I bought all the Halos and scarcely touched the multiplayer simply because I enjoyed the story of those so much. Same thing with the KotORs.
So I've been waiting for the conclusion to that story for 7 years. I signed up on swtor.com the first month it went live (Oct 08) and have seen every friday update, logged countless hours of BETA testing, including several level 50 toons and I still can't wait to get this game. Gamers are all different despite being gamers and playing the same game. I'm a story gamer and that's where this game shines.

if your into RP and storyline then your set. if you just HAVE to frag someone (like most of us gamers do) then there's a slight pvp range. ppl who hate wow or are looking for a "supreme graphical experience" should realize that this is NOT what they were after. they were bringing together 2 of the best things together. Star Wars and MMORPGs. & i think they did an excellent job.

If anyone is interested, my guild was interviewed by Darth Hater last night as we're the most longstanding/accomplished guild in testing, we talk a lot about class balance/endgame/pvp. We talk so much that the original plan of it being a transcript was thrown out the window and it's just audio atm:

I've been told I talk too much, that should be more than enough of a hint to figure out which is me tongue.gif

I love the quote, "I hate grinding the get things done!"

My question to you sir, why are you playing an MMO? :facepalm:
post #114 of 133
I played the game for about 6 hours total its a step up from traditional MMOS. I feel like I control my characters destiny as nerdy as that sounds.
I feel that way because I can be a complete dick even as a Jedi and possibly end up as a Sith? Dont quote me there but I noticed it had a dark side/light side bar so Im making a assumption.
The companion system that the game has is really nice but sadly thats all that Im really impressed with. I was really turned off by the graphics Im currently playing Rift and thier engine demolishes the competition right now. So Im probably not going tp purchase this game. Think ill just wait for GW2 Im getting tired of monthly fees anyways

It was awesome! It was just like playing KoTOR only with other people online.

I personally had a great time with the beta weekend. I did have some launcher issues to start off (loading Main Assets, had to delete and completely re-download but I digress), and some of the map issues sucked as well... however, I enjoyed playing the game itself. It felt like a MMO, just like it was supposed to, but with a lot of personality and a great story.

My biggest gripe was how pivotal it was to have my companion with me. I was a Sith Marauder, and the enemies are almost always in groups of 3-4. If I leap in with my companion out on a underworld trading mission, I would get my ass stomped. With companion there, I'd barely lose any health. I'm a Sith, I'm supposed to be AWESOME. My companion should provide a little DPS, maybe some buff characteristic, and the crafting ability. My success shouldn't rely solely on the companion.

This may be true only in beginning of the game, I got to 19 and the third planet and decided I didn't want to go any further into the story. I simply wanted to try some spaceship fighting before I got out of the beta (which btw, I loved Star Fox on N64 so this was right up my alley too).

I'll be playing. My pre-order has been in for months, and I will definitely pay a sub for this.

The guy who had the most feedback played WoW for 7 years and play SWTOR for 6 hours.. End game WoW cannot be compared to the beginning levels of SWTOR. xD

He probably only made it to level 8 or 9 and was still on the main planet.

This video and the combined opinions of the people talking summed up all of my confused thoughts about this game.

Cutscenes are kinda cool... but I really just want to go kill stuff.
Questing/killing stuff is just like wow/everymmo... but the combat is relatively fluid and well paced.
But I really want that lightsaber... except what will I go for after I get my lightsaber?
Gear rewards are kinda fun so I can get stronger... but then I'll just run back to those cutscenes again.
At least bioware stories are really good... but I have to put up all the trash that should have been removed from the MMO genre years ago, but has instead become the defining feature.
