Trying to find the balance between guild wars 2 and the old republic.

Bought Guild Wars 2 last week and it just made me realise how downright horrible Bioware is with level design.

Constantly recycling the same few assets over and over while every inch of the guild wars 2 world seems to have been made with attention to detail, many great little locations to explore and be amazed by. Exploring is fun here.

While in TOR, you soon realise they have the same space port, the same orbital station, the same interiours, etc all over the galaxy. First thing you see when setting foot on a new planet is the exact same thing you saw on every other planet before it. that damn overused orbital station followed by the overused spaceport.

The Mandalorian Wars were a series of massacres that masked another war, a war of conversion. Culminating in a final atrocity that no Jedi could walk away from… save one.

I spent around three weeks away from the game recently when I got back into another game, and discovered a new one. But they couldn't hold me for too long and now I'm back.

I will agree for exploration GW2 beats the hell out of SWTOR. In other ways SWTOR is superior such as the storytelling - course I am a Star Wars fanatic so that doesn't hurt them but I still think GW2s story-telling isn't as good in the main class quests. The questing experience is very different as is the PvP and endgame from what little of GW2 I did -- no reason to not enjoy both.


I still regularly play. I don't play necessarily every day but that's cause I can't - I do at least log-in for some GTNing every day and craft stuff for alts and such. I have my next 5 alts already planned, leveling two right now -- Sniper, 2nd Jedi Knight (Sent and DS this time), Assassin (Light this time, my Sorc is evil evil), 2nd Trooper (LS this time), and Juggernaut. (much heavier dark this time, last was honor-bound light leaning).

And by planned I mean many have their mods and such in their cargo bay waiting, and outfits planned for them and some of their companions already in addition to just knowing what kind of character/personality they have.

Spot on. I love exploring in GW2...I love taking my Ranger (lvl 80) into caves I've never been in. So far, in a month and half, I've explored nearly 70% of the map. I wish SWTOR had something similar. Then again, NCSoft is well known for their adventure setting in their games for individuals to strike out on their own.

Heh. I play every day and our guild is growing once again. So... I can't tell you how many but I'll go with "a bunch".

Maybe it depends on your server too though. On Harbinger we have multiple instances on most planets and the fleet Pops per instnace is always near or above 100.
