Tab targeting now more accurately takes into account which enemies are on screen.
Thank fucking God. Grossly inaccurate tab targeting was pissing me off.

Using the /stuck command will no longer kill the player unless a safe location cannot be determined. Players can now only use /stuck every 120 seconds
They really do listen. This was my single biggest complaint. I'll still have to see how this does get implemented, but if this doesn't kill me because of a screw-up in their setup (like me getting stuck while crossing a bridge and not being able to move in any direction), then I'll take the occasional death.

Meh, game launches in roughly two weeks and I've played enough to decide what class I'm choosing.

I mean DEATH TO YOU AND PENIS CANCER RAWR!

Yeah, I still haven't received an email. However, this will just leave me with more time to foil the vile machinations of the Joker, the Riddler and Hugo Strange.

I just don't know how much more SWTOR beta I have in me. I can't take playing these characters and then not getting to keep them. I have had the angst of not being able to log back into my original beta weekend Sorcerer and Smuggler.

Also, is anyone exceptionally nerdy/spergy/OCD like me and has planned out their race/class/profession choices for all the characters on both Repub and Empire side?

I haven't touched light side yet. Probably won't for a long time. Dark Side I have totally planned.

Somewhat loosely, but yes. At first I'll mainly be playing a Trooper/Commando to run with my guild, and then a Sith Warrior/Juggernaut for my "me time".

There's still a lot of research that I need to do into the particulars of the crafting skills, so the screws will get tightened some more over the next couple of weeks.

My Commando will probably be Armstech/Scavenging/Investigation, as I liked the way that played out in beta, and I'll probably keep her Human and Light Side. I have gotten no further than that.

I still haven't even finalized a class, though. I'm tempted to do a Dark Side Smuggler with Biochem/Bioanalysis. But then there are Jedi and Sith and oh my god this game.

The SWTOR site's crafting page is nigh useless (http://www.swtor.com/info/systems/crew-skills).

What's a good resource to get nitty gritty details?

Edit: The IGN crafting page has some better details - http://www.ign.com/wikis/star-wars-t...s_%26_Crafting

Here we go, found via Ars Technica. This image tells me everything I need to know. Also, it looks like a single Crafting Skill can be mostly self-sufficient by taking the one related Gathering Skill and a relevant Mission Skill. You may have a bit of a dependency if you want heavy armor, but need schematics, etc.

I guess because there's no characters yet, officially.

Holy shit. Every screenshot that I took last weekend, taken from within the game hitting the appropriate key, is just a black box weighing in at 33 kb. Thanks, Bioware. Thanks.

And I just pre-ordered.

Not got a code yet or anything but I'm sure that will arrive sooner or later.

So. Is anybody else getting more and more skeptical and leery of this game as it goes on? Just because the website is so consistently having problems?

I haven't had it accept a password for more than a 48 hours. I'll go to the site, log in, check stuff out.

3 days later, go to log in-and it won't accept it. On all browsers?

So I go to reset the password, and it takes days and/or multiple tries to be able to.

That new password will subsequently not work the next time I log on.

Dealing with this for the 6th time right now. I've also tried across multiple computers in different locations, to no avail.

edit: I mean, I pre-ordered already. But I don't plan on just paying for a 3 month subscription right off the bat anymore, or even inputting credit card data at all-strictly game cards, if that's possible. If shit like this doesn't clear up? No matter the gameplay, I won't be playing long.

Whoops Catwoman's the Female Bounty Hunter actually. Female Smuggler was Aerie in BGII though. >_>
Ohh, in Gargoyles too, now wonder the name was familiar.

Damn, I uninstalled and didn't see the part about keeping the client. And now I can't redownload the client from the website, because I'm not in the upcoming beta. Damn.
