Guest Blog: SWTOR not going to be the Wow killer.

Posted in About SWTOR on January 7, 2012 by SwtorPvP

So, you have left World of Warcraft to go play that new game Star Wars, The Old Republic….umm, why?  What were you thinking, seriously?!?   What has made you want to leave the best MMO game out there?  What does that game have to offer you that WoW no longer does?

Last night when I was playing WoW getting ready to raid, when someone started talking about SWTOR and he said it was like playing something that was “pure and clean”.  He said, he enjoys playing both games but will not leave WoW to play SWTOR, he intends to play them both but WoW is his home.  That means most of you are just interested in something new, but it will soon wear off.  You will come back to WoW you always do.

SWTOR charges you $60 bucks for their game when WoW is only $40, really you are going to make me pay $20 more??  SWTOR will be just like all the other MMOs that have come along, i.e. Warhammer, Aion, and Rift. They said that these games were going to be the WoW killers but alas not so. SWTOR is a copy and paste, another reskin of WoW,

SWTOR will not be the WoW killer, the only thing that will ever bring down WoW is WoW itself.  It may just happen with its next expansion Mist of Pandaria, seriously Pandas!!!  What is going to be the next big bad ass monster we get to kill in this expansions???

Seriously in all honesty I must say that I would like to eventually play SWTOR, maybe when they offer a free trial or drop the cost down some.  I prefer to play with friends or my brothers and none of them are playing it at this time.  So, going out and playing it on my own is probably not something I will do. I am sure that it is a great game and possibly could be a real contender if they can maintain their membership.  They need to make sure that they have the end game content that keeps the players happy once they reach maximum level.  You can only level so many alts before even that gets boring.

Put this video up if you want to not the best comparison video out there but I agree with what he says for the most part. 

Update 2.

Posted in Progress Updates....... on January 2, 2012 by SwtorPvP

So here is a update to me and my progress in this game. I stopped playing my ops healer and re rolled on the server ” The  Crucible Pits” playing a Jedi Shadow Tank spec. I am level 43 at the moment looking to hit 50 with in a week or so.

I have to admit the story is fucking amazing and being evil seems to be a lot more enjoyable as long as moving to the different server. The reason I left was there were no republic players at all.

So the main part of my guild decided to roll republic, we have four Ruin guilds on that server with a Empire rival DaraMactire supposedly the best PVP guild in the world : /. It is getting heated up between us both with youtube videos being posted by both. It is very humorous in my opinion and is keeping the game refreshing, nothing is better than world pvp.

I am still working on how to stream I think i need more ram and if anyone can help me with that it would be great. But here are some screen shots of my new toon.

My SWTOR weekend (Progress update 1)

Posted in Progress Updates....... on December 20, 2011 by SwtorPvP

So here is a a update…. I started playing through EGA (early game access) on Thursday and here it is Monday, so yes I had a very nerd weekend.

So over my weekend I took some screen shots of my adventures. This first is my “toon” Irons and a picture of the Hutball arena. Hutball is similar to football.

There is a ball placed in the middle and you work as a team to get the ball to the opposing teams side. You can pass the ball and it also can be intercepted.

Than it is two of me healing in a random flashpoint. As of now build is a Imperial Agent “Operative”  and as of now I am 21 points into the medicine tree.

Next is a couple SS “screen shots” of Nar Shaddaa and in my opinion one of the most colorful and outstanding looking places I have seen so far in the game.

The last three are me on Tatooine trying to kill a world boss and dying in the process… and me healing a flashpoint called Cademimu. I have to say that was the most enjoyable group I have experienced in the game so far.

More pics will be coming especially once I get closer to max level 50 and the end game content after that. Once I figure how to not record in crappy quality I will have videos.

If you need a SWTOR fix while you wait for EGA do like I do and check out Towelliee’s channel on twitch.tv.  He speaks his mind and has some great points. Twitch also has a lot of directors streaming a lot of the most popular video games out there check it out and nerd out.

Here is a link to his live stream http://www.twitch.tv/towelliee check him out.

My beta experience

Posted in About SWTOR on December 14, 2011 by SwtorPvP

So I got to do participate in the Thanksgiving weekend Beta test and the last beta test for SWTOR.

On my first weekend I got my Sith Warrior (Juggernaut) Up to level 24 was tanking pretty crappy, I wont lie. I will say the story really drew me in, it was almost as if a I was watching a interactive movie and I was the star. The questing is very familiar as is the combat mechanics. FYI NO AUTO ATTACK.  It was smooth to a extent, but when everything was on, O man it was beautiful.

This game has everything I could want in a game. Number one it’s fucking Star Wars and number two is a god damn MMO.  I really am looking forward to be apart of this community and guild. I also am look to go far progression wise with my guild.

Here is a update for myself I ordered Oct 13th and still no EGA my room mate ordered Sept 28th and got in. So tomorrow should be the day. Hopefully from that point on I will posting videos and blogs of my experience leveling up and progressing end game. For the Empire

Here is a walk-through the Imperial agent on the starting planet of Hutta, commentary by the most famous TotalBiscuit.

Thank you for the videos TB keep them coming.

Early Access Begins

Posted in About SWTOR with tags , on December 14, 2011 by SwtorPvP

Im sure most you all know that early game access (EGA) has begun. The game does not officially release until Dec 2oth. So who got in and from what I have read it was first day preorders if not everyone who preordered in July got in. I am thinking they will try to have all preorders in by this weekend.

I see no reason marketing wise how it would be a bad idea for Bioware considering as of Dec 12th the numbers for preorder sales are 939,358 units have been sold.
