Default SWG is calling you!

As Captain of the SWG division I thought I'd ask anyone interested what your general experience with MMORPG's are.

I'm assuming most of you havn't really played them before but I think there are a few veterans and so I'd like to get an indication of what kind of content our pages should contain.

I'm planning on a general definition of what MMORPG means along with a few 'terms' used in these games as well as a 'links' section.

Experience:

Asheron' Call (1 year)
Anarchy Onlne (1 year and beta)
Neocron (beta)
Asheron's Call 2 (3 months and beta) currently playing.

I havnt had any experience cause most of them are pay to play and I cant really afford it. Will that be the case with SWG?

This sort of game rarely draws a "mob" mentality.

If you can string together 2 or 3 other guys to play on-line at the same time, you can really have some fun on-line.

Imagine being in a group of 3 stormtroopers roaming the galaxy looking for rebel scum and then beating the crap out of them 3 on 1.

Of course, when you get well known for these antics, you'll have the galaxies best bounty hunters waiting for you to log on, not to mention every rebel in the sector.

Agreed. These games are a heap of fun if you can play with a regular group. Even just one other person can make a big difference.

You canot play Storm Troopers but you will be able to command them (essentially they are treated as pets )
