UI design post

The TOR blog have a post up describing their UI design process, and where they have go to so far. Very interesting, especially as visually it looks like they have reversed some of the WoW UI, putting the party frames down the bottom left and the chat up the top right. The position of the player frame (with health etc) and the target frame directly below the player, is good, as I tend to put my player frame close to the character on screen, so I can see the health and also whats going on easily.

Welcome

Welcome to my latest blog, one about Starwars The Old Republic. Usually I go for a class specific blog, but given I have 3 such blogs, I've learnt my lesson and simply title this blog Starwars MMO.

Now I did play the other Starwars MMO, but let's not talk about that, cos I didn't like it very much.

I currently play World of Warcraft, so much of the content will relate to WoW in some way, be that concepts, class archetypes or just lifted mechanics, I'll relate to how stuff works in WoW when talking about TOR.

First up is some messing with the blog layout, then I can get into what we know about the game.
