My semi-realistic hopes for... Droid skins?

Are Droid skins included in the CW season customization drop?

If not, they should be. It's not like there's tons of options for droids, anyway.

Here are my semi-realistic hopes for Droid skins:

SEPARATIST ASSAULT CUSTOMIZATION
  • Sparking battle damage - Common / 5k
  • Mismatched chassis color - Uncommon / 10k - rust if everyone else is tan, or vice-versa
  • BX-Series Commando Droid - Assault level 60, Epic / 40k - black with yellow markings, white eyes, deep voice like the B2

SEPARATIST HEAVY CUSTOMIZATION
  • Heavy Security - Common / 5k - red shoulder markings on dark chassis
  • Heavy Security Squad Leader - Uncommon / 10k - red full-torso markings on dark chassis
  • HK-Series Assassin Droid - Heavy level 70, Legendary / 80k - as per HK-47

SEPARATIST OFFICER CUSTOMIZATION
  • B1 Droid Sergeant - new default replacing current Droid Officer - green markings
  • B1 Droid Lieutenant - Officer Level 30, Uncommon / 10k - yellow markings on arms and chest, but not head
  • Quarren Captain - Officer level 50, Legendary / 80k -
  • OOM Droid Commander - Officer level 60, Rare / 20k - yellow markings on arms, chest, and head, as current Droid Officer
  • Neimoidian Captain - Officer level 60, Legendary / 80k -
  • TX-Series Tactical Droid - Officer level 70, Legendary / 80k -

SEPARATIST SPECIALIST CUSTOMIZATION
  • Head markings, thin - Common / 5k
  • Leg markings, thin - Common / 5k
  • Arm markings, thin - Common / 5k
  • IG-80 Assassin Droid - Legendary / 80k - as per IG-88

SEPARATIST ENFORCER CUSTOMIZATION
  • Bluish B2 Super Battle Droid - Enforcer level 10, Uncommon / 10k -
  • Black B2 Super Battle Droid - Enforcer Level 20, Legendary / 80k -

    I hope Dice is paying attention to the ideas people like you and @meshugene89 have for customization.

    Thanks, I hope so too. There's a goldmine of good ideas here. This post isn't even particularly good, I just threw it together this morning between waking up and going to work.

    I had an idea of having Droid markings, similar to the legion markings for the Clones. You know, how the Clone Wars series shows various different paint jobs for droids, apparently based on what section of the army they're in. Grey with green markings, grey with blue markings, tan with green markings, etc. But not only was it difficult to describe individual skins from that, but it probably would be better to have those sorts of markings be defaults for certain maps, same as the Clone legions.
  • New droid models more likely to be reinforcement types, but otherwise a perfect start
    Top favorite heroes and villains missing:
    Ahsoka, Rex, Padme, Cody, Mace
    Bane, Thrawn, Ventress, Jango, Savage

    Also, nice suggestions! I’d prefer to see the BX as a reinforcement (not likely), but I wouldn’t mind if it ends up as a skin

    Thanks! Yeah I agree, I'd much rather see the ARC Trooper and the BX as a new Recon reinforcement. That would be amazing. But failing that, having them as skins is acceptable if they're pricey and require high level so you don't just have teams full of them.

    God work Jack!

    Neomodian like me!!

    But i would like that the BX-Series Commando Droid is a new class not only skin.

    Some ideas:

  • I'd tolerate deviating slightly into non-canon area to have a Caprica 6 skin. :wink: :heart:
  • Good work Jack!
    Thanks!

    But i would like that the BX-Series Commando Droid is a new class not only skin.
    I agree. Same with the ARC Trooper, I want to see them both in a new Recon reinforcement class, along with the Rebel Infiltrator and the Imperial Storm Commando. But failing that, I wouldn't mind seeing them as a max-level Assault skin. =)

    Nice. Lots of options there.

    Can we move onto the topic of commando skins?
    I would really like to see some of the "diplomatic" color schemes for these guys, they're so awesome!

    Hnnnggh...

    A thread like this makes it feel all the harder to move past the Clone Wars era for a bit.

    Some of the other eras need some focus to change up the pace. But I love the suggestions in here.

    I've wanted a nicer paint-job for my tin can since beta...

  • More skins are needed.
