What if you found out that Bioware were planning a massive expansion that was codenamed SWtOR 2 - because of the extensive improvements that were planned. The development was estimated to take about 5 years, rather than start from scratch, the decision made is to instead do: Level 65-100

what would you hope would be included in this game? and how should it be done. Bear in mind, the idea is to leave the missions and flashpoints of level 1-65 unchanged. Level 65 onwards is anybodies guess, the whole system could change, combat, everything from that point on. Furthermore, there would be an option to start from level 65 onwards if you have at least 1 character that reached level 65.

Feel free to propose all you want, from space games to force jumping & flying in planets, land on planets, a new enhanced combat system, anything you want within reaon, bear in mind you will still have access to level 1-65 zones and nothing much would be done to those zones although planets like Coruscant and Drumond Kass may have more zones added to them.

Don't you mean level 55, then level 56 to 100.

1) I want class stories back. I'd pay another 75.00 for the deluxe edition

2) QOL improvements, guild capital ships etc

3) And last, more classes and species.
GSS Legacy, Jedi Covenant,
Guild Leader for Galactic Security Solutions (Pub)
Imperial Independence (Empire)

thanks btw, at least one answer not making me regret starting a topic on these forums. I meant level 65, becuase you should expect 2 mini Makeb-like expansions in the space of 5 years going from 55-60 and 60 to 65

we already have SWTOR 2.4

how about SWTOR 4.0 speculation

- 100+ star systems to fly around, mine trade combat, fully customizable ships

- landing on new added planets/ atmospheric flight

- Podracing, Pazaak, Casino

- Player bounties

- 3 massive open world sandbox planets added, Kashyyk, Dagobah and some weird named new planet
purpose: open world housing, exploring, "real" speeders with actual Star Wars behaviour, day/night/weather change

- 1 new sandbox planet added every year, with some themepark zones for dailies and the usual more of the same stuff

- 8 new professions to fit into the sandbox environments (Entertainer, Farmer, Animal trainer, furniture crafting, etc...)


AND GIVE EVERYONE THE BOOT WHO SUGGESTS TO ADD FUTURE "CLASS STORIES"

We already exist and play this game. Shocking, isn't it?

On topic:
Get their act together about class stories, make them as interesting and as involved as the Imperial Agent, if not moreso.
Equal distribution of [Flirt] and romance options, across faction, class, gender and sexuality.
Character customisation (wibble)

Possibly alter the combat system slightly? More methods to dodge AoE and telegraphed attacks and the like? I don't really know, I mean, I've played GW2 and WoW, they're very different, I did like the way the dodges and stuff worked in GW2, but perhaps that sort of combat design doesn't allow for bigger group play? I like raids.

More nuanced class trees? It would probably make balance harder, though, if you could have ten different playstyles of one AC based on how the trees are designed and work together, and any update patch would result in far more threads of "Oh Em Gee Biofail! You borkded my class!", but... could be fun...

Scavenger hunt quests!

s!
You think Disney is insane enough to pay 100+ million $ for an additional month worth of content?

8 x Class stories ARE OVER and BURIED, now they can finally work on content with long term value.

It's Disney - girls are allowed to dream with Disney.

Not everyone agrees with you, you know that's ok, right? We're allowed to have differing opinions, but you just seem to be really angry that not everyone's agreeing with you.
