Hood On/Off Toggle?

Still no toggle in 1.3? I'm hardly shocked, as I've almost lost all hope that it'll happen anytime in the acceptable future.

However, I feel that this is unacceptable.

Not only is that Guardian wearing a hood-down Battlelord's Chest, but he also doesn't have the Jedi braid, which would've been a nice option.
I swear they're just trolling us now.

They do it every single new content release. Every single one is accompanied by fresh images and fresh video of unattainable hood down options. If the Devs KNOW it's the coolest look for Jedi, and as such the go to image for all of their marketing, why do we still have no way of duplicating it? It's like not putting the Master Cheif helmet in Halo.

Honestly I'd be happy even if they removed hoods entirely, with no toggle - at least for the time being.

Would you guys agree?

Nooo, it's pretty cool having a Jedi hood man,

We should just at least have the option to have the thing up or down at our leisure. If you don't like hoods at all, do remember you can also wear smuggler and trooper gear, haha!

I was about to post up on here about the dude with his hood down again in the new content preview but y'all beat me to it. What in the blue hell Bioware, I'm sure giving us the hood down (and we can actually still see the damn thing on the back of our robe, you know, like in the movies we all know and love) option is much easier than, say, oh, I dunno, creating a new PLANET perhaps??

It's insulting, isn't it? They totally know how much cooler it looks (otherwise it wouldn't be the promo material), and flat out refused to let us appear that way. It's hugely insulting that they removed some of the hood down armors from the beta, and still rub our noses in it with all the promo videos and pictures. They know we want it, but won't give it to us....who are they saving it for? the NPCs? The nameless NPC guarding my ship locker on the Fleet looks cooler than I do.....hooray, mission accomplished

They have a new promo wallpaper available for download with the battlelord armor with it's hood down and resting on the jedi's back.....I'm going to print it out just to puke on it, that's how insulting that is.

I rolled a Chiss Jedi Knight, guardian, following 1.2 without knowing about this hood-situation. Without being able to wear a hood-down armor, No one else can tell, and I'm the only one who knows he's an awesome-looking Chiss.

And the Sith? Totally got hood down armors, many choices in fact, from day one. It is long past time to let the Jedi be the Jedi that BW is clearly excited enough about to continually show them off.

Oh yes you are spot on we have all the hood down options we could want and then some, when the only damn thing we want is a hood UP option! It's the same crap they pulled with the purple light sabers originally, not letting you guys have it and making it Imperial only through the f'ed up RNG champion bags, only this time in reverse. And then the screenshots and trailers ****, if I see one more SI with a hood up armor I am gonna go up in arms, its beyond insulting. And to add further insult to injury, as you guys have already pointed out, there are DOZENS of NPCs with the armor we want, so we know the items are there and they only need to make them available to us via a vendor or a crafter, hell even a random world drop would be a welcome change! Isn't it the epitome of self-defeating to readily have what your community wants but not give it to them? *** devs seriously!!!1

P.S. I make it a point to never vent in forum posts, as it rarely accomplishes anything, but patience is REALLY wearing thin on this issue that should even be an issue.

I didn't know you guys had it just as bad in reverse. Is there a thread like this on the Sith forums?

Alas no, we Sith are too busy plotting your demise /insert evil laugh! But in all seriousness, this is by far the largest thread about the hood toggle option on the forums, though there is a very similar one on the SW forums asking for more hood-up gear. There are dozens of others but most are just 2-3 posts long. Those of us who want this option (the people who are concerned with how their character looks and not just obsessed with beating the game and getting the best stats, not that there is anything wrong with that) are not nearly as vocal as say the PvP people, who by God will tell you of the most minute imbalance and back it up with more statistical data than most governments require before authorizing a nuclear strike! That being said I donít think the issue here is BioWare not knowing about this, itís just that they have chosen to assign it low priority even though in my opinion, albeit of limited value as my knowledge in this field is Ė lacking, there is a simply fix as I stated in my post above. Right now I am on vacation in Europe and I wonít be actively playing until I come back in late August, so I am fine waiting for now but this is really getting ridiculous. If they donít have it fixed by then Ė well I am not going to throw around empty threats that I will cancel my subscription, simply because I wonít, I enjoy the game in spite of its flaws (I think I am too old to have naÔve notions of perfection), but what I will do is put a curse on all the devs that will shrink their epeens to the size of shrived raisins /raises hands menacingly!
