Yeah! Who plays RPGs for story? It's all about the animated gore and the trinkets!

What takes longer, watching dialogue or starting it over and over?

These threads always make me sad.

Prior to launch, BoWare really thought that as the first story-driven, fully-voiced MMO, SWTOR would do to other MMOs what "talkies" did to silent film.

Boy were they ever mistaken.

As it turns out, all that time and money spent on voice acting just created another point of contention to bifurcate the community. Like hardcore vs. casual, pvp vs. carebear, now we have story vs. spacebar. How outstanding is that.

Not that I'm surprised--BW was pretty naive. I've seen it a hundred times before: potentially great ideas go horribly wrong when exposed to the toxic environment of an internet gaming community.

You know this is funny. I go out of my way not to PUG, but once the person who demanded that we spacebar was our GM... I graciously gave him the opportunity to sit back and relax and enjoy the story of the flashpoint. It was the least I could do for him since he seemed so uptight that day.

I know, right?

How about, if Bioware put PvP into the game, you are under obligation to play it 24/7? They also have PvE and, so, you are obliged to play that 24/7 too. Btw, they also got holocrons... MUST get them ALL! Don`t forget to have 12 chars on ALL types of servers... all this because Bioware created the content...

Funny how many things you MUST do, isn`t it?

For years before this game was released I feared this would happen. I'm now finally starting to play this game and I'm expecting to hear this a lot.

I go out of my way to help other people in MMOs, but I'm not going to skip the stories in this game. It's the reason I'm playing.

So instead of using manners you were taught (I hope) you would rather demand what you wanted, kicking anyone who disagrees. You know, I think a kick from you would be a badge of honour!

If it's a social points run, you space-bar. It's what you signed up for.

If it's a story run, or for gear, do what-cha like, but it's probably best to come to an agreement in any PuG *BEFORE* you enter the zone.

When I have people in the group telling us to spacebar, I deliberately watch the whole scene, even if it was my intention to skip.

If I am the tank, I also wait until the last second to make my dialogue choices.
What's that impatient Marauder @#$% going to do? Kick me?
Have fun going back into queue for a few hours.

I'm the tank.
I decide the pace.
