Where was this video two months ago? No one needs it now.
And if someone wants to play this, I'm sure they already are playing.

Progressing down the light or dark path of the force will not ultimately determine your destiny in the game.

It will allow you to use certain light/dark side gear at some point, but this video makes it out like people should really think before choosing a light or dark option, and that isn't the case.

Maybe some NPC admonishes you for doing something, but so what? Your destiny is ultimately determined by the class that you play and/or the choices that you make at any given time.
The class story doesn't really change for light or dark characters, it just has some different dialogue.

Just play, people. Light and dark don't matter that much, and if you are ultimately playing a darker character, the dark points will come, and if you are lighter, then you will move towards the light.
Those points from the other faction do not amount to anything in the long run, and most certainly do not determine your destiny*.

If you want to be light then be light, sure, or the same for dark, but no one should ever feel bound by those choices, and I encourage everyone to shut that option off in preferences and just let things happen.

As long as we remember, it's never really gone.

Can you put in some vids for PvP please, espescially for huttball, so many issues with people not knowing how to pass the ball, and having to explain to them mid match that they have to go to the abilities panel and put the "pass ball" action on the action bars and so on.

Would have been great 2 months ago though.

I am curious as to why the "register an account" video is at the bottom and not at the top and released with this video since you need to do that first before you can even get into the game...

Social coordinating and updating the new player guides is nice and all, but it would be vastly more informative and useful if it was in the proper order.

-Create Account
-Server select and character creation
-Movement, maps, bindpoints, taxis.
-UI (onscreen display) explanation (such as skill bar, skill useage, cooldown, mini map, quest tracker, etc).
-Finally socialize.

Might want to get on that account creation video, people kinda need to do that before they can choose servers and create characters. Unless you're planning a bait'n'switch campaign with this series of videos by showing them the game, get them to buy, and then come back to figure out how to set up an account. In that case, sure, leave it the way it is.

That would be nice, but it'd be nicer if the huttball loading screen actually showed you that instead. Simple replacement of one loading screen with a better and more informative one would be way more effective in the long run. We need more explanations ingame rather than checking youtube all the time, and where better than on the loading screen itself when you're loading into the warzone to explain the different aspects and mechanics.

"Thanks for watching, and may the Force be with you."

Hehe, all SWTOR videos need to end with that line.
