They are no Jedi robes they look so old-comic-style fitting for Heman or something.


At that state of information i'd prefer you, Bioware, to completely take out the hoods of any robe until you complete the luxury present of a toggle for the community (until then I don't care for the "hoods down thing" in the neck). As its an awful thing that Knights and others are damned to be bald. And for Luxury you might include one robe with a hood or something...

...however take them hair-thieves off my chest piece, please ...just my 2 cents
Agreed that I'm not a huge fan of the caped ones either, although I'm making due for now so I don't have to completely abandon my Knight. That said, I'm only playing half-heartedly at this point, finished Taris and at level 25 I don't even want to move onto Nar Shadda until I can get a proper robe with the hood down.

Absolutely pathetic. Putting in an option should not take too long. Then again, they are using the garbage HeroEngine, so maybe it is.

Here's the thing that baffles me.

Even if it IS hard, how on earth do you justify going life without having it coded in??

Or at the very least, NOT make every single robe set be hooded???
I cannot for the life of me believe that someone thought that it was fine and dandy that EVERYONE be hooded.

Right!! If the toggle was the coding equivalent of the Manhattan Project and they knew it, wouldn't they have been like, "fine, we'll just go half and half." Why would they feel the good bet was to go, "Everyone everywhere will prefer hood up even though we showed them 90 percent hood down images for three years and those videos are the reason they are playing the game in the first place! "

I've been seriously considering parking my Guardian and rolling a Trooper. But no matter how much I try, I can't stop wanting to play what I had been picturing for close to 3 years now. The second I saw Ven Zallow in Decieved I knew what I wanted. It seemed so simple... no more alt making and class confusion, nothing balance wise would ever set me off. Now I'm level 32 with 48+ hours invested and I find out I may not see my face until 50 and beyond... and 75% of all armor they used to win me over was removed right before release?

In beta at level 15, I had already used two hood-down robes. One from Tython commendations (now a tunic) and one from Trouble in Deed on Coruscant (now a hooded cape, like a 100 others)

Why fix something that isn't broken? It makes absolutely no sense.

Wow. I had no idea that hooded robes were in in beta. I only did the three weekend tests and never saw them. I was just as vocal (or obnoxious, depending on your point of view) in beta on this issue and heard nothing, but I didn't know they were ever in the game.

They were in before? And then yanked? Do you think this was part of the switch over from the old mod system and they were just casualties of that transition or do you think there was a deliberate "Ditch the hood down robes" push?

Hearing that they had them in and pulled them adds a dark new twist to this affair.

Wow I guess I'm not the only one who's thought of parking his Guardian until they fix the hood on/off thing. I enjoy playing my character but the hood takes away all the personality of my toon. I am amazed they missed this as immersive as this game was designed to be....

WOW

Do we actually have any official response to this?

I mean, if this issue is actually not going to be addressed in any near future, then I am definitely parking my guardian now.

When they were in beta i really dont understand the whole thing.

I am really curious about the reason. There must be a reason i dont see... maybe they really wanted to avoid the pull-factor in the first wave of character generation and made them ugly hero-capes just keep players off the Jedi Knight... but i guess there must be a more wise reason.

This is EXACTLY what they want! To balance the population by making Knights no fun to play.
And have to admit its working. My knight is still on coruscant, and I have a LVL5 legacy already.

But I dont enjoy the other characters, because that is not what I want to play.

I went to bed last night wondering why I`m raging about this so much. Then I realized, that years ago my first post was about jedi robes, and how important it is to feel like a jedi when playing.

Then I calmed down as all the screenshots and videos came out showing jedi looking awsome. And I realized, that I have been lied to.

This in not the game that they promoted, and not the game I payed 50 for. You can not advertise a PC with one spec, and sell a different configuration and get away with it. Same here. You can not advertise Jedi Knights being great to play, and give us this load of ####.

Bioware, if you lie to people, they will rage and want their money back. JK was the reason I bought this game. So here: I want my money back!
