You might have been selected for the NEXT beta weekend, Rey.

If I do get the beta installed(still don't know where to download it), I'm going for a female Trooper to play on the beta with. I don't want to know the story on my future main(Bounty Hunter) but it'll be nice to get used to the mechanics. Playing female because it's voiced by Jennifer "Femshep" Hale.

They limit that even in-game already by not letting some of the races already in-game be Jedi/siths. Would of been as simple as just using a race such as http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Shistavanen (was one of the main ones I remembered off the top of my head) for the smuggler and trooper job. They just took the path of least resistance by choosing races that took the least effort for ease of armor modeling and animations since having a digitrade race for example requires a completely different animation for walking and running. Why I cringe anytime I see people complain about Blizzards models or animations considering how much more effort they actually put into their models compared to other companies.

Lol, well that would be the only reason I'd get into TOR. (The story seems iffy to me, ehhh)

No clawed beast race = no Grimtale paying your subscription fee

Okay, so the game ground to a halt after the starting planet. The game is a month from release but so much is poorly explained.

I've been waiting for this game for years, way back when they first announced it and I've only seen the release date get pushed year after year. Now it's finally coming out and I already pre-ordered the CE, IT BETTER BE GODDAMN WORTH IT!

A part of me wants to see a game succeed other than WoW so they have competition. Then on the other hand I want ToR to fail since even their devs have acted like the Warhammer devs with the whole 'lol we'll beat WoW' type mentality.

It's not going to "fail", but it's not going to instantly kill WoW. I'm hoping it's good, simply to make Blizz be on their toes. I've got to say, their dungeons are pretty good. Very linear, could use some tuning, but hot damn they're cinematic.

I still have 5GB to download, maybe tomorrow I can play it. =\

I have not had any intentions of buying the game, and I forgot that I signed up for beta opt-in some months ago. I know only a tiny bit about the game so I have no idea what to expect from it.

I dunno if it's because of lag, or the laptops system specs, but I can hardly play the game... it... seems fun, but it's really hard to tell. The cinematic intro was great.

Here's the thing, while I'm not necessarily amazed to the point of dropping my WoW subscription, the game really shows off how long in the tooth WoW and its engine has become. It's not really something Blizz can fix, but I'm hoping that they're keeping this stuff in mind for Titan.

Goddamn it. 8 hour install, and the game won't launch. I keep getting "application failed to initialized properly."

You are talking about the Codex, right? It's been in need of some work from everyone I've heard talk about. Advanced classes are poorly explained, and stuff like that. It kinda puts a crimp in the game from everything I hear.

I couldn't even figure out how to access the codex aside from when I discovered new entries (It's pretty unintuitive for it to be bound to the same button as the mission log). And yeah, it was really fucking hard to choose my advanced class- especially one that was so integral to the way you play the game.

By the way, would it kill them to give us some utility or group oriented abilities before level 10? We're allowed to join dungeon groups but it's quite literally impossible to have a tank or healer before you select your advanced class. If they gave the inquisitor a low level heal that would've made things so much simpler.

Okay, three installs and for some reason the fucking launcher won't initialize. I cannot play. Waste of a beta weekend...

Yeah, this is actually the case, I got so stoked when I got the mail and saw more people were getting beta access this weekend that I thought this was the only weekend.

You're not missing too much Exxile. At least for me, the game is so laggy it's borderline unplayable.

That's what I'm hearing. Oh well. Maybe I'll just go ahead and resub to WoW.
