Hey guys,

I'd like to do a forum experiment on some of our most trafficked forums. This will be simple and straightforward. Below, you'll find a set of basic questions that I'd like you to answer (copy and paste the questions as is into your reply, retain all formatting, do not add anything). This isn't a discussion thread, so responding to other users' responses is not allowed. These posts will be removed.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:
Of course, it was star wars.  What kind of self respecting nerd wouldn't get excited about it? :)
 
Do you currently play this game?:
No

If yes, please explain why:
 n/a
 
If no, please explain why:
From the perspective of an MMO it was a pretty big let down (if it were a single player game it would rock). Where do I start with all the issues I had.....I will keep it short with the biggest ones I guess.  The worlds were extremely linear, you could barely walk two feet outside of town before hitting an exhaustion zone.  There is zero incentive to explore (aside from datacrons that everyone googled anyway).  Worlds also felt dead, NPCs just stood there and did the exact same thing 24/7.  The only people you could even talk to were quest givers.  If you turned up your ambient sound and turned down your music you heard....nothing.  Maybe the occasional bird chirp and hum of machinery.  Story decisions didn't matter at all, you just started looking for the white or red icon, and to make matters worse if you paid attention to the story some of the light side/dark side choices just felt backwards (maybe I am just a deeply disturbed individual).  Mirrored classes for both factions, where is the fun in that?  The game just didn't FEEL like star wars.  I know that's a hard one to quantify, but the game just failed to capture any of that magic.
 
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:
Not really playing any MMOs right now.  A little bit of DDO every other week, and I have been playing more Minecraft lately.
 
What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?
If I post in a thread it's because I saw the thread title in the tracker on the main page and it caught my eye.  Deep down though I post here because I have this hope that their devs lurk these forums trying to get feedback in an unofficial way from the playerbase and actually take these things back to Bioware and try to make the game better.  I really want it it be a good game.
 
Thanks for your responses! Remember, please just copy the above questions and answer them straightforwardly if you'd like to participate in this.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Was interested because it was a high-profile release (EA Bioware, LA, huge IP, arguably the most expensive game ever made), was not interested in playing it.

Do you currently play this game?:

No.

If yes, please explain why:

---

 

If no, please explain why:

I stopped playing mass market themeparks years ago.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

I play only one MMORPG at a time, currently it's Wurm, since 3 or 4 months. Full sandbox experience, no quests, no developer-made story, more to do than combat alone. Terraforming, creating my personal space, building and crafting, contributing to the village and the kingdom, keeping my region of the land safe for travellers.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

Posting rather infrequently on this particular forum, have made maybe 7 or 8 posts here. MMORPGs are one of my hobbies, I find it interesting to see how high-profile releases go and what games can draw a mass audience. And - in the case of SWTOR - I have to admit a bit of Schadenfreude is there too.

(Many people enjoy a good trainwreck so now and then. I'm amongst them. Sorry.)

I maintain this List of Sandbox MMORPGs. Please post or send PM for corrections and suggestions.

If yes, please explain why: I enjoy it.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?  I find myself having to defend the game from particular trolls.

Do you currently play this game?: No.

If yes, please explain why: N/A
 
If no, please explain why: I tried it and had some fun for a month or two, but the game is very linear and feels like a co-op RPG as opposed to a full MMO.  I cancelled my subscription when I realized I was only playing because a friend was and was not really enjoying myself anymore.  Plus that damn droid on the ship talked too much.
 
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:  I'm not playing any MMOs at the moment.
 
What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?  I post here infrequently because I think the damage has been done and anyone who said they'd "tell you so" doesn't get a lot of satisfaction out of it anymore.  Besides, I'm not playing the game.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Yes ofc. It was meant to be the "No.1" Star Wars Game. Rich Story attracked me much. Also the well advertised Illum and PvP was main part of my interest.

Do you currently play this game?:

No.

 

If yes, please explain why:

 

If no, please explain why:

I was betrayed by good Marketing. The "Illum PvP" was the biggest crap iv'e seen ever sins i started to play PvP Games. As my whole guild saw what we paid for (nearly 50 ppl!), 45 canceld the abo within the first month. Staying alone with no friends is not fun, so i left as well.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

I am waiting for Guild Wars 2 and play World of Tanks atm to get rid of the waiting Time. Also i purchased The Secret World, which has the best Questing iv'e seen for a long time. But Guild Wars 2 is main focus. The good thing is that i know what i will get, because i had the chance to test it by myself and not get tricked by Marketing.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:
 
Yes.  I'm interested in most major MMOs AND I like both Star Wars as an IP and BioWare's prev titles..  
 
