Same here. It felt awkward; didn't care for it.

I have to admit there are some interesting perspectives when seeing through that mode... But as it has already been pointed out, unfortunately a player can also miss a lot too.

Looked at it, definitely not for me. I have mine zoomed out to 70% most of the time. But my wife nearly (not quite) has it zoomed right in, When I taught her to pvp, I had to explain why she needed to zoom out to give better situational awareness.
I couldn’t imaging pvping or doing any difficult content in this game zoomed right in.

I did it the other day while running through Fleet with my main Inquisitor to get new crew skills.
But I was on a mount (some lizard thing) and I could see the head of the mount and sometimes the front legs... it was really cool

And by properly implemented i mean the way the camera comes to first person for instance in the Sith Inquisitor story, in Korriban when you are about to free Khem Val, at a certain point you shoot lightning to a door and it is then when you get to shoot lightning first person.

Unfortunately it cant be done. A missed opportunity.
yeah it would be super awesome to have 1st person or 3rd person, another game i played did that i forgot which one tho

Quite honestly the idea of 1st person mode doesn't really work with this type of game unless you are in one of the four classes that can manage it: IA, Smuggler ,Trooper and BH, as those are a natural fit with 1st person mode.

Due to the way the skill animations play on some of these force using classes you'd be more dizzy than ever, take for example the jedi knight using vigilance spec: the amount of twisting and turning and head movement, it would be completely unsuitable for 1st person mode as the camera goes with the head. and what happens if you get stunned on the floor and your target lock is lost, so you'd be on the floor and then having to find your target again.

This game also has an old glitch that was never fixed within regards to characters that sometimes get stuck in an animation until you move the character to get them unstuck from it, so that could also contribute the camera being positioned as if you were stuck looking up until you moved your character at times.

lastly the background world animation will need to be redone, right now the background animation looks like you are in one of those glass balls full of water that you shake about to get the snow effect. however the part that connects the whole upper skybox is a bit of a mess on some worlds.

How do you see aoe effects under your feet in first person view?
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force
