It's not written by Bill, it's written by Mike.  I have no idea why they make it confusing by never letting the authors post their own articles.

The common thing in every swtor thread is there is a bunch of complaints and humor to make fun of the game. Look at the MMO fanbase :).

When you purchase anything from the in-game store, be it some sort of item or unlock it actually generates an item for you to consume. This item can be traded amongst other players via person-to-person trades or the auction house. There is a short cooldown before you can trade the item, though. This is implemented as a security measure.

What game are you talking about Mike?

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.

Well if it was a single player game and they would have made the companion system better, like it was in Mass Effect 2 or Dragon Age Origins, I think it would have been a really good game.

But as you say, it fails as an MMO. Both because of the solo/instanced feel of it but also because they had to cut corner because it was supposed to be an MMO. So basically it's a lose-lose.

That being said I will not play the game when it goes F2P. There are single player games which are better than it and there are MMORPGs which are better aswell, so there is no real reason for me to play it. And although I like the SW setting I wont play a game just because of it. It has to be worth my time as well and SW:TOR is simply not good enough.

The point is that it makes no sense to push F2P when your servers are going to be down on the F2P release date which is clearly zero insight on the developers part. 

Ironically this is why this game is F2P.

I will check it out on the 16th and pick up my story line again barring the action bar restrictions. My characters are in the 30's and if I can make it work with 2 action bars I will give it a go.  If not I will uninstall and never look back.

Well, I for one am looking forward to getting back into the game for a little bit. Re-subed for a month yesterday. I don't think it will ever have enough going on for me to treat it as along term sub option but really enjoy playing it for a month or two at a time. Looking forward to rolling a new toon and seeing all the new little people running around and spending all my coins on crap I don't need and regreting it afterwards....But that's afterwards :) MUHAHAHAHHAHA!

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

11/14/12 4:15:13 PM#28

I got to say when I read "a solid game" I just about fell in the floor.  WE obvouly not played the same game.

As far as free story yest, but free to play players only get 2 character slots.  Not to mention all the roadblocks they put in the way.  It is not even worth coming back with my level 50's as they all had purple gear, guessing they will be naked now.

Solid no,  shallow yes.

It's a solid game. As in when you pick it up and throw it out the window on fire it's pretty solid. But no it's not that great to play.

This F2P model looks like a possibility though. It might almost be as exciting a player-done economy as SWG was. No, actually now that I think about it, it won't be like SWG's economy at all.

Back to Planetside 2 while taking a 'wait-and-see' approach to SWTOR (again).

Sub-fee was the problem with SWTOR.  Now....could you PM me photos of the punched kitten..cause I don't believe you. : )

While I love the game, their implimentation of FTP is about how they've run the game since it first went live, a running joke.

People will log on, find out they have to play the game with their left nut in a vice, and go back to their OTHER MMO. I mean seriously, you have to PAY for your quick slots? REALLY? When this launch fails, they should fire the guy who stood up at the meeting and laid out this plan, because he has absolutely no clue how to make money. from a paying public.

Maybe they think because their are no other Star Wars games out there that people will play regardless of the restrictions. Obviously they failed to learn the lesson they should have learned which made them HAVE to go to FTP in the first place.

I for one enjoyed the game, but after a couple of months did not want to pay a sub with so many FTP titles out there.  I am definately coming back, and may even spend a little money here and there.  I like to solo mostly, so this kind of game is right up my alley.

yeah but i bet you if they reduced it to $5 a month shitloads of peeps would sub..i know i would..has everyone has said before this game is not worth $15 a month or £8.99 in uk money.its an ok game but its certainly not worth $15.Rift is a way better game than this and if you sub for a yr you get that for £70+ the expnsion for free.works out at about £4 a month for me.

All right; I might give it a spin by the end of the week, although it might have to stand in line behind EQ2 and GW2. I also looked at the website for how this affects the legacy system, and no information was immediately forthcoming. I'll check the f2p matrix now lol...

Final straw for this game. Don´t think it will work, unless they announce some completely NEW game features tomorrow too.

Where are the mini games? Where are planet revamps of these static, lifeless worlds? Where is a real JTL type space sim for god´s sake? What´s with the slow, zero physics speeders? What´s with the 2006 graphics and blurry textures and exhaustion zones?

Now it´s the same ol´ same ol´ things nobody was overly excited in the first place. Plus a cash shop tacked on.

I say "meh". I´ll look again if they announce an expansion, some day, if ever.

The only good about this failed project is that more people are waking up to what a MMO should be... and shouldn't.

Solid game? C'mon now...

If Mike can't even bring himself to admit the UI limitations are a bit much, I'm done reading anything he writes in the future.  I hope he's a volunteer writer because he doesn't have the "critical" part of critical thinking.
