    I greatly appreciate you folks at CG giving some love to in-game chat, HOWEVER... I still think there is a huge loss of not tapping into the arena shard, region (language), and global chat features.

    Most, if not all, guilds use either Line or Discord to chat with their guild mates or prospects, BUT there is a whole community out there (US) that is missing out on chatting with people, we don't know, in-game. That's a big part of the fun and community bonding! That ALSO opens up another avenue for the #GameChangers to interact with people, and promote the idea and their channel.

    Please, i beg of you, please put real consideration into a meaningful update to in-game chat.

    Global chat would be an absolute nightmare with hundreds of thousands (or millions) of players. Things would move so fast that it's unlikely anyone would actually get any value out of it.

    Yes, exactly.
    My number one concern with chat and DM is being able to turn it off or block. I’ve had WAY too many nasty experiences on game chat to be very excited about this. If I have a way to shut down troublesome players, I’m fine.

  • I'm very happy to hear this. I've been dying to see more ship content. Excited for sure.
  • Is there any more information surrounding the chat update available?

    I am wondering if communication is going to open up outside of In-Guild. It seems like a divided item with some people wanting less chatting and some wanting more.

    Are we going to have an Inbox with messages from people in our shards, our Allies list or from other Guilds/Shards?

    Or are we going to end up with a WoW-like message board, like current but with considerable more traffic.

    Wookie faction?
  • What about comics characters? I'd like to play with the S.C.A.R. Squadron as a dark side version of the Fenix Squadron. Also it'd be interesting to have the wookies Tarfful and Black Krrsantan and the dorids BT-1 (Bee Tee) and 0-0-0 (Triple-Zero) (everybody wants to be haunted by a couple of psychopathic droids).

    I know that there are lots of important characters that aren't in the game like Padme (Battle of Geonosis), Nien Nunb (rebel/resistant pilot) or Ki-Adi-Mundi/Shaak Ti (Jedi Master), but I'd like to have characters from other stories.
  • will the new chewbacca get a rebel tag?

    Love it! Finally updating the chat ability, Bossk is one of the more frequently requested characters, new ships content, sounds like a home run to me!

    My biggest question is "what energy will be used for Ships PVE?" Will we have to manage a scarce resource across more area (more demand on a limited supply), or will we have a special Ships PVE energy? I'm really hoping the latter, since otherwise it would mess with current farming.
    We have another interview coming today with dbofficial125 - keep an eye open for that pop up as he has more info on the Ship stuff.

    LOL - I was excited about just the BH stuff - I completely missed the part on ships. Even better!!

    @CG_Carrie when will the kits be revealed? All at once? Or similar to the OG rebel faction reworks, where it was one per day.

    @BrtStlnd

    Saying it is top of mind is not non answer but honesty, and the big take away is that it is a known community hot issue - also asking the question and being vocal about your desire for it is good! Just pointing out that its not dismissive is all, and in Q and A and posts keep brining ideas or just “status on Mod UI” - not an us vs you, if its going to take time ~ a date may be hard to give but rather than being discouraged, keep the topic moving in the future

    And think it was a good point here now! =)

    After the Bounty Hunters, we are going to be in full on “Solo” mode. We will start by releasing… you guessed it, another Han Solo (we’ve seen the memes), and pairing him with the movie’s Chewbacca – as the first of a number of characters from the upcoming movie.

    So.. No more TLJ content in the near future? There are still a number of named characters that need to be introduced.

    am i the only one more worried about "contracts" than excited?

    I just hope they update and improve the Thermal Detonators mechanic. Make them all stick NO MATTER WHAT and don’t count it as a debuff are some suggestions I’ve seen by others that I like.

    Without some changes to ig88, that would work against him, just a thought. I do want to see them get a rework.

    How does one speed up ship combat? once you have a chimera fights only last about about a minute and a half.
  • Out of curiosity, why did you decide to not rework Cad Bane?
  • YAY bounty hunter contract and rework! Been monts that I ask for that!
  • I really hope Embo will be farmable!

    @CG_Carrie With no announced date on the BH rework, what exactly are we supposed to spend our money on to support the game? It's been coming up on a month and a half since any new characters were released, and there are no packs of note in the store. Give us a nice assortment of marquee characters! And we won't hate you at all if you sneak Tallie Lintra and her A-Wing into the game. Like, not at all.
  • What does TU12 client update mean?
  • Will the Ability Materials Mega Pack return for the upcoming Legendary Event? Can it be added on a permanent basis?
