    1.7 in a nutshell - PQ'S, CASH SHOP, REP GRINDS...OH MY!

    EA is going to ask the wizard of OZ for a heart...

    EA is also going to ask him for courage to innovate and not copy.

    The Swtor playerbase is gonna ask for a brain. This needs to explanation.

    I think this is great. The game seems to be slowly heading in the right direction.

    This will encourage more open world pvp as well.

  • BadOrbBadOrb ManchesterPosts: 791Member Uncommon

    It sounds pretty good really , just hope you don't get flgged for PVP within that area on Ilum though. I will be still happy for PVP'ers though if that's the case. So it's an ongoing event and from the one screen shot it seems it will have at least 4 sections to gain "reputation" from. Might be a little grindy but at least it's something for poor ilum. I like the sound of the mobile imperial fleet too. It will give people something else to do before the cap goes up in a few months. That "Tron" looking armor seems pretty decent too.

    Cheers,

    The faction thing (should that turn out to be what it is) is a good addition to the game. Not having additonal faction and its effects was a problem IMO.

    A little bit more info. but It might just be worded differently , here it is -

     

    Game Update 1.7: Return of the Gree is coming soon to The Old Republic™, allowing players to experience brand new in-game content, including a limited time event and an exciting new way to progress your character.

    • Explore the Planet Ilum to unveil a new Event, Relics of the Gree! A mysterious ancient Gree starship called “the Gray Secant” has appeared over Ilum’s Western Ice Shelf. Those who are brave enough will get the chance to help the Gree and face off against a powerful foe waiting in the heart of the Gree vessel. Republic and Imperial forces that finish this mission will earn exclusive Gree technology, including highly advanced weapon and armor appearances!
    • Advance your character with the new Galactic Reputation system! The Galactic Reputation system lets you earn Reputation points by completing missions for factions such as the Gree or the Voss, or for military divisions within the Republic and the Empire. This new system advances characters through six ranks of increasing prestige: “Outsider”, "Newcomer", "Friend", "Hero", "Champion", and "Legend". Galactic Reputation is also tied to a character’s Legacy, so Reputation points and ranks are shared across all the characters within the same Legacy!

    Visit the Game Updates Page for additional information and screenshots of the content coming to Game Update 1.7. As always, you can stay connected with Star Wars: The Old Republic through FacebookTwitter, and YouTube.

    This is an improvement from Illum 1.0 at least. Still not interested in more daily grinds even if it is for faction reputation.

    No kidding. I still got five other characters to level in this game for their class stories .I just figured out what role my three 50 level guys will be doing and still haven't finished all the end game stuff for them. Plus there is guild events to do every week. So much to do and so little time. :)

    Yeah no kidding. I"ve only played 3 of the stories to 50, Trooper, Consular and Sith Warrior. I just finished my Consular/Shadow yesterday. Next will either be a Jedi Knight or Bounty Hunter, probably Bounty Hunter since I just went through questing on the Republic side. I know many people didnt like the Consular, and it was a litle dull, but the end was good so it made up for it.

    But yeah, so much to do.

    In reply to ability to buy reputation with cartel coins. I don't think anybody in right mind will do something like that. I much prefer to gain reputation by questing and spend my CC on cartel boxes /grin

     

    I am very excited about 1.7. I love Ilum. The night sky in Ilum is the best I've ever seen in any game :)

    What does FTP have to do with anything? The game is Freemium. Endgame Reputation grind is aimed at the subscribers.

    On top of your monthly subscription fee, Bioware is hoping people will buy real cash boosts to what I imagine is a tedious reputation grind a la WoW.

    The reputation grind's reward is high end gear.  The game is drifting closer to Pay To Win.

    I don't like it, Seven seems ambivalent, you seem beligerent about it.

    Pay2win not even close. Belligerent (spelled correctly) ? I am not the one bashing a game I dont play on every post that pops up. You fit that definition not I.
  • tiefighter25tiefighter25 Winchester, MAPosts: 937Member

    Kudos on your spelling skillz.

    Out of curiosity, how do you know I don't play the game?

    On second thought, I don't really care about that, I'm more curious as how you don't see this as buying a competative advantage.

    *Sorry if there are any spelling errors beforehand.

    This site allows you to view a person post history. Not that hard to tell if someone plays a particular game or just bashed it cause they like to waste years of their life bashing a video game they dont play. As play 2 win as I see it would require you to buy top end gear that is better than anything else in game. Because you can buy a rep bonus (like every other f2p) does not make it p2w. You still need to play the game to get rep. A person that does rep bonus is not guaranteed to get there before someone that does not buy the bonus. Therefore this example of p2w us purely inaccurate. Please give another example of p2w in swtor.

     AoC, EQ2, LoTRo, DDO, RoM, AO, Atlantica Online, Vindictus...those are a few off the top of my head that comes without needing to actually think about it.

    I swear some of these posters will defend anything that has to do with swtor...

    Well next time you do your due diligence research into who plays the game and who's opinions are valid or not by going through post history, you could take notes and such on if there are any accurate points tucked in there. Kill two birds with one stone as it were. I thought I had a valid concern as to the future of the game, but apparently my opionion is invalid. So I guess enjoy the option to pay extra money to reduce the length of reputation grind.

    Well i agree some will pay to reduce the time and that's their choice but all I was saying is that by no means =p2w.
