Icon Star Wars: The Old Republic mmo

I've been watching this game for a while, it looks pretty cool but I was a little dissapointed that they left out Revan and the Jedi Exile. But overall it looks pretty sweet and should be a fun one to play, but what do you guys think of it?

Bioware said it is going to be bigger than all there previous games combined, so having been obsessed with KOTOR and KOTOR 2 for many years that's sorta exciting right there.....

the biggest problem I see with any star wars MMO, is making it so Jedi or Sith arnt the end all be all class, if they go any route that includes non force wielders.

I think it will flop for being an MMO based in a world where the strong are NOT many in number. Do you know why WoW is popular? even though it does self glorificate the player characters abit, no player character is a class that would be few in number in the world. WAR is similar, because its based on a pure army peice board game.

The fact is, Star wars MMOs have to either be either totally neglecting the force on their players, or EVERYONE can use the force like they are masters. and either way, as an MMO, that will flop.

Bah, I don't care about the inevitable class inbalance, I just demand we find Revan froze in carbonite or something, because the whole 'he ranoff into the uknown and was never heard from again' really sucks.

I think its really cool that there is gonna be a MMO for Star Wars again, also that its mostly based on KOTOR era, but they call it the Old Republic instead of Knights of the Old Republic.

The only major problem I have is that they should have done a KOTOR III before this because it sounds like this is replacing a KOTOR III. Id much rather play a full single player RPG and finish the KOTOR series before playing an MMO. Oh and how could I forget that its only gonna be for the PC even though both KOTORs came out only for the Xbox.

See, I feel that there are just some games that should *not* be MMORPG's, and this sort is one of them. Yeah, 20 million users, and all of them are Jedi/sith, that just doesn't work for me...

And yeah, I think DarKKKKK hit it square with the idea that it's almost like they're stepping away from a KotR III. I love the KotR series, and can only think of what it'd look like/play like on one of today's next gen consoles.

Level me up! I, too, wish to storm the lands of mortals reaping what is truly mine...but for now, I am but a wee spot of energy...

Clicky!

Personally, I think that there needs to be a spin-off game where you play as HK-47 doing mercenary jobs and erasing those useless organic meatbags!

Unfortuantely this is what the Knights of the old republic series is going to end up as and for me, A gaming broadband-less, KOTOR megafan, It's hitting me hard. All other Star wars MMOs were complete fuck ups. THe best part of the KOTOR series was the storyline and if they get rid of the solid storyline with an MMO story , which are nearly always shit, then this will be a massive flop. And if it does flop there will be Mass effect 2, Jade empire 2, maybe a few more game before they go back to it.....

If you shit in one hand and wish in the other we all know which one will fill up faster.

And as I walk in the valley of the shadow of death I will have no fear For I am the scariest mother f*cker in that goddamned valley!

I loved KOTOR, even though EVERYTHING you did made someone, somewhere, hate you. I played that for AGES until Halo reached into my head, pulled Star Wars out, and made it make Halo a sammich.

This sounds like one of those games people will wig out over, and eventually it will be release day, mobs of screaming forumgoers will converge, and figure out the game is AMAZING or that it is the worst thing since Satan was invented. It'll be one of the extremes, although I'm hopeful it will be good. They can't mess up a Star Wars game, can they?

You'll forgive me, but you must be mistaken. I've met your makers, and they don't even know your name...

the online adventures are terrible. I've been on a lot of servers for that game and it's basically a chatroom now. So much so that I was kicked out for taking out my lightsaber.... Not hitting anyone, just swinging it about... I will hate to see something like that happen again....

I loved KOTOR; then KOTOR II was released as a buggy, incompletepeice of shit that broke this gamers heart.

KOTOR and its sequal were both released on PC and xbox. They were not xbox exclusive.

they do plan to have more classes than just jedi/sith (according to their sight there will be a different storyline for each class as well)

IMHO, nothing can be as big of a failure as SWG was, nor can anything be as much of a worshipped pile of shit as WoW is.

considering how far along they are, and how ambitious of a plan they have, its to early to tell. *fingers crossed*

Peace is a lie, there is only passion.

Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
My fluff so far, plz read and give feed back
