    I have a copy of that.

    You will find that the ops are all significantly less challenging than raids in World of Warcraft. Most of them can be one-shot in story mode from the group finder. I'd say the RotHC ops are better than the vanilla ops. But endgame is still just ops, PvP, alts.

    I don't like either company at all. But, I would choose whichever offers me an uncapped business account at the lowest price. The business accounts are usually a lot more.

    It doesn't take much. One hour of Blu-ray quality HD content is 25GB. This is why I ultimately believe the government will have to look into this data cap BS; the providers want to advertise "fast enough to stream HD movies" but cap you if you try.

    I have no idea. Have you checked your ISP to see if they have a tool you can use to see? Mine has a page on their site that shows all usage.

    I myself use around 200GB+ a month because I stream a lot of HD movies and TV shows, listen to all my music online, and download a lot of games from the various game services. But, I realize I'm an edge case.

    It's a famous quote, not a foreign language conversation.

    Regarding your earlier question, most analysts seem to feel that SWTOR experienced a severe contraction of its initial playerbase because it did not launch with a free to play model. The subscription-only model put it into more direct competition with World of Warcraft, which had a more polished interface and a great deal more endgame content. Personally, I cancelled my subscription shortly after hitting 50. As one of the first dozen or so 50s on my server, there wasn't a lot to do back then.

    Still, I've read that SWTOR remains second only to WoW in western subscription numbers.

    I did buy the expansion. There isn't a whole lot of content in it; one planet, five additional clvls, an extension of the main storyline, and a volume of dailies. I presume it added a new raid as well but I haven't quite geared past the level 55 hard mode flashpoints yet.

    They're a smart group. They'll ponder on it and come to their own conclusions in time.

    Negative.

    The distinction between PvP and PvE servers is pretty much the occurrence of world PvP outside of designated venues (such as the planet Ilum). Note here that Empire tends to outnumber Republic.

    The game has been condensed into a few relatively large servers. I would suggest picking whichever one is associated with your geographical location, in order to minimize ping. As for classes and groups, SWTOR utilizes the trinity system - tank, healer, dps - and demand is much the same in this regard as you will find in any trinity-based MMO. Note though that you can easily and rapidly solo to max level through questing. Grouping does not become a pressing concern unless you plan to raid.

    I have played a sniper to max level, back at the game's release, and recently a sorcerer to nearly max level. I found the sorcerer to be far more able to handle the solo PvE content than the sniper was, and I've always preferred playing healers in PvP. On the sith empire side, many people seem to play the mercenary for rDPS, the assassin for mDPS, the operative for HPS, and the juggernaut for tank. Republic classes in turn are mirrors of the sith empire classes.

    Subscription vs preferred vs f2p benefits are here. Personally, I subscribe and have never actually used the f2p / microtransaction mode.

    I don't appreciate the fact that it only seems we can have a discussion about gun violence in this country after particularly horrific incidents, either. I wish we could have a reasonable discussion about its nature and effects, as a public health problem, and consider relatively small steps we could take to limit it - not related to personal ownership of guns - outside of such incidents.

    But we can't. The debate on the subject is so disordered that considering gun violence outside of the emotional impact of a specific incident is not possible. Again, I wish that weren't the case, but that's got nothing to do with proponents, and everything to do with gun lobby attempts to shut down debate. They simply don't want to talk about it, ever. Only if the incident is particularly horrific are the rest of us even able to consider it.

    Also, "gun control" is a broad set of potential policy prescriptions. I wouldn't necessarily agree provisions wouldn't have an effect. Limiting magazines, for example, is specifically aimed at mass shooters. Of course, proposals aimed primarily at mass shooting then faces opposition from those who say "but that will virtually do nothing to stop the vast majority of homicides."

    It has what is far and away the best questing experience I've experienced in an MMO. If you're the sort of gamer that plays through a game once, I'd say SWTOR is worth it. As I understand it, however, the free to play version has some severe restrictions upon skill bars that would make anything beyond low level play difficult. I believe f2p players are allotted something like two skill bars worth of space for their spells and abilities. By midgame your character's skills would easily occupy four bars.

    There is a "preferred status" mode with a one-time cost of $5, which, when combined with a skill-bar unlock, should suffice through max level.

    It's not that I don't care about this issue. I just don't care to respond to private tantrums.
