Well, you gotta figure at a cap of 50, you'd think that the leveling shouldn't be TOO quick. I'm not a big fan of leveling, coming from Shadowbane where leveling was non existent, this should come as no surprise.

Kind of wondering. With the weekend beta invites out now. How does this effect the NDA. Should we/I still be watching how much I divulge?

As I understand it, leveling makes up most of the content in swtor, and with the way they've made leveling sound fun and interesting, it's one of the main reasons I'm so hyped.

As much as I'd love you to give out more info, it's probably best to stick to the NDA if you're not sure.

Per Bioware, the NDA is still in force for beta weekenders (and all others).

Are the side-quests dull then? (If you can't do pure story to the end, I guess I'll end up having to do them)

Interested to see how I like the storyline. Its a tad...subjective; I might think a storyline is gash, but others may love it. Ah well, it has a storyline and thats a start for an MMO.

Well, no they aren't boring actually. They're better than the standard fair of kill x mobs, collect x plants. In fact, I don't remember any of the side quests being like that at all. They just lack the depth, or "flair" of the mainline story quests.

No information on that.



In other news, no more beta weekends until further notice. Talk about a slap in the face to the community following this game.

Gotta figure its gonna be 15 bucks a month.

Explain how this is a slap in the face? I don't remember ever reading that the beta weekends were going to happen EVERY weekend. Keep in mind, this is a game in serious beta testing. As much as people are excited to play the game, and get a sneak peak at it before release, beta does not = free game.

I understand the frustration and eagerness to check the game out, but don't take it out on the devs.

I'm with Jyve (even though he's an Eagles fan). They never said for sure the beta weekends were going to happen EVERY weekend in September although I know that was the general assumption most people were under. Here's how I look at the situation: I'm an optimist - they're rolling out a new build which is the primary reason for there being no tests this weekend - MAYBE, just MAYBE, the first weekend went REALLY well (and I'm telling you, EVERYONE I talk to who has gotten a taste of the beta says the game is DONE, it just needs some minor polish) and they're going to take this new build that's coming out and make that the release build. Like I said, I'm an optimist but it's possible, right?
