I've been beta testing SWTOR for 2 months and now, with the NDA lifted, I can say what I want about it although I'm sure that anyone here who is really interested in it has already read and watched the reviews and walk-throughs. I will say this; I love this blasted game! If you liked WoW, Mass Effect, or Knights of the Old Republic you're going to love this.
After 7 years and 3 guilds I'm convinced that having an openly atheistic/freethinkers guild is the way to go. I've been searching for the right guild but, well, we all know how easy it is to herd cats right? There was a bit of interest on the SWTOR forums but I haven't found any guilds ready for deployment. For a guild to be deployed upon release it needs to have 4 members that have pre-ordered although it's not a requirement. All it takes is 4 people at any time to group up and start a guild after release. Is anyone here interested? Anyone going to order or pre-ordered already?
Please feel free to fire any questions at me!
Boska is dead, not unlike most of TOR. The game really suffered, losing about 300-400k subscriptions per quarter. Most days it was difficult to even find enough people to do anything, and our raiding group recently disbanded because about 70% of our group moved on to Guild Wars 2. I don't even log in to TOR anymore. I wish you luck though :)
Blasted I am really bummed to hear that. My name is Archangelo if anyone ever wants to do group stuff.
Been playing for almost a month now, very impressive game! Just hit level 20 as a sith sorcerer. So far I feel like there are just the right amount of solo instanced quests balanced with a handful of 2-4 man group quests in each area. Still not in a guild, on the Ajunta Pall (RP-PVP) server, mostly playing with a real life buddy.
The play style is so much fun, makes me feel nostalgic, was a huge star wars trilogy fan growing up and those lightsaber sounds flick all the right switches in my brain!
I finally got a hold of TOR today so if anyone can recommend a server and guild I would love to join you!
There's plenty of action on "The Harbinger" server, if RP isn't your thing, and Gunbad is a very chill guild there. I will be joining them today or tomorrow. My dreams of a guild like "Alderaan Atheists" never came to fruition :(
In game name is "Strangel" so friend me if ya pop in there!
My S.O. plays SWTOR and is in an atheist guild made up of friends from a Skeptic site forum. I'll check to see if they're "recruiting".
Also, if anybody knows a Mac user who wants to play SWTOR on a Mac, drop me a line here if you/they need help getting started. I know some good tweaks for running it smoothly in Bootcamp; on borderline spec machines.
(disclaimer: I don't play SWTOR, I just do the geek/hacking stuff)
Do realize that playing times are probably going to be all over the place with this guild as they're an international bunch, so their may be many different times one can put together a 4 character team. I brought it up with her this morning, she's going to ask the group (S.O. is a big fan of group consensus/dynamics), if they want some atheist recruits. I'm thinking yes. When she let's me know, I'll post the guild info here.
Bryan did you ever find and atheist guild? I am looking for the same thing, I'm willing to start a new one.
