  1. I got in on the first wave ... I had preordered & entered my code a couple hours after they announced the game was available for preorder.
  2. Yeah I guess I enjoy it still … although it’s not the best PvP experience I enjoy it mainly due to the people I play with & hang out with in TS … if it weren’t for them I probably wouldn’t bother with PvP at all in LotRO. I sent all 6 monsters over to the new server … it was pricey but I rationalize the expense as follows. As a hardcore gamer I used to buy a new game at least once a month, often times it was 2 per month. I have been playing nothing but LotRO for last 4 years, I bought the lifetime sub when it was available for 99.99 & bought all expansions after that, so technically I haven’t spent no where near the amount of money I would have spent console gaming with playing LotRO, so due to that I don’t mind “investing” some money into LoTRO here & there.
  3. Who else is having a hard time thinking of a list of possible names for all your characters? I am about to burn a fuse thinking about this ... it's driving me nuts! I want to play all 8 classes & I want every one of them to be a different race as to mix it up as much as possible ... then I have the added challenge to come up with a Legacy Name that can tie all 8 of them together ... GAAAH!!!
  4. Well I too was looking to stop playing LotRO for a while ... but since they lifted the server xfer ban I just had to xfer my creeps to a better pvp server ... now my friends & I are having quite a bit of fun getting to know the new server & starting a whole new KOS List ...
  5. I didn't trust it ... I deleted my beta client & redownloaded the game ... just rather have peace of mind & have no issues come early launch day then to have some bullshit keep me from playing the game early & having to redownload game at that time ... sigh ... I swear I am so excited ... I been waiting for this game since they announced it years ago ... I know I am not the only one feeling like this!!! After all the beta testing I just cant wait to officialy start my character & see where my stories lead!!!
  6. Well since I have 2 lifetime accounts I will not be leaving LotRO completely, as others have said I will be milking the lifetime sub as long as I can. However, now for the first time in 4+ years of playing LotRO my time will be now split between it & another MMO Game which will be SWtoR ... since I will be playing all 8 classes for the sake of the storylines I can say with certainty that LotRO will be taking a backseat for a while.
  7. Hmmm ... interesting. Okay here is another question, because depending the answer to this question I was going to maybe split play between servers. Is the crafting I do with say the republic side, can only be shared between my republic alts or can I craft say with my republic toon for my imperial toons & can the mats I collect with one side be mailed or shared between both factions? Reason I ask is, if I can craft & share resources & the like between both factions then there's advantages to having all your toons on one server. However, if that's not the case then I was thinking of maybe splitting my game time between a PvE & PvP server. Maybe have say my Empire toons on PvP & Republic toons on PvE.
  8. Looks like most people will be on PvE servers ... this is my second MMO with LotrO being my first. I love PvP in LotRO & most of my LotRO buddies are PvPers as well so we all opted for a PvP server in SWtoR. I am a bit skeptical now because I see how so many people are going PvE ... is there something I should know about PvP servers that maybe everyone knows but I seem to be in the dark about? Does this mean that every quest I do I will have the added stress/challenge of getting my ass handed to me by a gank squad of PvPers roaming around? I guess I just don't quite understand the differences between the two ... hmmm ... I think it's time for me to Google this ... lol.
  9. My friends & I created a guild & it's gonna be deployed but I did tell my friends that what means most to me then the guild name is the name of my characters, I am VERY picky about that & if the names get taken (unlikely, but if they do) I will keep trying different servers until I get the names I want ... I hope I can get them on same server as my friends but if not then I guess I will be making new friends ... HAHAHAHA ... sounds mean but I just can't get into the game unless the name, bio & history of the character pulls me in, I don't really RP but I still like my toon to have a backstory & all the RP elements in place for me to play the game.
  10. I'll have to check my mail to see if I was selected ... but knowing my luck I am sure I wasn't.
  11. Thanks to all that answered my question ... I appreciate it.
  12. Question ... & I apologize if it's not on topic for this thread ... was there a option or place on the characters to write up a "Bio" for your character much like LotRO has? I don't remember seeing one & was wondering if there was one at all or if you have heard of them maybe implementing one at launch?
  13. I couldnt put it better myself. I too was thinking the same ... this will definitely be a good guage as to see how they address the concerns of their player base, especially since this topic has been recieved with so much criticism, the official forums literally had 4 threads dedicated to this topic & 3 were closed & deleted off the forums by Bioware to the surprise of the forum community.
