Why all the ugly PvE armor?

More like Guild Wars than Star Wars

http://dulfy.net/2013/08/28/swtor-or...-vendor-items/

hk-51 Crysis game skin, a recycled trooper gear with a stupid box on it ( why, bioware? why? ) and a MICKEY MOUSE COSTUME YAY

Yes we know you can take out mods and put them into whatever you want, but in my opinion these new possible PvE set models are ridiculous. If you showed them to someone who doesnt play this game, they'd have no idea it was Star Wars.

Why can't bioware put a bit more effort into these armor sets...you might as well just give us the mods and armorings and enhancements separately instead of making me pay like 35k credits to take them all out the ugly armor in my opinion.

But hey, at least the new possible pve and pvp gear isnt recycled versions of the last tier ones.

Some people (like me) actually want to show off their gear and in game achievements to people but are disappointed because the gear is UGLY...

This is all in my opinion.

Well, lets be honest here...who didn't see this thread coming? Nobody? Yeah.

They look good. Colouring is off imho...so long as they're dyeable...all is good. Besides...you apparently weren't here at launch. Armour was worse.
The Empire is not evil, and the Republic is not good...it is all a matter of opinion.

The gear in this game is 50/50 for me. Half of it I really like, the other half is fraking horrible. It's always a mixed bag, just like every other MMO's gear. To be fair though, half the reason the gear isn't that bad is due to the cartel market. Otherwise, it would be pretty bad, since most of the tier sets look pretty horrible. The ROTHC sets are better than pre-xpac, but sill. Mixed bag.

I actually really like the Hallowed Gothic set except for the helm. The stupid bat helm is zarking stupid. Otherwise it's really well done, and I'll definitely pick the chest/pants up for my sorc to wear

Oh hey, I can finally turn my knight into a bat... and my trooper, well... guess it's back to cartel market armor. Once again, the art department threw the baby out with the bath water. Why oh why, can't they put this stuff up on Facebook or some other place for votes. Apparently the gear design supervisor is as blind as the bat armor that he approved.

Rated this thread a five because it's a valid question why their art department can't get the armor right.

At release it was worse? At release we had for most classes the same armor copypaste-designed five times. Thats just a bit different to now. Now they combine parts from various armor to a 'new' one.

PvE and PvP armor ist still ugly, like it was at release.

The good looking you get in cartel market packs.

I think the only way to look decent in this game, is to mix and match whatever pieces you like together, to make your own look, and pray they're dye-able so you can customize that too.

Players need to be more creative and not depend so much on the designs they throw at us, because, they do pretty much suck as a whole, but there are individual pieces you can make work with other things.
