SWTOR is the biggest disappointment last year, hard to forget when it ranks as the biggest disappointment. Which means criticism to the game will never end. They did spend 300 million dollars to make such a disappointment of a game, they could've spent less then 1/3 of the money and have met the expectations of people. forgive me......I'm sorry....lol.

 

I think you have SWTOR mixed up with Diablo 3.

What isn't worth it was the fact that Mythic was killed off to finish this game, and we'll never get DAoC 2 or an Origin server (both of which were in development before EA ruined Mythic). So with Mythic dead, maybe its not so bad that EA will never ruin the DAoC legacy.

I have a soft spot for Origin.  You see in the 80's Richard Garriott had a company that would "create worlds".  That company was Origin System Inc, and the game was Ultima.

EA bpight Origin in 1992, and what a shame.  Get closer.

WHAT A SHAME!

Origin used to create worlds, and they did with every game.  EA took over and pffftt!  EA created voids and anger.  To anyone who missed out on the original Ultima's, they are obtainable (ABANDONWARE), which is more appealing than todays garbage.

Richard Garriott still made UO (thank you!), but he left anyways, like the BioWare doctors.

big BOO. :/

 

To see EA abuse Origin as their personal sales idea, drives me up the wall ... because EA is garbage and Origin was 100 X 100 to the 100 power (100 * 100 ^ 100) what EA will ever be. 

 

Oh well.  Carry on. /grumble

Just buy the game, is pretty discounted, play the freeium version and Boom you have an excellent single player game (if thats how you choose to play it). With 8 unique class story-lines and like 8 races to choose from. And you still have the added benefit of playing with other people even if you choose not too.

1) buying the game at this point is a waste of money.

 

2) Its not an excellent single player experince at all. The Storylines in SWTOR were great compared to other MMO's but compare it to a single player game story and it pales in comparrison. I would go so far as to say SWTOR represents the worst storytelling I have seen in a Bioware game.

"The Storylines in SWTOR were great compared to other MMO's",  well this is why the people who enjoy SWTOR play , because they are bummed at the terrible story lines in other MMO'S and thus enjoy the story line along with the small grouping, and other aspects of an mmo, they just find mmo's with story lines (like tsw, lotro) more interesting

 

But as an MMO it is below average. Its like a really average single player game with co-op but they wanted to charge a monthly fee for it. I love all things Star Wars & I really tried to make myself love SWTOR but it was just poorly planned, poorly designed & very poorly executed. I won't even go into how Beta testers & the community as a whole were ignored & mistreated.....

Well, keep in mind there are plenty of players who aren't MMO players that are coming back for the F2P.  I know a few.  They, of course, don't join message boards like this but they like games and they like Star Wars.  They might pick up a whole new casual fanbase.

It was the biggest money scam in history, Why people don't realize that is beyond me.

We're already getting DAOC 2.  It's called "Elder Scrolls Online" but it's got more in common with DAOC than anything.

Pity DAOC was mediocre and the RvR got boring after about a month.  Why would anyone want a sequal to that?

Because it was one of the best designed MMOs ever made, and the second most played one on the market for about 5-6 years?

 

And TESO is not DAoC 2. DAoC didn't have instances or quest based leveling. If anything, TESO is going to be more like WoW than anything else (as they mention WoW about 5 times in all the articles) which means it'll be a lot more like Warhammer (barf).

Great. What this game needs is more casual players.  Star Wars fans are old hat, MORE CASUALS. This will save the game.

I was more referring to the DAoC classic server dubbed "Origin" that they were worked on a few years ago before WAR started to tank and EA pulled the plug on it. But yes, EA destroyed the Ultima company and brand quite thoroughly.

  But it has what many people want, a good story line, great production and mmo elements, put a great space game in there and it would be fantastic

No... it wouldn't. The story is lack luster and loaded down with filler (to keep people paying monthly). Nothing that happens within that singleplayer storyline impacts the gameworld (because its an MMO) so it means nothing. The combat is outdated and boring (again, mainly due to MMO restrictions) All the art and themes are recycled from Episodes 4-6, which have no place in a game set thousands of years before. The graphics were heavily outdated.

There is almost nothing great about this game. It has the worst of singleplayer games and the worst of MMOs. The two DO NOT WORK WELL TOGETHER.

I love the sountrack .. EA was really cheap in giving CE buyers only 1 soundtrack disk :/  I'll trade the doorstop Malgus in for a 2nd soundtrack disk any day this week or next.

Some people ( most of them ) think this game should die in a fire. Can it be better? Sure...if torn down and rebuilt.

