We aren't pilots on this game we are train drivers, please stop wasting time and money on this roller coaster nonsense and please give us 3D space with PvP.

X-Wing which was made 20 YEARS AGO is 20 years ahead of your current design.

Hmm I was expecting something a little more dramatic for the SSSP, but I guess you take what you can get after F2P.
I tell you this: though neither he nor they yet know it, he is the greatest of all the Jedi. Jacen Solo is the living Jedi dream. Even without the Force, he is more dangerous than you can possibly imagine."

Which do you mean by "Heroic": "what a hero does" or "SWTOR term for multiple players doing a mission as a group"?

Hope the second use makes it in the game before I finish the story.

For instance, a number of our missions will perform better on lower-end machines.
Yes! This makes me very happy! I'd like to be able to actually complete some of the space missions, but my machine just can't handle some of them and I've always been unable to clear a few them thanks to all the lag that I typically experience!

Performance improvements always make me smile!

No, there isnt.

Its also monumentally short sighted to assume because you like some then other people do as well, you can use the player finder to search space to see exactly how many people are doing these missions and the number isnt surprising, its just infinitesimal.

I dunno.

I used to do them a LOT, there was never many others doing them at the time.
Real Star Wars space combat please, not Star Wars Fox! Maybe some PvP and flight too?

I'm all for more space missions, but I'd rather we got "off the rails" and had more of an open space combat system.
(JtLS!!!) The missions are fun, but well, stuck on the rails is boring after the 6th, 7th 100+th time.

Hope they fix the Thunderclap bug, or you will wish you had another ship!

Are there any plans to offer a more tie fight style flight sim to the game.

By this I don't just mean 3d space which should have been in the moment space was discussed. But also quests and follow on missions where having completed a b and c it comes back in tour 5 or so and with cool effects such as joining the secret order of the emporer.

A game that came out in 1994 shows what could be done in an MMO today. And this would add much to the options once you hit level 50.

There is nothing "heroic" about any of the current space missions. Same will be said about the new ones. At the best, so-called space combat in this game is nothing more then a pretty arcade shooter. Might as well be "Space Aliens" or some other type of arcade game. Probably about the only thing about this game that really disappoints me is the current (and future) space game.


Give me an MMO that I can visit and have fun! Where what I pay for is not going to those that play for free.
