

In GAMING, as in LIFE,

No game restriction is so dire that $15.00/month will not eliminate it

Would make the game even easier than it allready is. Even for 4 man heroics i dont realy like the idea.

An emote or a toy on the other hand. ex a discoball like the social one that also would summon all your companions to dance with you. You would still only control 1 companion and even if you got attacked the dancing companions would ignore the fight and keep dancing or alternatively just despawn.

Actually, I think this was a solo game at launch and it was designed that way. I think it just thought it was an MMO at launch....but it really wasnt in more ways than it was.

Now it is finally becoming an MMO.

I don't know myself (since I don't have either companion yet), but it seems that Treek and HK have no impact on the story in any way, so u could ask that they be usable at the same time as ur 'main' companion. U would still have 2 unlock them 1st, but after that u could have them with u at the same time as 1 of ur other companions. Though like I said in my previous post, I don't think it will happen. But u don't know until u ask right?
