Yeah, go ahead and have both Republic and Empire characters on Jedi Covenant, if you want; by my suggestion I wasn't trying to push people away from that option. But there is a max of 8 characters per server, so if you want to play all 8 Advanced Classes for both factions (as I certainly do), then you'll have to use at least 2 servers.

So if you want to play all 16 ACs (8 for each faction), and if you want to have one faction per server, then yes, I suggest using Empire on Kaas City and Republic on Jedi Covenant. My only reason for suggesting Kaas City was to at least give a start to those who want to play all 16 ACs.

I haven't done a single thing with any of my characters other than my main (lvl 17 Jedi Guardian), so there is no guild started yet on Kaas City...but there will be.... :emperor:

If the guilds are on two different servers we can't warzone together...from the looks of it though, it still wont be possible anyway.

Your character still isn't in the guild.... I randomly type in /ginvite Huma every once in a while but it says you're never on....

If we switch servers for DS I would suggest a newer server than Kaas City tho

Post subject:  Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic

Yeah, I'm not too worried about playing ALL the Advance Classes yet, since it looks like I'm kind of switching to the mirrors for the different factions. And really, I don't see myself keeping more than 4 characters as main, end content characters.

i've got my darkside on Rubat Crystal and my LS on JEdi Covenant. Rubat is an rp realm that my best friend started on so that's why i chose it. We have a guild there too. But as to covenant i think i will try to get at least 1 of every adv. class. that sound like it could be interesting.

Related to crafting (to go along with the chart that Ruhk posted), here is a very helpful link that I'll share with you guys (from the SWTOR site). It has a downloadable Excel file which contains everything you need to know for crafting.

Enjoy!

I got to play a bit today. Pretty much restarted my Agent, and reserved names for my Knight, Inquisitor, and Warrior.

Time to brave the queue again...

Yo! I got the game and made a Jedi Consular on the Jedi Covenant server.

I hate to suggest this, but the population for that server is rated to be very heavy. Maybe we could reallocate to a less populated server. I know that would cause everyone to restart characters but the game would flow much better..

Either way, my character's name is Garreth. He's a level 6 Miraluka Consular. I plan on specializing in Sage when the time comes to be the walking trauma center.

I must say that I really am liking the Consular. He may not do a lot of damage, but he can handle crowds quite nicely. When I was level 4, I got jumped by 4 level 7 flesh raiders and took them all out. Granted I leveled in the middle of the fight which healed me, but it was an awesome brawl that occurred. The Force lift, Projection and other telekinetic powers available to the Consular are fun to play around with.

Sincerely,
Jester007

It's a flub on Bioware's part. We'll just ahve to sit back and wait for free transfers. Otherwise it'll cost us like 10k credits to start a guild and the impossiblities of communicating in game untill then...

You guys are all just going to have to whisper "Cel" or "P'ruhk" when you are on. I am tired of trying various guild invites and the player not being on.

I admit, I didn't get on at the very peak times, but the queues weren't that bad. Finally got my AC for my Agent (sniper). I will see how I feel tomorrow, continuing on my Sniper or working on a Republic character. Anyway, my 4 characters so far are:

Agent/Sniper: Ares'cot'thra (bonus points if you can see what I did there)
JK: L'eto
Inquisitor: Shai'taan
Warrior: A'polyon

well looks like TOR isn't immune to launch day issues

It seems like every game these days appears to have some sort of issue on launch day lol...

I really have to disagree with the queues part of it, I've been on the oldest server to date for 7 days now and longest queue time I've had is 10 minutes. As far as bad registration codes....can't comment, I know the number I punched in for my security key didn't give me access to the security vendor, but I am more likely to attribute things like that to user error first.

here's an article from yesterday that gives more info on the long wait times http://massively.joystiq.com/2011/12/20/stephen-reid-addresses-swtor-server-load-issues/

I've had a 20+ minute queue twice now. Not too big of a deal, but I know other servers have it much worse (I've seen the "<1 hour" wait time a few times). That's a pretty standard issue with MMO launches, though, especially ones that are this big. It will sort itself out eventually.

As for the product codes, that's definitely a problem, but doesn't really reflect on the game. That's an issue that is A) EA's problem, since they're the publisher, not Bioware's, and B) doesn't effect gameplay in any way. It doesn't bother me too much, since I got my code via Origin with a digital copy. We'll see how EA plans to handle it, though; more than anything it will reflect on their customer support, which can be a big deal in an MMO.

Given the size of preorder base, there was no way to avoid the queues. Based on what people were saying during the early access, I'm surprised the about how low my waits have been.

I don't know what the problems are with registration codes, but mine was working to the point that I even had my CE items...today it says there is no active subscription and I am on a wait page when I try to go to my account.

This is a little disappointing. Things like this should be expected during launch...but not a rollback or loss of account....

mine also says no subscription, but I have not gotten my CE yet. So I may not be able to play until beginning of Jan.

Probably not. My frustration stems from having done all that is necessary but still stuck in the subscription que because they think I need a subscription I already gave them... The few times I've seen the screen it even has my cc info...!
