    Not sure how many MMOers we have in TSO but is anyone going to be playing?

    My guild got assigned to the Corellian Run server and we're playing Republic.

    Played in the Beta a bit and didn't really like it. At the time PvP was pretty weak and their wasn't really plans for much of it. The end game is basically non existent. I just wish they would've made a kotor 3 (if that's possible with the story, I don't remember how 2 ended) instead of this. :(

    I'll play WoW and might pick up GW2 when that comes out.

    I was only in the second to last beta weekend, the stress test one. I enjoyed it enough to play the game for until at least max level. They said there are already a few raids for level 50's and they're going to add more about a month from release. My main problem with it is the amount of quest overlap, I want to play all the main storylines but like 70% of the quests are shared.

    I wish they would have made a KOTOR3 too but this is at least a little like KOTOR with 8 different stories. And to answer your questions KOTOR2 didn't really end. The game was supposed to have a different more fleshed out ending but they ran out of time developing it so you basically just abruptly went into a fight with the old Jedi lady Kreia and then the game ended. Heh.

    Not exactly sure how people can say end game is non-existant when all that's been played was an unfinished beta that hadn't added most of the end game content.

    And my guild got assigned to Darth Bandon. I'll have characters on other servers, though, to play with friends.

    Rift did not have an end game and the PvP was repetitive and w/o solid balance. Thus, the game lost a shit load of subs after the free time expired.


    - Also, I am not saying the game is bad / will be bad. I simply did not like it during my time playing and have not heard great things about it. Some people seem to love it though, but that seems to happen with every new MMO that comes out. At least the Star Wars portion of it and the initial polish that comes with the boatload of money they put in will keep it from dying and such even if there are some problems.

    Liking the game so far, graphics are good and you can really tell its a Bioware game.

    It is Star Wars WoW.

    I cant play WoW anymore though. Old and crusty, same old crap with the same old player base. ToR is intriguing, but I think I may not have the time for it. I am also interested in GW2, but my MMO days may be behind me at this point.

    Well, this one is meant to be played more slowly for the storyline instead of rushing to end game content.

    A friend of mine gifted this to me so I guess I will be trying it out.

    I traditionally hate MMO's though - I'm guessing I will hate this too.

    So, against my better judgement I picked this up today.

    Who else is playing?

    Keller, what server are you on?

    We should pick a server and get a TSO guild going. SoAP works for me. Jedi or Sith?

    Nah, I've got one of basically every character already. Doesn't matter to me.

    I'm a Sith - not by choice.

    My buddies all wanted to play it. I can create a Jedi.

    I'm playing somewhat. Been busy, so I haven't been going nuts with it, and I haven't invested any time into my guy on SoAP.
