More developed UI allowing for better (IMO) interface options that WoW has yet to do.

Uh, what? In WoW you can make your own UI. In SWTOR you're stuck with the generic vanilla-wow style UI.

You mean the UI you can make that pops up errors and/or breaks after every patch? The same mods that slow down your PC and make the game run like crap some times? I can live without them. We did in EQ, FFXI, and every other game before WoW. As long as everyone is on the same level you don't need them.

But not everyone is on the same lvl and not everyone has the same computer. So if they run like crap or slow yours down may not be the case for everyone else. If you dont like to take the 15 minutes to install the new updates for the mods then yes, you will have issues with them. It is not like there is a patch every week where you have to update Mods. DBM is the main one that gets updated throughout current content.

I personally see no problem with the standard UI. I have my addons that enhance gameplay but the UI that comes with the game is more than adequate. However, I saw last night where TOR had differences with its standard UI that to me looked more thought out than WoW. One of the most notable was that HUD map. If you pull up the map (m key) and move, your map turns into a hud so you can see where you are headed as well as have the map still in front of you. Those kind of little tweaks is what I was refering to in my initial statement.

Perfect example of something a WoW addon can provide you if you wish.

If you don't want addons, nothing is wrong with the default UI. But Beaner calling players "noobs" for using addons and claiming they all slow down your computer and cause errors is silly.

It's Beta.

Combat logs and UI enhancements will come.

Also, I do not hate WoW. It was a good game, but for me it was time to move on. SWTOR is the game I will move onto.

Also, combat logs, and damage meters are essential for any sort of hard mode progress which this game claims it will have. I expect a combat log to be in at launch or shortly after. While it's always fun to hump meters and be a douche, people will be douches without meters. However, for the people the play the game to raid, min/max, and want to figure out how and why they died.... this will be essential.

EDIT: I played the f2P lotro for a month or two actually. Thier UI was quick slick. No addons, but everything was movable and scaleable. Tghis system would work as well.

Everyone is old school if you ask or confront them online here. Reality is quite another story as is reading comprehension.....I'll just leave it at that....

Yeah, that wasn't directed at you at all Slydermv.

It's the people that are flooding in bashing WoW.

Again, I'm sure there are things SWTOR will do better than WoW - as they should... They've had 8 years to copy and improve a product...

Oh yeah... no worries. I just wanted to point out that fact that I wasn't a wow sux drooling douche.

But yeah, I could really care less if it does better or worse. A stable player base and frequent updates are all I need. Compitition would make both games better actually.

Would you like it if I retyped what I said since reading comprehension is difficult?
"We did in EQ, FFXI, and every other game before WoW. As long as everyone is on the same level you don't need them."

Let's put that in kindergarten terms to help some people out. If the game doesn't allow mods your fine without mods. I'm sure the trolling was more fun by taking it out of context though. I'm glad it was phrased in a way that the lower reading comprehension people didn't understand it. It's very amusing. Where's Arch to jump on this?!?!!?

Usually vanilla is a pretty reputable definition of old school. That being said, I know plenty of bad vanilla players that are still around.

Oh? So if WoW didn't allow addons, it'd mean it's a perfect game?

You jumped on the WoW koolaid when I was talking about MMORPG's in general from the beginning of time.

FYI: That's not 'old school' unless the context is on WoW alone which it wasn't. Hit the restroom and get that egg off your face.

I'll play - Lets compare ePeens.

Do you know the game Tribes? It still on my HD, and I play it regularly. Look it up, see what kind of history it has as online multiplayer game.

Marathon... Quake, Heros of Might and Magic, Duke Nukem I could go on forever... And we haven't even touched down on Atari...

This is a joke. We all know the only way people are respected on this forum is based on the information they provide (and unfortunately for me, HOW they provide it).

I'm a dick, but I know my stuff. You sir, do not.

Not sure what single player standalone video games have to do with online rpg's but it's amusing. Please continue. I'm in awe of your thought process. Is there any rolling text things in there for you?

Hah, I knew I liked you. You play a rogue and know your #$& too.

I've been following a supposed F2P new release of Tribes. I really hope they grasped the skiing/MA and MD's! (Mine discs).

I guess this is why your called Snuffbox? Is that what you really think? I'm sure SWTOR will pull some WoW people but hardly that. We do love the jokes of anonymous online forums for non-stop entertainment though. No place else on Earth for free is as good.
