Great idea! Turn cantinas into casinos! And give (low yield) social points for gambling with other players.
TORtanic indeed. It's just like that movie that was hugely successful and made boatloads of money.
This is an MMO. Whether you play with or see the other players is irrelevant to that fact.

I had a recommendation for the forums. What if they put in a "rating" system to rate other player's posts. With a provision like if you give 5 bad ratings in a row you cant give anymore for an hour it might keep the trolls from totally abusing it. My reasoning so many threads are just trash and so many posters are trolls that I swear signed up for the game just to whine on the forums. I'd love to be able to have a "rating" next to a thread and be like okay this thread is 1 star, not worth my time.

Just a thought.

(PS) you would definitely get a 5 star!
They do ;-)

It was in the additional options section of the screen where you replied to the thread. I just gave it 5 stars for instance :-)
This thread broke my e-peen.
I fixed it with duct tape.
Like SWToR, has a dark side, a light side.
Like the OP, it is also coated in an an unidentified sticky substance......

Indeed. Some NPCs to play against for those of us who are shy, and the possibility to play Sabacc against other players for those who want - granted, this may well run into legal problems since it would become "real" gambling in the minds of a lot of people, but it would nonetheless be cool.

great post, only one thing missing:

Social gear for non inquisitor/consulars.

I see assassin tanks working it in their metal bikinis and would love to tank in the collectors edition outfit, but as a jugg, it just ain't workin!

Nice constructive post. Kudos!

Agree with this point here. Threat seems wonky. I would like to be able to test threat in game but the lack of available data makes testing impossible.

An excellent summary of some well thought out improvements to the game. Two thumbs up.

Can we get some quests, or maybe earn social XP, to push people into the cantinas to dance. Maybe a personal profession system, where we choose dancing or music or something similar that we can level in the cantinas. It would help get that second "m" in the "mmo". Just a thought.

This would be awesome. One of the things I enjoyed most about SWG.

These kinds of threads ARE constructive, and you know they will get read by developers. I'm pretty sure everyone of these things will be addressed in time. Meanwhile, we play, we enjoy and then we relish what new comes in patches.

A refreshingly constructive and articulate list.

Your SI comment makes me want to roll one. Thus far (lvl 45) I have high expectations for the JK wrap up!
