Probably all that needs to be said, but I’ll elaborate anyway. ;)

As excited as we all are for the clone Wars new heroes coming down the pipeline, I couldn’t help feeling slightly saddened that this meant Old Ben would most likely not be coming. But there is still hope... and that would be in the form of Old Ben skins. With the addition of young Han and Lando, there must be Old Ben skins for the PT Kenobi. He is a must include now that these skins have been released and depict entirely different looking and sounding heroes of the same name.

We cannot have PT Obiwan without his wiser mentor, later in life self. Old Ben is the last of the OT main characters not in the game. Alec’s depiction of the former master, is still the only portrayal to earn an Oscar and Golden Globe nomination. The noble sacrifice of giving own life so Luke could continue his journey, is one of the most iconic moments in movie history. Many among us wish to hear the kind old man’s voice and wise words while battling The Empire.

Old Ben and Farmboy Luke on Mos Eisley... The old man taking on Vader in HvV. These are the things I hope to be able to see and play out in this game. Two skins are all that is needed to give Sir Alec his proper due that should have been in the first game. Even if he had a love/hate for his character, most fans do not.

Here’s some potential call outs, emotes and dialogue:
"You make me look positively young."
"Now then, let's see whos the better swordsman." - (To Dooku)
"It's not to late to retreat you know."
"Let's get this over with, shall we?"
"You're in over your head you know."
"Come.. Test your skills."
"Let's see what your master has taught you." (To any Sith)
"So much Anger" (To any Sith)
"We should've left you on tatooine." (To Vader)
"You're only a master of evil darth."
"You wont be winning this time, Darth."
"Not bad for an old man like me."
"You shouldnt have left your guard down like that."
"You have some skill it seems."
"Become one with the force."
"Nice try, but that wont get you anywhere."
“The Emperor, we’d best be cautious”
"I must face darth vader myself"
"I feel his presence ... I must face darth vader"
"A great distubance in the force”
“Use the Force”

    The best emote was left out...
    2011 Krayt Dragon Call. (or a random cycle of each changed version)
    I'd happily play 'Ol Ben Kenobi.

  • Old Ben should be his default skin honestly. I've been waiting for him since BF2015-- 3 years to finally recreate this scene...

    Well if Obi Wan is put at the same power level as Luke and Yoda, you’ll be recreating this scene a lot:

    Lmao too true.
    ...Btw that should be his death animation (Old Ben only)

    As a Kenobi connoisseur, I approve as well. But I think Old Ben should be the legendary/epic skin with PT Obi Wan as the default since it is a PT season.

    I also agree with this and it's clearly going to be this way seeing as Obi is coming out in a CW season. I was mostly joking around and trolling at what I said, although I have been waiting 3 years to play as Old Ben, so he better be at least show up as Legendary skin with new voice lines and everything.

    I mean it'd be nice, and hopefully does come, but it's definitely not on most peoples priority list.
    II or III should be default, with Ben as a legendary, depending on his voice actor his clone Wars skins might be legendary as well.

    While Old Ben is top priority to me now that we’re at least getting a Episode 2/3 version... I would love it if they did at least one skin from all four movies.

    Here's hoping! The last OT lightside user I care about, a Legendary Old Ben outfit is hopefully on their roster for Season 3 skins : )

    I'd love to see that. Old Ben skin in the GCW matches, General Kenobi in the Clone Wars matches...

    General Kenobi would fight different than Old Ben, but maybe they could account for that as a Legendary skin.

    Azzatru had a mod video that showed a mod that turned Luke into Old Ben on Mos Eisley. Robes and hood and everything. That was pretty cool. I can't find the video at the moment but I'll keep looking.

    I bet they won’t change his play at all, but if Obi is tank-ish, a skin with an Alec Guinness voice impersonation will be perfectly fine with me.

    If you find that video please post it here...haven’t seen it myself.

  • Great thread. Old Ben is a must.
  • I want to slice-and-dice irksome aliens and mind-whammy weak minded Stormtroopers in the streets of Mos Eisley.
    If at all possible, I want an Old Ben skin to drop with the A New Hope versions of the main OT cast. Farmboy Luke, Scoundrel Solo, and Princess Leia. All of them on Mos Eisley. It'd be beautiful.

    And yet I have EVERY doubt in my mind that we won't have an old Ben Skin, we didn't get old Luke, Leia, or Han soooooo....
  • I'd rather have all his clone wars skins than an " Old Ben " one. I realize I'm in the minority.

    One of the devs said(something to the effect of) there was a legal issue with Alec’s estate.. told this to a former forum members face, in fact. Many of us are hoping Old Ben doesn’t get the snub again.

    I remember they also said Ben would be too similar to Luke... you know, because he’s a lightsaber user. :s
