The pvp is not bog standard.

While its not as good as classics like daoc & planetside. The only current big game with better pvp is eve.

Tsw pvp is infinitely better than wow / rift / swtor style shite.

I hear this a lot, but what's stopping you from grouping to do the content?

Probably all the other players that simply *won't* because coordinating will just slow them down.

Fact of the matter is (when it comes to grouping), people will only do it when the content is something they can't handle alone - or - the speed of progression is somehow faster if they do. Look at FFXI's lack of grouping now that there are easier/faster ways of leveling than hunting mobs way higher in level than you whie grouped.


~I have personal friends I game with, and if the content is soloable, then that's how we end up doing it.

I don't believe this line of thinking is as true as you make it seem, seriously ask yourself how often you see people in any game truly advertising that they are looking for a questing partner simply for standard quests?  For me the answer would be rarely if ever now I could go with that line of reasoning if the complaining subsect would be active vocal communitiy members who actively recruited for standard questing but again it's just not something I see in any game they simply do the same thing as everyone else (solo all solo content) then come onto the forums to complain that no one groups.

What the earlier poster can boil it down to is again the difference between forced grouping or not because if people aren't speaking up and acctiviely seeking people to group with I don't see how they expect anything else.

For the record after switching servers in TOR I have found myself often seeking and finding people willing to group for normal content.

Does it have some flaws? Sure it does, the CC leaves a bit to be desired however the fact you have thousands of clothing articles to wear teands to make up for this, no longer wll you have everyone running around looking the same. Besides Funcom have committed to revamping the CC and allowing character created to obtain what you might call plastic surgery.

The PvP in the game is top notch, enough said.

Ability wheel is full of depth and will keep you thinking for a long time to come.

The missions are full of interest and difficulty. No more face rolling!

Combat and animations while still needing a bit of work (something Funcom has also commited to) are imersive and often times reflect the power of your combat.

Overall a solid 9 out of 10. 

Be careful, people here hate when anyone is positive about anything.

Overly positive is bad.

1.Character creator sucks...but will be some point?

2. PvP...suppose that's personal opinion, nothing new here.

3. Missions are indeed pretty darn good.

4. Combat and animations need work.


Note:OP said those things, yet gave it 9/10.


Yeah, that's my issue with opinion's like this, 9/10 is damn near perfect, with almost no need to change/improve on anything. 

People just grade too easily in my opinion, there isn't a 9/10 on the market today (though some are close) regardless how long its been out, much less at launch.


In my day MMORPG's were so hard we fought our way through dungeons in the snow, uphill both ways.
