  • a4 black

    well..at least its free, so…yay?

  • Florent

    It’s a joke. It has to be a joke..

  • CrumpetTrumpet

    Thanks for the chest piece!

  • Whew, that’s bad.

  • Zeus Fagervold

    Rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrreskin!

    • Drivan

      Like a Mo-Fo!

  • Dr. Mike Wendell

    The helmet reminds me of some Warhammer 40k stuff I’ve seen.

  • John Campbell

    Well, as the saying goes. Free shit, is still shit.

  • Darth Ji’inx

    Note: Armor is BoP, but unlocks in Collections for 1 CC. 🙂

    • Jonathan Parker

      Wish they would do that for all the other promotion armors. The old glowing flight suits, the Dark vs Light armor rewards, stuff like that.

      • Darth Ji’inx

        Same.

        I think the reason they are not is because those items aren’t granted by redeeming codes like this new armor, the HK-55 items, and cantina mounts are.

        • Jonathan Parker

          The HK-55 stuff was all from subscriber bonuses though, right? I’m not sure, but it seems kinda weird that some of the best stuff, like the Victorious Titan armor, is not only nonredeemable after deleted, but is bound to the character that picks it up. I could easily make a new character to get some of the old legacy bound stuff, but once the others are gone, they’re gone for good.

          • Darth Ji’inx

            Oh, you’re right about HK-55 stuff. But it was still promotional. I’m assuming that Nico’s promo gear isn’t in Collections because it’s BtL.

            What’s different about the DvL rewards is that they are non-promotional items that are granted at a later time based on achievement progress. Even so, that doesn’t mean I’m against them being added to Collections or all the armor sets and Titan mount being BtL.

            I’m pretty sure that the Victorious Pioneer set and the Victor’s Trailblazer mount can’t be added to Collections because they are BtL, and the Pioneer set also includes mods. For consistency, it would be best to make the Titan mount, Titan armor, and Trailblazer armor BtL. Unfortunately, these items came out over a year ago, meaning they’re probably not considered relevant by BW anymore. :/

            • Jonathan Parker

              Yeah, it’s a weird and arbitrary system. It seems like one hand of their team doesn’t know what the other is doing. Ever since they put in the Legacy system with all the Legacy-bound stuff, it’s been a toss in the air as to what is included in it or not. Some armor is BoL, some is BoP with no explanation as to why. We got companion summon while moving for free, but mounting while moving for millions of credits. It’s never made much sense to me, but that’s SWTOR for you.

    • thatHARVguy

      It’s mailed to ALL your characters and is reclaimable from Collections.

      • Darth Ji’inx

        Yes.

  • Drivan

    Nothing says, “please move on to something else,” like a developer promoting a different game in their own game…
    Wow, just wow…

    Oh and the armor is but ugly and doesn’t look like teh inferno squad armor from BF2.

    • Ben Gimson

      Same company so it’s not that surprising (and it’s EA; let’s face it they don’t care about TOR, it’s just there to print free money for them), just wish they’d actually made the armour from Battlefront instead of whatever that^ is supposed to be.

      • AbnerDoon

        It’s pretty much a recolor of one of the four legacy pilot sets that they gave away. They may have mixed and matched them a bit and slapped on some flair.

        • Ben Gimson

          I know, I was just getting at the fact it looks nothing like anything from Battlefront. It’s a shame, too, as the Battlefront gear is pretty much a TIE pilot outfit, which would be awesome to have in swtor.

          At this point in the game, they should really just start adding outfits from elsewhere (Vader’s suit, Palpatine’s robes, Outfits from TFU etc). Swtor is non-canon now anyway, and given what they’ve been producing of late we’d get better looking gear if they just copied stuff from other SW media.

          Plus they’d make even more money. We know they like money 😛

          • Paulo Gomes

            Oh man, stuff from “The Force Unleashed” would be sick! I would go as far as breaking my CM boycott to get that hehehehe…

            The first game has some VERY cool Sith outfits, and the second one has, imo, the best looking Jedi armor I have set my eyes upon.

          • AbnerDoon

            I think the person(s) who does the copying is the problem. They seem to always be in the grab existing set as base frame of mind.

            A. Add Shoulderpads
            B. Add Cape
            C. Add Giant Cuffs on gloves or boots
            D. Add Buttflap on pants or coat
            E. Add Hood so character is ridiculously bald
            F. Change Color

            • Ben Gimson

              Wouldn’t mind so much if they put good bits together to make something cool, but they always seem to reuse questionable components.

