Can we have an actually purpose for strongholds

I want a big stronghold that I can decorate with gates and such to host Speeder races.

I also wish we had an ABC music system (like LOTRO) so we could play player-created music in our own cantinas (and other cantinas around the game).

I wish there was a public access storage system, so that I could leave goodies and holiday gifts for visitors.

I'm also hoping they'll come out with working mini-game table decorations, both single and multi-player. I'd love to make a dejarik cantina.

Perhaps some sort of event could be hosted by a SH owner that will gain them prestige. If Pazaak existed I'd suggest a Pazaak tournament where the owner stakes the prize money. Perhaps a PvP arena. I'm sure there are lots of ideas out there
1. Not everyone ignores the stronghold. Some of us actually enjoy the strongholds.

2. Maybe reading some of the gold posts would be a good idea, since they mentioned that Rishi could be used to pvp if you wish to have it in your stronghold. I know we will set up the guild one as pvp.

1. One-stop shopping right inside the first 10 feet of the zone-in to my stronghold with all of its accoutrement in one place - mod station, appearance station, vendor, guild bank, legacy bank, cargo hold, mailbox, the crafting droids, the crafting Jawas, and the GTN. Try being able to get to all those things within a few steps of each other in one place anywhere else, including fleet, which has everything spread out.
That is a purpose.
Strongholds have purpose.
All of the entry rooms in all of my strongholds are set up like this. It would be #1 on my list of reasons as well.

^^ Same here.. though I only have 4 strongholds set up this way (the rest are less efficient for this). Nar Shadda remains my favorite for this purpose given how the entry room is set-up, and since I originally set up my first GTN character on Nar way back before we had GTNs that served both Imp and Pub (with Nar being the exception and was always open for both).

I really hope they set up Rishi such that you can put all the one-stop-and-hop features right at the entry point. That said.. is still very much want a decoration (or a player option) to put the entry point of a Stronghold where I want it instead of where the studio decides.

One-Stop-and-hop via Strongholds was one of the biggest QoL features added to the game.

Wait, you mean to tell me that the strongholds have no purpose? Then why are they even in this game?! Waste of resources if you... oh wait... they just don't meet YOUR needs/wants for them. Never mind. Gotta watch how you word things, might cause a panic!

Since it's been stated before about their plans for strongholds I won't bring that up but I can guarantee you that they certainly have a purpose and a LOT of people utilize them for their purpose. Between the conquest buff, creativity release, community center, or just a main hub for an individual where they can have most of the stuff they need in one place, I'd say they are fitting the majority of needs as they are and the devs are working to add to it in the near future.

Personally I spend pretty much all of my time in game in my SH when I'm not doing quests, GSF, or helping people. So they serve their purpose just fine for me.

Now if only there was a better way to get Cartel Certificates than to spend hours and millions of credits at a Contraband Slot Machine, so that I could buy a couple of medical droids to add to my new stronghold...

Or you can do what I did and create a guild and sit back and have your members bribe you with cartel certificate stuff.
