This had been one of the worst days in EVE Online I had ever had. I had done a couple of missions in the morning, purely to gain some money and standing with some agents. Pretty regular work with my Cruiser, standard encounters, nothing unusual going wrong or anything. I decided it was time to get to Low Sec Space, getting some more income that I’ve desperately been needing as of late. Boy, was that the wrong move.

I’ve played a lot of The Old Republic since I first got my early access. I’ve managed to reach level 35 and am now part-way through Chapter 2 of the Sith Warrior storyline. I’ve been granted the title of Sith Lord, have my own starship and 5 different companions. I’ve loved every minute  of it, and it’s been great really digging into an MMO like this again. Though I did enjoy my time with EVE and APB (and I will continue to play this, to some capacity) I just haven’t been sunk in to this extent since World of Warcraft. I’ve done lots of bonus missions, daily Space Combat missions and generally as much of the side planet quests as I want to. I’ve still got a lot that I’ve not experienced on certain planets (I’ve not managed to find many Holocrons or Datacrons as of yet..) but I can’t wait to go back and explore these when I decide to give the story a break.

Though that is becoming increasingly hard to do, as this is one of the best story lines in a game I’ve experienced in a long time, and it’s in an MMO.

WARNING: Here be Spoilers! I talk about events in the Sith Warrior Storyline.

Although I didn’t spend as much time as I would have liked during the weekend Beta event that Bioware ran for Star Wars: The Old Republic, I did manage to have an extremely good time playing what I did. This is just a blog to round-up my experiences during that time and generally give across my impressions on what I think, is the most fun I’ve had in an MMO for a very long time.

Update 18/12/2011: After playing the full retail version of the game for a couple of days now, I’m actually loving the Sith Juggernaut class and I am right now, focusing solely on that character. I have no others at the moment and for the time being, I’m keeping it that way. I can see myself, in the future, trying out the other classes as well, but my main will be my Juggernaut. I’m already level 21 and having a blast, so you can look forward to hearing more about my exploits in The Old Republic soon enough.

Earlier in the year, I bought EVE Online on Steam, after finally letting myself try out the free trial. After a couple of days I knew that this was something I wanted to get into. I bought it on Steam and extended my trial play time with the free 30 days that was rewarded with my new purchase. This wasn’t the very first time I had played, as I had tried it out many years ago. Little did I know just how much I’d enjoy this game, as much as it does resemble “spreadsheets in space.”
