I rolled a Sith Sorcie on Lord Adrass and am up to about level 13 now.  My main is on Lord Praven and is a level 45 Sith Warrior.  I'm going to work on my little sorcie as I have time, though.

I am sad.  They nerfed my operative and I just got it to level 50. :-(

Looks like they nerfed smugglers the same way, according to the patch notes!

Not that I have any idea what was and wasn't really nerfed.  I'm still downloading the patches and such to start the game.

So any ideas for the guild basis/name/whatever for an Elliquiy guild?  Guessing the guild will be Empire side at this point.  We seem to have enough people now to make a go of the situation.

Amusing.  But it makes me wonder.  Does Yahtzee actually LIKE to game?  He's always so negative...

He mentions up front he played for a week and only managed to get through the smuggler's opening sequence, pretty much.

In response to the harpoon... can't you turn companion skills on and off?

Actually, they fixed that with a recent patch, as far as I know.

Honestly it wasn't that bad to begin with, just seemed odd to be a ranged fighter with your companion pulling people to you.

That sounds like all of Yahtzee's reviews for the past few months.

The nerf affected their hidden strike ability mostly which is their opening move when coming out of stealth.  It doesn't do as much damage now.  CC's for half the time (if you have Jarring Strike), and acid blade which complements it lost 20% of the armor penetration it provides.

Its his style; emphasise the negative and play up the bad points. I have no doubt he played it, mind you. Its just that getting upset about Yatzee not liking a game isl ike getting upset over the sky being blue.
Which is why I don't normally watch him.  He's...  rather sad as a reviewer.

I'm in!  Puttered around last night while I wasn't feeling well on my Inquisitor, got him up to lvl... 9 or 10, though I logged before hitting the trainer for my last level.  I'm having a blast with it, it really does suck you in, make you feel like you are part of a story.   And so much purple lighting thrown everywhere!  MUAHHAHAHAHAHA!

I do!  Sure, it has a lot of standard MMO traits, but it really does suck you into the story, especially the Sith Inquisitor line.  Man, I hate that damn overseer.  Every time it won't let me lightning him into a pile of ash, and then mix that ash with water and flour so I can bake it into a cake that I can summarily stab, I seeeeeeeethe.

It's not that he's snarky that bothers me. It's that he lies about games.

Like he said that if you're in a group and someone takes a light side choice, and you take a dark side choice, and they win, you get light side points. That's not true, and would turn people off from the game based on that not true point. That's irresponsible reviewing, imo.

Anyways, going to be playing a bit tonight I think :D

How many games has he been 'positive about'. Hmmm.. Rock Band (sorta), Bioshock (sorta).. I can't think of anything definite.

Totally going to roll a Bounty Hunter as an alt.  They look crazy fun.  But for now, I've just beaten and enslaved my first minion with my Inquisitor, and life is good.
