Star Wars fans, rejoice! It’s May the 4th, the semi-official holiday for all Star Wars fans in this galaxy and in one far, far away… if they have the Gregorian/Julian calendar… and Arabic numerals…

Anyway, MMOBomb in conjunction with BioWare is offering you the chance to win $25 worth of Cartel Coins in Star Wars: The Old Republic. All you have to do is leave a comment below telling us your favorite story from Star Wars: The Old Republic. We’ll read them over, and the best two will win 2850 Cartel Coins. To provide you with inspiration, both I and Magicman have come up with some of our favorite tales from our days in BioWare’s MMORPG:

SWTOR Huttball Jasons First Goal

Jason:

I loved whenever Huttball came up in my PvP queue. As a tank, I was generally content with just grabbing aggro and serving as a “blocker” for my fellow Huttballers. But, like any athlete, I wanted to score. I’d tried a few times, but it seemed like every time I got the Huttball, I’d be swarmed by at least three enemies and, even with my tankiness, die within seconds.

Then, one day, we had an amazing match. We crawled back from a 3-0 deficit to go up 4-3 and then, somehow, I got the ball. I was about ¾ of the way to the goal and saw I had a completely open field ahead of me! I huffed and I puffed and crawled toward the goal line, and just near the end, got jumped by four opponents. I froze one and just kept doggedly running for the goal, fingers hovering over my stun break if needed. But it never was, and my health was barely scratched the whole time. I surged across the finish line, capturing the moment in a screenshot and letting out a little cheer. We tacked on one more goal to win 6-3 in a Huttball match they’ll be talking about until Luke Skywalker’s time.

Magicman:

Back when SWTOR launched, my friends and I played as a full guild. Many of the people that appeared on the Free to Play Cast when I originally started it were from that group of online friends. We jumped into SWTOR at launch and loved it.

One of the SWTOR stories that sticks with me is from a friend of mine in that group named Brim. Brim has actually told this story on a Free to Play Cast, I think. Anyway, we’re raiding what must have been the first raid at the time, the Eternity Vault, probably wiping and getting mad and maybe getting frustrated by all the Soa bugs at the time. Brim gets so angry that he slams the stuff on his computer desk and does some damage to his PC’s display, making it useless. The best part? When his then-girlfriend got home that night he blamed the breakage on HER textbooks falling off of the shelf above the computer desk. Ahh, SWTOR… good times, good times!

In game? I loved tanking the Eternity Vault and Karagga’s Palace for the very first time we went into them. I loved SWTOR operations and my tank.

Entries will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. EDT on May 11. After that, we’ll select two winners and send them codes for 2850 Cartel Coins, a $25 value. So now that you’ve got our stories to go on, let us know what your favorite SWTOR moment was!

    I paid money to beta test the game when it was completely unfinished. First raid on nightmare I was able to solo the first boss, and the final boss would glitch out and become completely invincible, the third boss you could just farm over and over again.

    Broken as hell, must have submitted over 30 bug reports on that one instance.

  4. Ripperino on May 10, 2016

    I don’t have a story to tell rather fond memories of SWTOR at launch. Self-healing with frozen water in PvP getting dumped on by OP operatives. Karaggas Palace cleared in one night. Kill trading in Ilum. Seriously though at launch the PvP in SWTOR was the greatest. I had so much fun as a balance consular spamming warzones.

    • honglath on May 10, 2016

      Sorry, i’m replying here because it won’t allow me otherwise (503 error).

