I think you don't get what quality of life alludes to. 

I just started SWTOR a few weeks ago myself, I only avoided it because of the constant bashing of the game. To be honest, I find it by far better than any other MMO as far as the leveling process goes. I haven't reached endgame yet, but I have months worth of leveling to hold me over until the game is fleshed out more with content. The Legacy system they have rewards alts more than any other game I played, and the 2 classes I've played so far (both on the Empire side) have completely different stories and have high replay value.

And let's be honest - the pvp is a 1000x better than GW2. So that's reason enough to keep subbed.

Well considering that EA just did a server merge I would imagine that servers would be packed?  Their new Mega Server technology even had server queues with no real differeence in people joining / playing. .. just longer waits for existing customers to log on.

 

PVP in SWTOR stinks.  There is no large scale PVP, it's only tiny instanced PVP.  How is this better?  The pvp maps in GW2 are huge and the SWTOR maps are the size of a small building (like HuttBall) or a small town hub (like the others).

 

So lets be honest? lol

Prior to the merge my server was still packed. The game is still the #2 or #3 highest subbed game.

No open pvp outside of fighting in The Black Hole which can be entertaining, so I will give you that.

Wzs in Tor are tiny? Gw2's maps are extremely small, and they are all identical: 3 capture points with some PVE thrown in. How is that better? Civil War is easily bigger than any of the maps in GW2. Not to mention the awful camera and controls in GW2 that make pvp almost unplayable...the quality is just not there in that game sad to say.

 

let me guess your a swtor fanboy. even if the camera angle in gw2 does suck which i disagree playing as a necromancer aka range mage class, swtor pvp is garbage whether you like it or not. atleast gw2 has real pvp. as any meaning behind their pvp well thats a different story. i use to play swtor, the lack of work they promised and promised to fix illum still hasn't been adressed. sadly to say this game is not the #2 or # 3 so please stop trying to hype up a garbage game. these was one of the games that everyone including myself was looking forward to, and i'm sure if you ask everyone who has played swtor that left will give you the same answer as me. some may even be vulgar towards the game.

 

they need to fix the dam open world pvp make it more exciting, only then they will stand a chance in getting their playerbased back. but seriously please stop saying or even thinking this game is still #2 or #3 because thats a buncha bull. also i'd like to add, bioware needs to learn from se and look at what they are doing with realm reborn ffxiv. seriously

Sounds like you're getting very emotionally attached there, dude.

You do realize having a sub base around 500k puts a game around the top 2-3 spots. The biggest MMOs in the world are WoW, Aion, Lineage and SWTOR right now. Remains to be seen where GW2 will land.

not getting emotional just stating facts. subs will always grow because they will constantly have new consumers come in. it's more of them sustaining that which swtor has failed to do so. imagine they was like at what 1.5mill sub before and look at them now. they need to really look into what square enix did with ffxiv realm reborn and how they learned from their mistakes. i am not a harcore gw2 player i actually play 2 mmos eve online and gw2 atm. infact i play gw2 less then eve online because i prefer the freedom i have in eve compared to any other mmo. but putting that aside, unless bioware starts doing something big its going to be like just another mmo that just fades away. 

 

also aion online isn't freemium. freemium swtor is and thats almost like a subbed version. in the end swtor will still have the same basic borring pvp grind for armor that has really not point to it. atleast illum kinda did but they messed that up. anyways you can think what you want your opinion is yours and your own only. i standby with what i feel.

I was pointing out that you're incorrect in thinking it's not still one of the top subbed games. I don't understand how Tor is freemium...because it has a free trial up to level 10? Almost every mmo has something similar to that, including WoW. It's yet to be seen how they handle f2p and premium subscriptions etc. This is what they're planning to do to recapture lost subs. It will never be back to original release numbers, but very few mmos ever recover or grow from their release. The most successful mmos to grow actually grew from going f2p, like Lotro and D&D Online. So could be a similar situation with Tor. 

