hmmm i never had a problem with jedi (didn't actually play one reguarlly prefered my sword/doc or bh) and wastegate i totally disagree with u on the player city thing, for one thing even when player cities were big there were always tonnes of people to be found in coronet, theed, kaadara, bestine mainly because of buffers and entertainers, if anything buff bot's and the removal of the requirement to get buffed is what hurt that little part, but even then the major cities were still packed.
Publish 28 notes are getting discussed on the forums atm, player hunting is back i think i'll be back in a publish or 2 to see the changes.