      You know, as a F2P player, i have yet to finish a class story. The furthest i’ve gone is with the Inquisitor on Hoth, but the closer i get to the finish line, the more i tend to stray away.
      I go back, make a new character and try different paths to see how it all fits together, like a puzzle.
      Each character, each conversation and each interaction are all pieces of that puzzle and depending on how you mix them together, you’ll find yourself viewing completely different pictures by the end of the story.
      I don’t know if i’m doing it right by avoiding the end pieces, but from what i’ve seen so far, the more you immerse yourself in the role of your character, even the slightest difference can create a whole ‘nother persona.
      My first role was playing as a skinny human slave seeking survival amongst titans. This inquisitor was always in search for a safe harbour while sailing through heavy storms made him more docile than necessary and as such, progression was much slower than it should have been both in story and gameplay.
      After a break and disappointment in the character i had built, i eventually returned to beginning of the road, only this time as a well-built, red-skinned Zabrak. It made all the difference.
      An imposing frame, with an intimidating glare, all mannerisms changed and the aggression started to flow more naturally. The change in perspective created a surge of confidence and allowed me to advance on a straightforward, yet darker path.
      Though in story, the character is merely at the end of Nar Shaddaa, i feel its development is much further along than its predecessor.

      Another character i played is the Sith Warrior. Inspired by what the change in character brought to my Inquisitor, i gave the warrior a sturdy build and intimidating make-up and off i went slaughtering fools and terrorizing mortals everywhere.
      Unexpectedly, by the time i reached Alderaan this war machine had turned into a meek kitten thanks to a certain twilek slave that happened to get under his skin. It was only after a certain battle and a wrong choice in dialogue that i realized what the character was when i started, what it had become and what it was supposed to be. The bloodthirsty maniac that bathed in the warm blood of his enemies was long gone by then and the light side reigned supreme.

      And now, i went back again and started out as a plump, female Sith Warrior that likes the sun and is quite mellow. Luckily, the choices so far are still within my expectations and can fulfill the role i seek, yet i can’t help but wonder… How long until my path diverges and takes me to another painting i have yet to see?

    Let me tell you about a young sith warrior who had a hard time fining a path that led to good and evil. It all started with a man he knew and told him “You can have great power if you learn the dark and the light”. So for 5 years this young sith did just that. Killing any one who gets in his way. As the years gone by he has master the dark side and is now trying to mast the light side. No one has done this but the Empire has master both side it would seem. As this sith warrior look for the Empire many years have past until now.

  6. Joker2Face on May 7, 2016

    Hmm i don’t have a good story to tell you 😀 i like the main stories each one class but i love the game as a Star Wars fan .. Good luck everyone! 🙂 May the force be with you

  7. Prosimian7 on May 7, 2016

    One of the best stories I have run across happens to be a side story that is easily overlooked. It does not matter what class you are to hunt the infamous Shroud. Chasing this evil villain across nearly every planet brings you to Nar Shaddaa where you corner him on a platform. After killing his droid bodyguards you find that he has hopped onto a waiting barge and taken off in true evil villain fashion. Like any real hero you hop on TOP of a flyby cab and begin to hop from car, to bus, to barge chasing him through Nar Shaddaa. That simple chase scene was perfect for my Imp Agent and made it feel just to much like any James Bond event.

  8. Noctureon on May 5, 2016

    My favorite SWTOR story would have to be impromptu roleplays with random people from the community.

    One time I was doing a raid where -spoilers- Darth Malgus wanted to claim dominion over the empire. As I RP’d on my Sith Juggernaut as one of the Eternal Emperor’s royal guard, complete with all-red garb, I tried to arrest him as we entered his chamber.

    After the cutscene and his speech was done, I managed to type out “In the name of the Emperor, I hereby order you to stand down or face immediate execution! You have the right to-” then, by sheer luck, I was the target for the rotational force-choke. This cued the rando’s I was with. They started trying to arrest him and “save” me from the choke. They were spouting lines like “I know the truth, Malgus! We will never let you win!” and “You’re bad for my wallet, Sith! Surrender!”. We adjusted the scenario every time Darth Malgus did an action, and we replied to his dialogue as if he can hear us. Best parts are when his text seemed to reply to what we’ve just said.

    It made the raid three times as hard as we typed out dialogue while trying our best not to die, but it also made it a thousand times more fun and immersive.

    • Better than you on May 9, 2016

      People like you ruin games. Stfu with all that stupid role play shit. There is a reason your garbage dialogue isn’t in the game.

