The game officially launches on December 20. For those who pre-ordered the game, we get to start playing on the 15th...
This last weekend was the final Beta, the 'server load' days. It actually handled the giant flux of people pretty well.
I was really torn on if I wanted to buy it or not... it's another money-sink like WoW, so... But so many of my friends are going to be playing it, and the beta made me really want to explore that world more. The game-play is similar to WoW (obviously), but different enough to be very much it's own game. And, it's Star Wars. That's just a win. LOL
I didn't buy Skyrim... I don't know that story-line and most of my friends are going directly from WoW to SWTOR (or doing both, like me). I don't have a lot of time for sitting at the computer, so throwing another game in my mix has to be carefully considered. LOL I didn't get Rift, either... (I think that's why I love doing betas, though... I get to try something out & then move on.)
