We'll likely never get a race that doesn't speak galactic basic since the class stories are all spoken in basic.

That's not true. All the player's dialogue could be substituted with huttese, growls or any of the other non-basic languages. There'd also be additional changes made to the romances but I guess anything to allow them as playable.

With Cathar, if it was to be purchasable in the Cartel Market, hopefully it's the same as currently with other species to F2P players and available automatically to subscribers.
If you'd like to see more Explorable Worlds in Star Wars: The Old Republic,
then head to this thread and discuss, list and vote which you'd like to see and explore in the game:

What's "Not true" about "not likely"? Bioware has explicitly stated as much. They want to keep the player character a basic speaking race. They paid good money for those voice actors and by god they're going to use them.

I didn't say they would remove the basic speaking voice acting from the game, it would remain for the basic speaking species and future ones there after. Just the non-basic speaking ones would have the dialogue substituted with non-basic.

Cathar are pretty much Bioware's baby, they are the ones that actually generated more interest in the species though Juhani than we really see in anything else.

though to be honest when it comes to feline species I would have loved getting a Kasa Horansi

Ive always thought " because there really is very little in the way of actual perks to one species over another that- to me are major" thought they should have lumped humanoids all into one group, and thrown in the Humans, Pantoran, Zeltron, Arkanian, Chiss so on and so forth into that then gone near human with your Togurta, iradonian, twi'lek, and so on, then non human where you may get the Kel-Dor, wookies duros and such
Sorry, I'm old and can only read complete words.

And Bioware said this isn't going to happen. The class stories are set and not likely changing.

Too bad they didn't sink a little more money into the voice acting so that not every player character of the same class/race/gender sounded identical to each other.

Having one voice works fine in a game like Mass Effect 2, but in a game like this they should have had the foresight to have voice sets to choose from so people teamed up didn't sound exactly the same if they had the same character setup. Every male human Jedi knight sounding exactly the same comes off as a bit cheap and unfinished when you consider the effort that went into the NPC voice acting.

It would be great if they fixed this in the future, but I'm not holding my breath.

seriously... you dont want to play as a "walking cat" but all of those seem perfectly viable to you?

The critera is:

1. is it basically a different coloured humaniod.

2. there is no 2.


Seriously there's GOT to be more people wanting to play Wookie(e)s than Cathar.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?
