So, what server, guild, etc? I'm currently sitting trying to figure out which one to create a character on!

I'd used Steam's updater already, turns out there's an 11.11a set of drivers which Steam apparently doesn't know about though.

Suffice to say I've got a JK to level 8 so far...

Also, "Prototype Gamorrean Street Leggings"? Prototype Sprayed-On Shorts more like!

I think I am actually going to hold off on playing till release. I played a full day with the smugger and loved it. I want to take my time with this game and not rush through a bunch of stuff.

Although trying the Dark Side does sound fun.

Corellian Run has no queue. It's the only "light" server. I'm on there.

Probably because it had been down due to problems earlier.

This is so much fun at least so far.

Currently dancing in a Cantina. Sadly I can't figure out how to play music.

Just finished an 11 hour game session with the Sith Inquisitor. I made myself stop playing so I can enjoy playing with the Inquisitor when it releases. I dont want to spoil anymore of the story.

Hot damn is this a good MMO.

Biggest bug I've run into so far is the game not logging out. I click log out and it sits at the splash screen. I let it go for 10 minutes and it never changed.

I have only a few problems with the game so far, and maybe people can let me know if they can be worked around.

First, the tracking of the camera in combat. Out of combat, the camera seems to be sensitive enough (or maybe it's the fact that I use a mouse with a thumbball) that I have to be careful in spinning around. In combat, though, it can become a nightmare, as you try to turn to move toward the side. The camera follows the direction you turn, but you can't seem to face your target and run without it turning away and quickly screwing up the facing for certain attacks. Is there a way to lock the camera to face your current target while you turn to move in a different direction?

Second, and this one really burns me, is that if you get stuck, either in a graphics or a terrain problem, the only way out seems to be to type /unstuck. Typing it here, though, unlike any other game I'm aware of, literally kills you, forcing you to be respawned. That means every time it happens, your equipment is damaged. In my case, I ran into a graphics problem trying to cross this damned bridge as a bounty hunter to sabotage a series of generators. The problem was that even after I respawned, I could never cross the bridge, even if I moved back and went to a different part of it. Finally, after nearly being 'killed' a half a dozen times, I tried working my way around the outside of the fortified area. Got stuck there as well, and had to /unstuck and die at least twice more. It seems to me that the character gets punished for something that's might well be beyond his/her control. If the game has a glitch, why does the character and his equipment have to suffer?

Other than that, I did get frustrated with the number of crashes that came about later on, usually right after I finish a rather important event (meaning there was a cinematic just beforehand). But that I'll chalk up to the whole stress test thing (though it was a stress test for me as well).

Outside of these things, I'm loving the game already. They start off making you feel that the story is truly yours. I'm especially loving the bounty hunter's story at the moment, though the smuggler was doing nicely until the server crashed.

Do we know if X Com is going to be on a PvP or a PvE server? Was that an option when the guild was formed, to request a certain server type?

If it's PvE, we could start an X Com on the Sith side of the same server possibly.

Has anyone been able to load their characters from the previous beta? Mine are there, but the game basically crashes when I try to log into any of them.

Well, I might get little to no time on Monday, as I just had it confirmed that I have jury duty then. And God help me if I actually get on a jury.

A couple players in general chat were complaining of the same thing.

I switched over to a Jedi Knight to keep from spoiling the Sith Inquisitor story. On the Darth Bandon server, Sith greatly outnumber Jedi from what I saw. No where near the amount of players running around as Jedi on that server.

Also I found I prefer the female Jedi Knight voice to the male version. The dialog seems more natural.

Female Trooper: FemShep (Jennifer Hale)

Their male counterparts don't even stand a chance.

Imperial Agent/Bounty Hunter seems to be less played from my impression of the lag of the starting areas, but damn is the storyline of the IA good. Soo many good choices for classes and storylines. I have no idea what to play as main.

I had numerous crashes today, after not having any last time. But I got
my Femshep to level 21, and the trooper story kinda owns. Only ran one ship combat quest, which was fun enough as a diversion.

Isn't the male Jedi Knight voiced by David Hayter (the guy who does Solid Snake)?

edit: and the male Sith Warrior is the guy who does Alisdair in Dragon Age, which was all I could think of playing that class.

It's the same on Republic side from what I've seen. Smuggler and Trooper starting area is way less crowded. I liked how the first quests don't paint the rosiest picture of the good side, although it seems like Sith will be more popular anyway.

After trying the Smuggler, I'm pretty much sold on the IA being one of my first two characters. But boy am I gonna miss kicking people in the crotch and wacking them over the head with my blaster.

Gonna roll Bounty Hunter next, sinde I'm interested in the Trooper and want to try out the mechanics without spoiling me on the class storyline.

I played a Sith Warrior and a Jedi Knight to level 10 yesterday, and I must say that the Sith Warrior storyline was muuuch more interesting.
