I really enjoyed it as well. I want to see more quests that lead to new companions or unique gear.

Not sure what to say other than what has already been said. The mission was amazing, playing out like something out of the original KotOR games. I'd LOVE to see more missions like this added to the game, regardless of whether or not they are for special unlocks such as HK-51.

This ship part was kind of cool. It was pretty immersive the way they done it. However, the scan for parts was atrocious. Over 2 hours on Taris with 6 other people. It popped eventually in a spot that was scanned 100's of times already. DK was over a half hour with an entire raid. Jedi temple took me 5 minutes by myself and got lucky in Hoth when there were 5 people and it popped within 25 meters of the first scan.

I could only imagine this quest in say a month or so when people are doing it by themselves.

It's going to be impressive. We have our Update 1.2 coming in the next week and then after that it's going to continue to roll out month after month. It's exciting."

I don't know about time, I know it took only 3 people.

Theoretika was a brilliant quest. The dead ship was really spooky, it reminded me of Aliens or Event Horizon, the suspense was great. Also that frozen chamber at the end with all those HKs was just friggin amazing. It was nice to give the spacebar a break. I agree this was very similar to KOTOR quests and more in line with a RPG instead of a faceroller. More like this please BW,!
BTW ..to you guys saying "duhduhduh it took em a year to make this" ...Come on.... They first rolled out news about HK over the summer, so this has prolly been in the works since around then. And it's not like they haven't had a few other things on their plate during that time.

Absolutely loved the HK-51 quests. The Theoretika was awesome, the sounds were spooky LOL, my heart was beating hard as I thought it's going to fall apart in the time I was there. It was so exciting, so addicting, I want more...
I really hope BioWare will go in this direction with their quests. Win-win situation.
The "surprise" in one of the rooms on ship made me panic LOL.
Deep in the human unconscious is a pervasive need for a logical universe that makes sense. But the real universe is always one step beyond logic.

Awesome work!
It was very very good.

Have done it for 3 characters now and I just like the atmosphere of the station.

Kinda reminds me of under water base (Manaan) in KotOR1 as well (minus all the enemies of course)

I REALLY HOPE EA starts to put out bigger scale content with this type of setting and feeling to it.

This was a sign of better to come hopefully.

Also like the ramped up difficulty in Sector X.

Yes its soloable but its not a mindless cake walk like Black Hole or Ilum. There is actual challenge to do this content.

Hopefully thats ALSO a sign of things to come.

PS: LOVE LOVE LOVE the fact you actually need 4 people (not 2 people and 2 companions, not 3 people and 1 companion, not 1 person soloing it) to complete the FOUR man heroic. Thats how it should have been from day 1.

Sector X and everything attatched to it (including Theoretika) is well done and a huge step in the right direction for this game.

Yes im sure some will complain its again not handed to them with no challenge. Those types are destroying the RPG genre completely and developers need to start to ignore them.

In fact even the cartell shop not as bad as I thought it would be (with a couple exceptions)

This patch for PVE was a huge step forward
This patch for PVP was probably the final blow that kills pvp in this game.
Bad enough you had the expertise issue ion post 50 pvp but now you have pre 50s with expertise stacked up making it a gear grind > player skill as well.

And thats a true shame.

Great Job on PVE
Time to fire anyone related to PVP and bring in new people with a clue.
Housing brought me back
now add Paazaak, KotOR#1 swoop bike racing, and more flashpoints and planets

No but I am so gonna do that to a buddy LOL..

I did on my 1st 50 because I went back to get it before I left and clicked the console after I killed the beast. I clicked the console and saw it acting up thinking I was gonna fail or needed the solution for something else. So I ran back collected it came to console... Injected myself and enjoyed my slow death as Mako tried to keep me alive hahaha. Gave me a good laugh alone in my chair as I died.

Yea I love it.
