#19 - Can I destroy planets? Do most NPCs have a purpose or does it …  [+] (5 new replies) 6 hours ago on Random SWTOR Junk 0
User avatar #20 - monsterfruit (6 hours ago) [-]
God damn I wish destroying planets was a thing. As far as NPCs, there are clusters in towns/major quest centers, they all either give quests (and thus have full names and talk to you and such), or are pretty much scenery, most of the time not even displaying a name/information if you hover your mouse over them. And of course enemy NPCs, who are rather uniform, but can be passed off as they are all monsters, droids, or some sort of militant faction in uniform. Major enemy NPCs have names, and you will actually interact with them, so they are highly developed.

Looks promising depite my hatred of MMOs. Will definitely give it a try. When I get started, should I send you a PM so we can add each other?
User avatar #22 - monsterfruit (6 hours ago) [-]
Yeah definitely do that. If you wanted to play together I would be down to make a new character and play along side, it could be interesting to team up (Han and Luke style or something)
User avatar #23 - wertologist (6 hours ago) [-]
I'd like the idea of playing alongside one friend or maybe a select few, but it would be hard to coordinate when we could play. I usually work nights and I sleep during the day.

Nah thats fine, I tend to end up living crazy hours too so I could probably work something out. And I agree a small group could definitely be fun.

User avatar #18 - monsterfruit (6 hours ago) [-]
Yes for friends list. As you advance you will get new armor and weapons that are your level, but you don't really end up with a whole cluster of outleveled stuff just waiting to get into. And for species, once you unlock them you can change your appearance (which includes species) at the cartel markets located on the central fleets for each side, for a small fee.

I think its on steam, otherwise its just free off their website. And yes 100% free, no purchase necessary. New races are unlocked through using cartel coins (the real money currency). For cheap you can unlock one character, once they reach level 50 you get a legacy unlock for your whole account, otherwise you can just buy the species for your whole account. There might also be a free way to get new species but I'm not sure. Each species has its own customization (species is your first customization choice, then character specifics). So no identifying as Wookies (well maybe, they aren't playabe so maybeeeeeee, but there is a Wookie smuggler companion).
User avatar #17 - wertologist (6 hours ago) [-]
How do you change to another species when you unlock one? I plan on being a human male and make him look like me, but I'm just curious. Is there a friends list or something? Are there level requirements for certain armors/weapons?

User avatar #26 - xxkosukexx (5 hours ago) [-]
Okay, let me give you some perspective. You are partly right. Those black women are taking advantage of you, but most black people come from lower income homes while white people come from mostly upper middle class places. In your certain situation you are poor.

People like you are the reason racism is 'alive and well' in America. Stop blaming shitty circumstances and start taking accountability for yourself.

You are taking what i'm saying to anally. I am generalizing. I'm not saying all white people are upper class i mean most. Chill

and you're once again saying something incorrect
User avatar #56 - xxkosukexx (3 hours ago) [-]
So are you saying most upper class people are minorities? I'm wrong there? huh ok
#60 - Womens Study Major (3 hours ago) [-]
According to the US Census bureau, the average white income is in the 30K range while the average black income is in the 20K range. There is a difference but I wouldnt label 30,000 a year as 'upper middle class', even with a 2 parent household.

