Star Wars: The Old Republic goes free-to-play beginning tomorrow and we've got a couple of reasons why we think you should check it out! Read on!

Sure, outside of the free-to-play stuff, Game Update 1.5 isn’t exactly meaty. However, 1.5 is significant in that it adds HK-51, a new companion clearly inspired by HK-47, everyone’s favorite mouthy assassin droid from the Knights of the Old Republic RPG series. HK-51 is acquired as part of the new ‘Section X’ content coming in the update. Section X is a new area on the planet of Belsavis and the quest content found within will continue SWTOR’s overarching storyline centered on the Dread Masters.

The estimated 1.5 million who have dropped this piece of trash disagree with the author's opinion that this is a solid game.

Uhm I read this article expecting to roll my eyes, but I am pleased to learn the Cartel Market is tied to the ingame economy. How does this work exactly? I am not sure I could stomach the game still with all the "story" but I like it when f2p choses this kind of economic implementation of the cash shop currency, so I'll probably check it out if only to see how it works in SWTOR, while skipping as much of the "story" as possible.

So.  Can you at least comment on the items they are selling that you think go overboard?


What are your opinions of them locking the side action bars, which are pretty much necessary after level 30. 


I've never heard of a company gimping the UI for a F2P game.  Can you atleast call them out on that?

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

It's a solid game.  It just fails as an MMO.

Now, if SWTOR had been released as a single player game, I am pretty sure many of the complaints people have about it would disappear.

Since when is Tuesday a direction?

I am personally looking forward to getting back into SWTOR. To me its not worth paying 15 bucks for simply becuase I am not huge on raiding. However I will sub again if they add some real world pvp content. I am looking forward to finishing my BH story though.

Scoobin it up on the daily.

If I hear one more time that the "sub-fee" was the problem players had with SWTOR I'm gonna punch a kitten in the face.  Seriously, that is the biggest bunch of BS.  How about starting with something like game performance?  Is that improved?  I seemed to have an awful lot of lag and drop in fps for game that's so heavily instanced.

After them wanting me to sub to get the "free coins", I will never even try the game. What a crock. I guess it wasnt enought I spent $60 to buy the game and another $60 on subs.

lol, if the sub fee was the problem then why is their freemium designed to force players to sub?

So solid games lead to multiple head dev staff quitting/laid off , the company distancing themselves from even mentioning it in finacials anymore when once they were saying it would challenge WoW, and the further train wreck that was and is SWTOR?

Solid game indeed. Especially that Iluum 100 vs 100 large scale battles they promoted pre launch , solid as it gets.

Yeah, I have to agree. Subs were not the problem with SWTOR, at least by themselves; it was what they purchased, and that was very flimsy indeed.

The way they've implemented F2P is terrible, but I'm going to try to come back anyway. I did enjoy the game reasonably well for the first few months before ultimately getting tired of doing the same things over and over. Anyway I need a break from grinding gold to buy exotic gear that is soon to be worthless in GW 2, so I'll see if there's any fun to be had in this game again.

You know, I have to wonder that if this game is so solid, why isn't the author pushing people to subscribe instead of F2P?

A lot people have opinions and expectations.

They hope that devs will listen to them and create the impossible.

I take it as what it is now.

I canceled my account for nearly 3 months due to my favorite hate list of things i really dislike.

I thought, other games do better for my taste, but i missed multible buttonbars, pots, stims, keybinds, äCtion ..

Yeah i know, my hatelist .. remember skilldelay ? ... My lousy dualcore ... omg, now i have 8 cores AMD and penis grafix card, 40+ fps in WZ, but still .. my hate list, the targeting, lagspikes, stunwars, redundant look and feel and i really dont like questing that mutch ..


Enuff reasons to cancel again, but its Mary go arround, no button choices in other favorite games, just a few to smash, less tactics in my decisions, you can say what you want, but the PvP in SWTOR is awesome ... if it works like it should ... beside of the "new" resolve, and, and ...


Age of Conan combat and PvP is still a little bit better, but SWTOR is SciFi at least and has factions ^^

The F2P model is somewhat too restrictive for me and it may be designed, to make people subscibe but there it is again, my own expectations have been different, so what ... i take it as it is.

Its a good game for me ^^ 7/10

Bill Love most of what you write and MMORPGFTW. BUT! after reading that I'm kinda lost on what game your playing.

I will return to Tor to play the story thats it.

With current restrictions for the F2F (free 2 fail) model I can't even see what they were aiming for its not like we are going to get "hooked" and dish out tons of cash.


Most not all but a very large group thats going to play this as f2p are returning players some new.

We didnt like what we were paying for so we stoppped making it f2p with a ton of "buy now" crap in it will only make it that much more of a  NOT so solid title. The game itself falls so short of even the lowest standards I can think of.



Bill for you to even state the game is Solid and worth another look after all the info thats out there or even on this site puts my faith in you as a writer for this site in question. [mod edit]
