Cathar race is a good choice. Many people wanted to play that race, and so bravo with that choice.
Overall the reveals look good but my concern is the timeline of these additions. If they are 1.3-1.4 then that is certainly good.

However, Bw needs to put some big warzones with sieging into the game to keep pvpers happy, which I am sure will take a lot of work since it will have to fit and have an affect possibly to fit with the theme of a large scale warzone. But, very important to implement with the release of GW2, and rifts 3 faction pvp as well.

Looks good, but the open world pvp systems are still missing from this game and I hope the new planets try to incorporate more of that, and possibly the old ones get refined for that as well.

Everything is nice and exciting, but I really have one issue: why Cathar?

Or better yet.. why ONLY Cathar?

I am still waiting for Togruta. Until then, I`ll pass this abomination of a race.

Things you are, still, doing wrong:
  • @0:21: First boss (Does not looks like SW to me, maybe Call of Cthulhu)
  • @0:22: Second boss (Not bad, not good either)
  • @0:24: Third boss (Coming for TSW promotion video, with magic portal in the back)
  • @0:51: Fourth boss (Not bad, not good either, does not feel very much SW though)

Game keeps being many players kiting a single boss.
At least make them look like SW.
[Reminder]


Cathar: only one new specie, far from the most requested one.
Doesn't even need to design any new gear and you already have the face meshes
Well a start but you certainly won't sprain one's ankle doing so.

One new space mission that'll get boring even before the 5th run.
Hopefully a placeholder until an (eventual) space revamp.

New planet Makeb: the scene does not sells it as it does not look that much different from the planets we have.
A search on the forum from yesterday and older reports only 6 posts (posts, not threads!) naming this planet. Certainly not the most asked one.

Finally Hk-51: which every forum lurker knows was in the client data file @launch.
So it took you over 6 month to finish and publish it.

New Warzone, good but... no word at all on world PvP?

New RAID & instance but... how about V.O. story. You know the 4th pillar?

Raising the level cap on an unfinished game already lacking too many features and PvE end content.
BTW was it the V.O. content because there was no mention of it.
Once the players will have burnt the new levels they'll still be left with nothing to do.

About the gear in the video

@0:13: Seems to me the devs missed the threads where players where asking to remove the carnival masks on the Dread masters and change them back to the old ones

@0:43: (Sith Warrior) Pikachu helmet. Do you guys did not get the memo or read the forums? Players don't like these non iconic looking gear.
You even acknowledged it and still you display it in your promotion videos.


Hope you don't really expect us to be excited by this announcement because it looks very bland in a yearly time frame.

Its the wolf/cat race of the game. People like to play those kind of races in general and so its a good decision, but I agree there should be more races.