That's cool if you don't like the pvp. The pvp gear grind in Tor is actually quite minimal, and all of the top players are in full WH within a few weeks. That's when things get interesting, and ranked warzones are pretty intense. So gear is a non-issue at that point because everyone is using the same gear. At that point it's all about the fun, and the point is to win and beat the competiton. Which is the point of PVP anyway.

not getting emotional just stating facts. subs will always grow because they will constantly have new consumers come in. it's more of them sustaining that which swtor has failed to do so. imagine they was like at what 1.5mill sub before and look at them now. they need to really look into what square enix did with ffxiv realm reborn and how they learned from their mistakes. i am not a harcore gw2 player i actually play 2 mmos eve online and gw2 atm. infact i play gw2 less then eve online because i prefer the freedom i have in eve compared to any other mmo. but putting that aside, unless bioware starts doing something big its going to be like just another mmo that just fades away. 

 

also aion online isn't freemium. freemium swtor is and thats almost like a subbed version. in the end swtor will still have the same basic borring pvp grind for armor that has really not point to it. atleast illum kinda did but they messed that up. anyways you can think what you want your opinion is yours and your own only. i standby with what i feel.

I was pointing out that you're incorrect in thinking it's not still one of the top subbed games. I don't understand how Tor is freemium...because it has a free trial up to level 10? Almost every mmo has something similar to that, including WoW. It's yet to be seen how they handle f2p and premium subscriptions etc. This is what they're planning to do to recapture lost subs. It will never be back to original release numbers, but very few mmos ever recover or grow from their release. The most successful mmos to grow actually grew from going f2p, like Lotro and D&D Online. So could be a similar situation with Tor. 

That's cool if you don't like the pvp. The pvp gear grind in Tor is actually quite minimal, and all of the top players are in full WH within a few weeks. That's when things get interesting, and ranked warzones are pretty intense. So gear is a non-issue at that point because everyone is using the same gear. At that point it's all about the fun, and the point is to win and beat the competiton. Which is the point of PVP anyway.

thats the problem with swtor, i have the gears for pvp but in the end i'm left unstatisfied because all i can do is run flaspoint ops and do instance based small scale pvp. i mean even then if we look passed all that. it's the empty promises they have came up with that was never delivered. tell me what has become of illum after what they have said to fix the issue? btw i think that chat bubble thing is the most retarded thing to ask for in a fix lol. out of all things to ask for, people ask for chat bubbles -.-

And let's be honest - the pvp is a 1000x better than GW2. So that's reason enough to keep subbed.

Well considering that EA just did a server merge I would imagine that servers would be packed?  Their new Mega Server technology even had server queues with no real differeence in people joining / playing. .. just longer waits for existing customers to log on.

 

PVP in SWTOR stinks.  There is no large scale PVP, it's only tiny instanced PVP.  How is this better?  The pvp maps in GW2 are huge and the SWTOR maps are the size of a small building (like HuttBall) or a small town hub (like the others).

 

So lets be honest? lol

just one big lol, pvp in swtor is not all instanced when you compare with gw2 pvp. Do you even play gw2???? There is no open world pvp in gw2! Only instanced wvw pvp, something like pvp dungeon

Never missed them. And I'm already fully happy with game. But if this gives more options to others, have nothing against.

I think you don't get what quality of life alludes to. 

I just started SWTOR a few weeks ago myself, I only avoided it because of the constant bashing of the game. To be honest, I find it by far better than any other MMO as far as the leveling process goes. I haven't reached endgame yet, but I have months worth of leveling to hold me over until the game is fleshed out more with content. The Legacy system they have rewards alts more than any other game I played, and the 2 classes I've played so far (both on the Empire side) have completely different stories and have high replay value.