              And they don’t seem to use the decent hood at all anymore. It’s always, as you say, the ‘ridiculously bald’ hood. Tis why my main is a Twi’lek :’)

      • Drivan

        Same company, yes, but I can’t say that I have seen Bethesda promote ESO in Fall out 4 or vice versa. Other than back in the day when Boiware released Dragon’s age and Mass Effect close together and gave us special armor for buying both games I can’t remember any other cross promotions. I certainly can remember one where a studio like Dice got their game their game promoted by another studio…

        • Ben Gimson

          Eh, tbh I don’t really see it as an issue. I know Trion do a similar thing with their games, and can you really blame them? Captive audience and a reward for players. I hate EA but other than the shitty quality of the armour I really don’t have an issue with them advertising their own games.

  • Adam Haynes

    Sick… maybe I’ll actually be able to log on by the time this promotion ends. So far my game crashes on load since the merge and customer service has been completely useless. They don’t seem to grasp the concept that nothing has changed on my system but everything has on theirs. BioFail at its best.

    • Sozinho

      You don’t need to log using the launcher, just use the link provided in the first step. 👍🏻

      • Adam Haynes

        Hahaha

  • Sadriel_Fett

    As always, thanks for the heads up, Dulfy.

  • Fred Garvin

    “The custom-reskinned Special Forcers Armor provides…”

    Fixed it.

  • Fred Garvin

    This is cross-promotion, right? What’s going on in BF II to remind people about SWTOR?

    • Snarf

      If its like the previous BF, there is a little card in the box telling people to go redeem the armor code in SWTOR.
      But the last BF was so disappointing, I dont really care.

    • Annatar

      Actually, there are SWTOR music tracks in Battelfront II, and that’s pretty good, considering music in SWTOR is really good (more precisely they used the republic soldier’s music)

    • Shawn Hargrave

      Lool

    • Drivan

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
      They don’t want people to remember SWTOR at this point…

      • Fred Garvin

        “And if you like the micro-transactions in BF2 try our other game where you can play Barbie dream house with gambling loot crates! Like Han Solo said: I’m only in this for the money!”

  • Jonathan Parker

    Cool, at least it’s a free reskin promotion instead of a Cartel Market reskin. I might actually use this as something like a pilot outfit for my Agent. Still wondering what the hell these “special forces” are after watching the first couple missions of the Battlefront EA 2. Pilots? Infantry? Imperial Agents? What the hell do they even do running around dressed in TIE Fighter flight suits? Anyway, thanks Bioware!

    • thatHARVguy

      Much like the marine/pilots in Space: Above and Beyond.

      • Jonathan Parker

        And I loved that (thank you for reminding me, need to watch that again), but with Imperial special forces, it makes no sense. TIE Fighters (and their pilots, frankly) are expendable. Their infantry is expendable. Hell, even their fleet officers are expendable to some extent. Why the hell would you put someone like this in those roles? They should be taking on the role of Imperial Agents, not commandos and pilots. Stealth, recon, infiltration, not front line fighting and starfighter deployment.

  • Snarf

    A free imperial clownsuit! perfect for Quinn!

  • gumn

    Let’s call it the “I pissed my pants armor”…

    • Deshik

      “in space”

  • GSF4Lyfe

    What the hell is that?! At first, i didn’t scroll down and look at the photo, and expected it to be something big, bulky and looking similar to trooper armor because, ya know, they are actually special forces in the story. Havoc squad, all that. That looks like an officer uniform with GSF pilot gear slapped on it. Hilarious and pathetic. It’s also nothing like any armor in battlefront 2.

    Also, this is not even something you would see special forces imperial NPCs wear in the actual swtor game. What were they thinking?

  • ConcernedGuest

    The armor has some slight similarities with the armor seen in BF2 on that girl trooper.

    But if all that BW can do is to create one more reskin of an armor reskinned so much times over instead of creating a new 3d model for an armor … how bad must the situation be.
    Look what they did in the past like for ME2 … made the DA:O armor for Shepard and made it sooo good.
    But BW today just seems to be a moldering carcase living some kind of lichdom sustaining itself from its glorious days of old.

    Oh if just the phylactery of this lich could be found and destroyed, putting it to rest and granting it eternal peace

  • ZestyM8

    Looks like ass.

  • Alexander Delorean

    This armor is crap xD couldnt do more interestin? Sure! They just love reskin stuff.

    • Sabretooth

      100 trillion credits and then i’ll think about wearing……that…thing.

  • Donald

    well..at least its free, so…yay?

  • Syok

    …that’s reskinned Imperial Pilot/Ace armor which we got with GSF launch. GG.

  • Mr. Wednesday

    As old Uncle Owen would say, “Don’t look a gift speeder in the mouth”

  • Csaba Polgár

  • Sabretooth

    ugly!

  • It doesn’t even look like any armor in BFII… It’s ugly !

    • Harald Har

      You know BioWare.
      It has to be bashed together from existing (ugly) armor without any effort.

