Hey guys, I know many of you enjoy KOTOR but personally, I could care less and have zero interest in anything KOTOR. That being said, the announcement of Ebon Hawk had me wondering what it was and, of course, it's another KOTOR item. After this year long of pretty much KOTOR take over, what do you guys think will be next? Do you think there will be anything else canon to release BEFORE Episode 9 or do you think it will mostly be Episode 9 stuff? Just curious as to what you guys think might be on the books for future AFTER KOTOR.

  • According to what Mc2Mole said in his latest video Darth Malak is next this month. Legendary Event unlock at 5 stars.

    I was hoping for Malak before Darth Revan so fingers crossed.

    Don't care what comes after unless it's all the main characters from KOTOR 2 or Delta Squad from Republic Commando. Until then I'mma farm all the KOTOR toons cause they've actually got character behind them. Everyone in the Sequel trilogy is static and has no growth. Maybe Kylo, but I'm not gunna hold my breath. It has only been a year of KOTOR and the Devs stated that they had an ambitious 5-year plan for the game, I'm sure you non-KOTOR fans might get some characters you'll enjoy.

    If you dont like it, dont level gear those char, simple.
    Be patient, you will get your turn.
  • Firstly and lastly, the devs are handing out a ship obtainable by every over(60?) and that means free to play players also have a good chance to unlock it. Be greatful or kiss good bye to the free content! I couldn’t care if it was Jar Jar binks. Free is free and i’m soo thankful i don’t need to wait 5 months to start farming it.

    ? Do you work for CG? How is it going to be f2p friendly?

    I don't care about SW much at all...really.

    Kotor is the best SW related thing I've seen, but then I don't care for them to be in this game. It's not like this game has any storytelling/feeling value...at least not for me.

    I do care whatever gets released means for this game in terms of this game.

    I didn’t mind it at first. I don’t like the game, but plenty do, so I live with it. But it’s starting to get extremely annoying that there are not only so many characters, but that it’s meta defining. Meanwhile, Disney has some outstanding new content they are churning out in the books and comics and nothing from the literature has been touched at all.

    Although I disagree that KOTOR is a complete takeover, I do believe there is a lot of potential in the new (and old) novels. I loved the old novels, and so far the new ones are just as enticing. I think they should have geared Thrawn more towards the new books, toward his roots, instead of his Rebels story. And although most of the book is politicians blabbering, Eli Vanto and Governor Pryce (also in Rebels) are interesting characters.

    I'm betting it's going to be clone wars era, probably some time in the summer, so that they can leave the fall open for more sequel trilogy stuff.

    Hopefully we can move on to the legacy era with Mara Jade / Kyle Katarn / Darth Krayt etc
  • i imagine KOTOR for a while then episode 9 will happen, then they follow up with some random released characters in the original trilogy, finally i hope they either start working on the prequels more or work with the force unleased

    Most of us KOTOR fanboys are fine to have both pies, we love most of the OT and PT content, along with animated series. But as much as you complain, from our point of view we had 2 years of 4 Old Republic characters. (HK-47 in the first year, Darth Nhilus, Sith trooper, and Sith assassin in the second year) This third year is really where we had lots of great new Old Republic content, gaining 17 characters from the Old Republic Era (including the now Ebon Hawk). There are plenty more I want to see in the game personally. But even this third year was far from a "KOTOR Only" year. (people are mad because two separate metas contained kotor characters mixed with other era characters such as palpatine or grand master yoda) We had the solo characters, bounty hunter rework along with several new bounty hunters, and three legendary characters released from the OT era: Chewbacca, C-3P0, and the Millennium Falcon. These all make me happy, I enjoy all this content. You complainers make me sick. You should enjoy all things star wars, not just those things that you like. Maybe this is a reminder for you to spend less than $10 to buy KOTOR and play it on xbox, Mac, or PC. Or maybe it's just a place for you to complain over and over again. Who knows?

    Meh prob only one ship in history of game was 3* -4* star viable. And its still most used ship in game...