You are right dude. Do not read about game in forums or you will lose will to play. Game is awesome and for sure  have best class stories from any game. Do not read what hypocrites write, for example gw2 comunity was spitting so hard on swtor open world pvp but on the end  gw2 do not even have open world pvp, but now is everything great and awesome. WOW have around 10 mil subscribers and how many post you see from wow players??? Maybe 3, 4 in month and why is that? Because they play and do not care what people write on forums. But what you will see are fans of casual game like last ''big one'' because they are always left disapppointed and have nothing better to do :)

These changes don't even register on the "meh" portion of the scale for me.  Why not try to address the real problems with the game.  The ones that actually made people quit.  This fluff crap won't cut it.

uhm if you read i didn't use just gw2 as an example. i posted about ffxiv realm reborn also. also i have stated i am playing 2 games, that i play eve more then i play gw2. you need to gather your resources more before you even post stupid comments like these you just posted. or is gw2 the only thing you saw and refused to see the other examples i used in my arguement? lol you make me laugh kid

also i'd like to add posting on forums doesn't mean your bashing the game. these threads are made to post your opinion. what country are you from that doesn't allow you freedom of speech?

Big does not necessarily = good. Some of the best 'PVP' you will ever find in modern video gaming is the smaller-scale stuff you see in competitive first person shooters (counter strike), and moba's (dota). These are 5v5 games played on a limited selection of relatively small maps (or in the case of dota - 1 single map). Increasing the scale doesnt instantly make everything better.

Now - you may prefer larger scale PVP for whatever reason, and thats perfectly fine and you're entitled to that opinion. However, attempting to pass off your opinion as fact as for why one is better than the other isnt going to fly. I'm not saying GW2 PVP is better, or SWTOR PVP is better. All I'm saying is that some of the best PVP around is small-scale, and that the size and scale dont determine quality at all.

You are an interesting person :-)

 

SWTOR WZ's are varied and dynamic .. please explain?

All 4 of SWTOR's warzones have a completely different playstyle and varied mechanics is what I believe he was alluding to. I really dont think you could argue that they're not more varied than GW2's pvp arenas.

When I compair the quality of game between the 2 big MMO's launched in the past year, SWToR and GW2. I quickly come up with, why am I paying to play SWToR when GW2 is better quality and B2P?  GW2 has even promised new content coming and we are getting it for free.

 A change in payment type doesn't suddenly make the poor design decisions, bad game engine design, and poor quality control better.  The reasons people aren't flocking back or staying has nothing to do with the payment method.  Changing it won't fix the game.  If people won't play it for extended periods of time when it's free, you'd think EA/Bioware would get the hint.  But they didn't really listen to any feedback before either.

You say you just started playing.  You say you enjoy the leveling part.  You say you haven't reached end game.  And you say you play Empire.

 

This makes me think you didn't read all that "constant bashing" all that well.  Enjoy the game while you can, even though I doubt it will take you months to reach level cap unless you never do any pvp and are still trying to get people to do heroic 4 quests.  You'll see soon enough about the end game. 

The legacy system didn't really appeal to me, but it does play to the strength of the game.  The leveling.  Though, after you do it once on a class and make an alt of the same class( like trying a gunslinger and a scoundrel), you'll see there isn't any real depth to your "personal story" and that if you reroll the same spec you'll see your choices don't matter as much as you'd think.  Also, the legacy weapons are only good for a few levels and you level out of them rather quickly.  Unless they changed them or something.  They were not worth it before.  And, neither were half of the other legacy "perk" purchases.  You should be able to find lengthy posts about them on the forums if they haven't been deleted. 

You also don't have to deal with Republic armor choices being Empire.   A little thing, but, another thing on the list.

How do you feel about super mario brothers datacron version for stat items?

How do you feel about engine performance in high traffic?

Load screens to loading areas followed by more load screens?  Or did they finally stick to their word and remove those?

How do you feel about runes forcing you to follow light or dark paths while color crystals that offer neutral options don't?

How do you feel about pvp?  I'm guessing you never got to try Ilum.

I could go on, but it's not worth it.  Basically, before you jump to defend the game, give it some time.

When you said pvp is better than GW2 you lost all credibility.
