Well, to be honest, I haven't heard much about game, but it seems to me before major overhaul it was better game than TOR will be. TOR is just generic MMO, with shitty stylised graphics.

Maybe if you only look at it as an MMO.

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.

Bullshit. The Old Republic is (without doubt) going to be one of the finest MMO`s in history. And there is nothing wrong with graphics, I like them.

Do I see a fanboy here?

You re entitled to your opinion, I'm entitled to mine. I thought that SW MMO would be much more, and I do want more from MMO if I'm gonna play it. They are is not one innovative thing in TOR to differentiate it from any other generic MMO/WOW clone. Graphics IMO looks bad, it's not bad per se, I just don't like that style of graphics, looks too cartoonish, I don't see why they went with it, realistic graphics would like much better.

So, no one is forbidding you to play it, I wish you good time, but don't call someone's opinion bollocks if you don't agree.

Actually there is something that differentiates it from WoW, EVE, NWN and all the others. TOR actually gives a shit about its story, enough to care not just about what you are doing but why you are doing it. And not for the BS reason of "Go kill those five womp-rats, we can make some boots from them and you can get your bearings," or something like that. As for the graphics I think they are quite good but when it comes down to it i'd prefer an immersive game rather a graphically good-looking one that lacks depth.

As for Galaxies I was a Post-NGE player, I joined around Update 4 and lasted until Update 9 or 10. Truthfully it was Update 6 that everything became utterly shit, true the NGE fucked a lot up but the game was still enjoyable before the dreaded Update 6. When it became impossible to do anything alone, when once a single friend and I could farm NK-Necrosis for Darth Bane's lightsabre crystal and lone players could enter the Death Watch bunker and make Mandalorian armor and Crafters who had zero combat abilities could walk past enemies without drawing aggro, nobody could do anything alone anymore. We needed groups and that just made everything hard. How the fuck are we meant to make Mandalorian armor, the rarest armor in the game, when the components only drop maybe 5% of the time from some of the toughest elite enemies in-game, and now we have to do it in groups of eight and share out the measly liquids that do drop. Took me a while to quit but I did eventually and didn't look back.

I think this was it's greatest achievement and downfall at the same time. I loved the fact that the crafting system was so strong, and the player economy was so varied and interesting, but at that point it just felt like i had another job.

There was bollocks all story and end-game content, so most nights i'd just be farming hides and parts to sell to armor-crafters to get money to buy pretty things to put in my utterly pointless house.

getting a good community on the role play servers made it more tolerable, but in the end it was the players who were making the game interesting, and SOE put fuck all into it other than the framework.

I played MMO games over last ten years and still think ORIGINAL version of SWG was most fulfilling mmo game i have ever played. Really social and true sandbox game. Before sony fucked it up....

KOTOR mmo dont interest me at all nomore. Checked most of interviews and videos so far and it doesnt impress me much. What can i say, lvls again. That and so many other things for here to write.

Bring back original version of SWG, go play Eve online or make new version of Ultima online. Thats all i ask. And clear bugs of Darkfall and add content

I'm curious, what servers did all of you play on? I played on Gorath exclusively, though I doubt anyone else here did.