  • Yevhen Snizhko

    You also get a shareable link to give this set to up to 3 friends (reddemed just now and it expires on March 31 2018, and here’s mine: http://www.swtor.com/user/ce/3roz16

    This armor is shit but a friend finds the garbage great #HASHTAG KEIN GESCHMACK BÄÄÄÄM

  • eFFF F:

    If I did google correctly…
    this is how it looks in the other game:

    LELZ!

    I guess it’s “the quality we deserve”, because BioWare hates it’s playerbase. They successfully got rid of their Mass Effect blayerbase, but Star Wars fans are a bit more stubborn, but they try it very hard, since 2012, with some success.

  • &

    If you have no talent, hate your job and hate the game you are working for, this is the result of your work.

    @BioWare Art Team: Please leave the SWTOR team, leave BioWare, leave EA! Please! There are jobs that fit to your abilities, like working for Microsoft Exel.

  • Dan Santos

    If this shit was at least BLACK it would be useable. Why in the hell they have this fetish for coloring original black stuff with this ugly faded gray?

    • Little Flame

      There’s dyes for a reason yknow.

  • Ugly, i think someone desperate will wear this armor ;_;

  • Don Loco
  • Sam Sarvour

    Wow! A whole 10 days to get it! BaZinga!
    I also better scrounge up some ‘disposable income’ for BFII…

  • Kubrickian

    They could’ve knocked this out of the park if they used the Imperial NPC’s helmet that only exists on Balmorra when playing pubside. It’s a forerunner to the current Imp pilot. So what do they do? They give it a smuggler helmet. Sad that the five remaining employees don’t really know the finer details of Star Wars.

  • Jin

    What the F**k is that? xDDDDDDDDDD

  • Paulo Gomes
    • AbnerDoon

      They are going to beat SW like a dead horse. We will have two paths it will go like Marvel and we will have some great movies and some alright. Or it will go like DC and we’ll have some alright and the rest will be who lets them keep making this crap?

      • Tim

        I swear if its KOTOR themed and they change the cast to “meet a quota” I will ugh.

      • Tim

        EA and KK are destroying Star wars.

        • HMH

          Ya totally, everyone knows KK’s track record as an executive producer is a bunch of failed projects and box office losers.

          • Fred Garvin

            IKR? Only 2 Best Picture wins out of 5 nominations, merely #4 in box office by producer with about $7 billion…if she was worth a damn she’d crack the top 3.

            • Wagner schmit

              Not really hard when you relay on nostalgic blind fanboys to get money. Are you one of those ohh i’m sorry? Reminds me of the people who still pay for SWTOR.
              Dave Finoi would do a way job.

              • Fred Garvin

                What the fuck are you rambling about? The relevance is clear because of what I was responding to which was a tongue-in-cheek response to an asshat who is shitting all over the place with his masculinity crisis problems. I never said KK was immune to criticism and I’ll be first in line to criticize her as soon as there’s a good reason. I didn’t think TFA or R1 were great but nothing that’s been produced since she took over is anywhere near the shit fest of the prequels and comparing her to Lucas is apples and oranges. Lucas deserves a harsher eye because he created the franchise, and then produced, directed, and wrote the prequel shit fest personally (and you should look to prequel defenders for the nostalgic blind fanboys.) It was all on him and he fucked it up and now whines and pouts like a baby after cashing a multi-billion dollar check.

                Also, nothing you said invalidates anything I said at all. Though I’m sure you went and rubbed one out at your self-perceived wit.

              • Leonardo Watch

                What the fuck are you rambling about? I keep asking that every time I am reading your bullshit.

          • Wagner schmit

            She is a failure at hiring the right people so yea he has a point. Countless director issues all revolve around her.

            • HMH

              Ya you’re right, must suck to pump out blockbusters with big name directors.

              ‘Countless’ director issues? Get back to me when you learn not to confuse and conflate your news.

              • Leonardo Watch

                So, Colin Trevorrow has been removed as director of Star Wars Episode IX ahead of the film’s early-2018 production. These sort of headlines may be familiar to you as just three months ago we were reporting on the removal of Phil Lord and Chris Miller from Han Solo, swiftly replaced with the social-savvy Ron Howard. And Josh Trank was ousted from the Boba Fett film weeks before a showreel was set to premiere at Celebration. And all that’s ignoring the fact Michael Arndt was replaced on screenwriting duties by safe hand Lawrence Kasdan and Jack Thorne has already taken on Episode IX scripting.
                I think you like to be blind to news.

              • HMH

                Are these the first movies you’ve ever payed attention to in pre-
                production?

          • Wagner schmit

            “KK’s track record as an executive producer” there you said it she is a good executive producer and not good at anything not used to especially running a company.

