Reading is a skill?


Anyway, don't know what people are getting all worked up over - Bioware warned ahead of time that it was going to be some time before they could get better looking armor sets in-game but that they heard everyone loud and clear and will focus more on SW looking stuff.

If I had to guess, I would venture to say there will be one more tiered recolor that comes out with whatever the next operation is, and then after that, there will be new armor styles for whatever the next tier is going to look like.
Link please, because from what I READ they talk about a new tier or armor.

"New Weapons and Armor – Upgrade your characters’ effectiveness and appearance with the Legendary Dread Guard gear." That part made me laugh, really hard.

You do that with layers of fire retardant material, not a skirt.

It's obviously not a copy of it but it's clearly inspired by.


But back to the main point

Star Wars has ALWAYS had ridiculus looking armor

ill add more later
Please do add more later, because the "jedi" armor you posted where all "darths" therefor, sith.

And just because you found 5 ridiculous looking pictures of some SW toon's doesn't mean the vast majority likes them and that BW should implement them into the game. (BH/WH gear)

To be fair, I thought My Little Pony at first, but when you said Care Bears, I thought you were right and I was wrong because Care Bears always seemed to have had a "that's what Friendship is all about" thing going on kind of like G.I. Joe's knowing is half the battle.

Edit: Forgot the on topic stuff Lets be honest, tier gear, or non-tier gear, aside from Troopers, and maybe bounty hunters, when it comes to orange gear most classes have two, maybe three sets (out of what, 10?) that aren't hideous.

I really hate the smuggler tripoint hat. Outside of that it looks ok, but I get a 1776 vibe off of it. Though I thought I hated the warhero smuggler hat and it grew on me. The imperial agents of course look bad ***..

The red isn't terrible but I still can't understand all the general crap that's been shoved onto the armour. It all looks like haphazard additions made at the last minute. The bum bag? The flask or tea above that? The second flask of tea between my shoulder blades? I know the Empire is based on us English lot, but really, slaves carry the tea on the battlefield.

I talked to David Hunt (Systems Designer), and he shed some light upcoming gear. He said that (for PvE), Terror from Beyond's Hard Mode will include a new set of gear that is a sub-tier of the larger tier that started with Campaign gear. It will also have non-slot restricted armornings. Nightmare Explosive Conflict will speed up the acquisition of the new set and provides new challenges for Operation groups.
There you go.

Indeed, learn to read before you rage and make yourself look silly.

Hey, Bioware, have you seen all the people running around in that awesome looking 1.2 armor? Me neither....

EDIT: The design in itself (without the colors) looks so ugly that even with 10.000 dark side points I would not subject any of my companions to wearing this armor. (Maybe Skadge, but certainly not the ones I like....)

Are you F***ing serious?!? C'mon Bioware.... why is every new armor set more and more pathetic... what happened to the effort that went into the Tionesse, Columi and Rakata gear?? ... the PVP gear w/ some exceptions is aweful looking ... but the newest bit of CRAP you have thrown in the game is absolutely excuse-less!
If Rock 'n' Roll was a drug, I would of OD'd along time ago

Way to go Bioware, waste 200 million on voice acting that almost no one listens to anymore, and keep pumping out the worst looking gear in history. I mean seriously, WTH is this garbage, I have seen better designs in high school art students then this. Fire all of your designers. Just when I thought, they can't do any worse than the thigh-high smuggler boots that make my toon look like a ******, they come out with this.

Hey, at least Bioware can claim the top spot for an MMO in at least one category, ugliest gear.