  9. Niteia on May 5, 2016

    Well, my story today about SWTOR is about my first and dead character wich was a jedi knight, he was a bit inexperienced but he never gave up until he died. He reached the end of his training long after he was suposed to but when he finally did he thought we was at least going to do better from there on, sadly he wasnt right: once he reached coruscant his first desire was to explore that new world, he did, but also he made a big mistake, he forgot to speak with the masters to obtain the access to his deeper training, he never knew why he was so weak and died before studied more the force. His son did know his mistake and made sure to avoid making it again.

  10. Jaedia on May 5, 2016

    My SWTOR story is just beginning, but so far, the best moments have been chilling in-game with friends, having little dance parties in each others’ housing spaces. It’s a small moment, but they’re always the ones that stick in my memory the most.

  11. DarthKrotac on May 5, 2016

    Star wars the old republic doesn’t require much of a story except a few sentences. The game play gives you the ability to truly play in a way you enjoy. Transitioning from dark side to light. Or just going straight for either one as high as possible. The conversations are plentiful with options and choices of what to say. Even if i don’t win this because i didn’t write a story, I’m just happy MMOBomb.com is doing a giveaway and giving more publicity to it.

    Ya da benim diğer Rattataki kelle avcısı bakmak ve hemen o para, patlamalar ve fantezi vites için o olduğunu anladı. uzakta o yaptı gibi serin bir patlama yürüme birisi görmedim. yüzündeki sırıtış paha biçilmez ve böylece benimdi….TR

  13. ChaosZero on May 5, 2016

    This game has a lot of bugs and problems. But it is also the mmorpg that I’ve played the most. Been online for 3 years now, countless hours of playtime, lot of laughs and good moments.

    I remember when I was a new player, going on the Fleet for the first time and seeing all those lv50-55 players going around in their cool mounts and armors and I envied them because they looked awesome and I looked like garbage in my cheap lv10 gear. But the more I played, the less I envied others, because my character(s) were truly amazing on their own, not because of their fancy gear, but because they were mine. They were my characters. And they actually told a story even without saying a word.

    You could look at my Chiss bounty hunter (Not really lore friendly, but I liked the look) with her face full of scars and immediately tell that she’d been through a lot of battles, surpassed great challenges and eventually became a Mandalorian. The ceremony with all those little low poly 2D spectators cheering at me was great and it made me feel really special.

    Or you could look at my other Rattataki bounty hunter and immediately tell that she was in it for the money, the explosions and the fancy gear. Never seen someone walking away from an explosion as cool as she did. The grin on her face was priceless, and so was mine.

    i think i’m the only “good” sith that follows the jedi path lol i’ve given my character a good reputation but it turned to be a bad one amongst the sith community i go arround doing good actions and being as polite and well manered as i can it feels a little wrong but i like what i have going on

  15. One Soul on May 5, 2016

    Oh my favor game *o* im love the star wars series *o*

  16. Hikate on May 5, 2016

    i remmember playing as a sith marauder got to level 30 then i joined a guild were we were saving up to a guild flagship, we had saved up to 13,000 000 credits in the guild bank. Then our guild leader said he were going away for a while and took all the money we had save and never returned. I have had experience with shitty guild leaders before. after that i went in-active for a bout 3 months came back joined a new guild and we have had a lot of fun since then 😀

    My previous MMO experience was not very good before SWTOR, could never stick to any MMO for over couple of month, tried Perfect World, LOTRO and couple of other Korean or Japanese, and non of them could make me stick around (Yes sadly I missed Star Wars Galaxies). So when I first started SWTOR (about 4 years ago?), generally like most people I went for force sensitive class, and a dps, Sith Marauder. And I was never as usual struggling quite a bit, specially when doing flashpoints. Did not even dared to try a healer or tank.
    After about 2 weeks, I was doing Cademimu with a random group, and we had a Merc Healer.
    So I informed them I am still noob, the other dps said the same thing and the tank said he is a dps queued as tank. The healer said “No big deal, everybody stay near me all the time, we got this”. Then the whole team practically hugged the Merc the whole time and we finished the flashpoint without dying once and really really fast. We were all similar level and honestly I have not seen anyone heal anyone like that at that level. Specially with two noob dps, and one idiot dps who queued is tank.
    I was so impressed, that right after finishing the flashpoint, I logged out from my Marauder and created a Merc healer. And healer is now my most favourite role. I have 26 toons across 4 servers now and half of them are all healer, all thanks to that (I don’t even know that merc’s name” unknown Merc.

