The article reminds me of why people were fooled in the first place thinking this was a solid game. Sorry but making it f2p doesn't change anything.

Slightly less optimistic but fair :P

After watching this I will pass. I did a lot of work on crafting and not being able to use my purple gear is a big no no. Good Luck EA you will need it.

This game is still a solid game and I found more groups in world content in SWTOR than GW2 TSW or any other of these so called "savior" games that this community love to push in your faces. While this game has flaws with being linear , it doesnt at all change the fact that its still a decent game , just YOU do not like it. The OP and staff are right with what they say but some of you just refuse to say its not the game for you and move on instead of bashing the crap out of it at every turn because its not your precious SWG2 that failed right after release also btw.

It's worth trying out for one single reason:

Play at EA's expenses and show them that they won't get any money if they treat free players like crap.

HK-51 will be just as crappy as every other companion.  New tag name, new graphics, bout it.

 

If EA really wanted to impress gamers, they would stop what they are doing and add real stuff that fans wanted, like swoop racing, Pazaak/Sabaac, casinos, decent graphics engine, etc.

 

Adding more of the same isn't going to work.  EA wanted to "more than compete with WoW", and they just keep missing the mark.

Lol.  The game is free for you and yet you are still going out of your way to hate on it.

You aren't paying for anything.  Nothing.  Are you missing lots of features? Of course. But you can still play the base game for free.

good lord.

Yes it IS a solid [game] and the best part of the game, the class story, will be completely free to play through. That is enough reason to return if you haven't played through them yet. I can't say I'm happy with the restrictions but we'll see how bad they are.

Let's build the ultimate MMO 1 feature at a time

EA/Bioware is full of stupid.

Everyone remember the "missing" top graphics mode once it went live?  I remember it being called "a bug".

Downloading as we speak, very excited to get back to the mmo with the best story line, and F2P is great for medium core players

I agree.

Nobody forces you guys to try this game. You should be glad that BioWare is giving away for free the best part of the Game - the story.

Reading these forums sometimes makes me really sick. There is so much hate here that no wonder there is such a misery on the Earth. If mere game can bring so much hate...  Good Lord!

This is the entire reason I wont touch it.  Limiting the UI ?  Really?  I'm okay with some limitations but this is just ridiculous.  The slower leveling limitation irks me as well. 

 

But this is just an obvious tactic to get people playing, hoping they'll like it, and subscribe.  I barely even consider this a F2P conversion.

I played it for 2 months at release, I believe it actually is a solid game but its just not worth a sub, its about 8 years too late for sub pricing. F2P makes this a much more solid game, and if your actually into getting a little more engaged than your normal run of the mill mmo then swtor may be a good fit for you.

 

Not to bad for all the critizism I have given this game in the past, F2P can change my perspective. My combat medic and my Jedi Consular I had suprising become rather fond of. Good ole WoW pulled me back off, as well as Rift, but F2P may pull me off of GW2 now for a bit.

Smart move SWTOR

He's right, it's a solid game, just like WoW is a solid game.

 

You may be burned out on the WoW model, but that doesn't mean it isn't a solid game.

 

Just saying.

Why don't you try leveling a character using only 2 action bars.  See how long you last before giving up.

It's not a F2P conversion, it's a Freemium conversion.

 

It's aimed at nickle and diming cusomters so they will no-longer play. and EA can get out of the LA contract.

 

If EA can get out of the contract, then can stop losing money.  Because this game loses money.  500k subscribers gets the money back, per THEIR statements.   Less than that and they need to tank the game.

 

The F2P (Freemium) game was made unappealing.  Oops.  That's how it goes.

outdated graphics plus terribe UI makes this game unplayable, not monthly fee.

Jesus, the reaction to this article is startingly negative and expected.

 

People are bitter because A) The sheer hype this game had and B) Becuase it's Star Wars, and every one expects a godsend of an MMO (Which hasn't happened in any genre in nearly 8 years).  The leveling was fun, I got farther in this than in Rift (Level 42 vs. 21) and I've been playing MMO's since the inital release of UO (How I hate to use my experience as a testament but it's fitting regardless).

 

SWTOR isn't a bad game, it never was; It's the expectations that have been set by this community (The same reason the bashing of GW2 is never ending). Sure, it may of been unpolished in some areas, but does anyone remember the first few months of old MMO's? Absolutely terrible, yet we talk about them and cling onto them like they were somewhat of a saint among a dying genre.

 

Personally, being sick of all MMO's at this point (Can..not..stand..quests); I will still return to SWTOR tomorrow and see where it takes me - whether it be a day, a week, or an month. Expectedly, I'll play a day and be sick of it, because let's face it.....

 

We want SWG, UO, AC, AC2, DAOC, etc

 

Still doesn't make SWTOR a bad game.

It is a solid game when you lower your expectation I quit in Feb after the whole Ilum revamp being fail,   I returned last month not expecting SWTOR to be this uber awesome open world pvp game that shot lightning bolts from its ass and cured cancer and was quite surprised at what great fun I'm having.

 

The hype machine killed SWTOR not the game.

I'm bitter, because TOR could've been an award winning game, but EA wanted the monthly fee (and agreed, TOR is not a bad game, it's 'just' a bad mmo)

I'm bitter, because f2p conversion can revitalize games if done correctly, but EA didn't change anything in the game, just put a cash shop in it to milk the existing subscribers a bit more. It was the last hope (lol) to put TOR on a right track, and they missed the chance.

I'm bitter on comments 'now people can try out the game for free' - newsflash, people had that option already with the 1-15 trial, and check how many subscribers that brought... And it was an unlimited trial, with the full, actual gameplay, not the restricted one EA now make (hello hotbars, no mails and trading, walking to everywhere, etc.)

 

As Frodo said "Why don't you try leveling a character using only 2 action bars.  See how long you last before giving up." I did that in every mmo that went f2p under me, just to have a first-hand experience on the restrictions. There was good conversions, and a few bad one, with AoC as the worst (they also made it only to put a cash shop in-game, like EA). I think TOR's f2p won't bring in new subscribers either, only a few previous subscribers who loved the story enough to give a try to these restrictions. But with the cash shop, it will generate a few extra bucks from current subscribers, so they achieve at least this goal :)
