It’s that time again folks. Time to add another name to the wanted list. This week’s most wanted goes by the name Adaram, old timer, ALTaholic, and all around great guy.
What’s your name and/or handle?
What is your occupation in real life?
CFO (Chief Financial Officer) of a private company.
What Guild do you belong to?
Old Timer’s Guild, as well as Kings Beyond the Wall (LOTRO)
What MMO have you devoted most of your time to in the past and why?
WoW probably wins the most hours played, but LOTRO is a close second. WoW was my first and was utterly addicting. I find I play MMOs for less total hours now since I have “been there, done that,” so now it is just more of the same in a different setting. I am hopeful that SWTOR’s story-based game will change that.
What class and advanced class are you planning to make your main? What playstyle are you going to choose?
Empire: Imperial Agent, Operative (Medic) and for Republic: Jedi Consular, Sage, Seer. I am an ALToholic so I am sure I will have something in every class eventually, but these two will likely be my main characters.
What made you interested in joining The Old Republic?
First, it’s Bioware; ‘nuff said! Second, the story-based, voice over style of game really appeals to me (aka Mass Effect and Dragon Age). Third, I have always liked Star Wars and now that I have been following SWTOR for so long, my knowledge of the SWTOR EU has grown a lot!
What is your most anticipated feature in TOR and why?
Story. I haven’t played many games to “the end,” but generally speaking, with a good story-based narrative to pull me along, reaching the end is a lot easier. It helps me “de-focus” from the leveling and the “grind.” I especially hate grinding, so I look forward to SWTOR from that perspective especially!
Do you classify yourself as hardcore, casual, or something else entirely?
I am very casual, not because I want to be, but because I have to be. Real life always trumps gaming for me. On the other hand, one might consider me to be “Hardcore” since all of my free time goes towards gaming, and SWTOR will get all of that once it is live. So … I am casually hardcore, if that makes sense?
How do you plan to go through your storyline? Do you plan on going Light Side, Dark Side, or will you be “Gray”? Why do you want to play this way?
I am going to allow my main characters to kind of “follow their instincts,” and I don’t really know whether that is dark or light at this time. I suspect Dark for the IA and Light for the Consular. I also plan to play a specific Alt that is Sith but will be working toward the light side.
What game mechanic do you see yourself devoting most of your time to?
Questing and following story will take most of my time. I tend not to be a PVP or endgame person due to my play time constraints. When most of your gaming sessions are <30 minutes at a time, it is hard to commit to anything but questing and following story.
What has been your most memorable Star Wars moment?
Definitely, receiving my General Beta Testing invitation in my email in late July has been the highlight. My family was laughing at me pretty hard as I danced around the house!
