    I am on Kissai Dark Side (PVE) but I doubt that server will be online for the stress test. Other tests involved a fresh batch of server which were only used during the test.
    2 weeks ago the stress test meant no one could login really... heres hoping it works this weekend although I am general beta

    Before you get too excited, check your acceptance EMail. It tells you when you can log in, I am Sat 10pm.

    How's it looking? Is The Old Republic the WoW beater 'they' claim it is or is it more of the same?

    It comes to something when that comment needs sarcasm tags...

    Really good beta for me, tested out all of the Republic classes and may now switch my original plans.

    Ran smooth and apart from the Friday night logging in nightmare it was really good. Now to wait another three weeks for it to launch, glad I pre-ordered ages ago.

    Ooooh have I got an opinion on this!

    POSITIVES:
    + Full voice acting.
    + Star Wars theme!
    + Cover system is interesting.
    + Death of the MMORPG holy trinity of tank/healer/DPS.

    NEGATIVES:
    - Classes are mirrored so technically only 4 exist with subtle changes between factions.
    - Character maker is limited given how many races are in Star Wars
    - The entire things smacks of WoW with a space skin on it. I felt like I was playing a WoW alt in a different setting.
    - Moral choices aren't moral at all and merely another form of currency.
    - The game utterly failed to engage me during the starter area. This shouldn't be the case for a game which is so anticipated.
    - Story zones are merely marketing talk for WoW's phasing technology.

    It was so bad I actually had more fun playing Vanguard again instead of the SWTOR beta Sunday evening and that is a failed MMO! This one will be a lot of split opinions but I don't think anyone with a WoW account can justify spending 4 quid for a game that makes no shame in it's attempts to copy and compete. There isn't really anything new or groundbreaking in it.

    Unfortunately it's only a weekend Beta so finished today (may have a few more hours due to timezones)

    It should finish at 6am Tuesday morning due to the timezones...

    Really enjoyed it myself - even though there were a few bugs etc still in the client...

    For me it comes down to what you are looking for. I love WoW, have done for years, but where it lets me down is the setting... I much prefer scifi (and if I'm really picky, post apoc, world gone to hell scifi). So if Bioware can give me WoW with a scifi "skin" then I'm in!

    Doesnt work on invites sadly but if you register for the beta you should get in the next weekend test.

    For all those weekend testers, I have heard rumours of another weekend test around the 9th.
