OP  8/07/12 8:53:00 PM#1

Dear ToR players,

I'm a fan of the Star Wars franchise, I'm a fan of Bioware's classic games (Baldur's Gate, KoToR, Mass Effect, etc.), but I seem to not be able to hold my attention on ToR.

While I wait for GW2 (apologies in advance, it actually seems like a solid game), I decided to try the free version of ToR, but even then, I couldn't bare it and actually wanted to just play Aion.... I so want to like this game.... :(

Here are some reasons I'm not enjoying ToR.

1. Game pace feels slow or disconnected.

2. Game doesn't feel immersive. I feel the levels or maybe character placements or maybe character animations aren't as well designed. I just feel "disconnected" from the universe.

3. I dislike its combat system. There's no auto-combat, making the combat feel repetitive (e.g., press 1, 2, 3, 2, 1, 1...) and not fluid at all or intense. (Maybe I'm missing something?)

4. I'm not in it for PvP, especially with a combat system I don't enjoy.

I only played to level 10, as a Republic Jedi Knight. What are things that I could look forward to? What draws you to the game?

Thanks!

 

Hopeful ToR player

Well, if you want intense combat, play a Sentinel or a Marauder.  Combat gets more challenging around the end of act 1.

Generally, I find ranged classes to be a bit boring in comparison, especially the trooper/BH.

Slow-paced gameplay seems like a strange complain, especially at level 10 when you haven't had to deal with the massively oversized planets you contend with once you get your ship.

SW:TOR's gameworld really isn't very immsersive, and it tends to only get worse later in the game.  The only advice I can give you is to watch every cutscene and try to get drawn into the storylines.

I got this but others won't.

 

Anyway: OP even though I don't play anymore one fun element was engaging multiple enemies at the same time. Try a jedi shadow. It's not as much of a jarhead like the knight and stealth gives you a few more options when I comes to combat.

There is NO miracle patch.

95% of what you see in beta won't change by launch.

Hope is not a stategy.

the OP is asking WHY he should play it..... I would rather give him reason to not want to play it.It left a sour taste in my mouth.

all because bioware pays you to advertise their game does not give you the right to try sensor a negative comment about a product.

i have to give a reason why it is crap???? pvping was impossible for some. Major rubberbanding and it was entirely their fault not my hardware/internet or anybody elses.

Thats been fixed since launch??? GREAT!!!!! but who wants to follow a company that releases a game in that state? With that kind of budget??

Don't force yourself to play a game. What I quoted is a prime reason for you to stop playing. Any game you feel like you have to come to a open forum and say "Make me wanna play this game" is one you should bow out of and find something that you will enjoy. Gamer life is to short. Play something you enjoy on a personal level.

If you're unable to like something on your own, how is someone else convincing you going to work?

 

In contrast, I absolutely love Eve's concepts, the universe, the sandbox, the spaceships and the general idea.  But that's just it, I love the "idea" of Eve but I've since come to the conclusion (after playing for over a year collectively) that I just don't enjoy it as a game.

 

That seems to be the case for you with ToR.  Just because you like Star Wars and even older BioWare games doesn't mean you'll like this title.  And for the record, I loved the older BW titles too, but I can't stand Mass Effect or Dragon Age.  ToR was no exception there.

I heard that drinking bleach can cause brain damage. You might want to start there...A ball peen hammer might be a good second choice if the former option proves ineffective.

asking for help isnt a weakness, refusing help when you need it or not asking for it when you need it are.

Apparently stating the truth in my sig is "trolling"

From what I've heard, the force user class stories aren't very interesting compared to the bounty hunter or smuggler ones.

Also if you are playing SWTOR right after having played another themepark MMO you probably will have a harder time getting into it.

That's not even half-true.

I've been playing Jedi Sentinel for the past 2 weeks and it's as "intense" as Sith Sorc.

And how can you say combat gets more challenging? Mobs just hit a tad harder than they used to at the beginning, it's not like they would suddenly have intelligent AI, tactics or challenging new skills.

One of the things that TOR actually does well IMO is provide opportunities for the player to create his or her own challenges.  The basic pulls are pathetic, but there's no reason you can't go after higher level foes, engage champions, or try to run heroics or flashpoints solo while they're still worth XP.

 

Depending on the player, I think TOR's simplicity can actually work in it's favor.   It's easy to pick up and has a very low frustration factor (although it can be both boring and annoying).  From what I understand the community, such as it is, also places a much smaller emphasis on player performance that exists in many other games.  As a sort of "MMO kindergarten" experience, there's room for the new player to learn basic MMO gameplay while asking little enough from him that he won't feel bad about moving on.

 

If you're used to more fully-featured MMOs, however, if you don't like the story and the setting isn't doing it for you, then you're pretty much done; that's really all that stands out about the game for players at that level of experience IMO.

Thanks for trying to help, Everyone! As a Star Wars fan, I was really rooting for this game, but it doesn't look like it's for me. It's kind of heartbreaking, really. :(

Thanks again and happy gaming!

This. I'm a Star Wars fan too but I have not enjoyed the majority of the games based on that IP. If you're having to force yourself to like this game, then it simply isn't for you. And I say this as someone who enjoyed his time in TOR.

If you're not enjoying it, don't play it.  Try it again at a later time.

If you are not enjoying it play Skyrim instead and then try Guild Wars 2 when it comes out :-)