    I do not mind GC at all... but till sith meta hits palp worthless at 7*. And hawk will prob be great at 7*... but under current meta just unlocking a ship for free means nothing... even arena unless some gimmick like droideka marquee GC toons pretty meh till maxxed...

    So yeah great i get 2-3* hawk for free..... ill let ya know in 2020 how it does when maxxed...again i like GC gonna farm stuff anyway :) but these days its still meh cept for whales
  • Dude, there is such toxicity behind these complaints that you all make me sick. Yours might have been mild, but the fact that your complaints are saying that this game is only a KOTOR game now is dumb. You know that around 10% of the current content in the game is related to the Old Republic Era? There are a total of 18 characters from the old republic era, and 3 ships. There are proportionally more of every single era content in this game. But you don't want to care about the facts. You only want to care about your preferred content. I love the Old Republic faction the most. Me and several other people have voted for Old Republic content for a couple years in the surveys that CG has sent out. We are happy to have this content. But the difference between KOTOR fans and you complainers is that we are happy to get all the content we can get. So yes, you all make me sick. 1 year of Old Republic dominance (mixed with Original Trilogy and Prequel Trilogy content of course) versus 2 years of every other era dominance. Plus we all know that the game won't be focused on KOTOR for the entire lifespan.

    I'll let you in on a secret. I never heard of the Clone Wars TV series, nor Rebels TV series until this game. This game made me want to watch that content and I fell in in love with it. MAYBE, JUST MAYBE, if you played KOTOR you would understand why there are so many passionate fans about it! It would take you the same amount of time to play the games as it did for me to watch the TV series.

    Serious question; what is it about characters who originated in video games that causes you to view them as inherently "less than" characters who originate in other parts of Star Wars? Shouldn't the quality of writing, quality of art, and quality of acting be more important than whether those things were in a game, cartoon, comic book, or live action?

    it doesn't make them "inherently" less than, but I've never seen a video game - ever - that had characterization as deep or as complex as even the relatively predictable Star Wars movie characters. On top of that, I've never heard people quote dialog of video game characters the way people quote dialog from movies like various Star Wars movies or The Princess Bride. And I've played interesting video games, sure. FF7 & Parasite Eve were two I really liked from just before the KOTOR era, but while they had interesting story to them, the VAST majority of the time you're interacting with the game you're not getting story, you're hunting items or fighting a boss, etc.

    People quote dialogues from a movie not necessarily because it's deep but that particular thing grew so much that several instances from it got soaked in the popular culture. And this has been further reinforced by repetition in the franchises themselves. Why are they all oneliners where you can apply to incredibly many situations?

    -It's a trap-
    -I've got a bad feeling about this-

    Video games have been hardly any different in this sense, I mean the video games that reached similar levels of popularity as movie franchises. If I said "Work, work" in a particular tone, many would get what I'm quoting from and context of it, or "nuclear launch detected". Similarly iconographies, symbols from them are employed widely.

    Lastly I have hard time taking your claim that any average SW movie has better characterization/deeper story than any game you've played seriously. But that's whole another avenue we can riff on I guess.

  • I'm FtP and got the Emperor's Shuttle to 5* during its event.

    Yes, I had to spend a bunch of crystals on it, but I just suspended my Cantina energy refreshes for those days & spent the same crystals on Fleet refreshes ... and then bought the 1x Fleet Energy pack in the store for 600 crystals.

    So really, I just delayed Cantina farm for 4 days + spent 600 crystals. That's it. Got a 5* ship. Better than marquee which tops out at 3*. The big problem here is that the pilot is Carth, who is a long, slow farm at this point with just one fleet node.
  • Kotor is the best star wars ever so the more we get the better.

    If KOTOR has a place here, what about other video games like unleashed and battlefront to name a few?

    We should have starkiller in this game, among others. (Kyle Katarn for example) Non of us KOTOR fanboys would complain about that content in the game at all. Just these purists that only want Original Trilogy or Prequel Trilogy content in the game.
