SWTOR teases next week’s raid bosses, seeks Galactic Starfighter feedback

    
9
Next week on July 11th, Star Wars: The Old Republic is going to unleash carnage with Update 5.3. The summer content patch will  change up many of their classes and pit them against the robotic “Sisters of Carnage,” Ivela and Esne.

It also looks as if the development team is thinking about working on its Galactic Starfighter system in the future. On the forums, the team solicited player feedback for the system in three specific areas: ship balance, itemization, and friction points.

“Galactic Starfighter, like all group content, is a system that we want to see being used by as many players as possible,” the team said. “This thread is to discuss the friction points that you see in GSF. Whether it stops you from playing frequently, or from playing at all, we want to understand that friction.”

Get a quick glimpse of Update 5.3’s Sisters of Carnage raid boss after the jump!

1> No PVE = No Me.
2> The god damn “Sniper” ship classes ran me off from what was there.

If they made it into a X-Wing/Tie-Fighter style sub-game with PVE missions then yes, I’d be interested but PVP is the issue for me.

Galactic Starfighter is a minigame about getting blown out of the sky by long range sniper ships that you never even see. The world is a big place and there must be a market for this game somewhere, but I’m not a part of it. It’s SWTOR’s single least interesting feature in my opinion.

If they make GSF relevant again, I will be back in. The space missions (yes, even the on rails ones) really stood out for the game and were the parts I enjoyed the most. When they went down the single player story mode, I lost interest, as they seemed to neglect a lot of their cooler systems, but man… GSF was a blast.