    I discovered SWTOR by pure accident. I was searching for a space-oriented MMO to play with my dad. So we plundged ourselves into Google to see what we could find, and we found SWTOR. A MMO based around the SW universe? What more could you ask for? I instantly loved this game. The amount of nostalgia tied in with a friendly community (which is incredibly hard to find nowadays) made me play this game for hours on my first day. Good times, good times.

  20. ApostropheS on May 5, 2016

    My favourite story in SWTOR is when I team up with my friends playing some flashpoints on hard mode. This is our first time play flashpoints and some of us get a little blurry when trying to fight. It was hard thought to finish it so we decided to change our character and make 3 healer and 1 tank. It really weird at first but for us it really getting much easier than previous plan that we had. LOL. The best moment is when we try to defeat last boss in the flashpoint. During battle, one of our friends just disconnected for no reason. He had some connection issues due to storm near his house, he says on teamspeak. So that make our team only 3/4 to defeat the boss. We never give up and continue to fight without hesitating. Like our motto said “If we defeat, we will defeat together, and if we win, we will win together. Guess what? We win! our HP only got 12% after that. But wow that was intense battle we ever played. 🙂 But we did it somehow.

  21. Silva on May 5, 2016

    Was a big Fan of KOTOR and KOTOR 2 so decided to give SWTOR a look, specially since bioware was involved and after finishing my 1st caracter story, the jedi knight, i couldnt stop thinking “this is what KOTOR 3 was suposed to be.
    Every other class has also a very interesting story and in an age where mmos are all about combat systems and other gimmicks, its nice to play a mmo with a good story.
    My most memorable moment in SWTOR has to be the Imperial Agent Story, wont spoil it but it would make an amasing Star Wars movie.
    Enjoy the game.

    Mon moment préféré dans swtor est surement dans la nouvelle extension ou l’on découvre que l’empereur était en train de mijoter quelque choses dans l’espace sauvage et qu’il a carrément changer d’optique dans cet espace 🙂 L’empereur Valkorion qui souhaite partager son pouvoir avec nous pour plus tard pouvoir prendre possession de notre corps <3 sauf que sa se déroule mal et son fils arcan le tue pour nous faire passer coupable et pouvoir prendre le trône éternel hm quel ****** xD

  24. Nick Reinsch on May 4, 2016

    My favourite story from swtor?
    Definetly being the healer in my group, and pulling back all those people which are in a wide teleport or jump (mir air). With that 90 second cooldown spell, you know? Like they’re mid-air in the jump, and they gotta fly over to me 😀
    That was so funny when you always saw the “member disconnected” 😀

  25. Darth Koredar on May 4, 2016

    My favorite story from SWTOR?

    Well my favorite (and most tragic) story would be of the rise and fall of the Dark Brotherhood guild on the Assassins of Sion server shortly after launch. I (Darth Koredar) founded the guild as a social leveling guild after launch and we quickly grew to be the largest (1st guild to hit the guild member cap) and most helpful guild on the server, we also created an Ops Team once some of our players hit level 50. Unfortunately, one of our members was a bit of a troublemaker and constantly butted heads with me, I gave him a time-out from the guild (temporary kick) to cool off and this wasn’t taken well by the Ops Team, who then gquit without notice and began to propagate unrest and drama which made many other guildies leave. In the end, I did the only thing I knew could help salvage our guild and lead a mass exodus, merging with another like-minded guild. I have never lead another guild since then, however, the legacy of the Dark Brotherhood still lives on through those who were originally on the Assassins of Sion server, I get pm’s from time to time asking if I had thought of re-founding it, or asking me to join their guild.

