Every class at 15, not sure what to do/pick

I seriously have every class, and every class with both sub specs for both empire and republic sitting at or around 13-16 but can't seem to get myself to play one. I tend to just get bored and make another one, rinse and repeat.

I loved beta, I played it non stop and had a BH in the 40s right before live.

I can't seem to get that urge to level one specific class, I like them all for some reasons and hate them all for some reasons (abilities/play style)

not sure what to do, I njoy the game but can't get that "umph" to want to level one class all the way up.

any tips?

Playing to 15 will tell you very little about a class, most classes you need to get a 31 point talent before it feels like a proper class, so if you don't like it by level 40, then yeah roll something else.

If you do not have the conviction to level a class to 50 then maybe MMO's are not for you.

This isn't really something that someoen else can tell you. The only advice I would have is to first figure out what role you would like to fill, then keep trying all the classes that apply to that role.
I've got a sniper, jugg, assassin and merc to 50, and they all have their ups and downs, but at the end of the day I love playing them all.

so play them as you feel like it.

I have one of every class...not every spec..but every class..(though I'll prob have multiple same-class-diff-spec if we get more server char slots with 1.2)

they're all now finished with chapter 1..7 chars 31-32...the 8th char is now 40 and I've started working on a different alt.

just play them as you feel like...or do what I did and pick one and focus on it till chapter 1 is another...alternate rep/emp for some variety.

other than one can really tell you what class you'll like the most.

may as well lvl them all up little by little until you figure out which one you like the most

Level them all up to the point where they all have their ships. At least this will allow you to explore the galaxy and see where their class stories are taking them. By that time it's just a question of what your play style is. You like being in a mob's face? You like raining fireworks from afar? You enjoy managing a party's health? You enjoy managing mobs and moving them around like chess pieces? You like stealth? Or you just like blowing stuff up? Go visceral first.
If you once enjoyed the game but no longer do because of changes that were made, then you owe it to the game, yourself and others in your same situation to be not just heard but acknowledged and fully understood.

Quit for awhile. Then some days later you'll start to be like... "Darn, I want to play X." Then you'll know.

My advise would be focus on one for now, see where the class story takes you and get to a point where you unlock the legacy system and can create a legacy surname then re-examine which to focus on fully after.

Unless the behaviour has already changed and legacy unlocks straight away and you begin collecting legacy XP from the get go, your essentially losing out in legacy progression by levelling all classes to 15 and stopping.

Reason being that once you have unlocked the legacy system and created a legacy name, any character you do play will contribute experience to your global legacy xp pool, making it that much easier for you to access new legacy content in 1.2 and future updates without the hefty 1mil+ credit price tag you'll have to pay to unlock otherwise.

If your going to tank, pick a ranged, if your going to dps, still pick ranged, if your going to heal well then theres room for choice I suppose
