Didn't you just get done saying that you wanted the game to be true to star wars?  I'm not a star wars fan but I know some things about the timeline.   Yodas species if very rare, seeing tons of those would not follow the star wars world.

 

Mike summed up why wookies wouldn't work here, not to mention they didn't leave their home world very often.

 

You can't want them just to want them and then turn around and say that games that don't follow the IP will fail.

There is no possible way that only humans are a playable race. This is not some cheap asian f2p game.

Stop putting words in my mouth. I have never said this game will fail. Not financially, at least. Others have. Not me.

A green Human is not a human... Unless it's one affected by a severe case of sea-sickness (usually shades of grey and pink are more common in that case though, believe me); or one who has been fermenting for some time.

A blue Human is usually dead, depending on the shade of blue though.

Red humans have spend a bit too many hours in the sun, or are dead.

Feel free to use my referral link for SW:TOR if you want to test out the game. You'll get some special unlocks!

I didn't say you said that exactly, that was paraphrasing an interpretation.  You said that we have to have to be true to the IP, but we can't be true to the IP by having races and then not be true to the IP by making those races do something that those races wouldn't do.

 

I'm not a star wars expert, and personally I don't care if there are wookie jedi's  ... but there are plenty of others that feel otherwise.

This is a ridicilous thread. Who ever thinks TOR will only have humans, the kind you see in the mirror every morning just doesn't get what Star Wars is all about. SW is about many humaniod species not alien races.

Wookiee Jedi sounds like something someone would really crusade for.

"I want to be a mother ****in' WOOKIEE JEDI and there's no ****in' thing you can ****in' say that will change my ****in' mind, because it's a ****IN' WOOKIEE JEDI *****! *Insert Chewbacca's famous roar here*!"

Yeah.... no. It just doesn't seem that crazy to me for someone to really feel that way, y'know?

Getting a bit sad now.

Rattataki are from another planet, all born with the same features. Bald, chalky white skin.

Key words - Another Planet, all have same features.

Greed, two comments:

1) Rattataki do look very humanoid, which is why people are scoffing at the idea they're "aliens." In reality, 95% of Star Wars aliens are at least vaguely humanoid, so there's a big pool BioWare can still choose from. I guess it needs tentacles and horns and wins and claws and pincers and antennae and tails and helicopter hats and piercings and tattoos and multiple heads and multiple arms and everything else inbetween before it's an "alien." Pfft.

2) The blue man looks like my high school Oceanography teacher, except, well, he's not blue. That's damn scary, though.

Alien - a form of life assumed to exist outside the Earth or its atmosphere

This is from our perspective, therefore we use "earth". Rattataki are not from earth. If you decide to play a Rattataki, humans are now the aliens.

Species is totally different

Rattataki is near human, Rattataki was born on Rattatak (not earth).

blue man is human, blue man was born on earth (I can't prove this).

Star Wars doesn't explain where humans came from. Most believe coruscant. That's irrelevant, the definition of alien holds truth. This all relates to where your home is.

Well if the leaked guide is true, which it seems pretty legit...

 

No Races besides human in TOR.

Which in my opinion is just completely unacceptable. That was a fan want and need that seemed like a joke to not include a year ago.

 

Now people have just started to accept it going "O well they will add them in later" or "Who cares, id rather see more models for humans anyways."

 

The truth is, not having multiple races to choose from isnt going to help the game out in any way, its just plain lazy, thats all there is too it. But then again everything that has been coming from the TOR camp lately has seemed lazy, companions all being the same, talent tree style "Sub classes" (yea right!), not to mention no space to date or anything that even seems remotely star Wars like.

 

I mean thats what kills it for me, they keep saying all this stuff about how "Heroic" the game is going to be, but to be heroic do you really have to remove every race that wasnt a main character, and every class or proffesion that wasnt shown in gross detail in the movies?

 

Also just so you know, if the leaked guide is said to be fake or whatever, I still stand by all my comments, the leaked guide only made me speak out, it didnt determine every conclusion i have made.

Yet another poster making a shallow decision, and this time based on some "Leaked" info.

So what if there will be only humans come release, speaking from experience I have found the multitude of different races to choose from nothing but eye candy, they tend not to offer any real differences other than the look, and if all your concerned about is looking different well this obviously won't be the game for you.

I will certainly not base my opinion on the game on your post or any other shallow posters who only care about the eyecandy, graphics do not make a game, they help but they do not make a game, look at WoW for instance, many would say it's cartoony graphics are terrible, yet it's simple gameplay has over 11 million subs playing, goes to prove that graphics ain't everything.

So thats another free spot on the server, though I suspect that these ppl who claim all these "Game breakers" will actually still buy and play the game, just looking for a little drama.

You can't use that as an argument. Alien also means from another country "within" your planet or merely people you have never encountered before. If you going to use the word Alien in that sense you can't say other peoples definition of what an Alien is, is wrong.  Since alien's meaning can be different from person to person.

I'm a maskedweasel, what do you expect?

 

I'd rather have races open to all classes then class specific races.

 

I guess you could say I'm a star wars fan of the games.  Battlefront was possibly one of, if not the most favorable game I look back on.  I spent a lot of time playing battlefront 1 and 2 with my friends, and we had some amazing times.  The next star wars games that got me into the star wars world was KOTOR and SWG.  These are what brought my interest to the star wars world.....  I am not a fan of the movies.

Sad. He fought, he flew the Falcon. He fixed stuff. You call him a companion. Sounds very racist, frankly.

Han solo didn`t wear armour. Luke didn`t. Obi Wan didn`t.

In an earlier post, he said he wasn`t a fan.
