If ea had pumped a tenth of the money they put into swtor into war instead I reckon they could have turned that around and made it a good game. The engine is better, the combat is better, the pvp is infinitely better, the extras like grouping features and the tok were good. All it needed was better dungeons & crafting

No, nope, nuh-uh, no way Jose, negative. You know those super awesome interesting warzones? Oh you don't? How about those boring, frustrating, and poorly designed warzones? Yes! Those are the ones! Those are brought to you by Mythic's Gabe Amatengelo. He also brought Ilum's open world PvP to the game, you know where people stood around no PvPing? Then there is Jeff Hickman whom, if I've understood his position correctly, is in charge of those that interact with customers and the public. We all know how well the customer support is for SWTOR and I believe he also had a hand in the whole pre-launch queue debacle.

The mythic devs that made DAOC what it was are long gone, all that's left at EA are those responsible for the disaster that was WAR.

I hear ya. And it is hard not to be cynical about the impact of the masses on MMOs.

Nevertheless, I believe that hardcore MMORPG stuff is what people "really" want, they are just a bit scared of it -- they don't know they want it yet. It is the same reason that adults who for the most part look down on video games nevertheless find themselves playing Angry Birds. The game seems sufficiently harmless that it breaks down their inhibitions. Video games are inherently fun, but they scare many people for various reasons at various levels. But, ultimately, I think, what scares people about video games is virtual reality . . . a reality apart from reality. And to the degree that someone is devoted to "real life" is the same degree to which that person will be fearful of virtual realities (and thus, video games) . . . or at least that is my theory. Virtual reality is what makes games fun, but also what makes them intimidating to some people.

Now, in this sense, a MMORPG is the most hardcore video game there is. All other video games lead to MMOs because when it comes to creating a virtual reality, a MMO is supreme. What happened with WoW is that they took a MMORPG and made it less hardcore in order not to appeal to more people, but to draw more people in, to make virtual reality less scary to more people.

One very important and often overlooked way in which WoW did this was by using cartoonish graphics. Cartoons, for most people, equal "not real" and so the game looked more like a "game" and less like a virtual reality, thus drawing more people in.

Another way was to tell people what to do . . . i.e., quests. In otherwords, they hold your hand and assure you that this experience is going to be OK, you don't need to be so scared.

Socializing with other people through avatars is a perpetual source of anxiety for people who have not yet gone into the heart of what a game is about. You very often hear new players obsessing over the issue of gender, of whether that girl toon is being played by a male in real life or not. This is fundamentally a fear of virtual reality, and WoW got around it by offering a ton of opportunities for soloing so you could slowly dip your toes into interacting with other people's characters.

But in the end, these things -- quests, solo material, cartoonish graphics, etc -- are not what is making the game fun, these things are only there to get most players to relax enough so they can enjoy the actual sources of fun.

And that is where most of these new games go wrong. They are like a new roller coaster with super fancy seat belts. The safety features get more people into the roller coaster, but they aren't the source of fun. WoW introduced the safety belts, so other game makers assume that must be the key to a fun game . . . then they spend all their time on making great safety belts.

What was the first signal to you that this multi-multi-million dollar game was seriously flawed?

When I heard it was a multi-multi-mullion dollar game.. That means making investors happy instead of players happy, eh?

I can't explain why WoW has been so successful, but what I can say as a longtime non-WoW mmorpger is that since WoW's success, virtually every new game that I have tried has adopted this philosophy: that what gamers "really" want is to solo and to quest. Every one of those games felt relatively lonely and boring on some level -- to me -- and I wasn't surprised by the fact that all of them more or less failed.

 

Perhaps the reason so many MMOs are failing isn't because they fail to live up to WoW, but because they are trying to.

 

What I miss are the pre-WoW days where MMOs were more focused on player driven content. I think I could count the number of quests I actually bothered with in SWG, and yet the game kept me infinitely entertained. There is something about quests that seem so fundamentally artificial to me . . . the way they try to tell you that you are the most important person in the world while they are telling swarms of other players the exact same thing.

