Go ahead and turn it into just a RPG instead of a MMO and call it KOTOR3 and I'll bear your children.

Yes.

God, I hate MMO's. Otherwise I'd actually buy this game (which is a very rare occurrence for me). :(

I like deep MMOs, but they tend to be the unsuccessful ones. It seems that the internet crowd prefers a mix between Gauntlet and Sims now days. People used to take their time with classes and learn how to use them effectively, but now days it's all about grinding to the top fast and wasting away your life on raids.

I play MMOs mostly for PvP. Until someone manages to integrate story and varied PvE gameplay into an MMO like single player RPGs (KOTOR, Mass Effect) I'll stick to MMOs where the end game revolves around PvP. Unfortunately most games manage to turn that into a grind as well. What I'd give for DAOC RvR again circa 2002-2003 preTOA.

I'm the opposite, PvP has no interest for me. LOTRO has a PvP region but I have not been into it for over a year. I like solo quests and fellowing - huge raids take forever to setup and just don't seem as interesting to me but I am sure I will try one again.

LOTOR has a great integrated story line, called Books, that are independent of the leveling mechanism and get you involved with the LOTR story by aiding Gandalf and Aragorn, among others, with tasks related to the main story. The book quests are the most fun parts of the game IMO. I admit that the LOTR "lore" is what got me into the game, so it's probably not for everyone.

The next LOTRO expansion will let you lead NPCs as "troops", should be interesting.

if there's one thing Star Wars needed it is 15 year olds yelling racial slurs over X-Box Live.

Yeah, it's just my way of trashing cookie cutter MMOs. To me, they might as well be Gauntlet. "Red Warrior is about to die!" :eek: (Not that there is anything wrong with Gauntlet.)

I might be missing what you are replying to (if anything) but this game is PC only like Star Wars: Galaxies.

Keep checking back. I got through it last night after it was down for hours.

It’s been a humbling 24 hours. We knew that interest would be high but yesterday the community proved just how highly anticipated Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ is. We experienced an overwhelming amount of traffic which resulted in having to bring the website down so the team could address the performance and capacity issues.

While we are still experiencing a high degree of traffic, we have brought the service back up and are accepting new accounts and Game Tester applications. We will be continually monitoring the service and do our best to manage the continued volumes of interest.