User avatar #34 - timmywankenobi (4 hours ago) [-]
It's not 40% of the total population is under middle class that includes many white people.
User avatar #36 - xxkosukexx (4 hours ago) [-]
Also includes a bunch of minorities.
User avatar #38 - timmywankenobi (4 hours ago) [-]
I know you moron I was pointing out that contrary to your claim most white folks are barely middle class at best and only a small amount of people of all races are upper middle class. To claim otherwise is ignorant.
User avatar #27 - wertologist (5 hours ago) [-]
My point is race has nothing to do with it. You're either born into money, you made the right connections, you have a good paying job, or you lucked out into a ton of money.
#86 - Womens Study Major (26 minutes ago) [-]
You just have to look at FJ to see that racism is alive and well. If racism is alive and well, then of course there is white privilege.
#12 - Mind telling me a bit about the game? Good character creation?…  [+] (12 new replies) 7 hours ago on Random SWTOR Junk 0
User avatar #13 - monsterfruit (7 hours ago) [-]
Hah of course. Character creation is pretty nice, there's hella sliders full of options to get some pretty cool customization in. Starting species are human, cyborg, and zabrak. Unfortunately the cyborg is only a human with face implants, but the zabraks are sick. Empire gets red Maul-esque ones, Republic has brown niggly ones. There are other species that you can buy or unlock by getting a character to level 50, such as Sith Pureblood, twilek, cathar, chiss, miraluka (blind and masked humans who see with the force), mirialan, and more. Lightsabers are a real catch to get, all four force classes receive a lightsaber at level ten, and then get new lightsabers all the time, so there is lots of diversity there. Each class has a unique ship (except the force factions for each side which share a ship design), it is unlocked upon completing the second (capital, so Coruscant or Dromund Kaas) planet. You can use it to fly all over the galaxy and your companions have their own rooms and shit, its really cool. There are also space missions you can do with your ship. Also, you have two dogfighting ships standard with each side, used for PVP arena fights. For hella credits (so late game) you can buy a stronghold, which is essentially a house, on the planet of your choice. All planets are free roam, but then broken down into regions for leveling and usually different enemy types. As far as story goes, each class has a unique story, which is furthermore broken down into multiple chapters, so its hard to really describe. I will say though that all the stories I have played are remarkably interesting and engaging. And yes, all dialogue is voice-acted, and by a huge variety of voice actors, which adds a bunch of smaller cutscenes. Furthermore, all conversations have a bunch of choices in them, allowing you to respond as your character would, and get really in character, and also build light side/dark side points (cont)
User avatar #14 - monsterfruit (7 hours ago) [-]
Points are really fun because they unlock other new things (red lightsabers for jedi, green and blue ones for sith) depending on the direction taken. Also the more dark side levels you get your character will get yellow and eventually red eyes and ashen skin with dark veins in it. Companions are a huge thing I would like to touch on, you collect them on your travels and they are super diverse. All of them help you fight, and interact with your character in a bunch of ways, with effort you can even romance them (also possible to get quick hookups with npcs you interact with, its hilarious).
#15 - wertologist (7 hours ago) [-]
Sounds fun. Really wanting to try it now. Is it on Steam? Is it 100% free or do I have to buy it once? How does it work with unlocking new races? Do you just go through the nearest Image as Designed and change up your species? Or do you just go around spouting "I was born a human male, but I identify as Wookie!".

Unfortunately not, I wish that was an option too (or turn off their avatars or something). Sort of helps to turn off the floating names and just play it like there's a bunch of people working towards whatever, like they are all just in universe people doing what in universe people do. And as I said the number of players rapidly tapers off, making it drastically easier to get in-character. On top of this, all the really story-driven segments (of which there are many) are player exclusive zones, like mini personal servers where only you are there interacting with everything.

I have exactly the same play style, I have never once played with other players, and the number of people around you drops rapidly the farther into the game you get (with each progressive planet you have essentially half as many players as the previous one).