 

SWTOR just took solo questing to the ultimate level. If the game doesn't succeed, I think that alone is ample evidence that questing does not represent the heart of what makes a MMO successful.

 

Very very very True. I mean the solo thing is subjective but when you said mmos fail not because they didn't live up to wow standards but are trying to...that's so true best statement ever. Almost think you should write a book on it and I'm not even being sarcastic. I might just have to quote that. Least bookmark it. Your quote is far more related to mmos it goes for sports and other things.

I might get banned for this. - Rizel Star.

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

P2P LOGIC = If it's P2P it means longevity, overall better game, and THE BEST SUPPORT EVER!!!!!(Which has been rinsed and repeated about a thousand times)

Common Sense Logic = P2P logic is no better than F2P Logic.

It would be a lot more immersive and add to combat gameplay if they had a voiceover yelling "Body blow!" every time.

1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

the other big problem with solo gameplay.. for me at least.. is that its pretty damn boring, when you add in the fact that its actually difficult to find groups in SW:TOR, where you can be trying to form a group for half an hour or more sometimes, and still not succeed, i mean, people can run down WoW as much as they like, but at least thats one thing that Blizzard did right, i just wish Bioware had been paying attention to that instead of the Voiceover fixation that seems to have blinded them to serious gameplay issues..

You know what is sad? I have ran across more than a few in that game that simply say much as they like to group they simply gave up. Their view is simply why bother with it when it takes so long since you can just solo anyways? Can't say I  blame them.

They practically get a woody when myself or someone else gets a group together to do the heroics on planets.

When all else fails attack the OP.../facepalm

My point is that OP in here is just well... trolling?

If thats a problem to you, then don't feed the troll.  Move on and let people discuss why they hate the game.

Quoting only a part of my post and taking especially that part the counter attack me is lame sir. And if you give yourself the right to rant about the game, by the mighty first amendement, i officially here give myself the right to inform you and all the people on this forum to continue to express my problem towards people ranting about this game!

On this, have a good day!

Where to start...hm...oh, i know!

Character customization, i mean...so now everyone look the same.

Vehicles...What, i have to be lvl 20 to ride a bike? And BUY a bike-cert? Comon...

The ship...i got THAT multimillion credit thing at lvl 10, and needed no cert....well, right, i can never pilot it so i guess it makes sense...

Oh, and I bacame jedi MASTER at lvl 10 too! Amazing!

I could go on and on, but the OP asked for the first signal...

I feel ya, bro. Getting a group together in SWTOR is a nightmare.

They keep on saying 'Oh, we chose not to institute a LFG function because it was anti-community'.

Firstly,  I think that's a lie (they didn't do it because it required some minor but fiddly programming that they just weren't qualified to do or allocate resources to get some outsiders to do); and secondly, standing around with my thumb up my ass spamming 'LFG Black Box - Sorc Healer' for half an hour doesn't help community much and it certainly doesn't help gamplay.

I even found getting Flashpoints at my level extremely hard. It was idiotic of them not to implement an LFG function and, no, it didn' have to be as inane as WoW's version to work.

 Heheh I always thought it was hilarious that BW used the "LFG functions hurt community" argument and yet they have:

1.  Severe zone sharding to the point where many zones seem empty.

2.  Very heavy use of instancing in zones.

3.  What is essentially a solo storyline for each class.

Yeah...but LFG functions would "hurt" the community.  Right ;).

Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

1. When I realised the head of PvP balancing was Gabe, the same person responsible for the Choppa in WAR.

2. When I saw that expertise was far more overpowered than WoW's Resolve.

3. When I actually thought about it and realised that the PvP balance was exactly the same as WAR's "bad old days"

4. When I went to Ilum and saw people base flipping then after the patch, kill trading.

5. When a bunch of my threads got closed and I got infracted because Bioware don't like being told where they are going wrong.

6. When they seem to think a stupid Guild Summit will really appease the masses that are raging about there unfinished and quite frankly shoddy endgame.

 

Basically SWTOR = WAR 2.0 except this time it's Ilum instead of forts and city sieges.