        • Fred Garvin
      • John Kosto

        I hate the Marvel movies. I really hope they don’t produce a bunch of copies of the same movie with the same plot and 100 cliches per movie, like they did with the MCU. Star Wars deserves much better.

        • HMH

          You must have never read Marvel comics as a kid.

          • John Kosto

            I haven’t, and if the novels are like the movies, then I am glad that I haven’t.

            • HMH

              Kids movies from kids books.

              • John Kosto

                From kid directors, with childish humor, and non-existent plot you mean 😛

              • HMH

                Nope, adults make kids stuff too, there are no kid directors.

                My point is these movies are for kids, they are adaptions of comic characters and themes meant for children made into PG movies. We have two 12 year olds in my house, I take them to see them, they think they’re great, we have a pretty good time. I wouldn’t recommend any of them to an adult off the top of my head, they did make one without the comedic elements- Winter Soldier, I’m sure you wouldn’t like it as well.

    • Tim

      Making a live action tv shows also. I can already guess the main character will be a female since everything lately has to have female push from comics to the movies.

      • Fred Garvin

        Awww….someone’s afraid of girls. Poor baby. The previous decades of nothing but a male push in those areas didn’t sate your hunger for men? Such a little snowflake.

        • TheCulprit

          you are insufferable

        • Wagner schmit

          Aww because most of the time turns out to be trash like the new star trek show and the new marvel in comics face facts.
          If you are alright with cheap new character that are rehashes or garbage and cheap carbon copies alright with you I guess but some have taste.

          • Fred Garvin

            And another little boy who holds his dick and cries himself to sleep at night over male oppression reveals himself.

            There’s nothing to notice except his blatant feelings of being threatened simply because a female has been cast in a role about sci-fi space wizards. It has zero to do with quality of content and don’t try and pretend it does.

            • Leonardo Watch
            • Leonardo Watch

              Except when PoC are threatened when the main character is not a diversity cast and make troll accounts over it.

            • Leifer

              Sci fi space wizards based on ancient Japan. It does if you cast someone by the color and gender for the role instead of talent or their quality. I have seen it with my own eyes and people clearly stating they should hire someone by their gender or color just to write a book (even singing PENTIONS to do this) and I am sure it’s happening in the movie industry.

              • Paulo Gomes

                Talent??? You’re bringing talent into this? Is Mark Hamill a very talented actor? Does he have a tremendous career in film, like Harrison Ford? Hey, I love Mark Hamill, but he’s no Al Pacino…

                And what about Hayden Christensen? Oh boy, that’s a load of talent right there…

                But they have dicks, right? So they must be good.

                At the very least, better than women, with their dangerous vaginas, right???

                You may need professional help mate. Just sayin’…

              • HMH

                Did you see Mark flex his chops in Corvette Summer?

              • Paulo Gomes

                Wow! Oscar material right there…

              • Fred Garvin

                What does ancient Japan have to do with this?

                So no white male actor has ever been cast for his look instead of his talent or quality? LOL

      • Naq

        Ugh, women, amirite? Gross. With their vaginas everywhere. Its like “Hey, what does a guy need to do to get some dicks around here?” All we want is rippling muscled and well oiled men, rubbing all over each other, breath heaving and testosterone gushing from every sweaty pore as they grapple, and struggle against each other. No homo.

        • Wagner schmit

          One in EA video game, two brand news ones in the comics, and a female majority cartoon, and the main focus in the movie is the female protagonist. Yeppe!
          You do understand the concept of balance right? There has been a lacking of brand new male characters in the comics and video games.

          • Naq

            So. 6 Star Wars motion pictures with a male lead character. Two had the audacity to feature what incels like you call “females”. Disgusting and imbalanced. Cartoons we have Ewoks, Droids, Clone Wars, The clone wars and Rebels, all male leads, but they have the fucking audacity to ram a new series of animated shorts targeted at little girls down our throats in the form of Forces of Destiny? Repre-fucking-hensible. But the icing on this dubious cake, saturated in male oppression, has to be video games, for all the Kyle Katarns, Republic Commandos, Dash Rendars, and Star Killers, these monsters started to let people choose their sex in games(edit: like Kotor, L2read). Abominations! But they weren’t done there, no, they had to push their heretical agenda and finally force everyone to play a female in the latest Battlefront.

            Doesn’t anyone care about balance anymore? What about the balance? Muh balance!

