PvP Video

Through the official SW:TOR Forums I stumbled across a really great video of the Alderaan Warzone.  Please enjoy!

Why WoW lovers should not comment on TOR without extensive research.

Recently a complete idiot posted a video entitled “Top Five Reasons Why Star Wars THe Old Republic May Not Kill WoW, you can find this utter osik here.

This is my responce to the guy.  Shame there is in now way enough room to post my reply on YouTube.

********************************************************************************

1. Sith healing. While true Sith are not known for their healing skills, this does not mean that no Sith ever used healing. Darth Bane did in fact use another’s pain to heal himself, but just one book later it was Darth Zannah that ensured that Bane survived. While true she did not heal him herself she still made sure he was healed. The YouTube moron, basically said that no Sith would ever make sure a companion was healed.

Also in the book Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, Palpatine healed gave some healing to Vader there on Mustafar.

2. Yes TOR is not based on the D20 that KoTOR was based off of, the character creation is form fitted into a class system… so? I may be missing something here, but I fail to see how this is important.

The YouTube moron stated that a SI cannot be skilled in lightsaber combat, but he failed to take into account the advanced classes.

3. Okay so BW has retconned some things about the Double Bladed Light Sabers. But in all reality, this is not a big deal and it will have no impact on the game and only minor impact on the extreme purists.

4. The YouTube moron stated that the game would be filled with bugs and is siting Dragon Age: Origins ( a word that he should pronounce correctly even if he is trying to show contempt, personally I think it shows a lack of maturity) and that BW doesn’t have resources to correct any bugs that may potentially exist. This is absurd.

Here is the big thing. Is BW “trying to topple WoW”? While I’m sure that EA/BW would absolutely love to have all of WoW’s subscriptions and leave WoW as a second rate MMORPG (which it is regardless) I have yet to hear any BW Staff state that TOR is a “WoW Killer”.

It is the fans that are saying and thinking this. Which I am sure that BW is appreciative of it.

Is TOR completely revolutionary in comparison to WoW? No. Does it have features that WoW doesn’t? Absolutely. Does that make TOR an improvement on WoW? I’d like to think so but truthfully only time will tell.

Interestingly enough, there is only one brief moment where the idiot who posted that video on YouTube actually showed anything from WoW, it is at 4:03 – 4:13(ish). The graphical comparison is laughable.

Some people may not like the stylized graphics in TOR, and I understand that, but line them up side by side (or like a complete idiot, put them in a YouTube video together) and you will see that the slightly better than 8 bit graphics of WoW are just plane horrible.

The biggest issue that I have with this fool is that he takes half truths and mixes them in with his own opinion. He does state some facts about TOR, but his lack of understanding about the game itself (and I’m talking simple things, things that anybody will learn by spending five minutes on the forums) allows him to twist those facts and misconstrue them.

At the end of the day all the names that I have called the poster on YouTube stand true. He is a moron, and he is a fool.

Will TOR “kill WoW”…? Honestly I doubt it, will it take a big chunk out of WoW’s revenue? Without a doubt yes.

********************************************************************************

 

I honestly feel sorry for the guy as he has no clue what he is talking about and until he actually does some research, and learns a lot more about TOR he will never understand why TOR is truthfully better than WoW.  It may not kill WoW, but honestly, nobody cares about “killing WoW”, we just want to play an awesome Star Wars game.

The “Time” is almost upon us!

Is it just me or are things starting to heat up in the world of Star Wars: The Old Republic?

Let us take a quick look at all the things that have happened since TORGuides when quite a few months ago:

1.  Pre-Orders have launched including information on Collectors Edition, Special Edition and the Standard Edition as well all the goodies that come with each specific edition.

If you have some how missed the mass quantity of internet advertisements you can find the pre-order information here.

2.  Minimum System Requirements have been announced, those specs are as follows:

OS Windows XP, Vista/7 CPU AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 4000+ or better · Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 2.0GHz or better RAM Windows XP: 1.5GB · Windows Vista and Windows 7: 2GB · PCs using a built-in graphical chipset, 2GB RAM recommended.  Video ATI X1800 or better* · nVidia 7800 or better* · Intel 4100 Integrated Graphics or better*  DVD-ROM 8x or better *Minimum of 256MB of on-board RAM and Shader 3.0 or better support.

Also you can find out if your PC can run the minimum specs at http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/ you will have to download a small Java App but it is safe, at least my anti-virus didn’t have an issue with it, and then select Star Wars: The Old Republic.  It takes maybe a minute and you’ll have the results in an easy to understand bar graph.  Personally my PC is about three years old and it blew the specs away.  So, if you have a half way decent PC you should be fine.

3.  We have received the final installation of the high quality CGI trailers.  This one named, “Return” features once again Satele Shan and Darth Malgus, as well as both of their former Masters.

4.  Lots and lots more.  Okay yes it is a bit of a cop out, but if we were to write about every single new revelation we’d run out of space on the server!

A Restart

Ladies and Gentlemen,

First off let me apologize for the lack of information on this Blog. Though I and my team have been active on the official TOR forums we have not been active here and that is a shame. So, how do we plan on rectifying that problem and make amends for our selfish lack of work? We are going to post the osik out of this place!
