Personally. I wish they would just make this a single player game so they can actually focus on improving on the game itself instead of the d*mn pvp.

TOR would've been better off if they'd went the route of massive single player RPG with actually open terrain. Oh, and a engine not written by a group of mentally deficient chimpanzees.

the version, they use is the Alpha version, it isnt  ready for use yet

and it wasnt made to run a full game , only  to do short demos

so, theyre´basically trying to rebuild a lawnmower, to pull a plow

Think of it like a CEO would. Would you invest millions more into a game that has so missed the mark and already gone through massive downsizing? Probably not. 

 

Look at your own playing group or guild. Ask your friends who played the game at launch and about their guilds. I would venture to say that over 90% of the people you talk to already quit and would never come back.

 

As for "fixing" the engine. That's not what SWTOR's team does. They licensed the engine and use an unsupported version. They arent the creators and cannot service it themselves. They went against the advice of the Hero Engine team themselves and used a broken version of the engine and now they are stuck with it. Forever.

 

From top to bottom SWTOR was a massive miscalculation.

not true,,they did some things right, too

the companion system was the best part IMO..on par with the best in the business

the stories was mostly good, bioware quality

but everything else was standard, or below

Someone mentioned previously about the player limit per instance, it's 250 right now, I remember it used to be 350 and in the first couple months back in 2011-2012 the fleets easily had 2-3 instances.


But ever since then the fleet hasn't looked anything like this (Dec 28, 2011):

The game sucked. I wanted it to be good SOOO bad, but it was really, really bad. The end game was ridiculously stupid and simplistic. The community was full of WoWtards who switched over to be the new elitist asshats on the newest game. Leveling, outside of the class stories, was repetitive and boring. 

 

You can continue to claim your game isn't a coiled, steaming pile of crap, or you can admit it wasn't what it should have been, stop throwing good money at bad, and vote with your dollars, effectively forcing EA to make changes and stop bending you over with the cartel shop.

I don't recall anyone stating the game was amazing or the best MMO ever....what a lot of people are stating however is that they are enjoying the game for what it is and having fun. I am sorry you clearly disapprove of this sentiment.

Does the game still have issues? Of course it does, however if you cannot acknowledge the fact that the game has made great strides in recent months in terms of financial performance, content releases and a general more upbeat attitude in the game (I KNOW as I ACTUALLY PLAY) then you are simply a butt hurt troll who ignores anything that does not support his narrow minded opinion.

You clearly hate the game, more power to you, but really? Why do you need to be so venomous towards anyone that DOES enjoy it? That attitude makes YOU look like 10lb of sad in a 5lb bag to the entire internetz lol...what a tool!!

The truth is you are a little puppy who only feels validated if he is playing a game that the internet tells him he will enjoy rather than playing the games he does enjoy, or even thinking for himself.

Is SWTOR the best out there? No. Do I pity you? Absolutely.

Started playing the game again a few days ago after over a year playing other games. I was shocked to see that the game is not only well populated, but the majority appears to be subscribers at that.

Niche game? Sure

Failure? Not at all

That would be an accurate and honest appraisal of the current climate in game and as such has no place on this forum ;P

BWs metric even confirm that most of the CM revenue is coming from subscribers too.

But yes, I still play regularly and the post I quoted is certainly true.

I would encourage anyone to give the game a re-visit and see for yourself instead of taking the word of the same half a dozen posters on these boards who simply push their own agenda.

Add ship boarding and guild ships and atmospheric flight

plus get the day night change on planets going, trash the simplistic mount mechanics, those wheel chairs are outright embarrassing

And make the Space Casino work, Pazaak, Swoop Raging, Animal mounts, double size of the planets, smarter mobs, mobs on speeders, mobs doing stuff instead of standing around.

Add vehicle combat.

Or let SOE do SWG2

AMEN!!

I was looking for an answer, but alas, servers continue to die and no answers.

 

Last weekend was an all-time low.  1 fleet during primetime, even with the 150 player cap (instead of 250 player cap).  My server is personal.

 

I guess character transfers will help to keep 20% of the servers maxed out.  Too bad legacy transfers won't happen?  Or am I wrong about legacy?  I hope I'm wrong.  Then again I also hoped Legacy transfers were free since if was BioWare who told players to start characters on other servers when the population died last year.

 

/sigh

 

I believe you where looking for posters to be in agreement with you, you don't like the responses you got so you have labelled them as "Fans" thus justifying your original statement which really is a shame if thats how your trying to get your message across.

May I suggest in future that you need to backup your posts with actual verified information rather than anecdotal comments to drive home your points, that way perhaps you may be better recieved if things can be checked and found to be true.

As it stands SWTOR is still an active MMO, no more no less, there are many such MMO's out there that are in a very similar position, both have their pros and cons, yet they still manage to provide some entertainment to those players that have chosen to play them.

SWTOR and EA/Bioware have obviously let you down in some way, your frustrations would be better aimed at the relevant sources so that you can get the answers you desire, as all you will recieve here are players own answers, none of which can alter the gameplay for you, that is a design decision only the makers of the MMO are able to accomplish.

This sums the general attitude of SWTOR pretty well in a non-biased way.

I don't post in this forum often, but it seems this place is overflowing with negative posters that spend just a bit more time repeating there 'opinions' than what would be considered healthy IMO.

All of history is a lie. The truth depends on who does the listening, and who does the telling...

8/31/13 11:52:21 AM#294
 I must admit I didn't read through the pages of responses so I'll just address the question. I don't think it will recover personally because the F2P model they chose to use is so full of bottlenecks once you hit elder game that the game is unplayable to me personally. As someone who bought the game when it released, so many things were taken away from me that I feel should not have been imposed on people that have already supported Bioware through the purchase of the game. I decided to drop in and test the new setup of the game and must say I was so turned off that I couldn't even begin to invest time in the game. It's a shame to because I am bored and was hoping I could play the game again with the wife because she seemed to enjoy the story but the fact that she couldn't play any of the races we had when we bought the game turned her off as well.

It doesn't fail at being what it is. But it fails in general. The people playing are subbers because the F2P model is restrictive. I logged back in recently to see if the game was any different, but it isn't.

If you are waiting for a new gaming experience from SWTOR you won't get it. They will milk this thing up until and beyond the release of the new movies. I imagine EA will commission another game for the new movies but the higher ups will look at the current paradigm instead: F2P, Minecraft, MOBA, Silly art style.

Or they might get smart and make something that in 2015 resembles the images you saw in the star wars films.

they have the biggest IP

they spent A LOT of Money to make this game

this is the expensive Ferrari, that can only go 50 mph, and it doesnt even look good, while doing it

but its NOT a failure?

i guess, they designed it as a niche game, then, and the jokes on us

I guess you haven't played the game since the graphical update. They have implemented new tech within the engine that doesn't slow the game down. It's similar tech to the ones used in films ( movies ) to add colour to 600 areas of the game and it looks stunning.

Cheers,

Stop complain , it is a good game of course i would be happier if they made a kotor 3 with Revan again and his old crew , but the story , the character story still the best on market of MMO . They just need to make a space combat like in BF2 and add some more epic places(world map).

So BioWare did a great job plus EA gave them a deadline and that ruined the plans of BW .

What i see is that the game is slowly growing.

And i still hope that BW will make another KOTOR game with Revan.

lol not even SOE want's to do SWG2.  You realize that was a pretty big failure for them right?  The only reason they kept it going was to sell the SOE Station Pass.
