Meh, Other then the Star Wars coat of paint it still looks to play like every other MMO out there. =\

Well, I have never played an MMO before, but that video was really awesome to me. Lovely combat.

Till you realize its only clicking on the enemy and selecting your attacks... no real strategy involved. I bet it will be full of grinding aswell... they all are now.

Clicking the enemy and choosing when to use what attack sounds like KotOR to me, and I thought we both loved that game.

Maybe I should trial WoW to see what that plays like.

It wont play like KOTOR because it wont use the DnD system. You wont be able to pause the gameplay to think moves out... It's going to play like WoW, every game tries to mimic WoW.

looks like crap tbh. WoW nailed it with its system. Love the PVP!

& It was my first MMO as well.

The problem with all other MMO's is that they don't support there game after its released as much as Blizzard does, and this is where they fail.

Clearly shows that you never played another MMO before. If anything WoW has the weakest support out of all Major MMOs. There is a reason EQ1 has been going for over 10 years now...

Heck look at Lineage 2, It has had multiple (like 5?) free expansions for the game.

The reason why WoW has had such huge success is because its easy and its made by Blizzard. Everquest was the leader but it could never attract the casual market, it was too much of a grind and time sink. WoW looked at that and made the game easy to jump in and out of which made it look far more attractive to the active person. No longer did you need to play the game like it was a second job.

Agreed. Blizzard really does have the weakest. Turbine with Lotro adds so much more content in their game every 3 months then Blizzard does in 2 years between expansions.

I want to make fun of off camera alpha footage too! WoW is so much awesomer looking and just betterer! I will still be playing WoW when everybody is flying Jetson cars and having sex with robots because WoW is the awesomest!
