As with most MMO's, players often fore-go immersion for the sake of funny. So I thought it'd be funny to share a list of some of the funnier guild names that I've come across while playing Star Wars: The Old Republic. As I come across new ones I'll be updating this list, and if you see any post the name(s) in a comment (with the server you saw it on) and they'll be added.
Ever play a game, like Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) on a multiple monitor setup, and accidentally click your mouse JUST past the edge of the screen by accident, causing the game to completely minimize? If you do this while playing SWTOR, it'll minimize to your taskbar, which you'll have to click on, which brings up a loading screen and then when it's done loading finally shows the game screen that you were on when you accidentally clicked off of it.
So I stumbled upon a very useful little exploit while playing SWTOR that will let you get a quick trip back to your fleet ship (i.e. the Vaiken Spacedock if you're Imperial) without using your Emergency Fleet Pass or having to burn up your other methods of travel that have cooldowns on them, or manually make the trip, no matter what planet you're on or where you happen to be. Obviously this is also really handy if those are all already on cooldown and you'd be stuck having to hoof it on foot
Just follow these steps
Here's a question that I see all the time in SWTOR: "Where are the screenshots stored?"

Let's share our toon builds here, for anyone interested in seeing them.
Here's my current build at level 34 (for my Sith Inquisitor Assassin)
Have you been invited to join a group / party in SWTOR (Star Wars: The Old Republic) and been unable to join because you get the message:
Group Invite Attempt
... is trying to invite you to their group, but you cannot join because you have conflicting group phases with other members of this group. Reset your local phases
Most likely this is because you've already been inside of a flashpoint / instance before you're attempting to join a group with people who have also been in the same flashpoint separately.
Thought I'd record a little gameplay footage and screenshots during my beta testing last weekend, which is the final beta testing period before it's official December 20th public launch. I was playing as a Bounty Hunter during this test period. This video includes:
We've been hearing debates about whether or not Drupal, (the website CMS software for those not in the know) can scale large enough to successfully handle websites that receive an enormous amount of visitor traffic. Apparently SWTOR; the website of the up and coming huge MMORPG thinks so, have a look:
According to MMORPG1 after a recent poll of online gamers, WoW's stock value was lowered due to declining subscriptions, placing much of the blame on the imminent release (Dec. 20th 2011) of Star Wars: The Old Republic.
900,000-1.6million player drop due to the the imminent launch of Star Wars: The Old Republic alone
Being a longtime player of WoW this sort of makes me sad to see. It's still an excellent game in my opinion. What do you all think of this?
