What servers are everybody on? I haven't gotten my early access yet and probably won't until either Friday or Monday since I only pre-ordered on this past Monday (I took my time and did my research, watched review videos and game play, heard from people on their experiences, etc, before buying it- I've been sorely disappointed by the last couple MMOs I played so I wanted to be sure).

I do have to say that this staggered early start thing is really kind of stupid. Yes, reward the folks who preordered in July, but don't penalize those of us who wanted to do our due diligence before hooking the game up. Maybe give the July people two extra days, then get everyone else in. Or at the very least, give us an idea of when we can jump in, rather than just having us watch the grass grow.

Well, I'm up to level 18 on my Bounty Hunter Merc on The Shadowlands, and I've basically caught up to the point I was at with my weekend testing Jedi Shadow.

I like the space combat, such as it is. I plan on running a crazy amount of those missions until I'm sick of them, maybe go back to the 2nd planet and nail some heroic quests and gather datacrons, and finally move onto Balmorra or whatever the next planet is.

How are others progressing?

Well, I've officially joined for-realz. So if you see a pink Twi'lek Sith Bitch, remember, she's not just a man, she's Shadowman.

I am so impressed by this game. The interaction with quest givers slows the game down, but it also draws you into the story in a way that hasn't been seen in any MMO before. When I played WoW, it was skim the text,look and see what was required, and go grind it. This is completely different and it's fantastic. I can't stick to one character at this point...I have five characters at this point, but only one has reached the specialization level (Level 16 Sith Marauder). I have a level 10 Republic trooper, a lvl 8 Jedi Knight, a level 8 Bounty Hunter, and a level 5 Sith Inquisitor. In each case, I get sucked into the individual storyline. I'm also impressed with the "Story Instance" areas...it makes you feel like you are the only one doing the storyline, as if you were the star of the show.

I also hae signed up long term and look forward to seeing what is to come.

My Sith Sorcerer (Twi'lek female) and my Jedi Shadow (Miraluka female) both have theirs. Also three other characters (Jedi Knight, Bounty Hunter, and a Smuggler) who I haven't been giving much attention to. Probably going to focus on them next.

And yeah, space combat is swank right out of the box. Most likely it gets better.

Lieutenant Pootis reporting. I must be the odd man out, because I rolled a Republic Trooper/Commando.

Why Commando? I wanted a BFG.

Anyways, I'm on a server called The Constant and about level 14. Absolutely love the game so far.

Nope, I rolled one as well. I rolled one of everything, actually. Haven't played him much, though, but I did like how he makes things explode.

This is basically a picture of what is now more-or-less my main as well as my full list of characters and also my server. But do me a favor, I'm having fun with keeping my gender ambiguous, try not to wreck that for me.

Can do.

I rolled a total of four characters on two diferent servers. The Constant has the Trooper/Commando and a Jedi Knight/Sentinel. The other server, Sword of Ajunta Pal, has an Imperial Agent/Sniper and a Sith Warrior/Maruader. The Trooper and Sith Warrior share a name because "Darth Pootis" sounds hysterical.
