    Citys in The Old Republic?

    I understand that there will be Coruscant for the Republic, and Dromund Kaas for the Empire,

    But what was the neutral city, somewhere in Hutta? (Sorry guys, my Star Wars lore is TERRIBLE)

    So basically, i wan to know the main 'hubs' of the world.

    'Neutral' is a stretch. Only one area of Nar'Shadaa is a sanctuary, the rest is one big FFA.

    Which makes more realistic sense. You can't have both factions in the one city and not expect something to happen. As much as I loved Shattrath, it just was bland because there was no communication with the other faction at all.

    Glorious battle and world PvP will return! It almost makes me want to roll on a PvP server. I'llprobably have a toon on one anyway!

    World PVP is overrated.

    Most of the time it's just ganking. Real world pvp rarely happens.

    Anywhoooo... Nar Shadaa should be awesome.

    In WoW sure, do we have even the slightest clue whether it'll end up this way in TOR? Not yet, from what I've heard there are some rather large PvP areas on level 50 planets where world PvP in definitely encouraged. Hopefully this is the case :P

    The problem here is that there's bound to be a ginormous sith population.

    Well yeah there's always going to be those kinds of people. To be honest I actually enjoyed leveling through STV on a PvP server (and this was true even in Wrath) running and dodging level 80 killing machines.

    But the issue of his I was calling flawed was how he just took how world PvP in WoW is right now and straight transplanted it over to SWTOR. Note his usage of present tense versus future tense. We know world PvP is basically just cheap ganking in WoW at the moment, but we shouldn't assume that it's going to be the exact same way in TOR when it launches.

    There is a killer galaxy map on the SWTOR site http://www.swtor.com/info/holonet/galaxy-map that will give you an idea of the planets. You can cross reference for famous cities to get an idea, but Im sure it falls under NDA at this time so no one can tell you for sure.

    As we understand it, without breaking NDA, it is very Manaan-like, the way Nar Shadaa is run, that is.

    I think many people underestimate how many players will be going jedi, just because a poll on a website has the empire in the lead, doesn't mean it'll be true in the game. Most people tend to pick the good guys.

    It's run by a bunch of fish people who can't make up their minds what side they're on? I feel better already.

    The reason I think World PvP will do well in this game is that I have heard BW repeadtedly state that they plan on having enticing rewards for all PvP styles which means world PvP is a viable gearing/playing style. You won't feel like you're wasting your time by not participating in bgs.

    Most "so called" Bad-asses, and those that wish to be considered so, will be rolling Sith,

    Those that opt to avoid all of those people may Republic by default......... ha ha



    (is playing Evil that worth it?, it's your call at this stage)



    :P
