    Is anyone playing this game? its the most amazing MMO ive ever played. You are truly part of the Star Wars universe. They really captured the movie feel.

    what are your classes? What level are you? Do you raid? I'm sure there are nerds out there! I just need to find them! :)

    Oh and hey to everyone I haven't seen in forever. :c

    I just bought a new video card and pwr sup so I can play. I beta'd it for a cpl months but the lag was horrendous due to the shitty on board card this machine came with. I can run Rift at ultimate quality with no lag now so I'm hopeful that sor will play fine.

    I have Star Wars installed on my computer but I haven't got around to it. The reviews have been great so far.

    they had a free beta weekend before the game went gold and the graphics were incredible looked crystal but low level players were havin severe issues because of the incredibly high requirements so when the game launched they dropped the frame rate just a tad. high end systems notice but most dont. they said down the road they will prolly figure out a way to make it uber again.

    Does it have any depth to story or is it typical Lucas CGI bullshit?

    Dark Forces II is still beloved because of the cool story not because it has gee wiz graphics.




    Damn kids get off my lawn! :grouch:

    I threw a nvidia Geforce GTX 560 ti video card in. I had a spare 475 watt pwr supply from an old machine that I use to power the card. It's a power whore. It wants 500 watts but with only 2 pig tails being used it's putting out enough to run the card fine. I need to find a +500 watt supply that will fit into this asus tower that has 2 sli 6 pin power outs plus the 24 pin mb connector.

    The story is class specific, so depending on the side and the character type you pick it's different for each. And to further that point, each story is very well written and fleshed out, making it very immersive ( some more than others, as well as depending on your class ). Each dungeon or raid has some kick ass stories and make it very interesting, unlike wow where it's kill this boss or pull this lever.

    I got to about lvl 36 on my Jedi Sage and just got bored with the game in general. What's the point of grinding out another MMO toon ?

    But if you do play, the Empire is cool. You can shoot electricity from your hands like 10 minutes in!

    every class has its own story line you follow from level 1-50. if yer a jedi knight yer saving the galaxy on the trail of the emperor. if yer a trooper yer dealing with the general and the military angle a consular has something to do with a conspiracy from inside the jedi council. i only played the sith side on beta not too familiar with it. theres no jar jar binks horse shit that ive seen.

    Noice.

    I've never been into MMO stuff. I'm old school.

    I still love playing Empire at War or its ugly parent, Rebellion.

    Old skool bitches.

    Old. :nag:
