And so it begins. We have been imported in the game on Dreshdae Cantina http://www.swtor.com/guilds/95247/adult-gaming-enthusiasts . For those interested in SW lore http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/The_Drunk_Side .

Hoping to get early access invite for December 13 so I can make sure I get in the game to get the Guild off to a good/early start (will have to sneak out of work early).

Wondering if I should ask the powers that be on AGE for a sub forum under Computer gaming for the SWTOR Guild so that we can keep things organized?

Sounds good to me! Ive been waiting and havnt heard boo from SWTOR yet myself. But I like a server that refers to us as 'the drunk side' anytime!

I shall be starting my Counselor of course, and having fun as soon as possible. I heard though that early access started the 15 for pre-orders? Not sure/

Early access starts as early as the 15th, but what date you actually get access on depends on when you redeemed your preorder code.

My early access starts tomorrow at 7am. I preordered I think one of the first days it was available to be preordered and registered my code that day.

Got in briefly enough before I had to leave for work and created first character named Doc who is a smuggler. Guild now up and running on the Dreshdae Cantina. For those who were on guild roster prior to Bioware locking the forums, you should be able to easily import your first character in the guild by just clicking yes at prompt. For those not in guild yet, please send me an invite request. Sorry for multiple threads but started this new one so folks would not have to read through pages to find info.

Great glad it worked for you. I am unable to get in. It say I have no active subscription on this account. I got an email that said I had access on the 13th at 7am EST. Not sure what's going on, if they are rolling it out slowly or what.

I get the "no active subscription" message too. I think when you enter the official game code after opening day, that will go away. The thing is, I don't know where I get the official game code from. I ordered the collector's edition through Walmart. I assume the game code will come with that but it hasn't shipped yet.

The official game code is a different code. It's to be entered when you set up your subscription sometime on or after opening day. At least that is what I read on the SWTOR website.

http://www.swtor.com/preorder/faq#q209657

Will I need a different code when the Game officially launches or is the Pre-Order Code all I will need to play once the Game goes live?
Yes, once the Game officially launches you will need to redeem a Game Code, which is supplied with your copy of Star Wars: The Old Republic.

The email worded it so that since we don't have an actual CD key from the retail package we'd be sent a temporary CD key style code for the early access period. (as a way to control player influx) However I just logged in and started playing so they changed their plan or realized how easy it is to simply "turn your account on" and turn it off again @ midnight 12/20.

I'm amazed at how confusing they've made all of this. It just seems overly complex for just playing a game.

Laronvas
12-13-2011, 07:46 AM
Update: I did actually receive an email over night that was a sort of "Welcome to Early" access email but it was very generic and had instructions on entering my early access key (which I did months ago), downloading the client, creating any account, etc.

That email even though it's completely generic might be what actually acts as your notice of subscription activation. Aychtuo or someone else would have to confirm if they have yet to receive that email to verify that's the official "go play!" notice.

Ok I guess all I got was the preload and be ready email. Subject line "Pre-load the game now", so maybe I'm not in the first wave. I may have waited a day or two after preordering I guess. Wish there was a way I could check the date I entered my preorder code.

You can. Log onto your account on the SWTOR website and go to the code redemption link from your account page.

The moment we've all been waiting for is finally here. Early Game Access* has started, and you can now begin your adventure. To start playing, click on the button below and follow the steps outlined on the page. Welcome to your Star Wars™ saga.


This is the body of email that will signal your able to log in. The title will be "Your Saga Begins"

Apparently they're only sending out 5 waves of access invites per day with promise EVERYONE will get atleast 1 day of early access. Sounds like crap to only allow some people 1 day access but then again they never promised a certain # of days.

He may have to be onlIne for it to actually work. Games get more advanced /friend gets more archaic

Side note: I was on heavy yesterday to get people invited but will be at work for the next 48hrs followed by 6-12 hrs of new computer building (for SWTOR) and some school paperwork.

I'll try to be on Friday night heavy even as an invite bot for people if needing invites for everyones ALT's or none pre-register new comers.

I screwed up yesterday. I created my consular, logged into the game, accepted the automatic guild invite and then realized I forgot to change something during character creation, so I logged out and deleted the character to fix it and along with it deleted my guild access. :(

Can I get a new invite from somebody please?

This evening I'll either be playing a Consular (Windra) or a trooper (Azgrim).

