SWTOR: Space Combat or how do I fly this thing?
Yup, Mako and I are doing a pre-flight check before trying to complete a space mission again. I need all the help I can get so I want to make sure the ship is in tip-top condition.
I’m going to try to post this under the radar. Maybe I won’t tweet about it. I read a post by Gladly at The Ready Check about how SWTOR has affected her WoW raiding. I felt really bad about it. She’s not the only one feeling the effects of SWTOR, it seems many guilds have been touched by the SWTOR flu.
Someone was recruiting in Tatooine the other day and they gave me the address of their guild’s application form. I was thinking about it, but when I read the apps of people applying it put me off. Almost everyone seemed to think saying something negative about WoW was required. What’s up with that? I’m a WoW player too; I don’t want to be in a guild of WoW haters.
In my case absolutely no WoW raids have been affected by my vacation in SWTOR. No raiders died in the making of this post. I’m not even really gone from WoW, never happen unless Blizzard locks me out. I am not a butterfly who flaps her wings and causes a butterfly effect across the face of Azeroth. So if you are causing a WoW butterfly effect, shoo … go on … get back to your raid.
I really just wanted to let you know I put up a link on the SWTOR resources page about space combat. I was having a lot of trouble with space missions and this helped a lot. First, I thought I was in control of the ship. I kept trying to wrestle control of my path from the ship. You have no control, stop trying to turn around. You can’t. And thank you so much Star Wars: The Old Republic, all that time I thought I was firing my missiles I was really just shooting measly bullets at them.
Just one more thing, how do you say SWTOR when speaking? Someone pointed out that if you sound it out you get sweator, yeah, I’m not sure whether I like that. Maybe I’ll just drop the SW and refer to it in conversation as TOR. I’ll have to alert my son-in-law as he’s the only one I’d be likely to be conversating with about TOR.
Anyway, if you have something better than TOR, let me know. We need to all vote on this or something.
