Right now ingame, is your player character even wearing the armor that is in your forum avatar? I very much doubt that. You picked the avatar so you must like it, so lets see what your player character is wearing ingame then.

Here's mine, show me yours. At lvl 50 I'm wearing Taris commendation & heroic quest gear, there's not a single piece of endgame gear in my possession in inventory or cargo hold cause I really just don't want it. I'll get it soon enough, but just so I can rip it's mods out & put them in my Taris armor set probably.

Or you're maybe just a huge supporter of BioWare, I don't know. More power to you.

That's the title. Now after reading that blatantly incorrect title, I did not feel the need to read the whole post. I assume it was a rant about how you and some others don't like the armor models.

Yeah, I'm not gonna try to claim that everyone hates it. I hate it. The people I personally know that play this game hate it. The gamers I know that don't play the game laughed at it. Most of the people posting comments on other forums hate it. BW (and you parachute pants enthusiasts) can do what you will with that info.

To be honest, aesthetics aren't why I play this game. Sure, I want a game that looks nice and runs well, but I don't place it so high on my affection for the game.

it's never wise to hurt the feelings of those who you are trying to convince, just saying

Guys, please calm down. While - yes - the OP is generalizing, it's actually a pretty valid assumption to make.

There are countless threads with people complaining about how bad the armor is in this game. Check out all the general threads, then head over to the class specific threads to see more of the same.

If you like it, good for you! I'm glad. I don't and based on the amount of threads that have popped up about it, I think I'm in the majority. Again, I could be wrong but I think there's a pretty loud cry against the armor in the game.

To answer the OP, I think Bioware thinks they are solving this with the whole "rip mods out of end game gear" but the bigger problem in my eyes is that yes, end game gear is horrible but there really isn't ANY gear that looks good in the game. Some of it is serviceable, for sure, but a lot of it isn't good.

Best thing to do to please everyone would be to simply add more armors in the game. Then those that like the current selections will be happy and those that don't can get different armor.

Because those who do like it or do not mind it have no reason to post about it. If you like, you'll just accept it and enjoy it, not try to convert everyone to liking it. So it is not a valid assumption.
