I... honestly don't get the problem. Nobody forces you to say "yes, my trooper lives here with my sith" in an RP Situation. Nobody will ever see both of these characters inside the house at the same time, so... whats the problem exactly?

The displayed trophies? Those are OOC in most cases anyway, if you're not particularily fond of playing a mass murderer who tends to go on rampages that kill the population of a small city whenever he visits a new planet (you need to get them kill-achievements, after all). If you display trophies, just tell people they are art-pieces in Character.

Again, I don't see the problem.

So really, what I'm getting at is that I'm sorry you can't figure out an RP reason for Sith and Jedi to be in the same house ever. If you'd like me to scan your family tree and character list, I'd be happy to help you come up with some reasons.
You don't need to come up with an RP reason for that. The family tree is absolutely useless in RP anyway.

Sorry that you're not really that creative. Some people use their legacies like a family on the same faction and families DO on occasion occupy the same space. I'm a HUGE RPer and have more characters than I care to admit, but some of my characters by their own personalities don't see the need to have a home beyond their ships (my Smuggler and my Bounty Hunter for instance), my Agent spends most of her time at the office and her ship is also more used as a sleeping area than her actual apartment, that leaves 4 houses for my big players, and if I wanted more I'd just pony up some CCs.

If you don't want to be a creative storyteller and roleplayer, that's your problem, don't call this a "non-RP" DLC when it is, you're just not using your brains.

The only legacy wide part is the storage. You get a faction specific stronghold on your home planet (s) plus a stronghold on Nar Shaddaa. And despite the fact that Nar Shaddaa can be visited by both factions, I don't see anywhere a mention that if you have characters in both factions that they will be sharing a single stronghold here.

which seem to indicate that faction separation is being looked at and the option for multiple strongholds would remove the need to timeshare. Well, time will tell how it pans out.

No, there's nothing ambiguous here. They are legacy-wide. The previous Strongholds page strongly implied that but it is confirmed now. The updated Strongholds page says "Choose a prestigious apartment in the heart of your faction’s capital world, or live in style among the high-rollers of Nar Shaddaa. Prefer a more remote location? Set up on the desert sands of Tatooine. Or have all four – your Legacy can own multiple Strongholds!" Then you have Eric's post in the Announcement thread:

I have no idea how anyone could think it's unclear whether Strongholds are legacy-wide after that. The comment you referenced relates to specifically the issue of DK and Coruscant.....i.e., what about Republic characters in your legacy accessing the DK stronghold or Imperial characters in your legacy accessing the Coruscant stronghold. Those particular Strongholds may be faction-specific within your legacy.....but it's been made crystal clear that Strongholds are legacy-wide.

I'm glad they're Legacy wide, all my character are related and nothing like coming home to a dysfunctional Christmas at the old Stronghold.

One thing, those trophies are not 'required' to be displayed. They're optional. So, you can tailor your Stronghold to your particular character.

Secondly, there are 'three' Strongholds that we can get now. For me, at least, that gives me a place to put three of my main chars and tailor them differently to fit each char's demeanor and personality.

Granted, I wish, like you, that we got a Stronghold for each character, but if it's not possible, then I'll survive. Though, I do hope that there's an option to purchase additional Strongholds for different characters.
Agreed....and, actually, there are now 4 strongholds as they announced Tatooine today as one too. Those can be treated as 4 separate player houses....or for someone creative (aren't RP'ers supposed to be creative) then multiple characters (but not necessarily all) can share certain strongholds. They do have quite a few rooms if the NS one is coming with 5 rooms unlocked for subs. For those of us that have a LOT of characters, this is plenty. I don't need 4 houses for each of my 22 characters. 88 houses to design and maintain would be ludicrous, lol.

I will bet you that you will be able to purchase additional strongholds in the CM. This is only going to be a problem if you make it one.
