No it's not THAT bad, but there's a few things, seems like I'm on railroad tracks when levelling up and maps seems very confined and each class has their own zone to start in. Most other MMO games let you roam to other zones/planets. As far as PvP goes, people are saying it's balanced at 50, not so thrilled about having to wait til I reach that level to do some.

Overall it'll last me a while, I'm definitely not going to play this game 12 months straight though.

I really think the game could have been a lot better with just a few relatively minor change.  Here is what I would like to see in patches and future expansions (preferable sooner than later):

  • Expanding the Racial diversity - allowing players to play some of the NPC races already in the game (ie like the Cathar in the trooper Story)
  • BH, Smug, Agent and Trooper available to both factions
  • Increased Reputation system tied to Morality Bar (make Light/Dark have some more substance to it)
  • Space game to more a Rogue Squadron/leader horizontal free flight
  • Ground and SwoopBike content (using the old space mechanic)
  • Open up the Worlds, so players do not have to follow the same path with their Trooper, that they did with their smuggler.
  • future VO Cinematics to have better acting  (play more like something out of clone wars, with more attention to animation detail).

This is in addiiton to some of the stuff BW already said they are working on.


I do not believe BW will be able to churn out content fast enough, to keep the VO's fresh and exciting.   Imo, the VO's will become stale quickly (which is why people are starting to skip them), which then turns attention on the rest of the game.

That's really all that needs to be said.

You forgot the most important thing. It's by far the most professionaly made MMO next to WoW. It's the main reason why WoW has so many players and why SW got so popular.
People get quickly tired of half assed games where a huge part of content is direct insult to ones' dignity. And market is flooded with such games.

TOR got so popular because of it being Star Wars. Not on any merrits that the game offered.
People get quickly tired of easy mode MMO's and like you said half asses games. TOR is well made, but I could train a pet monkey to play the game.

personally I'm waiting for the youtube vid 'chicken defeats jedi'

Lore Nerd: "Well in the Delorian system there's a special breed of poultry obscurely referenced in one of the few Image comics that covered the adventures of Abalini the Jedi sorceress that were quite a fowl and very dangerous beings to many a brave Jedi."

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

Shooting up the place
Where The Old Republic makes the flimsiest attempt to break the mold is in its combat design: a very traditional click-to-activate ability system that borrows heavily from the big MMOs of recent years. It’s enjoyable enough to play with, and has a few nuances, but will ultimately leave MMO vets with a sense of déjà vu at a time when most are eagerly looking for something different.


to me in a game like this especially at end game MOST of your time is going to be in combat unless you just really like to craft. Seems this should drop the overall into the 80s alone let alone warrant a 93.. but I guess people like more of the same for whatever reason. What bothers me is thats ALL they really have ot say about it when it happens to be one of the biggest portions of the game.. They also are critical on PVP yet the score does not reflect this either

I think that after I play the story thro there isn't much holding me there.


The PvP seems clunky and horrible, I'm probably sick of global cooldown on every ability, seeing the damage come of and then wait half a seccond doing nothing just bores the crap out of me, raids I cant be bothered to put the time into it, something I just done to much and I'm burned out of.


I'll take the game for what it is, a good enough story, worth the 33quid I payed for it definitly, but subbing for it? So far nothing indicates that, unless the open world pvp that the SWTOR fans like to hold over GW2 fans heads is something amazing there will be nothing holding me here

To me it feels like a mixture of a MMORPG and an ofline RPG.  Yes it is a "WoW Clone" (Im using that term loosely), it has battlegrounds, dungeons, raids, blah blah I think you know where im going.   But for me the big difference in the game is the dialog, to me those little cut scenes keep me intereested in the lore and story, as well as Star Wars, I love TOR setting. 

Pretty much every other MMO has bored me by reading quests or if I didn't read it, I'd just skim it and never get into the lore and mindlessly kill stuff.   I wouldn't feel like I'm part of the world, but in SWTOR I feel like I'm part of the universe, interacting with NPC's and such. I Personally think its a step in the right direction for MMORPG's.   

Time will tell if the masses think this is a good game or not, I know a lot of people are bored of the same old same old, I pretty much gave up on MMO's for a while when FFXIV tanked so  the genre feels a little refeshed to me.

The thing is the game is not bad at all, it just left to many dissapointed ppl who didn't get the killer feature they thought BioWare is going to put in there just for them. And besides, what would trolls do if they found themselves without any cannon fodder? They have to piss on random things, cause it's their e-peen in question.

Riiiight like we don't have valid points just because you and your friends bought the game and decided you liked it even tho it's more of the same crap we've all seen before and doesn't have staying power.

