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

Yes, I was very interested in this game before it came out.  Not only am I a huge fan of Star Wars, I am also a fan of the old Bioware RPGs.

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes.

If yes, please explain why:

First and foremost, I love the character stories.  I also enjoy the campanion system.  Thinking deeper, though, I would have to say that this is a very casual friendly game with a lot of options to play.  There are options for both solo and group play.  I can easily get lost in this game for multiple hours.  On the other hand, if I only have under an hour to play, there are plenty of things I can do.  Finally, everyone in my little guild is still greatly enjoying this game, so, for me, SWTOR is a very social experience.   

If no, please explain why:

N/A

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

I am currently playing TSW.  I also periodically dabble in LOTRO and AoC.  I really enjoy TSW's modern setting and it's excellent story and mood.  As for the other two, I really enjoy the IPs. 

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

I very rarely post in the forums here.  I come to this site to browse for any news pertaining to the games I like and to see if there are any new contests.

The Greatest Story Ever Told Yours.

Yes and I plan to for a long while. It is a very good game only is going to get better.

I find these Warzones so much better than WoW and the pvp even with all the stuns etc. is a lot of fun.

Do you currently play this game?: no

If no, please explain why: The game offered nothing new. It was the same stuff as always, with a Star-Wars skin.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: none, I will play Fallen Earth again though, once I have the time

Let's play Fallen Earth (blind, 300 episodes)

Let's play Guild Wars 2 (blind, 45 episodes)

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

yes, due to the star wars ip and bioware developing

Do you currently play this game?: No

If no, please explain why:  to many reasons.. the basic game design is flawed

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

the secret world, eve online.  TSW because a friend asked me to and I enjoy it so far, Eve because its the only MMO that offers the gameplay I am most interested in.

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

I followed TORs development since before it even had an IP or a name,  and I played it from early release until last month so I have a strong interest in discussing the game, my issues with it, and its potential effects on the genre.

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?:  Yes.  I was intrigued by the idea of World of Warcraft in a Star Wars setting.  I figured if SW:TOR could manage to beat WoW at its own game, it would be a solid experience.  By and large, I think SW:TOR has come pretty close.  I enjoy its leveling experience far better than I enjoyed leveling in WoW, but endgame mechanics are fairly poor right now.
 
Do you currently play this game?:  No.  

If yes, please explain why:
 
If no, please explain why:  
I've done everything in the game I've set out to do.  I leveled my sentinel to 50 within the first month of release and recently came back to complete all hard mode raids.  While I enjoy leveling my commando alt, I'm no longer compelled to play at this moment.  I thought the legacy system was a cheap ploy to keep people playing longer and the sterile gameworld made it difficult to feel immersed in the universe.  I will probably return for the next big content update.
 
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:  Not really playing any more MMORPGs at the moment.  Trying to find a decent F2P game to keep my occupied in order to save money.
 
What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?  SW:TOR is not a bad game in any quantifiable aspect.  You can say the game has been a disappointment, but this game gets a major amount of unfair criticism most likely becaue of the game's publisher.  In reality, SW:TOR is a product of its time.  It's just a WoW clone with a Star Wars skin, which ironically gets the most heat despite not even being the most blatant clone.
 
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?:

I wanted to play this game from an early stage because I was a fan of Bioware's previous RPGs and because I liked the Star Wars IP - I was also a long-time supporter of SOE's SW-themed MMO, Star Wars Galaxies.

I followed this game for years - mostly through footage, images, press releases and materials issued by EA/Bioware. As the game approached launch, it began to be extremely clear that this much of this information was being contradicted in many cases by information from outside, third party sources. 

I began to be interested in the game not just as a game but as an example of a product that was likeloy to be extremely inferior and whose imminent failure would in fact be hastened by crass over-marketing.

Do you currently play this game?:  

No.  I played in Beta and then as a paid account for two months.

If yes, please explain why:

If no, please explain why:  

This game was exceptionally limited. It was very linear and its features were extremely limited. There were essentially only two types of 'game experience':

- Broken and clumsy PVP

- Repetitive and dull PVE.

It became obvious to anyone within a short time of playing that this game was not what we had been promised by the game's development and marketing teams. Somewhere in the development process, Bioware had made a decision to radically cut back on previously promised features and, instead, put out the game to meet some marketing or financial calendar.

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

World of Warcraft and, imminently, GW2.

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

I post frequently in this forum for the following reasons:

- Because MMORPG.com is still a premier source for news and discussion of news regarding MMOs.

