It would be very nice if they went in and reworked these, but lets face it do you really think that will happen? What would be really fun if any of you are graphic designers is post a link of some models of your own that would be better. Lets see what the community can come up with.

I don't think many realistically expect the current Armor Models to change. Going forward though BioWare has clearly gotten the hint (at least I hope so) that they either need to hire a new art department or vastly step their games up.

People, the old lead concept artist, Arnie Jorgensen, has already left the game. He would have been the one responsible for the 1.2 armour designs. What say we wait for the next series of armour sets to come out before we start demanding people be fired?

Dear Bioware

The end gear designs are horrible. Please make your art team, go and watch all the Star Wars films.

Then get them to design gear, which looks like robes and armour from the Star Wars films!

BW fails at creating decent armor skins... They should have a public (player based) concept art contest for armor skins and give out IPADS or something and the results would be 10 times better. Not only that they would be able to fire their current armor design team and save loads of $--the turn around time would be much quicker as well. Too bad they don't listen to players...

I think they are not concerned about it because in 1.2, you can take the mods off and put it in ORANGE GEAR.

I don't mind that end game gear is ugly.

I prefer BioWare to invest in ORANGE GEAR.
This way, not every player will look the same and you can have a lot of orange gear to choose from. And you can convert normal gear to orange gear with crew skills.

I think it solves the problem.

So now, BioWare has to add new orange gear so we can have a geater variety and your looks will be pretty unique! (L)

Love the idea of promoting orange gear BioWare!

I love you!
...So you're saying that because BW is too lazy to design good looking end game gear we should be content with the limited amount of "decent" looking orange modable gear? What is wrong with this picture? Don't tell me that the numbheads running the show at BW were able to brain wash most of you into thinking they had our best interest at heart when they "gave" us more costume options via orange gear? Make no mistake that was just an attempt to plug a hole in the dam with one finger.

BW if you truely are reading feedback then take this and feed it back to your team:

Hey everyone, thank you to everyone who took the time to leave feedback. The development team are very aware of everyone's thoughts and we've particularly appreciated constructive comments which will always give us a better idea about how to change things in the game.

Wholesale changes to the armor sets in Game Update 1.2 are not possible at this time. Creating new armor sets is a process with a long lead time, so changes cannot be made quickly. However, we're listening to your feedback and that will influence things going forward. We would also urge you to look at the armor sets in-game. With the new color matching options available in Game Update 1.2 and higher resolution textures, some of you might be more impressed by armor sets in-game.

With that said, we'd like to make this discussion a bit more constructive moving forward. We understand some of you aren't fans of the armor sets as shown; that's fine, and we've heard you loud and clear. We've also heard the calls to make armor more 'iconic' and 'more Star Wars like' - and thanks to those of you who provided reference to your favorite armor styles.

We'd like to see more of that, so feel free to provide more constructive comments on what you feel your end game armor styles should look like for your class in The Old Republic.