Do you currently play this game?:
no.

If yes, please explain why:
 
If no, please explain why:
 
I expected it to be a mediocre game with a great story and to play it for the story.  However, the story turned out to be absolutely terrible and the coolness of running around with a lightsaber wore off after about 2 weeks.
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:
EQ2 - great endgame.
TSW - amazing story and world immersion, made by Funcom.
LoTRO - great story and world immersion.

I am interested in MMOs and SWTOR is a major MMO release, so always intersting to talk about why it has turned out so poorly.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:
1)  Own just about evey Bioware game since Baldurs Gate as well as Bioware console only games.
2)  It's Star Wars
 
Do you currently play this game?:
No
 
If yes, please explain why:
N/A
 
If no, please explain why:
1)  Developer ignorance towards Beta Testers and their customers, which I did three total to include stress test.
2)  Game features resembles a 2004 launch.
3)  Game is not a MMO.
4)  The gaming media has covered for this game taking "the player" and "the consumer" position last.
5)  Developer has the nerve to call a graphics mode that was in Beta and not the release "a bug".
6)  PvP horrible and was exploited with no roll back from the developer.
7)  Questing horrible in a lifeless world.
 
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:
1)  LOTRO - the lore and unique classes/race.
2)  DDO - It's D&D
3)  WoT - I get to blow stuff up
4)  Guild Wars - best PvP in a MMO.
 
What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?
1)  Game getting it right and becoming a playable MMO.

Yes. I loved SWG pre-NGE, and the whole SW IP in general. I heard rumors in beta of incipient disaster but decided to give it a try anyways.

Do you currently play this game?: No
 
If no, please explain why: It turned into almost everything I could have LEAST wanted in an MMO, solo/asocial play, penalizing class duplications, narrow chanelled worlds that provide no variety or options in play, meaningless PvP,  over usage of cutsecenes, Social dialogue mechanic that gave little real feel of participation and rapidly devolved into <space><space><space> click fests.
 
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: Eve - the game reinforces social and tactical play while having a wide open universe with a vast multiplicity of choices.  No other MMO's currently, but past favorites EQ1, AC1, DAoC, Vanguard, Aion, RFOnline
 
What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? Curiousity as to when/if/how they will "fix" the game into something I might like, but with every Dev Blog I read I see them denying reality and moving farther and farther from an MMO that I might enjoy. Really need to leave these SW forums for good.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Only marginally, since the Developers made it clear from the start it was going to be a standard theme park game, and I guess I would have preferred an upgraded SWG since I missed that the first time around.  But what the heck, it was Star Wars, so I had to give it a try

Do you currently play this game?:

No

If yes, please explain why:

If no, please explain why:

I played through one level 50 (Trooper) and got to about level 25 on a 2nd (Assassin?) and became bored with the game.  I have no interest in raiding or gear grinding which is why I don't really like any modern MMO's, I favor titles like DAOC, EVE, Lineage 1/2  or Shadowbane. (despite being a carebear at heart)

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

TSW, mostly out of boredom.  While it has many standard theme park conventions there's enough different (at least here in my first month) that I don't actually feel like I'm playing WOW clone # 34.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

Er, as I've mentioned before, I'm a troll.    I post everywhere, on just about everything, regardless whether I know anything about it or not.  If there's a discussion going on, you're going to find me there.

 

Arrogant, Condescending, Dismissive, Elitist, "Meany", you speak as if these are bad things?

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

I was interested because it was Star Wars and because it was BioWare.  The reputation of both names peaked my interest.

Do you currently play this game?:

No.  I left once I hit level 30 or so.

If yes, please explain why:

If no, please explain why:

One day I just didn't feel like logging in.  When I eventually did log in I just couldn't get myself to do the same thing I'd been doing.  It seemed that every zone involved meeting some people that needed help to control the zone.  It was all so scripted. Although I had "choice" it didn't feel like my own story - it was theirs, and to be honest - it wasn't that good.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

I currently play GW1 and am looking forward to Guild Wars 2.  They are different enough to keep my interest and seem to take a lot of the mundane out of the traditional MMO experience.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

I love talking about MMO's and typically respond when something seems interesting.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Yes

Do you currently play this game?:

No

If yes, please explain why:

 

If no, please explain why:

I quit because I can no longer justify paying a sub fee with so many great subless MMOs out there atm.  The game, imo, was not worth the sub at endgame.  Playing multiple alts to see their stories eventually got old because of the same quests.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

LOTRO is currently my game of choice.  I love how they do F2P and a great community always keeps me coming back to that game.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

I'm still interested in playing the game.  The main reason I quit was the subcription.  The annoucement of F2P really made me happy and I will play this again when it comes out.  This of course is assuming that I like their F2P model.

