SWTOR Dev Blog Discusses Galactic Reputation System Coming in 1.7

In the latest SWTOR developer blog, Jesse Sky, Lead Flashpoints and Operations Designer, discussed the new Galactic Reputation system being introduced in Game Update 1.7.

The system will provide a new way for players to advance their characters, tracking your reputation with each of the galaxy’s major organizations. Players will gain Reputation Points and advance through six ranks — Outsider, Newcomer, Friend, Hero, Champion, and Legend — and there’s no way to lose reputation.

As your Reputation Rank increases, new rewards will become available to you, similar to with Light/Dark Side Points and Social Rank. Throughout the galaxy, you will find Reputation Vendors associated with each organization. Special rewards with Reputation Rank requirements can be purchased from these vendors. Items and equipment with a Reputation Rank requirement can only be purchased, used, or equipped if you meet or exceed the rank requirement.

When you achieve specific Reputation Ranks, you will earn a new type of reward called a Legacy Title, which can be used in place of your Legacy surname title. Reputation will be tracked across your entire Legacy.

Do you like the sound of this addition? I think new features are great, but doesn’t SWTOR already have enough things to level up? Levels, legacy levels, social rank, valor, light/dark side points…

Sounds just like more random filler to me.

Here is just one of the many problems. They are concentrating on things people don’t really want, instead of fixing problems that have been around for a long time. Some bugs that I reported over 10 months ago, are still around. People will steal from you and Bioware/EA says there’s nothing they can do about it. So sad.

This game has no hope in the hands of Eaware.