            Moron…

            • Wagner schmit

              Too bad you had to respond to personal insult because you cannot debate in mature fashion. Many males don’t like playing female characters because they would be accused of looking at their butt first of all or doing nasty things and females vice verse. Many males just don’t like playing opposite gender and many have come accustomed to having two choices of playing female or male making it only male or female at this point seems going back into a step it might been for agenda alone or cheapskates. Why you leave out KOTOR?
              Dave Finoni is the reason for clone wars and rebels being the way they are don’t give you know who credit there was influence of coarse but didn’t have total control because Dave is a favorite of Lucas and had more freedom to do what he does best.
              Kyle katarn, KOTOR, star killers continuity was deleted I wonder if that person had an impact on it.
              Ewoks and droids really using those two cartoons as an argument?

              • Naq

                Sorry you are going to have to suffer the trauma of being accused of looking at a woman’s behind. That is totally a thing that happens all the time when men are forced to endure the indignity of playing a female in a video game… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9f6dcfbd4837f6b591076ac4d7424aa4d45af400defde7a6774a921113a00d0b.png

              • Wagner schmit

                Gamergate would of not happened if it was totally not a thing. I have never ever played as a female character and never will and if the game is real good will watch it online on a youtube channel.

              • Naq
              • Wagner schmit

                I love the bunny meme)))

              • Victor

              • Paulo Gomes

                This is all wrong. This is not the issue. The REAL issue is the quality of the films, not if they’re led by females.

                Rey doesn’t have a story arc? Well, she has as much as Luke did in ANH. In fact, that’s the kind of criticism I would take and discuss: was TFA a bit too close to ANH.

                Do that exercise: go back, watch the first movie like it’s the first time you watched it. And then gimme your empty arguments about story arcs.

                We’ve had 40 years to analyse Star Wars since it began. FORTY YEARS! And people are already saying Disney is screwing up SW with SJW, female protagonists, marketing, movie overkill and whatnot. Gimme a fucking break. We’ve had TWO movies under Disney, and already they are the scum of the Earth.

                I’ll tell you what’s REALLY wrong: George Lucas. HE dropped the ball. He sold his empire to the slavers, as he so aptly named them in an interview, after Disney told him to stfu about his ideas about the new trilogy. Figures: a guy cashes in a multi-billion dollar check, but he still has a say on what the buyers should do.

                So don’t take it out on Disney. Take it out on the real culprit here: the one and only George Lucas himself. An ok director that had ONE single great idea – Star Wars. And threw a tantrum because the Prequels were not has well received as he thought they would be, because people don’t “understand him”…

                Go pout in your little corner George… The grown-ups are making movies…

              • Naq

                These videos use tainted truth though to program their target audience. The debaters, and the tally takers. For the most part, we all know Star Wars was not diverse, but its a sci fi epic with tons of aliens so most of us don’t really bring it up. Normal people don’t keep count of these things, because it isn’t our primary concern. The ones who do seem to go down the checklists are normally on one extreme or the other, and they are people who’s opinions should be taken with a grain of salt, because they normally have an agenda.

                Star Wars(original trilogy) had one woman who was characterized. Mon mothma, dancing girls and Sy Snoodles do not count. There was One. Billy Dee was one black guy. That isn’t diversity, and we all know they could have done better, but we don’t let it ruin the movies for us. But when I hear someone spout off that Star Wars was always diverse I know they have an agenda, and I bet this guy has some interesting videos about his vidya games and comics being ruined by minorities and vaginas, its a shame there is a demographic for this crap.

              • Paulo Gomes

                Sorry to butt in (pun intended), but I come from a generation of gamers that went crazy over Lara Croft. The gaming Lara croft, not the movie persona. Although we didn’t stare at her bottom, other parts of her anatomy were more prominent…

                But yeah, at 26 toons most of my toons are female. I guess it’s the only time I get to stare at a female bottom and not have my wife give me the look of eminent death. To each his own, and I think all this gender talk is a non-issue. Why shouldn’t there be more female protagonists? I welcome that. Not because of some unwritten clause, but because there should be. It’s the 21 century, after all…

              • Leifer

                Compare the female protagonist only to male protagonist only games. Not as big isn’t it? The market for it is more limited like it or not and not as profitable as two gender choices or male protagonist. If you want to buy a female protagonist with no other gender choice good for you I won’t because I just don’t float that way. The point still stands the motive for female character is ones own personal beliefs not the fanbase and has more then likely broken it even further and caused more trolls on both sides.
                But this comment section has gone way off track mostly because of naq not respecting someone opinion and rather mock it.

              • Naq

                Did you read anything you just fucking wrote? You don’t see yourself implying that one female protagonist in a video game is going to break it? So…not the lootbox economy? Holy shit this place has gone fucking nuts since I left…

              • Leifer

                No it SELLS less then one that has both options. Did you read what I said?

              • Naq

                “More than likely broken it even further”
                Backpedal harder.

              • Leifer

                Kathreen kennedy broke the community and Disney not me. I didn’t erase tons of history just to milk money out of the franchise and shove a shameless personal ideal into it and make it less magical.

