So, who's going to buy this legendary Star Wars MMO? It's placed a few years after Knights of the Old Republic. The battle system is like nothing you've ever seen before on games such as World of Warcraft, Warhammer Online, and Guild Wars.
Edit: It's set to release around 2010-2011 and will most likely dominate WoW.
You can be either a Sith or be on the Galactic Empire (Jedi). Me, I'm going Sith, red Lightsaber and Force: Lightning and Force: Death Grip ftw
If you want more info on it and some videos, check out this website:

Well, I found Mass Effect to be great, but of course Sonic Chronicles was an epic fail, it's a Sonic game man, c'mon. Sonic in general just sucks, period. I didn't even get into the anime let alone the video games except for the one on Sega, everything else Failed.

It's made by BioWare and Lucas Arts. Lucas Arts was created by George Lucas himself, so most likely yes, he is helping to create this MMO.

I think most likely it will be a monthly fee, I can't say for sure, but the odds are leaning towards yes.

i lol'd at the "this will dominate WoW"

"AoC will own WoW!" did it happen? no it was epic fail.

"WAR will dominate WoW!" did it happen? not a tiny bit, but it does own the PVP in WoW atleast.

"SWTOR will dominate WoW!" Will it happen? no it won't since the player base of WoW is uhm around 11million now or something? and blizz will continue to update WoW.

So short answer

No it'll not dominate WoW, but it will surely get alot of players since the star wars fan base is surely big i guess?

I'm definitely getting it. I've been a fan of Bioware and The Knights of the old republic games since the first one came out. Bioware games are all usually pretty great and it looks like they're trying to build a different game (supposed to be heavily story based and your henchman will provide the story and character development) so it'll be nice to see not another grindfest or wow clone, assuming it does go that route.

Common even if you didn't like Mass Effect you can't say that game was bad, it's depending who you ask the best or one of the best games on the 360. The only thing I could've done without was the Mako exploration >.>

Hah, you're forgetting the big picture, World of Warcraft is based on Blizzards Warcraft series. They're nearing the end of their series, Warcraft III when Arthas dies (not physically, but mentally his mind is gone) and becomes the Lich King Ner'Zhul. They're reaching their end. What next? They're going to pull some bullshit out of their ass to continue World of Warcraft? I don't think so, and you're missing the big point, WoW was made for PvE, while WAR was made for PvP. What's to stop Blizzard from finishing up WoW and calling it quits, they still made billions. Anyway, they're combining forces with Activision soon, and who knows what that might do to World of Warcraft. They say Activision will not stop what they're doing with World of Warcraft and some other games, but if they won't do crap, what's the point of joining forces in the first place? Activision is a bigger company than Blizzard. They're famous for lots of successful games, I've only seen Blizzard famous for their Diablo series (which I didn't like much), Warcraft series, Starcraft series, and World of Warcraft. And uhm, no online game lasts forever. WoW has been out for years, due to new technologically advanced games, the odds are leaning towards Yes for SWTOR to push WoW out of the way. WAR was fail compared to WoW, yet it still got many people off of WoW. I'm not saying SWTOR will last forever, but this is a chance for another MMO to kick WoW out of the way, just like WoW kicked some other big MMO out of the way before. Who's to say, maybe after around 6-10 years after SWTOR is released, another big MMO will make it look like crap. Nothing lasts forever.

You're right about some stuff.

But you know that Warcraft cannot end if arthas dies, there's still tons and tons of other things that they could put in more patches/make a new expansion, sargeras, lady aszhara, deathwing, emerald dream, that sea thingie, etc etc it's alot of stuff they could put into WoW.

But ofc they have joined forces with Activision so who knows what will come next :P

Edit: Oh yeah im not saying that SWOTR will suck or anything i'll probably try it out since i pretty much try all new good MMO's so

You're most likely right in your first paragraph. And anyway, technically he's not Arthas anymore, he was when he killed the Mountain King in Warcraft III when he took Frostmourne, but after he wielded Frostmourne and the helmet to control the Scourge, his mind is just in the Void somewhere, his body is just a...what would you call it... a vessel? Blizzard is releasing too many people all at once. I mean, you can already kill Sapphiron, they're rushing it, I don't know why, they increased their subscribers by 1 million just because of WotLK alone.
I'm not saying WoW will just die out, I mean, I hated Guild Wars and AoC and WAR alone beat Guild Wars, but there's still a significant number of people playing it, but probably mainly cause it's the closest MMORPG to WoW and others that is free of charge. I know an MMO that would surely beat WoW. If somehow, WAR and Lord of the Rings Online could combine without screwing some shit up (in which case I doubt) they could beat WoW. WAR had better PvP, and LoTRO had way better PvE than WoW (in my opinion, it was the best PvE MMO ever). Although I did miss one point, WoW may run out of PvE ideas and run out of people to transfer from WCIII, but even then, they killed the WCIII lore in WoW (in my opinion). They could just as easily focus more on their PvP and who's to say it'll be horrible. They can leave their PvE as is since it's still fine. I just wish WoW would increase the level of mobs in old raids. In my opinion, the original WoW was the best. When the level cap was 60, the PvP gear looked way better than 70 and 80 gear, and the raids were much quicker and more enjoyable. Looking at new gear, Blizz is running out of designs, clearly the 60 gear is much better looking. So, if they want to continue going on, they should increase the raid levels, increase the gear stats, but keep the looks.

Edit: It would be great to see people running through stuff like Molten Core, Blackwing Lair, Onyxia's Lair, and Ahn'Qiraj at level 80 getting their gear back that looks awesome at 60, just with level 80 stats etc.

Oh yeah forgot that arthas was "killed" and you're pretty much right about everything you just said, i don't really have much more to say really, just BALANCE PVP IN WOW AMAGAD! ;O (and that will never happen :P)
