This have absolutely nothing to do with official news. Its just some datamined info about new items. We may not even see all of them with new patch.

Do I really have to explain it?

Yes please, explain why people shouldn’t blame the devs for datamined stuff they are unsatisfied with, do tell. Can’t wait.

liking/disliking datamined items – is one thing, I was talking about another thing. Its a waste of time to explain things in haters nest.

A nonsence about money/lack of content in such themes – its just meh. I was hoping you all had your hate outbreak in latest official roadmap news.

I see the same people saying the same things they always say and the same people reading into it what they want.

What.. 😀 Trolololz 😀 Ah nvm maybe you were in some Extremely Hot Location when wrote this Mind Boggling Comment that’s about Whale Market. So effect of Heatstroke.. Eaware’s Lazy Devs have Joker Wide smile if see your Comment & it encourages them to shamefully keep Focus at Whale Market.

So effect of Heatstroke.. Wish you well & hopefully recovered 110% 🙂 #WaitingForSubWorthyNewsThenReturnOnline

I’ve looked at the Jedipedia things and I think I got the names for the unknown stuff

Jedi-ish robes: Force Apprentice
Smuggler-ish set: Corellian pilot
Sith/droid-ish set: Sith Cultist

Mount: Cybernetic Varactyl
Emote: Double Thumbs
Unknown at the bottom of the page: some npc deco pack. There’s a lot of Jedi and Sith npc decos in that list.. and it matches the picture.

So many people are gonna react with “where’s the content?”
but ehhh, they’re definitely alreadt working on that and besidedm you can’t just make them stop making new CM packs if it’s a way of income for them?
You’re all so impatient ffs

Impatient? Dude we’ve been waiting for a decent sized content drop since the last expansion…

They can’t just drop a full expansion now — they’re wise to spread content so it makes less people leave the game because they do not have to wait a year for something new to play. Also, 6.0 might have a new expansion 😀

In the road map they just told you there is not going to be an expansion like gamers think an expansion should be.

2017 is about to be just like 2018 as bioware also said and 2017 sucked ass when it comes to content and it’s release schedule.

Impatient? Thats not even close to the problem when it comes to gamers and bioware. More like feed up with their BS content cadence and their over reliance on figuring out a way to get you to do old, stale content again for the 6th year.

They didn’t drop a full expansion at all last year. They aren’t wise; people are leaving, and holding back content now would be the most retarded thing they could do for the longevity of this game.

Other MMO’s are making swtor look like a joke when it comes to content releases. Here, it’s a drip-feed of content that most people complete in less time than it takes the devs to get the servers back online.

If they’re holding back, they’re actively damaging the game. Though I highly doubt they’re holding anything back, beyond the truth of course.

What came out last year, in a full year for SWTOR, was less than one patch in ESO.

Let’s do a little comparison:

SWTOR had 2 strongholds – ESO released 41 houses, and a furniture crafting system with thousands of items to construct.

SWTOR had 2 short flashpoints – ESO released 12 dungeons/delves

SWTOR released 3 bosses of one raid in one mode – ESO released two full trials (raids) in both normal and veteran mode

SWTOR released a new daily area – ESO released two full zones with quests, exploration, etc. It take about an hour to explore SWTOR’s new zones whereas it takes 20-30 hours to complete the zones released in ESO.

SWTOR added 0 new armor sets in the game – ESO added 26 new ones

SWTOR added more RNG with the GC system – ESO removed some RNG with the transmutation system.

SWTOR added one cut and paste warzone – ESO added 4 battlegrounds each with five different game modes.

I could go on about a lot of things that were added in ESO above and beyond that. In addition, the same comparison could be made between SWTOR and just about any other MMO out there and SWTOR would come in dead last in content cadence to customers. Yet they charge the same for a sub as those putting out regular, good amounts of content for the sub money.

It is not impatience, it is embarrassment. Customers are seeing what other MMOs give people for their money and SWTOR is a joke in what they deliver while asking for the same premium sub price.

However, I also bring ESO up for a reason, there is quite a bit of discussion in zone chat about people who have left SWTOR for ESO for the reason I mentioned above – regular delivery of a decent amount of content.

Thank you for that comparison. I’ve already erased by credit card from the SWTOR subscription page so I’ll be done with this game in about 2 months. I now know where I want to go and thats ESO.