There doesn't appear to be any request system since the game launched. The original pre-register had a nice system but that is closed. They are furthering guild system tools in some upcoming patches so hopefully the game will have application process in-game or web based eventually.

I will be on some today but I will be tearing down computer soon for a new build so may be offline awhile. If you have a character right now to get in guild PM me ASAP and I'll hop on before I tear apart computer.

I think you'll get use to it. You use the right mouse button to turn your characer and the left mouse button to rotate your camera, which is good for looking around you while you're fighting.

Your probably right. I am excited to get some more of this game in. I did some of the Coruscant missions but I need to research how to get some better armor/shields. I just seem to be loosing health too quickly when I am in a fight with a Boss and the cool downs on teh med packs don't make sense to me. Could be that i am just use to pounding potions in skyrim to get my health up. Am I just not employing the correct strategy?

Aychtuo
12-20-2011, 06:51 AM
You should have some defensive abilities, I have a couple and I am a dps class. I save them for elites and such. On top of that, you'll get armor through quests, you can also spend your commendations at the specialty goods vendor for armor and weapons and mods.

Argggg, so I finally flushed enough people out of airlocks, and let a few people die in a gas explosion so that I have made it to Dark Level 1 with my jedi. The downside is I apparently had a double bladed light saber equipped that I can no longer use because I'm dark side. The only place I can find to buy a light saber that allows dark side to use it is on Coruscant with 14 commendations from the vendor. Has to be the dark euridite double bladed saber usable by Dark I and above.

So anyone know of anywhere else to get a dark side light saber? Or anyone willing to buy the one on Coruscant and send it to me? I have 10 commendations and could buy you something in return. It was really annoying in that I can't do any damage with lightsaber skills and I searched the fleet and Taris last night for a light saber to buy but there wasn't anything available.

CptDomano
12-20-2011, 08:46 AM
How many commendations is it? 14? I'll check and see how many my trooper has when I log in (get through the queue...I'm 111th right now) and if I have some I'll toss 'em your way.

Well, check that...Apparently you can't send commendations to friends :( I have one floating one that is sitting in my regular inventory and not my "currency", so I'll send that to you.

I think I might have found a way. Aych can make red crystal which should hopefully turn my lightsaber dark. If not I have 10 commendations and I'll just run a couple dailies to get the rest I need. I don't think you can send commendations to another player.

It's kind of funny cause usually when I'm in a group they are rooting for me to win the roll so that the dark option happens. Everyone in the group gets light or dark depending on what they chose individually, but the decision on what happens in the quest goes to the winner of the roll :)

Last night was 100% flawless. I could not tell it was official launch at all. Just a great 6 hour session with no problems or lag that I could see. /clap @ bioware.

I was expecting to see a FLOOD of people. But cora and even the essles area only had 130 and 70 at most times. I was expecting to see a 500 ish on cora at least. I dont think there phasing the game area as I ran into definity while running around. Also ran into capt the other day to.

Make sure you turn off "Shadows" in the graphics settings. It'll make a big difference.

Good call on turning off shadows Taz, i stumbled on that last night. Anyone else having vertical sync issues? Full screen (windowed) seems to help, but locks out the gamma correction in settings. Still an hour to kill before the servers are up, guess i could spend that time kicking myself for not checking to see if there was going to be an Age guild and server to start on.. totally worth starting over for tho! Potential problem though, is vent required? I'm not mic'd on my comp yet.

Well, in their defense, they did have a big announcement on the launcher saying to set up your subscription yesterday.

However, I don't think you go through EA.com to set up the subscription. You do all your account stuff through SWTOR.com. Have you tried that?

Flare Gun - almost pointless, it just mimics the cinematic from Alderaan when trooper shots flare to signal the beat the sith (maybe useful if your standing somewhere and need group to find you??)

Training Droid - not sure sounds unique to digital deluxe (CE gets vanity pet mouse droid)

HoloDancer - REALLY pointless. Looks just like all the blue holo dancers in cantinas. Maybe if you're a creepy perv type it's a must have lol

HoloCam - KInd of cool, takes screenshots in first person mode (not sure if that's possible normally)

STAP In-Game Vehicle - Unique looking level 25 require mount. Training is the main expense though so not a SUPER savings but every bit counts.

