How you found us: A tranny told me
This game obviously isn't for everyone but it is a breath of fresh air for me having been out of WoW for probably a year now. You have to realize also this isn't EQ or WoW or even EVE..... this is a vast departure from what MMOs are doing now. Some will like it and some wont. I know a guy personally that canceled his preorder because he doesn't like it at all and we raided together in WoW.
I have to say the republic storyline is boooooooring. I leveled a JC up to 22, a SI up to 21 and a IA up to 18 ish. I had a lot more fun on the imperial side and that is the side I will play at launch.
There was also a large jump in what was fixed from the 2nd to last weekend (where they let just about everyone in) and the last weekend. The second to last weekend was more of a stress test on the servers than anything. The very last beta weekend was the most polished build obviously and a lot of the things you are addressing were fixed at that point including the most annoying to me which was the map bug.
I agree that the conversations in the first flashpoints (BT or Esseles) are very long but from what I've heard the subsequent FPs have much less conversation and can be burned through pretty quickly. Luckily I will be leveling as a healer with a heal/dps and a tank so we can skip all the dialogue and just burn through shit.
You do have one thing wrong though, the beta releases are 3 revs behind. Devs, internal testers, then fulltime beta/weekenders is the build order. But that being said there was a huge jump in build stability and bug fixes between the last 2 tests.
Lord, beer me strength
