Here's a thread for who's on what server for Star Wars, their name, and their side. I'll update my post as soon as I know where I'll be!

-OJ

EDIT:
I have a Jedi Consular named Xel'jek on Master Dorak server

Pipergirl wanted me to post that he and his friends are on the Darth Sion server. It's a west coast server. First toon's Darkside "Piperborg".

I however am not playing it (I know, boo hoo) but I'll probably be watching the others play a bit though!

I got it pre-ordered but I'm not going to be able to get to it until Tuesday at the earliest.

Then I'm gone for X-Mas and likely won't be online much until the 28th.

I started on a different server, but didn't go very far, so I'll restart on Darth Sion.

Smuggler - Arynne
Inquisitor - Erynne
Consular - Irynne
Bounty Hunter - Orynne



...yep

How did this whole early start thing work? I have my receipt from Gamestop but there wasn't a code or instructions or anything.

You might be able to go back to the Gamestop and ask if they can give you one. Ours didn't come on our receipt, so we asked about it and they had to print out a separate receipt for it. They also said something about having run out or not being allowed to give them out at some point, but that "they had just gotten some more codes in".

Even after you get your early access code, we had to wait until we got another email saying that we had been granted early access, but I don't think you'd have to wait very long since they've probably already invited most of the pre-orders already (it was on a first-preorder, first-served basis, but we ordered on Monday and got in yesterday).

Piper says he & the boys haven't started a guild yet because he wanted to make sure that everyone was in agreement on the server.

Also, Mizz, can you help him figure out why he can't post here?

Because he doesn't have an account =p I just opened up registration again, but tell him to make an account ASAP cause we get a lot of bots signing up when we leave registration open =)

Servers are down for maintenance until 11p CST shabam, so you have some time to install =)

I'll be on my Bounty Hunter, Orynne, if anyone wants to say hi. I'll probably play for a few hours tonight at least, if lag isn't too bad.

I'm two hours into the "SW:TOR Experience" and I'm not particularly enamored yet.

Perhaps because I've yet to actually get to play the game.

It took 45 minutes to install the game. "No big deal," I said to myself. "There are a lot of files, and WoW takes a long time to install from scratch too." So I figured I'd use the time to poke through the manual, get a feel for the character types and controls, maybe soak up some of the lore.

Oh. Manual. Right. Dunno if they included one in the $150.00 CE, but we latecomers get a four page installation guide, most of which is legal disclaimer and warnings about epilepsy.

Anyway, the game finally finishes installing, and I whisk away to the website to set up my account. Now, being a Mass Effect/Dragon Age fan, I already have an EA/Bioware account for DLC. But when I try to log in, it's no go. "Funny," I think to myself, "surely the account information is centrally located and shared for all their titles." But no, apparently not. So I have to register a *second* account with Bioware in order to set up my SW:TOR Experience.

I finally get an account registered (and is it nit picky to point out that if you are going to insist on certain character/numerical constants in your password that you should perhaps point those out BEFORE people hit submit for the first time?) and the site asks me for more money. "Wait a minute," I ask. "Don't I get 30 free days to try this baby out?"

Well, you do, (although technically it tells me I'm already down a day) but not until you give them a way to bill you for next month, either through a credit card or a game time card. Does WoW do this? I honestly have forgotten, although I seem to recall not getting hit up for recurring payment plans immediately after registering.

But fine, I can always cancel my card info if I decide I don't like the game.

So the account hoo-haw is all taken care of, and I can now log in and get to gaming! Yay!

Except not. Opening up the client for the first time, I go to type in my login/pwd info when suddenly the text all goes dark. I put my info in anyway, hit Login, and what do I see but the following ominous message:

"You are attempting to login from a region we do not support."

Now look, I know Missouri isn't the most glamorous location on the planet, but it's not exactly Terra Incognita, you know? Puzzled, I close the client and try to start it back up again. Apparently it takes a few minutes for it to actually close even after the window has closed because Windows keeps telling me I can't have two instances of this program open.

Finally, the client starts back up. This time, it doesn't seem to think I'm trying to access the game from Greater Greater Lesser Trucial Abyssistan or wherever and accepts my login and password. Yay! I can has Game Time now?

Well, of course not. This is a MMO and there's patching to do.

"It just came out," I say to myself. "How bad can it be?"

Reader, NEVER ASK THAT QUESTION.

The patch itself isn't that bad, like 150 mb. No, the trouble begins when it goes to integrate itself with the install and reports back that my installation - which has already consumed 45 minutes of my day - is somehow borked and that it needs to try to "Repair" things.

BY DOWNLOADING 11.6 GIGS OF FILES!

Seriously? Why the hell did I bother to install this thing if it's just going to insist on doing it again, only more slowly?

So anyway, long story short (tl;dr version): I'll see you online tomorrow. Maybe.

One thing for sure - I'm definitely more inclined to go Sith at this point. Force choking people sounds pretty theraputic.

EDIT: At least it's finally working.

We don't have any plans tonight, so I'll be on either Arynne or Irynne =)

Well I finally got it up and running in a fairly playable state. Initially, I was in the 20 fpm range, but after some serious finagling, I'm at around 10-15 fps. If anyone has some tips and tricks for improving performance and such, let me know!

Darth Sion was full for me and on the west coast, so I made a Jedi Consular named Xel'jek on the Master Dorak server. How are you all enjoying it so far? How's DS coming along?

I've rolled multiple characters at this point, mostly just to grab the names.

Neiran - 10 Jedi Sage
Irenna - 10 Jedi Knight
Singarti - 7 Sith Warrior
Akaterin - 4 Imperial Agent

It's ok, so far. The Consular and Knight storylines on Tython were fun, although I liked the end of the Consular much more than the Knight, which I thought was kind of cheesy.

Voice acting is cool, but I read so much faster than these people talk and the alien speech either doesn't have enough sound files or the rng keeps giving me the "ni wanna wabba" clip over and over again.

Yikes. I don't play on a Mac so I don't know what to tell you. You're running natively or in Parallels/whatnot?

I made Sal: Jedi Knight Guardian and Salovia: Sith Warrior and a couple others for kicks, but right now Sal is my 'main' and close to 20 or something.

Unfortunately, there's not much more I can do on my side, but I think Bioware will probably do some more optimization in the coming weeks / months, since a lot of people are struggling to run it even on good systems.

I'm loving the Consular story so far, so who knows when I'll get around to the next toon :p

Bioware needs to fix the issue of not being able to add people to your friends list...asap. Its quite annoying that i can't add anyone unless they are online. And its hard to tell if they come online when i can't add them to my friends list.
