Trying Secret World actually at the moment, not too shabby

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

I went back and was surprised to see Ebon Hawk had a little life in it.

I didn't actually see anyone role playing though.

I still have it installed but haven't been back to play since I checked it out.

You must not be hitting up the Fleet that much then.  There is usually a good deal of RP going on in the cantina areas and I even found some RP guilds having events on Tatooine.

Fleet is where I went first and stood for a couple hours.

I'm sure if I went during primetime and everyday I'd run into people but I just didn't put the effort into it.

I don't know anyone playing any more and it gets boring sitting around or dancing by myself for hours on end. The actual game pve itself bores me too much to occupy my time otherwise.

Besides, I like to do adult(xxx) role playing and it takes a long time to try and find other adult players. I like my MMORGP role play the same as I like my Forum RP(see my O/O's for details.)

Oh, I agree with you that at times, the fleet is absolutely dead.  I've seen most RP happening around the later parts of the evening and into the morning, at least at that location.  I wouldn't be completely disheartened by it though if you are truly interested in the game.  There is also a good resource and forums site for TOR RP you might find useful:

http://swtor-rp.com/

I'm also an adult RPer, so I know just what you mean.  I dig role playing relationships between characters and the like.

I just want to role play. I know the site you speak of, I used to be very active there but it's strictly non-adult. There's also a distinct and distasteful hostility towards anyone that likes a little adult subject matter in their RP. Not to mention the rampant lore elitism.

My personal experience with that site gave me a distinct feel of hypocasy on the part of those running it. They liked to promote the ever-living crap out of their "special snowflake" characters, some of whom were related to or decended from lore characters, but at the same time they would crack down on others doing the same.

Sadly, that's the sort of attitude I've seen from a lot of 'RP bigwigs' in many online communities, and why I'm not a fan of heavily organised RP communities for MMOs and such. They tend to breed an elite few who run on a 'do as I say, not as I do' rule while being the self-appointed 'gods of RP'

OK, rant over. Have a cookie.

Force sensitivity does not pass genetically right? You are either born a force user or you aren't?

That is what made me roll my eyes when I saw players roll the great great (X times here) grandfather of (canon) characters here.

I mostly use that site for checking out a few of the flavor articles and there are some decent folks on the forums but otherwise, yeah, it can be pushy and disdainful at times. 

I'm with you, Moraline.  My favorite experiences with MMO Rping have been with people who enjoyed adult RP.  Hell, it made me stick around WoW for three years.  For me, that's saying something.

I'm still fiddling with the classes at the moment, haven't really decided what to focus on...

And deciding if I want to get off of FTP

I'm full sub with TOR.  It's Star Wars, and I LOVE it.  Not to mention being a huge fan of Bioware's vision of the setting.  I find it's worth it.  TO ME.  Most here would likely disagree.

They are most welcome to. :)

Yeah, I'll probably just subscribe and get it over with, in the meantime I'll play with some classes to see what I like on each side.

Hmmm, I do like Sith Inquisitor, but I dun like the fact that it's either stealth or heals, considered so by the games standards anyways. As for the Alliance side, Smuggler might be interesting to try.

Alliance side?! /smack

Republic, yo.  Republic.

Sith Sorcerer is all about the crazy lightning too!  I highly recommend trying out the Lightning skill tree as it is just purple DPS fun.  Good survivability too while leveling.

I has a massive sad. I knew my subscription was ending yesterday, and I had a ton of money, so I liquidated everything disposable I owned on the market to try and get the Rocket Boots II legacy unlock. I had enough money to do it, but when I logged back in an hour later, I'd gone FTP and now had 1million+ in escrow.

The part I'm most upset about is that they want money for me to be able to hide my head slot. Now I know what they designed all those butt-ugly helmets/hats, it was insidious planning for now.

Heh, I don't doubt it! I went F2P this weekend to see what it is like and to save a little cash but I'm not that impressed.  It's like they have limited every part of the UI they could think of as well as most of the core mechanics of the game.  I mean really, increased pricing from the vendors and reduced experience point gain?

Yeah, Bio is punishing non subscribers.  I see the game completely dying out soon.  I honestly want to test out the secret world but am iffy on that game as well.

I'm enjoying the hell out of the game and I have no intention of stopping my subscription.

Though to be honest, how is Bioware punishing non-subscribers? I know its limited, but you get to play the game for free. It how the saying goes, "you get what you pay for."  I'm not trying to be mean about it, but bioware is going for this payment model because they know it doesn't have the number of players like say World of Warcraft.

It works with other MMORPG games where you get to play for free, and as you get into it..you will want more access to it. So you pay for small things here and there.

You get the class story lines for free.  Everything else you have to fork out money for, unless you are okay with limited access to pvp, instances, raids oh and what gear you can equip.  Also with the UI limitations, storage and access to the trading post in game.
