Having read up extensively on this game now, I'm left with a question- hopefully you guys can help me out.
First, with the possibility of playing a Jedi I can see everyone and their dog rushing out to get a lightsabre. Are there going to be any penalties to playing this class (for want of a better term) to try and balance out the player types? My thought would be make all Jedi fugitives from Imperial law and put a bounty on them, as that would move some people away while fitting with the background.
Having said that, looking forward to the release. Will have to start putting together a character portfolio...

I've been saying for a long time that Vader and his imp enforcers are going to be the balance for Jedi. I think there will also be a lot of players who will keep jedi down by hunting them (possibly in gangs). They may want to kill Jedi for a bounty offered by the imperials or just for bragging rights.

refering to my earlier post under "how hard will it be to make a lightsaber" and my post which has 10 reason why it'll be hard to be a jedi. I personally won't be surprised if hunting jedi, once the game really takes off, would be 30-40% of the automatic bounties that npc types would offer.

If I found out how to become a jedi I might dabble with it, but honestly my main focus wil be manufacturing and money making.

They have said that the path to being a Jedi will change every time. They don't want how to do it to get out because they want to have a very small number of Jedi in the game.

The developers have made it clear the being a Jedi is going to be very rare...they say maybe 3-5% or even less of the people playing the game will be Jedi. And once one becomes force sensitive (which will be different for every player and character) you will basically have to dedicate all your time on being Jedi because if you dont, you can loose your force sensitivity. Jedi's will also be hunted down by Bobba-Fett, IQ-88, and other famous NPC (non-player controlled) bounty hunters. Oh also you will be haunted down by Darth Vader. The Devs have described the life of a Jedi as laborious but very rewarding. In addition I don't think anybody but a Jedi can use a lightsaber and if you are a Jedi you will be more powerful if you create your own saber.

MikeC
04-14-2002, 11:22 PM
Welcome Kiyamon. :D

I remember them saying somewhere that anybody can use a saber, but only Jedi will be able to use them affectively. Then again it may just be a discussion the community had I am remembering.

Morat20
04-17-2002, 06:47 PM
My personal viewpoint is that once you trigger the Jedi Quest (however initial force sensitivity works) is that what you do from that point onwards is logged. Jedi are so vital and integral a part of the universe that potential Jedi candidates are going to be screened. Now, they won't read your comments and move line-by-line, they don't have the personel to do it for the 100 or so Jedi per server.

But they'll look for trends in your behavoir. The fights you get into, the things your character does. To see if you fit the mold, so to speak.

But I think that's just at first. To more often than not somewhat customize your quest. To keep it unique.

But to keep being a Jedi, well...

You see, there's a particular type of Jedi that this time span requires. Discreet. Quite. Hiding.

You flaunt the skills of a Jedi, and as MikeC said, you come to the attention of Vader.

And not only that, but the very large standing bounty on information leading to the capture or death of a Jedi.

I would hope, actually, that the path to become a Jedi requires long quests. Not the 30 minutes to 2 hour "normal" quests, or even the longer 12 to 14 hour "themepark" quests. But several 10 or more hour quests.

One to find your teacher, your Holocron, or old books. One to learn the skills. One to gather the parts for your lightsaber. One to test yourself as a Jedi.

To make you put weeks of effort, if not months, into creating a character you care about, so that, dark or light, you're not going to lose it by showing off, or ganking people for fun.

And then to sell that character on eBay for loads of $$$. :cool:

COM. Tomas
04-18-2002, 07:13 AM
the downside is that it takes loads of time becoming a jedi, while other types of jobs can be acchieved in just a short time compared to the jedi.
Becoming a dark jedi is even a more difficult way, as you should rise to belong between the jedi, then fall into the depths of the dark forces. Mastering them should be really cool.
Although im planning on playing something different as an jedi.

How do you guy think of the name system, which doesnt allow KILLER67 and such?

Wraith 8
04-18-2002, 12:15 PM

Vegan
04-18-2002, 06:12 PM
To add to what MikeC said

"And then to sell that character on eBay for loads of $$$. "

Only power gamers, people who make it their jobs to play games, will become Jedis and make loads on internet auctions such as ebay. Keep in mind this is a star wars game. The possibities are endless.

