New Players Guide

Just Yesteryear, our friendly Bioware writers released a New Players ‘Guide’ to straighten out the clinically retarded players that aspire to have a crack at SWTOR.

Rather than contribute a useful and well though out guide, helping new players to get past their first few missions, what we have landed with is a thinly veiled advertisement, saying nothing that should not appear immediately obvious upon new players entering the game and watching the introduction cinematic.

Apparently there are two factions, the Sith Empire and the Galactic Republic. Really??? I could see that remaining a mystery for some time had I not been so thoroughly educated.

Another interesting thing mentioned by the Guide is Role Playing. Now this is truly only mentioned by the guide, as it appears as one of the titles. The preceding paragraph has absolutely nothing to do with Roleplaying, the ever present scourge of serious gamers, so hopefully this is a subtle hint from Bioware that such Care Bears will not be welcome among the players of The Old Republic. If only.

So with the beginning quest and instructional system of the game being the only feature so far to be aggressively panned, it is surprising that the writers should come out with such an ass-backwards guide, but perhaps this was to be expected. With all severs being brought down over theĀ  next few days in order to apply updates to the beginner tutorials, hopefully we will see the woeful experience that clueless players have been subjected to so far be gone for good. May the force be with them in their blind wanderings of the game world.
