I've gotten some of those graphical errors but it hasn't been too bad. The client/server syncing does get pretty annoying, idk if that an issue they are actively fixing. The ability delay is getting fixed in the next patch though. It's already on the test servers(edit/fix: live as of this morning) and is getting overwhelming complements on the official forums, which is normally a cesspool of negativity. That was the biggie for me, I'm ready to see how it works out.

One thing that really bugs me....

When SWG was up, a planet was....a planet. You could get out of the spaceport, hop on your speeder, and head on out.

I decided to land on Tattooine, and 30 seconds outside Anchorhead I get this silly "exhaustion zone" message and have to go back to the marked path before I die. Lame.

Ability lag was a big one for me. I got into the game for the PVP and that was a hard one to overlook. Likewise the way the server is syncing the clients. I would target someone standing directly in front of me for an attack only to have an error pop up about range or line of site and have the player teleport away.

I wanted to like the game so much I even went out and bought a new rig
i5 2500K 3.3
Intel DZ68DB main board
8 GB Corsair 1600MHz
2 - Crucial M4 64GB SSDs (1 for OS, 1 for Games)
WD 1 TB 7200rpm
nVidia GeForce GTX560 1GB
600w OCZ power supply

And yet I still got graphics artifacts and tearing in game. Tattoine still took 2 minutes to load. I still had cut scenes where the characters would be rendered in all black except what looked to be lighting effects.

Throw in the standard complaints about ui customization, macros, addons, etc and Ive just given up.



On the flip side WoW looks and plays amazing on the new rig


nVidia has acknowledged that this is a problem with their cards and are working on a fix for it. ATI cards are not having the same issues.

Yeah I canceled last week.. even though leveling up a BH to 50 was pretty fun it's the seriously lack of anything to do at 50 besides pvp at ilum was a big problem.. also nobody would run any FP or heroics at all.. didn't help my guild sucked ass either.

I'm glad to hear that some folks are still enjoying it. The guys Ive been playing MMOs with for the past five years are all pretty fed up with it and I'm sure to some degree we feed a cycle of negative poo once a certain number of us decide were done.

Ive still got 25 days of play time so if they get the patch in to fix ability delay before then who knows, maybe Ill change my mind.

GL to everyone who is sticking it out. I really dont want to see Bioware get nailed to a cross over this one.

Don't get me wrong, I like playing the game - its a great time waster, looks good, etc.

The space combat is kinda odd with its preprogrammed routes like some kind of Sega shooter from the 90s...

they need to drop the monthly and release new content in the form of dlc/expansions while using updates for bugs/balance fixes

Maybe it's your server/guild but I have no trouble getting groups as a Merc BH. It might help that I'm in a progression guild and we have server firsts on every boss but there's more to do than just pvp. Hell my friend has started going back through the game with different classes and he's having a blast with the other story lines.

I just started lvling a sniper, heard the agent story is pretty awesome. Btw I have no real.issues finding groups, due to the fact that im a sorc healer.

Yeah tanks and healers really have no problem finding groups. Me and a guildmate were trying to find a PUG for Taris heroics earlier and we were both on DPS characters... We waited a while.
