The rivalry never ends, a copy cat update?
 
Star Trek vs Star Wars... /sigh

SWTOR just announced they intend to add a rep system to their game, and that rep system looks very similar to STOs version. So far the only noticeable differences is they have vendor NPCs and it crosses through the legacy systems to all of a persons characters.

I'm not sure what STO can or will pioneer out for new content, but I doubt a legacy system would help STO. There is only 3 character classes, and then it would seem a little too much like copy catting for what few things that could be allowed to share across a players account between characters. Though it would still be nice to have an engineer that could throw plasma grenades and slam a radioactive field on an enemy...

So much for the hopes that rivalry would tone down after Disney bought the rights to SW.

Even though a Ferangi will realize that rivalries are good for business...

What are ya'lls opinion on what STO could add to the game that would still be Star Trekishly pioneered, without seeming like a copy cat ST vs SW Rivalry addon?

Do you know what I like most about SWTOR? They don't trash talk STO over there.

SWTOR's reputation is a lot different than STO's by the looks of their website.

As for copycatting, I remember playing a few games before STO cam out that based your reception by a faction on a reputation system.

I especially remember a space game with Bruce Campbell's VO work in it.

Be kinda cool to hear his voice in this game as an admiral or something. :)

I would have to agree. I don't go to the SWTOR official forums much, I go to a different SWTOR site, and most people in that forum are Trek fans as well as Star Wars.

Both are very different games, I played SWTOR for about a month. I've always been more of a Star Trek fan tho...

/sigh...

So much for asking about idea's...

The very first post is a comment about trash talk and had no innovative ideas.

Now I am reminded why I stopped posting altogether years ago...

Too easy to start a flame war, to quick to get off topic.

STO, and SWTOR do have one thing in common...Their chats are always full of crap talking about real world nonsense.
