This...

BW has already announced that server firsts (etc...) will not be integrated into the SWTOR game because (a) the game's bread is voice-acted questgiver interaction, and (b) its butter is story-driven character progression. Conquest grazing rights aren't even on the radar. Flashpoints and operations are merely advanced (though integral) pieces to the game's storytelling puzzle and drive nothing by themselves.

Next thing you know someone who still isn't getting it will start a thread polling whether or not party leaders should be granted dictatorship to override a player's choice to interact with the quest cinematics.

Like it or not, this ain't WoW ... thank you BioWare!

No, everything was not downed. Who told you that?

Story and voice acting is fine and dandy but end game won't thrive on voice acting. Sorry. We already have the codex system, and if you read carefully there are *gasp* achievements listed. It wouldn't require much work to implement a system where others can see achievements, and add more into the game. Since, well, mmo's have a level cap and people do stuff there. We don't all just level alt after alt because the story is THAT awesome.

Lmao, this.

But to reply to the OP, it's hard to say. The real progression that will matter will be finishing the tier on nightmare, so whoever does that first wins. I sincerely doubt having a 7 day head start will affect the outcome too much. ie. A guild could come into the game on the 20th and end up beating the content before anyone who had EGA.

love people that talk out of their arse lol, this is BS, some bosses were so bugged it was impossible to down them.

OT: we will be going for server firsts etc but without achievments / reconition for it its pretty pointless, we will however be trying to make a name for ourselfs as one of the best on the server.

its hard to call anything a true world first until 100% of the population are playing the game, then you get competition in its true sense. Until that time i have no care at all for world firsts, although i would like to go for a few if my guild is in the position to do so.

It's very sad that these noobs don't know what e-sports actually is.

I have news for you, the end game content will make or break this game.

rerolling a new alt just to 'hear the story' 8 times might not be what a big chunk of players want to or care to do.

There better be newer flashpoints and operations or people will unsub once they've seen all the story they care to see.
