wish I could enjoy this game... tried coming back 3 times.. tried playing like it was just a single player game.. tried everything.. i just can't find a way to force myself to enjoy it... why try and force myself? it's STAR WARS obviously.. i'm as big of a star wars fanboy as they come which makes not being able to find any enjoyment from it even more depressing...:(

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

I'm more surprised you left then that you came back. You seemed to be rather enamoured with the game before your break.

It maybe nosy, but why did you take a break?

Fell free to tell me to mind my own business.

A friend (the same I played to 50 with in SWTOR originally and tons other MMOs) got me to start up FFXI at the announcement of the new expansion coming out. Stayed there for two months and we both quit after that. I took a break from MMO's period the last month and got the itch again during the month hiatus. My long time co-op partner said he doesn't have time for MMO's at all anymore, but I found my guild there waiting and seems like things are picking back up from where I left them without a hitch.

The game is good for a few months, and even at the start it was all postive with review scores at 8-9.5 / 10, but then after people played it for a few months that is when all the negativity started, as the game is a MMO and not a single player game.  If the game was a good MMO people would not have quit, which resulted in it going F2P

I bet a lot of people were really just waiting for F2P as opposed to "listening to the haters", and the constant drops in population (1.7 million to 1.3 million to [500k to 1 million] subs by EA) spoke louder than any negativity from "haters" and if so then those comments are being taken too seriously.

If the subs went up instead, I bet they would have played sooner.

If they started playing at F2P, then they will probably quit too in a few months, although If they are playing the game for free, then may play it longer, as costing nothing to play, and the restrictions slow down progression, but it still does not get the revenue that EA needs.

After playing Dragon Age again, it plays the same as SWTOR but without a monthly fee. Both DA and SWTOR are good, but DA wins as does not have a monthly fee, nor is restricited in any way, or better yet just play KOTOR.

If each class had their own side quests, then it would have been better, but once you have done two chars cobvering both factions, then a 3rd char is replaying 90% of the same content, and when you have to pay for it, it makes the sub fee too much, so hooray for F2P, where you can level up new toons in your own time, without feeling you are paying to play the same content.

Even if you like Dragon Age better which is a legitimate opinion, its like comparing apples to oranges. The games are barely  alike. Does anyone have any clue what this guy is talking about?

SWG and SWTOR is like comparing apples to oranges, but SWTOR and Dragon Age is like comparing Red Apples with Green Apples.

SWTOR is the same game as Dragon Age, but SWTOR is a star wars sci-fi setting, and Dragon Age is fantasy. They both have story and dialogue choices, and companions.

Mass Effect is the same, and even closer as it is sci-fi based and the ship travel system is very similar too

I only said that DA / Mass Effect is better than SWTOR as it has a monthly fee or restricted F2P. If you take away the monthly fee or do not care about it, then all games are similar. SWTOR is bigger but its content is mostly copied and pasted whereas everything in ME and DA is all unique

SWTOR is not like any other MMO at all, and the quests you do are set to your own class, whereas in other MMOs, you can do practically every quest in the game. In LOTRO as a hobbit I could do quests on the elves side, plus the worlds are more explorable. SWTOR plays like Biowares single player games, and not worthy of a monthly fee, especially after a few months.

Oh dont listen to him. Two glaring thing show what he is 1) His signature 2) His post history. He was wasted over a year bashing Swtor a game he doesnt play. When it 1st went f2p he posted the servers will be dead in a month. Well three months in servers full at peak times and after the next update and then the expansion the servers will still be healthy. He will just come up with some other excuse beside the truth that a lot of people enjoy swtor and it will be around for a long time. He usually just copy/pastes from other haters unfortunately this site does not do much to weed them out, but when you call them out watch how you do it cause they are quick to pounce on those that do.

SWG and SWTOR is like comparing apples to oranges, but SWG and Dragon Age is like comparing Red Apples with Green Apples. SWG IS CLOSED ITS DEAD MOVE ON!!

SWTOR is the same game as Dragon Age, but SWTOR is a star wars sci-fi setting, and Dragon Age is fantasy. They both have story and dialogue choices, and companions.

SWTOR is bigger but its content is mostly copied and pasted whereas everything in ME and DA is all unique.  What is copied and pasted?  Im sorry you really should give some examples of your bogus statements.  DA/ME dont have OPS, Flashpoints, World Bosses that take 8+players, GTN (thats an auction hall for you since you dont play SWTOR), datacron hunting that some take more than one player to get.  I have told you multiple times why SWTOR is an MMO but you dont listen and just copy/paste your same garbage. 

