    Game is great fun. My PC is being worked on at the moment, so I can't play, but I have been thinking of the future of this game. Listen, I know the game is new and I believe future updates/expansions will include new playable races. The game already includes a good variety but I was thinking of some new ones for the future.


    -Umbaran
    -Nautolan
    -Chagrian
    -Lannik
    -Kiffar
    -Cerean
    -Togruta


    This is Star Wars, the GFFA...so many possibilities. So, what are some species/races you'd like to see?

    Wookiee will never be a playable species. I think that edict came from GL himself.

    The Legacy system will allow you to take a faction/class specific species, complete the story, and then you unlock that species for all classes both factions. Gives completionists the evil incentive of 'you haven't come CLOSE to doing everything yet' :p

    I want to play as Ben Quadrineros' ancestor. :p

    edit: Gungans are coming as a playable species this Christmas as a tie-in to the bluray release of Ep 1 3D and to compete against Mists of Pandera [face_clown]

    Umbarans woulld just look to much like Rattataki.

    Kiffars would just be black, nothing special.

    Cereans are a great idea.

    Lannik have to small of a stature.

    Togruta and Nautolan sound great.

    Oh really? That's awesome because I was a bit disappointed when I couldn't be a Twi'lek bounty hunter. Just seemed so...right.

    True, Umbarans would look a lot like the already existing Rattataki, good point. Have to disagree about the rest, though. Kiffars aren't strictly black (like the Redguard in Skyrim); some Kiffar are black by descendants, like normal humans.

    Take Quinlan Vos [image=http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/2/23/Aayla_and_Quin_Ord_Mantell.jpg] and Sintas [image=http://images.wikia.com/starwars/images/1/11/Sintas_Face.jpg]. Neither are the aforementioned black. I think they would add a bit to the game. That's like saying "Mirialan are just green, nothing special." :p

    Lannik would be awesome because of the small stature, they look awesome and would be great to play as, utilizing that small stature. Rather than having a dwarf (like WoW; assuming you could) we have Lannik. And "Yoda's species" isn't going to make the cut.[face_shame_on_you]

    I would have given anything to have played a Falleen Agent. Fingers crossed they turn up in an expansion (I don't think they're even NPCs yet).

    Playable Gungans? I sure hope they're agents. Or possibly Jedi. :p

    Ohhhhh, now there's a good idea. Falleen would be awesome. Agent would be cool but a Falleen Sith would be awesome, too.

    A lot of stigma attached to Gungans ever since Jar Jar, but I have to admit I wouldn't mind them. Could be interesting.

    A gungan raised on Tython would probably not have that idiotic way of speaking.
    Do other gungans speak like that or just Jar Jar?

    I'd want my Gungan to do the flappy lip thing like Boss Nass :p


    Trandoshans, because they are awesome.

    And more aquatic species like Quarren & Karkarodon.

    Besalisk seem pretty cool, as Clone Wars showed with Master Krell

    They would need a different voice actor just for them.

    Bad idea.

    Was thinking Devaronians would be cool, also.

    If I remember the older builds right, they wanted Devoranians in the game, and had them, along with Togruta(which is why one class has a Togruta comp). Both however had severe issues that made the graphics mess up due to their horns and headtails compared to Twi'leks(which still clip through everything or get covered in a helmet). The two former were thusly removed, but I remember the forums outraged that they took out Togruta, so hopefully we at least get that one back.

    I wanna be an Ugnaught quite frankly. Ugnaught Jedi Sentinal. It's the only way I'd roll a Knight.

    Though an Inquisitor Gungan does sound extremely tempting.

    Edit: Poor Grammar.

    I hope they work out the bugs/clipping issues with those two races, because I'd really enjoy having them.

    I'm confident in future expansions we will get new races.

    Kiffar would be awesome. hell they already frickin' have one in the game as the Smuggler's first damn companion, why leave them out?
