The Old Republic Stats

EA and BioWare announce more numbers from the launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic, their new Force-powered MMORPG. Word is: "Over this past weekend, players continued to flood the servers of the fastest-growing subscription MMO in history, immersing themselves in the game for over 5.5 million hours. Star Wars: The Old Republic is also proving to be a critical smash hit, with an average review score of 88*, making it the highest rated MMO of 2011, while also winning over 105 industry awards, including “Best Multiplayer Game of 2011” from MSNBC. Enthusiasm for The Old Republic has also gone viral, as over 1.6 million fans have viewed the Jedi vs. Sith Freeze Mob in Times Square on launch day, making it one of the most viewed videos on YouTube during this past weekend." Here is a breakdown:

  • Over 60 million in-game hours – roughly equivalent to watching all six Star Wars movies over 4 million times
  • Over 850,000 Sith Warriors and over 810,000 Jedi Knights created
  • Over 260 million quests completed
  • Over 44 million PvP battles
  • Over 9 million space combat missions completed
  • Over 3 billion NPCs killed

Has anyone here tried Dungeons and Dragons Online (DDO)?

Yep, DDO rocks! So does LOTR. I'm back to EQ2 atm - the world, plethora of classes/races and crafting are still far superior to ever other MMO out there IMO. As for DDO it takes a while to get into it and get it, so to speak, but when you do and meet some people to run dungeons with it's hella fun. The dynamic style combat is so much more better than any other MMO. Monks and bards are particular fun - for me at any rate. I haven't been back to DDO in year - as I wanted to let some new content get in - but will definitely be heading back soon, same with LOTR.

Yeah, I'll have to check out those two. I'm a big Conan fan but have avoided all of this thinking they were stupid. In the case of DDO, your stats and party matters. You can breeze through the first couple of levels and then it takes the pussy gloves off and you start seeing some real depth to the game. I was pleasantly surprised and pummeled at the same time.

The sad thing is that we have to resort to MMO's (often in single player mode, for me) in the Year 2011 to get any kind of complexity or challenge.

They have drag and drop inventories in DDO. I wouldn't normally think of that as a feature, just something to take for granted. Sad, sad days.