SWTOR is not like any other MMO at all, and the quests you do are set to your own class, whereas in other MMOs, you can do practically every quest in the game. In LOTRO as a hobbit I could do quests on the elves side, plus the worlds are more explorable. SWTOR plays like Biowares single player games, and not worthy of a monthly fee, especially after a few months. First your main complaint about the Expansion (look at your history) was its not continueing the class story line.  Now SWTOR is not an mmo because each class has its own class story line?  Make up your mind.  And just an fyi anyone can help others in their class story, can you do that in Mass Effect or Dragon age?  Nope you cant.    

Oh for the love of god dude just stop with the hate towards SWTOR.  The game is fun a ton of people are enjoying it as an MMO and a very good MMO!!

I am also back to SWTOR. Tried TERA-bad,  The Secret World, GW2, Path of Exile. Even re-subbed Wow got to 90 and said, why am I not playing SWTOR?! It is clearly more enjoyable than all of these.

And yet soooo much repeat hate about SWTOR. The best news for me is I'm not listening to the haters anymore. I'll just enjoy my game.

Bye bye haters.

I'm also back and enjoying the game since it went ftp. Lasted  2 days at ftp before sub. I'm not a hardcore SW fan, even so it's a nice alternative to the fantasy games I also play. I like the cartel options allot of fun goodies. Zones have been packed and it's nice to see population no matter where you go. Wish the game continued success.

I have little problem with what they have in there, so it's always playable to me. I can just get hooked on a class story and keep on. And the combat isn't bad to me at all as far as your run-of-the-mill MMORPG combat goes. So I keep playing this on and off. It has some good characters in it and suspenseful, epic, funny moments.

What keeps bugging me is actually what they don't have in there. What they don't have in there happens to be a good part of what I'd like to see in a Star Wars MMO. Things like space exploration and trading, podracing, actual bounty hunting and smuggling, the option to become an outlaw with either or both of the factions, being able to get different abilities depending on what side of the Force you are (and how far - come on KOTOR had this!), some freedom in choosing what abilities you have and what armor and weapons you wield (KOTOR had this, too!), day/night cycles and weather system, atmospheric flight...

Playing Age of Wushu, I couldn't help but feel how well some of the features there would fit right into a Star Wars MMO. It has a working bounty system for Jabba's sake! And another system for kidnapping players!

Though of course, it is what it is now. I guess I'll keep checking in and playing now and again, all the while hoping for some smart moves that will make it feel like more of a Star Wars gameworld...

As I'll admit I'd still rather play this than most other MMOs out there at the moment.

maybe the game would appeal to me if i wasn't such a hardcore star wars fan hmm i'm not usually a graphics whore but really when you compare the game i'm currently playing to swtor on a graphical level.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cfs5hPhDkE8&t=2m10s.... again not trying to say game A is better than game B just have tried to rack my brain on how to enjoy this game but I hit a dead end everytime...  i try to keep out of these forums but seeing big old JJ getting the franchise going again got my star wars blood bubbling....

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

Well Aero maybe you just are more of a high fantasy person,over Sci Fi.Nothing wrong with that,I know I prefer high fantasy instead.

Or maybe try to just put Star Wars out of your mind and play the game without thinking about the lore (this may be hard to do).I was never a big Star Wars fan so it's been easy for me to get into the game and enjoy it,plus I'm seeing many more people than right after launch,it's a win win for me.Atleast for the better part of this year.

Some day I'm going to put a sword through your eye and out the back of your skull!

actually i enjoy sci-fi more than high fantasy heh.. but i have tried putting star wars out of my mind while playing but then it defeats the purpose and even makes the game feel 100x worse for me.. really at a loss.. oh well:(

I'm not overly knowledgeable about it but if they made the graphics specs higher wouldn't it raise the bar in terms of system requirements? Considering that one of the problems they were having was the small server populations I would imagine that increasing the specs of the game might not be the best move for the game in general.

A shame that they're still heavily favouring Jedi/Sith classes. After playing each to 50 (except the Vanguard/Powertech) before I left I got to notice the class imbalances. I guess it makes sense from a business view that you would please the larger player base at the expense of the minority, it's just a pity for those who prefer to play non Jedi-Sith classes. Though I also suppose it makes sense from a lore perspective if the Jedi/Sith are stronger lol.

well if they had used a better engine or at least better version of the one they used that wouldn't be an issue.. there are tons of games out there MMO or not that look WAY better than swtor and run at much better fps. Granted when i played fps was never a big issue for me overall.. but i have a pretty decent gaming setup...

Funny, that was my experience with GW2.

Really?  Really?  Really?  I think thats exactly what you're doing.  Nothing wrong with that, though.  I think SWTOR is better than GW2 because I have much more fun playing it.
