what lesson? this games pvp is far from gear dependent with bolster and how quick you can get conq sets.

never known any mmo a new commer can jump into pvp have a very big chance of doing well b4 they get gear.

As I understand it, GW2 has completely horizontal gear progression.

And yes, SWTOR is highly gear dependent. The difference between full augmented obroan gear with stims/grenades and conquerer gear is pretty significant(well over 10%). Now that's not as ridiculous as we had things at launch with something like an 100% gap between people queueing on lowbies and people in battlemaster gear, but its still very significant.

I always played X-Wing and TIE Fighter with a mouse and keyboard.

I can almost guarantee that had you played those games with a joystick, you're experience and enjoyment factor would have been increased significantly. I tried using keyboard back in the day on Wing Commander games, it's the difference of night and day. If BW does support joystick, I will be owning the keyboard turners and users.

Note to BW: Please make sure to add Pitch and Yaw controls for speedier turns for dogfighting. It's kind of a requirement for "aerial" combat.

True there'll probably the occasional idiot running into a wall, which occasionally will probably be me, but the point is that space combat games (or minigames as the case may be) are a lot easier for players to learn and adapt to than the current ground-based type of combat. Looking forward to that.
As with anything, there is a certain learning curve. Getting the muscle memory for what your ship does and can do takes a little time, as does auto-recognizing the various reticles on your screen (I kept following one that I THOUGHT was "Your enemy is in THIS direction" but was instead "You will FLY in this direction"

It's not X-wing but wasn't meant to be. Still could use a few tweaks (the boost is nice, but last time I played, the W for extra speed had to be MAINTAINED (ditto the S to slow) instead of just ramping up and holding max or min speed. With one hand on keyboard and other on the mouse, holding the W to go just that little bit faster proved taxing on the fingers and concentration. Hope that one gets (or has been) taken care of.

Trailer is very good! I look forward to play these 12v12 battles!!

Now, i want to ask a simple question just to understand: If anyone subscribes today and subscribes,lets say for a month, he will qualify for the sub early access, right?
Passion is a mistake.Through passion you are filled with anger,through anger you are filled with hate throuch hate the beast awakens in you and through this awakening it consumes you through this consumption it rules you and the dark side is now part of you.

I just hope they don't do something stupid down the road like let Republic fly Empire ships it's already bad enough that they allow opposite faction to wear the other teams gear.>.>

I take it you weren't around pre-2.0, and definitely not pre-1.2. Consider yourself lucky.
