  1. So after playing TOR since it's release I've finally finished all the class stories this morning earning my Legendary Player status. I have to say TOR is an exceptional game with some of the best storytelling I've seen in an MMO to date (FFXIV takes second sadly, while the story is amazing it's just not personal enough like the TOR class stories are).

    Have to say my favorite Class Stories were Sith Inquisitor (even if it was a little predictable at times), Imperial Agent (I haven't played the Light Side version but the Dark Side one was pretty damn fun), and surprisingly Jedi Consular (which I beat this morning. While a little boring the twists and turns the story takes after Chapter 1 were fun). The other stories were just a little to bland for my tastes (Sith Warrior was okay but revenge stories just aren't all that great any more. Jedi Knight wasn't all that amazing but the final story mission was pretty cool. The rest I really don't have much to say about (though Smuggler was good for a few laughs)).

    Gotta say for their first time doing an MMO Bioware did a great job, even if the game has gone through more rocky points then most MMO's. The Knights of the Fallen Empire and Knights of the Eternal Throne expansions were amazing, well done, and outside of the class stories had some of the best story writing I've seen in awhile (this goes for single player games as well). Can't wait to see what Bioware has in store for TOR in the future but I'm happy to say I can finally put this game on the back burner until it happens.

      I loved my playthrough as Sith Marauder. The only part I disliked was fighting that double of me or whatever it was. It was highly frustrating, more so than any other part of the story. If anything the game is like a ton of KOTOR games in one if you never play endgame content, you still get an insane amount of story driven content with plenty of nicely placed easter eggs paying tribute to the original KOTOR. They're story is definitely top notch. GW2's personal stories shit, although living world is amazing, its endgame post launch episodic content.

      Bioware are just masters at story telling. (despite what people think about ME3's ending XD). I'm def looking forward to their next big Star Wars game that isn't an MMO.
