Invite? Isn't this opened to the general public? And how do I get an invite if it's not?

Well they are opening it up to everyone that signed up as a beta tester through TheOldrebulic.com. I'm sure you can still sign up but theres just a few weeks left before the December 20th release date.

Are games like this usually that big or is this the rare exception because of all the stuff that is coming with it?

Beats me. I played WoW for about an hour but didn't really take not of the install size. Whatever the size was it definitely wasn't worth the disk space or time it took to install.

Ok after a few days of playing the full version (yes I bought it) I have to honestly say.... I'm hooked! I think MMORPGs have this certain stigma that is undoubtably due to WoW and its borderline psychotic community. It seems alot of people forget these kinds of games are RPGs its just that theres alot of other live people running around there in the same game as you.

Ok I could try and write a review or describe my game play experiences and there's a 100% chance that it will be different than everyone elses. Where as with a regular RPG say like Kotor or Mass Effect the story line is 95% the same to everyone. With this you have the 2 factions, The Republic and the Sith Empire, withing those 2 you have a few choices to make as far as character types and they each have there own distinctive story lines.  A total of 8 distinctive story lines that are fully fleshed out and full voiced. You want to ask WHY it took so long? Thats why. To say that TOR is a huge game would be an insult. This is a huge, gigantic game, you'll always have something to do and somewhere to go.

Just a small thing about my experiences and what I was expecting. I hear horo stories about the WoW community and the general chat that goes on. Chat is something that is always going on with the people that are in the same area you are in. Say your on server 1138 and 65 people are on Tatooine, those are the people you can chat with. Chat is very usefull where people can ask questions offer help, ask for help or just shoot the sh1t. I heard WoWs general chat was about equal to being a jew in nazi germany. So I was a bit scared as to TOR. I couldn't have been happier with the community or at least the people who are on the server that I've been playing on. Lots of helpfull respectfull people who offer help and like to have fun. There are some instances that are called "Heroic" and those absolutely cannot be done solo. But since the the stories and worlds are structured brilliantly there are alot of people with the same Hero instances you will have. So just asking if anyone want to help with a certain quest is just a matter of asking and you'll get someone.

One of the funniest things I've seen in a game ever happened to me just the other night. On Coroscant there is a HUGE battle droid of sorts and is labeled a "World Boss" its level is 18 and people are OBSESSED with wanting to kill it. Last night someone asked if someone wanted to help them kill it. I had been foolish enough to go up against and lasted about 2 seconds, litterally ..... dead. I convinced the guy to start recruiting at least 20 people even after my warnings. He started recruiting people and by the time I got there there was 20 or so players gathered to take this thing on. People where PUMPED there where even people just coming over to watch. There where some participants who really thought we where going to take this thing out. So we went in...... and died .... everyone of us. I lasted longer this time but it was just hilarious seeing all those lightsabers and rockets and laser blasts converging on this monsterous droid. We didn't even make a dent which made it all the more hilarious.

All in all I'm really enjoying it while learning how the whole leveling and skills work. Theres alot there and alot to take in but its alot of fun.

I'm still very much intrigued by this game. Thanks for the post. Dude, you say people were coming by to watch? Is it open to public to view people playing or do I need the game itself? At least video tape yourself getting slaughtered and then posting it up on YouTube for my demented pleasure of watching you die over and over on the same level.

Well when I say people where coming by to watch I mean they saw in general chat that people where going to gather and try and take that droid on. So instead of joining in an trying to help they just kind of stood back and watched up get out asses kicked. Much like a Mike Tyson vs..... anyone he fought thing in vegas. It must have been hilarious to see from a distance. This is a vid of a group of 28 people taking him on. It looks a little ridiculous and its absolutely a fight you DONT have to do but the feeling of bring that bastard down must be great.

Haha. That looked like one giant cluster phuck. Question, if at any time during that battle, if you die are you out for the remainder of the fight or do you re-spawn immediately?

Whenever you die you have an option to be revived by a medical droid and you have 8 seconds after the revive to get to a safe position OR you can immediately respawn at the nearest medical center. Now the medical droid has a cool down time so if you die and chose to be revived and then die again theres probably a minute or so wait. The medical center revive is always instant. Then there are healers that can revive but that also has a cool down period.
