Thanks for posting, Armand.

I played the beta for several months.

This video is damage control.

Pretty much everything mentioned are features that should have been in the game before it shipped, or the normal additional content to be expected in an MMO.

Scalable UI? This is basic functionality, not a "new feature!!11!!"

It's a good massively-single-player game (yes, you read that correctly) – it has good storylines for the various character classes – but it's not a very strong MMO.

Played it for a month, but the bugs, and there are quite a few, and the strange restrictions on the classes just drove me nuts. Gunfighter class has this dive for cover that doesn't work 50% of the time, forces you to dive in places that actually hamper your ability to fight, you have no shots at the enemy, but still expose yourself enemy fire while canceling yours and getting you killed. Republic players just seemed under powered, and I played both sides. I think, the empire had stronger developers, and since most to the children playing wanted to be Sith with there cookie cutter evil, worked to there advantage. PVP is a joke with no level bracketing, a 35 level player against a 50 level player is so much fun. Crafting is a waste of time, because vendors give good gear for tokens found on enemies and quest rewards. Lack of quest in different areas, no Guild features to speak of and Grouping or finding a group for a specific mission is a joke. The game is really laggy, with poor performance considering its cartoon look. Space combat is a joke, Star Wars Galaxies before there revamp was a better game.

There is a speed hack, that they can't fix and you mention on chat and or the forum, you get a warning about not using it.

I might be back in to check it out again in 6 month and see where its at in development.
