Can SWTOR Help You Land a Job?

Posted by on Jul 23, 2014 in discussion | 0 comments

Here’s an interesting topic to ponder. It’s one that I was discussing with some fellow gamer friends just a week or so ago. We were talking about how we are leadership members within our gaming community and how this experience translates to the “real world” and also how our real life experience helps us be better leaders in the games we play. It’s so common in gamers today but it’s not always a topic we hear people talk about. So leads us to another question: Can SWTOR help you land a job? We’ve heard of people putting World of Warcraft on their resumes. We’re not certain how that worked out for them but with how mainstream WoW has become, it’s not a surprise if it helped a bit if they were able to put the game-work connection in it. So why can’t SWTOR experience be the same? We believe it can! Here are some ways that your gaming experience might help you with a job: Dress for Success- Gear makes a difference in SWTOR, like...

It isn’t very often that a moment in a video game catches us off guard again, makes us appreciate the true value of our game experiences and makes us want to tell others about the experience. But when they do happen, they usually remain in our memories for awhile. Such is the case with Massively writer Jef Reahard when he played with a “real Jedi” named Nayelii

Should SWTOR Be More Like WoW?

Posted by on Jul 17, 2014 in discussion, SWTOR, world of warcraft | 0 comments

Should SWTOR be more like WoW? If you ask the wrong person this question, you’re likely to get your head taken off. Seriously, some SWTOR fans are very anti-WoW. That being said, World of Warcraft has made it as long as it has in the industry because it is, in fact, doing something right. So maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to bash on the game. Are there things about World of Warcraft that SWTOR could use to improve? Possibly. While there are already similarities between SWTOR and WoW, it’s also very important to remember that SWTOR is SWTOR and WoW is WoW. If you want more WoW gameplay in SWTOR, then maybe you just need to go play WoW. That being said, there are some good points to be made about the success of WoW and how it could help Star Wars: The old Republic. Here are some things WoW allows that SWTOR has not yet adjusted to: Not being able to need on stuff you can’t actually use. This makes it too easy for ninjas to steal loot. Improved talent trees- Blizzard has...

Posted by on Jun 12, 2014 in discussion, mmorpg | 0 comments

SWTOR is a game that has sprung some controversial ideas over the years. It is a game that many called a failure but that actually has succeeded in many ways. For many reasons, there are things that other MMOs can learn from SWTOR and the game history so far. Other MMOs can learn from both the successes and the failures of SWTOR. In some ways, this game has paved the path for those that will come after, just like games before opened doors for SWTOR to be what it is today.   So let’s take a look at some of the ideas that other MMOs can take from SWTOR.   One very big point is the voice acting. The type of voice acting SWTOR had was unique. Never before has it been done in this way in a video game. All the live voice acting adds a different element and level of engagement to the game that is just not found in other games.   Engaging plot is another big selling point. There were some unique points about the plot in SWTOR. For example, each class has a different storyline....

Are Double XP Weekends Helpful to SWTOR Community?

Posted by on Apr 20, 2014 in discussion, leveling, News, SWTOR | 0 comments

So we talk about SWTOR Double XP weekends a lot here, for obvious reasons. But let’s consider for a moment if they are not really as good for the community as they may seem. Just for the sake of discussion, let’s look at it from another perspective. What happens during a double XP weekend? Generally, more players flock back to the game who never got around to leveling up alts. Some might bring their friends as well. Or you might even get some brand new players to the game who just want to take advantage of the opportunity to level up fast. Double XP from the event combined with any other Cartel Market boosters or guild bonuses and you can get level 20 before leaving the planet you’re on. You could get to max level in one solid weekend of playing, even if you just created the character. So this is a good thing, right? Well, it might be. For those who have already seen the content and storyline, boosting another toon through quickly means you’re not really missing anything. You’ve seen...
