    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.

    Cutesy crap.  Tired of it all.  How about some MMOs for adults?

    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.

    Really a dumb move.  I guess no one on the staff is a Star Wars fan, its not exactly a secret that Ewoks are disliked by the majority.

    Oh gawd that worked out well.  The best part of Age of Conan was that one episode of Big Bang Theory.

    Just goes to show that just when you think EA/BW can't make any more bad decisions about TOR, they prove time and again that they can. With all the stuff they could spend money on to improve this game, and they choose... ewoks. Yeah........

    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 !

     

     Yeah because that says all the changes were for merchandising reasons.......
     

    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.

    Kinda funny to see the hate of a new companion in a video game. Swtor is considered canon so I guess this ewok is too which probably makes certain fans even more angry.

    All I can say about this is, When does Wildstar come out.
  • rojoArcueidrojoArcueid hell, NJPosts: 6,778Member Uncommon

    THat is one ugly creature.

    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.

    Soooo if Ewok's were around this many years before Ep.6 they are incapable of evolving? They're still just furry savages? This is so cheesy lol.

    What's ironic is I know a few posters above who complain about this being 'childish' when it actually fits into the IP, yet thinks a game where you can buy boxing gloves and wear stuffed mobs as backpacks is the bees knees. Only MMORPG.com for ya.
     
    And before anyone jumps on this comment, I'm not saying GW2 is childish. But if you're going to say something that fits lore is childish and like a Disney themepark and not call out a certain game (cough GW2 cough) for there laughable cash shop items then you need to stop with the bias.
  • HellidolHellidol TACOMA, WAPosts: 405Member Uncommon
    They are really messing with the lore right? From what I was told ewoks were not even known of until much later in the world of Starwars.....so yeah GG if that is right.....

    Wow. This pretty much proves that EAWare knows almost nothing about Star Wars. If they did, they'd realize that pretty much every SW fan over the age of 10 despises Ewoks.

    It's a sad day indeed when a family is too afraid of reprisals to publicly thank somebody for saving their lives.

  • SwaneaSwanea Vegas, NVPosts: 2,368Member Uncommon

    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.
