Anyone get their early access code?
I haven't been let in yet. I didn't pre-order (and enter my code) until Oct 2nd so I probably won't get in until tomorrow or Thursday I'm guessing.
I think I'm going to get in tomorrow, I'm Nov 2, not Oct.
Got in first wave today.
Apparently pretty much everyone's security question is not working and no one can login at the moment. I was on hold for an hour with customer service, nothing... I never got through. I tried calling again and it said we are overloaded goodbye. Good grief.
BTW I had the phone on speaker while watching a movie, lol.
I've had zero issues with the game. No login, account or client issues.
It's been a perfect launch for me so far. Queues are long but that expected for the first month or two with any launch mmo, especially one that is this popular.
My BH main is 19 and I have an 11 Marauder.
I picked up a copy this weekend and the only bad thing I can say about it so far is I like playing all of the classes and haven't gotten one passed level 10 yet. My inquisitor is closest. Oh, and I'm not a huge fan of the human models (mine all end up looking the same...), but it just gives me a reason to play alien races and cyborgs.
Currently trying out the two east coast RP-PvP servers. Anyone on any of the normal PvP servers?
My guild started on Anchorhead (where BioWare put us) but after a few days of crappy queues we re-rolled on Gardens of Talla, a brand new server.
On Anchorhead I had gotten my BH Merc up to 27 we before re-rolled.
On GoT my BH is up to 26 (went PowerTech) and also have an 11 Agent (Operative) and 11 Inquisitor (Assassin). My Warrior is only up to 9, I'll probably go Marauder with him.
We were resistant to re-roll but when Stephen Reid said that the queues would remain for the time being we figured we mine as well just change servers while we were all still relatively low. A week later BW announced that they were going to aggressively work on the queues and, as far as I've seen, our old server doesn't have a queue anymore...

My brother and I created a BH duo last night with the intent on going tank / healer. I really really like their storyline and gameplay. I also really enjoyed the social points aspect and having to roll for dialog responses. It was fun to watch the two different BH perspectives come through as we played. Like when I wanted to purify the waters and carry out my contract, and he fell for the big monsters eating people thing and won the roll. The lasting impact was fun to be a part of as well as share with someone.
LOL yea. I'm playing my BH light side and all my buddies are playing dark so I totally f with them in the dialog by picking the light side options- we were running Black talon and I kept winning the roll to not kill the ship captain. Finally they won, and it was cool because we ended up doing a completely different fight. That was pretty awesome.
There are folks having problems with bugged quest, FPS issues and the customer support has left a lot to be desired thus far. But they're all just growing pains. Everyone who I know personally hasn't had the "catastrophic" problems that you find all over the official forums and the internet- they are nowhere near as prevalent as the haters would have you believe.
I'm thoroughly enjoying the hell out of it.
I had a quest today on my Sith Warrior, it was to go kill the son of a rival Sith Lord.
Instead, I killed the Sith Lord, installed his son as his replacement and banged out the kid's mom while I made my companion watch.
I lost 30 affection points with my companion, Vette, but the dialog made it so worth it.
There's so many things that aren't game breakers that take away from the overall experience and when you're expecting an MMO to be the next be thing ends up being the same old thing, it leaves a sour taste in your mouth.
I'm sure SWTOR will do well and make lots of money, but ask yourself this: If it didn't have Star Wars on it, how well do you think it would do? What if it some new IP with no big name draw?
While we are still waiting for BioWare to fix the texture bug the environment scenery is some of the best looking of any MMO that I've ever played.
The character art looks nothing like The Clone Wars...
I personally like the character design, it's a nice blend of stylistic realism. If the art style resembles anything it's the older KOTOR games which, last time I checked, are a bit older than the Clone Wars.
Healing at lower levels- who even needs it? You can run most flashpoints (up to at least Cademimu) with out any specific roles if you are playing with competent people. Considering that there is no dual-spec in the game there is no need to constantly switch in and out of healing or tank specs. Hell, I've been tank specced with my Powertech since I hit level 10 and have no problems with any of my solo questing.

It's OK. I'd compare it with pretty much every moderm MMO out there, meaning that's it's pretty bland.
You posted faces; what about full body shots of the toons that look like cartoons? They could have done some amazing character models, but everything looks so cartoony to me.
