I've never been more excited to watch a game launch and fail.

What a rude awakening is in store all the people who actually believe there are 200 hours of indivdual class story waiting for them. Oh man, this gone be good.

This game will not fail. it is not problem-free, it is not a wow-killer, and despite similaritys they have it is a WoW-clone, but there is definatly a good chunk of players who will stick with it.

@JayDay

Sadly JayDay you troll as much as those you keep pointing out as trolls. You make flame like insulting rejoinders to many around this site. How about working on pointing out what you don't like and why in regards to someones post. Instead of your usual insults to every post you don't agree with.

Or better yet just ignore those you don't agree with since you don't seem to want to reply in a way that points out why you don't agree with who ever you are responding to.

@(Unverified) let me guess because you played the game right and seen the community? To me given the way SwTor fans have been acting combined with the fact that it has WoW players I can safely predict that SwTOR community is going to be the worst PoS in the history second only to WoW and then Aion.

Calling me a troll? Really? Name me a single MMO that doesn't have you constantly working for different gear. Even the original GW had a gear grind, trying to get all the unique armors.

@Tannim If you know anything about guild wars 2 which is apparent that you don't know anything about it, guild wars 2 has no gear grind. Every single piece of gear at max level has an equal amount of power, the only difference between gear at max level is the appearance. And you can get max gear from killing world mobs or 5 man instances (mainly for the looks) and at the end of each run you get a piece of armor guaranteed.

@Clemalum07

Theirs too much debate these days about what a real MMO even is anymore.

Debates are all ruled by contention, tired idioms, and poorly generalized concepts.

"Sandbox" this, and "wowified" that, and "dumbing it down" rule the day.

We don't even know how to critically talk about this bloated notion of MMO intelligently any longer.

All this aside, I think if you like the idea of a Bio-Ware game that you can play with your friends for a change, then you'll get your box price and free month of moneys worth out of it. From what it will be beyond that? I guess only time will tell, but I'll be suprised if I'm playing it seriously in 6 months. I've flip flopped back and forth now for a while, but that doesn't have to be a bad thing anyhow, its all about managing expectations.

I gave up on expecting big budget projects to break real new ground, and I'm fine with that. I'm going to have fun playing this game for what it is, with my friends.

UN)OFFICIAL OCEANIC PVP SERVER: SwiftSure

Greetings!

On behalf of the Oceanic Daisy Chain, I'd like to inform you all that the (un)official Oceanic PvP server for SWTOR has been chosen to be SwiftSure (US West).

As you may be aware, the Oceanic region has been excluded from the official launch of SWTOR. That has not stopped us from building a sizeable and well organised community. Purely from the guilds signed up for the Official Pre-launch Guild Program, Oceanic PvP numbers stand at:

Republic = 751
Sith = 1210
Total registered TOR GHQ Accounts = 1961

Obviously, these numbers are only going inscrease.

So consider this a call to arms to all Oceanic players/guilds. We ask that even if your guild has been allocated to another server for deployment, that you reconsider and join us on Swiftsure, what is likely to be one of the best communities in the game.

If you'd like more information on the server decision or the Oceanic Daisy Chain Initiative, please take a look at these links:
