“This is the way of our Order. An individual may die, but the Sith are eternal.”
I don't play Sith in the game, but I have always loved Sith Quotes. After playing a lot more of TOR, I have enjoyed it more and more. Developing my own character into what I want him to be, allowing this free format, to answer the questions for conversations, and quests. Allowing my character to be Romantic/Casual/Aggressive, etc etc. It's a lot of fun to see companion reactions, and everyone else reaction to what I make my character say. Extremely fun, and deep, and I really enjoy that about TOR, probably the best thing I like about the game. I log unto the game for multiple hours, I pulled a all nighter playing this game, and accomplished a lot, and found myself not getting bored, like I would usually get while playing a MMO. I'm very glad that this hasn't happened to TOR, even after such a marathon I pulled off. Usually, I would be burned out, but I finally stopped playing because I was about to fall asleep on my keyboard. I've done that before, it's very uncomfortable, take my word for it. Space missions which I thought I would not like, are actually really fun. The first time I did a space mission, I failed the first two tries, don't judge me. This makes me very eager for the next digital expansion that adds space PvP. Totally, excited for it.
Usually, I talk about Free to play, and all of that jazz, but I cannot give a strong opinion on the free to play aspect of the game, and the restrictions. I went straight to sub, because of how great of an impression the game put on me. My guild has a small amount of free to play accounts, or preferred status. They say the chart on the game, is kind of misleading, but true at the same time. Some of the limits truly suck, but you can do everything in the game. (Except for the digital expansion). I cannot give a fair opinion on this subject, but a lot of people don't have a lot of issues with it, at least in-game, on paper the restrictions look terrible. I've gotten mixed reactions from in-game, and out of game. I truly think the game is worth the sub, but I am also glad they made this game free to play. My server is very populated, and I have a great guild. Some of which are happy free to players. Once again, I have gotten mixed reactions though.
As far as my actual adventures, I am currently on the planet Alderaan. I can't wait to see how they designed it, because we only got a glimpse of it in Episode 3 of the movies. So I am really excited to play this planet. As I said before, this isn't a perfect game, it has it cons, and a few bugs I dislike, but I am sure they will patch them. Most of the game I am in love with. To be fair with it all, I will talk about what I dislike about the game, to give you all a little more insight.
I wish they would increase the rate of planet commendations that drop, and credit drops. Maybe, because I am still in mid-level planet, I haven't seen the later game drops, and I'm too greedy as well? Probably the biggest issue I have right now, is an extremely annoying bug that is happening to me, and a few other guildies. Proper items will not show up on the GTN (Auction House). I think they are aware of it though, and I hope they will fix it soon. Pretty much that is it for the dislikes (Right now). I will continue to play this game, probably for a long time! Like I said, the pros outweigh the cons by a large amount. I told you all this blog would be almost daily, I intend to try to honor that. I have been really busy lately, because of life situations, and I haven't been able to sit down and start typing without being interrupted and losing my train of thought.
I hope you all have enjoyed the read, and I post more adventures soon, hopefully tomorrow. This game is really great, and I am enjoying the people I am playing with. If you'd like to try out the game, and have some help, please ask me what my server is, and I will help you out as much as I can. I promise I won't bite! Anyways, till next time... May the force be with you... Always. Cheers!
