New "Bounty Hunter Event" isn't BH-exclusive?

I really hate coming off as one of those people that complains about everything, but... shouldn't a "Bounty Hunter Event" be exclusive to the Class for which it is named; Bounty Hunters? Perhaps it is BH-only, I'm merely going by a few screenshots which seemed to showcase a Gunslinger fighting an enemy, which sort of implied that this event will be open to all players.

Granted, we have next to zero information on what this new Event entails, and I have no idea how much content is actually being added. However, it seems to sort of undermine the entirety of the Role-Playing aspect to have a literal Bounty Hunter class that isn't any more inclined to hunt bounties than a Jedi or Trooper would.

Again, though; I could be reading the situation entirely incorrectly. This is purely an assumption gleaned from a handful of screenshots, which themselves aren't even indicative of the final product. Still, it seems like something that could be potentially devastating to the immersion of the game, so I thought it worth bringing up.

I do not think it is feasible to have events for each class separately.

yes let us put time and resources into an event that only 1/8th of the classes can do.

makes total sense!

and no "well they can make one for each class" isn't valid nor cost-prohibitive.

besides..we don't know how much sense the even will actually make for the rest of the classes to be doing...until..wait for it...we friggin know what it's about

LOL! You honestly thought this would be an even specific to one single class??? NEVER will that happen...ever!

Well, it doesn't serve anybody to reserve a voice of concern until it's already too late to do anything about it. I agree, it's probably not feasible to have an event based around every Class. However, I think it's hugely important to keep in mind that Bounty Hunters are, in fact, a Class unto themselves, and my knee-jerk concern is whether or not having an event in which everybody becomes a Bounty Hunter will leave the actual Class feeling kind of pointless.

It's a Bounty Hunter event but that doesn't mean that it couldn't affect the rest of the classes.
We don't know what their role will be. My guess is that although we will all probably end up doing the same or similar things, the reasons why we are doing them will be different. Kind of like the HK-51 questline.

But no, they shouldn't spend their time creating individual events for each class. That way 1 of the 8 classes could end up seeing an event of its own, in 3 years.

how would it make them pointless..more so than they already would be?

sure you go on some bounty hunts during the class story..but in the end you just end up...basically an imperial trooper..that just happens to not have to really answer to the rank structure.

There already is no "bounty hunting" in SW for "bounty hunters" to do...so..again...how could it possibly make things any different than they already are for your imperial troo..I mean bounty hunter?

Last time I checked, there were several quests throughout the game where an NPC says, "Hey, there is a bounty on this guy. You should go kill him and claim the reward." These quests are doable by everyone. Therefor, even though there is a specific class called Bounty Hunter, everyone is a bounty hunter. The Bounty Hunter class just does it for a living while it is a hobby for everyone else.