To err is human, but to really f*ck things up you need a computer.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: Not really, I am a fan of Star Wars but I didn't have high hopes for this game because even before it came out it looked like another boring grinder with no new game mechanics.

Do you currently play this game?: Nope


If yes, please explain why:

If no, please explain why: From looking at the game site at the content list and all the reviews on this forum, it's as bad as or worse than I expected, and therefore shouldn't be touched with a ten foot pole.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: Eve Online because it has unique, complex and difficult gameplay mechanics and an awesome sandbox environment, and Age of Conan because it allows your female characters to be almost completely nude :)

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? I posted on this because your thread title caught my eye in the "recently edited" thread list, and I don't post often in SWTOR forum threads because I don't bother to play it.

Where's the any key?

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: I was very interested, because it's Star Wars and I love the IP. 
 
Do you currently play this game?: no

If yes, please explain why:
 
If no, please explain why: My character got a bug which would not allow me to advance my light side points any  longer.  Since gaining light side points is integral to character advancement, I saw no point in continuing my subscription.  I cancelled my subscription and gave them one month to fix the bug.  At the end of that month, my character was still bugged so I allowed my subscription to run out.
 
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: I am not currently playing an mmo since I have played most AAA mmos and see no point in playing a themepark past max level.  Raiding, long gear grinds, and meaningless pvp does not interest me.
 
What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? I do not post here frequently, but when I do it is usually in response to a query of some kind.  Otherwise, I see no point in beating a dead horse.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:

Yes, I was.  I really enjoy the SW universe; I loved KOTOR; Bioware was an exciting company. 

Do you currently play this game?:

No

If yes, please explain why:

--

If no, please explain why:

The game lacked a sense of interaction with the world, for me.  Certain RP elements, like emoticons, sitting in chairs, and open-world interaction with others were limited.  The end-game was grindy and unappealing.  It felt like all stick and no carrot.  

 

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:

LOTRO, WOW: They are both games where I can jump in quickly, have some fun, get something accomplished, and log out to get back to summertime activities.  I never played WOW until recently, so it's nice to have access to tons of content and a large online support network.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?

I rarely post because this game was a let-down.  It was a good game but it didn't offer an online world experience that I was looking for.  I rarely post because, if I don't have something good to say, I try not to say anything at all!

Noone isn't a word; It's "no one". On a side note, you can guess where the word "none" came from.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:  Yes, I was interested in a new Star Wars MMO, and an MMO finally having a story that I was a part of and not just a lazy backdrop of the game.

Do you currently play this game?: Yes.

 

If yes, please explain why:  I play it because I enjoy it. I love the Star Wars universe, I love the atmosphere of the game, I love that there's a story most of all. I love that they actually put effort into making an MMORPG that was exactly what that term (MMORPG) looks like, and stands for.

 

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:  I'll be playing Guild Wars 2, I love the beta experience so far. Other then that I don't.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? I've noticed that I have posted in this subforum more frequently because I see tons of trolling and incorrect information being posted on this game, so I tend to come and join such topics in order to provide more accurate information on the topics where this is an issue.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?: Absolutely. I thought the Idea of SWTOR was an amazing concept and setting for an MMO.

Do you currently play this game?: No.

 

If yes, please explain why:

 

If no, please explain why: The game had terrible optimizations and lacked in-game features that a hyped up MMO launching in 2012 would have. Had this have come out around vanillia WoW; the features would have been the best. All-in-all, it was not worth $15/month. Along with the fact that the number of players is dwindling, and no Cross-server functions are being implemented; it would be tedious to find players for group content. When it goes F2P I will return.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: TSW, EvE, Planetside. I bought the LTS for TSW; and EvE will always have my heart. It's hard not too go away from it now

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do? Curiousity about the state of the game. 

Played - M59, EQOA, EQ, EQ2, PS, SWG[Favorite], DAoC, UO, RS, MXO, CoH/CoV, TR, FFXI, FoM, WoW, Eve, Rift, SWTOR, TSW.
Playing - PS2, AoW, GW2
