There are legends characters but most are cannon, as Well as some new characters from the game classified as cannon

  • This game has no story.
    The game was never canon right from the start. As soon as HK was added (he may even be a launch toon, correct me if I'm wrong), all sense of canonity went out the window.
    This game will never be canon.
  • Okay. Thanks.

    Yet.
    I’m sure the devs could find a way to add one if they wanted to. But it wouldn’t be canon.

    All KOTOR stuff is non-canon. All of it has the potential to become canon if Disney want to, seeing as it doesn't yet conflict with anything they've done (see Jacen and Jaina Solo being forever non-canon due to Kylo), but until they make a new movie/game/TV show, it is non-canon.

    The hut guy being the baddie around the cantina in the game and the bar tender (can’t remeber her name) is about the closest thing to a story we have.

    The great thing about canon is it's a made up concept, so you can pick and choose your own personal canon and not worry about whatever "official" canon is.

    For example, in my canon, the prequels don't exist.

    Essentially the game happens "some time after" the events of all games, cartoons and movies since it has to encapsulate information from them all...

    And the Old Republic is becoming canon apparently... although how closely it will adhere to what we know already is unclear.

    You are literally one of the addicted Cantina players that use virtual data cards to simulate 3D battles. Like Pokemon, Bakugan, Yugi-Oh etc. A Fat Hutt that slams your face on table at the intro claims to be top 1 in the arena but he is too chicken to fight you in any stage since it's not available lol. (only gets his **** handed when ships are unlocked).

    As for the Journey and/or Legendary events that re-play certain events, it's just another simulation developed by Sharr (the Kel-dor challenges guy). I like to imagine that he is Plo Koon, having survived his crash and said screw this and got a relaxing job at the cantina, seeing as he is one the best characters in TCW lol

    He's actually not a villain just the current 'top player' when you start. Thing is, the one time you fight him he kinda sucks a lot.

  • The story is simple. It's an alternate universe where Star Wars characters are as fictional as they are in our real world, and the status of Legend/EU vs canon doesn't exist, they are all at the same level of canonicity.

    The Star Wars Holotable Card Game is a basic game with a HUGE lore behind it, comparable to the lore of RL games like Magic The Gathering, Warhammer, LoL, etc. Just a big useless lore that you don't need to know to enjoy the game.

    The Cantina is the game shop where competitions are held, HoloCards are sold and won, food and alcohol are served, and if you're geek enough to become friends with Sharr and take the time to listen him blabber endlessly about how "ackchually Reven was not really a true Jedi because....." then you'll get rewarded with a card from his super OP deck.

    Oh and a big fat no-life Hut is walking around bullying people but he spends so much in the shop that they can't kick him out.

    I think it's still the same universe as star wars and the characters aren't fictional but ancient legends that exist in their world.

    It should do it automatically.

    I do agree though. I'm pretty sure it's set in the star wars universe. Except were KOTOR actually happened.

    KOTOR did happen.
    Disney just doesnt like it because its better than their sequels.

    Actually, in the star wars universe KOTOR didn't happen, it isn't canon.

    What is story is the launch of characters in journey and legendary style. They do some story telling in those nodes. Also if you read the notes you got more background and story there.

    But then Disney declared the expanded universe to be legends, killing its canon status.

    One should consider the nature of what cannon means in SW context=disney decision. Who made SW again? So...

    GL went to the dark side, he can no longer be trusted.

    I certainly agree. So that leaves us with whatever we(each of use, seperately) consider to be SW is what SW is. Rest is just franchising schemes of the big players.
