5. Force Feedback
  • Email 1 from Bugger:
    • “I’m curious if there will be player and/or guild housing in SWTOR.I’d never really been interested in player housing until LOTRO and now it’s a driving factor in the direction I take my characters when questing.”
  • Email 2 from Wemb:
    • “If the quests put you into a cutscene, how does that work on a pvp server?
      Doesn’t it make you a bit vulnerable for attack?”
    • “In a Flashpoint, who makes the choice on how you respond to dialogue?”
    • “Also in a Flashpoint, if one or two companions are used to cover empty
      player spots, how do you choose whose companion/s are used?”
  • Email 3 from Wingy:
    • “Even though i heard it on the podcast i am still unsure how to go about buying the game.
      I have looked at www.swtor.com and clicked on pre-order.
      I really want to get the digital deluxe edition.
      Is anyone buying the collectors edition?
      I cant click on the button cause im at work, but how much will it cost to buy the game (AUS $) ?
      Also how does that postal thing work?
      Whats the payment methods?
      Are all copies coming from America and being shipped out?
      So there will be no Aussie retailer selling them?“
    • “Does that mean we will get a slower/lag response when playing the game due to servers being in America?”
    • “How many planets are there?”
    • “How many [characters] can you have going at one time (alts)?”
6. The Sarlacc Digest
  • Should there be flying mounts in SWTOR?
