F2P is not always a short lived endeavor.  Some games do quite well after trasitioning ot F2P.  Not sure your comment on DDO, but I really enjoyed DDO, and LOTRO is still a fantastic game, even with being F2P.  Of course LOTRO is not a TRUE F2P as is still has the option to pay the same 14.99 a month and get unfettered acess to the entire game (minus any expansions you have not paid for) and a stipend of points to be used to buy store items each month.

I got a good 3 months out of the game, more than i thought i would.  Wasnt a SW fan to begin with so i figured id dislike ti after a month.

If they made endgame PVE easier to get into...normily i dont mind shouting LFG or LFM but for some reason it was impossible to get a proper group even when the fatman server was jam packed with endgame characters...

If they fixed ilum and gave me the option to only pvp in huttball (possibly the best incarnation of BG CTF in any mmorpg....i knwo most wont agree with me here but i absolutely loved huttball)

And if they possibly added more levels, some more planets without a linear path like the origional content was.

Add 2 new classes.

If they did all this i would seriously consider returning...though i wont be looking for any other game for at least the next 4-6 months.

 

I left the game burned out, sick of all the pvp queueing for battlegrounds i hated, and sick of fighting to find a group in guild and pubs...when finally i get a group the instance is boring and buggy.  I did leave on good terms, there was a lot about the game i did like.

 

Not sure where the game stands now, havent really followed it since leaving.  There was a lot that needed fixing however.

The LOTRO model sounds good... but I was looking into AOC and it looks bad... and DDO seems overpriced since the new Underdark expansion came out. The latter comes from customer accounts. Someone else said here and I agree, that the game should be buy to play, (you buy the box... no item shops or other fees... KOTOR 1 style.)

For me, I think the very core of the game's design is broken beyond repair. Total lack of customer respect and broken promises on the few they have made, along with the game is just fundamentally bad gives me little to no hope. My wait and see approach is hoping they do the humane thing and put it out of it's misery and some other company that actually cares about it's products and customers pick up the IP and make a game deserving the name Star Wars.

Regarding your signature....Repopulation is a SWG clone.

/chuckles

My signature? Clone? You not read what my sig says? It says "this is a clone free environment". Now if you will, click on my sig and do a little research and tell me where the cloning is. You'll find some simularities to SWG and that is on purpose but not a clone at all. Come back and reply to me when you find the cloning in case I need to rewrite my sig.

/chuckles? Like you think your insulting me bring up SWG. The very fact The Repopulation is bring back some sandbox has me doing /halleluyah.

Why so defensive bro? you think you are the only one following repopulation? and yes it is SWG clone thatis why i found your signature very ironic. 

Also do some research about Archage, it is not just Repopulation that is bringing back sandbox. And what does 'bringing back' even means? sandboxes didn't go out of development and we had some recent release. Now if they were not to your liking that is another issue.

That's cool. I personally put the game try-able at maybe like Update 2.4.

GAME UPDATE 2.4: FREEDOM

Patch Notes

Planets:

-All exhaustion zones have been removed from planetary areas.

-Fixed a design mistake where factions could not play together on planets.

-Introduced Day/Night Cycle to planets in addtion to weather.

 

The Fleet:

-The Hutt Cartel has destroyed the Fleets. All vendors and entry points moved to the capital cities.

-Certain Flashpoint and Operation entry points are duplicated on different worlds so that both factions can group up for Flashpoints/Operations.

 

Vendors:

-Many NPC vendors have been removed from the game.

-Vendors that remain can be killed but doing so flags that player for PvP.

-Vendor respawn time is now randomly set from between 20 minutes and 2 days.

 

Crafting:

-Armormech, Synthweaver, Armstech, Artificer can now make any schematic into an orange through progressive reverse engineering allowing players to use all of the item appearances already in game.

-Cybertech can now also craft multi-person speeders, as well as components for speeders such as armor plating, turbo pods, and directional vanes.

-Level 50 crafting materials now have a quality score that combines with the quality score of subcomponents to determine final quality of items.

 

PvP:

-All planets now contested between Sith Empire, Republic, and Neutral factions. Players controlling a planetary base and two checkpoints will claim that world for their faction.

-Players bounties now work correctly, and can be taken out on a player of any faction.

 

Classes:

-Bounty Hunters, Troopers can now use any non-lightsaber weapon without loss of abilities or penalties to damage.

-Smugglers and Imperial Agents can use any non-lightsaber weapon except for Assault Cannon.

-Sith and Jedi characters may now use any lightsaber type, or melee weapon without loss of abilities or penalties to damage.

Honestly, not really.

As much as I like Star Wars, I also am well aware that when you buy games based on the IP, it's a total crap shoot. Star Wars games have always been extremely hit or miss, and there's still around a ~50% success rate for the franchise.

On top of this, EA has pretty clearly stated that they no longer give a damn about this game. I haven't seen anything from EA, either, that leads me to believe that they are a studio capable of providing the kind of constant support that an MMO really needs. Their entirely business model is based around churning out the same crap over & over, rapid-fire selling, and rolling onto the next project. Simply put, they don't seem to have any interest in long-term projects. They want stuff they can sell quick, make a quick buck, and then they're on to the next thing. They got into SWTOR, because they saw a big cash cow. It turned out to be a not-so-big cash cow, so now they are looking for the next big thing. If SWTOR does manage to somehow turn itself around and become a good game, I'll definitely consider going back. However, that seems like a bit of a pipe dream atm.

Also, consider what's coming down the pipe. There's about a half-dozen AAA MMOs coming out within the next 2years or so. That's an insane amount of games, some of which look pretty damned good. I just don't see SWTOR being able to fend off that much competition, and as soon as EA realizes this (if they haven't already), you can expect to see your already slow progress on the game being slowed to a snail's pace. Updates will be just as lackluster, but probably will take twice as long,

I see posts like this as that Last Breath of a dying fish.

"I'll come back for 1.5, I think the game might not suck then."

Have fun with that, throwing your 15 dollars at a company that truly does not deserve it. 

Game'll still suck.

I'm wating for them to actually fix the game.  No arbitrary patch number will pique my interest.

No arbitrary patch number is going to make this game worth coming back to. It might even be beyond salvage.
