I have my pre-order in for this game. Just wondering if anyone on AVS was planning on picking it up. I'm also looking to either create a guild for AVS or join one. I would prefer to gravitate toward a PvE server but could be talked into a PvP, maybe. . .

A lot of MMO's have gotten to the point where it seems one can do decently well in-game and still have a life.. I may check this out when it is released. Would much rather see a shadowrun mmorpg released but at point i'll take what I can get since wow has raped the industry.

The only "MMO" I plan on playing is Guild Wars 2 (whenever it comes out). I don't like being billed per month, so this game is more my speed.

GW2 is a whole different entity and actually of all the MMO's is actually doing something different in the market. Dont think GW2 will be released until next year which is fine by me.

Im going to check SWTOR but its because Im a huge fanboy of star wars. I also don't have the time to invest in these types of games like I used to.If this ends up being another wow clone I wont bother and will wait for GW2. I think subs are going to be the thing of the past.If SWTOR & GW2 fail Im pretty much done with MMO's.

I'm in the process of checking out champions online since it's f2p.. Also trying lego universe.. I was having some serious issues with LU locking up but I was letting it do the stream as you play im hoping a full download will cure that.

Started playing champions online. Loved the character creator section. Didn't love the fact that I was forced to choose a pre made skill set. Using a 360 pad is ok but I still find myself using the mouse to sell stuff etc. Also I have an issue with my m11x r3 not allowing any aa enabled without other video options being totally disabled. Now if i use a tv as a monitor through hdmi I can enable aa with everything else maxed. Gonna try some older drivers.

SWTOR will be 1st MMO experience. I ended up joining an Imperial Guild at the invitation of a friend I play XBOX BC2/BF3 with.

Still too much unknown about SWTOR to know how important guilding will be. It may be possible to play with randoms when needed and run solo the rest of the time while leveling up.

The guild I joined is an active SWG guild, so there was/is a great deal of MMO experience that will carry over into SWTOR.

Guild alignment may not be really important until you get nearer the end of the game, so there will probably be plenty of time to start playing and figure out what to do. I will try to level up several classes to have options and I understand you will be able to run up to 8 classes if you wish.

Just out if curiosity. Is this game compatible with gamepads? I can't play mouse and keyboard

Love sports, movies, and games. Slowly some day I'll add a projector and screen. Until then, I'll build up my library.

Been playing it since the 15th. Got early pre-order access. So far so good. Long story, short, I hate MMO's but I am enjoying this one. Plays a little bit like KOTOR so if you liked that then you might like this.

I've been playing since the 15th as well. I'm not a big MMO guy either but the storyline for my BH and Consular has me hooked. If you are looking for a good group of people to play with, as I stated earlier, Ars has a number of guilds that you can join if you are a member of the community over there.

Also, to answer the previous posters question, you have to play with a kb mouse setup.

I'm loving the storyline. I think the game is great so far. Much better than WOW and DC Universe which barely held my attention.

Hello everyone. If you are looking for a guild or just starting out Nemesis is recruiting on the Sanctum of the Exalted server U.S. East Coast.

We are on the empire side and we are a causal group looking to do some raiding in the future and pvp, currently of course leveling up.

Check us out at www.nemesis-emp.enjin.com and send us a tell in game to Descedent(me), Sodono, or Mnemicis if interested!

Thanks!

Yes it is but YMMW depending on how accustomed you are to a controller and how good your memory is. I though I couldnt get used to a mouse/keyboard setup so during beta, i used xpadder to map the keyboard to my 360 controller. It was perfect. I only got to level 25 in beta.

I'm a 34 sentinel and using a controller would be a little difficult to play with all the time. I ended up buying a g13 keypad and i love it much more than using a controller. Its a nice hybrid of a controller/keyboard. I still use a controller, mostly just to solo when I want to give my wrist/hands a break. There are just so many skills available in higher levels to use a controller efficiently for anything other than soloing regular mobs. At my level, I will not fight any boss encounters with a controller.

Anyways, here is how I set it up.
Face buttons = 1-4
Dpad = 5-8
Left trigger + face buttons = 9 -12
Left trigger + Dpad = 13-16
Right trigger + face = 17-20
Right trigger + Dpad = 21-24
Select = next page UI commands
Start = Map
Left bumper = target nearest friendly
Right bumper = target nearest enemy
Push left stick down = left mouse click
Push right stick down = right mouse click
Right trigger + right stick = mouse move

I play on the Juyo server and my name is Jacen. hit me up if you want to play or have questions about using a controller

I had planned to to hook up a xbox controller for SWTOR, but there are just so many times you end up having to go back to the keyboard, the integration was awkward at best, so I have abandoned the idea.

I am part of the Corstar Guild on The Swiftsure server (PvP). I just hit level 41 and I am crafting biochem. The game has been great. I have not been playing BF2 since mid December, but that's mainly because I kinda lost interest with BF3 because of how poorly it supported teams. At this point, I don't have time to do both.

It's a shame our toons don't greater flexibility to move around servers so we could play with each other.

I am using the Naga mouse and Logitech G510 keyboard. It's been a great combination and I am still tweaking my key bindings and macros as my character evolves and new skills become available.

There is definitely a different approach to PVE/Class questing and surviving PvP. I'm sure I will tweak my setup more toward PvP once I reach 50.

I hope everyone is enjoying the game.

The nagga mmo mouse is really the way to roll with this game. This is 100% not a console experience in its current form.

I retract my previous statement about using a controller. I started getting pain in my fingers from playing to much, which was a concern when i was in beta, which is why i looked into using a controller in the first place.

Anyways, I pulled up the controller, adjusted my abilities, and took an hour or so of practicing. At level 39, I have 2 1/2 bars of abilities. I use the select button to change the page of the toolbar and have my buffs, heal, and non essential abilities on the 3rd page.

Once I memorized everything, I didnt skip a beat. Sentinel is the toughest class to play and requires a good rotation. After a while, it was second nature and I was taking on comparable level elites and champions with no problems. I actually did better in PvP with a controller than I had with a keyboard.

Now, I am 100% comfortable with a controller since i'm a console gamer and I know it like the back of my hand so it wasnt hard for me to adjust to all the buttons. About the only thing i really cant do well with a controller is using menus and messing with your inventory.
