How can OP say post stuff like that have 1.5k posts and still not been perma banned? Maybe my 4 year old cousin could make so useless assumption. Swtor is the biggest mmo fail in history.

I soooo wanted TOR to be a good game. enjoyed it for about a week before I got bored. GW2 is not even close to boring me.

The one thing I hated about TOR was how empty the cities felt. GW2 feels alive, and I dunno, I just really enjoy it 100 times more than TOR. It being FTP is a big bonus.

Sorry to ask for clarification here.  You say "It being FTP is a big bonus" Are you referring to SWTOR's new payment model?  Or did you mean Buy to Play, the GW2 model?

He's taking about how he likes GW2 100 times more  than TOR because it (GW2) feels alive. So he means it (GW2) being FTP (BTP corerction) is a big bonus.

By the way. Isn't TOR actually going B2P as well and not FTP... if we want to be completely correct here and all. I still believe if you want to keep playing the game you still need to purchase the box. So that's B2P. A F2P game would be League of Legends for example. But there's so much confusion and mixup between those payment models that I have stopped caring about people using the wrong term for them.

It's going F2P. You don't have to buy a copy of Swtor to play it when it's changed.

Really? And do I get something more than others if I go back to the game? I payed for the game and 3 months subscriptions.

PS: I'm not really going back, don't have the time to play 2 MMO's.

You see this guys? This is how you make a successful baiting thread. All you have to do is wait for the mods to go to sleep and then have at it.

I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

uhg do these posts never stop ? does anyone dont get tired of these scrubs making posts like these all day long instead of good informative posts ?

last 100 threads are all GW2 Bored already, GW2 No endgame, GW2 WvW Suchs, GW2 Only sold 2 million, GW2 wasnt 1st with DE, GW2 worste laucn ever.

Dude go do something with your life, we know not all people like GW2, its ok we know, we dont need 50 million people to play our game.
Servers are bombed already.
Go do something with your life before you die.

Try to feel happy inside, instead of waisting internet space with these useless posts.

how many people play swtor from all who bought it? why is swtor going F2P?.....How many people keep buying GW2 after launch?, How many people keep buying Swtor after launch?...

 

Talk about something else...

Really! Yes the sold 2 million copies and they balanced the servers very well. I had a buddy of mine try and buy it the other day and couldn't. Anyone playing a failed game like swtor is a loser.

Well Capt Obvious,

This was never a question, anyone who follows MMO's already knew this.

TOR probably sold less than GW2 for launch

 

first 3 days, EA reported over 1 million

http://www.swtor.com/info/news/press-release/20111226

 

after 5 weeks, EA financial period ending Jan 31, 2012

http://massively.joystiq.com/2012/02/01/ea-reveals-swtor-subscription-and-sales-numbers-beats-financial/10

EA has reported sales of more than 2 million units of The Old Republic with about 1.7 million subscribers

 

after 4 months, EA reported 2.4 million units sold

http://m.ign.com/articles/2012/05/07/swtor-subscriber-base-shrinks

As of the end of April 2012, 2.4 million units of Star Wars: The Old Republic have sold through.

Will not.

Let's wait and see for how long GW2 "..will continue to sell actively and consistantly.." The real question is how many players will continue to be active 4 or 5 months after purchasing GW2. This is a figure we will likely never see, for obvious reasons.

Haha, no keep it. Biodrones vs Arenadrones? Dream match up, two of the most fanatical fanbases going at it. OP made the fatal mistake of posting this in the SWTOR forums, he shoulda posted it in the GW2 forum, thats where everyone is at.

Initial sales doesn't = successful game, it just means it was a successful launch- keeping the playerbase after the first 6 months is what matters, and SWTOR isn't cutting it.

Congrats SWTOR only required:

2.5 times longer, a STAR WARS IP,  probably 10 times the marketing budget and the lack of presense of any major competition for months to reach the same sales as GW2 achieved after 2 weeks.

And only about 8 times longer to get 0.4 times more than GW2 now has too.

properly the exsact date can be found somewhere with some research. But it looks to me that in this topic, both game did amazing well in the first month. Can we leave it there ?

 

 

 

Guild Was sales have passed the total sales for SWTOR for the same time period...  They have so far sold more in less time.  By the time they are 6 weeks out from Launch they will most likely have stayed ahead of what SWTOR sold.

OP, I am one of the many many fools who believed the hype over SWTOR and pre ordered what I considered to be a game I would play for years.

A couple of months after launch, I like many many other people cancelled their subscription which is now the reason SWTOR is going F2P in record time for a AAA MMO.

SWTOR was such a disappointment, I will never pre order an MMO again but will rather wait a few months to make sure I will never be bitten in the backside like I was with SWTOR.

A friend last bought it for € 9,90 with a free month to try.

They'll get new customers ..... at that rate, if they can keep the price down.

So OP...  Thank you for pointing out that GW2 has sold more than 2 million copies in three weeks and it took SWTOR a minimum of 5 weeks to get there.