Any experienced mmorpg player knows that anything rare will be sold for a ton. The Dev team should know this and prevent it. Making it extremely rare to become a Jedi is not the solution.

Morat20
04-18-2002, 07:44 PM
Actually, I think you're wrong about the power gamers. It's not the power gamers they're going to winnow for.

It's the people who care for their characters. It's not "being online 10 hours a day, 7 days a week", or being super efficient about climbing the skill tree.

The people they want, and I'm willing to bet the people their methods are designed to find, are those who care.

Not so much roleplayers. You don't have to be a good roleplayer.

It's a subtle distinction. I'm not sure how they'll manage it.

But they want the sort who would never sell their character.

Where it's not about the world they're in, or even the people. It's about the character. What can he learn? Do? Where can I take him today? What can I make out of him?

And Jedi aren't rare for any reason other than Jedi are supposed to be rare to begin with, and even rarer with Darth Vader breathing down their necks.

MikeC
04-18-2002, 11:48 PM
I agree with Morat. Every indication we have is that power gamers are not the ones who will become Jedi. Well, that's not the right way to put it. Being a power gamer will not determine if you become force sensitive. They haven't given any details, but it almost seems to have a sense of randomness to it (at least in my mind).

Com Raven
04-19-2002, 10:11 AM
Well, power gamers becoming jedi isn't as bad as long as they are limited...

MikeC
04-19-2002, 12:57 PM
I agree with you com. I'm just saying that being a power gamer won't necessarily increase your chances of becoming a Jedi.

COM. Tomas
04-20-2002, 02:27 PM
well, i am not exactly sure yet what im going include in my char.
proprably, after reading more info (in contradiction to what i said earlier) trying to be a jedi-warrior, but in the first case, just a noble adventurer, helping out where he can, and, after a while, using and mastering the force .

But i always liked to be a leader of a criminal empire, so ill try that sure too :D havent made up my mind,

what about you?

Com Raven

Very true. Now forgive me if this is available in the FAQ (I'm kind of new around here) but I believe we won't be able to be stormtroopers, something that I was looking forwards to. Screw those pesky Jedi. Nothing beats a nice shiny white suit and a big gun. ;) I do hope I will be able to play a similar part though.

MikeC
04-29-2002, 06:49 PM
That's correct. You cannot be a stormtrooper because you will be AWOL most of the game while you are out adventuring. You will be able to play imperial officers/commandos where you have a bit more freedom of movement. Stormtroopers will (I'm sure) be in the game as NPCs and as you move up in the imperial ranks you will probably be able to give some of them orders.

Sounds cool.

I must say I've never been a diehard SW fan (I follow it, but not religiously) but this game is quite exciting. I played JK2 and that was damn neat. It'll be so cool running around the galaxy hunting down Jedi and maybe, just maybe, I might be able to lead an Imperial victory against the big teddy bears. :)

I hardly get a reply from players when I try and strike up a conversation. Is it me, or are the majority of people online just not that sociable?

I've never really played MMRPGS (well I had a go at UO for all of a week), but I hope the social aspect is a bit more involving. No matter what I'm doing I love to converse with people, even if it is just a few humourous comments during my brief times online.

Hiya

I'm sure I read somewhere that rising to become a jedi isn't an automated process. I read this to mean that aspiring jedi will be lead by a real person. If this has been discussed before i'd like to hear more about it.

I find it very amusing to see people creating Jedi PA's like they can just choose it as a career right from the start menu :).

05-08-2002, 06:47 AM

Jan Gaarni

Q: Can you choose a career/profession from the start?

I thought you had to work for that.

Am I right? :)

Gaalgoth
05-08-2002, 02:03 PM
This is what CGW says: "The officer will then ask what your professions is. Novice players can choose from basic templates (roles like farmer, soldier, or dancer), which automatically allocate the required starting skills. If you're a more advanced player, you can skip these templates and allocate the skill points yourself. Actual profession names are still being finalized, but expect options ranging from smuggler to chef." The officer thingy in the beginning is there because apparently the character creation screen will be like a customs officer. Anyways, if you're interested, as you progress through the game things like your health never change. This means that a crazy bounty hunter and a chef will have the same amount of life, species benefits aside, and so it will be easier to play with high characters when you are a new character because you will have the same amount of life. I thought that was cool, so I threw it in as well.

