    I remember seeing similar results on SWTOR's official forum too.
    I am surprised too because of teh Han Solo connection alone. The name could have a little to do with it. It has an impact, though how big of an impact varies by player. Light sabres are just really freaking cool too. I think that once people see more and play more that things will change. Cover is still a big unknown to most and that seems like a smugglers best friend.

    Cover seems like a very gimmick mechanic personally. Especially for PvE raid content where you're shooting a giant robot/alien for 5 minutes, what's the point of cover? If other classes will be able to survive without cover, why will a Smuggler need it in raid content?
    My Cracked articles, writing blog, and Twitter.

    The problem with the internet is parallel to its greatest achievement: it has given the little man an outlet where he can be heard. Most of the time however, the little man is a little man because he is not worth hearing.

    No idea, but I am sure they will have some use for it. I am a bit pvp focused atm though and that is how I have been looking at classes.

    Also, I sure as hell hope that pve is more intriguing than many variations of a tank and spank. Avoiding damage has always been a DPS responsibility and taking cover sure as hell classifies. A few key abilities of IA/smuggler also involve cover. I want to be able to find cover to heal as well, just like in real combat.

    There's an ongoing discussion about it on the mirror forums.

    I think I can say this without messing with the NDA rules here, but the main complaint is how Cover is basically like Shamans and totems. But it's worse, because at least totems have like a 40 yard range or something? So whenever you have to move somewhere else, you always have to put up your Cover or else you're at a disadvantage, while other classes don't have to worry about stuff like that.

    High-maintenance things like that are really just a bother imo, like Enhance Shammies where you always have to keep up Lightning Shield. (And at least Lightning Shield follows you around)

    I am torn between SI and IA, it just depends on their healing style really. I will probably make up my mind if I get into the beta and try both out or when the NDA gets removed and people start writing guides on the two classes.

    Anyone know how good healers the smuggler / trooper will be in comparison to the councilar?

    Jedi Knight Guardian, since I mainly like tanking.

    All of them are supposed to be balanced. This isn't necessarily the case in the beta, but it's what devs are aiming towards.

    IA Ops. Because I know healers will be needed at some point.

    SW Jug second. Because I know tanks will be needed at some point.

    Jedi Consular Sage Miraluka or human. I know I'll have a Consular shadow at some point as well either miraluka or human. And as trolls mentioned before Alts will cover the rest as i'm interested in all the ACs at least try them out even though I'm no into melee characters in general I will still play shadows/assassin Knights/warriors.

    I will most likely roll healing Trooper / Bounty Hunter if they are any good at healing when the game comes out.

    It's all about the bounty fellas.

    I dunno, I wouldn't pick a smuggler if I was interested in pvp, at this point. They just seem like a walking time bomb.
    They do need cover in raids because they "have access to special abilities." Which if i am reading it right means there are skills only usuable when in cover and will probably effect their dps. There is more info about it but i dunno whats been confirmed or not so i won't say anymore. However that special abilities thing did come from a page on the official website.

    As for me i wanted to roll smuggler for the longest time but am worried about cover so i decided i'm going to be a Trooper Commando. Really excited about playing it, mostly likely will be dps and heal when needed since all i did in WoW was heal.

    My "Main" will be a Smuggler (They are awesome fun). Then my main alt will be either a Jedi Knight or a Trooper.

    Well I suppose if you get to choose from shooting lightning out of your hands or y'know... I suppose I understand why a huge number of people wanna play Inquisitor. =s

    I'm really torn between the Sith Juggernaut Immortal and Sith Sorcerer Corruption, they both look really interesting.

    I'm amazed at the number of people rolling IA. I didn't expect us to have so many people.
