There's never been a better time for Star Wars fans. From the stunning success of the new movie The Force Awakens, to the unparalleled Star Wars Rebels television show, to the entrance of Star Wars into the MMO field with Star Wars: The Old Republic, it is the heyday of Star Wars fandom in a way it hasn't been since the series' inception back in the late 1970s.
It's really no surprise that a Star Wars MMO would exist, with the popularity of the universe and the tremendous amount of Star Wars games already out there, and so when SWTOR came out in 2011, big things were expected from the game. Big things were just what the fan community got from Star Wars: The Old Republic, and with many praised updates to the game in the ensuing years and millions in overall revenue, SWTOR hasn't been just a bonafide hit MMO, it is actually the fastest-growing MMO of all time with over one million subscribers within three days of its launch.
Using the vaunted and beloved Star Wars universe as its background, SWTOR plays up the classic Star Wars conflict between the forces of good and evil, this time represented by the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire. The story is set about 300 years after the game Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, itself is set thousands of years before the films. The conflict you partake in by playing the game involves the Jedi moving away from the capital city of Coruscant back to their original home world of Tython, where they seek to regather their strength after a long war. As the Sith Empire seeks to expand, and the Jedi and the Galactic Republic face conflict on their own planets such as civil wars and politics, a dangerous cold war begins in the galaxy.
Players find themselves dropped into the middle of this epic conflict, and while they choose either to be in the Republic or the Sith Empire, characters can actually be of any morality they like no matter which side they choose. Players can also choose between eight combat classes, which are based on traditional Star Wars universe character types, such as Jedi Knights, Smugglers and Sith Inquisitors, and within each class there are various subclasses and companion characters that can be accessed. In addition to class and faction, the player will choose from ten species, and there's an extensive storyline in the game that the player can actually affect for other players by completing quests and otherwise interacting with the world, which is an innovation the game boasts.
SWTOR Credits: The Money of the Star Wars Universe
The primary SWTOR currency is the Galactic Credit, which players use to buy everything in the game, including items from the Galactic Trade Network (SWTOR's virtual marketplace/auction house where players can spend SWTOR credits on items sold by other players) and from vendors on various planets the player visits.
SWTOR currency is earned in typical MMO fashion through completing quests and by selling items gathered during exploits, but also like other MMOs, this can be difficult and time consuming if a player isn't an expert at the practice. Even excellent SWTOR players can find it hard to come by enough Galactic Credits to make the purchases they need. Typically, the players that make good money in this game spend hours upon hours staring at the Galactic Trade Network looking for ways to exploit changes in the market to make money, which is both hard to do and extremely tedious.
