Would people like it or dislike it is the Chiss species were available for Imperial officer customization?

    They need to be Male Specialist Race/Gender Option.

    They fit the role well in SWTOR.

  • I'm thinking no. Add Thrawn as a hero perhaps, but in general the Empire was super prejudiced.

    I wouldn't be overly fussed if it happened, I just think it would be really weird to see a bunch of aliens working as imperial officers.

    The Empire was incredibly xenophobic, only humans were allowed to serve. Thrawn was an exception because he was a tactical, ruthless genius whom the Emperor liked, but no other Chiss or other alien species served in such high ranking positions in the Empire.

    Could be cool, but only as a high level thing. Maybe if they added a class prestige system, it could be as a final prestige reward (Epic tier prestige)?
    And is it just me, or does that top one look like Tom Hiddleston?

    As an epic skin for the empire and FO officer absolutely
    The exotic skin colors for our current aliens like blue Quarren and super cool aliens like Mon Cala, Togruta, Chistori, Chiss and the like should be epic skins.

    Haven't heard of that one, spelling mistake? Imma search it now though.
    Twi'leks could have loads of different skin colours, as could Mon Calamari, Quarren, Rodians, and probably some of the other aliens too. Ithorians could be cool as a Heavy class head (or other classes, but they do have quite a distinctive build which kinda suits the Heavy in my head).
    Edit: Oh, those guys! They're very cool-looking actually, kinda dinosaur people. I can imagine that being an Assault or Officer.

    Thrawn as a hero would be cool, 20 blue officers running around would not. Unless I was the one blue officer running around ;)

    Yeah they aren’t very well known anymore, but I think they’d be a very cool option especially since they’ve reserved the Trandoshans for heroes(Bossk). If they were made available I’d definitely pay money to play as one. Who wouldn’t want to play as a dino-man? Ithorians would be great! I’d like them explore more aliens like those when they start adding epic infantry skins.
    As far as Chiss go it wouldn’t be hard to implement since they are just blue with red eyes, and there’s a number of other near-humans that would also be simple to add since it’s basically a palette swap and modeling a face isn’t hard. Pau’ans, Rattataki, and Miraluka especially would be very popular I’m sure. I know people would like me would love playing specialist while being a species that are blind lol

    Yeah, there's a reason he was more or less exiled to the furthest reaches of the Outer Rim despite being one of the most impressive military mind in the entire navy. He was an alien, and the Empire was heavily Xenophobic and sexist, which is why him and Admiral Daala being there were crazy exceptions because Thrawn was beyond intelligent and Daala had a very close relationship with Tarkin.

    No, just give us Thrawn

    I'd like that but he seems to be more of a tactian then a fighter. And in canon all he has done is let Ezra and his merrymen get away.

    Yeah but in the EU other Chiss did serve. That is where I got the first picture. Also there were Norgi assassins and now we have Inquisitors who are mostly aliens but still have authority. The Empire also had an alien serving as the Grand Viziar. The chiss are one of the more iconic aliens in star wars, more iconic then some of the current alien skins IMO so I think alot of people would welcome the option and the Empire is the only in game faction that any served.

    Wasn't he out there preparing for the Vong invasion? Also just as an excuse why he wasn't present in the movies besides the fact he wasn't created yet?

    Add one more to the roster of people who say no to this one. I've considered it many times over the last few years, but I keep coming back to saying no to this idea. Even if you perpetuate the old Legends idea that the Empire employed some Chiss, they still would have been one in a million at best.

    Bottom line, the Empire are xenophobic and speciesist human supremacists, and magnifying an ultra-rare exception that isn't even part of Canon just undermines that crucial aspect of the Imperial identity.

    But we don't have the old EU, do we? In the current EU the Chiss reside in the Unknown Regions and the only one that has been seen within the known galaxy is Thrawn, therefore having Chiss as a skin option in this game takes away the uniqueness of Thrawn.

    I don't see why EU stuff can't be used, they have done it before with the bryer pistol and the TL 50. Thrawn being a tactican would be hard to implement as a hero and the Chiss are very iconic. The resistance and rebels having Maul's species as a skin doesn't take away from the uniqueness of Maul.

    Thrawn (or his kind) would be nice to see in SWBF17.
    But as with all Rebels content I doubt it will be added.

    Might as well. Immersion is definitely not on their list of priorities, so why not?
    Would be a nice touch if they brought in the SWTOR agent actor to play him, but that may be asking for much.

    I don’t get your angle. They should have been in the last game, and were requested countless times. It’s a colour pallet change.

  • No to Chiss Officers. Maybe Thrawn Villian. It would quickly evolve into the majority of Officers running around with blue heads I think. A Chiss invasion.

    True. Not sure that it's enough influence to get his own addition into the game though. (As much as I'd appreciate his presence in the swbf2. . . I ship him with Maul. Because I bet Thrawn would be able to apreciate the Sith's body art.)
