The game is already linear, hand holding to the extreme and exceedingly simple to pick up once you enter. Now this? Really?...

@MMOaddict I know, right? I mean, how dare they condescend to people who might be new to a game like this, or act as if they're not all the blazing geniuses that MMOaddict is and make little videos as much for marketing purposes as for actual help?
God, these people! Bioware, amirite, ladies and gentlemen?

@Rebelyankee this is probably the most friendliest game to newcomers to the genre.

Not all of us are WoW players. In some ways the game offers a nice challenge.

I heard this game was so cryptic and complicated that it needs tons of guides.

You guys should preface all the SWToR screenshots/videos from Bioware here with:

"Please not that all screenshots and videos shown include high resolution texture packs that are not available in consumer copies of the game."

I took this one minute ago.

Oh, wait.

There was something like 120 servers, about 7-8 were listed as "light".

And to answer the obvious question, I have characters on multiple servers because I saved some names on some servers friends were on.

I was actually going to type that exact observation, then I seen your comment.

I have 0 interest in the game, let alone any interest to play it, but that did kinda give me that "All that hype...for what?!" feeling.

Maybe you should view my comment.

If the video was shot Wednesday morning at 7AM, would you expect a ton of populated servers?

@Natester21 Server population seems to have a perfect shift between US and EU servers over 24 hours.

Day / Evening in US: US populations generally seem to be about 1/3 Standard, 1/3 Heavy, and 1/3 split between Very Heavy, Full and Light. EU populations at Light.

Day / Evening in EU: EU populations generally seem to be about 1/3 Standard, 1/3 Heavy, and 1/3 split between Very Heavy and Light. US populations at Light.

It's easy to get a screenshot showing higher server loads or low server loads for whatever an article requires - just take the screenshot at either day or night.

This does qualify as frequent content updates.

@Joaquin Crowe
They released new raid bosses and a new dungeon in January. They're releasing a new raid, dungeon, battleground, the legacy system, ranked PVP, and more in March.

What WOULD you consider "Frequent" updates for a game that has been out a few days over a month now?

@KvanCetre 1) it does count as content

2) lighten up, Francis, not everything is an attack on poor little TOR.

Also, an apology. I read your comment as "doesn't" until right now.
