I have been playing this for about two weeks now on the Prophecy of the Five server and I am really enjoying it.  The game does start of a little slow on the first two planets but after that it really opens up.  If anyone is on that server let me know.  So far I haven't had any issues getting credits and so far I have been able to buy decent upgrades for my companion and me from the GTN for less then 1000 credits per item.

I kinda stopped playing due to the fact I wasn't sure how much time I wanted to dedicate to this game. But I'm going to play again since they have double XP weekends coming up and will probably due a 60 day subscription and give it one last horrah. I'm hoping this will get me hooked and able to level quickly to 55.  

 

Its nice to see other CAGs playing, but unfortunately I'm on the Bastion server.

I've never really got into any MMO games. I used to play D2 like a mutha but am looking to get into some sort of MMORPG or action rpg with some friends that's free. I've been looking at this, Path of Exile, and maybe WoW (I know you can only play to lvl 20). How is this game if you play for free? Is it worth all the time?

It will take a great deal of time to level (launch status slow), but with you play with friends, it can be some of best fun you can have without paying a single penny for the game.  The restrictions for F2P really hold you back from being able to make an epic endgame character, but if that is not the goal, then you'll be just fine without subbing.

If you want a WoW like fantasy game, try out Rift.

I am going to get this when my new laptop arrives later this week, any tips for new comers?

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

The game will be overwhelming at first, just take your time in understanding the game.  That means read the tutorial :D

 

Be friendly and don't beg for help, but do ask.

If you've ever played an MMO, it's not overwhelming in the least.  It's extremely straightforward.

I'm currently lvl 43, my name is Flexodius and I'm on the PVP guild. Not sure what toon name is?  Assuming my character or guild though.

Took me 1.5 years (well, 7 days and 14 hours of play time), but I finally hit level 50. Five more to go.

Keep going, PvP is a different game @ 55.

Figured I'd post in here since I've been away from CAG a while.

I'm on the Jedi Covenant server (PvE) in a Republic guild that does operations 4 times a week.  Been playing since Beta and still having a blast.

Got to 55 the other week, then did all the stuff on Makeb. Now, just trying to upgrade my armor from 162 to 168, but getting ultimate commendations is quite a chore. For that matter, so is finding an EC HM group that doesn't die (it's the only one I need for the Aratech Nightscythe).

Thinking about getting into this game... is it worth it with the expansion coming? I did play the trial which was ok but felt the tutorial planet was a choir.

New expansion?  I know the Rise of the Hutt is out for free to subscribers, but it's been out since April or May of last year.  Galactic starfighter is fun but I don't play it that often and only available to subscribers right now, F2P in Feb., Preffered, should get it soon. My first character took me a while to get to 55 and now I'm really enjoying the game, the second character I'm leveling is going much smoother then the first.  I really enjoy the game and the star wars universe, I would give it another shot.  I'm currently on the Bastion.

Get FFXIV instead.  SWTOR is crap.

Just started playing again with the Shadow of Raven coming out in December. They currently have a pre-order + subscriber bonus of 12x XP for class missions.  Starting a few new toons to try to level to 55 before the bonus ends.

I wish they did the 12x XP thing back when I actually had time to play. :'(

Does this game make you buy the game after a certain amount of levels or is it actually free 2 play?

For anyone interested in free 7 days, or other things? Should take the referral link. Y'can do it as a subscriber or a Preferred player, look at my signature.


For a SWTOR referral link which, (if you're subscribed) gives you free 7 days, server-transfer, Preferred bundle; or other items. If you're not subscribed, it's worth taking it if you're interested in the game. (http://www.swtor.com/r/TGHjjV)
