Redcorn – General Discussion

Voiced Missions not Worth It in the End
I loved the voice acting. It really pulled me into the story…..the first time. Now I space bar everything except class story line when leveling an alt. I had thought that I would want to play the different ‘decision’ trees through the conversation, but have found them to be inconsequential making the replay not worthwhile.

So this I believe will be the first and last MMORPG that offers such an extensive voiced narrative. The cost benefit does not exist to support it. The lead time required for development is also a problem.

What do you think?

Server Population is GROWING!
Fleet used to only have about 50-60 republic players, but now during prime time has over 100!

As BW releases more copies of the game, more players log in.

Tis a good day.


Halinmonk – Story & Lore

Which romance is best written?
I’ve always been fond of Corso Rig’s storyline, but right now I am leaning towards Andro Revel as the most well written. It feels very…realistic.



Vian – Community

In my decades of gaming, I’ve met a lot of gamers, and really good ones are much rarer than pretty good ones. And given that a lot of women hide their gender online so they aren’t pre-judged by people who assume that they’ll never measure up, you can’t actually say you’ve never met an exceptional woman gamer unless you ask every single person you ever game with what their gender is.

Which would be either creepy, or improbable. I’m going with the latter.

But even if you haven’t met a really good woman gamer, that says more about your social life than about our playing abilities. It’s not like we don’t exist.

Whatever “good” means – is it DPS? Kills per raid? Bank balance? How much fun you have when you’re with them? How long they’ve been gaming? Whether they do what you want them to or not? That time they managed to keep you alive even though you kept standing in the @$%^ fire like a Noob? Is someone who’s really good at playing the way they want to play a lesser gamer because you think they should be playing your way? Your statement is essentially unquantifiable.



Jasta_ – Fan Art

I guess this is kind of fan art…

Been a bit disgusted with the amount of crying lately on these boards. Some people are never happy. I just don’t see what people are so worked up about, this is one of the best MMO’s I’ve ever played – it’s not perfect no but then what is?

Anyway I was wondering what the original Star Wars movies would have been like if the characters had forums to whinge on…

Yeah I wouldn’t be surprised if this violated some form of TOS but it’s all in fun, honest:
