I fail to see the point... If you can offer a set of abilities that people feel familiar with why in the long tooth would you do a lot of wonky stuff with it "just to be different". Were i get my education that is called "art school crap" and widley regarded as a bad idea, never put form before function. And since it would not have finctioned better if it did +2% fire damamge and +3% electrict damage i fail to see how they woudl have made it different.. You need a main attac, a cone attack, a AoE attack, some form of self buff and so on and so forth.

 

But do elaborate please how you think that they could have done it better.

Why do games feel they need to be similar to WoW to be succesful? It's boring and old now and sticking a Star Wars theme on it won't change anything.

I know this may be hard to belive, but not everyone played wow for 6 year straight.

The unauthorized use or close imitation of the language and thoughts of another author and the representation of them as one's own original work, as by not crediting the author.

Nope just the majority of us MMO players we have either tried it and hated it or played it for far too long and burned out... most smart gaming companies would look to make a unique fun new exciting game and not a POS game like SWTOR.

People will either go back to wow or hate the game because it's similar to wow which = epic fail. Lets fast forward a few months and wait to see how NEW game should be (hopfully)

Rawr! It's too much like WoW!

Rawr! It's not polished like WoW!

Rawr! I'm sick of WoW!

Rawr! Why isn't this like WoW?!? (no one says that)

Rawr! I'm going back to WoW! (almost no one says that)

Really, these attempts at trying to dismiss SW:TOR critics as WoW fanbois are laughable.

99% of bad metacritic user reviews state that the main flaw of the game is that is too much like wow and that the players are getting really sick of that gameplay... and yet the good reviews keep repeating the mantra "wow fanbois unable to accept the change"

Jeez. The lead devs themselves said that any deviation from WoW's basic forumula is stupid. Well, there you go. It's not like we weren't warned in advance.

... as for the OP... Imo that's a bit harsh. Those skills are pretty staple - jumping at someone and stabbing and stomping the groud for aoe... I mean, beat'em ups have those. And boss fights?! I mean, really... It's not the skills themselves that are the problem but their execution. By this cheap shot you're actually hurting the case... though I do admit that the resemblance is.. uncanny, even down to effect durations.

One of the miriad reasons why I don't understand SWTOR being a nominee for Innovation.

I played it for 9 months four years ago and I still can't stand the look and feel of it. It's not that it was bad, mind you. It's just.. Old.. Neither here nor there. It's not actiony enough and it's not cerebral enough like in a turn-based game. I just want something different, if not better.

still this is like saying wahh this game as an ae taunt and a single tount too -  it's a wow clone ^^

 

all those are basically abilities 99% of all mmos share (and did way before wow was released) and i for one think that this has nothing to do with wow clone but these are all themepark games and therefor have a lot in common....wow did refine what themepark games had to offer back then but did a lot of polish with the ui, questflow/story  and the combatsystem (very much the first very polished & fluid mmo combat).

 

basically for the time when wow launched they well, added the most sense of story you would think is possible back then. swtor now basically did very much the same but today story in mmos is voiceover and more choices :)

 

swtor is still a themepark game and there surely are similarities to wow but i for one think that in the most part BW succeeded in taking the good stuff and refine it. be it the instances, the combat, raids and also pvp with tanks being well integrated is done well. also stuff like the legacy system is quite brilliant...rift has it's planar system but swtor has it for your all account finnaly making it well worth for twinkers also :)

 

i am happy to have a very solid sci fi mmo which has as much polish as wow but a little more depth to fill my themepark needs. after the years i am filled with fantasy stuff anyways :P
