I love how people keep bringing up WoW as the game to beat. The IP is down to.....pandas? What are they going to release to sell their next expac, a playable species of fungus?

C'mon BW strains an eyelash making Cathar a playable species, and hoardes of cat people are eating it up. Hacks me off, they arn't adding something a little less human. But, it's something.

Soebody said it earlier, but did anyone notice there appeared to be only 5 players in that Op?

Pandas are not so different from the kittens (aka Cathar) we're getting, if you ask me

What I find slightly comical is when Legacy was first announced, there was discussion on whether or not Bioware would put up species specifically through Legacy, creating the system of leveling a throw-away character just to play the species you want to play.

The general noise was that Bioware would never do something like that.

Funny how things work out.

About the same from the Beta Forums when people screamed that Bioware would never copy World of Warcraft. They would be making gameplay that was shiny and new. After the announcement there was a complete 180 saying that they were smart to copy World of Warcraft...said by the very same people.

Amen Brother! The Cathar race is a red herring. It's just there as a distraction to try to make you forget just how unfinished this game really is, and to try to keep you from pressing the unsubscribe button.

I would take pandas and pokemon over what TOR has become. Which is an endless PVP grind once you finish the story. After that nothing matters, not even crafting, except your valor level and metals to earn better gear.
I once had a cool sig. I erased it. I joined the forums in the first hour. My disappointment is epic.

I think that they're a nice addition, and their inclusion doesn't greatly sway me one way or the other.

  1. Cathar are part of an expac, so being a normal subscriber isn't gonna get you it anyway.
  2. They are Cathar. Cat people. Its clearly not their intention to hook people in with cat people - worst bait EVER!
  3. While I'm at it; In what way are cats or cathar even remotely similar to pandas?

They're both cuddly species

On a more serious note, they're both species reminiscent of animals and part of the lore of both games. However, it wasn't my intention to derail this thread, I was merely trying to point out both choices of new race may be appealing to some and distasteful to others. One of the reasons I left WoW, aside from burning out on the game, is their plans for the panda expansion. Well, now I get kittens instead

Most, if not all of Star Wars' species are "reminiscent" of animals.

Wookies and Ewoks = Dogs
Hutts = Slugs
Trandoshans= Lizards

etc...
