Let me first start by saying I love this game.

Let me follow up with saying there is so much strangled potential here and it really is like gasping for breath in an ocean of disappointment.

A little dark, but its the potential I see that breaks my heart... this game could be everything we want it to be and more yet somehow, be it EA Bureaucracy, or something less obvious... its not.

When Lana breaks you out of Carbonite you're gathering fresh water when she says something that fits the relationship between EA and SWTOR perfectly.

"I don't think Arcann feels any desire to actually govern our portion of the galaxy; for now, he sees it as a backwater, useful only for resources."

Replace Arcann with EA. Replace govern with Develop. and Replace resources with The Cartel Market.

Again I love this game and I love Star Wars but its Tragic that it cant be more than what it is.

Hey folks,

We have seen a few questions about what is required in order to get these companions. Here are the requirements:
  • You must be the Class where the Companion was originally introduced. Ex: A Smuggler to get Risha.
  • You must have completed the KOTET story. The reason for this requirement is that the story of these Companions takes place after the events of KOTET.
We know there has been interest in players being able to acquire Companions outside of these restrictions, such as through the Companion Locator Terminal. Although that is not something we can do quickly, the team is absolutely aware of the feedback.

Hope that clears up any confusion.

This is interesting: KotET must be completed but the character doesn't have to be fully advanced through the Iokath/Traitor storyline. So, in a sense, characters whose players didn't advance them as far get to have their companions return "sooner."

That sucks though because I'm not running my Smuggler through KOTET. One or two characters is enough. So even if I've started the Iokath storyline I still can't do these?

What happens if we already have Corso from the Companion terminal? Will that Corso be replaced?

If it's like anything previously, they'll just be swapped. My Elara and Jorgan just appeared naked one day prior to their quests, so I assume it'll work like that did.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

I'd like to know about this, too. I'm in the same boat. I have run two characters through everything current. I have a third that I started KotET with ages ago and just don't want to finish. Then there are those that I haven't started KotET with yet. That includes the ones getting companions this time.

I wish they wouldn't hold everything hostage with KotFE/ET. It's a terrible story, especially if you've run it once or twice already. We just want to run different content, right?

This is a stupid corner they've painted themselves into. They started giving all companions to everyone and we got used to it and ignored some characters because we "knew" the companions would be available on other characters that we play. But now they've gone and changed direction yet again, which puts us in the terrible position of choosing whether or not to play content we hate just to get companions back.

Not cool.
