Tats. Garish, clashing colors. Mass hysteria !

Hopefully, SWTOR players have better tastes than some of the color/gear combos from GW2 or Aion.
Oh yea. Im all down for this.

The color combos in the promo are Blue & Gold, Red & Gold, Silver, Purple & Pink, Red & Blue, Black & Red, Black & Blue, and Black. Those are "hideous" color combos? Perhaps I don't have your credentials as celebrity stylist or whatever other qualifications you may have, but those all seem like pretty standard color combos.

Not sure the basis for the Chicken Little comment here. People can already dress their characters in a tacky fashion if they want....and no one is forced to unify colors to chestpiece. If people want mismatched, then they can do that now in the again. People were calling for armor dyes since beta-testing precisely because this game WAS "clown college" at launch. Unless you had an entire set of the same armor, you had no option but to look mismatched. Now, you can unify to chest but if you're wearing pieces from different sets, they still don't necessarily come out looking the greatest.....pants are one that comes to mind. It makes absolute sense to give people the option to color their boots or pants without forcing them to color the entire outfit the same color. Again, this may go against your celebrity stylist background, but sometimes it looks better if the entire outfit isn't the exact same color....a little contrast can be good.

Exactly.

Wait a sec....which is it? You've got one guy claiming everyone is going to dress like clowns and another guy claiming that everyone is going to dress all white or all black. Two completely opposite, incompatible predictions. The reality lies in the middle.

The initial colors won't even been in the packs.....they will be for sale on the CM. The packs are designed way ahead of time. Anything beyond the first 48 colors could be in packs only....or the packs could contain duplicates of what you can buy off the CM. However, I think expecting black to only be available through packs is about as realistic as the people who predicted it would cost 3,000 to unlock the Cathar.

What about the Monochrome Clown League? They role play "old school" (as in: before there were color computer displays... OOOOOOLLLLLDDD School). They need lovin's too you know.
sayonara SWTOR. I will miss the game, I will miss many players, I will NOT miss being lied to and deceived. I will not miss rookie level mistakes of epic proportions.

They never said that.

They never said that either. They said, "There will be 48 different Dye Modules at release. 25 will be available through the Cartel Market, 3 will be available from the Security Key and Collector’s Edition vendors, and 20 more will be available through the crafting system (schematics for some of which will be found on Reputation vendors)."

Note: that says, "through the Cartel Market." That does not mean that Cartel Market can't mean Cartel Packs, which I assure you it will.

I think you are grossly underestimating corporate greed.

Also known as the Sith Mime Guild, perhaps?

i got a laugh at the trooper memes that were coming from the lack of unify color to chest option.

A guildie is gonna rename Havoc Squad into Fabulous Squad tomorrow by making every member wear pink trooper armor.

I have a similar idea, only gonna go for a power rangers look.
