    1 and 3 actually make a certain amount of sense if you buy Bioware's "Put the RPG into MMORPG" stuff. In an MMO, it's most important to have balance, but you can make a strong case that in an RPG it's more important for Snipers to feel like snipers and Jedi to feel like Jedi.

    Which is why Bioware instanced the starting area and also why most guilds will automaticly be put on certain servers.

    Ofcourse after the starting area and once those that buy the game on release date/get it with Xmass will start popping up it will be a hell for the first month until their gametime is up and they find out this kind of MMO isn't for them.

    Yet they still want to balance the game, so its a big no to that.

    ... what the. Where did my post go??? This forum seems to swallow up posts more often than any other I've been to. weird...

    Anyway, yeah I was replying that the RPG part shouldn't be taken a bit too far out of context. imagine getting sniped at from say, Mage tower while you're in Fel Reaver Ruins in EOTS. that would be... lame.

    That depends on your point of view though. If your point of view was, say, through the scope, I can imagine you wouldn't think it so lame

    I'm hoping to get in a few days of playing before Christmas, finishing up playing on the 22nd, then take a week away. Hopefully some of the hysteria will have dies down. With my preorder and Early access that should give me enough time to get over the massive SWTOR boner building up, thus enabling me to enjoy the holidays.

    Although I do hope this isn't true and that what you say is how it will be, I do think though no cross realm features is the best course of action to at least try and help a sense of community, cross realm certainly does help anonymity and an idea of being able to do anything without consequence.
    The official forums is the worst place to judge. Remember, its free to create a SWTOR account. It costs money to buy and play SWTOR. Im not saying we wont have runglockers, but the sheer amount you see on the forums is purely due to the fact anyone can create an account right now.

    :0 I heard the might phase the starting area but I didn't hear about it being instanced! Cheers for the info.

    I certainly hope you're right about the last part. Not that I don't want to shove as much money back at Bioware so they keep putting out, but... "less is more" in some cases. Ahah...

    The first month will be awesome...and busy...200 hours first month?

    For me, it probably will be like most new MMOs that come out. I'll rush to max level, and do endgame with all the other rushers. TOR comes out right when I get done with college, so I should be able to devote a lot of time to endgame. I don't envision it being very different from endgame in other MMOs... I'll farm gear, chat, and maybe try out a couple other classes in between raids. I might dink around with the PvP, which I think will be hilarious because there will almost certainly be a couple broken specs for particular BGs (or w/e you call the TOR equivalent).

    There will be a lot of people taking their time, enjoying the story and whatnot. I plan to skip as much of the story, dialogue, etc. as I possibly can to save time, but I'll take it slower on another character at some point if I feel like it's worth doing.

    Actually, my significant other and I have a running bet - we bet that it might actually be quite fun to resub to wow for the initial couple months SWTOR launches (not that we won't play SWTOR ofc!), simply because the whiners, kids, etc. are all going to flocking to the next big shiny.

    It might actually be a nice community when they leave for a bit. And 4.3 looks so good for us casuals ... :P

    Visual depiction of TOR's release history:



    We're at rave reviews right now, and launch will go through saturation point and overhyped until people realize this game won't "kill WoW" and then we'll see the backlash.

    Cool story bro, I bet your hoping there is a big influx of players so you won't be lonely in your Pokemon Pandamania.

    What your missing is this game has a different following from those others. Even without any WoW players coming over, which alot are who cancelled ages ago due to the game simply lacking enjoyment anymore, there are Star Wars gamers (galaxies and beyond) and BW fans that are going to give this game a try due to the fact that it comes from an amazing publisher with a strong IP.

    DON'T WORRY THOUGH, it is okay for another MMO to be in the market, it is better for all parties involved. I am sure there will still be several millions of players playing WoW when Pandamania sets in. I mean based on their trending and quarterly statement they will probably only lose another 2-3 million subs by mid next year. You keep that mind set that MoP is going to bring back 2-3 million players.

    With TOR coming out in December and 6 other great MMOs slotted for 2012 we will see how Blizzard handles competition.

    I dont get why one MMO game and it's gamers has to hate another like so many states.

    WoW ppl will come and scream bla bla bla
    Are you infact so retarded that you think it's just WoW ppl that acts like that.
    I just have to say OMFG how stupid you are.

    Sure som WoW maniacs might be doing it for a reson but in generally i think anyone that says: "this game suck i'm gonna quit!" is just out to see reactions.
    Hope is there will be someone saying: " Oooh noo dont quit come playing with me and my guild we are awesome"
    They use the feel bad for me instead of asking for help..

    If your stories where true who are the ppl that write i'm gonna quit wow.. if they only do it in other games to start some hate wich players are typing same stuff in wow forums?

    I belive that most ppl said it ones and maybe 1/5 typed it.. but they still play..why?? so far no other MMO has what it takes to compete with WoW.
    Swtor is a game i will try when this new game so cool hysteria has stoped and the game is stable.

    I dont like the fact that just becous i'm gonna try it and if i dont like it i'm one of those ppl who been described so many times..
    I hope we have many MMO competing about players, then we get competition between companys and maybe games/gametime will be cheaper.

    I think the first month is going to be exciting as more and more people sub and fall in love with this game.

    I expect a few bugs here and there, and if you think it's going to be a flawless release you are seriously mistaken. There will be lag issues. It will be overpopulated in the starter zones, and you will be competing with other players for kills/quest items.

    The community will generally be helpful but, as with any game, there will be those individuals who are inconsiderate, retarded, and immature. You will of course have people that constantly bash the game in general chat yet continue to play. You will also see the same questions asked 1 billion times in general chat. For example: When do I learn my AC? Or, when do I get my ship? Enter the people in the second part of the first sentence of this paragraph.
