OP  4/26/12 3:21:34 AM#1

As part of this week’s The List, we took a look at five of the most awesome aspects of Star Wars: The Old Republic Update 1.2: Legacy. Today, we’ll be taking a look at the opposite side of the coin and highlight a few of the worst aspects of the update.

BioWare has been aggressively courting both current and former subscribers with a number of initiatives, but the latest promotion was handled quite poorly. In order to celebrate the launch of Update 1.2: Legacy, BioWare announced that their most loyal subscribers would be awarded with 30 days of free game time for their dedication to the game. If this sounds like a great promotion it’s because it is, in theory. The problem was that BioWare defined these most valued or loyal subscribers as players that had level 50 characters, dividing the community into the haves and have-nots.

Bravo! Excellent write-up. As I saw a few flaws as well. The 30 day act of extending your sub hurt a lot of folks. I talked to several folks who, even though they had the 6 month sub, did not get the extra sub just because they did not have a 50. They did have however, a lot of alts close to 50, but some were crafting or evaluating each race/story to see what they really wanted to stick with the most!  My wife was one of them; I had a 50.... just  who got an extra 30 days.... 


 


Thank you again for your reviews

The Legacy Promotion was restricted to 50's because of the lack of things to do at 50, so its a bleed issuse.  They didn't tell people the pvp stuff wasn't going to be in the update until the day before.

Its hard to get behind a game when the company running it is so shady and underhanded. If EA treated their customers with a little bit of respect, I think it would be better for the long term health of this game.

As to the legacy unlock feature, another example of the author wanting everything now.  Having to work toward's any goal is too much work I guess for them.  The idea is to keep people in the game playing and having goals to reach that cannot be immediately satisfied.  Basically the author should be abashed they even mentioned this topic.

It sounds like they have good ideas but they fail in doing it right.

As far as the want somethign now mentality, and working for a goal, I play games to have fun, if I want to work I got college, a career, a family, plenty of stuff to have to put real effort into.

The republic armor sets are very ugly, comical even. I have never seen worse in any game. The cost of everything in the game is horribly overpriced. I remember getting 800k after questing through Voss and Corellia, thinking I was super rich. Then I went to pay for training and I was broke again.

I wonder if Pokket is still doing those runs on the livestream for SWTOR.

I defended this game for too long, I have finally given in to the fact that SWTOR is not what it was hyped to be. It's not eben half that..

You forgot avout how they promised more crafting recipes and only delivered like 4 of them and being able to reverse engineer oranges items to get recipes off and well I could go on and on but Bioware doesn't really care.

It's good to see MMORPG actually saying something negative about this game,  I did defend it for a wile but truth is it was all hype, Bioware failed to understand what fun endgame is and brought nothing new to he genre

I was really hoping SWTOR would do well, ok so it wasn't SWG but it had $200 million in development and all of the power of BioWare behind it.


The beta left me really disturbed, but I refused to let it get to me: most betas have glitches, it's no biggie.


But I just can't handle it, SWTOR's bad voice acting, comical artwork, and zero-zip-nada original content just leaves me reeling. During one week I actually played realmofthemadgod.com (a cheesey free 8-bit pixel game) more than SWTOR, that's when I realized maybe a free browser game is better then SWTOR despite all the millions they poured into it.


Here's hoping SWTOR pulls through. Although I'm not counting on it.

Is for anyone with a level 6 legacy, not just for the 50s.