              • Naq

                I’m gonna be honest, I don’t normally care about this topic. I’ve played video games since before most of the dumb shits crying about girls in their precious games were born, mostly playing a male character because there werent other options, and not complaining and bitching about it like it was the damned video game apocalypse.

                It wasn’t until games like Diablo, and mmos where you had any choice, and I was pretty happy with that. But I get that not every game can afford to pay voice actors and their artists to do male and female options, or maybe that just isn’t in their stories, so I take things as they come and don’t whine every time I have to play a game from the perspective of the opposite sex, because it is rarely a factor. Its not like this new Battlefront is going to have missions where you have to clutch your pearls while you shop for space tampons.

                I think Anita Sarkesian just wants attention, and I don’t like someone trying to represent me, and then if I don’t agree with them telling me I am internalizing my misogyny. But as much as I don’t like her, I find the little pukes that come around pretending they want balance, or wise monetary decisions, “making things less magical” when they really mean they want things back to the nearly male exclusive status quo of yesterday to be down right Insidious. Especially when they come crawling out of the woodwork in numbers like fucking cockroachs.

                We aren’t here to debate you. We are here to laugh at you. Because your opinion means jack all to the rest of us. You are wrong. Go fuck yourself.

              • Paulo Gomes

                That’s because your opinion is not worthy of respect.

                I’m really amazed at how someone, after the turn of the century, can still think like you do.

                You don’t “float” that way? What is that supposed to mean? I don’t look at a game on the basis of gender. I look at a game to see if it is GOOD. “Tomb Raider” being a very good example. I played all the TR games. And I guarantee you, I did not go to bed doubting if somewhere underneath my consciousness I wanted to be a woman! I’m perfectly in tune with my sexual orientation. And if I wasn’t, that would be cool too! But a game is not a game changer for that. Pun intended again.

                The world is a’changin’ mate. Yes, we’re getting more women in films, games, music, politics and whatnot. And I welcome that. The more the merrier. Let’s judge people on basis of merit, rather than gender. Or race. Or whatever.

              • Naq

                You need to be more careful playing Tomb Raider. You might catch Transgender through the controller! :O

                (cannot stop laughing)

              • Leifer

                Or accused of buying for eye candy that a classic one for the SJWS, I seen them say it on there sites they are scared of going on SWTOR and etc because the males players dress the female characters up as sexy slaves and dance and I know they play SWTOR because they bring up the server they used to go on. Then they label the entire players as sexist toxic perverts. For the people who don’t think SJWS play MMOs well you are wrong they feel threatened when they go on them as well. So go fish.

              • gua543

                Sorry mate, but unless you provide some source behind your claims that many males don’t like this and that, I’m calling BS on what you wrote. Also, a couple of loud SJWs on tumblr and self-proclaimed media sites don’t represent the female part of the gamer community (doubt they even play anything but mobile games). Quite the contrary, actually.

              • Leifer

                Rethink that since entire sites filled with them reviewing overwatch and promoting it as the dream future female game. Sites like Mary Sue and others.

              • gua543

                We are talking about the Overwatch that got in the sight of “feminists” because 80% of the female characters are oversexualized? Seems to me you are just reading one end of the spectrum and ignoring the other. And forgetting there’s a whole lot between those two extremes.

          • HMH

            I just want you to know- It gets better.

            • Leifer

              It gets better after shameless milking year after year of films and with merchandise. Star wars used to be generational now not anymore. Maybe they should milk it until they can’t profit from it.

              • HMH

                Lucasfilm and Star Wars created modern film merchandising exploiting every licensed product they could just to make a buck, this edge lord view that it used to be pure and somehow this new stuff is tainting it only becomes more laughable when you bring up merchandising.

              • Paulo Gomes

                Looool… You are SO right. I mean, it was ok when George did it. But NOW it’s evil incarnate, because someone else is doing it. Shame! Shame!

                *Queue the GoT memes bellow pls*

        • Paulo Gomes

          Omg! I don’t know if I find this comment amusing or repulsive… Muscled and well oiled men, rubbing all over each other… Loooooool!

        • gog

          Something like this but even more manly 80s action movie homoerotic?

    • HMH

      Sounds good to me, every other franchise I’ve ever been a fan of has been beat to death and Star Wars has always only been a trickle. Lets see it. I hope some of it is good.

    • gua543

      Quite frankly, if they respect the lore (which is more or less a clean board now, but still) and the characters are not there just so that the movie doesn’t get labeled as sexist/racist, I don’t mind. Say whatever you want about the Marvel movies, but they are fun to watch.