It's free up until level 50, then there are 5 more levels which you can buy through the Hutt Cartel expansion. And honestly playing all the way up as f2p is totally doable and remarkably fun, I haven't put any money into it yet and its great.
User avatar #8 - wertologist (7 hours ago) [-]
Does it cater to my needs? I hate other players. I hate PvP happy people. I hate the 12 year olds. I hate the try-hards. I much prefer to play by myself without the need of others to be around. Does it offer a way to play by yourself without dealing with other players?
User avatar #9 - monsterfruit (7 hours ago) [-]
I have exactly the same play style, I have never once played with other players, and the number of people around you drops rapidly the farther into the game you get (with each progressive planet you have essentially half as many players as the previous one). Also, it is super easy to toggle off the chat box, and even if you do keep it open it tends to be people actually working towards parts of the game.
User avatar #10 - wertologist (7 hours ago) [-]
I like to imagine I'm actually part of that universe when I play a game. When there are other players, it become clear that I'm not. Is there any way to go to a private server or something?
User avatar #11 - monsterfruit (7 hours ago) [-]
Unfortunately not, I wish that was an option too (or turn off their avatars or something). Sort of helps to turn off the floating names and just play it like there's a bunch of people working towards whatever, like they are all just in universe people doing what in universe people do. And as I said the number of players rapidly tapers off, making it drastically easier to get in-character. On top of this, all the really story-driven segments (of which there are many) are player exclusive zones, like mini personal servers where only you are there interacting with everything.
#12 - wertologist (7 hours ago) [-]
Mind telling me a bit about the game? Good character creation? Easy to get a lightsaber? Get to have your own home/ship? Free roam? What's the story about? Details, man. Details!
User avatar #13 - monsterfruit (7 hours ago) [-]
Hah of course. Character creation is pretty nice, there's hella sliders full of options to get some pretty cool customization in. Starting species are human, cyborg, and zabrak. Unfortunately the cyborg is only a human with face implants, but the zabraks are sick. Empire gets red Maul-esque ones, Republic has brown niggly ones. There are other species that you can buy or unlock by getting a character to level 50, such as Sith Pureblood, twilek, cathar, chiss, miraluka (blind and masked humans who see with the force), mirialan, and more. Lightsabers are a real catch to get, all four force classes receive a lightsaber at level ten, and then get new lightsabers all the time, so there is lots of diversity there. Each class has a unique ship (except the force factions for each side which share a ship design), it is unlocked upon completing the second (capital, so Coruscant or Dromund Kaas) planet. You can use it to fly all over the galaxy and your companions have their own rooms and shit, its really cool. There are also space missions you can do with your ship. Also, you have two dogfighting ships standard with each side, used for PVP arena fights. For hella credits (so late game) you can buy a stronghold, which is essentially a house, on the planet of your choice. All planets are free roam, but then broken down into regions for leveling and usually different enemy types. As far as story goes, each class has a unique story, which is furthermore broken down into multiple chapters, so its hard to really describe. I will say though that all the stories I have played are remarkably interesting and engaging. And yes, all dialogue is voice-acted, and by a huge variety of voice actors, which adds a bunch of smaller cutscenes. Furthermore, all conversations have a bunch of choices in them, allowing you to respond as your character would, and get really in character, and also build light side/dark side points (cont)
User avatar #14 - monsterfruit (7 hours ago) [-]
Points are really fun because they unlock other new things (red lightsabers for jedi, green and blue ones for sith) depending on the direction taken. Also the more dark side levels you get your character will get yellow and eventually red eyes and ashen skin with dark veins in it. Companions are a huge thing I would like to touch on, you collect them on your travels and they are super diverse. All of them help you fight, and interact with your character in a bunch of ways, with effort you can even romance them (also possible to get quick hookups with npcs you interact with, its hilarious).
#15 - wertologist (7 hours ago) [-]
Sounds fun. Really wanting to try it now. Is it on Steam? Is it 100% free or do I have to buy it once? How does it work with unlocking new races? Do you just go through the nearest Image as Designed and change up your species? Or do you just go around spouting "I was born a human male, but I identify as Wookie!".
User avatar #16 - monsterfruit (6 hours ago) [-]
I think its on steam, otherwise its just free off their website. And yes 100% free, no purchase necessary. New races are unlocked through using cartel coins (the real money currency). For cheap you can unlock one character, once they reach level 50 you get a legacy unlock for your whole account, otherwise you can just buy the species for your whole account. There might also be a free way to get new species but I'm not sure. Each species has its own customization (species is your first customization choice, then character specifics). So no identifying as Wookies (well maybe, they aren't playabe so maybeeeeeee, but there is a Wookie smuggler companion).
User avatar #17 - wertologist (6 hours ago) [-]
How do you change to another species when you unlock one? I plan on being a human male and make him look like me, but I'm just curious. Is there a friends list or something? Are there level requirements for certain armors/weapons?
User avatar #18 - monsterfruit (6 hours ago) [-]
Yes for friends list. As you advance you will get new armor and weapons that are your level, but you don't really end up with a whole cluster of outleveled stuff just waiting to get into. And for species, once you unlock them you can change your appearance (which includes species) at the cartel markets located on the central fleets for each side, for a small fee.
User avatar #19 - wertologist (6 hours ago) [-]
Can I destroy planets? Do most NPCs have a purpose or does it look like a generic RPG where there are a ton of "____ Citizen"?
User avatar #20 - monsterfruit (6 hours ago) [-]
God damn I wish destroying planets was a thing. As far as NPCs, there are clusters in towns/major quest centers, they all either give quests (and thus have full names and talk to you and such), or are pretty much scenery, most of the time not even displaying a name/information if you hover your mouse over them. And of course enemy NPCs, who are rather uniform, but can be passed off as they are all monsters, droids, or some sort of militant faction in uniform. Major enemy NPCs have names, and you will actually interact with them, so they are highly developed.

You know, I bought it when it was released and played it for like a week before giving up on it. I loved the original two games (yes, even 2) but I'm not a huge MMO player in general. I agree that the subscription is stupid, but it's a free game now so I guess eeehhhh

If you were a fan of the original KotOR, then I warn you not to play the Revan arc
User avatar #6 - wertologist (9 hours ago) [-]
Sadly, I never got to play the original. Got to the end of the 2nd and never beat it. I usually despise MMOs because there are always thousands of better players and I like to feel like a god, not a generic useless player. I heard it's only free up to a certain level I think.
