My problem with Huttball is that Bioware didn't go all out with it.

If you're gonna add in some weird immersion breaking sport like warzone, you might as well go all the way and have teams, seasons, mascotts, uniforms, no lightsabers or other weapons, etc. The trailer makes it seem like it's just a generic warzone with a ball that gets passed around. Pretty lame.

Guys this is still beta for goodness sakes relax. This isn't the final build. They are still tweaking stuff..World of warcraft was not perfect when it came out and didn't have everything ready for end game the same will happen for guild wars 2 and this mmo star wars old republic.I probably be getting guild wars 2 . But it seems as we get closer and closer to star wars old republic haters are coming out and trying to ditch the game just like they did to Age of Conan and other games saying nothing will beat WORLD OF WARCRAFT and that WORLD OF WARCRAFT is and always will be number 1 no matter what.

This is pretty much the final product, for a development team to make design changes at this stage of the game is unheard of. Most people who hate on SWTOR do not like WoW.

sorry but disagree on both counts one is a lot of wow people say they will play this game and majority of them will ditch it like they did to other mmos.

second this isn't the final product Bioware said to the people that preorder and etc will get to be in the beta most likely either a stress test beta or a open beta or a close beta but Bioware has not said it gone gold yet and once it gone gold that means the final product has been made and ready to be shipped.

/facepalm......

do I really need to spell this out for you?

Absolutely NO design changes will occur during this stage of beta testing....PERIOD. To do so would set the release date back several months. The most that could happen right now (without effecting the release date) is the pulling of features that are either too buggy or not finished. As of right now this is the last testing phase, in a last testing phase you weed out things like memory leaks, people falling through the world, glitches, major bugs that affect the gameplay for the user. YOU DO NOT alter the design of the game.

yes you are right but also they can redo the design if something major happen seriously doubt that will happen although if it does yes you right the release date would be push but right now we don't even know it and second this isn't the final product till they say ti gone gold then it the final product just like what Microsoft does with there products when they are in betas they say builds numbers then RC Rc 1 maybe etc then say gold edition.We probably wont know when it goes gold I dont know if EA or Bioware will say star wars old republic has gone gold they may just keep that internal among themselves and say beta testing done and it ready to be shipped.But you are right the design is done unless for some reason out of nowhere they decide to fix it because of a situation happen or etc .

I honestly hope this game is really good. There needs to be another major AAA title in the MMO market for once.

we see but we know one thing is for sure wow fans or shall i say blizzard fans wont be happy not all of them but they wont be happy that another mmo is in the market and say world of warcraft is number one and that nothing can take out wow they come on to the forums and in the chat in the game during the free time before they pay and ditch the game saying bad graphics no end game and etc other stuff to make people leave the game and say that wow is number one and the best and etc.

Yeah they do that. Honestly though, we won't know how well it will do until lots of others are playing it. My attention will be set on the Sept. Test Weekend events and the responses from others.

Best online game at GAMESCOM. All of the nominees aren't released, that's the entire idea behind the award...

I remember their release too...3 weeks after it Trion announced RIft had 19 million subs but they still couldnt prove it...a few days later Trion closed all their servers then filed bankruptcy...

im pretty pissed this won the award over GW2. TOR has no innovation in any area, and is basically a WoW clone.