      I think the movies about Star Wars are one of the worst parts about it, ranking just above the Dark Empire stuff, 2 Clone Wars novels that were just too weird and maybe some post-RoTJ novels, when the timeline gets something around 20+ years, still haven’t gotten the chance to read the books about it. Getting more stuff like Rogue One, where the story is not the usual “The brave hero faces the evil villain, with the fate of the galaxy being at stake” theme, is not a bad thing in my book.

    • Risqu’e

      Ive felt for quite some time they need to leave the Skywalker family alone going forward, as well as get out of their timeline of deathstars etc.
      But I also feel that they are pumping out movies too fast to keep them high quality. Multiple directors have gotten the boot due to clashing with KK. The originals were 3 years apart. No one complained about that.

    • Shawn Hargrave

      Hopefully old republic (kotor) movies

      • 平賀才人

        I don’t mind what era they desire to do while JJAashole is not involved in it.

    • Fred Garvin
    • 平賀才人

      I doubt they do old republic era, I dont know if it should’nt be related to the skywalkers maybe a Pre Episode I around young obi wan or something about darth bane? These asholes just keep finding ways to dissapoint me so most probably that or some shit like that.

    • Ben Gimson

      Not very surprising. Think we all knew, deep down, that Disney were going to milk SW until it makes us sick to look at. Generic, lowest common denominator stuff will keep pouring out of them every year for decades to come.

  • cole flynn

    Thanks for the chest piece!

    Currently preloading BFII

  • Shawn Hargrave

    Just fyi i was in bf2 beta it has god aweful microtransactions and loot crate progression other then that its not bad

    • Risqu’e

      Seems all EA games are that way these days….

  • Vakarian

    BF is a pay to Win, Micro transaction bullshit of a game no thanks

    • Dr-Waffle The-Third

      isn’t that what SWTOR is? besides the pay to win?(somewhat)

      • RenneganZerg

        Well its more like Pay to Costume, since a LOT of costumes/armors are from the Cartel Market and either require you to grind or pay money up front. Personally I rather just get rid of the loot boxes and just pay the armor up front, since I would rather pay like $10-15 on the armor than to just open like $40+ in loot boxes hoping I get the entire set, since basically there is now like only 1-2 original armor sets that comes out every 4-6 weeks and others are just filler. For someone who basically has like 80% of the armor sets from the game from (Mostly) grinding the GTN, I really hate reskins that before I had to pay like 20m+ or like wait a year and get the silver version for like 2m.

  • darkrobin

    well the only nice thing about it, its free but other then that its godawfull ugly.

    • 平賀才人

      well its just a reskin of the Battle Ace armor you see every lowball running around with on starter planets.

      • Indeed it is

      • Little Flame

        Not entirely. The chestpiece is that of the actual Imperial Pilot, which takes a shitton of grinding to get if you dont have the cartel market version. So I’m actually happy to get a cheap imp pilot chestpiece. For the helmet I personally think it would’ve been better to stick with the actual imperial pilot helmet from the swtor era rather than re-use the shitty attempt at a GCW era pilot helmet

  • Dr-Waffle The-Third

    doesnt this armor arleady exist? Fuck you bioware lol

    • Whitedragon
    • LoL color swap

    • Leah

      this one comes with a little drone showing up when you draw your weapons 😛

      • Dr-Waffle The-Third

        Oh, sweet, so it’s basically an ENTIRE NEW ARMOR SET FUCK YEAH LOOPHOLE BIOWARE HAHA

        • Leah

          not the first time they did it. i mean. there are multiple very slight recolors of lore armors that are silver quality and easier to get, but more or less the same thing. the closest that comes to mind is Mira’s armor. and then there’s sith recluse.. my god, I made a LOT of credits of those pieces and its essentially cartel version of in game dropped sith armor…. but with a drone!

          at least this set is free

  • Louis Brogan

    more content plz….

  • Naq

    This is pretty shameful. Its like they were instructed to play nice and make something, and they had someone bang out a skin in 1 hour over their lunchbreak to blow it off. Customer appreciation at its finest. For contrast, here is an armor set I was lucky enough to have screenshotted that I had put together to RP as an imperial pilot for one night. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/19dbbc2e93f8eabef679789faf8a93aae613c0f055311ca63d3fd074cc34d7ff.jpg
    I had someone ask me what I used to play before ESO, and I hesitated to say Swtor because I was embarrassed.

    • Fallen

      Why if you like the game when you played it who cares what others think

    • MKDAWUSS

      Replace the helm with the Dread Seed Reputation helm and you’d have something that resembles the BFII armor more than the one provided.

      • Naq

        I think the only reason I used this helmet was because it had the exact same semigloss as the chestplate(and looks badass), but for looks that dread seed rep helmet would be as close as you can get, with no effort on the part of a dev outside of knowing their own existing resources.