  26. dedicance on May 4, 2016

    I started playing since beta i joined a clan before the game launch and it was all well, after a month or two the clan fell apart i made my own and after servers were fused with one another we lost contact too some went to other servers and what not, i retired for about a year after that. Then i returned before galactic starfighter and strongholds then i left for another year. I then returned for Shadow of Revan just before Knights of the Fallen Empire and continued since then for a couple of months after Knights of the Fallen Empire and now i am in and out on the game.

  27. cptskillet on May 4, 2016

    So my story begins with me playing this game since launch and having an off/on again relationship with it. I had come back to the game when Novare Coast was recently new, and I picked up right where I left off with my Juggernaut. I queued up for pvp, and boom! got Novare Coast! I’ve never played this map till than so I was going in blind, upon loading into the map I see it’s kind of like Aldeeran. I tried to be offensive and I ended up dying pretty hard because I would split off from the pack. Halfway through the match, and we’re losing! I decide that it’s time to play defense and go to a point and do my best to hold it and let the others skirmish and try to take more points. It’s been so long and I don’t remember which point it was but I arrived to see a stealthed operative/agent trying to capture/defend the point. So I join the agent/operative and what transpired for the next 5 mins was amazing! 3 Jedi Sentinels lunge at me trying to whittle me down, know I can’t out damage them! But this Agent/operative was doing their hardest trying to keep me alive! We weathered their attack and with the help of the agent healing me, I slayed all 3 Sentinels! Never have I felt like such an unstoppable Sith Warrior! We were like an immovable object, defending the point, letting the dogs of the republic throw themselves at us and watching them break beneath our wrath! We ended up losing that match, however this moment will always stay with me. That was perhaps the most singular amazing moment of my entire swtor career. If the agent is out there somewhere, I want to thank you for making one hell of a memory with me.

  28. Amanda on May 4, 2016

    I haven’t had the honor of playing SWTOR since it first came out, but I’ve been playing it for about 3-4 years now. Everything about it has been such an adventure: the storyline, the expansions, the packs, endgame contents, etc. My favorite part of this game has and still is the conversations. Even with KOTOR and especially with the KotFE, being able to choose lightside and darkside options and having the future storyline affected really makes the game so much more interesting. KotFE has me sitting at the edge of my chair with its plot and I’m always excited for each chapter release.

  29. Griffiths on May 4, 2016

    Very nice. Gotta love this game!

  30. Wendy on May 4, 2016

    This is a story about regret. Out of all the class story lines, the one that has emotionally engaged me the most is that of the Smuggler. I really came to hate Skavak and how often he got away, but especially when he got away with something of mine. It seemed like every single time I was deprived of the satisfaction of serving him his just deserts! Oh how it would stick in my craw and I’d grind my teeth as he got away yet again! At the close of Chapter 1, however, the final showdown arrived. A friend and I went together as I claimed the famed Nok Drayen treasure and then returned to the XS freighter when the final confrontation came. I discovered that Skavak had stowed away in an attempt to try and steal said treasure and the final battle began as we both engaged him. Never having completed the storyline, I didn’t realize that this truly was the end at first. Once I understood, however, that Skavak wasn’t going to get away this time, I felt glee as I closed in for the kill and satisfaction that I was finally going to make him pay. As a female (both in and out of game) and a healer, I sometimes wince at the brutality of dirty kick, but this time there was no hesitation. It was well deserved! My friend and I were on skype as we often are when we play together, chatting as we run heroics and complete missions. I saw how low Skavak’s health was getting and started telling him to wait, to hold off… and I closed in (usually I dont melee as the healer) to deliver one well placed kicked below the belt, when my over zealous partner shot him, dropping Skavak dead just as I got within kicking range!! I could have cheerfully kicked my partner right then, if he had been within kicking range! Oh my god, how I felt cheated and raged internally at Skavak having escaped MY wrath once again! I know that I can always do another smuggler but this is my first one and my first completion of the storyline. It will never be the same again, because I’ll know what’s coming and while I may yet be able to serve a Skavak somewhere, in some galaxy far away, a well deserved kick below the belt.. it is never the same as your very first one!

