LAst time I checked EA's download manager was pretty sucky. It also wants to be always on just like steam yet offers no compelling feature to require being on all the time.

I'll just wait till they cave and offer their games through other channels.

Apparently outside of Origin, it will only be available by retail.
If like some Steam games, they may end up have you install Origin in the same stride.

That being said, Bioware have stated that you won't NEED Origin to play TOR.

All it needs is a manager to say "crap, not selling as well as we'd hoped" and BAM it's on steam/D2D/Gamersgate. From what Bioware says, sounds liek the actual game is just the standard MMO patcher exe

Everyone heard the freshest batch of rumors? lol
Hope some of these are wrong.

Released in the US and EU first. With an Aussie release later. (I don't think this will be true personally, but I have no basis)
Good and Bad choices (IE a Sith choosing Light responses) will affect story slightly, but will also make different cosmetic armor effects (ie a more bad sith will have more sith like armour and be able to access the red crystal) (this was said by a dev at e3)
Digital Distribution will ONLY be through EA's origin platform (previously known as EA download manager)
That means No Steam ! and EA controlling the whole digital market .... pretty lethal if there is no local retail release till much later!!
Big closed beta phase starting up at the end of June ....
Sounds like they are getting ready for that November release.
funny how all these rumors were true lol

Since this was created eons ago, can I assume we'll be re-polling? What's the general consensus around taking either side right now?

I'd prefer Sith but don't mind as I'll be wielding a glow stick which ever side I'm on :wink:

I also voted Sith, and picking the server aside, I think it'd be good if we came together as a guild on this one and took a stance - if for no other reason than to provide a sense of certainty around where the guild is going and what classes we'll be choosing from.

I have never been in the decision about which side we play on as a guild and I have no idea how we decide other than a democratic vote and we agree that that is a valid path to take. I would hate for the guild to be split across different sides but it's natural that you can't expect everyone to be happy with the decision and stick with the guild.

I think the bigger issue is PvE vs PvP servers. I myself have always been a PvP'r and enjoy the challenge of leveling on a PvP server. Even playing SWG I was PvP flagged all the time and Age of Conan I loved it, but I understand others hate it.

My argument in this game is if I was an Imperial Jedi would I walked past an Alliance Jedi out in the world, wave to him and go about my business or would I draw my lightsaber and go at him... These games are light vs dark, good vs evil and for me it takes away the immersion if the thrill isn't there. My 5c
They really should do away the different server mentality and you can 'flag' your self for PvP

Looking back at Southern Cross history.

DAoC - Albion
Star Wars Galaxies - Empire
World of Warcraft - Alliance
Everquest 2 - Neutral / Good
LotRO - n/a
Age of Conan - n/a
Warhammer Online - Destruction
RIFT - Guardian

Over the years we have had a good spread of the bad guys and the good guys.

Thoughts?

-Wastey :D
