There are probably a bunch that will sit under xmas trees but 500k to 1M of em seems far fetched.

 

There's also going to be the Star Wars / BioWare fans who never touched a MMO that will be confused by the "credit card is needed to access this game" process.

I know to us it seems like someone has to be completely daft.

But I got some good friends who are exceptionally intelligent people just hating the process. Of course 2 of them are Canadian, but we won't hold that against them.

I'm just saying of the 2 million, there's a good chunk who are parents thinking they're buying their kids a Star Wars game and they're not going to be happy when fees are applied.

Now a days it's a common enough concept tho' that it probably won't be a 500k drop problem. But there are some issues out there with it currently that I've seen in my fellow nerd circles.

What does this have to do with anything? I'm Canadian and there is absolutely nothing wrong with being Canadian.

Are you serious?  If that's true, they have no right to brag until they're a few months in.  And even then, that's a really shady tactic... but it's EA.  I don't expect much else.

There were supposedly over 900k pre-orders of digital copies alone.  That was not counting boxed pre-orders, or of course box sales since official release.  This actually seems pretty low..........It will of course decline after the first month, and much more when other big name mmo's come out next year.  Hmmmm, I had suspected a retention rate of around a million but I'm guessing may be more like 500k or something like that in a year.

They require you to set up a subscription plan so it'll auto-renew at the end of the free month. Kind of like every other MMORPG with "Valid credit card or game time card required to play" printed on the front of the box.

I like how the bar for success for this game has to constantly keep moving when the haters are faced with the news that this game is doing well.

I pre-ordered, but I'm at my parents house for Christmas and haven't had a chance to play at all. Also the game didn't get delivered to my house until TODAY.

Wasn't 500.000 the minimum number of players for SWTOR to survive? With a 50% retention right now they would be barely surviving.

I know they can stoop that low; after all they support the SOPA act, proof positive that they have no soul.  I just can't remember that many games, even that many MMOs, that have required me to give up my credit card info for free playtime.  If you like the game, the auto-renewal is convenient.  If you don't, and you happen to have other things going on at the beginning of the new year and forget, well, there's money wasted for a "free" month.  They don't care, it's money in the bank for EA corporate scum.

There is if you always have jokes flying over your head.

That aside; two of my clan mates are having a real crap time with TOR's customer support at the moment and the emails always reference that they're Canadian as if it's their fault they can't get the billing straightened out. It shouldn't be a problem, but we all know how customer support can be and it's probably not that big of a deal to begin with.

I used to play MMOs like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee.

Well grats to SWTOR.. and i am sure it will go up more as well.

Just hope the down is not as fast as the up.

 

But i bet after the 30-60 day mark we will not get an actual number of players that are still subs.. not official anyhow:P

EA is supporting SOPA?! Well they really are going out of their way to be the bad guys.... Reminds me of Mel Brooks' "Producers." If I were any more paranoid I'd start theorizing about EA's owners wanting to go bankrupt so they can collect insurance or somesuch... It's almost as bad as Metallica suing Napster and their fans for downloading rare recordings, lol.

Lol, "A subscription to SW:TOR is a subscription to net censorship." "Buy EA, buy Big Brother." I'm sure somene more imaginatve and less drunk will be able to come up with a better slogan, lol.

I couldn't help but laugh, I'm sorry lol.

 

Congrats...though I swear to God to I can't wait for AAA MMO's to say "fuck subscriptions we don't need em let people play and have fun!!!!!"

I'm not afraid to tell trolls what they [need] to hear, even if that means for me to have an forced absence afterwards.

I think everyone predicted TOR would get about a million initial subs, thats actually low by some peoples predictions. But almost every new themepark big budget mmo has had similar numbers. Its the 6 month stretch that will really be telling, 3 to 4 months even. Since TOR didin't really change the genre its going to have to hold its subs with quantity of new content and quality of enhancements in it's patch and expansion material. I still say more content in the city areas, more races, do something with space, if they can do that subs will increase. What Star Wars fan doesn't want more races.

Has nothing to do with it. No one's moving any "bar for success".

For any newly released MMO, you can't declare a game's "Success" based on its initial sales. With MMOs it's all about retention. Games have sold as much as TOR at launch and have dropped dramatically after their 1st or 2nd month. That's why you can't go on initial sales alone.

So again, no bar is being moved. Some TOR fans are, however, celebrating a bit prematurely.

Further, was anyone seriously expecting the game to not do really well in initial sales, outside of those who would say so just fo the sake of being negative?
