Roland I don't think that you can play with other factions, at least the guilds are only Imperial and Republic. If I am wrong I would love a link.

I looked today for specs sammy and I can't find any.

No minimum specs yet. They confirmed no release date or pre-order info coming at E3, by the way. They did say a while back that you'll be able to run the game on older machines, though; but that generally just means you can lower graphics settings quite a bit. :)

@Fud: I was told that by someone in the beta a long time ago. After asking a couple of other people, apparently that is not actually the case. Damnit! Apparently it really is separate like alliance and horde in WoW. Your guild is either Imperial or Republic, and no classes of the other faction are allowed into it. Bah. I really hate the severe lack of official info on this game right now......rumor has it you can talk to people on the other faction but not group with them or guild with them.

<sigh>

Thats what I thought.


Everyone in my group of friends is picking a character on each side, Republic and Imperial. We will then have a formal vote as to which we will play.

My big problem is I am starting nights again so I will only be able to play at nights when no one is awake.

Yeah, time of day doesn't matter much in an MMO, lol.

Since the guild I'll be in is Imperial, I have to figure out what to be, since I was going to be a Gunslinger...Hrmph.

Yeah, I was really looking forward to the gunslinger moniker, though; considering my namesake, and all; and the gunslinger LOOKS like a gunslinger a lot more than the mercenary.

I really need beta access, lol. :( I'm sad that I've not gotten in, despite registering for it the day it opened. (which crashed their site, too)

I was also playing SWG on Day One. Eclipse server. Big-time recruiter for my guild. Then all the Jedi (and unbalanced combat medics) came in and ruined everything, upon which Sony completely overreacted and destroyed the combat part of it. Unconscionable.

I was a wookie Master Creature Handler, I got my ass handed to me in pvp. Only time I would partake in that was when I was with my guild and we were attacking our nemesis guild's city, or they were attacking our city. That was fun stuff, even though we usually lost. We did make a very cool city though.

I miss my creature handler and all my pets, hand picked everyone of those baby's and raised 'em myself... ah good times. Found this interesting video, I remember most of those creatures, and had a lot of them as pets at one time or another.

I've been stoked on this for awhile now. Watched my friend play it at PAX last year, and I've been signed up for beta since they had a signup page on the website. Still haven't been picked either :(

I bought a 3-day Pax pass for this August. I'm stoked about being able to play it there. 8)

Anyone who is thinking about playing SWTOR, should play through Dragon Age/Dragon Age II. The use of storytelling in those games is amazing, and will be similarly used in SWTOR.

I've been following this game's development closely since I first heard about it and will definitely be a smuggler/gunslinger for my first go at it. It will be my first MMO, so I've been reading up on all the tactics and terminology I can in order to shorten my learning curve.

The usual internet mutterings indicate that Bio is still pushing to a release this fall...in one case, a poster on another board claimed to work at a bookstore that was scheduled to stock the strategy guide for it in early October. Would make sense for the game to come out roughly when this guide does, eh? I hope...

I can't say no to this one, I've been a gigantic SW geek since age 4 and the KOTOR games were spectacular. Glad a bunch of you are on board!

I'm pretty sure SWTOR won't release until November or December. EA is the publisher for it and BF3, and BF3 is coming out October 25th. It'd be stupid to release SWTOR before BF3, or within a week or two after BF3's release.

I'd be down to play on a Seahawk Guild, that would actually be pretty dorky and funny. We have random characters named after Seahawks players past and present.

Lol. I'll post what server I'm playing on when the game launches, but the guild I'll be in does not allow anyone to join, it's rather private. I'll be Imperial side, so maybe someone should make a Republic Seahawks guild on the same server, or something? :)

Quote:
First of all, a lot has been made about the new “fourth pillar” of story telling. Is it really all they are making it out to be? In my personal opinion, yes, it really is a big deal and let me tell you why. In the short time I’ve been playing SW:TOR I have already given more thought to my character than I ever did in all the years I played WOW. I’ve had to make hard choices with my Bounty Hunter that have made me honestly think about who he is and what he’s like. At first I intended to play him as a real asshole but some of the moral quagmires these quests put you in just aren’t that black and white. Do I do what gets me the most credits? Do I stay loyal to the person who gave me the job even it means hurting Innocent people? As a result of all this I have a character that is a hard ass bounty hunter who has a soft spot for people in trouble and children. The only thing I could tell you about my WOW character Dudefella is that he was a mage and a hell of a good dancer.

Of course all MMO’s now are going to have you taking quests but I think the big difference here is that I tend to care more about these quests. I will admit I am not a quest reader when I play an MMO. I click and click until it’s accepted and then read the breakdown on my way out to wherever the wolf bladders are. Playing a class in SW:TOR is like playing a single player Bioware game. People are talking to you and you’re deciding how to respond and making dialog choices. Turning the quests into an interactive experience makes me care a lot more about them. A quest is still a chance to get XP, money and loot but it’s also an opportunity to advance your character towards the dark or light side based on your decisions. In most MMO’s taking quests is what you do so that you can go play. In SW:TOR, taking quests is playing.