Good to hear o/ ESO developed by talented & Dedicated Zenimax Studios deserves a lots of love <3 About Swtor's sad but True State: This Cartel Wars: The Wrath of the Loot Crate Development is the most Disgusting so called Mmo fact on the Mmo's market :/

Has been like that for over a year + & doesn't seem to slow down. Not in Swtor's Twitter, Reddit, fb & anywhere :/ Shameful work by Eaware's Swtor Skeleton Crew including Sugar Coater King Keith.

All Gods of The Machine bosses have two modes, Story and Veteran…. other than that, yes, there is no comparison

Sorry Way, but that doesn’t paint the full picture.

The truth is even if TOR started putting out the same content as ESO I wouldn’t return to the game.

Because you forgot to mention the best part about ESO: the classes. Where in TOR you have little room to customize your toon, in ESO you have ALL the liberty to do so.

In TOR the devs have gone to painstaking detail to make every class as miserable as possible. The last few times I played TOR I only got some enjoyment from my Engi Sniper (my all-time favourite class) and my dps Operatives (yes I’m a bit of an Imp Agent fan). You are force fed ALL your abilities, and can only come to some sort of customization through the use of Utilities.

In ESO you can have hybrid monsters of characters. Of course not all of them are going to be Endgame viable. Of course there are class imbalances in ESO. It is an MMO after all.

With the use of add-ons (another thing TOR doesn’t have) I got my Argonian healer-dps Nightblade to have TWO full sets of gear: light and heavy armor. The light armor is for group content. The heavy armor is for solo play. And boy, am I unkillable (in solo play, that is). I use “Dressing Room” for that. I’m having so much fun with that one it should be ilegal.

Speaking of ilegal: damn, the city guard is after me. I knew I shouldn’t have robbed those places… Gotta run, bb!!!

Nope. Just because most of what the devs do is shite doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate a good armour design.

Yeah that’s cool. I didn’t mean that 😛 I also like some armor designs in Swtor, but unfortunately since golden early days those have been rare finds. Sad & also good fact is that with some Mmo’s Devs can bring out nice jewels “armor, weapons etc.” even after several years & loots of new gameplay ideas.

That’s not much of a case with Swtor :/ Wish you good path ahead & hope enjoy whatever game is running wild at your Rig 🙂
#WaitingForSubWorthyNews #SubbedSinceLaunchToDec2016

Yeah most of the time they’re shit, which is why I like this new Jedi robe. Gives me a kind of travelling Jedi vibe.

I’m hoping once Anthem is released and tanks miserably that we might get some actual content. Would be nice if we could earn armour in-game again :/

“I’m hoping once Anthem is released and tanks miserably that we might get some actual content. Would be nice if we could earn armour in-game again..”

^^ Good dream even very thin dream atm. Here’s to hoping.. *Raises Pint* 😛

“Force-User Personnel Bundle”

“This bundle contains the following Stronghold decorations:

1 Jedi Master
1 Jedi Battlemaster
1 Jedi Knight
1 Jedi Sentinel
1 Jedi Scholar
1 Jedi Padawan
1 Sith Lord
1 Sith Assassin
1 Sith Ritualist
1 Sith Ravager
1 Sith Apprentice
1 Sith Acolyte”

I really like 1st armor set. Some decorations look strange (fountain, zakuulan statue), I hope they put them in deco packs, or I will be really confused.

Indeed.. This Cartel Wars: The Wrath of the Loot Crate Development is the most Disgusting so called Mmo fact on the Mmo’s market :/ Has been over a year & doesn’t seem to slow down. Not in Swtor’s Twitter, Reddit, fb & anywhere :/ Shameful work by Eaware’s Swtor Skeleton Crew including Sugar Coater King Keith.

I like it because they would be plain and kinda boring looking without those added details. Plus the old Republic comics in both Marvel and Dark Horse is full of flaps, capes, backpacks, rocket packs, & lots of that stuff.

As a Trooper since day one, I fucking love butt flaps, and I will fight anyone who doesn’t. Full capes and the backpacks that keep getting stranger and stranger as time goes on? Not so much.

Take those leather shoulder pads off that first robe-y set, and they’d have something on the good side of decent-looking there.

When does that DHG saber become a direct sale item? lol

I love the leather shoulder pads, its what makes the set look like something unique that’s not already in game.

