Re: Star Wars: The Old Republic

In a day or two all the guilds will be getting their server assignments, and after that Early Access starts. I just found this thread, but I'll come back and see if there's anybody else who happens to like both XKCD and TOR on my server. Also, shameless plug for The SLAM Force ;)
