I asked Jason Attard (Senior Game Balance Designer) about whether or not we intend to bring the white crystals back. He said that we do intend to make this crystal available again in the future, but we do want it to remain very rare even when we do.
Thank you for your response.

Are you guys really insulting each other over white lightsaber crystals and individuality...in a video game based on Star Wars?

I hope I don't have to explain how silly that is.

I agree with removing coloured-black crystals or simply making them very rare and hard to get, not just for a few WZ comms. But there has been a black-white combination in Star Wars before, and it does look quite good. That one I would like to see, but again make it difficult to acquire and make sure it needs a lot of hard work to obtain, otherwise it isn't worth adding. That said, it is in game, but apparently only for ex-Bioware employees (or so I hear), which sucks on every level. Add more colours Bioware! I want a gosh darned sea-green crystal!

Honestly, I think they are ugly, you can't tell where the center starts and the glowing outer edge begins. Was not a fan of it then, am not a fan of them now. Not a fan of the Dark Crystals either. They are not even canon.

In SW books there is a black crystal called the Black Wing.

I know anything created with the name "Star Wars" has to be passed by Lucas Arts. My mother and my Father both have to deal with Lucas over a great many things they do, since they are tied in with a costuming group. That being said, I am shocked at some of the things that George Lucas is allowing to pass as "canon".

A good number of us, including me, does not consider everything they write in comics or books to be canon. Dark Lightsabers and white lightsabers to be one of them...and some of the sounds this game uses to pass off as lightsabers to be another.

It's a losing battle, we know, because in the end, George Lucas has the say so, but it does not mean we have to subscribe to these new ideas as to what is "canon" and what is not. IMO, if it was not in the movies, it should not be here.

Seems to me that George Lucas is pretty much allowing just about anything to pass as Star Wars now. I do not think he even listens to some of these sound bites people offer to pass as Lightsaber Sound Effects. I mean, seriously, one of them sound exactly like somebody held the microphone next to a box fan and recorded it. Sounds like crap. And Dark Colored Crystals...??? How is that a "Light" Saber? Wouldn't that be more like a "Dark" Saber? I don't know, guess I am just an old grouchy man, but sometimes these changes just go too far fetched from what it was in origin.

funny you should say that because

Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.

Hell no. keep the White crystals rare! and please don't make them buy-able with cartel coins. make some incredibly difficult quest line to get it. don't just give awesome **** away. It makes everything seem worthless.

"Omg I finally got the rarest saber crystal in all of star wars lore! ...... and so does everyone else with 5 bucks"