- Because it' important to get the truth out, even though it often seems that the Community Manager and his Mods play 'favourites' with both games and forum posters and are, in many cases, a great deal less intelligent than many of the posters they censor, often for trivial reasons.  Generally, the Modding in this forum is disgraceful.

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

Yes. I followed the game for about a year prior to release. I quit playing WoW, and checked out some of the other titles that BioWare had developed in the past since I had never played any of their games. I was really impressed with Mass Effect 1 and 2, less so by Dragon Age Origins.

I was very interested in the idea of playing a new MMO from day 1, I thought the VO and class quest cut-scenes were a great idea, and I've always been a Star Wars fan. I kind of missed the boat on SWG, and on the chance that TOR really took off I wanted to be involved from the start.

Do you currently play this game?:

Sort of?

I pre-ordered the Digital Deluxe edition when pre-orders were announced. My wife and I un-subscribed just before our first free month ran out. I recently re-installed the game to take advantage of the free trial, and I may play a bit when it goes F2P.

If yes, please explain why:

I really enjoy the character leveling experience. I never got a chance to play all the classes, all the way through, and would like to do that when the game goes F2P. I especially like making class quest videos.

If no, please explain why:

I am not playing it as my main MMO because I was very disappointed in how endgame was implemented.

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

I am currently playing World of Warcraft as my main MMO. Of everything currently on the market, it has the best endgame character progression.

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

I really wanted to love this game, but I was unable to do so. I like to stay up to date with what is going on. I really wish there was some way to "fix" what I perceive to be wrong with it, but I doubt that will ever happen.

Since I invested so much time into following this game, I guess I feel entitled to share my opinions as to what what wrong, what BioWare did right, why I became disinterested, etc.

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

Yes,  up until right before beta when they exposed their plans to become anohter gear grind and catered to guilds like Ensidia on their forums, then I abandoned it.

Do you currently play this game?:

God no.

 

If yes, please explain why:

 

If no, please explain why:

On top of being a gear grind  monster mash, it lacks basic features I expect out of a Star Wars title, no race selection, no  crafting or olive branch to sandbox elements, no space exploration, FACTIONS are totally out of place especially for bounty hunter and smuggler types an optional pve joinable factions would have been better for those WANTING to join the republic/empire. It is too much like a fantasy wow clone and not enough like a sci fi game it totally lacks the Space Opera features any sci fi enthusiest would want or demand.

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

GW2, Fallen Earth,  I like a more organic approach to my mmorpgs, or at least something out of the box, my past games have been UO, Ryzom, Spellborn, EVE, Shadowbane.

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

I am fascinated that this forum for such an obviously bad game is coddled by this site as the second coming of Christ, the game has already failed and it gets heavier forum moderation than GW2, which is by and large ignored and not subject to the "increased moderation" this particular forum is privy to. The total disconnect from reality is what interests me, not only from the players and posters, but  the interest you yourself  a supposedly unbiased moderator and this site in general have showed towards the game. Considering you are the head mod on this SITE that pretty well confirms my suspicions on the lack of honest critique for this game. I forgot what was the rating this site gave SWTOR? a 9 or a 9.5, thats unreal.

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

Yes, followed it from late 2008, was a huge KOTOR fan and was very much looking forward to playing an MMO based in that timeline. 

Do you currently play this game?:

Yes.

If yes, please explain why:

Haven't finished playing through all the storylines yet. I log in, mess around on alts, and run Ops with my guild once or twice a week on one of my 50s. They're still active so there's always stuff to do. Group Finder has made levelling more interesting. I'm also looking forward to the HK-51 companion, and I had fun with the world event once the zerg rush died down. Because of work, and life (and stuff) I play maybe 3 days a week 5-6 hours at a session, so far from hardcore. 

If no, please explain why:

n/a

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

This one, as above. I've pre-ordered GW2 months back, so I'll be playing that alongside this for a bit. 

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

I don't really do subforums, I use the recent forum posts feature and respond to whatever is on that page, mostly. Replied to this thread on the TSW forum from there, then I came here out of curiosity to see if there was one one SWTOR too. I don't post as much as I used to anymore, but I chip in here and there if something interests me enough.

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

Bought not only 1 but 2 of the $150 boxes, (wife and I).  Wife played SWG for 4 years, I played for 8.

Do you currently play this game?:

No.


