New stuff on the Black Lion Trade Center such as: Event Costume Skins and The Kit that allows you change the LOOK of your character.

New dungeon mode: Fractals that go on and on until you hit Level 50 fractal, IIRC.

New Ascended Gear

Class Balances (although it's still not enough)

And now, WINTERSDAY event, which will add more itemization to the game and a pretty significant update to World V World

 

SWTOR added in 1 year:

2 Flashpoints (?) not sure tbh.

2 Warzones

2 Operations

More Cartel Stuff that really still doesn't make much sense to me.

New PvE Zones (Belsavis and Corellia) Dailies I think it was.

ReSkinned tiered gear

ReSkinned Mounts

PvP adjustments (which is still lacking)

 

I've played SWTOR since I was in beta for a year before launch. Got the CE and all. And honestly, for a P2P game, that's not a lot of content compared to a B2P game that lets you access the WHOLE game with no sub fee.

If anything, I'd compare SWTOR to RIFT as far as how content is implemented.

You forgot about 2 events: Ragh and Grant aCQUISITION

Oh right, the two "events". I also forgot about the space missions apparently added. Yeah sure, add those too.

Holiday events are now major in the MMO world?  Well SWTOR just added life day event items

New zone map: Southsun Cove

One zone in 5 months and you call that a lot?  

I forget the number, but during the events they add crazy new Jump Puzzles

Oh wow a jump puzzle?

1 New PvP Map

With Ancient Hypergate that would be 3 new Warzones (PVP) for SWTrO

Structured PvP changes, enables competitive players to go at it without facerolling pugs.

They have added and implamented so many changes to PVP structure I can't even start to list them here

New stuff on the Black Lion Trade Center such as: Event Costume Skins and The Kit that allows you change the LOOK of your character.

SWTOR just opened their Cartel Market and have way more items than GW2 does, and its market has been out since launch.  

New dungeon mode: Fractals that go on and on until you hit Level 50 fractal, IIRC.

3 new flashpoints, with hard modes 

New Ascended Gear

So your new gear isnt "ReSkinned" But SWTOR is?  They have added 2 new sets of PVP and Multiple new sets of PVE gear and no its not just "reskinned"

Class Balances (although it's still not enough)

They have done a lot to class balance.

And now, WINTERSDAY event, which will add more itemization to the game and a pretty significant update to World V World

Well its safe to say you have not played since GW2.  And thats fine, but your post is very bias towards GW2 and makes it look like GW2 actually added a lot.

It's just preview, so quality of pic is not the best... not buying it though.. so bear with me

It looks good actually.  Breaks up the monotony of rehashed vehicles !!

 

 

Put a Walmart sticker on that bad boy and I might actually think the Sith now support St. Nick and Christmas is real in Star Wars too.

And... they added  very cute Mini-Destroyer Droid as a pet today :)

Isn't it the cutest thing alive?

Edit: The Doid... not the toothy monster in the background /grin

You can say I'm biased, but tell me what I missed besides the Space MIssions and the TWO "events" TOR had added? You said you wanted comparison, and GW2 has added more stuff in the 5 month mark than SWTOR did.

Damn straight I'm biased. I paid for a CE and didn't look back once 1.2 hit. Disappointed is an understatement. Now...my ONLY regret is that I didn't start Rift from the beginning. Compared to SWTOR, Rift blows it out of the water.

You missed a lot more than that about SWTOR and exaggerated everything about GW2 but you think GW2>SWTOR I think SWTOR>gw2.But like you mention Rift I feel LOTRO is by far the best mmo available right now.

On a bright side I thought I will share with you today something really cute...

'Jedi' religion most popular alternative faith in Great Britain

 

Today's Census figures show that 176,632 people in England and Wales identify themselves as Jedi Knights, making it the most popular faith in the "Other Religions" category on the Census and the seventh most popular faith overall.

.....they probably all play SWTOR

Then if you read further, following the source of their information (OF YOUR OWN LINK):

Why did people answer “Jedi”?

Much of the public and media discussion focused on legitimate concerns with the census, which the “Jedi” answer could be disruptively used to promote. Some reasons that non-religious people in particular answered “Jedi” include:

  • concern about how ‘religion’ data might be used
  • concern about the inclusion of a question on religion at all
  • making a statement about privacy or annoyance with interference
  • a reaction against the apparent presumption of having a religion
  • making a point about the way people tend to legitimize religion based on its antiquity or number of adherents
  • because it was funny

Should I answer “Jedi”?

Our recommendation is that if you are not religious, answer “No religion”, because although the ONS will count “Jedi” answers as non-religious, other commentators, organisations, or religious institutions may disaggregate these results and refer only to the explicit “No religion” answers. You would then be omitted if you answered “Jedi”.

To be clear: the ONS does say it will interpret “Jedi” answers as belonging under the “No religion” category (and it will report the Jedi number separately as well). However, the concern, as with all specific answers including “atheist” or “humanist”, is that other organisations using the data will disaggregate them. They may for example cite the ambiguity of the meaning of putting “Jedi” (see previous section) and so use only explicit “No religion” answers. This would result in lower figures for the non-religious.

If you want to write Jedi as a protest against being asked the question at all, see Why should I answer the question at all?

