If Jedi's would have started as kids from level 1 through 3 or 1 through 2 it would have made you more closer to your master Orgus Din, but instead it seems that you get assigned to din when your like 20 and they just brush up saying your previous masters said you were a great jedi .

if they would of done a different scenario like this " the young Jedi (Player) and Master Orgus Din are training in the Jedi Temple on coruscant with and Orgus din has brown hair instead of grey and you do something impressive like a force push or beat him in a duel"

i think a little interaction early on would have made for a more promising story cause right now i dont really care what happens to Orgus Din because he took me as a padawan so late in life. I Hope they can fit something like this in in Xpacs like if you have a son or daughter with a companion and interact with them.


All im saying is i think they missed a opportunity to step it up a notch emotionally in this game and it sucks , i hope my suggestions make sense , thanks for reading.

IMO it's not a good idea.
Luke was not a child when he started his training. So I think it doesn't fit ToR also.
Those who have power should restrain themselves from using it.

Contrarily, I think that would be absurd.
aka Arkajos, Sith Juggernaut on Assassins of Sion
aka Falkett, Jedi Sentinel on Wall of Light

Well I think it would have been very cool to start as a kid in SWTOR
It woul absolutely have made sense, you would have a stronger relationship to Orgus Din if you had
trained with him as a child.
But overall I'm not complaining about this. SWTOR is my dream as a Star Wars fan come true

when you start in SWTOR its implied that you've been training for years and years and you just came to tython to complete your final trials to advance past padawan status. which works for MANY reasons.

- it allows freedom of character past for each player to create a small backstory as how and why they were trained by the jedi. how they were discovered and when.
- it starts the player off old enough that they feel in control of their character and not handicapped by the fact that they are a child.
- the player, character and situations can start off as more mature and serious, where if they started as a child it'd feel necessary to add in lighthearted silly humor.
- it skips the unnecessary parts of the jedi training. this isn't the start of the jedi's training, its the start of their story arch. allowing for you to start doing important things out of the gate.
- it allows for them to show your character as the lore-wise ****** that he/she is. rather than a new student who doesnt understand anything.
- players can get more into character when playing a character their age or at least an adult. playing as a child feels awkward for most adults.
- forces awkward time skips from childhood training to adulthood, why? it doesnt help the story at all. it just forces back story on players who'd rather have an open backstory for their own headcanon.
- even if this was a good idea, which its not. why just jedi? sith are often trained from childhood as well. so why not start a sith off as a child? cus you'd end up killing other children most likely? too dark? seems like a double standard to me.
- it would slow down pacing, opening as a child, doing some goofy training sequences, then jumping ahead to adulthood to finish your trials. seems really poorly paced and forced.

in short i completely disagree.

Its an MMO, you need to be thrust straight into action. The story supports the main gameplay mechanics, it does not supersede them.
Its all the force's fault.

Corso is my sidekick..or more specifically that little monkey you dress up in a tux and sit in a corner to look interesting but in reality doesn't really do anything.

Quoted for truth, this exactly sums up my feelings.

yeah the reason i picked jedi was cause your suppose to feel close to orgus din and i really dont and feel i could of been just fine without him and all the backstory you get as your character is you've done awesome in training as as child i just wished we could of seen what makes my character so unique , instead of being told like in KOTOR 1 where they showed that training montage. something like that

Why should I feel close to Orgus Din? He took us as a padawan sure, but just like the other classes you are thrust into your destiny with minimal training (Because that would be very boring and lack gameplay appeal). I think you are trying to find a master/padawan relationship in him when you aren't supposed to, its supposed to show your maturity by being thrust into the spotlight as your own Jedi.

The real master/padawan comes from Kira Carsen/Nadia Grell interaction.
