When LOTRO added rep systems, they retroactively applied rep points for missions completed. It's not impossible just because it's new, looks like they just didn't want to spend the time doing so.

Mindlessly repeating a small pool of old content is the only way to gain rep? Why? Are people at bioware/ea really sitting around a table thinking this is what players want?

Instead give us a multitude of options. Perhaps these groups need items crafted for them. Treasure hunts across the landscape to find artifacts. Thinning out populations of enemy mobs. 100% completion of planet map/quests. Pvp areas/arenas.

There are a ton of options for making this an interesting addition to the game, but instead its like you sat around thinking of the most boring way to implement rep.

Well, it does say: "Players can look forward to us adding more Reputation organizations in the future that will include new and familiar locations!"

So perhaps Tatooine and the Hutts will be in the future.

This. I finally dropped my WoW sub due to the insane reputation grind. It'd take nothing short of getting my own planet to incentivize this garbage. Would have been nice if they had spent the development time on something..... better.

Sorry to offend those who enjoy grind.

Something else to do at level 50 and not really required from what I can tell.

Sounds interesting enough.

I do hope some FP's and operations have the chance to drop rep items. Such as Battle of Ilum given Voss rep given the ending of that FP.

Agreed. Once again, "information" that raises more questions than it answers. Poorly written. It should have addressed if it would be retroactive. TBH, there is nothing in the write up presented that would make me go back and regrind old content. Titles? Oh boy! This is just another WoW clone "end game" solution. We grind reps in WoW now as the end game mechanic for gear, mounts, etc. This isn't new.

I agree, for getting to a certain point for rep is there something to purchase from a vendor say a speeder or new gear or modifications pieces??? if not I do not see my self purposely trying to get these reputations up.
] Looking for more to do at Endgame than just run OPS, or PVP for better gear, its getting a bit stale!
