Star Wars: The Old Republic III

I'll say.
This is my third entry regarding SWTOR. Part one can be found here and part two is located right there. Seems to be that my original suspicion regarding the pre-launch guild system has been confirmed. Maybe I should be a gaming prophet rather than a simple reviewer.

The pre-launch Guild Headquarters currently allows you to select between three different server types for your guild: PvE, PvP, and RP, which will determine your server placement during Phase 3: Deployment. During Deployment, we will be placing all eligible guilds that select 'RP' onto RP-PvE servers by default. If a guild wishes to exist on an RP-PvP server, they will need to create their guild manually on a new server once they reach their Capital World (Dromund Kaas or Coruscant) and create their guild.

The decision to make RP-PvP servers an option for players was made recently, which is why the choice was not available in the Guild Headquarters to start with. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes, but we hope you are as excited as we are to be able to choose this option for your guild in the game at launch.

This means that even if your guild has been per-registered for months now, you will still have to choose your server manually, race to get off your Origin World, pay the fee, and create your guild before someone else claims the name. Which is, more than a little disappointing. Though obviously I can't claim to be shocked.


  1. I need to know the deets on what I'm rolling, where I'm rolling it, and the contact information for single ladies who want to roll with me. :D

  2. As soon as there is an official server list released I shall provide to you all of this information!

    Right now it seems we're short on healer types, if that's the sort of thing you'd be at all interested in. It'd be super helpful. If not you can always roll whatever. I guess at some point I should go into more detail about the class options.

  3. You'll want to keep an eye on They'll be posting the RP-PVE and RP-PVP servers there (basically the community is deciding to concentrate on one server of each type for one strong community)

  4. Coincidentally, I believe that site is run by the same group who took over running the SWG RP community site (4000 members) after I left. There is also a large movement to do the same on the official SWTOR forums as well though. So I'll naturally be keeping an eye out.

  5. It's kind of like looking at my own website, only I didn't do all of the work this time.

  6. We should put together an all healer group and just heal our way to victory.