If yes, please explain why:

If no, please explain why:

Way to linear.  This is the devs game, not mine  No customization (my ship and toon looked exactly the same as everyone else).  Every thing is on rails.  From questing on this world to questing on that world to end game content (level quests to dailys to this HM flashpoint to that HM flashpoint to this OP to that OP to this HM).  No real reason for PVP.  The engine could not keep up with the game.  A complete and utter "clone of WoW" only not as much of it and didn't work as well.  My entire guild left, rather quickly I might add.  There was no "world" to live in, you played in TOR not "lived in the world" like SWG.

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

STO.  Even with all it faults (and there are many) there is still more freedom, better engine (and that's certainly saying something as I'm no fan of the Cryptic engine), and better gameplay over there v. SW:TOR.

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

Interested if this finaly puts an end to the "WoW clones" via AAA developers so that gaming cos. can get back to at least a bit of creativity.

Were you interested in this game before it came out? Why? Why not?:  Not particularly.  Partially because it's EA, and partially because there wasn't any real reason to be interested in it.

Do you currently play this game?:  No.

If yes, please explain why:

If no, please explain why:  Because it's a mostly combat game where hardly anyone cares to defend the combat as being anything better than mediocre.  And EA manages to always make things worse than you'd expect.

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?:  Uncharted Waters Online, because I like the adventuring system.  Champions Online because I'm waiting for UWO to raise the level cap, which will fix quite a few broken things.

What compels you to post in this particular subforum as frequently (or infrequently) as you do?  I replied to an analogous thread in a couple other sub-forums, and decided to check this one to see if it had a similar thread to reply to, in order to throw off your data.

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

I was mildly interested because it was Star Wars, but wanted to see the game for myself before buying it.  When my brother bought the collector's edition for my husband for Christmas, I watched my husband play and it looked amazing so I quickly got the game for myself after that.

Do you currently play this game?:

No

If no, please explain why:

After playing the game nearly every day for a couple of months, I found I needed a break after a while, and could not afford to continue the subscription at the time anyways.  I enjoyed the game very much while I played it, and do still get the urge to reactivate my subscription to play again.  However, I find myself interested in other games at the moment, and do not want to reactivate my account for SWTOR unless I think I will have the time to enjoy it.

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

I am not currently playing any MMO at the moment, but plan to start Guild Wars 2 after the next paycheck.

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

I lurk more than I post.  However I do tend to post in game subforums for the games that I play, like, or have played before.

Playing: Star Wars The Old Republic
Have Played: City of Heroes, Guild Wars, World of Warcraft, Fallen Earth, Diablo 3, DC Universe Online, Marvel Heroes, Guild Wars 2

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

 

No I was not intrested in the game before it was released because everything I read about it didn't feel MMORPG to me personaly.

 

Do you currently play this game?:

 

Actually yes I've been playing almost 2 months of and on.

 

If yes, please explain why:

 

The game went F2P till level 15 and thought I should check the game and even though my original thought of it not feeling like a MMORPG hasn't changed even though I am enjoying the "game" which still doesn't feel like  MMORPG cause I have very different expectations when it comes to playing a MMORPG, but it's  fun game never the less.

 

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

 

Apart from SW-tOR none, but most likely will get GW2 some day. And keeping a eye out at http://www.therepopulation.com/

SWTOR and GW2. SWTOR already stated. GW2 because i wanted to see what all the hype was about and because it wouldnt cost an addtional sub fee. i find it fun for the most part. i mostly enjoy doing exploration in it.

 i used to post very frequent in hopes of helping people find info on the game prior to launch. however between less of a need for info to be provided after launch and how toxic this place seemed to become(and not just in this sub-forum), i have not posted much anywhere on the forum

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

Yes because I love Star Wars and Bioware had a great reputation based on KOTR etc.

Do you currently play this game?:

No.

If yes, please explain why:

If no, please explain why:

It was fun for 3 months but then the PvE content got repetitive playing through the same planets with the same side quests even on different classes. The PvP was never great and got worse as population dropped leading to long queues. When you finally got a warzone to pop, you'd often only find teams with uneven sides resulting in a lopsided victory. And I couldn't stand to play any more Huttball. Ugh.

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

Guild Wars 2 because it's new, it doesn't have a monthly sub, it has 3 sided end game PvP that is somewhat similar to DAOC, and it doesn't have the standard end game gear progression grind.

I haven't posted here in quite a while, but I saw this topic pop up on the MMORPG.com front page and was curious enough to take a look and respond.

Do you currently play this game?: No, but did for a long while.
 
