    I'll be picking it up next week. And I haven't read a darn thing about the game in any of the forums or anything and have never played a MMO game before.
    So I'm going in as a total newbie :)
    Lucky for me, my new work schedule. I only work 3 12-hour days. So i have 2 extra days off next week :)
    I still think a FanForce PLayer Association would be really cool

    Hello Michael. Jeff here. I was also looking into getting galaxies. But i may wait alittle bit. See how it really is. I want to be a wookie.

    About these groups you speak of. Like all MMORPGs i think you can join with anyone and make a group. Not sure how many. To go around exploring and killing and having an all around good time. Most likely be able to make guilds or clans of sorts. Which is just a bigger group of people who can stay in contact with each other and group with each other on a regular basis.

    Nice to meet you.

    hey Jeff, nice to meet ya.

    so, it's col to see a couple of you group members will be playing the game. i'm pretty excited about it myself. the idea of having "guilds and clans" is cool, so we could gang up on people. but what i was first talking about was the server groups. we have to make sure we hook up with the same server so we can all play in the same universe!! so pass the word around.

    Unless there are time zone specific servers there shouldn't be much of a difference. For those playing to post there server name so others can join them there is a good idea. Or if we have enough people interested , we can talk on the boards and pick one together.

    Hiya. I'm James and am now living in Rhode Island.

    I'd get Galaxies, but I already have no life... so no time to dedicate to it. :p

    Well, I've had the game for 19 hours and haven't played it yet. Due to evryone trying to sign on at once yesterday, very few (if any) were able to get into the game.
    Now, there's a message saying they've found another critical issue and they expect the servers to be ready around 11am. At least I've had time to read the manual and stategy guide ;)
    Here are the East Coast Servers:
    # Bloodfin
    # Chilastra
    # Eclipse
    # Gorath
    # Kauri
    # Lowca
    # Radiant
    # Starsider
    Anybody wanna just pick on to go with?

    hey dex, unfortunately i thought i was one of the smart people who pre-ordered the game months ago. and i didn't get the free over-night shipping that is now being offered. so, now i have to wait till probably monday or whenever next week, till my game comes. how foolish of me (stupid mortal). it really sucks because now i see tons of them in the stores. but anyways, we'll just have to keep a post open as to which servers we'll be on. doesn't matter to me which one, they're all the same, just a matter of how many people and who on each one. so, i'll see ya when i get my game. you, can give me any tips or short-cuts or any other type of info. i should be interested in. later.

    by the way, you got some cool pics at the SW weekends in disney. i so wish i could have gone. i'm hoping to go to disney next year and maybe hopefully they'll do the same type of event.......

    Well, don't kick yourself for not getting it on Thursday! Most people couldn't even get in until Friday. And there are still bugs that they need to iron out. SO don't feel bad =)
    I'm on server Kuari. Look me up under Tol Doneeta. If you hit CTRL+P there's a tab to look up people and you need to have a unique first name on each server.
    The game costs 50/75 depending on which version you get. Personally, the Collector's Edition is worth the extra 25 bucks!

    Don't know. They asked to stay away from "used" names. They have a name checker that checks out your name so I didn't even bother. Plus, others would see it as stupid (assuming they knew the name).
    And they say the game can be run on a 56k...

    oh i'm sure it can be played on a 56k but i've seen online games played where one of the guys was on a 56k and he was awfully lagged. i'm going to get high speed anyway, i may as well do it properly.

    that stinks about the name checker, but i have a whole list of star wars-type names my friend wrote for me once in exchange for some art, and i use it for character names in out RPG. i would pick from that anyway, i'm more inclined to play original characters. i would never be able to do a canon or EU character justice.

    Welcome! I'm new too.

    So how are those who have it enjoying the game? I want it so badly (and want Final Fantasy XI when that comes out too) but I am waiting until I can get dsl (not yet offered in SE Mass it seems) or cable. Plus I want to see how it is too. But it looks so much fun. I'd probably just grab some characters out of my fanfic and be them. Hopefully I can get it soon!

    Despite the bugs and downtime for daily patching, I'm still enjoying it greatly.
    I've never done an MMO before, so I can't say if this is Everquest in Space. But, it's Star Wars and I've been meeting some great people. For me, a lot of it has been about the social aspect of the game.

    That's the whole reason why I want to play--for the people. I have never played an online game before. Eventually when I am all teched out, I will try. But I think it would be a blast to play with other people as nutty, or nuttier than me.
