LFD tools are great for cramming people into content, but quality > quantity.I am, usually on the sandbox .. more "hardcore" side of things, but I also do just want to have fun. So lighten up already

Ewoks were not in the Original Trilogy. They didnt show up until Ep6. The "last" movie in the series.
The original Trilogy included episode 6. I think you confused original trilogy for original movie!
And The Old Republic is thousands of years before the original trilogy and the two-legged chihuahuas were introduced. So the argument is rather pointless.
The Old Republic was introduced about 20 years after the Original Trilogy
The Ewoks may have not been introduced until episode 6 but I doubt they just materialised in Episode 6, as there was a community of them, and there were even baby ewoks, so they would have existed in episode 4
I guess now they even existed in The Old Republic, or is there evidence that they did not?

I grew up as a kid loving the Ewoks, actually have the tree village toy set. And am suprised they took so long to introduce a long overdue addition.
However the whole implementation is just wrong. Ewoks should have been a pet or something not this.

The Emperor was building the second death star before the first one was even completed... so in all that time, Ewoks were discovered... by the Empire.

Maybe... maybe not. Just because they were on the same planet, that doesn't mean they were discovered.
With the power of this IP and the amount of time that has passed since launch, this is quite honestly embarrassing. Like I cant even believe this is news on MMORPG.com.
I swear I lose more and more hope for this genre everyday. Devs seems so damn disconnected.

It's really hard to argue that logic. Seriously.
A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

Oh gawd that worked out well. The best part of Age of Conan was that one episode of Big Bang Theory.
Originally posted by Emeraq Originally posted by Astropuyo Originally posted by Nephaerius Originally posted by Astropuyo No the guy talking wookies is 100% correct, anyone who searches it will find it but since you are all a bunch of lazy arses hell bent on making cites. Behind the Scenes George Lucas intended that a primitive race should overthrow the Empire in the final episode, and had originally planned to use Wookiees, but decided against it after it had been established that Chewbacca was proficient with technology. His answer was to create a new race called Ewoks, which is "Wookiee" with the syllables reversed. It is believed that Ewoks are modelled after Hobbits, the short and easily overlooked people who caused the dark lord Sauron's demise in Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings. Lucas chose the word Endor for the moon's planet to honour this, since it is the Elvish name of Middle-earth, the setting of most of Tolkien's stories. Bite his hairy sack he is correct. ------------ How many of you knew Ewok was wookie? Yeah exactly. It cracks me up how some folks can straight up be stalwart when they are wrong. You know who you are. And yes you were wrong. Chances are? Everything you know is wrong !
Whatever, he's right. Doesn't matter if his motivations were wrong. He is 100% correct.
Ewoks were supposed to be wookies.
You want to look at the small stuff that's fine. It's your little world, with your little thoughts.
The over picture is: He is right. Some of you are wrong.
I personally learned a bunch of stuff today!
Then again my head isn't up my ass like alot of you. It's only semi wedged in the cheeks.
According to the information you supplied he is right but he is only right about the fact that wookies were to be used, he is not correct about the reasoning.
With that said, no one can argue that Ewoks are not a part of canon.Regardless of the reasoning, if GL put them in, being the man that created it all, ANYTHING he decides to include whether it be for financial gain, random brainstorming or what have you, he added it, then it is what it is. Like it or not.
No doubt and that's the only information that matters.
The information on wookiepedia supplies more detailed information.
Such as the fact the majority of fans have felt he rewrote them for merchandising.
This isn't me, or him. This is the starwars fandom saying this stuff.
I just look at the base facts: He was correct about ewoks and anyone who says otherwise is just plain silly. Merchandising or not.
He is correct. I deal in absolutes as there is only +/- in this world.

So.... lvl 40 legacy and 1 million credits to get this companion. Nice move to entice people to look on the cash shop to get it. Oh it will be there, wait for it. Since not every one has 1 mil credit or make 1 mil easy, and only subbers can have 1 mil on their pockets.
C3-PO could speak to them when they got caught in RotJ , anyways and other such cannon.
So she isn't a bloody teddy she will kick your asss slowly as a tank meet up and i will sit back and watch you die!!
Don't mess with Treeg!
PSO 4 years , EQOA 4 months , PSU 7 years , SWTOR launch ongoing , PSO2 SEA launch ongoing , Destiny 360 launch ongoing."SWG was not fun. Let it go buddy." quote from iiNoSkillzii 10/18/13The original propoganda pixie dust villain :
It's a sad day indeed when a family is too afraid of reprisals to publicly thank somebody for saving their lives.
Honestly, I am more interested in the full movie of
"Ewoks: The battle of endor". God lol...What a movie...
Since SWTOR has LA's stamp of 'official canon' (which Disney has accepted), guess Ewok in the Old Republic is canon now.
Whether some Star Wars fan thinks it should be or not is irrelevant.
