Collector’s Edition wins out for Oceanic players

We’ve just closed our latest poll, which asked for reader intentions on whether they’d be pre-ordering the game from overseas, and what version they’d be getting.

Not surprisingly, those dedicated enough to order from overseas in the absence of a local launch, have tended to go the whole hog and buy the Collector’s Edition:

It’ll be interesting to see if that trend continues as more people buy the game (assuming some sort of Collector’s Edition continues to be offered in the future).

Check out our new poll on the front of our site. This time we’re asking what your primary toon is likely to be.

Latest poll results: we like to solo

The second of our ongoing polls has wrapped up. The question this time was around likelihood to join a guild, and if so whether the focus in the guild would be social or serious progression. The results:

The outright winner was soloing, although nearly half of respondents are going to join a guild, with 25% doing it for the progression, the rest for the social interaction. Interestingly, one in five are unsure of what they’ll do. That’s likely to be the cohort who maybe haven’t been in a guild before or who haven’t comprehensively played an MMO before and so don’t know both sides of the equation (solo or guild).

There’s certainly plenty of guild talk on our forums and the oceanic guild listing continues to grow, so there’s no doubt guilds will play a central role. That said, the claimed story-centric focus of SWTOR means that solo or ad-hoc team questing will be a very appealing option as well.

Thanks to all who voted, and the new poll is now up on the site – this time the subject is oceanic servers.