MikeC
05-08-2002, 08:48 PM
Welcome gavor. I agree, its downright funny to see all these jedi and dark jedi PAs popping up. So often I've wanted to smack some of these people upside the head and tell them to go play Jedi Outcast if they want to be a Jedi that bad.

We really know nothing about the process for becoming a Jedi. Anything you hear is speculation. The developers have been very quiet about the path to being a Jedi.

gavor
05-08-2002, 11:02 PM
Thanks for the welcome. Everyone enjoys a polite forum. :).

Like everyone else I'd be very happy if one of my characters exhibited force sensitivity. BUT, i'm not after a flashy lightsaber or special powers, it'd just be fun. I've played Jedi Outcast and got myself a fill of jumping, saber wielding goodness. I'm dying to play SWG for the Star Wars experience.
Years ago, someone from Lucasarts gave an interview saying basically they'd love to do a game like SWG but they were waiting for the technology. From that day i've been waiting and waiting. I'm not planning on being a famous bounty hunter or a renowned smuggler, I'm just planning to have fun. And hopefully buy a ship to fly around in. :x-wing: :D

i doubt if becoming a jedi will be as difficult as you guys think it will. well, not in the sense you guys seem to say. as theyve said, anyone can be a jedi. no skill, no randomness, just desire. anyone that wants to be a jedi will probably be able to be a jedi. ANYONE. but the trick is all the things that will make everyone not want to be a jedi. as you guys have mentioned, there will be COUNTLESS people out to kill the jedi, which is a huge downside. but the real chaser will be that itll be rare to find someone willing to take the time to become one. im thinkin that itll take anywhere from 100-250 hours. and thatll be for the training. i bet its gonna be the most tedious work ever too. not hard, just a pain. of course there will be that intro mission to becoming a jedi that you have to see or youll miss your chance. but as for your power as a jedi, it wont have a random midichlorian count, everyone will have the same general "force sensitivity" but the difference will lie in specific skill point placement. (by the way, whoever had the idea of the midichlorians going up with skill, thats a pretty good idea in my opinion)

...now ive lost my train of thought so ill sum up. i dont think itll be difficult to be jedi, itll just take sooo long (and hard to stay a light one...) that only the die hard jedi wannabes will want to do it. im guessin we see more failed jedi than real ones...

Lord Helmet
05-09-2002, 08:56 AM
im agreeing with you,but the thing is heres what i think after what ive hears, each character has to follow a specific career choice to become force sensitive so maybe you just have to experiment with different careers.

about the bountyhunters, i thought you don't die permanently when you are killed so how would that eliminate jedi?

Gaalgoth
05-09-2002, 07:24 PM
well, if you do lose skill then everytime you die you get pushed farther and farther back....that would make it really hard to be a jedi if you have lots of people hunting you. But here's another thing....If you gain skill points from doing stuff, then won't you eventually have so many skill points that you can just invest them into class after class in every possible configuration (being that you can unlearn them) and eventually become force sensitive? sounds like a bored-out-of-my-mind-night task to me. Kinda cheap, but still, it would work, wouldn't it?

Jan Gaarni
05-09-2002, 07:39 PM
I may be wrong here, but ....

Allocating skillpoints from one skill and immediatly to another is not how you change your skill. You have to work for those points just like you did with the skill you took those points from.
When you free up skillpoints, you can't just add all the points to another skill. you have to work for it, meaning you have to preform the skill. And when you've preformed it for a certain amount of times, you will be allowed to allocate a point to that skill.

Gaalgoth
05-09-2002, 07:44 PM
I dunno, that might be right. All I heard was that the points could be forgotton and reallocated at no penalty.

gavor
05-09-2002, 09:38 PM
I was having a very similar skill/attribute discussion with a friend yesterday and intended to start a new thread about it, heres what i emailed him....

you have a finite number of skill points that doesnt increase. you can spend these as you will on skills and other skills will become available as you do so or as you complete missions or train or whatever. you can take points back from skills you no longer want and apply them elsewhere if a new skills becomes available. the points needed to get a skill increases as you go up the tree or across the tree so eventually you will run out of skills points and therefore cannot gain new skills. i wonder how the swapping skill points thing works. if i have high level shooting skills but at some other time i learned the high level armor skills but didn't use it, can i take my points from shooting and put them in the armour skills then make great armour then straight away take the points from armour and put them back in shooting? That doesnt sound right.

