Just a half price discount would be alright... please?
You don't need to worry as you'll have access to all of your characters even if you were over the Max count. If we need to offer a substantial discount for additional character slots, we'll make that happen.

Hey there, just wanted to ask a few question for Keith or Eric regarding what has been said in the Roadmap, I'm crossing my fingers for a response.

Class balance :
Could we please have a real discussion topic with your balance team concerning utility changes ? Peoples are already worried to see this pushed even further (more than a year !), I think it would be appropriate to make sure that this specific matter -who really broke the gameplay experience for most of the players- is taken seriously by your team. Having proper feedback and discussion with players could also ensure that the changes are made in a balanced and fair way. We don't want peoples to be unhappy.
Any update also about class changes concerning tanks ? Juggernaut and Powertech are far behind what is needed in terms of tanking right now for both PvE and PvP, they should definitely need a look. Tanking is probably the most important part of a raid group, I think they deserve to see their issues resolved.


Server Merge :
Will we have a choice about where to move our character ? It has occured to me that some peoples may want to go back to their original server with the merge (a lot of french players left Nihilus/Mantle/Battle to The Red Eclipse, due to the lack of new people). It could be nice to allow them to go back to The Leviathan if they wanted to.

Character names :
This is purely a suggestion, but... Instead of asking players to be prepared for an eventual name change, why not bind character names to their account name ? This way it could allow the presence of multiple "Bob" or "Emily" on a specific server, because they don't have the same account name.
This would prevent a lot of issues regarding "who's more right to keep this name" (I'm thinking also about the huge mess it could be for Roleplayers, who can't always change their name all the time, due to... Roleplay)


Hope someone will take the time to answer my questions

I cannot express how happy I am with that. I was dreading having to reslot 20+ characters.
Don't freak out, I'm just here by the grace of a referal. Nothing more.

Tanking is the least affected by the class balance so I'm not sure why you think they are behind. Also we get more powerful augments that will already help a bit with the nerfed DPS and Heal classes.

They are doing that for guild names by adding the old server name but in the livestream they said they couldn't do anything like that for the character names.

Question regarding legacy merge:

Eric said last night that, basically, if you have two legacies that are the same level (like 50), the legacy that will the final one on the new server is selected randomly.

Does this mean that, if one legacy has less achievements or unlocks than the other, we could lose these achievements and unlocks in the random coin toss, just because these two legacies are at the same level?
- = = The Atrias Legacy = = -
Aryne, Jedi Sentinel | Cayra, Jedi Sage | Kherra, Scoundrel | Khenna, Vanguard
Vertos, Sith Juggernaut | Zedas, Sith Sorcerer | Ysari, Sniper | Neith, Powertech

Sigh, no.

That's purely about the name, nothing else. Please read this first before you come with more questions http://www.swtor.com/info/news/news-article/20171002

No sir, the one with the most achievements would be the one that would be unlocked. From my understanding, you could have 2 level 50 legacy and the one with the most unlocks is the one that you would have.

Imo they should just merge, if you have manhunter on one and loremaster on the other, you'll just have both on one. I mean you still earned it yourself so does it matter?
obviously I'm just here in my chair talking about stuff I have no idea about.

But still! I think that would have been nice.
Hairy Co-pilot.

read the faq: http://www.swtor.com/info/news/news-article/20171002

Quote:
Legacy Unlocks

Legacy unlocks are completely unaffected. If you have more than one Legacy, after the United Forces update, all your Legacy unlocks will be combined into one Legacy.
Quote:
Achievements

All completed Achievements will remain intact. If your Achievements are integrated during the United Forces update, the completed Achievements from both Legacies will be combined.

If you have an Achievement in progress, this will be unaffected by the update. If there are two Legacies which are being combined and they have the same Achievement in progress, the one with the higher progress will be retained.
