Love it!
I too have had a challenge arranging my abilities into an effective rotation.
I raid with a group all the way to TFB hard mode and got kicked when we couldn't beat the damn droid boss.
Younger gamers just don't get that the learning curve can be steeper for older, more casual gamers. And old hands don't always work well as we'd like them to.
If you're on Jedi Covenant, let me know, I would love to meet "Cheesenuts".

Great idea Saiyanbob, the topics are well broken down and coherent.

I recently trained a group of people with varying degrees and types of disabilities to play MMOs as part of academic research into accessibility; something like this would have helped provide very useful pointers! Hopefully people will find your guides useful when learning the game or teaching others.

Keep up the good work!

I am 58, so I have empathy for Cheeznuts.
I'm not that much a newb, but....SWTOR is my second MMO (EQ2 first) and I have yet to reach max level, so yeah, I'm still a newb in many ways.
What I find challenging in groups is my reaction time. I have (imho) a good sense of teamwork, and the roles each play. I tank, and there are times in fights where I have a hard time following the battle. I keep aggro on main mob, but want to keep eye on healer. Where is he and what mobs are attacking him? TABbing doesn't help and when I get oriented too much time has passed.
Anyways...love the blogs and posts. Keep them going for your elders sake!

This is great. I'm sure it will help other new players, as well as help us veterans keep things in perspective. Subscribing!
