Meh. Reskinned WoW. Anyone willing to bet?

The only thing I found interesting were the space battles. Turns out those are just railshooters, though. Saw a video of them the other day. Looked like one of those ancient side-scrollers, only with (slightly) better graphics.

I've got access too, but can log on.
They changed their password policy in october, which forces you to change it to fit their new requirements. But when I try to change mine, I get an error message, so I can't do it....

So I just got them on the phone, and after 45mn of waiting, the guy tells me that he can only act on the security questions, not the password. If I have problems with my password, I need to send them an email, which I did, 4 days ago....

It is more like alpha. SWTOR been in beta for years as far as I know and the current beta weekends seem more like a marketing move from EA. With the game coming out in few weeks getting to play demo is exciting.

Tried to play a bit yesterday as Imperial Agent on German PvP server and first impressions are mostly positive - nothing revolutionary to set it apart from other MMOs, but fun setting and gameplay nevertheless. Looks polished to Bioware standards. Even got pwnd multiple times by some super-mini boss which reminded me what does the M in MMO stand for. Who would talk to Germans though? Then I tired Jedi Knight on French PvP server and the fuckers did not wanna talk to me in English. Go figure .. ;)

I think this beta test is a stress test of their servers for the main part......... plus bugs that will show up with 500 people all in the same spot might not appear when there's only 20 people there.

It is, partially, for European customers anyway as NA ones been, for obvious reasons, stress-testing for some time now which caused an uproar among Europeans on SWTOR boards, second class customers .., even possibly pushing release dates for NA and Europe on the same day. Yes it is beta. Seeing you are from the so-called Red Zone, where do you play? The German server I am on is called T1 ..something.

SS Mike_L? With Non disclosure agreement lifted it is not a problem (net is full of them), unless you are interested in hmm specific stuff.

Yeah, I'm in the red zone which isn't included in the global release, also known as 90% of the world's population. My dictionary must differ from that used in the US. :P

I have a L11 Jedi Sentinel on Rubat Crystal (NA server) and a L4 I think it is Smuggler on Adari Vaal (Europe).

So ironically, I received a satisfaction questionnaire, asking me about my experience on the week-end beta.
So I answered twice, on the first and the second page, that I couldn't play, because of their crappy client service.
And from the 3rd page, I've been forced to answer questions liks "what class did you play ?" or "what server did you log on ?", even though I had selected the option " I didn't play the beta" at least 3 times...
3 weeks before the game launch, that's not reassuring...

I've gotting into this beta weekend,too and yes, it is exactly that. The games brings nothing new to the table, expect for some half-assed story-telling. Nothing to see her. Moving on (and waiting for GW2)-
