Wow they discribed every MMO out there. Tapping buttons, holding them down! Holy cow! Roots, Stuns, holds, break frees, I've never seen those before! /facepalm I just lost all interest.

They never said they wanted to revolutionize combat mechanics, they also did not say they were the first to do these things.

They just expressed they were aware of these things, and you'd be surprised how many mmo's actually totally screw up in making roots / stuns / escape abilities that actually do the job.

KK, combat is good.  Combat is great.  What else does this game have to offer?  Story!  KK, every class has its own epic story to unfold.  Cool.  So what do I do when that journey is over?  What makes me want to make a stake in this MMO world?  What is the plan for space?  This is a STAR Wars game after all.

gordunk writes: took the standard MMO template and overlayed Star Wars on top of it...congratulations.

I shouldn't be surprised from a company that clones its own games over and over again to make money.  This game is looking less and less interesting.  Not only that, but I'm seriously disappointed with the graphical quality.  In today's industry it's becoming increasingly hard to justify lower-quality graphics, especially if your game doesn't innovate in any way.

I see this game doing no better than the last P2P games that have come out(WAR, AoC, DF, Champions, Alganon, STO, Aion), and they have certainly made me look more forward towards FFXIV and TERA.

Thats a very nice sales pitch.But sadly its just a better coveyed pitch about the same old stuff.Its the pitch thats impressive,not whats being pitched.

And to hear them promise "class balance".......and taking combat to a "new level".....

People with any real time spent watching the MMO industry should be easily able to sense the 71 pinto with the bald tires lurking behind the screen of words.

The game it's not even out and it look like crap. I see nothing in there that make me say wow. More like euh... I already did that in the fisrt MMO I played and that was UO when it came out... Ok you could not fly but you when you where in combat you had to think because player who did not do it became ghost very quickly... Even faster if you did pvp.

You guys got to be kidden around saying the bs you all saying about this BioWare MMORPG. The problem is you guys aspect to much in an MMORPG now days, what the hell do you guys want? this has story, great combat, beautiful graphics, and great classes. I will be enjoying this MMO 100%.

Looks like the epic Jedi classes will have some major problems running up on the troopers lol. I was going to play a Jedi but I find the Bounty Hunter or Troopers more legendary!.

The fact remains that every mmo from here until many many years from now will stand on the shoulders of the mmo's before keep saying how they are clones etc etc...well why in the world would you need to "re-invent" parts of the game that are more than adequate?  Why spend man hours that could be spent making the combat smoother or something like that rather than creating an auction house from scratch when something similar to WoW's auction house or something already exists and serves it's purpose?  You people that complain about clones need to stop and realize what actually goes into making an MMO and be intelligent for once.

this video was a bore they kept spouting doing things new, but I did not see one thing new that hasn't been done in the MMO industry. They just literally copied and paste a standard MMO combat system. They are really going to have to try harder if they want to get people to play this game on more than just having the name Star Wars in it. There was no hard information in the video either just a bunch of hype, and it was bad hype.

you cant update combat , unless humans have lazer eyes and so on , combat will always stay the same in anygame. so starwars has to stay true to its nature.

I can't believe people are using words like "epic" and "fantastic".  Are they watching the same video I'm watching?


The graphics are subpar.  The entire time the team is pitching how innovative and new and how different and envelope pushing their system and game is.  But, as others have pointed out, it is not.  It brings absolutely nothing new to the table.  And, the graphics are sub-par. 


I hate to tell you guys this, but there are games in development now that are in FULL HD.  You'll probably need a new computer, but heck, you needed a new one anyway.  You need to move forward in game development, not backwards.


I've seen better animation in those stick figure kung fu fights.  Everything about it is klunky and already done.  And, the fanboys keep hollering "epic".  When sales slack in the first month, they're going to have a shocked look on their face like "what went wrong."  There are fare more people complaining, than there are fanboyism going on.