Yeah, I agree that the top would look even better if the brown leather shoulder pads/guard was removed. Or if they later bring out such a version of the top. Also been waiting to see the simple version of the Gifted Shadow’s Jacket come out [that was seen on some of the NPC’s during the Nar Shaddaa Summer of Splendor Night Life Event last year].

More variety without the ‘fugly’ pads/asymmetrical junk plastered onto nice looking armor sets would be awesome.

It looks like its supposed to be inspired by Rey’s jedi outfit. She has that weird double shoulder thing.

That fountain in the picture is already in the game (can’t remember the name right now).

It looks like there’s going to be a Zakuul Decoration Bundle, from that picture that includes that fountain, probably.

Being as my SH’s aren’t full of chairs that is one thing that would truly interest me if so.

NPC decos that aren’t holograms or crappy looking soldiers are few and far between. The good ones are also very expensive.

Lol sad but decorating the one part of the game I play outside of GSF these days. :p

Looks like lots of The Last Jedi inspired things, which is cool…. but would be cooler if players could earn it by playing instead of buy it/gamble for it.

(OP Darth Gnaw)

Armors: “Force Apprentice” (Silver), “Corellian Pilot” (Silver), & “Sith Cultist” (Gold)

Agreed. I’m just worried about the price, especially if I want more than one of each (I like to have an even number of most generic NPC decos).

Huh- Thought the Force Apprentice would come out Gold. It certainly feels higher quality than the Cultist.

What’s annoying about the Sith is they don’t have “classic” Sith armour ffs…. only the levitating one does. No capes, no shoulderspads… AND NEITHER SIDE HAS LIGHTSABERS!!!

I knew they’d fuck it up when they eventually got around to it.

Hopefully they’ll at least have them on their belts.

Note: If you’re Kiri, it looks like we’re finally getting the Pureblood Sith in the red Voss Mystic robes from Oricon.

Seems that way… 😀
Precious Cartel Whale Market where half blind remaining Fanboys & Girls remain. They feed it with blindly at times with large sums & never realise that how much better spent those 50+ $,€,£ could be used.

25+ € Whale Market Lightsaber, 20+ € Mounts that often are ugly & even if not it’s not Logical to spend such amounts like that. #MomAndDaughterFeudExpansionsStole2ImportantMmoYears

Wow, this bot didn’t even wait for more comments before copying the previous post…

[Hail Lord Ji’inx]

Those Dark Honor weapons are so freaking nice man I’d wish they just stop doing their cartel packs and just sells them directly on the CM armors looks cool too

What if that last unknown photo is an emote pack with all those emotes. That should have been in the game 5 years ago?

Does this mean they are going to eliminate the NPC limit in those strongholds that are affected?

If MMORPG communities gave out awards for quantity of in game shop junk, SWTOR would be the raining champion 🙂

HOLY MOTHER OF GOD. Had to go back and look at it again…and YES. Yes, it scarily enough does. LMAO

Congrats. You win the internet today. 🙂

Damn “Keith”. Could you have found a bigger pair of fucking idiot sycophants then those two dipshits from that pod cast?? The irony is one of the hosts talks about not wanting to give softball questions before the interview starts, but proceeds to defend and stick up for Keith with his typical BW excuses and talking total utter bullshit.

Hey “Keith”, how the holy fuck do you not know how a road map works? Perhaps King of Bullshit Keith should look to how other REAL mmo’s work and deliver, because after listening to this podcast, boy oh boy, King of Bullshit Keith is a complete fool and retard as we all expected, and utterly out of his depth.

FYI: To anyone who wants to listen to two guys sucking Keith’s cock, you can fast forward to 7 minutes before it actually begins. The first 7 minutes is just the two hosts talking like a pair of spastics.

Looks like he was shopping around for another job…

Oh look, QC Games is hiring for his position. What a nonsensical type of post that was by him…

That was my first reaction as well.
I’ve never seen him do this before.
He might be grooming both for his job application.

Any company he applies for, only needs to look at his posts on swtor.com to see how useless he is. Fucktard Musco would be better off changing his name and leaving swtor off his resume.