    • michael fearless

      I’m sure EA told Bioware they had to promote this other ( far better and more popular ) game, and Bioware was obviously flattered to promote this other studios work while getting no kind of promotion themselves and were totally like “yeah, watch us go, zoom, lets get rid of even more of our players lol”. They aren’t even really all that hyped about their own game – I wouldn’t expect them to be terribly excited about helping the competition that’s beating them already.

      That said, it’s not a terrible armor set – and the little droid summon is fun. Putting a black/dark red dye on it helps a lot too.

      • RenneganZerg

        It’s not Terrible looking, I mean it is MUCH more better than some pieces from the Cartel Market, and it IS free so it can be useful at some point.

    • RenneganZerg

      RIP, I cannot stand ESO (In my opinion) just because it doesn’t have that Morrowind/Oblivion/Skyrim Feeling to it, like its a worse Elder Scrolls game that doesn’t amaze me like the previous Elder Scrolls. But hey, we all play our own games. Its not about the Game you play, its how much fun you’re having with that game that what counts.

  • HMH
    • gua543

      Here’s hoping EA didn’t completely forget 1313.

      • HMH

        I lost interest in 1313 when they changed the protagonist from some nobody rent-a-cop to Boba Fett, a seedy detective story set in the SW underworld had a lot of promise. A shoot ’em up with Boba Fett further demystifying and compromising the back story and personality of the once coolest character in SW, no thanks, maybe Cad Bane.

      • RenneganZerg

        They dipped off the New Star Wars game that was being created by Visceral Games (Company that made Dead Space) And it was gonna be more loyal and be a linear game like KotOR that basically made this MMO even exist because of the KotOR’s game giant success, all because (From rumors/Other) that it was hard to make a Micro-Transaction input to the game and difficult to monetize. RIP the Dream Game, but hey, EA is going to do a Open World game Star Wars with Micro-Transactions like Shadow of War, which I mean for a pure Single player game, shouldn’t even have it in the first place…
        But what am I saying, we all hate on Micro-Transactions but they still get SO MUCH MONEY from it, To be honest, its a shitty but brilliant move that only real douche bags do.

        • gua543

          Obviously not all of us hate microtransactions, otherwise they wouldn’t exist. If everyone boycotted it like Steam’s and Bethesda’s attempts to make paid mods, we would live in a much better world. Gaming-wise at least.

        • HMH

          You got a source on this besides angry feelings? – “that it was hard to make a Micro-Transaction input to the game and difficult to monetize.”

  • I’ll be really amazed if they ever release a skin that doesn’t look like something that’s already been in-game.

      You have Section X, Black Hole, Oricon, CZ-198, Iokath, Yavin 4… Furthermore, for a person criticizing the GC system so much I would expect you wouldn’t bother grinding CXP.

      • Syok

        He has to, if he wants to stay competitive and do something more than being stuck in SM shittier like most of you scrubs.

        • gua543

          So, you choose to pray to RNGesus with every box instead of entering an ops and getting a drop? Interesting strategy.

          • Syok

            WTB group for every token I need.

            • gua543

              Mate, are you really that dense or you just enjoy annoying people? Why do you need gear in the first place if you are not playing with a guild? Going to do NiM runs with randoms?

              • Syok

                Nah, I am not dense at all. You are just trying to ignore broken CXP gain and loot from crates in place of doing ops for specified token. If BW implements something, we expect it to work properly.

              • gua543

                As a matter of fact I’m trying to ignore the existence of the whole GC system because it started out as an artificial method to (greatly) increase the time needed to get gear, while getting no new content to excuse the titanic grind, all of that being hidden by pretty lies. It’s almost good these days, after who knows how many tweaks, but the audacity and complete disregard of the majority of the opinions of the player base with which Bioware started the whole thing will always be there.

                Also, I have given up a long time ago on Bioware doing something properly. I mean, it’s to be expected something will not work for someone in a MMO, especialy if it’s a big expansion, but the time needed to fix literally game breaking bugs is simply… I don’t even know how to put it. I mean, the Jindo Krey fight (False Emperor first boss) is still bugged. And that’s from vanilla.

              • Syok

                It all came down to us not understanding each other, my apologies.

    The fact that this game is used to promote other Star Wars stuff but none of the other Star Wars stuff is used to promote this game should tell you everything you need to know about the future prospects for it.

    Just to mention since I just redeemed the code, their backend does generate a sharable code for this armour set. It’s in the form of the previous cantina codes. Has the /ce/ bit in the url.

    When you go into your account, it’s under the Shareable Rewards Links page and expires March 31, 2018.

    You can view your code here:

    Just in case someone missed it like a guildie or a new player.

    Hope this helps