  31. Waffleyz the third on May 4, 2016

    Well, I started out as a clone trooper, but then my homie died. During that battle, we captured a rebel pilot and killed the rest of the inhabitants. However, I worked with the pilot to start a daring escape, only to end up back where the massacre took place. Having crash landed, the pilot was nowhere to be found, and I was stranded in a desert. I made my way to a trading post, where I was mistakenly attacked by a scavenger girl who was alarmed by the BB8 drone that accompanied her. After I cleared my name, we were attacked by the First Ord-yeaaaah watch SW7 yourselves 😛 I’m not typing the entire plot lol

  32. Spartan Quartz on May 4, 2016

    Good luck to all

  33. TheEnygma on May 4, 2016

    Back when the game launched, the game’s pvp was one of the few ones in MMO’s that I got super deep into however back then I don’t believe the matchmaking didn’t separate the players in terms of levels like they do now, they just scaled the lower levels to the power of 50’s. So naturally my level 17 guardian (jedi knight tank spec) with barely any abilities was being matched against a full on clan with tags, website and everything and we’d get absolutely rekt. So whoever ya’ll were: you suck 🙂

  34. Kronos on May 4, 2016

    What can I really say… I’ve been playing SWTOR for quite a long time, and I’m one of those players who has never finished a class storyline! In just about 5/6 months I’ve created and deleted around 4/6 characters because I just get too excited with the story itself that I only wish to play all classes at the same time! Simply because I play it for the plot, that’s what really drives me to do. I know it might be a bit weird since , after all, it’s a MMORPG, but I don’t really play either Starfighter not even Flashpoints. I love the effort these guys have put on the voice acting and on the ability of players to choose their own path and so building their character’s personality. Therefore, the story I wish to tell here is a bit different from the majority.
    As a romantic guy, I always liked to spice things up whenever I had the chance, whether it was making out with Darth Lachris or to have some alone time with the Pilgrim’s Matriarch daughter. Although, since I never advanced very much on the storyline of previous characters I’ve created, I never got the chance to get romantically involved with a future companion. That is, until I actually progressed on my zabrak Sith Inquisitor. A lot of drama was made around some bold Jedi Padawan I apparently needed to convert/ seduce , but they just never showed how she actually looked until I finally saw her on a goddam holo-recording! Now here, is where one of the brilliant aspects of this game also gets involved: the soundtrack!
    You can only imagine my reaction when Ashara appears and the Anakin/ Padme song (“Across the Stars”) kicks in… It caught me so off guard that I just leaned back on my desk and almost cried (I may have some problems). I don’t know but that single moment made me hear that same song for nearly a week whenever I had the chance to…
    (I was single at the time, so that may or may have not have a role on my orgasm-like reaction to a character appearance on a video game)

    I remember first hearing about SWTOR when it was in closed beta, then I remember when it came out but it wasn’t free so I waited till they allowed players to get to I think it was level 8 or maybe 15 for free, and I played the crap out of that tiny bit of gameplay, then I could get to level 50 when the game became even more free, I deleted and made so many characters but I always stuck with my trooper for whatever reason and now he is maxed out (for a free to play character) and even to this day I still play this game even though everybody I know IRL says it’s trash.

    I remember the last time I tried to install SWTOR. Origin allowed me to install the launcher, but after logging into the launcher, it wouldn’t download. Simply kept the update button greyed out. Boy, that sure was a fun time not being allowed to install a game. Especially one that’s been out for years.

    I’d give a good story if I could even install the game. But no, that will never come to pass.

    I’m so glad that bioware returned to the story telling franchise with SWTOR, I really like the story in the fallen empire, what to say, SWTOR, create you’re own story based on the choices you take, have a romance with a partner, play with friend for hours and hours of fun. that’s the story of SWTOR, It’s just my OWN STORY…

    I remember the time that I did my first raid in SWTOR. The raid I was in was a pug and at first we had trouble getting in sync with each other which caused problems taking down the first couple of bosses but once we all got in sync with each other we took down the other bosses without much trouble. My character at the time was an Marauder and it was fun learning all of the strengths and weaknesses of playing the class so that I could become a better player.

