Dear Bioware: Will we ever get prequel-style Jedi outfits?

I've been begging and begging for three years. You trashed the hood toggle and I gave up on it. But why are there so little unarmored Jedi outfits in a role-playing Star Wars game? Why are there no prequel-style outfits in-game, despite them appearing in various SWTOR-related media?

Are there any technological issues with adding outfits like those: http://i.imgur.com/9ha8ELu.jpg http://i.imgur.com/2NoBT6o.jpg http://img1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb2.../ThreeJedi.jpg

We've seen you making long sleeves now and they look and work great. We've seen you make leg-pieces which featured the continuation of the chest piece (3.0 craftable gear) and works very well with long robes (no clipping).

Where is the issue, Bioware? Licensing?

I can understand that, perhaps, you might have had a different vision of Jedi outfitting for this game / era but what's the point now considering how many ridiculous and out-of-reality outfits are being delivered through the cartel market? And if that would've been the case, then iconic Jedi outfits wouldn't appear in promotional art work.

It's really surprising that they haven't made it into the game. Please, can I ask for an answer in this matter? It's been three years. :[

and yet plenty of outfits are released on a monthly basis despite the other game's needs. Afaik the team designing cartel market stuff is separate from whoever is fixing bugs. but you just have to argue with me

I agree with the OP, I bought the valiant jedi outfit from the cartel market because I couldnt stand most other jedi outfits, would love to have proper robes, or other variations of rob/armor and even armor without robe.
The current outfits are alittle over the top, wish they could just tone some down abit, atleast for the more traditional classes
Remember, peace is a lie

" Just have to argue with you " you're some important folk that I'm unaware of?

Actually it would be great if bioware could just sit and make you said outfit, would mean they wouldn't have problems with the game, and spare enough time to grant these wishes to single folks

But, yeah, stuff's happening, affecting cm also imo. Notice how packs come around every month or so. 5 weeks-ish since 1st revanite pack batch came out, no new pack ( acolyte, according to collections ) , and no eta on its release.

so.. end of the day, in your original post you asked what's the problem, if it's licensing, or else. Answer to that most likely is Messed up state of the game currently.

Wanna know something funny Alec?

With that wording, I'm prefectly fine with supporting this request.

No demanding tone, no referring to them as "traditional" and no talk about how the current jedi outfits are "wrong".
Perfectly reasonable post asking for a certain type of outfit from the star wars mythos.

Come on BW, give the man what he needs.

Actually, there is an ETA on its release.

SWTOR posted pictures of outfits from it on their tumbler account the other day, but swiftly removed them again.
BUT, in one of the posts at least it stated that it was "coming next week" and this was on the 7th.
So I fully expect the next pack to be released on the 13th.
