It really depends on how you define "play." I will probably fire it up every once in a while and level a character up to 50, especially if the legacy perks make it so I can skip a lot of the non-personal story quests. I might even do some warzones or an occasional flashpoint. I would equate that to how I might play a single-player game or a multiplayer console game. 

Will I "play" it like an MMO? Absolutely not. The game world just doesn't have the character and personality to make me want to log in constantly, live as my character, or form lasting social connections with other players. I also almost certainly will not pay a cent for it since I won't care about how my character looks since it is just some meaningless avatar and I am not lazy so I don't need convenience items.

I still have nightmares of pressing the space bar over and over again till my thumbs bleed. 

When i hear cricketts in the bushes around my house, i have horrifling flash backs of empty uninspsiring zones.

The very word Hutball gives me instant headaches.



no amount of F2P will ever make me replay that horror..

The way mmo's were: Community, Exploration, Character Development, Conquest.

The way mmo's are now : Cut-Scenes,Cut-Scenes, solo Questing, Cut-Scenes...

This is what the analyst fails to comprehend (especially based on his part comments). You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. All of his views are based on a mindless player base, which MMORPGers tend to be a little smarted about game choice than the facebook crowd. Obvisouly not smart enough to keep from falling for the initial SWTOR hype but I think smart enough to avoid being fooled twice (especially considering the EA ftp, pay to win method).


This is what's wrong with the MMO community. People think its impossible for anyone of intelligence to have a difference of opinion or perhaps like something they do not. It's not a matter of intelligence my friend. Some people actually like different things. For instance, I live in Baltimore Maryland in the US. We are known around the county for our seafood, most notably the blue crab. I don't eat seafood. Can't stand it. But I don't think there is anything wrong with the folks who do eat it. Even though I don't like it, it's ok that they do. And it's preference and has nothing to do with intelligence. I can come up with a comprehensive list of why I don't eat crabs, such as them being the ashtray of the ocean, etc.. Means nothing to those who like them. Get it?

Well lotro wouldn't even let you do a freaking quest for free. Of course you left it with a bad taste ha! These ftp restrictions appear to be some of the best in the business. I voted yes but it would be rarely.

I've played it for long enough already to know that it's not my kind of game. Making it F2P doesn't change that fact.

+1 I'll feelings linger for me, f2p can't fix that for me.

I played the game in Beta, and found I had no interest in something so shallow. Even if they paid me $200/month I wouldn't go back.

Singleplayer is, as Singleplayer does.

I'd play a few hours a week if they paid me too. I've done worse things with my time, for free.

I stopped playing SWTOR before my subscription time ran out. Going F2P will not fix what ails SWTOR and why I left in the first place. If I find a game not worth $15/month, it will not be worth my time even as F2P.

I'm n ot trying to pick a fight, but this game has the same "gameplay" as many other mmo's. There is nothing fundamentaly wrong with the gameplay. I'm no fan boy either, I played beta and was still playing after 1.2 . Personally I think a lot of people are waaay off base on their complaints about the game. I quit, just like alot of people did. The issues with this game we're minor. The problem with the game is that it's a dated gameplay model that no one is really into. Specifically, a game with said gameplay model that is just getting started. Server transfers, Ranked WZ, and many other features are expected part of the quaility of life in an mmo. I shouldn't be sitting on my hands waiting for these updates. I say, shame on EA for forcing this game out of the gate too soon.

No I will not be returning for the F2P launch. I Bought the CE (love the statue btw) played for a good month, got to level 43-ish and began to get that ol familiar feeling of gear grinding that I left in the dust over a year ago from WoW raiding. A grind that I did NOT feel like repeating (especially if it involved raiding) after doing it for many years.


Now I'm playing TSW and enjoying the break from raiding, although I'm getting a lot of the elitist mentality from players spamming AR and CP requirements to run elites and NM modes. But it means moot to my overall feelings about TSW because I will be making the jump to GW2 and that will be until the next mmo comes along and tickles my fancy. What can I say, I'm a fan of MMORPGs not a fan of a MMORPG.

Logic be damned!

8/02/12 10:25:38 AM#33

If I still had the game installed on my HD, yeah I'd probably log in and check it out if I was bored one day...

but since I will A) Have GW2 by then and B) do NOT have it installed...

Nope, not worth the time/bandwidth to DL all over again - even for a free game.


My biggest gripe is that the combat is just SO bad.

It's like WoW... but without any of the speed and fun.

You either have to A) use healing companion 24/7 or .... oh wait there is no B or C.

The PvE leveling up process is just SUCH a grind... I gave up on my Consular at 30 something and rolled alts for weeks before coming back and trudging through to 50.

And that's what it was... a trudge. The story barely kept me interested, the climax so disappointing... I maybe spent 5-6 hours at level 50 before I never logged in again.

I've probably been lurking for way, way too long.

Players come for the game, but they stay for the people- Most Devs have forgotten this.

A game that wasn't fun enough at £2.50/ wk to make me want to play it dosen't get any funner without it.

Honestly, that amount of money is no barrier to me playing a game that I enjoy right now, which I would be if SWTOR was actually what I was looking for.

I just never found it fun.


Sub or 'F2P'... it's irrelevant to my choice.

I got my enjoyment out of the game, but frankly I don't care where they take the game from here gameplay wise. I'm simply not interested in their story lines at all with the game so no reason to go back.

Fifteen bucks a month really isn't a deterrent from me playing a game to begin with.

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.

Why is it that fantasy trolls are vulnerable to fire, but internet trolls thrive on flame wars?

As long as I get to play as a Sith Pureblood or a Zabrak, I'm gong to play this game.

Since when is Tuesday a direction?

I might come back for the F2P model; strictly to finish the storyline of my 3 alts. It is funny that SWTOR is giving the best parts of the game for free (the story and voiceovers) but payment for the endgame stuff which had/has problems.
But with Guild Wars 2 coming out, and Phantasy Star Online coming out early next year followed by ArcheAge/Blade & Soul & Cat… I don’t think I will be putting in more than 2-3 hours a week for SWTOR. So one playing session per week for me.

Oh GOD I can't wait for PSO2, and I am giving some serious thought to buying Guild Wars 2.

In my opnion, its not F2P.

It is a freemium and you have to sub monthly to get the full experience.

Not worth the time.


By that logic I can only think of one, maybe two games that I would probably consider remotely 'free to play' then, and neither of them are MMO's. What do you really expect seriously?

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

8/02/12 10:47:16 AM#40

First off let me preface by saying this.  The exit interview was skewed when I took it.  I did tell them that the game was not worth the sub fee.  However they have translated that folks did not want to pay a sub. What I told them the game was not worth the money that is a big difference.

Going free to play fixes nothing other than removing the sub fee.  If they don't fix the problems that chased off many of their subscribers going free to play will not make them come back.  I think bioware is just blowing some up their own backside if they honestly believe that they are going to get back to the 2.4 million copies that they sold.

You have to fix content,  anybody who believes that bs that they are going to have content updates ever 6 weeks needs to have some kool aid.  They cant even do that now.

You have to make the game fun, you have to have a better end game, and you need dev's who understand how to optimize that stupid hero engine. They have to fix the broken flashpoints, and broken operations, broken quest on ilum.  They need to make a living breathing world.

Until they can do all that the game game be free to play all they want, I will not be coming back.  I will say this they though that moving folks to 18 servers was going to fix the problems that did not work, and neither will free to play, until they fix the underlying problems that made the game suck for so many folks.
