I am fan of STAR WARS lore and i never hide it (that's why i am the owner of this domain) but Swtor is the best mmo that i have ever played and i have played all the mmos from uo and after !!!
Two weekends in beta and i didn't stopped playing your game . Swtor is not just the KOTOR 3 in mmo version .... it is more !!! This game will brake all the standards in game industry and i am very happy that i trusted you and i choosed to buy the Collectors Edition and after two weekends i can say ... only these two weekend worth the 150 euros that i spend to buy it.
[ Swtor Gameplay ] There is nothing more annoying for a veteran or a skillful role-playing gamer from the players that have to cooperate and they have not understood the precise role of their played character.As a Person and after 35 years of playing video games and 10 years for MMoRPG i demand from my teammates to know well their role in the game and not diverge too much. This is the reason that I reposted and sticky this article [Tank Guide] from official swtor community forum.
In [Swtor Official Advanced Class url] there is a very nice application that full explains classes and advanced classes of each character. The problem is that the advanced class differentiates very much the gameplay to be followed by each player when he picks one of them.
After a certain level , each player will have to choose an advanced class for his class and I'm sure if he has not thought about this until that moment,where he may experience a disappointment when he realized that the role of the character does not match his playing style.
He will experience problems in team play( raids and inside his guild ) and may have to launch New Characters to meet his real needs of gameplay or even quit the game , since of course he has created a bad impression until that time to his teammates. To start from scratch with hook head is not the best thing for a player for his ingame rumor.

Today i recieved a newsletter from Funcom that informs me that they decided Age of Conan will be become a free to play mmo game.This mmo game was a great project but they released it too early before 64 bit of windows be more popular and with many technical problems . It is a very good mmo with excellent graphics for mmo game and it is worthy a second change or just to try it .
We recently announced the exciting news that Age of Conan will be introducing a hybrid business model that will allow players to either play for free, or become Premium subscribers with access to more content and more features. The new hybrid business model is coming this summer, so be sure to check out the community site regularly.
Answers to general questions about free-to-play
When will the hybrid model be launched?
The current plan is to switch to this new model during summer 2011.
What does it mean that you are now introducing a hybrid business model?
In the simplest terms, anyone can play ‘Age of Conan: Unrated’ at no cost. No subscription is required. You can download and play for free.
‘Age of Conan: Unrated’ offers player the option of playing the game for free, without obligation. The business model is a hybrid of the 'store only' free-to-play model and the tiered offering that includes a Premium subscription option. This allows us to let players experience everything Hyboria has to offer, while still offering great added value to Premium subscribers.
Apparently EA is starting to recruit for another MMO it wants in the works. Although, it is important to keep in mind that the production time needed would most likely be several years and it wouldn't create an immediate impact on TOR, but it may in the long run if the game's really being designed to keep a long term player base.

I'm from Turkey and i want to emphasize - about how marketing is important and how Blizzard doing it well. (And sorry for bad English.)
Everyone talking about Wow is very good game in this site. And how can you beat it, what Bioware must do, not do etc. But most of these people are from USA, England, Germany, France, Canada etc. In these countries you can easily reach games, Pre-Paid Game Cards etc.
I tell you how well Blizzard marketing Wow in Turkey. And therefore i want to emphasize Wow's success not only being good game, but Blizzard's policy to reach every possible countries with best marketing possible.
In Turkey when you go to a big shopping mall and visit computer shops, you can find Wow original game, Burning Crusade and Wotlk easily. All of these shops have Wow and it's expansions.
But you can't find other MMORPG's so easily in Turkey. For example you can find Guild Wars if you are lucky but you can't find 2 other expansions so easily. I saw Champions Online only in 1 shop so far. And only Pre-Paid Game Card i saw in these shops so far is Wow's Pre-Paid Game Cards, its impossible to find any other Pre-Paid Game Card.
The End All Be All of WoW Clone Threads! - TL;DR// Plain and simple: This game will succeed solely on its IP if it meets all the requirements of being called an MMORPG.
If it is a WoW clone and it uses Star Wars IP instead of Warcraft III IP it will succeed.
If it is not a WoW clone and it uses Star Wars IP it will succeed.
Maybe you agree?
I have been thinking about this WoW clone business since I started watching these boards. It just bothers me that people can say this game will fail if it is a WoW clone. I mean, honestly, when it comes down to it WoW has done something right (I'm not saying that the game is definitively good) in terms of MMO development. The idea that this game--letter for letter--could be copied over from WoW itself and slapped with Star Wars content over it would be just fine.
We are trying to get our hands on an MMO here guys, not the lost Ark...
Hypothetical The mmorpg to end all mmorpg´s - What would it look like .
themepark or Sandbox Or mix of the two
Fanatsy or SciFi ?
My vision of a MMORPG to end all others would be a Science-Fantasy MMORPG with magic and science fiction, with open space and big planets to explore. With dev made factions to align with but also the option to stand alone. Ofc there will be guilds and these guilds will be able to war eachother or form alliances, they kan take sides with the dev governed story, and the devs will allow the player guilds and standalone players to influence the path of the main story, so that the game feels like an alive and dynamic World.
The Game world would expand as the player bace expands so like Eve there will be only one "server" spread out over many physical servers.
expansions and uptades would be added to the server seamlessly so that when a New solar system is added no one is told . thus giving a place for space explorers
as to the skills VS Levels discussion i feel like leaving that issue to ppl with more experience .
