It'd be great if they made space combat more relevant and exiting. I understand we won't see new Tie Figter or Wing Commander within TOR but new Roque Squadron, perhaps, even, please? ty? One of the nine thousand reasons I hate consoles is what they did to Joystics. Since pad is vastly superior way of controlling anytthing in literally all genres but (space)flight sims, very few buy, manufacture or want ye olde Joystick anymore. Which in turn means games planned with one in mind are highly uncommon. Not to mention mini games within an mmo


Personally idea of playing a railshooter arcade with mouse was about as exiting and rewarding as I thought it would be. ( spoiler, not very)

Just my 0.2 credits.

I would agree. I would go further to suggest that both PVE and PVP sections could be set up...and the PVP side should be a persistent battlefield IMO with a constant battle.

As I have mentioned before, the ability to use your starship and carry players to man your turrets and jump out to fight on foot on enemy capital ships, or man turrets and defend on foot on friendly capital ships. Also the ability to jump into and pilot fighters, fight other players or attack capital ships.

Basically everything that BF2 offered.

Not to cause a problem by mentioning another MMO here but Star Trek Online's space combat is the one thing that is significantly better then this game. Personally, I would like it if you could buy different ships and eventually work your way up to Star Destroyers in a 3 axis space combat. I also LOVE Republic hammerhead class cruisers too and I was so excited when they were shown on the artwork for this game... so why can we not fly them. Adding space combat PvP with your guild where you fight another guild using fighters, frigates, interceptors, battleships etc?

they should take BF2's space missions. you start on a republic/empire ship then you get in your ship(you had lots of choices in BF2 but it would be better for it to be your ship in this) or a friends ship. Then you have to take out all the turrets force fields, bridge command engines ect on the enemy destroyer.
You can do this inside and outside so you drop say 4 people off inside the ship then fly out and start killing everything.
First team to destroy the enemys ship wins

you could also do it pve aspect in the same way just with ai enemys instead of real

Yeah, that shouldn't have been beyond the reach of a SF "mini-game", and would have helped with replayability too.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

STO is "naval" style fighting, which fits with the brand. Star Wars has "fighters" and a much faster pace that Star Trek.
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

What keeps them from announcing it, or showing you a screen shot, is that what you 'want', has NEVER been suggested as being developed. Your hopes are built upon player speculation, not statements from Bioware.