  14. Since this thread is just talking in general of our thoughts on the game ... heres a pretty popular topic I found on the official forums & I'd like to know what you guys think. The issue about the surnames being tied to this lagacy system they are implementing after you finish chapter 1 of the story line on your first character on the server you are playing on ... what are your thoughts on it? I think it blows!!! You can tell they weren't going to allow surnames at all ... but to appease the masses they allowed this "legacy" name to be used as a surname if you'd like or a "title" ... problem is that all characters on the same server (light & dark side) will all share this legacy name or surname if you choose to show it as such which is utterly ridiculous from a RP standpoint. So if you want to have all your toons with different surnames then youd have to create them all on different servers. Which I would have no problem with but it sucks cuz that means I cant share resources/crafting/legacy points with all my toons or say play with my friends with all my toons since they'd be spread out on all different servers.
  15. Thanks you guys ... I kinda thought that was the process as it's the only thing that'd make sense if I was going to be able to get in early, but I just wanted to make sure ... I'll be asking for the 15th-20th off from work to take full advantage of the early access assuming that I get to get in all 5 days since I ordered my copy as soon as it went on sale ... from what I gathered on their site they will be letting people into the game slowly going in order of when the game preorder was purchased.
  16. I think I bought it from GameStop online. I did get a code & applied it via their website ... I did everything I was supposed to do to get early access ... but I guess my question is do I have to wait for the physical game to be mailed to me to play the game or are they gonna allow me to download the game early via internet so I can gain early access whilst I wait for the physical deluxe boxed game to be mailed to me when it officially releases?
  17. Hmm ... I guess I am a bit more forgiving then most since I don't play every MMO that comes on the market unless it's got an IP that peaks my interest ... which thus far have been LotRO & now SWtoR respectively. I also didn’t listen to the hype, I just kept up to date with their videos & their website updates & to be honest it really just looked like they were making a MMO version of the KotOR games & that is exactly what they made from what I can tell this past weekend, which in my opinion is nice. Don't mean to sound like a fan boy ... but I guess I am to an extent. Then again I am not like a lot of you, I haven’t played the same model of a game over & over with every new title released ... I have only played LotRO & now SWtoR ... maybe I would be like most of you if I too played every MMO released.
  18. Umm ... I know this is off topic but does anyone know if I will be able to play 5 days early if I bought the Deluxe Special Edition that get's mailed to me? I tried looking for an answer in the FAQ's on their website & didn't quite get a clear answer. It sort of seemed like if you bought the game early (which I did, I bought it an hour after they announced the sale online) that I would be getting a email letting me know I can play. My question is ... will I be given a link to download the game so that I can play early or will the physical game be mailed to me on time for early access?
  19. Yeah, honestly the 6% added speed is barely noticeable to be honest I usually use a horse on my character to match their outfits & for most part they are all 162% speed ... I have been in groups with horses that go 168% & I was able to keep up just fine ... it's when someone has bought & fed their horse that 'Horse Crack' that makes them run like they have a damn afterburner in their arse that I can't keep up with them ... lol.
  20. Thats what I mean ... because there are 4 speeds if I am not mistaken ... the bree horse which is slow, I think it goes as fast as a hunter with run buff. then there is the regular speed like the 60 morale goat I mentioned, then the faster horse like most rep faction horses & of course the super fast stable horse (which you cant control). I guess my giving that example was comparing the goat to a rep faction horse which is faster.
  21. Excellent review! I think I agree with everything you said ... for most part it's what I would have said as well. I'mma go home from work today hoping maybe I can play a bit more.
  22. Well I am a huge fan of the KotOR games & as such I was expecting SWtOR to just be a MMO version of the same game, so I am pleased to say that the game met my expectations. Maybe if I had set a higher bar of expectations like many have, I too would have been disappointed, but I am glad I am not one of these people. I didn't get to play the game as much as I would have wanted since I had an issue with installation, but everything I tried was pretty much what I was expecting. My only complaint so far was the character creation. I was hoping for a lot more options. It wasn't too bad in regard to faces, although I would have liked more choices. My biggest issue was the fact there was ONLY 4 body types: 1. Anemic super skinny teen body. 2. Average body. 3. Amazon freaky tall body. 4. Super fat body. I wouldn't mind only 4 body models if we were allowed to maybe tweak the bodies with sliders or something to that effect ... but just 4 static body models is very limited imho.
  23. I'm all for helping lonely adventurers get a better player experience as I am usually a loner for most part anyway. If this tool is designed correctly it will help immensely in forming groups & getting content done & also forces people to get to know other people who maybe otherwise would never meet due to most people sticking to their kins or "cliques".
  24. I picked PvP ... mainly cuz I love the challenge & after playing 4+ years in such a small sandbox in lotro for pvp I am going for full pvp this time!
  25. I just logged into my minstrel alt & my first reaction was "WTF?!!!" I still havent taken him out to quest I am still trying to make sense of all the icons & everything ... just as the guy above said if only I can unlearn the old way ... geez they really changed the minstrel, it's a whole new class now. Has anyone made or found a good Minstrel guide for the "new minstrel" class yet??? I would love the link ...
