    yea to many rumors, i want the truth! :-) hehe

    all tho i hope its not "HEAVILY" instanced, sounds like alot :-p

     

    Instanced or not. MMO or not. Insignificant as long as it's good.

    My thoughts exactly.  If the gameplay is good, I couldn't care less if the PC was stuck inside a cube for the entire game.

    I'm not worying about the gameplay. I am worying about MA IMMERSHUNZ!11

    If only half of the rumors are true, and it's essentially a guildwars but with more distinct storylines I think I won't touch it, even if the gameplay is fun. I like my ' rpg'  in ' mmorpg'  too much for that. But we shall see.

    Micro-transaction does not necessarily mean the game will have an  item mall. It may mean nothing more than every couple weeks they'll release a new mini exspansion for a few dollars.

     I do believe that Bioware has already stated that TOR will be micro-transaction based.

    Someone at Bioware said this and then retracted it. At this point, we don't know what it will be.

    The most frustrating thing about all of this for me is the fact that so little information has been released so far... it leads to wild, uninformed speculation.

    I am looking for the dev interview where they say they like WoW and will use it as a model.

     

    so they are going for the millioners crowd? if so, they wont get many subs, i dont like it when its not fair for everyone, everyone plays the same game, bought it, they should be treated the same, imo

     

    People always overreact to this micro-transaction payment plan. It also shows who has a superiority complex when they throw a temper tantrum because someone with more money could get the new shiny items and they were too pig headed to buy it. You are not paying a sub fee so instead spend that $15.00 a month on transactions to get your "shinies"

     

    I for one love micro-transaction because I can get away with a free game while everyone else needs to be "superior" and drop massive cash on it.

     

     



     

    It is not about superiority, it is about playing a game on equal terms, WoW shows us it is by far the most profitable and most popular.

    I am not very interested in TOR, and if it will be micro transaction based, I won't even try it.

    I still think they will make it 50/50, otherwise they would not have called it MMO. But thats just my hope. ;)

    No one knows the business model yet. Many Bioware employees have said that it is still in the works.   Also Bioware and EA will be parting ways down the line, so EA does not have much say in the future of Bioware and Pandemic games. =o)

    As they get closer to the finished product then more info should becoming availible to us. Think most companies are starting to get it and not give too much info on games while in development.

    I hope its not instanced but if it dones excelllently and its not massively noticeable then should be fine.

     

    Something new that i haven't seen mmos do is have a companion character. Not really sure how good this is gonna be but it looks interesting. Just hoping its not a gimmick addition to show the mmo is different.

     

    All will be reavealed i guess....
