    these are the kinds of things you add when ppl already love your game and want to keep playing despite having done everything already

    is EA really this delusional about the games success still?

    You need to realize that this is an entirely voluntary system.

    It provides NO bonus really.

    We already have Valor rank for people who like to pvp, maybe this will cater more to pve'ers . 

    Anyways, as every other title grind, it's not mandatory, if you like playing in that fashion, you'll get good reputation regardless of whether you're trying or not.

    I don't see the problem, it's a title system, if you are a pvp player, you'rel ikely to skip it alltogether, and provided a alternative to light/darkside vendors( Their items suck anyways).

I HATE PIZZA!!!!!   Yeah, evil SWTOR offering something that someone may like.... How dare they!


    Because you don't want the pizza smell stenching the room.

    I eagerly read all SWTOR announcements, hoping against hope that they will do something to make me want to return.  And now this - yet ANOTHER grind mechanism, a thinly veiled attempt to keep people playing not because they are having fun but because they have invested too much already to leave.

    I left another beloved IP, LOTRO, when they nosedived into the cash shop exploitation model.  SWTOR's pain is of another variety, but no less dispiriting.

    Seriously, after all the things they could do to save the game they make a faction/rep grind? Really? It's like watching a train wreck you really can't look away it's so bad.

    As I remember when last time checked swtor is still 2nd game for sub numbers. Yes, very far behind wow, but still.

    So all they do is add another number to grind. Lawl.

If they honestly didn't care they wouldn't post anything would, let alone continue to comment on it multiple times.

    Look at this new "feature", never requested by anyone, never suggested by the community, just another number grind in good old static SWTOR-world

    Just in case some Disney suit is reading here, there should be no opportunity wasted to tell him to get a developer like SOE, Funcom or Trion to make a Star Wars MMO and cancel the contract with EA.

    Gives them something to do. Can't be all bad. I don't have emotional connection to video games. Good for people playing it, beats nothing at all.

    More content is never wrong in my opinion. Even if you don't love the feature it's always good to have the opportunity to do something else. It's not like someone is forcing you to do something you don't want.

    Copy from Star Tek Online and other MMO - no more fresh ideas from EA/Bioware. Shame.

    I think it';s an awesome idea and really plays into the legacy system as part of having legacy is that has a galactic impact, just like the Skywalker legacy. So, I'm looking forward to grinding points. Only thing I would add is that they provide a way for reptuation points to be earned while levelling too. You know, like LS/DS pts, your choices affect how different factions see you.
