Nice! I just hope there isn't a monthly fee, or I will be on this like a kid on a chocolate bar!

Now that's an [i]official[/i] thread. (Y) I'm really looking forward to this game. I'm not a huge fan of the MMO genre but BioWare might change that. I loved them since the KOTOR days so I have faith that they'll deliver a solid game.

how new are those screenshots? they look better than the last time i looked. game looks better every time i take a new look. i wonder if the animations have improved that much as well.

this is one of the games i'm looking forward to this year. could be a contender for the first real competition to wow, but i think at worst it will be a decent mmo compared to years of blockbuster "wow killers'" spectacular retention rates.

i post on the guild forums from time to time and wow do these prelaunch guilds that are already recruiting have some strange ideas about mmo's. thinking their "core" of 50-100 members is small and tight knit and will stay interested enough up to and after launch due to having strict forum and vent requirements. there's even a hardcore raid pvp guild claiming they will get all the world firsts in the game based on dubious claims of being in region first wow guilds despite never having played together except in wow p server raiding(LULZ!). then when you make a recruit me post you get spam from 20 different recruiters and you check out their guilds and you have to wonder if they actually read your post at all.

There will definitely be a monthly fee. They haven't said anything about pricing yet though.

I'm glad you liked the thread! :D

BioWare is actually what got my cousin into the MMO genre. I too have a lot of faith they will deliver an awesome experience.

Release date is getting near, so I figured I would go ahead and write a thread. I'm hoping everyone finds it useful!

Let me know if you get in to the beta! I can't wait to hear what people think about it!

Screenshot #1, #2, and #4 are from December 2010. Screenshot #3 is from late November 2010. They're very recent. :)

I think this game has a lot of potential to be amazing! I really hope it does well!

The funny thing is, I noticed the EXACT same thing. I've seen the most ridiculous threads that I seriously just laugh at. It gets funny, it really does! :laugh:

Well its an mmo, mmo's typically have either monthly fee or micro-transactions but jury's still out on those, mainly I guess because initially you can make more off the monthly subs.

Eitherway, very much looking forward to this game but im still not sold on it being an mmo. Looks more like theyve made an awesome MASSIVE single player game where you occasionally work with other players if you choose.

bring on my sith toon!!

Also wouldnt be holding your breathe for the original 2011 launch date. Likely wont be out till Q3 maybe Q4.

Those trailers were fantastic, especially the second one. It makes me think how much better the prequels could have been :cry:

Well, if i were to trust anyone to make a WoW contender it would be Bioware.

that's my thinking too. i don't like every bioware game, but they are quality dev studio withe financial backing and blessing of their publisher to do it.


unlike wow, swtor is going to need to be very polished and live up to 100s of hours of playtime per class.


ofc there's always going to be the power gamers who speed level to "endgame" within a month or less and complain there is no content there.


personally i'm looking for something that will keep me interested past the first month.


btw i plan on rolling a jedi sentinel. i would prefer a single saber jedi but not into being a tank. my alt will be a smuggler. unless i get pushed into rolling sith inwhich case i'll go sith warrior main and bounty hunter alt.

I'm really struggling to decide which class I want to be. At one point, I had cut it down between Sith Warrior and Jedi Knight. Then, there was an update on their site that really made Trooper seem like an amazing experience. So now, I'm back at having to decide between three classes. :laugh:

plenty of time to decide and if you get into beta it'll make things easier, not that the first few levels really show what a class is a bout typically.

personally i just like the idea of playing a jedi, even if tend to suck at melee classes in mmo's.

Monthly fees don't really cost that much compared to the time an average MMO player spends on the game in a month. The good thing about the fees is they kill spammers pretty well, a fact which is then completely nulled once free trials come out. :p

Its got to be some sort of melee class for me, preferably a lightsaber weilder

Otherwise I'm giving serious thought to a character that is good at crafting/jury rigging and handy with a blaster - in fact I might do this first

If you're in to crafting, you should check [url="http://swtor.com/info/systems/crew-skills"]THIS[/url] out!

[url="http://swtor.com/info/holonet/classes/smuggler"]Smuggler[/url], [url="http://swtor.com/info/holonet/classes/trooper"]Trooper[/url], [url="http://swtor.com/info/holonet/classes/imperial-agent"]Imperial Agent[/url], and [url="http://swtor.com/info/holonet/classes/bounty-hunter"]Bounty Hunter[/url] are the blaster wielding classes.

Definitely continue to give serious thought about what class you want to choose, as I think they mentioned at one point in time that you will NOT be allowed to swap classes.

well you can always reroll but at level 10 you choose your advanced class like for jedi knights it's guardian(tank) or sentinel (mdps) and after that you are stuck with your AC on that toon.

also the crafting looks cool. queue up your crafting plan on your ship and go back to questing and a few hours later you have some super cool items to wear or sell. i might actually craft in this game.

Crafting is definitely something I want to get really experienced with. A lot of money can definitely be made with Crew Skills! :D

I'm hoping this Friday, they'll have another update on Crew Skills. There is still a lot to be revealed about it.

Well although I never got into the first one, I signed up for an account just in case I do get into this one this time around. That, and I was able to get DirtyLarry as my name, so I am happy about that. (Y)

I'm pretty sure BETA hasn't started yet. When you make an account, you select the option stating that you are willing to participate in the BETA when it begins. When it does, they'll notify you if you've been accepted.

I did some research. According to the FAQ, it hasn't. I guess it hasn't been updated yet.
[IMG]http://i52.tinypic.com/xbck87.png[/IMG]

According to Joystiq though, it has. This article is from July 2010. [[url="http://www.joystiq.com/2010/07/09/star-wars-the-old-republic-beta-testing-underway/"]Link[/url]]

My apologies. :)
