I just wanted to say, i played Everquest 2 when it came out in...what 2004? They had a TON of graphic options. And guess what, they not only had Low, Medium, High....but even EXTREME! And guess what...take a guess.

NO ONE back then could run EQ2 on Extreme Graphics with full shadows on! NO ONE! Did that stop them from having those incredible detail textures and graphics then? NO! Did that destroy the game and backlash itself because people could not run it?! NO!

All it did is gave people something too look forward too....man one day, ill have a pc that can run those graphics...oh man its going to be sooooo sweet! (and for High on TOR, people can run it fine!)

Cmon BIOWARE! You are showing laziness and complete fear in your game, loosen up already, you already put in enough limits in character creation...UI...Guild...graphics...etc...

BTW....EQ2 textures, a game from 04....looks ALOT better then SWTOR!

I wish I had a dollar for every time someone "contacted the BBB" over an MMORPG launch.

See today's press pack at mmorpg.com for an example.
This. But you know they'll never own up and comment on that.

This

I mean seriously, what the ****. I built and purchased 2x 1600$ cpu's for the wifey and I when I saw the graphics at PAX and during beta, watching all the high rez trailers with the trooper's amazing reflective visor. I ASKED Bioware reps during Pax East what was running in their machines and they all said the game ran smooth on their GeForce 580's... the graphics looked awesome!

Now my game runs at 110 FPS with black, matte, horrible visors. What the ****? Then the cutscenes take off and my armor is shiny, my visor is reflective, I look beastly... back to gameplay and I look like I'm wearing a cardboard helmet with a black plastic visor you can't even see through.

Get your **** together Bioware, this is seriously pissing me off. It's bad enough I have to watch grass literally grow as I run through a field, at least give me high rez textures and let me worry about running it at a stable 60+ FPS.


P.s: What's with the LEGO shadows?

Are you saying that simply because no one actually does it? Or do you believe that this is not a big enough issue to make that kind of threat? Just curious, I don't especially care I just want to know where that comment came from.

That's it! We are actually playing LEGO Star Wars The Old Republic!
Anyone, check retail game box. There must be small red logo to the left of "Star Wars".
