I want to be able to walk into enemy territory and walk around unnoticed (without my name being flagged hostile ... usually with yellow or red text) ... and then if I'm *discovered* ... then have the fun begin ... that would be epic. I love the idea of ordinary citizens going about their business and the player being able to blend in when necessary (or spy).

It's an artificial pvp flag ... you could play it safe and rarely have those experiences or you could play it more aggressive ... either way, your play style comes with certain risks and benefits.

Ive been watching this like a hawk since they announced, on top of following it for a few years now, and really at this point in skeptical until we really start to see more concrete answers about the game iteslf. everything i've read is pretty vague. sounds good on paper though, not sure if the pvp system is going to be that fantastic though

Star-knitting and star-dancing? That's nice, I take it the author is referring to the non-combat aspects of SWG, which, whether he appreciates them or not, brought a lot of innovation to a genre that has been sorely lacking it since, oh, forever.

The kill 'em all crowd that infests the MMO space like rats on a sinking ship have driven that kind of innovation out of these games, and that's unfortunate, almost as unfortunate as reading yet another article that says absolutely nothing about this new game.

Do us all a favor, Massively, and IGN, and all you other game journalists who think anything that spills out of an executive's mouth is worthy of an article: enough already.

When there are some details to report, report them. So far, in the deluge of 'coverage' this site has devoted to SW: TOR, the endearing refrain has been 'we aren't commenting on that yet.'

Amateurs and fanboys, the lot of you.

Sorry, but if you thought a Star Wars game revolving around tradeskills and cantina dancing was going to do anything but crash and burn you're delusional. People play those games to be the equivalent of Luke Skywalker the Jedi or Han Solo the Bounty Hunter, not Uncle Owen the Moisture Farmer.

It's also called Star Wars. Each of the movies had quite a bit of screen time dedicated to space combat. Not one, but two had climatic endings involving the destruction of a planet busting, hyperspace traveling, "millions of voices cried out in terror" space station appropriately dubbed the "Death Star". Let's hope BioWare launches SWTOR complete with space combat ranging from dogfights between Aurek tactical strikefighters and Sith interceptors to larger tactical bombing raids against and Inexpugnable-class and Interdictor-class command ships!

ive only recently heard about this game from what ive read it all sounds nice but it also sounds like what was being said about SWG before it was comming out. i played SWG for about 3 years from launch day. And i really hope they learn and fix A LOT of the flaws that were inherent and rampant in SWG. as many flaws as that game may have had it was still an AMAZING game and i cant wait for this game. I was a part time crafter and entertainer in SWG i went through all those professions as "lame" as some ppl may have thought those were they were definitly necessary to the game and HUGE part of forming and maintaing the community.

~iGGy~

Great review Massively 07, 1st of all this review is fine, I do not expect get everything from every article written about something, it's better then fine, it's not meant to be the only article ever written.

Speaking of Heroics, if CoX can be so awesome and fun in PvP and PvE
Then SWTOR and years later will be fine and even better. :)

It's not going to be anything like that other old decrepit sw mmo, if
Played it again and it was the best we could get back then but today
is different, games are getting better now.

There are much better ideas going around now the MMORPG’s have.

IMO There are MMO’s out right now were the action is great and PvP
and PvE is plenty awesome but then their actual world is lacking, the
only thing I would be worried about is if the SWTOR world would have
Plenty of quality of life things to make it feel less then dead

Actually sorry about using the word "fine" by that I mean this article is well written and tells us allot more info then I knew before I read it, if some of you do not want to appreciate that then that's cool but I do, so thanks Massively and Mr. Zenke 07 I solute you!

If I thought these articles were not pretty darn awesome and was appreciative of them I would not be any ware near here reading them.