Or how good he is at kissing management’s ass in towing the line. Well if QC games hires him, he can stay in Austin

So much reactions over a few tweets lmfao so when you an accountant and decide to tweet a book references does that means the accountant look to become a writer? Absolutely not guys come nowadays everyone is tweeting about everything we can even see Insomniacs Games live streaming playing other video games that doesn’t mean they are looking for other jobs that the same here leave the guy alone if you’re not happy then look elsewhere just saying

Haha Yes indeed.. Fk how good belly Abs training this comment gave 😀 Million upvotes ^^ Poor Musco literally butt kissing King Keith for his sad Blogs Sugar Coatings 😀

Bro you shouldn’t post a picture of your dogs on the Internet now everyone will make fun of you and honestly if it’s how you treat your dogs I don’t want to see how you treat your children poor kids

This is like the sales rep guy at Pepsi saying he would rather drink Coke loooool!

But for once I DO agree with Musco. Albeit a different kind of game, “Overwatch” is a much better game than TOR. Not my kind of game, but it is very good.

And I bet most people would rather comment on the upcoming content BW is going to deliver… But not much luck there I’m afraid. So yeah: good on you Musco, I bet you are having so much more fun in “Overwatch” than in TOR.

Is this for real? I mean, is this guy actually giving other games props? This is awesomely bad!

Hey, my kids do play Overwatch. I bet they are WAY better than him. They can give him some pointers loool…

Hey my banned ones (by me =)) Musco here. Don’t worry about my job, i’m the best community manager ever as a matter of fact EA have just increase my salary this year (for doing nothing yeah i know amazing isn’t it?) so thank you for your attention i know you can’t sleep thinking about me but im more than ok, now F off!!

I dig the cybernetic Varactyl, also the middle and left armor sets are looking good too. Hilt’s looking a little big on the Dark Honor guard’s saber though

Yes. When I log in now, I realize after a couple minutes that I’m bored. I love the game and have had a lot of good times, but i’ve done everything so many times over that its become unexciting. I need something new to do. And giving us returning companions with little more than a 2 minute cutscene is just a tease that makes it feel worse.
We need a Shadow of Revan level expansion (It had a new solo story with a decent sized planet, (Rishi) new FPs, new op, new daily area planet to grind after your done with the story for a couple months, new gear cosmetics as well as new mods and then some pvp stuff and additional story that trickled in later)
I would gladly pay them up front for such an expansion as well as a sub.

Im still on it lol I just wait for Story Content, SHs, Companions and cool CM items. And I unsub and skip all retarded ops related content.

“Dark Honor Guard’s Unstable Lightsaber” Cool another 500 million credit item on the GTN. Can’t wait.

If it is being sold for 500M it means other ppl can afford it, shame you are poor tho… It’s market that dictate price, not devs.

where does it say that he is blaming the Devs? You are defending against something that doesn’t exist

Well it’s also the devs fault since they put it that rare they don’t have to do this it’s just a way for them to make more money out of their microtransactions when we know that if they were to sell it directly on the CM I bet they would make more money out of it

I’m sorry, but most people don’t enjoy farming the exact same heroic missions every day or playing Star Wars: Market Simulator for months on end in order to get a ton of credits. It is the devs’ fault, when they put in items that are so stupidly rare that only a tiny fraction of the playerbase even has a tiny fraction of a chance to get one. This is why microtransaction loot boxes and player driven economies don’t mix.

That has nothing to do with the Current “development” that’s been going on for 1,5 + years with this Wrath of the Cartel Market ex Mmo. Everyone with clean eyes knows this & esp. veterans who have them like that 🙂 No BS, but Sad But True Facts from “work” done by Shameful Swtor’s Eaware crew :/

Wrath of the Cartel Market & post above doesn’t have anything to do with this reply that you refered on. Take care enjoy gaming in whatever game that is. #WaitingForSubWorthyNews #SubbedSinceLaunchToDec2016

6 months later only 6 months later they get cheap and if they look dumb you might want to look how much the vented crossguard lightsaber is before publying comments like that

It’s cool! But 500 million credits, seriously!? No one will buy with that much it would be the same price as the Defiant Vented Lightsaber (it the same cross lightsaber type) and around 50-80 million credit

Maybe in 6 months it will get at 50-80 mils but I guarantee you that it will be around 500 mils when it will first get in GTN

That Dark Honor Guard’s lightsaber looks like a fantastic way to lose a bunch of fingers. This game has some astoundingly poor weapon design.

The platnium vibroblade looks cool only because im sure it extends from a short version when put away but that new angled cross guard…. lol Give us the DARK SABER maybe I’ll buy packs with real money.