I think i will start compiling the features list of the games that actually will be next gen and will actually have staying power and compare them to SWTOR to show people like you just what you will be missing. :)

Who has to miss any other game? IF other games release and are more interesting to those people they'll migrate. If not they'll stay, which means they won't be missing anything.

I love to pvp because it's fun to fight players. Couldnt care less about politics and I absolutely hate arenas because it puts people in small boxes. I just like to fight people in games, mostly people from the opposing faction(s) and as random encounters or dedicated world pvp, is that really so hard to accept?

I'm not saying they got it all right or that they didn't reuse some of the things other mmos introduced before them, what I'm saying is this game wasn't build for niche, it's build for general public, same as any other AAA title, which means there's gonna be a lot of things experienced gamers learned to dislike over time, but some of those things proved essential for luring in the "casual" gamer.

It's wrong to call this another WoW clone or to even compare it to WoW, as this game wasn't build for the same public. Just because it's MMO it doesn't mean it's targeted at the general MMO population and that's something we as MMO population have to learn to live with.

And as far as comparisons go every single game I saw here was compaired to WoW, but I don't see people compairing WoW to Anarchy Online for instance, as that game came out before WoW and imho still has better gameplay and mechanics, but it's not WoW, so it's not relevant. I get that, I played wow also, but if I compare a game to WoW it would be only to describe some aspect of the game to someone, not to bash the game. And the thing is I'm not doing that cause "WoW >> all" I'm doing it cause everyone played WoW, so they are more likely to know what I'm talking about.

Am I reading right "that bad"?? What is bad? Swtor is incredibly fun and incredibly good, beyond any of my expectations! Actually there are, IMO fo course, only 3 games, mmo or not, that deserves that upper case in Game. Wow, Rift and now Swtor. But, and I'm wow fan, so far swtor is best ever at least for first 11 levels, where I will have my 4 alts.

Why do I need to read complaints when I've already seen it in action, played it and enjoyed it?

Tae -People need to get better internet connections? Get better computers?

PvP feels 100% responsive and not at all clunky to me.

There is a global cooldown delay that is DIFFERENT than the GCD in WoW (omg something different then WoW no way!) but once you get used to it, everything is beautifully fluid and solid.

I actually love the PvP because it feels a lot like WAR did, in that it takes more then 1.2 seconds to kill someone you actually have time to react and change tactics and adapt, you know, the SKILL part of PvP.

But at the same time where as WAR had like zero balance and like Rift was freaking God Awful - TOR the balance seems really, really good.

I've rolled someone 1vs1 then they turn around next time we meet and roll me 1vs1 and AGAIN the 3rd time it is a close and epic fight with a exciting finish.

So much different than WoW where you knew that if you were playing X class and you were fighting Y you'd lose 90% of the time, even with better gear.

I'm getting stomped by people lower level than me or stomping on people higher than me, all variaties of classes are either whooping my butt or having their own asses handed to them.

It's SO funny people complain complain complain about imbalance and OP classes and gear > skill, then someone like Bioware goes and creates an amazing PvP experience and people still complain complain complain because they don't have any skill and are so used to overpowered FOTM classes and gear supremecy.

My only concern is that at end game gear will matter a LOT more then it seems to in the level up PvP.

I've probably been lurking for way, way too long.

Yes nothing is wrong with this game it is perfect it even has ability delay that's what makes it perfect.

 It's a lot of the same people. Call them the disgruntled minority. Minority because most people don't give a damn either way and certainly not enough to go running around trashing something as trivial as a video game.

The game is bad, when put up against even measured expectations for the game that should have been.

It's pros? It's Star Wars. Some of the game zones are huge. In depth crafting system. Light Sabers. Story Line.

It's cons? Too many to mention, but cheifly: The game is boring, with too many time sinks that make the boredom terminal; The opening 10 levels are horrible, more time spent running too and from than any other action, poorly designed starter areas; Quests are nothing special and almost always fail to live up to the potential the storyline associated with the quest promises; PvP is very unbalanced, made worse by faction imbalance and the lack of level tiers for battleground PvP. (Queued PvP was already on life support, but today's nerf to XP for the losing side is the final nail in the coffin); having to visit a trainer every level, to buy slightly boosted versions of skills you already own; etc...

It's an unimaginative, design by the numbers AAA MMO, which has actually stepped the genre back a couple steps by returning to an emphasis on annoyingly boosted time and money sinks. The factional imbalance just makes things worse and may be what drives away players who might otherwise survive it's many other flaws. (As MMO history has shown us, the dominant faction has more fun and for a bit longer than the under-dog faction, but eventually the lack of a viable and numerous base of opponents ruins the game for everyone).
