^^ THIS ^^
I have no idea why someone feels "force" to do anything as meaningless as achievements. It is not like BW will reward you with +500 to all stats per achievement like some apparently feel so.
Everything you have in a game is a choice, from space, through heroic missions to PvP. You can do it all, if you are a completionist, or don't if you are not, it is really simple

Personally, I think it is a stupid rumor that has no foundation in any facts. Giving all characters some armor for completing some legacy stuff? That doesn't sound right...

Well if you only play one toon then you've done less then someone who has 8... Naturally you're going to fall behind in achievements. How does that not make sense to you? They want ppl to play the game as much as possible and only playing one toon really limits what you can do so this puts an incentive in to have ppl roll another toon. Are you upset that you don't get to do a legacy force storm since you rolled a trooper and that's all you play? Or that you only have one buff when other ppl have all four? When you hit your weekly lockouts then you may as well only turn the game on for a FP a day and then wait for the weekly reset... of course you're going to fall behind on your legacy achievements...

I think this system is great and fills a lot of ppl's needs, a real home run for BW!

for those who like to work for achievements its a perfect fit...

and for those who need to complain about everything, BAM, one more thing to throw on the pile of stuff they don't like and can complain about...


Now I do think that it can and will be refined and tweaked over time and will be improved. Nothing is ever perfect in these games right off the bat. Things are always subject to change in future patches and updates... so for all the people that think its not exactly everything that it could be (me included) just wait.... it will get better over time

So what exactly do I get for completing those achievements? If it's only prestige rating and a title here and there, then it's weak. Not motivating for me.

You can get 700 Cartel Coins, but that's really not that many.
The dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins.
It always wins because it is everywhere.

What more do you want for something you receive in addition to normal gameplay? You get what you always get with any achievement system in any game - bragging rights

Bragging rights lol, some of us could care less what the other players think. How about +1crit chance to crafting for becoming a master crafter? If there were some real rewards I'd be excited. Right now this is a slight step above the family tree.

They need to get Ted Nugent to record "Womp Rat Fever" to dance to.
