The one thing I used to like about Star Wars Galaxies (back in the day) was that you actually had to do a lot of work to become a Jedi and get a lightsaber and junk.. How are they possibly expecting any other class balance on each faction than 90% 'The Class that gets a lightsaber', and 10% everything else?

Flatly refuse to be a Jedi. I miss my creature handling days, running about Coronet with 2 little kitties, and a big fuck off Rancor, was fun! Used to take the kitties into the local buffing bar and have them dance with the players there; 'Awww isn't it cute!?' were the cries, then the Rancor come in and block the view...

Oh, and you get your own ship where your NPC "companions" hang out whilst you're on solo missions etc. :D

Also, the new build has a bunch more stuff in it. Darth Hater (http://www.darthhater.com/articles/swtor-news/19732-patch-changes-11-29-11) has details on that too. It's got 600 new crafting schematics among other things.

so if you create a guild before launch you dont get to pick which server you will end on?

Flury
05-12-2011, 05:47 PM
Correct. Guilds created pre-launch can specify what type of server they would like to be on(PVE/PVP/RP).

It has pro's and cons, but with larger guilds and server balance it's quite an ok way to start things up. People signed up pre-launch to a guild will be autoplaced in that guild on same server, if you have 10 members it probably doesn't make a lot of difference. Hive is now at 119 members, so it just make that a lot easier.
It might be quite good for overall server balance at start for PVP servers as well.

Alia

at gamespot they made a post that seems interesting involving the beta.

The recent public testing phase of the massively multiplayer online role-playing game Star Wars: The Old Republic attracted 2 million volunteers, according to EA. The publisher says more than 725,000 unique players joined the game over the Thanksgiving weekend, making it "one of the biggest beta tests in history." Some 2.4 million gamers had registered in advance on the game's official website, with 2 million later signing up for the public beta.


Testers averaged 12 hours each over Thanksgiving.
The Old Republic publisher shared details of the MMORPG's recent test period at the annual Global Media and Communications Conference hosted by financial services firm UBS. Each beta tester played an average of 12 hours over the postholiday three-day weekend, says EA, with more than 9 million hours cumulatively played over that stretch.

EA chief financial officer Eric Brown told the conference that this high "preregistered and built-in" demand for the product would mean a launch advertising campaign considerably different from those for other high-profile EA titles, with the focus instead on attracting new customers for the long term ("two to four years") and the critical percentage of players who renew their subscription from month to month.

The Old Republic is preparing for launch on December 20 in North America and Europe. Some analysts have estimated that the game will bring in millions of subscribers, while others suggest declining World of Warcraft subscriptions could boost EA's subscriber numbers, with half of surveyed World of Warcraft players saying they intend to buy The Old Republic.

Fact is right now, from someone who is in the game playing on Nightmare Lands, swtor.hu changed their mind and are not on the server, and the only Russians I have come across are on the Republic side in a guild called Star Wolves.

The guilds I have been grouping with are pc gamer / UK / lux etc, anyway, surprising to me how so much faith was put into anonymous posters on forums.

So, does the game really deserve it's current nickname, TORtanic?

Don't get me wrong - I haven't played it, I haven't seen it, I haven't really even read about it, so I'm also NOT judging it.

I've just heard a lot of rumours and a great deal of them have been... well, a bit negative, to say the least. Some are probably bullshit, as expected on random rumours (especially the ones in internet) but there must be some truth in them, as I bump into them daily. I will probably have to check into the matter myself later on today out of curiousity, but I saw this thread while visiting the SSE forum from a moment's impulse and decided to ask from someone I might have known back in the day in here. Hearing it from someone even remotely or vaguely familiar does have more of an impact than reading it on a lifeless review.

Anyway, I've heard that:

A) People are being banned from visiting areas that they are allowed to visit in the game. The reason for banning is that they are doing it too early in the game (I'd imagine that there is a lot more to it if this is even true?).

B) The cancel subscription button disappeared from the reach of players and people couldn't get out from the game even if they wanted. There were other means to do so naturally, like via telephone, but people were claiming that they would have had to go through preposterous amounts of time while trying to get through, and giving up after being too exhausted to stay on the line.

Also, I read somewhere that other people were trying to help the aforementioned people by providing them with direct links to a site where you could cancel your subscription, which lead to the people being banned just for giving out the link (I really cannot believe this one, but it's all over the place).

C) People being banned from selling some items for a too high price (I'd assume that they're abusing some broken items and selling them to NPCs for a asburdly high amounts of money, which obviously isn't meant to be the real value?).

D) Something about micro loading screens in pvp. I can't really recall this one as I was just going through the stuff while not really paying attention to it, but I think the effect of the alleged micro loading screens was compareable to lagging.

E) And the last part, the unbearable amount of bugs and errors (what new game doesn't have them? I know WoW had them and went on having after every patch, but I guess the sheer volume of them in TOR is what the people are whining about).



So, is this all bullshit, classic half-truths or the truth and nothing but the truth?

a) That's the "im innocent and didnt know what I was doing" version, they were in fact clearly exploiting.

b) It's the first I heard of it, but I googled and its reported by sources such as PC Gamer so it must be a problem. I do know that nobody in Hive (the biggest guild on the server) is cancelling their subscription.

c) Haven't heard anything about that.

d) Straight after patch there were some problems with UI reloading during pvp. It lasted about a day.

e) No. There's less than WoW had. There's bugs, absolutely. Some are frustrating. The only people who find it unbearable are the people who never played an MMO at launch, except maybe Rift. And Rift was much smaller and had 1/10th the amount of players.


I doubt anyone here on SSE will say anything except they love this game, because we're not 12 year old kids and we've been through launches of WoW and the first expansions. The subscription thing does seem like a legitimate bad problem though.

I had no problems cancelling the other day once I got through the "waiting room" of the web site.

And I agree, the game is pretty well polished compared to other MMOs at launch.

I have found I've used /stuck more in the last two weeks than I used it in 7 years of WoW...I keep jumping down into areas and getting glitched...mostly because I don't follow the path and like to free run it :)

There is also a lot of running, Coruscant is especially bad for this...but when you compare it to that god awful quest chain in Darkshire where you had to run back and forth between Abercrombie and the town, it's not so bad.

All in all I'm enjoying it, I have 3 mid level 20s characters so I'm nowhere near end game yet. I spent the last few days learning about the crafting skills, cos the choices I made at the start weren't very well informed and I ballsed up a bit.

Alright, thanks. Seems like the internet rumours mostly turned out to be what one might expect.

On another note. If there happen to be any lost and guildless Empire players around with interest in raiding....

Hive is recruiting more players for a 2nd 16man raidsquad, mainly DPS.
Currently running 1x 16m, 1x 8m. Started hardmodes last week for the first time and gotten 4/5 Eternity Vault(tonight 5/5) and hopefully some Karagga's palace kills in as well.
