also..is it still set paths u can explore on planets? is it free roam etc?

    On the Fleet there is a character in carbonite.  When I clicked on it it started me on some sort of bounty hunter quest and it looked like it might be a bounty hunter quest line.  Haven't had a chance to follow up on it yet.

    No they cannot, SWTOR is nothing like SWG at all, hence why it has died off into F2P hell.

     

    It sounds like you might be searching for a certain large, flightless bird.  Similar to an Ostrich maybe?  But not quite...

    That was very cryptic...after searching Wikipedia for "Flightless Birds' and having a big think i finally worked that out..

    Maybe im just really slow today..

    Tat:  In answer to your questions:

     

    1) You can't bounty hunt players.  There is the full Class Questline where you are involved in the Great Hunt, and the aftermath, but this is purely PVE based stuff.  The person in carbonite is a quest line trigger for the monthly "Bounty Brokers Association" event.  Again, PVE only.

     

    2) The planets are ordered based on level.  For example, you won't find any quests on Makeb until you are level 50 (and have the Rise of the Hutt Cartel expansion pack).  However, you CAN fly to any planet you wish to, and wander all over said planet to your heart's content (or wallet's, whichever may come first.)

     

    Hopefully this gives you good info.

    Posts like yours are lame man.

     

    First off, lets look at just how fugged up SWG was....

    Max of 300k ish subs of which 100k ish dropped within the first yr. Making matters worse, the design of the game forced people to make multiple accounts for their crafting alts, which in turn meant the actual unique users were probably more in the neighborhood of 140k or so.

    Unstable servers. Recursive macroing. Alpha class in a PVP game. Non working skill paths. Do I really need to continue? It was a steaming pile.

    Not one, but two revamps were tried to stabilize the sub numbers. Which finally resulted in the numbers dropping so far, a reported 10k was all that were online playing on a Friday evening. Estimates of 50k to 100k subs total. It limped on for yrs on Sony All Access Pass, and was finally put down.

     

    Where as SWTOR took off with 2M in box sales, dropped in popularity due to some issues, and too many launch servers. They cleaned some things up, merged servers, yet still has more subs after 3 yrs than SWG had during its first yr peak. Not to mention all the extra thru the cash shop.

     

    SWTOR has made tons of money because it didn't follow SWG's example. Whether you want to accept reality, or live in an alternate universe is up to you.

     

    @OP Nah SWTOR doesn't have PVP focus. You are looking for sandbox style play. Something TOR doesn't provide thankfully. Good luck finding a game you like

    i dont see why you could'nt bounty hunt players..  all you need is players to participate and you can organize it yourself

     

    check your server if people are willing (might be easier on a rp server)

    I had fun once, it was terrible.

    You want to BH leet dudez?

    Easy, go to PvP server and grief as much as you want. Reading the posts make it sound that is what you want to do anyway.

    You just want a "justified excuse"

    BH in SWG was some of the most fun I have ever had in an MMO. It's not the same as griefing...many times your target was a [email protected] and it was not an easy job. By the way OP...there.....is...another Skywalker.... (yes another cryptic message)

    NIce Pivot to calling OP a griefer. A bounty system in games is usually either triggered by faction activity, or by direct killing in PvP.

    I can't even imagine the consternation that would occur if people e on the Fleet had to watch their backs for Bounty Hunters. Even more than that, I can't imagine how they would get a bounty to begin with. There is no system in that game for actions having a consequence. You just rinse and repeat instances.

    This. I enjoyed my time in SWG but it had SO MANY game breaking issues that I would never put up with today. Especially for one that demanded a sub fee for just one character per server.

    A player bounty system would never work in TOR. You think jedi hiding in houses was frustrating? Try catching them when they are spending time in multiple instances on the fleet or on planets that are faction specific. You'd never find them.

    Plus I don't miss the nerf wars that went on the game's forums. Jedi would whine that they should NEVER die to a Bounty Hunter and Bounty Hunters would gripe that Jedi were impossible to kill. Each patch seemed to cater to the jedi players with skills across multiple professions getting the nerf bat and resentment built because of favoritism. It's just not worth the headaches. If you are one of those players who gets his jollies off on jumping players then join a PVP server.
