    Had a couple people interested in a SWTOR clubhouse but apparently the "techpowerup related discussion" wasn't a place to ask about clubhouses and my thread was closed before I could ask where an appropriate place to request one or gauge interest would be. I would've asked here but there was nothing but official clubhouse threads already here. My apologies if this is again the wrong place to discuss it... MODS: If I post in the wrong section, please direct me to the proper section, don't tell me to go do it if I'm asking questions about it.

    we could probably ask one of the mods to merge the threads but seeing as how the might overlap...but then again they might not. i can see it getting confusing having guilds incorporated into the club house...yeah just add the link at the top

    Been keeping my eye on this, but some things have disappointed me. We will see how it turns out, I maybe will be in. I havent checked in much on this recently and I am really surprised to see Consulars and Inquisitors also labeled as Melee Burst DPS, interesting.

    They're very much a burst melee class based around light sabers. Each class will also have "advanced classes" that you choose at level 10.

    Advanced classes are full class systems within themselves, containing three respecialisable talent trees. Each advanced class can perform multiple roles at once.

    Jedi Consular for instance has Shadow and Sage to choose. Shadow focuses on double bladed sabers, stealth, and burst melee dps. Sage on the other hand focuses more on single sabers, telekinesis, healing, ranged control, etc. It's easy to see how similar the classes are but how different they are as well.

    There's currently a lot of discussion centered around whether or not we should be able to choose to switch AC's or not later on down the road. I personally don't really care either way because with the talent trees in each AC you'll be able to play each one several different ways.

    I'm in! :D I want my Inquisitor! xD

    I also thought it was 'interesting' to see the consular and inquisitor as melee. :)
    What really got me was how so many classes have the ability to heal. Bounty Hunter? Trooper? LMAO XD They know what they are doing though. The developers know the lore a lot more than we do so..

    Thanks! :)

    There's really pages and pages of information on pvp, crafting, flash points, and more and a books worth that isn't publicly released yet that can't go up. I'm wading through it on and off when I get bored trying to decide what's big-picture and important enough to put in the summary.

    It'd be like going through the information about wow and trying to write down just the important stuff :p

    Yeah there's a 99% chance that your account would be banned and you'd have to assume a phony name and email address just to be able to play it when it comes out. The game is much different now than it was in December so let people watch the videos I linked up at the top to get a taste of the graphics :p

    Only adding people that say "add me" or "count me in" and not people who express excitement to play the game since there are millions of people excited about playing it and only a handful who are all "hellz yeah tpu clubhouse!" lol.

    Graphics Diddn't really look Different to me on those Vids, But that's just me.

    I did notice they made the skill bar bigger which is good, I wouldn't even dream of posting those pictures i got any where. Most of the screen shots's i took where for Bug Reporting anyway.
    One thing i loved was the PVP, Best thing in the game i thought.

    Not 100% Sure if i will Join it yet, Depends on what the game turns out like once it's Finished. But would like to keep up to date with news Etc
