Probably about 5 hours I guess, give or take.

For the first month or so of release I easily logged 20+ hours, but now its more like 5-10, bout an hour or two a day, sometimes more, sometimes I'll go a couple days w/ out playing, kinda tired of...nvrmnd, it's still great fun when I play.
Only played SP for the first week, primarily play MP regardless of...nvrmnd.

*edit* wish I had the skills to show for all the time logged on JO and JA.

None.
This game is aweful in present state (from a competetive outlook) and I have subsequently shelved it until an skd/patch is released.

Did you ever play SP (without cheats)?

Beat the game on Jedi Knight w/ no cheats (except swoop level, kept falling off swoop or crashing, used godmode :) )

Havn't tried Jedi Master yet but we'll get around to it eventually, heard you only get 50 HP though, that sucks ;)

If the question was directed towards me I guess the answer would be...not 100% cheat free :(

Jedi Master difficulty is very down and dirty. Not only do you have only 50 HP, you are limited to a max of 50 shields until you get to a shield generator. On a couple levels, especially the Vjun, Chandrila, and Taspir ones, there are a few more of the red new reborn. They have insane drain which if they manage to latch onto you will suck all of your force in about 5 seconds and your life in about 10 seconds. Lightning is no threat unless you didn't get absorb along the way.

By the way, I averaged around 15-20 hrs/week the first month but now the excitement has died down a bit and I'm limited to about 5 hrs/week due to midterms.

My 10 - 15 hours is pretty much SP only, perhaps 1-2 hours of MP per week. My pacing is really 5 - 10, but each week I seem to hit a long stretch of playing instead of sleeping ...

... now I have to decide, I'm traveling next week - do I bring the Mac and play Jedi Outcast, Baldur's Gate and Neverwinter Nights or the PC and play JA and ... well, that would be about it ;)

With a busy school week with lots of homework I play it for around 5+ hours.

With a half-term I spend about 10-15+ hours.

Me...when I'm busy (at school) its around 5 or 4 hours, half-terms and holidays are about the same because I also spend a lot of my time playing NeverWinter Nights, Bf1942, and Halo.

I'd say about 5 to 10, that is until Lineage 2 comes out, then it will be cut down quite a bit.

Good for you.

Maybe we wouldn't have to wonder 'what the problem is' (i.e. your poll, Prime) if people who have taken a 'protest vacation' from the game also took one from b*tching on the forums ...

I only play MP now, (since I have beaten SP on Jedi Master a couple times:)) And I play about 3-5 hours a day, so about 20+ hours a week.

I did play about 20+ hours of SP and MP, but now..
Zipp the big ZERO..
0
NOTHING
I have a lil rant bout this game...
so,
Im playing call of duty..better online community none of this noob noob stuff and the flailing..
Ah the flailing...
flailing in other games gets you killed..
this game its a 50/50 crap shoot...
you may win just by flailing...
Im still cheezed at the compitionless-ness (nice word) that this game has...
Disapointed by LA big time.
So I and my friends have stopped playing it and would rather play outcast than academy...
Only thing stopping me from trading it at EB is waiting for a patch.
(shudder at the 103 ness)
Funny thing is I was one of the peeps that loved MotS more than JK...... and played alot of it online.
go figure lol :P

Um, bod, if you were good, you could kill anyone who 'flails'. You might not want to bash a game before you get better at it.

Some days I don't play at all (just run my server in the background), but the days I do play I usually play a few hours.

So I'd say probably in the 5-10 bracket averages out well for me.

10-15 hours i think.

With cheats. ^^

JA has been the flavour of the month for me for the last 2 months...so 5-10 hours per week I guess... this interest has been prolonged by things like ladder levels, and using a cool mara jade skin

but I'm sure my fervor will fade with time...and KOTOR...and...

Im really itchin to get a gamecube now, rebel strike looks AMAZING !!!!

*goes off to plot and scheme to get a GC damn cheap*

:o This is what I thought too. Ever now and then people will get lucky hits in, especially in FFA. But for the most part, from what I have experienced button-mashing usually ends in failure.

But if he doesn't want to play, that's fine with me. It doesn't affect me in the slightest anyway.
