So now that TOR is FTP...
« on: November 15, 2012, 08:05:52 PM »
Or even if you've been playing it and still have a membership....

Is anyone going to be playing?

I'm patching it up at the moment, had a chance to play it on a friends account months ago and didn't invest too much into the character, as I didn't want to pour all that effort into a character I would never be able to use once I got my own account. So once the initial patches are done, I'm going to start playing and wondering if anyone else is going to, or will continue to play.

There are apparently new space missions, I might wander in just to see the new content before I bail again.

I am still playing it at the moment as a subscriber but plan on going F2P eventually since I only play it casually.  I'm over on Ebon Hawk, pretending I know how to roleplay between grinding out levels.  I still enjoy the game.

Patch 1.5 notes:

More robes have been adjusted so that their backsides are not inappropriately large when worn.

Best bug fix ever, or worst bug fix ever?

Ebon Hawk seems to be where all the role players went to. Did they merge that other big RP server into Ebon Hawk? (sorry I can't even remember the server I was on anymore)

Maybe I'll restart up my Journal and play some more.

Story - Asha'ara - Erotic Sexual Life of a Twi'lek Girl (Some entries may contain NC-H or Ex)
A Star Wars: The Old Republic series of journal entries by a young Twi'lek girl trying to make her way in the galaxy as she gets caught up in misadventures and sexual predicaments.  It contains a good deal of graphic sexual content and a number of adult images.

They did merge most of the "super RP servers" into Ebon Hawk, yes.  And thank you for the reading material; this looks fantastic.

Did anyone else think this was going to be about digital downloads from a major publishing house?

Or does remembering that FTP = File Transfer Protocol make me Tor's target audience?

It's a little better if you've ever been a subscriber or ever bought something from their shop. Then you're just treated like you have herpes.

I did not think this, no, but only because I'm familiar enough with the game and the practice to know what was intended. I was only introduced to FTP, the protocol, about five months ago, actually, when it was part of a new job. I think it may have hurt my geek cred to not already know about it. :|

Eh.  I enjoyed TOR for a while, got my Sorcerer up to the level cap, and then just... lost interest.  The RP was alright, but end level content was pretty much all PvP it seemed.  And despite other people, it always felt like such a single player game to me.

I'll probably subscribe and do the premium thing for a little while, try for a month at a time and see how I like it. Gonna try both Sith and Republic side.

I love my BH too much to abandon him.  Not sure why, I mean, yeah there is very little to do End Game (so far, I mean, it's not been an entire year yet, WoW had rather boring End Game too for two years before it got the bright idea of Dailies), but I love my two gun dood.

Considering giving it a try, but I've seen the F2P restrictions and they were.... not encouraging ("Sucking radioactive donkey balls that are on fire" as a friend put it). However, I'd be interested in RPing in there given the opportunity. Certainly more likely to give it a poke if there's other people around to chat/RP/etc with.

*chuckles*  I'll admit, In-game RP was the only thing that really kept my interest, especially once I'd finished the story mode aspect of it.  Once you've done all the companion side quests and finished the story, that's about it it seems.  At least it was for me.

That's reassuring! XD

I have an account but I am still on the fence about using it. I have plenty else to play and it just doesn't seem worth it. They could have given a little more options to F2P people. At least the bank. I would be more inclined to join in if I was assured bag space. God knows I know all about bag space in MMOs. :P No bank space = no fun.

I'm confused about preferred status. What exactly is it? It says to make any purchase of 4.99.  Does that mean if I've ever made any purchase or do you have to make a monthly purchase? How does that work?

My status: I'm currently an owner of the game(bought it new) and I played it for several months previously.


*Edit*

I found it.

Of all the MMORG's I've played, SWTOR was fun for a very short amount of time for me. The RPG part of the game was good until I got to the end of my class quest and couldn't finish it without corpse running cuz it was bugged so bad. The end game sucked for sure and the PVP was fun for awhile. I may have been to used to RIFT and WoW but eh, I only stayed around for about a month after hitting endgame, mostly doing PVP, on RIFT I leveled 3 characters to the level cap, did mostly PVP and left. Tried it again later and lost due to not finding any real interaction. WoW I played for years... eventually migrated over to the most well known adult sex server if you'd even call it adult... but that was fun for awhile again just for the RP and some PVP here and there. As far as TOR goes though, I wouldn't go back even though it's FTP. It felt like a single player game other then the PVP.

I'm going to hazard a guess that nobody tried the F2P or stuck around if they did. Wouldn't blame ya
