foo monkey: This will go F2P in six months. Anyone still left will bail for the next WoW expansion..


If anything, this game will gain subs when Pandaville hits.

Honest Bender: Leishu: I'm curious which classes are unplayable? I have one of each empire class and they're all quite easily soloable (one at 50, three around 25) at the moment.

Guess you don't play pvp much.


That is very true. It isn't a factor, to say the least, in my selection of an MMO, unless it's unavoidable, at which point I will not play said MMO.

This is the first MMO I've ever played and I'm enjoying it a bit. I've only played Jedi Sentinel (lvl 37) though so can't comment on the breadth of the game. For me the primary enjoyment is as a timesink. I'm on-call 5 days a week, but usually only work a day or 2 every few weeks. However due to being on-call I can't wander too far from home (have to be into work in 20 mins) so a game like this is great.

You DON'T know what a CSR is? No, you don't go outside too much, you're just a dribbling retard.

Neo, the Star Trek Online F2P conversion has been amazing. Perfect World has changed the game around big time. Definitely worth another look.

Haha, no. WoW is half-assing with the pandas, dumbed down "skill trees", homogenized everything, and cess pool of a player base. Saddest thing is how TOR picked up the WoW refuse for the first month. They stick around like boards like that skidmark that you still can't clean, no matter how much toilet paper you use. Can't wait for them to GTFO and go whine in WoW some more.


Oh dear god you're serious aren't you? You actually think the playerbase of SWTOR will be any better than WoW?

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

I'm not defending WoW or it's playerbase by any means but something with even broader appeal to the 12 and under crowd (star wars) being helmed by one of, if not the worst, game company in the industry. And you think it's going to be some kind of Shangri La compared to WoW?

That is some funny shiat right there.

I've decided to give it another shot. I reinstalled it last night and created a new character. I previously played through the open beta and a couple months into release. I'm looking forward to seeing the changes. I'm still finishing up the tutorial and the one thing I've noticed is the ton of microtransaction options for cosmetic stuff. I guess that's to be expected now that it's f2p. I'm just happy that the number of currencies in game has been consolidated.

You had me until that comment. You've immediately lost all of your credibility. Thanks for playing, though.

I love this game, played beta, and have been playing since launch.

Trooper is a great starting class, and has a lot of power regardless of your skill tree. If you're having problems, I suggest you go healer, and let your companion tank. You just sit back and let them whack at bosses. I also stronly suggest you invest in upgradeable armor. These are the pieces with slots. Just plug in new mods, armor, and enhancements as you go. This stuff is all available on the auction house as it can be player made, can be earned through random quests, or can be bought with commendations on most planets. You want orange or purple gear.

The story lines are well written. You are forced to make tough decisions that will have long term consequences. I find that the story lines really drive me forward in the game.

I've run into bugs, but after playing MMORPG's for over 10 years I just don't let them get to me anymore. Thoug the Holocom bug up thread would bother me. Just keep sending tickets if you have to, the game is new and they are most likely working on a lot of issues at the moment.

The post I specifically responded to stated that TOR will go free to play in 6 months, and everyone will go back to WoW with their tail between their legs. My point, no it won't and no they won't. Galaxies still had players, and people here claim it was a clusterfark.

I think once the WoW clowns GTFO it may settle down a bit. Will it be utopia? No, there is no such thing on the internet. Will it be as bad or worse than WoW? I don't think as bad, no. People are people, and there will always be bad behavior. Yet WoW since Cata is a cesspool of vile farkwads who would piss on you rather than offer help. The community's killing that game from the inside out, as the expansions and rebalancing are in response to their listening to their playerbase - a discordant bunch who don't know WTF they want.

I pity the devs at both BW and Blizz. There is NO way in heaven or earth to please players.

Star Trek Online is F2P?

w00t! FREE STUFF!

/okay, I've played a while... the user interface sucks donkey balls, but the F2P implementation is really good. Still, the UI makes me want to vomit.

Many Men Online Role-Playing as Girls. That's what that stands for.

Weaver95: I have to admit - visually, the game is pretty spiffy looking. ok...Hoth is kind of boring but it's Hoth. its kinda supposed to be boring. But when i'm flying across the dune sea on tatooine it really feels like i'm in a star wars movie.


The game is so dreadfully boring. The first play through to 50 was kinda interesting. Once you hit 50 there is nothing really to do and they basically hand you your epic gear with no real effort. I mean seriously, I have my DPS and Healer pets both in pure epics and it took a whole 5 days. Now you could say "Well play through another character to 50 and enjoy the story" while some people have/are doing that the interesting voice acting gimmick is already played out. Sure it is a different story but it is not nearly as enticing as the first play through and you start hitting space bar.

Great potential. Total flop IMHO.
