OP  7/30/12 2:46:05 PM#1

Hey guys,

Just thought I'd let you all know that me and a few friends have re-rolled republic and toons and are having a blast.

Basically me and my crew are late 20's with "real" jobs and busy lives, however, we are able to find a couple hours each night (usually quite a bit more on weekends) to quest, run some operations, and PvP a bit.

I guess all the beef with this game comes from the hardcore gamers (which I am not claiming to be). But as far as a casual gamer is concerned; this game has everything we need. We're leveling multiple characters concurrently, and really enjoying the content with each. We find it a great way to actually "hang out" with each other given that we are living in different cities etc.

In any event, I know this game takes a lot of heat on these forums, so I wanted to get a positive post out there.

A positive post on anything here is a good thing. Something tells me, though, that the overall thread won't be positive.

If you are having a blast, then why aren't you playing it now? :P

 

It's a somewhat decent game for the box cost, but the whole monthly subscription didn't feel worth it in the end.  Enjoy your time, level up, do some flashpoints, and then when you all hit max level, watch the whole idea of setting nights aside crumble.

 

Because there wasn't much to wake you up thinking, "I can't wait to log on", after the initial thrill is gone.  It's just another MMORPG, although this one being a co-op MMORPG, filled with phasing, instancing, and more separation from players and a believable game environment than any other MMORPG I've played.  Oh yeah, the engine blows chucks, as you will find out, unless you play it on a computer with a mega-watt power supply rating (get a new air conditioner too, cuz you'll need it).

 

And then there is the customer service .. type out a nice long ticket about what error happened and why you need help / reimbursement, and get a nice short response asking for the same information you already provided .. or just get a ticket response that has nothing to do with what you complained about.

Agreed.  Give this thread a couple of days, and I can guarantee there will be several posts attacking the OP or the game, and possibly at least one troll.

Since when is Tuesday a direction?

I don't understand all this hate.

I am glad though to see positive post. I personally enjoy the game, playing if from early access and never got bored. 

This game deserves some positivity it. From many posts here you would think that it's terrible game, but it's not. It's a great game and it's a lot of fun especially if playing with friends. Give it guys some credit.

 

Glad you guys enjoy it. Have fun.

If he and his friends enjoy playing the game, good for them. I ll be honest, it kept my interest a few weeks too. The best part of the experience i had was playing with my friends too.

I loved it until I hit 50. But once there the game, for me, just fell flat.  I tried rerolling to do another story but I couldnt catch the same joy I had the first time through.

I wish there was a way to expierience all the classes stories without all the mmo crap (kill 10 rebels ect...) each time ;D

Its a great game for casual friends to kill a little time with. Me and a buddy of mine played about a month or so basically Co op. It didnt last long for us due to the many problems with the game.

But glad you are enjoying it.

Who gives a crap. If you looked at his history, you would have also seen that the majority of his posts occurred prior to Launch and then there is a 6+ month gap. Whats wrong with him posting his impression after all that time?

I did say "re-roll". Meaning, at launch I played Imperial and recently made he switch to Repub. And we are STILL enjoying ourselves. Great game.

I don't know why people are surpised, a know a few that are still enjoying the game greatly.  Most aren't able to be hardcore players anymore, and I think that is what many games go towards.  If you burn through the content in a month, thats your issue.  Some people take 3-5 months playing in Skyrim, others take two weeks.  Who's fault is that.

This is essentially the crux of why there are so many disgruntled ex-players. Yeah the game is fun while you level. But then what?

The end game is so shallow it isnt even funny. It is just like a solid single player / co-op game with a cheap dungeon / raid grind tacked on at the end.

Naw I don't play it now because the game sucks.  I'm playing F2P Aion currently and having a blast, because at least NCSoft knows the value of a quality game engine.

 

And your comment about me are unjustified .. I took 3 months to get a SWTOR toon to lv 50 .. is that hardcore?  Yeah I didn't think so either.  This game flat out sucks, the game engine is super-sub-par, the customer service at EA reeks, and the retention rate is very, very low for me and my (former) guildies.

 

The story was good though, but uncontrollable cutscenes should NEVER take precedence over quality gameplay, UI customization (last patch was a joke), and BASIC interaction between the player and the game .. and the player with other players (also a joke because of all the mouse and interaction bugs .. middle mouse wheel?).

Ultra casuals with short term memory loss. I'm not meaning to be insulting either. TOR, compared to most other MMOS and I'm even talking about WOW and it's clones is a very easy game to play. If people that have very limited game time can stretch the leveling out long enough to forget most of the repeated side quest then they might actually have fun with TOR for months on end. Months for them might be like days or weeks for the more 'hardcore' gamer.

If someone comes out claiming they play at least 15hrs a week and played that since launch then I might call BS. I can't imagine anyone going over 15 hrs a week still dedicated to this game.

I really enjoyed this game until late April. I think it was about then that I could no longer ignore my injury.

Story ---- A- Very fun to play alts, and encourages you to do so

Combat ---- B Again playing different classes enjoyable because of this

PvP ---- D The first run at pvp was enjoyable, the changes and grind added destroyed it for me. I loved playing alts and there absolutely was not enough time anymore to pvp all of my toons

 

Lastly 26 Keybinds for my main class and it was called easy.. fuck it, I ACTUALLY have an injury since February because of the class I played lol, and it's not going away.. surgery might be needed.

 

i want to love this game again :)

I'm not sure what you're trying to get at with that statement. But you are correct.

I did say "re-roll". Meaning, at launch I played Imperial and recently made he switch to Repub. And we are STILL enjoying ourselves. Great game.

 I think what he's getting at ferom your post history is you have little if any other MMO experience to compare sw:tor too?

Lets be honest you played imperial at launch, as did i and yes it was fun till the stories ran out at 50 at which point it became boring. Why else would you switch to Republic, you were searching for new content. Once you rach 50 in republic you will be bored again and no that does not make for a great game.

  EA/bioware dropped the ball in that they are not putting out any real new content for the game. Thus those that play more will eat through the content faster and be bored sooner, while those that are more casual will eat through content slower (paying ea more money all the while) But the ending for both is the same. Boredom when the content is finished and theres nothing new as Bioware is effectively laying off most of its developers/designers due it the games poor retention. Don't expect much new anytime soon if ever.
