Really happy to see this feature in the game, as I'm the type of player who likes to progress these kinds of things!

Seriously....If you are going to add content, add content that has inherent value, you know, something with ACTUAL in game use. I do not give a flying fig if I get some "so-called awsome-sauce" title. What frikkin good is that going to do except tell everyone in game how I wasted my time to get some stupid title? Am I the only person in this game that see's this??

I was wondering about the achievement for the Czerka Crate-O-Matic what if you got the drop but no longer have the crate, or if you bought the item from another player will you still get the achievement for it?

Sweet, it's about time. Now only if they would bring reputation for every planet starting at level 1. Not too keen on it all being level 50 content.

It is nice that titles are moved to the Legacy Title system, but I hope those titles will still be displayed before or after our name, right? (please please please not like the current legacy titles like "Gree Research Assistant", those are too small and they seem unimportant)

If you've read any of the other comments in this thread, you would have noticed that there are many people that find this type of content valuable to their playstyle. They are just a representation of the broader playerbase that doesn't frequent or respond in the forums, so be assured that there are thousands of people that would agree with them.

Content doesn't have to make you happy. If it makes someone else happy, it was worth putting in. You don't have to use the achievement titles, you don't have to look at how much time some else has "wasted" by looking at their achievements, you don't have to go hunt 1000 beasties. Go find content you do like and do that.

I for one will be enjoying doing this stuff, hell I've already busied myself maxxing out professions and republic/imperial characters so I have a slew of new titles to play with, I'll also be going back to planets to get achievements I'm missing since it's something that I happen to enjoy.

In case you're missing the point here, and it wouldn't surprise me if you are, this is something me and I'm sure quite a lot of others will enjoy, and there are those who wont care, but guess what? They can't please everyone in an MMO, you hate it? Door's that way make sure not to let it hit you on the way out. Otherwise accept the fact that stuff gets released/done that some will enjoy, others will not give a flying womp rat about.

How people play the game is their business. I have no qualms with how people play the game. I just find this inconceivable that content is added that has ZERO use other than a title and possible cartel coins. Why on earth would I go out of my way to grind the living hell out of this game just for a title? I see no reason why anyone would enjoy that. It's like laying on a bed of nails and having sex on it for the fun of it, or walking barefoot over hot coals, maybe doing a little dance in the coals just because. Please, explain it to me so I can better understand the mentality of these people.
