Well I finally picked up SWTOR after telling myself to hold off on the game and see how it does. I had no desire to play my old mmo anymore so here I am.
My first 10 minutes of playing was pretty buggy. I started out as a smuggler and you know they have the cover mechanic. Well I go into cover for the first time and I'm staying in cover lol. I "get up" from cover and glide across to my next target. After relogging my character was back to normal.
Anyway after playing SWTOR for a few days with my highest being level 11 I have to say I'm enjoying the game. Its like SWTOR was made for me - I don't like crafting so having my companion gather and craft for me is awesome plus I tend to solo in MMOs so the playstyle of the game is fine and I like playing pet classes so companions are great.
I like how the classes mirror each other and how your companion can be sent away to sell your vendor junk. Having to stop in the middle of a huge zone just to vendor your junk is annoying.
One thing I've missed in other games is a social hub - a place where you can just hang out and chat. SWTOR seems to have that with the Imperial/Republic Fleets rest zones. I love it.
So thats my new player impression so far. I can see SWTOR being a game I can stay with for a while.
