As title says, if they add in pod -racing, were you can win prizes, race other players, and upgrade your pods, and mess with them, beleive me, they will triple there subscribers easily.

Also space pvp, but pod racing would be alot easier to implement.

I agree. Give the masses somewhere else to go so I can quest and level in peace.

I've been wanting Podracing for a long time, more so than Swoop Biking. It really would be fricken awesome.

Pod racing or swoop racing would be interesting. While it's personally not my cup of tea, allowing players to spectate said races allows RP levels, so I would definitely be for that. However, I wouldn't say pod racing would triple subscriptions.

The racing genre and MMO genre of gaming aren't very connected, so diehard racing game fans are not MMO'ers. (More than likely).

Prizes would create an unbalance in PvE if prizes were gear: Those who were good at racing could magically kill things better, which doesn't make sense. However, if prizes were swoop bike upgrades, that'd be pretty cool.

I wouldn't even care if it was the same as the Kotor racing mini game, but swtor has the potential to add so much more. Imagine a Taris swoop race revival, would be awesome.

Agreed, if it were just prizes related to the racing that would be fine.

I wouldn't be surprised if this were to be....dare I say it....a world event for specific planets. Places like Taris, Tatooine, and maybe the lower levels of Nar Shaddaa in some corner of the map where the scum lurk.

Agree. If they do have something like this maybe rewards should be some xp, credits and coms for maybe a pod race vendor where you can buy upgrades for your pod like armour, speed enhancements, handleing mods. Who knows. it could be pretty neat.