......

The skill examples are just to illustrate the point and I get the feeling you CAN earn extra skill points but I'm not sure. I'm also guessing the description of swapping points around at will isnt correct either. Can anyone throw some light on this?

Wraith 8
05-10-2002, 04:59 AM
you know this whole skill thing .... it brings me back to the SIMS... where you have to develope sertians skills to get better in your job or better learn how to cook or something.... i still think that is the same way it is gonna be in SWG..... but that is just me

arguile
05-10-2002, 07:19 PM
they wont die permanently, but since so many bounty hunters will be looking for the jedi, which since theyre gonna be so rare it will likely be you (if you were the jedi of course), its just gonna be a pain to die every twenty seconds so some bounty hunters can get rich. it wont be permanent death thats the problem, itll just be so hard to stay alive.

I think that's one of the main reasons why people will not become jedi; they will not be allowed to brag about it, saying that they are jedi.

Because when they do that, bounty hunters will be attracted like flies to a corpse.

::whispers to Boreas:: just so you know, being a bounty hunter is going to be more than just shooting. Also, you won't get a ship until the expansion which will come out a year after the release of the game, and even then it won't have all of the ships from the star wars universe. and besides that, we were just talking about being bounty hunters....The last person to say they were going to be a jedi on this post was a while ago. Also, no jedi in his/her right mind will be showing off, and they will most likely be able to deflect your shot unless they either really suck or you get really lucky. There will also most likely be no one shot kills.

setsuko
05-17-2002, 09:28 PM
"turn into another screen at battles"? Eeeh... well... first, you have to realize that everything must happen in the same amount of time for everyone on the whole server. Otherwise, everyone would be out of sync, all the time. So all battles must be realtime, so you can't go into some kind of battlemode with another screen and such. However, some kind of com bat stance is common in these kind of games, a mode you must enter to fight someone. But it's not like a different game mode.

Lord Helmet
05-17-2002, 09:32 PM

Yeah, but its not like your victim has to enter battle mode too. Then you would be invincible, as long as you just stand there. It would simply not work in PvP.

I'll probably have a secondary smuggler or bounty hunter character to play if I want to take out my aggressions or just want to be wacky or something, but I'm going to play my Jedi like a Jedi.

If in fact he becomes a Jedi. It's going to be hard, and not just perseverance hard. There will be a lot of luck involved as well. Read the sticky.

It seems to me they'll want people willing to RP Jedi properly to be allowed to play them. I'd bet they log the people who have gained 'Force Sensitivity' (and that happens to everyone at some point, it seems), and decide to cancel it or not based on their actions. We don't know that much, so I'm going to keep my hopes up :) In any event, even if I can't be Jedi I can still become an agent for the Rebellion or something, maybe even a general. I don't have to be a Jedi, but I really do want to.

Dude, I don't know where you heard that, but that's not true. Most will never become force sensitive. You have to get the proper configuration of skills to become force sensitive, and that config is different for every character. That's why it's so hard to become a jedi. Well, that and it'll just be plain hard. Acting like a jedi will by no means make you become one.

So you need to be a power-gamer or make three dozen throw-away characters until you get lucky to get force sensitive, then you need to be a dedicated rper to make Jedi. Clever, if annoying.

I kinda like the idea of Jedi having to rp the character and act Jedi-like or be punished.

A Jedi isn't like any other character, they're a sacred part of SW and i believe a player abusing the position should in some way be punished. I dont know how. It's not a profession to be taken lightly. If you become a jedi you have a responsibility to the game to play that profesion properly so as not to ruin the exprience of other players.

I'm in full agreement. There should be a way to make those who play Jedi act Jedi-like. The problem is that with the force sensitivity system, if its like Gaalgoth says, is that power gamers are the people who will hit that magic combination, and the people who would be good jedi will not.