A nice little mini-oped about SW:TOR from "Gabe" @ Penny Arcade.

Yeah, I was highly pleased to read that. More hopeful for the game to be awesome than ever before.

Ugh, I can't wait for that flippin' game to come out.

I did this morning; pre-ordered the standard version from Amazon. The redemption code activated right away, too.

Between this and BF3 I'm not going to need any other games for quite some time.

Too bad, you've got more awesome games to purchase, anyways. Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is coming out in November, and Mass Effect 3 is coming out next March. It's like, the greatest 6-month game release time frame in history. Seriously. I'm McLovin' it. :D

I'm playing, got my collectors edition pre-ordered. Pretty darn stoked.


I'm a leader of a large republic guild if anyone's looking for a whom. Would love more hawks fans.

My buddy in Portland got a beta invite.... what a fuck! I signed up for beta like 2 yrs ago and still have yet to get mine. I had the opportunity to go to his place and roll a Bounty Hunter and play for about 3 hrs. Man what a great game so far. He has a badass rig so all settings maxed, beautiful stuff. The install is 30 gigs, and there are over 200 hrs of dialog alone. The immersion into the game is incredible, you end up giving a shit about what you do and how you do it.

Bioware is master at the story, and it is present in this game. I can't wait to play. From what I hear the developers are taking a note from Blizzard and making the game look great but still able to be played on lower end systems which is what tends to kill many MMO's is performance issues. Who knows how well the servers will perform once they ramp up beta but I believe the devs have the money to do what needs to be done to make this game a great experience. Count me in for a .net guild if you guys want to throw something like that together.

Does anyone know about the extras in the collector's edition? In particular the exclusive vendor. Trying to decide if it's going to be worth the $150.

Nobody knows what the exclusive vendor will have. Aren't all the collector's editions sold out already, though?

Also, I've got a weekend beta invite for this weekend. Can't wait to get home Friday night and play with almost no sleep through Monday night. ;)

I actually went ahead and bought it. Turns out I had some Best Buy reward zone certificates laying around about to expire and that knocked the price down to $85. And I don't think they were sold out. At least not through best buy anyway since my order went through with no problems. Nice on the beta invite btw. Let me know how it goes.

I signed up for beta seems like ages ago. 2 years I think. I've been in the process of rebuilding my comp and will probably have it finished in time for the game to come out although I could run it now if I had to. Just got my Radeon 6950 2gb pci card in today. Can't wait to put it in.

Yeah, my site registration date for my main account (I have two, one I registered the first week on in the middle of '09 and a main one I registered later) is January 2010.

Bioware/EA opened up the Guild Formation on their website.

I created a DotNet Guild for fellow Seahawk and ToR fans to guild up.

Just got done with my second weekend beta invite; all the first-timers were re-invited to the second one because the first had a number of game-breaking issues.

Damn, this game is freaking amazing. Wish I could share details on here, but I can't. All I'll say is pre-order it now, and we're more likely to win 16 Super Bowls in a row than you are to regret making that pre-order. Just sayin'.

They made you sign non-disclosure agreements?

The NDA you agree to when you accept the beta invitation in your email is DRACONIAN. Absolutely brutal. Look at it wrong and they'll steal your firstborn - section three, article two. ;) Why do you think there is like, no leaked info anywhere on the web? They banned one guy because he logged into his beta account from work, and from home, lol.

Do they track your username, email and all alternate handles? Sounds pretty hardcore.

Had two friends play over the weekend but they said they were having connection issues on Friday when everyone was trying to log on. One of them also d/l'ed the wrong beta client and had to start all over.

There is no way to download the wrong beta client unless someone from the previous beta weekend shared their download link with you which is a forbidden NDA violation, or you clicked the link to download it in the original email, which the new one specifically said not to do. They also stated flat-out that this was a completely new build and that you must uninstall the prior one if you were in the first weekend beta, and download the new one. This isn't the shack/PWR, so I won't denigrate your friend that downloaded the old client here, but...yeah. ;) Tell him to RTFM, haha.

Nobody knows for sure what they track, but it's obviously a LOT. They do not want the general public knowing anything they don't specifically release.

Also...they are really holding back on taking good screenshots. 99% of the screenshots on the www.swtor.com official site are mundane compared to what they could take in the game, right now. They're clearly holding back to release better stuff closer to launch, or just holding back period to let there be more surprises for purchasers of the game; don't know.

Good news to those that haven't gotten into beta, yet. You will.

http://www.swtor.com/news/news-article/20111111-0

^ Confirmation that anyone who signed up for beta access before today will get into one before the game launches. Sweetness.

@Smokey: I really like Hutta, the starter planet for Imperial Agents and Bounty Hunters. It's better than Korriban, IMO. Granted, they didn't have much artistic license with Korriban; they had to follow the lore and it's pretty detailed in books and such.

Make sure you guys level to 16-17, high enough to get your ships.
