At the same time, looking over the results, I would say they look about right. Smugglers are relatively scarce Republic-side, and I would expect that the healer Scoundrel option would be rarer still over the dual-pistol Gunslinger option.

See my prior post on that issue, last page. I definitely see more Smugglers than Troopers, but I'll grant that's on a RP server.

Edit: Level 17, just got my ship.

I'm still on Ord Mantell, but I seem to see more people as Troopers than Smugglers. And almost all of them are either named Shepard or MalcolmReynolds.

But it's definitely a jolt once I hit Coruscant and it's like there was a fire sale on lightsabers.

Made it to coruscant with my smuggler. Proceeding to spend all of my time sending my companion out to get stuff, take stuff to craft weapons, sell weapons, send companion out.


This game is going to consume all my time.

Rather than selling weapons, you can also reverse engineer them to recoup materials and possibly discover enhanced schematics (blue/purple) for the same base item.

My favorite so far was the guy who was appalled and dropped that he spent 30 years in the oil industry and has never seen such shoddiness.

All over something that none of these idiots will even care about in a week.

I know, I've gotten two blue blaster, and a blaster rifle one that way. Plus since hardly anyone is on, and the market is in it's infancy, people are selling crafting mats stupid cheap. I'm buying everything.

I'm still wary of how and when to start serious market speculation. Stuff is going to be fluctuating all over the place, and I want a better idea of what supply and demand are going to be like before I start investing.

Ooh, thanks! But hey, where did you get that information anyway? I have some friends that preordered much later. So excited now.

Exactly. We will all get in to play soon enough. The sense of entitlement that a lot of the complainers seem to have is hilarious.

I don't think there's a tutorial, you get sent to the trainers to learn skills (around level 10 whenever you leave the starting planet) and all you get are codex entries with a brief description of each one.

Basically the codex is your tutorial once you hit the station.

Several groups of people are tracking pre-order dates vs. waves, and I believe the senior community manager over at BioWare posted that all pre-orders prior to 2 Oct are in as of today, and all pre-orders prior to ~25-30 November will be in as of tomorrow.

I hopped in a huttball match at level 11. I got fucking wrecked by a level 23 Jedi. The scaling is nice so that you're not completely destroyed by higher level players since there are no brackets but it still feels like it's really uneven to be lower level. I did a buttload/all the healing in that match. We ended up losing because people left and we didn't get replacements to fill the team, so it was a by default sort of thing.

Trying to login now, but The Harbinger is currently one of the only servers with a Queue. Oh well, it shouldn't be too long.

I'm in the Harbinger queue too. Dark Reaper looks like the only other server that approaches a queue with "Very Heavy" though I guess there could be one further down the list that I can't see.

Yeah, I've seen a higher population on Harbinger than other servers.