    Now, this story actually spans several parts, but let me tell you it’s a great one. A little context: I had decided to finally get into RP, and I heard SWTOR was a great game for it. Boy was that the truth. The character I designed was a sith warrior, wielding two light sabers who was always furious named Jaxill. He had this blood lust, he dreamed of becoming the galaxies strongest sith, but whenever he challenged anyone the thing that gave him his power, his utter and raw rage, would end up being his downfall. Even the darkest, most evil of sith believed he needed to calm down.

    During his training he met another sith, Darth Sinnistar (Another player), who he immediately challenged, he raged at the black cloaked evil, swinging his sabers with a fury previously unheard of he. He seemed unstoppable, and yet this sith was even more powerful, he shrugged the blows of like that were nothing, choosing to not even attack. That is, until he raised his hand and used his immense force powers to squeeze the neck of our poor hero, nearly killing him. Jaxill swore to kill the bastard one day, to end his life and become a Darth Sith the likes no one had ever known.

    They had many confrontations, all ended the same way. Darth Sinnistar was unbreakable, unrelenting. Jaxill however, had the resolve, tested and true. Then, something changed. On an excursion for his master to Tattooine he was granted a force vision, a vision of himself as a sith of the light. His greed urged him on and he realized the only way to true, unrelenting, raw power was by the way of the light. From then on rededicated himself to the light side, and began a campaign to reconstruct the sith, and the empire, using the ways of the light. There was even a time when he was lighter, and more pure than many Jedi he came across.

    Jaxill never did forget Darth Sinnistar though, and one day they were reunited for one final battle. It was epic, the two were finally going toe to toe, and both lost themselves in the utter bliss that was a battle of wills, one of the dark, and one of the light.

    Jaxill walked away.

    Darth Sinnistar did not.

    When I first got swtor my friend and I decided to play together, after we each completed the first planet, I ended up gaining about 40 levels, while he had left and he was never able to catch up. Easily the only mmo I have ever been able to play (other than destiny if that counts).

    I remember first logging into to SWTOR. It took me a bit to get used to not having auto-attack as a jedi knight but i managed. I somehow managed to finish the heroics on Tython alone with the training saber (mind you i finished with around 20 hp left). I grinded through the story and side missions until i unlocked force push. I then a few hours later figured out i could throw my enemies to an untimely demise off of most nearby ledges. Needless to say I spent the rest of my night throwing enemy npcs off cliffs. next thing i know im being attacked by some dude. we fight for a little while and we’re about evenly matched. But then he manages to get too close to a cliff. I quickly threw him helplessly off the cliff and go about my business. NOT EVEN 5 MINUTES LATER I GET PRIVATE MESSAGED FROM ONE OF HIS ALTS RAGING SO RIDICULOUSLY HARD. I couldn’t stop laughing. Later I ended up at the fleet and he finds me and starts bothering me and saying duel me i’m gonna pwn you so we go somewhere we can fight it out… I mopped the floor with him in front of a group of people all of whom witnessed his big talk. He immediately logged and as far as i know he’s never been seen on that server since. lol.

    I remember my first time logging into SWTOR and wow was it a doozy. I was playing with a group of my friends since we all decided to start a SWTOR adventure together. We all chose to be Inquis or Warrior.

    Now here is where it gets funny. I’m one of asshole in MMOs that gets the kill on a mob while others don’t. We were doing heroics on Dromund and there was the one where we had to kill this mob in the dark temple. I found out that the guy had a ridiculous long spawn timer so this was my opportunity to fuck around. I would “accidentally” force lighting the guy and pulled aggro every single time. After like the 3rd time of doing it, everyone is obviously pissed off, so as punishment for my sacrilegious actions, my friends made me clear out the mandalorian camp without any of my armor and only with the basic training saber you get when you first make a sith, also without dying. If I was able to do it, they would transfer 100k credits from each of them to me (There were 3 other guys playing with me so thats an easy 300K) .Luckily they didn’t say that I had to give up my precious Khem so eventually I clutched my way through since khem held aggro for me. It took me a long ass time but I did it somehow.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
