    'Jedi' religion most popular alternative faith in Great Britain

     

    Today's Census figures show that 176,632 people in England and Wales identify themselves as Jedi Knights, making it the most popular faith in the "Other Religions" category on the Census and the seventh most popular faith overall.

     

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/religion/9737886/Jedi-religion-most-popular-alternative-faith.html

     

    .....they probably all play SWTOR image

     

    Then if you read further, following the source of their information (OF YOUR OWN LINK):

    Why did people answer “Jedi”?

    Much of the public and media discussion focused on legitimate concerns with the census, which the “Jedi” answer could be disruptively used to promote. Some reasons that non-religious people in particular answered “Jedi” include:

    • concern about how ‘religion’ data might be used
    • concern about the inclusion of a question on religion at all
    • making a statement about privacy or annoyance with interference
    • a reaction against the apparent presumption of having a religion
    • making a point about the way people tend to legitimize religion based on its antiquity or number of adherents
    • because it was funny

    Should I answer “Jedi”?

    Our recommendation is that if you are not religious, answer “No religion”, because although the ONS will count “Jedi” answers as non-religious, other commentators, organisations, or religious institutions may disaggregate these results and refer only to the explicit “No religion” answers. You would then be omitted if you answered “Jedi”.

    To be clear: the ONS does say it will interpret “Jedi” answers as belonging under the “No religion” category (and it will report the Jedi number separately as well). However, the concern, as with all specific answers including “atheist” or “humanist”, is that other organisations using the data will disaggregate them. They may for example cite the ambiguity of the meaning of putting “Jedi” (see previous section) and so use only explicit “No religion” answers. This would result in lower figures for the non-religious.

    If you want to write Jedi as a protest against being asked the question at all, see Why should I answer the question at all?

    Our campaign is aimed at non-religious people. If you actually identify, religiously, as a Jedi, then that’s what you should put.

    Darn, you really had to spoil all that fun /grin

    From my fan mail, I'm supposedly a hater, so it's my job :P

     

    You have to pick something less intuitive, like how SWTOR won the Game Developers Choice Online Awards.

    In that case it took awhile for observers to figure out that the people who voted for SWTOR as the #1 game ever also worked for EA (or had worked for EA or were affiliated with one of their studios).

    PS, I'm sort of loyal to the empire, but nobody knows much about me .. at least none of those still alive .. >!

    Nickel and diming customers is SWTOR's way of life. So, using this logic. "life" day is celebrated BY buying things in the cash shop. ;)

    They'll still have to come to work, because (contrary to doomsday ratings shows & news networks), beyond the Winter Solstice is a new age, not an end.   It will be an age of misery and destruction, but a new age none-the-less :P  The resetting of the Mayan calendar is many things, I won't get into them though.

    GW2 Added in 5 months:

    2 Major Events (Halloween and Karka stuff)

    New zone map: Southsun Cove

    I forget the number, but during the events they add crazy new Jump Puzzles

    1 New PvP Map

    Structured PvP changes, enables competitive players to go at it without facerolling pugs.

    New stuff on the Black Lion Trade Center such as: Event Costume Skins and The Kit that allows you change the LOOK of your character.

    New dungeon mode: Fractals that go on and on until you hit Level 50 fractal, IIRC.

    New Ascended Gear

    Class Balances (although it's still not enough)

    And now, WINTERSDAY event, which will add more itemization to the game and a pretty significant update to World V World

     

    SWTOR added in 1 year:

    2 Flashpoints (?) not sure tbh.

    2 Warzones

    2 Operations

    More Cartel Stuff that really still doesn't make much sense to me.

    New PvE Zones (Belsavis and Corellia) Dailies I think it was.

    ReSkinned tiered gear

    ReSkinned Mounts

    PvP adjustments (which is still lacking)

     

    I've played SWTOR since I was in beta for a year before launch. Got the CE and all. And honestly, for a P2P game, that's not a lot of content compared to a B2P game that lets you access the WHOLE game with no sub fee.

    If anything, I'd compare SWTOR to RIFT as far as how content is implemented.

    Whats funny is I was actually making the more logical comparison (SWTOR since free to play launch, GW2 since launch) and SWTOR still looks bad.

    Guildwars 2 does the same thing, don't see people complaining about that.

     

    Truthfully I don't mind this in moderation, just a company needs to consider the fact there is a fine line to walk where people can enjoy the holiday or where they just can't due to it being based to much on RL cash (or spending a lot in game to do so). Its about achieving that balance.

    Really would like to know which geniouses work at EA and let this kind of thing get out :)

    But now it seems that when they announce event it means a new gambling pack in Cartel shop.

    Protip for you:

     

    EA/Bioware have NEVER announced an event for Life Day.

    All that has happened is that some Life Day items were data mined and fans assumed there would be an event. Made posts about it and as such it became a true story.

    Not one announcement from Bioware has ever been made around a Life Day event in game.

    But still, don't let inconvenient things like facts get in the way or your trolling :)

    People jump on the bash TOR bandwagon because EA keep shooting themselves in the foot. f2p hasn't even been out for a month yet and they've already added the best ship upgrades available through real cash.  GW2 cash shop is bad in some ways too from what I seen.. additional character slot prices are a joke but at least to the best of my knowledge, you can't buy top tier gear on there.

