If server meltdown is a sign of profitability, the branding of Star Wars: The Old Republic as a WoW-killer might not be as wild as some have assumed. Bioware and Lucasarts jointly announced the opening of the site hub were players can sign up for the public beta version of the upcoming MMO. The subsequent flood of interest that poured into the site decimated it, the portal crashing within hours of the announcement. The minds behind the site, SWTOR.com, have said that have focused their efforts to retool the site for the “overwhelming response” from fans, meaning the site is down for the count for at least a while. Once the site goes live once again, all interested gamers will have the opportunity to compete with the nerdiest among them and vouch for any open spots in the beta. If an outside life you have, out of luck you are.