Our campaign is aimed at non-religious people. If you actually identify, religiously, as a Jedi, then that’s what you should put.

To be clear: the ONS does say it will interpret “Jedi” answers as belonging under the “No religion” category (and it will report the Jedi number separately as well). However, the concern, as with all specific answers including “atheist” or “humanist”, is that other organisations using the data will disaggregate them. They may for example cite the ambiguity of the meaning of putting “Jedi” (see previous section) and so use only explicit “No religion” answers. This would result in lower figures for the non-religious.

If you want to write Jedi as a protest against being asked the question at all, see Why should I answer the question at all?

Our campaign is aimed at non-religious people. If you actually identify, religiously, as a Jedi, then that’s what you should put.

From my fan mail, I'm supposedly a hater, so it's my job :P

 

You have to pick something less intuitive, like how SWTOR won the Game Developers Choice Online Awards.

In that case it took awhile for observers to figure out that the people who voted for SWTOR as the #1 game ever also worked for EA (or had worked for EA or were affiliated with one of their studios).

 

:=D

Nickel and diming customers is SWTOR's way of life. So, using this logic. "life" day is celebrated BY buying things in the cash shop. ;)

'Jedi' religion most popular alternative faith in Great Britain

 

Today's Census figures show that 176,632 people in England and Wales identify themselves as Jedi Knights, making it the most popular faith in the "Other Religions" category on the Census and the seventh most popular faith overall.

.....they probably all play SWTOR

 

Then if you read further, following the source of their information (OF YOUR OWN LINK):

Why did people answer “Jedi”?

Much of the public and media discussion focused on legitimate concerns with the census, which the “Jedi” answer could be disruptively used to promote. Some reasons that non-religious people in particular answered “Jedi” include:

  • concern about how ‘religion’ data might be used
  • concern about the inclusion of a question on religion at all
  • making a statement about privacy or annoyance with interference
  • a reaction against the apparent presumption of having a religion
  • making a point about the way people tend to legitimize religion based on its antiquity or number of adherents
  • because it was funny

LOL.

How about this... there will be no Life Day Event in SWTOR because all BioWare employees believe in 12/21/2012 Mayan prophecy and they all requested two weeks of paid vacations to finally have a life before it ends

They'll still have to come to work, because (contrary to doomsday ratings shows & news networks), beyond the Winter Solstice is a new age, not an end.   It will be an age of misery and destruction, but a new age none-the-less :P  The resetting of the Mayan calendar is many things, I won't get into them though.

 

So to all SWTOR lunatics, the game will still be there Dec 22....

GW2 Added in 5 months:

2 Major Events (Halloween and Karka stuff)

New zone map: Southsun Cove

I forget the number, but during the events they add crazy new Jump Puzzles

1 New PvP Map

Structured PvP changes, enables competitive players to go at it without facerolling pugs.

New stuff on the Black Lion Trade Center such as: Event Costume Skins and The Kit that allows you change the LOOK of your character.

New dungeon mode: Fractals that go on and on until you hit Level 50 fractal, IIRC.

New Ascended Gear

Class Balances (although it's still not enough)

And now, WINTERSDAY event, which will add more itemization to the game and a pretty significant update to World V World

 

SWTOR added in 1 year:

2 Flashpoints (?) not sure tbh.

2 Warzones

2 Operations

More Cartel Stuff that really still doesn't make much sense to me.

New PvE Zones (Belsavis and Corellia) Dailies I think it was.

ReSkinned tiered gear

ReSkinned Mounts

PvP adjustments (which is still lacking)

 

I've played SWTOR since I was in beta for a year before launch. Got the CE and all. And honestly, for a P2P game, that's not a lot of content compared to a B2P game that lets you access the WHOLE game with no sub fee.

If anything, I'd compare SWTOR to RIFT as far as how content is implemented.

Whats funny is I was actually making the more logical comparison (SWTOR since free to play launch, GW2 since launch) and SWTOR still looks bad.

Guildwars 2 does the same thing, don't see people complaining about that.

 

Truthfully I don't mind this in moderation, just a company needs to consider the fact there is a fine line to walk where people can enjoy the holiday or where they just can't due to it being based to much on RL cash (or spending a lot in game to do so). Its about achieving that balance.

Really would like to know which geniouses work at EA and let this kind of thing get out :)

But now it seems that when they announce event it means a new gambling pack in Cartel shop.

Protip for you:

 

EA/Bioware have NEVER announced an event for Life Day.

All that has happened is that some Life Day items were data mined and fans assumed there would be an event. Made posts about it and as such it became a true story.

Not one announcement from Bioware has ever been made around a Life Day event in game.

But still, don't let inconvenient things like facts get in the way or your trolling :)

Exactly...

 

GW2 Cash Grab Halloween chests anyone?

 

Conveniently forgotten when it means another chance to jump on the bash TOR bandwagon...

 

Pathetic...

People jump on the bash TOR bandwagon because EA keep shooting themselves in the foot. f2p hasn't even been out for a month yet and they've already added the best ship upgrades available through real cash.  GW2 cash shop is bad in some ways too from what I seen.. additional character slot prices are a joke but at least to the best of my knowledge, you can't buy top tier gear on there.
