Interview with SWTOR Live Producer Cory Butler @ NY Comic Con 2011


Our discussion covered a range of topics including:
1. ramping up server populations at launch
2. relationship with LucasFilm and honoring the IP
3. World PVP zone mechanics
4. BioWare’s “Telemetry” tools and testing
5. what differentiates SWTOR from the MMO market
6. re-specing and hybrid specs

NYCC was my first experience with SWTOR, and the game, panels, and BioWare team members were very impressive. SWTOR = epic!

Links to discussion threads for this video:

P.S. I recorded the main SWTOR panel and if I don’t blow out the router here will try to upload it before I leave NYC

P.P.S. I plan to play multiple classes at launch and (time permitting) write up detailed Guides for PVP and PVE. I mean Guides like this one, which to-date has ~1000 comments and is stickied on the WoW Pally forum.

    Taugrim, good questions, I wonder if they will have the ability to multi spec or will you just have to respec constantly for different playstyles?

    At launch, they will not support dual- or multi-spec’ing.

    So if you want to try a different spec for your class, you gotta pay your trainer for a re-spec.

    The game looked superb btw :)

      My current plan is to continue to play RIFT, and to check out SWTOR and GW2 when they launch.

      2011 is turning out to be a great year for MMORPGs – the year opened with the first successful AAA-quality launch with RIFT and will close with another one in SWTOR.

      FWIW, I was impressed with the PVP in the warzone matches I played in the SWTOR booth at NYCC.

      I’m not sure why some people have said SWTOR PVP is bad, that wasn’t my experience.

    I think you should stop putting star wars stuff on your blog because then I get overly excited and dont think I can wait that long!

      Friz,

      That sounds like how I used to describe what would happen when we came home after a long day and our dog pee’d on the floor when we opened the door.

      I’ll be back online RIFT later tonight and / or tomorrow if you are up for doing some premades.
