Leaks, confession and where we stand

Published by under beta testing,Editorial on Jul. 13. 2010.

Let me be honest with you. I looked for and found the beta leaks. I was burning with curiosity. The footage was not spectacular, as it mostly showed things we saw before, but it did reveal some of the things we haven’t seen so far. Let me tell you why we haven’t seen them so far, because THEY ARE NOT FINISHED YET. It was glaringly obvious that some of the things were in beta stages and if they showed an image there saying “PLACEHOLDER” it would have the same effect.

This is what bothers me the most about this leak. Some other MMO player or innocent bystander will not go deep into analyzing the leaked footage and will say how Bioware is doing a poor job and that this game will suck. It feels as if this leak was created for just this purpose, to hurt the image of this game. It doesn’t feel as if it was made available to show us what the game is really about. Let me explain why. The things that look good and finished are the things we already saw previously from official sources. Some of the things we didn’t see so far felt unfinished. You can see great potential in some of them but all in all they were not too impressive from a finished game’s standpoint.

In light of all this, we here at Swtor Life, have decided to join the rest of the fansites and declare our resentment with the unapproved leaking of material from the game. We will not be posting, endorsing or supporting sites that post unauthorized materials in any way. We here declare that we will honor the Fansite agreement we’ve signed by creating this site.

To lighten the mood a bit, here’s a girl in a pink Darth Vader costume:

    hmm i disagree i thought the game looked great, its made me more excited, no auto attack, and its great to see some un biased footage, some real legit gameplay footage and all it did for me was increase the hype, but yeah i totally understand why they dont want leaked content getting out, the game is an unfinished product and it could not look to hott and scare away some potential customers

    I wouldn’t be surprised at all if the game was released unfinished like every other MMORG nowadays. I’m still going to try it, no matter what.

    I couldn’t agree more. Bioware has been doing a great job at releasing info as it is finalized which is great when compared to how other games release a ton of info and some of the features get axed (EQ, EQ2, Horizons, WAR, FFXI, FFXIV, etc).
