They should stop bothering making PvE gear or make it more appealing and stick only to the cartel market. It's just a waste of resources if they keep designing stuff so many players won't wear. And the cartel market gets better stuff anyway (looking at my Valiant armor)
some poeple like it by the looks of it. The point being the more the merrier. More choice. More options.

Eventually all armor pieces will be replaced by orange pieces because the content will be too easy and everybody will get these new armors.

Everybody have something = not special. It's a basic concept but for some reason the ppl dont understand it.

It still staggers me that with so much art in existence for Star Wars BW keep on thinking they can produce something better, is there a problem with hiring art designers who have seen a Star Wars film or played any Star Wars games, read any book, seen ANY art that's out there already.

Some likes it is correct, most people don't like the in game models. Who has ever seen pointy armor. Armor should go over your arms to protect you, not stick straight out. I think all of their designers should have been made to play the KOTOR games and watch the movies. They would have learned something. Darth Maul did not have pointy shoulder armor.

But truth be known, they do that so you end up spending money in the Cartel Market. All of my characters have CM armor because I can't stand the in game models. But EA/BW needs to learn something. You have 12 characters, you buy 12 sets of CM armor, then no more. I don't know many that would actually buy more slots than 12. That's a lot of characters to level to 50. I have spent a lot on CM stuff but I had some extra money to spare. Now, I'm not doing that. The GTN gets saturated and your cargo hold gets saturated so for them to really entice me into buying something new they have to give us something better. The adaptive armor I have on my characters will last them all the way to level 55.

Bioware also needs to retire stuff in their packs and not reuse them. Retiring them would give them more value. I have the throne but when I went to sell it on the GTN, there were at least 10 there or more. So I keep it in my cargo hold and wait.

The underworld force master set has a Kickass mask, I would actually prefer to run around in green and yellow pyjamas then wear this. The mercenary, and partisan warrior and inquisitor head armour is truly terrible.

I do really like the operative armour though.

Yeah they always had an issue with headgear and it looks like they are still taking the same route with silly helmets.

Something that also irks me is that generally speaking most of the armor sets in the lvl 10-50 bracket actually look better than the HL gear. I mean these armors should be the ones we are excited to get...

Thank the maker for that.

Look, I can understand some silly, over creative artist with a passion for pre-1950s, Buck Rodgers looks, but how do we excuse the developer that gave the approval for this stuff? LOL

Easily the worst excuse for armor that I've ever seen. Might want to clue the team in that its not about what the artist feels is new, inventive, or an expression of their creativity, but that we players have to wear this ****. LOL

Poorly done, and not something I would ever consider, except for the occasional chuckle during a guild meeting.
May the Schwartz be with you....