If no, please explain why: The time it takes to put out new content and the lack of developer presence in addressing issues and giving out useful information is not good(bad). All the FAQ's and community questions they choose to answer are side questions that don't address major issues to the game.
 
What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?
: GW2,TSW and Planetside 2. I feel that GW2 offers a ton of PVP in the form of SPVP and WVW which offer me a good amount of PVP in forms of both quick fix and long term competition. TSW because its skill system and deck builder are interesting and innovative ideas that I haven't seen really ever, kinda like a more free option of SWG's skill system or GW1's skill system. And lastly, Planetside 2. Because who doesn't want to blow shit up and shoot Vanu?

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

Yes, very.  I've loved the early BioWare games since the first time I sat down with them a decade ago.  Those games helped shape my expectations about what an RPG should and could be.  While I had been turned off by some of the interaction I had with BioWare personel during DA:O's development and had stayed away from the DA and ME titles, I had also been a huge fan of both KotOR games and longed for a KotOR 3 to bring the threads of that story to a conclusion.  TOR and its associated out-of-game material were sold to me as KotOR 3 through (whatever), so obviously I was interested.  Finally, I have been a fan of the Star Wars setting literally since I can remember, going back to the days of the original trilogy.  A Star Wars MMO was an opportunity to continue "living" Star Wars when the movies that served as ts foundation were no longer being made.

 

Do you currently play this game?:

No.  I stopped playing in March.


If yes, please explain why:

N/A

 

If no, please explain why:

Georg Zoeller's trolling of fans on the official forum was the last straw that prompted me to cancel my subscription.  Even before that, however, I had a number of issues with the game that made it clear it was not the game I would be spending the next five years with.

I think that in fitting Star Wars to their story-based RPG model with basic MMO gameplay (it felt like WoW stripped of all the improvements made over the yeras), BioWare horrendously underutilized the Star Wars setting.  I had played WoW for 3 years.  I was hoping for more than a Star Wars reskin of a typical fantasy MMO.

I felt the game design was sterile and lacked imagination in world design and questing.  I had leveled serveral different characters and found the experience to be extremely repetitive to the point of irritation.  For me, the game did not offer the range of compelling gameplay options to hold my interest over multiple toons over more than a couple months of gameplay.

 

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

Currently my time is being spent on GW2.  I have also played TSW and GW1 in the last month.

 

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

Gaming is not my entire life, but it is still a part of who I am just like my job and my interest in sports.  I had a personal emotional investment in the success of the game.  I wanted it to be the game I made my MMO "home" for the next five years.  I remain frustrated that TOR turned out not to be that game, and while I try to avoid being a "hater" I feel better occasionally talking out those frustrations than harbor resentment silently.

I also tend to resent the deification of people (or companies) in this case, and things (TOR in this case) that I consider flawed.  I believe that holding something up as a supposedly positive example encourages immitation, and I don't believe the current BioWare or TOR are things I want to see immitated elsewhere in the industry.  By expressing that opinion, I hope to help shape, in some small way, gaming in a way that will yield products in the future that I will enjoy.

Finally, I also harbor resentment toward both BioWare employees and the group of fans that attacked and insulted me and/or others when we offered advice on what we thought would make TOR better or explained why we thought a particular direction was a bad one.  There is always a certain satisfaction in being able to say 'I told you so' after having to simply "eat" repeated insults for several years during the game's development.  I didn't want the game to fail.  I wanted a game that they as well as myself would enjoy.  Instead , even when I supported the game I was treated like I was on a mission to ruin TOR and BioWare.

Were you interested in this game before it came out?  yes  Why? because it is Star Wars... duh!  Why not?:

Do you currently play this game?: yes

 

If yes, please explain why: i like the different classes.  i like the guild i am in.  it is a VERY social mmo because of the Heroic Quests and the community seems more mature.  i like the whole campanion idea.  i have had a blast in the pvp warzones even though i am not that good at pvp.  i think it is fun to play pvp with level 10 to 49 playing together scaled.  the level 50 is hard at first but, it gets easier with the gear you earn.  my level 50 has had fun raiding with the guild.

 

If no, please explain why:

What MMOs are you currently playing and why do you play these particular titles?: i am currently only playing swtor.  i actually have a lot of fun playing it and i like the current community of players.  our guild is HUGE with ~ 500 members and they are all VERY active.  swtor is a very stable game - i never have any problems or glitches and customer service and support is very fast and helpful.  they even refund my Commendations when i flake and buy the wrong gear  :).  plus, the subscription is worth it because it keeps their staff dedicated to writing new content, updates and patches.
