This has been damn fun so far. About what I expected. I made a Republic Smuggler and got to level 12 while I waited for my friend to get his early access. The cover system is fairly frustrating but it was still a fun class to play and I'm sure will be underused. Going to make that one a healer probably.
After he got his EA I made a Sith Sorcerer to level 12. Did the 1st flashpoint Black Talon. Pretty fun. Difficulty wasn't much but It's to be expected for the introductory zone. I like how you can fill the party with companions. Loving the game so far.
