I am, unfortunately. Most of my buddies/clan are going to play RP server. As much as I love PvP, I hate playing solo. I know I can always find a new guild, but why do that when you have friends in a previous one. I'll probably end up playing a PvP server later. Looks like I'll be playing war games most of the time =/.
There's always Illum. Open world pvp even on pve servers.

Haha...ain't that the truth. Tbh both male and female armor looks like crap in this game, you can only wear jedi robes for so long before getting bored. Anyways I played male Jedi in beta, David Hayter does slip sometimes and let out his "snake" voice in some lines, but mostly he sounds like a upright Jedi. That in itself is not too bad, arg...so undecided x_x

just look at it this way, people playing before you are testing the game for you.

You get nothing but the satisfaction of watching some Jedi flop over dead. No commendations, no experience, no valor. Which I think will show us who on a pvp server actually joined to pvp, and who joined for the epeen.

There's always the RP-PVP servers.

And, Hige, as a Jedi Guardian, you can actually wear any heavy armor in the game that can be modded. This includes any Bounty Hunter, Trooper, or Sith Warrior Armor. If you decide you don't care about your armor class, you can actually wear ANY piece of armor in the game that can be modded. On paper, heavy armor classes have way more aesthetic options than the other classes. You don't have to stay with the stuffy Jedi robes. Now, there are pieces of armor that have alignment requirements, and some end game gear has class-specific requirements, but it still leaves you with a lot of aesthetic choices if you are tenacious enough to track it all down.

My Jedi Knight in beta looked like a Trooper wielding a lightsaber.

I was considering operative, but then I remembered that I wanted to play an agent for the ranged combat and the "dig in and obliterate everything that comes close" feel, while the operative pretty much makes you a mid-close ranged rogue.

Too bad, would have loved the extra healing tree, but ah well. There's always the scoundrel on the Republic side.

Okay... I'm in, but I'm very pissed that my guild was placed in one of the very first german servers. Meaning queuing times of 30-40 minutes, great...

I preordered on November 11th though, and got my invite about 7 hours ago and have been playing since then. Not sure what this says about their early access system, either it has some glitches (in which case I am thankful ), or there is some random factor to it.

Now I only need to sit in a 240 people long que, since I logged out for a bit *drums fingers*

Wewt, Amazon has shipped my copy of the game. If all goes well with international shipping I should have it early next week. /glee

I'm liking the Sorcerer, finally got Chain Lightning. All is right with the world.

I've noticed something fairly hilarious (at least among my guild), we've got 7 tanks, 3 DPS, and maybe 1 or 2 healers atm. -_- People just kinda went with it because, (insert class) heck yeah! Contemplating going heals myself but not overly keen on it, if the Sorcerer healed with lightning, I might reconsider.

If the operative wasn't limited to melee stabby action, I'd be playing one right now. As it stands though, annihilation from afar is much more fun. Probably will be a healer when I finally get around to rolling my sorcerer and commando though.

Playing this game. Got my Marauder to lvl 15, almost finished with the Dromund Kaas main storyline. Haven't touched any of the Heroic quests there though, I'll probably do that after I complete the storyline.

Awesome game. Best solo gameplay in any MMO I've seen thus far.

Didn't they say they were releasing in batches. Setting up new servers as they went in an effort to avoid those problems?

Then again, in that guy's defense the story has nothing to do with the endgame, which shall be raids. It does not change spells, it does not change endgame villains, it does not change the overall story that much from a Cold War setting. You are either nice or a prick in your cutscenes. In the end, it is an MMO and as much as BW touts story the MMO medium is limiting. And, some people may not give a damn about the story and just want an MMO with lightsabers. Even if BW made TOR a fantastic gripping story, there will be a crowd that just skips it and bitches about no endgame.

Also he may still understand the story completely. In beta I often read the subtitles and moved on before the voices finished. It saved a lot of time. Furthemore, not to sound like a snob, but the stories are not extraordinary complex (okay this sounds snob-like anyway, sorry). Players may be fun to some and that is perfectly fine, but we are not talking about Planescape Torment story either. I am not going to get into the flaws I think TOR's has story since I have already bitched about it and I should probably just move on anyway.

Although, this is probably just a cookie cutter leveling scheme or perhaps an XP exploit in the works.

And in the final 'Choose Your Side' video, we are presented with the Smuggler and Sith Warrior...


Also of interest: a new Star Wars comic with an Imperial agent as the lead character... and yes, it's rife with Bond nods.

has anyone picked a Miraluka (blind race) yet?

and why is it in those Pick your sides, the dark side class always has these butt heads who think "Smuggler doesnt have a light saber" I really wanted to slap him at the back of his head for that.
