The Old Republic Trailer

The Star Wars: The Old Republic Website features the final "choose your side" trailer hashing out another character class debate for BioWare's MMORPG, which is currently in early access mode, and set to officially launch next week. Here's word on the clip: "In the fourth and final entry of 'Choose Your Side,' members of the Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ development team discuss each of the different classes in the game, putting them against each other to see who reigns supreme. This time around the Smuggler faces off against the Sith Warrior to see which class has the upper hand in a one-on-one engagement."

I'm still baffled why people feel that having to wait in line for a game you're paying a monthly fee for is acceptable...?

I don't think the subscription period has kicked in, yet. This is like a free play for those who pre-ordered.
Well I just pre-ordered and got free-play time in without a wait at all.

I blame Skyrim, for making every other game feel like shit.

I blame the MMORPG industry, for being endlessly derivative and repetitive.

Just got my account setup, since amazon is shipping orders early. 25 minute wait/300 in queue on my server.

At least in the short term, looking at server queues, I'd say it's easily a success. Fun part is what it looks like in 6 months.

All that means, is that other games need to climb to a higher level of quality.

By the by, anyone feel like giving their live impressions so far? I'm still holding off on it. Damn beta was a gigantic clusterfuck of epic proportions for me and I could never get it to work properly.

I really wanted to like this game, but having played the beta weekends I just couldn't connect with the characters, story or environment. I fear the MMORPG genre may finally be dead to me.

I feel for ya... No queues for us on Sith Wyrm (Empire) though : )

As I was logging out, I rechecked the queue times and see a west coast server with a two hour wait. Holy shit.

We got our SI's to 16 tonight... Should finish out this planet and get our rides early tomorrow. Then finally I'll get to see some new content : )

She's loving the story driven aspect.

There have been enough improvements from Beta to Early Access that I would say it's hard to tell how the mid-game is. But from what I was told from full time beta people it really opens up.

So, updated impressions on the game now that the beta's been out for a while? How's the midgame?

We're still several days away from launch and these Queue's are already getting a little nuts. Was 30 min for my server earlier, now it's an hour. Server performance has been outstanding though, once you're in I've never been disconnected and I'm seeing very little lag.

Pleasantly surprised by the crafting system. Doesn't stop you from playing the game, very easily fits into playing the game where you can be crafting over time while you're completing missions.

Just got my spaceship and having fun see those missions finally. EA was pretty clever shipping the game early, I already got my copy from Amazon so if I decide at hte last minute I don't want to bite the bullet then I have to ship the game back and deal with all that.

Clever move EA.