If you like it...great...some people like pigs feet and cow brains.

EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."

Well if you want to think of it that way.

Just buy the game, is pretty discounted, play the freeium version and Boom you have an excellent single player game (if thats how you choose to play it). With 8 unique class story-lines and like 8 races to choose from. And you still have the added benefit of playing with other people even if you choose not too.

1) buying the game at this point is a waste of money.

 

2) Its not an excellent single player experince at all. The Storylines in SWTOR were great compared to other MMO's but compare it to a single player game story and it pales in comparrison. I would go so far as to say SWTOR represents the worst storytelling I have seen in a Bioware game.

"The Storylines in SWTOR were great compared to other MMO's",  well this is why the people who enjoy SWTOR play , because they are bummed at the terrible story lines in other MMO'S and thus enjoy the story line along with the small grouping, and other aspects of an mmo, they just find mmo's with story lines (like tsw, lotro) more interesting

 

But as an MMO it is below average. Its like a really average single player game with co-op but they wanted to charge a monthly fee for it. I love all things Star Wars & I really tried to make myself love SWTOR but it was just poorly planned, poorly designed & very poorly executed. I won't even go into how Beta testers & the community as a whole were ignored & mistreated.....

  But it has what many people want, a good story line, great production and mmo elements, put a great space game in there and it would be fantastic

No... it wouldn't. The story is lack luster and loaded down with filler (to keep people paying monthly). Nothing that happens within that singleplayer storyline impacts the gameworld (because its an MMO) so it means nothing. The combat is outdated and boring (again, mainly due to MMO restrictions) All the art and themes are recycled from Episodes 4-6, which have no place in a game set thousands of years before. The graphics were heavily outdated.

There is almost nothing great about this game. It has the worst of singleplayer games and the worst of MMOs. The two DO NOT WORK WELL TOGETHER.

   In your opinion.  Why do you think your opinion is the same world over?, that is the thing with trolls,  you think that you speak for everybody and you do not. The combat is the same combat as most mmo's have, although I do like the animations in SWTOR better than many. Again this game combined good story line with mmo elements and that is why many people like this game, I am not a fanboy I can admit the space game was poor and some elements of PvP were absurd, I think you need to look at things with a  bit more objectivity

I don't think your definition of troll is sound.

My opinoin is laced with facts. 

When the game is compared to other singleplayer RPGs, it's woefully inept. 

When the game is compared to other MMORPGs, it is woefully inept. 

It is the worst of both worlds. A singleplayer game would have had better combat and meaningful story. This game does not. 

An MMO would have had an immersive world and a social atmosphere. This game does not.

 

But no no. Go ahead, call me a troll for pointing out the obvious flaws in a game that you're "totally not a fanboy of".

  Your opinion is just that-your opinion, some people would agree with your opinion and some will not , but to say your opinion is fact is absurd. Where is your objectivity?  does it matter to you that many people like this game for the reasons I stated? does SWTOR have mmo elements?, have you said one good thing about SWTOR?, have I show objectivity in my analysis of the game?  If you want to repost please answere my questions.

    I have to say i am sorry to posters who are reading this back and forth, but I cannot stand people who have no objectivity, this will be my last post on this subject, as there is no sense talking to people who lack objectivity.  On to the next post LOL

main issue is the game is missing for me the star wars feel imho.. for me this game did'nt capture that feeling at all and espeically for a game released at the end of 2011.. for example when I think of jedi fights in a video game i think of this more or less

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rk05rDCH6p0

but instead we got this 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Y3bFXTJAuc

 

yes obviously force unleashed is a srpg but just look at blade & soul combat and you can see this sort of interactive combat could easily work in a MMO

 

now obviously many enjoy swtor for what it is but watching the two videos and seeing the potential for jedi combat I really don't see how in some way people couldn't feel a little let down or see why so many are for a game released in pretty much 2012 and with such a huge budget...

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

If you don't like it.. move on... how many posts on this forum already discussed this to the nauseum.......

SWTOR is the biggest disappointment last year, hard to forget when it ranks as the biggest disappointment. Which means criticism to the game will never end. They did spend 300 million dollars to make such a disappointment of a game, they could've spent less then 1/3 of the money and have met the expectations of people. forgive me......I'm sorry....lol.

 

I think you have SWTOR mixed up with Diablo 3.

Not at all, I never played Diablo series what so ever and never bought Diablo 3. I just looked at streams of it and videos of Diablo 3 and thought it was terrible right off the bat as a given. My comment stands.
