Darkside in real life, no reason to do it in games.
Seems their focus is good. Age of Conan did everything wrong, with content missing
from levels 40-50. It's also good to hear that both sides get their info about Revan. If they'd made it LS only,the Republic players would probably outnumber the DS players 10:1. Question though...I'm going to play Empire, but can you be 'grey-Sith' where you are playing a 'good' Sith only killing when there's no other option? I'd hate to be forced to play a cliché Sith.
You'd probably want to rethink that...in my experience, 70% of the players will
play a Jedi. You'll be playing next to (cliché) people of <12 years who simply play the game because they can wield a shiny saber and because they like the movies, players who loved the Force Unleashed and got stuck on Kotor puzzles. They will ruin your game experience because they are focussed on their own story and gaming experience. IE: Playing a wrong armor and weapons equiped simply because they think it looks cool, instead of playing it in a social way, the way it's meant too. This has been the problem in Warcraft too. Because of WC3 adn the LOTR movies, the 'good' side outnumbers the 'evil' side vastly on most servers. Everyone wants to be a Legolas, Gimli or Aragorn. Not an Orc or Tauren..
It also means the 'evil' sides is MUCH better in PvP, because they'll face (relatively) more n00b teams.
My pre-order for the special edition failed.
Going to pre-order the 'normal' edition this week. Still looking for a Guild though, since I probably can't join the US servers. Maybe I'll check with some RL friends if they will be playing too.
