All that hype about FTP and they fall on their faces again. I feel like I'm at launch all over again...

'Today’s server maintenance has been extended with no ETA. We will update as soon as we have more info. Thank you for your patience.'

Its been a nearly year since release and this game has not changed.  Still full of bugs,

lifeless worlds, Atrocious endgame,Illium world pvp went the way of the dinosaur, Still no

cross server warzones after 1 year of complaints,  1 min plus loading screens.  Its an

embarrassment to modern gaming.  They need to buy a dump truck and throw all their

servers in it and all the harddrives with swtor server data on them  and go out to the desert

dig a big deep hole next too the old atari ET cartridges dump that shit in the hole, then light

a fire and bury it forever.

i would let EA take away every form of instanced pvp from my game if they allow me to do dungeons and raids as a free player. I dont care about instanced pvp so i will not be paying for that game if i cant have raids as a free player which i saw they locked us out of it unless we sub....

when i start feeling locked and blocked from progression as a free player ill uninstal it. 

i support companies through cash shop when they care about me as a player which is not the case here.

This is a pretty baseless statement.  Look at LOTRO for example they have yet to merge servers, they still have a very healthy active population, they continue to add expansions (just launched a new expansion this month and its very good).  So LOTRO started out p2p and now is healthy and active as f2p. 

Vov.

Look at Alganon ,it was also p2p when it came out,atleast i think it was,anyways look what happened to it?

Difference between LoTRO and SWTOR is,LoTRO never was a failure,actually in many sites it was considered as one of the good MMOs out there.

No update on Ilum or world PvP.  Yawn.   I'll probably try the F2P just for a few class stories I suppose, but I'm not going to pay for a game that has such terrible PvP.

A companion to resemble HK-47?

This is where Star Wars just gets even more stupid. Seriously...

SWTOR: Every Smuggler must be ruggedly handsome, fly an ugly, yet fast ship, and have a wookie companion....     because Han Solo did that.

Even the redundant catch-phrases make me feel stupid, e.g., "I've got a bad feeling about this".

Han Solo was frozen in carbonite. Since that happened, let's plant a ton of random NPCs that are encased in carbonite...       how iconic!

 

I used to be a huge Star Wars fan. I know SWG had its problems, but at least I could somewhat be myself. In SWTOR, I'm nothing but a page turner. boring.

Honestly the worst MMO I've played.

Got the e-mail newsletter with this article at 2:42pm, which means that it is FTP right now. If it works out, they are going to have to expand the servers back out from what they are now to at least double. Servers were crowded yesterday before shutdown and crowded now. Cartel market place seems easy to navigate with everything broken into like 8 catagories such as cosmetic and consumable and such. Costs of everything seem kinda low to me from the costs of thins on other FTP games such as LotRO, but could be just me. Also if the lowered the sub price to what LotRO did with the yearly deal of $119.88, basically $9.99 a month, they might get a new influx of subs. To be quite frank, this has only one way to go if they keep adding content and more stuff to the market and that's up, since it basically already hit bottom.

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.

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!

Quoting Obi-wan Kenobi - You all should go home and rethink your life.. and I wish I could use here the Jedi mind trick...

 

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

I only use two action bars at 50. My two side bars only contain stuff like speeders, pets, buffs etc. You certainly don't NEED more than two but the extra ones do help.

Buffs and speeders are part of normal play.  See how long you can play the game without the side bars at 50 and get back to me.  Until then, you aren't making an informed decision.  My 50 Sith Assasin used the side bars a lot.

Whole lot of people getting this glitch.

'You have reached the maximum character limit. To create a new character you must delete one.'

Problem is, we don't have ANY characters to delete so we can't make one!

Go EA GO!

Lol, show me a game that gets published in 2012 and onward that doesn't gain and lose a million plus subs that starts on a subscription model, and I'll show you a game that doesn't do enough marketing of their subscription model up front.

 

First off, learn the game business, noob.  It's changed around you and you are still thinking it's about the fans. EA sold their boxes and moved on.  EA was very sithily happy with their revenue.  Now they will tempt a bunch of those accounts back with cartel coins.  SHRUG.  In that sense they believe it was a solid game.

 

As a fan, *I* believe it is a solid game, and so do more players than play many long lived MMOs on the market that have run for many years.  I am playing the game and will continue to pay sub.  It's good storytelling, I like the community, I like the crafting.  The end game sucks, and I don't care -- I'm not a raider -- you don't have to play my game, and I don't have to play yours.  

 

That's what the market is about.  Go find a game you like.  Go find several, and play several. Enjoy!

 

That you like Mountain Dew and I like ginger ale doesn't  mean that ginger ale is bad soda.  It means you have different taste (and probably different neurochemistry) than me.  It means that you are vulnerable to a whole different set of marketing messages, and you are probably younger, maler, and think you are far cooler than I am, amiright?

 

I really don't mind.  But I kind of mind that you think you're so right about it.

Tp all those who are posting comments about how crappy SWTOR is I just have one thing to say to you. If you think you know what makes a better MMO either make it or please stop posting comments on a game you dont play. I dont go to Guild Wars 2 and start trash taking it so please dont come here to do the same.

"Possibly we humans can exist without actually having to fight. But many of us have chosen to fight. For what reason? To protect something? Protect what? Ourselves? The future? If we kill people to protect ourselves and this future, then what sort of future is it, and what will we have become? There is no future for those who have died. And what of those who did the killing? Is happiness to be found in a future that is grasped with blood stained hands? Is that the truth?"

I had actually forgotten entirely about the game up until now. Since it's F2P now, I'm going to actually try it. Heck, I might even spend some $ on it if I like it enough. It's good to voice your opinion with your wallet, if you got anything in it.

I'll give it a try for the low price of free and some of my time. I don't play MMORPGs every day, infact some weeks I don't even play games. Limits that refresh weekly shouldn't be a problem for me at all. Inventory space isn't really an issue unless the game gives you a pack full of quest items. I can play solo and like to play solo most of the time anyways so chatting and other social functions aren't very necessary to me.

I'm really kind of excited to finally play the game.

I played WoW up until WotLK, played RoM for 2 years and now Rift.
I am F2P player. I support games when I feel they deserve my money and I want the items enough.
I don't troll, and I don't take kindly to trolls.

Check out STO, then you'll see what F2P actually is. A store that has nothing BUT vanity items and certain unlocks that are account wide and permanent, not unlocks that you have to KEEP buying and buying if you wanna do anything on one char.

For no particular reason, just for my own curiosity, how much much do games review sites depends on revenue from advertising large title games to stay running?

Im all for F2P and B2P model but I now come to a standard I have come to judge all F2P and B2P games vs GW2. SWToR is not free enough. Its still a 14.99 a month fee to see all content. GW2 is free to see all content. Now the kicker, what do I have more fun playing?

I was in beta for almost a year and player SWToR for 6 months after release. 2 months into GW2 and I am loving GW2 10 x more. QUESTION!!!! What reason have Bioware given me to come back? There is no risk free mythod to see if end game has been fixed. Im not sinking 14.99 to try it even for 1 more month. If SWToR took up GW2 B2P model I would come back!!!

@akiira69: So unless I make my own car I can state what I think about a car? Or any other product for that matter? What ever!!!! SWToR F2P model does not reflect current standards. 

@Krayus: You hit the nail on the head, STO, GW2, Forge, Neverwinter and I could list many more coming out over the next year thats offering a real F2P, B2P model. BioWare has failed to see again what its gone take to make a product that stands up to current trends.
