The Definitive Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta Review Classes (Part 5)

by Hengist on 12-03-2011 at 07:47 PM
Sith Inquisitor:



My personal experience is that the Sith Inquisitor offered a fairly enjoyable story in Act One. However feedback on the forums indicates that the highlights of the story are all in Act One, as Acts Two and Three fall short. As the Inquisitor was a class on my agenda to play, I cut it semi-short, and this is a class that

The Definitive Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta Review of Classes (Part 4)

by Hengist on 12-03-2011 at 07:38 PM
Ever hear Lemmy croon “I Aint No Nice Guy”? Well, for a little bit I thought I wasn’t a very nice guy withholding the last part of my promised Beta Review for The Old Republic but then I realized that nobody was actually reading these, and I stopped feeling bad, and just got it done. Hope you enjoy the final fruits of my Old Republic pre-launch blogs.

I know we have more misguided (read: not quite bright) people who are interested in playing as Republic around Aureus Knights, (Actually

The Definitive Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta Review (Part 3)

UI and Miscellaneous:

The User Interface has to be one of the most important functions for a MMO, simply because it is your gateway to the entire game, and if it doesn’t work for you, the MMO can’t deliver. In a lot of ways I think Bioware has missed the mark with its UI. It is functional, simple and clean, but what kills it for so many people is the inability to do much to customize it.

We are in a day and age where addons and mod’s are a staple of many other MMO’s,

The Definitive Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta Review (Part 2)

Gameplay:

Combat:

We don’t see some radical design changes that involve active blocking or dodging, what we see is a very familiar mechanic that has been around since nearly the dawn of MMO’s. While Bioware chooses to not push the envelope in this area, I think they are banking on people feeling comfortable with what they offer, and feeling comfortable very quickly.

Animations are smooth and fluid, and each class looks distinct, even if the factions

The Definitive Star Wars: The Old Republic Beta Review (Part 1)

by Hengist on 11-27-2011 at 03:33 PM
I’ve really been on hiatus for too long with this blog, but in my defense not too long after the last edition, I received an e-mail from Bioware with an invitation of the sort where you were allowed to say “there is a beta, and I am participating in the beta” and not much more. With that in mind, I felt putting my blog on hiatus was a good thing, because I did not want to spill anything that I knew as a result of beta and that was not public knowledge. So here we are, just a few short weeks until

Awards Showcase - 6 Awards
Icon Image Description



Name: TOR Chapter Officer
This award is given as a special thank you to the awesome volunteers who stepped up as Chapter Officers in TOR.

So thank you for an awesome job!

Name: Rift Beta Explorer
Award given to any member or applicant that wore the Aureus Knights guild tag in any Rift beta
Issue time: 02-21-2011 03:40 AM
Issue reason: Thanks for the fantastic Rift Beta memories!



Name: The Dark Summer of 2010
I hope the Spring/Summer of 2010 is one we will soon forget. While the guild had some success in World of Warcraft by and large the Knights found themselves spread across multiple games most of them lasting only a few weeks at a time as it just seemed that the gaming gods refused to give us something to play.

Many of our guild friends have been absent in past months as there just hasn't been anything to play. Some Knights however stayed true and did whatever they could to keep in touch by the forums or in whatever game managed to hold our attention in a given week.

This award is for those loyal Knights who toughed out the Spring and Summer of 2010. There is a lot of good stuff on the horizon (Final Fantasy XIV and Star Wars: The Old Republic) but these members were around for one of the bleakest periods in MMO gamer memory!

Name: Vanguard Veteran
An award given to the original Aureus Knights in Vanguard. This group of people helped form AKS's first large presence in an MMO and we became known as a top class guild; this group has a lot to be proud of.

Name: Officer Above and Beyond
Given to an officer who has gone above and beyond for the guild. This award is given to an officer who has gone above and beyond dedicating time and effort to make this guild a great place.
Issue time: 08-23-2008 07:33 PM
Issue reason: Hengist, Xandawn and Zarman went above and beyond for AKS in Vanguard. Most of the founder officers (the only officers we had in place at launch) burned out on the game pretty fast; the problems with the game were apparent and most of us had been in beta since pretty early on. Other guilds might have fallen apart at that point but thanks to the strong leadership of these guys AKS became stronger becoming a beacon of light and standard bearer for the Hillsbury community right until the server and eventual alliance merge.

On behalf of the Founders and Officers of AKS I wish Hengist, Xandawn and Zarman a huge congratulations and say to them a huge thank you for helping make AKS what it is today.