Vampyre
01-06-2012, 07:01 AM
So my interest is waning. I think its the environments or something or maybe a lack of connection between areas. Corrusant is a major fail IMOP. 1 main hub and 3 or 4 platforms with different mobs and long hallways. One thing that put me off was I had to return to Corusant to talk to a chick in her apartment. Well to get there I had to walk through the same gang members fighting talk to her then walk back through all of that. It felt out of place. The areas do not seem well laid out or something. Just doesn't feel like a town or major city. This is kind of hard to explain. But the map layouts and lack of connection or something is really off putting.

The thing that is awesome is the flashpoints. I would rather run them with people over and over then quest for hours on end. But over the last week there has been less and less people shouting for them and making a party is also taking forever. Seems like people have moved on in level or just dont run them anymore.

Loving the combat and tanking on trooper.

CptDomano
01-06-2012, 07:08 AM
I can agree with you on a few of those points, Vamp. Since I've ran through Coruscant with all my alts now I really just find a way to avoid most of the fighting unless it's part of a bonus objectives. And I can tell you the feeling of lack of connection gets even worse when you move on to Taris or Nar Shaddaa--the maps get bigger and you're spending even longer running from spot to spot taking on/avoiding mobs.

I'm still enjoying the game though and actually welcome the fact that work has cut into my SWTOR time, as I can take the game in little chunks now and not get burned out from a marathon session. I think there's still enough extra stuff (flashpoints, space combat, playing as a Sith) going on that will keep me interested for awhile.

Plus the difference in classes really does change the way I play the game. My Jedi Guardian, Commando, and Gunslinger all have different approaches to mobs so at least it gives me a little change when I'm doing "Enemies of the Republic" one more time ;)

I've been insanely busy over the last few weeks with the holidays, family / friends being home, and well ontop of that? I'm selling my house and going through the process of settling things with the prospective buyers... it's quite a task. Also, Thursdays are GoW3 League, so those nights I'm tied up.

However? Look for me to be online more now that things are settling down from the holidays, and my deal for my house is a bit more settled. But, if we're interested in running FPs? and more over, Operations at max lvl? I'll certainly be in for those when the time arrives. Also, I will be spec'ing my Sage as a more 'pure' healer once I hit max level. For now... I just thought it would be too difficult to level up with out the punch. Jedi Sage's Telekenetic abilities are quite amazing, they can dish out a lot of dmg, and because of their healing... they have the ability to stick around in a fight a lot longer, and also spot heal in grps when the MH gets in trouble.

Ok so tonight.... Ran story quest on taris or w/e its called and WAS BORED TO HELL. The story part was good but running all over the place and running into no one and just mindless running almost did me in.... Got on vent and was able to chit chat for a bit with agers! That alone saved my sanity. Got the stroy stuff done but only got maybe about 20% of a level. It dinged me a SLIVER into 22. So i went back to the fleet and camped out in front of the flashpoints. I shouted for close to an hour and got a party together while i was duel boxing EQ2 :-p Got that part into athiss and BAM in 56 minutes I had 97% of lvl 22 done. Had a blast, got some gear and I was able to take and teach 2 new peeps this run through with only 1 death and it went off like clock work. THAT is what I love about mmo's This could of went either way. 1 a complete failure after the 1st boss or a complete success with a shit ton of XP and gear. Its the human factor that makes these games worth it. It might not be the fastest way to level but its the way I like to lvl.

Just got a invite to hammer run. :-) bbl no time to edit or spell check or re read.

I learned that unless the place your in says [1] then its not instanced out. I noticed this last night when looking at the guild menu. 3 people where on alderan and 2 where in alderan [1] and the other was just in alderan.

This game is REALLY prime time focus if you want to get any grouping done quick. from 5 to about 1 there will be around 100 people in fleet. After that it drops off as it gets later and later.

I was joking. :) There's really not much of a pulling strategy in this game. Groups are tied to each other, the only thing you really have to do is watch out for roamers. Also, if you're fighting say...4 mobs and you down 3 of them but you know you can't get the 4th, you can run away and after he resets he's alone. It doesn't respawn the other 3 guys when you do that.

You went Vanguard so you'll be running into the same problem I did on my Jedi Sentinal. No healing. So right now you have to try to burn down the bad guys before you run out of health. Try to use stims and med pacs when you can. It will get easier for you once you get your healing companion, a lot easier. I think she comes at the end of your class quest on Tanaris.. So once you get there if you focus on your class quests you'll get her and then can use her for the side quests on that planet.
