Please no species with unusual headbits or headforms until they have a solution for hoods and headtentacles.
We already have Twi'lek that can't wear hoods or have disappearing lekku when they wear certain masks.
We really don't need more of that bullthingy.
But make no mistake, I do want to be able to play Togruta and Kel'Dor and what have you,
but I want them to do it RIGHT. Seriously, Bioware, Twi'lek players are complaining about this since launch.
Get something going on this already.

More likely to see a race that doesn't require BW to make all new sets of armor to fit said race properly and one that speaks basic.

And I really doubt that we will still see faction division when it comes to new species.
The way to unlock current species as free to play is unlock them on your legacy, which will give you access
to them for both factions. Stands to reason that any new species will be unlocked along the same lines.
(Never mind that I find it icky that legacy unlocks are only for one server, not the account. Seriously, what the fork?)

Second, numerous threads already exist on this topic. Take the time to run a search and post in those, rather than starting a new thread.
Species race same idea
Ya you can guess what finger i'll be having up at your idea of what the "Real Star Wars" is.

I'd really like to see races that weren't just recolored humanoids.

I really hope we will see some of the races associated with the Hutt Underworld as playable to tie in with rise of the Hutt Cartel. As such my vote would go for

Trandoshian those loveable bounty hunters
Gran the lovable 3 eyed custodians of Jabbas palace.

So any races we add in the future will need to plausibly be able to speak basic.
Unfortunately this yet another example of BioWare NOT listening to it's customers base. This game would be far more popular if people could play species like wookies,droids,hutts and so on. I'm sorry but your story often gets in the way of having fun!

I'm part of the subscribing playerbase and I find most of the non speaking aliens annoying to listen to.

Sooo...maybe they ARE listening to it's customers.

Have a look at the long running poll on new races. Wookiees and Droids have a lot of votes, last time I checked Wookiees had the most votes.

Cel Cawdro's Ultimate "Community Desire for Species" Poll is the thread name. BioWare doesn't like for us to link to other topics so I won't provide a link. I can update that wookiee is no longer the top vote getter in that poll but it is still very popular with the third most votes.

Dammit, there go the Ortolans! (By the way, where are the merchandise Ortolan plushies?)

Also on that note, you could really record a few more "non-standard" phrases to drop into standard conversations and make them a bit more diverse.