    They never announced any of their other events too.

    The number of dissapointed people is...big...even fanbois were in disbelief...but but but...there will be an event in a week or so...there must be..., except few shills spout some nonsense. Just pop over to official forums, its a massacre, and thats with threads dissapearing lef and right :)

    Sorry that people put some faith in EA and end up in dissapointment.

    And im pretty sure Hickman announced Life Day event in one of the interviews, but he obviously didnt mean actual ingame event but who cares. People end up dissapinted becuase of their slopiness and inability to clearly communicate anything to their playerbase.

    So instead improving that they go to silence/ignorance mode. How stupid is that? THATS the problem with them.

    You may not be able to buy the best gear in GW2 but you can buy enough gold through their cash shop to buy anything you want in game. Any game that allows you to buy game gold with real money through their cash shops wins hands down as the saddest game when it comes to cash shops. How can you compare that to any other game?

    You can stick stuff up from the cartel market on the GTN, there is very little difference. I made a ton from my 2k + cartel coins I had last month.

    I would say there is a difference and that would be your not guaranteed anything when you try to sell an item. When you straight up buy gold directly from the game store you are guaranteed.

    It just annoys me that GW2 implements a shameful holiday based cash grab at Halloween and everyone thinks Anet rock. EA/BW do the same but apparently it makes them the worst company ever...

     

    If you are referring to P2Win then you have the option to grind out the ship comps in game....if you are then going to say its too much of a grind, how come the best PVP / Raid gear takes a couple of months farming to acquire? Should the best ship gear in game not equally take a month or so of farming to acquire?

    Really dont see the probloem, its not P2Win if you are not playing against anyone and best in game gear should require some degree of effort IMO.

  • SendenSenden PrivatePosts: 585Member Uncommon
    It's not pay to win but it's about as close as you can get to it. I agree that the best gear should take a while to farm however now you don't have to take that time, instead you can just spend cash to get it and that is where the problem lays for me personally. I personally don't care too much for GW2 however Arena Net took the time to build an enviable rapport with their fanbase and regularly do stuff like participate in community podcasts.It's not surprising that many fans feel the need to defend them when they take the time to make them feel valuable.

    People jump on the bash TOR bandwagon because EA keep shooting themselves in the foot. f2p hasn't even been out for a month yet and they've already added the best ship upgrades available through real cash.  GW2 cash shop is bad in some ways too from what I seen.. additional character slot prices are a joke but at least to the best of my knowledge, you can't buy top tier gear on there.

    It just annoys me that GW2 implements a shameful holiday based cash grab at Halloween and everyone thinks Anet rock. EA/BW do the same but apparently it makes them the worst company ever...

     

    If you are referring to P2Win then you have the option to grind out the ship comps in game....if you are then going to say its too much of a grind, how come the best PVP / Raid gear takes a couple of months farming to acquire? Should the best ship gear in game not equally take a month or so of farming to acquire?

    Really dont see the probloem, its not P2Win if you are not playing against anyone and best in game gear should require some degree of effort IMO.

    I dont really see how the ship items are P2W.  If you want them great buy them..but buy a pass too...otherwise your only using them 3 times a week.  Not like the space game has any bearing, really, on the "main" game.

    Except that you will be limited to 6 and will have to buy 2 slots to have access to all 8 (or sub).

    Yes, its coming :)

    I would say there is a difference and that would be your not guaranteed anything when you try to sell an item. When you straight up buy gold directly from the game store you are guaranteed.

    No theres no difference, you convert real money to ingame currency, just the merhod is different, and in SWTOR you CAN actually buy best mods with credits.

    Just when you think EA/Bio can be no more moronic , that interview posted a few back and the quote from the official post on the forums is pure comedy gold.

     

    SWTOR continues to be a 101 course in what not to do in mmorpg development and management.

    Bioware has gone from Baldur's Gate days to being the joke of the mmorpg world.

    Bit sad , while still amusing to watch the comedic ineptness reach new heights also.

    And at the same time TSW in one swoop shows the opposite of how to do a no sub model that makes EA look even more moronic.

    Just keeps getting better.

    yea they banned me from forums, while andryah get to continue to spin EAs moneygrab

    the market was ready for a STAR WARS MMO,,they made it , and sold it

    stupidly enough, i bought it,,a waste of of money

    after the 2 week honeymoon, this game only has lightsabers left,,and theyre bugged too

    their "space missions" is a joke,,look at STO

    some of the stories was good,,,but mostly it was star trek episode quality

    if this game cost 200 mio to make,,i wonder how much of that went DIRECTLY  into EAs own pockets

    maybe ill play a EA game again,,but not withoui at least 14 days trial

    the STAR WARS IP has suffered a lot because of this,,GG EA

    Andryah is one of the very few I put on ignore long ago and never missed it since then.

    You just can't discuss with this person. Reading his posts was a pure waste of time.

    Back to TOR, please don't blame EA for TOR. I mean well blame them for not having stepped in the game management earlier as well BioWare wasted milions of dollars without supervision from EA and delivered poorly in the end.
