The gigantic sense of entitlement monster that WoW created with this current expansion looks like it'll become the industry standard. People expect to be godly these days without much work involved. Raiding is no longer considered a privilege and that's something that bothers me. I want to slowly progress through mind-numbingly difficult content that takes everybody in the group focusing and playing at the top of their game to get past. Required tier progression(for each expansion), attunements, resist encounters, the sense of community between raiders in Vanilla and BC would all be things that I would enjoy. Hell, I'd even settle for Ulduar-style hard content as long as they do not nerf it. Have an easy version for the casuals and have a soul-crushingly difficult version for the hardcore. Just don't nerf the hard content into oblivion like WoW did or allow your entire population to hop right into the final tier of raiding for the expansion by running faceroll dungeons.Posted in: SWTOR News

I'm surprised Alderaan isn't higher on that list. The little bit I've seen from illustrations, trailers, and screenshots only deepens my interest.Posted in: Podcast
The Consular is still my first choice and I doubt that'll change unless the Knight has some sort of bard-like spec with aura twisting.

Rocked a Nostromo speed pad for Wolfie ET back in the day. That's as far as I'd be willing to transition though. My binds are 1-8, Shift+ 1-8, E/Q, Shift+E/Q, R/F/C, Shift+R/F/C, B/V, Shift+B/V, G1-G-6. I played a healer as well and I had all sorts of key binds+mouse clicks set to different heals.Posted in: Podcast
Point being, on a standard X-box controller would you really want to type in the damn "Konami Code" just so you could attempt to cast your lightning drain on them? All the while they are circle strafing you and picking you apart. A controller could work on a PVE server, but you'd be slaughtered in PVP.
Fact remains you need a mouse for those sorts of games if you want to compete. They tried back in the days of Quake 3 to allow the controller jockeys on Dreamcast to go head-to-head with us PC boys with a cross-platform map pack. They never stood a chance.

Playing an MMO/RTS/FPS with a controller is like trying to play Operation with BBQ tongs....Posted in: Podcast

[Vader]Noooooooooooooooooo![/Vader] I'm still of the opinion that there should be some random selections, but the ability to buy-in for a small fee would be far more beneficial to the game as a whole. How many people out there who wont get selected would give their arm to help test this game, and give solid feedback to the team? I really don't want to miss out on giving vital input during a crucial stage of development so that little Billy can run around on Tython mindlessly whacking mobs with his lightsaber because he lied about his age on the application and never intended to give actual feedback. Allow us to buy-in, and kick people who don't give constructive feedback bi-weekly. Let them buy back in if they want the fund coming in would only help improve the conditions of the servers before launch.Posted in: SWTOR News

At this point, Loekii, the debate is over. There is a trinity-esque system in place.Posted in: SWTOR News

How long until you think they'll burn themselves out and leave the forums behind? I'm hoping it's rather soon.Posted in: SWTOR News
