If they had done something that's not a reskinned standard humanoid, maybe (think GW's Charr, which would have been a direction for the Cathar, but a nightmare with the armor system already being strained to the breaking point by pointy ears). The way it is, what was running around in the video looked disturbingly like it was taken from Thundercats.

Honestly, I agree with that. But that's only that one Cathar. There are lots of other kind of looks for Cathar. Also, who knows, Thundercats might have gotten the look from Cathar.

I so totally agree. Throwing an ugly (not even close on my 'cool species list') cat person into the mix doesn't progress our current toon personal class stories/romances AnY story line. I hate to say this but it feels like WoW when they got desperate and started throwing xpacks into the mix a lot.

F2P is such a goofy move, some say it will may you money. Well, not opening your yap to announce the game was coming four (4) years before you could get close to beta would have's like that Christmas you spent with your single parent after a divorce...all that hype and no deliverables. A real let down.

Tis' sad.
Yes. My whole guild left yesterday for GW2 and that is really sad...true only about 68 people in the guild but they are now gone due to lack of interest by EA.

I also noticed a really huge drop the last two days in fleet traffic...I'm not talking 50 or 60 what I've been watching is from 257 to 56. The traffic does pick up later at night, but makes me wonder if a lot of other people are like me 'sick of being pregnant' bring on the 'HOT NEW' fix your issues and let's birth this baby...or quit and I'll go somewhere the company really values it's customers, where they realize we know more about gaming - most likely - than they do ... and actually fix issues, listen to the paying customer, awe .... I'm just bored now.

The many planets being open areas was a great idea, the crafting FANTASTIC, classes are all star wars oriented and great to play with, so instead of adding more of what we already have why not go through these forums, see what your gaming community wants, then meet those needs and expand the population! I could never get into world of Warcraft, to me this game is better then WoW, but blizzard listens to their players and meets their needs. No one cares about the overall vision you people have, we want an original and fun game, but it can only go so far before its just to pathetically overwhelming. Free to play will still diminish your game, over a few years this game will die, you people want to save this game then look at all the ideas people have and act on them, the players who play your game everyday and love it for what it is, will always have ideas to throw around, just saying, sometimes its good to listen to other people and act on those ideas.
They don't care. It took me a while to realize that one simple fact. They do not care what we think, what we need, what we want etc...Sad but true and the truth is in the forums. Look way back and see we've been asking for items, fixes etc since beta. We get 'COMING SOON' honestly, they think we're stupid and don't understand games and MMO's when the actual fact is we probably know more about mmo's than they do...

I'm quite disapointed about the cathar, sure its a great looking race and all but one would believe the Togruta would come first since they're a race much more seen in the movies and series and all. so yea cool new update, still no togruta and yes the question remains "when". btw they said updates will come more frequently as in 4 months instead of 5 ?

I really want to go to naboo, mustafar, the transoshan planet, the wookie home planet,geonosis, and would even pay for more companion races like a gungan warrior companion.
And you WILL pay for new companions...because thats how they will be implemented...they just need more money from subscribers to make their free2pay game...all is the cash-shop...

The one thing those cat people are good for is:
Target practice on my BH

Actually cathar will be good for PVP since i can enjoy frying the kitties
Agreed here, why Cathar when we're missing so many of the essential species from the Star Wars universe?
Firstly, a Cathar over Wookies as the first playable species introduced after launch!? Get real.
Where are the Rodians, Mon Calamarians, Trandoshans, Sullustans, or any others that are easily recognizable and have existing character models within the game?
Secondly, there's absolutely no benefit, besides the aesthetic, to creating alts of different species.
How about starting polls for the inclusion of content like this?

I think people should stop blaming EA for what Bioware does.
It were Bioware devs hyping us up with lies before game released.
It were Bioware devs promising us to deliver content fast so we will feel like we're getting our moneys worth.
It's Bioware trying to string us along with "comming soons".
It's Bioware who took 6 months to prepare server transfers.
It's Bioware devs who are unable to release single patch without adding more bugs.
It's Bioware who were so full of themselves when releasing DA2 and right after when disregarding concerns of their fans.
It's Bioware witch decided to sell to EA.
What Bioware does is Biowares fault. None of it is fault of EA.
Painfull truth is they turned from awesome company which brand was a guarantee of an awesome game, into company that releases mediocre games barely worth the time. Even small polish studio like CDProjekt Red with it's Witcher 2 managed to leave all Bioware games past DA:O FAR behind.
