OP  10/20/13 12:51:14 PM#1

Although it has been confirmed that the Galactic Starfighter expansion will be PvP only, many people have speculated that this is simply a foundation to build on and that PvE content will follow. 

 

However, a TOR podcaster recently attended the New York community cantina event and had a chance to talk with the devs on the subject. You can listen to the comments starting at 42:05, but here is a direct quote:

 

"I asked him about the possibility that the current, that Galactic Starfighter was designed with PvE in mind. He said no, it was not. That is far far far far far down on the wall of crazy, is PvE Starfighter. He said the biggest problems would be with scripting and 3D AI; things that they dont have in the game they would basically have to write fresh. The good thing about PvE is the good scripting. Getting the ability in at the right time makes it interesting and fun, but not unfair. You know, getting those enrage timers right. Getting like a DOT thrown out at the right time. Stuff that has to be done really well for PvE to work right. And for them to do that in space would be a lot of work. So problems with scripting and AI would be reasons that we wont be seeing PvE Galactic starfighter. So thats upsetting, I'm not happy about that, I wish that we could, but its understandable. And hopefully they make a good system with the Galactic Starfighter."

 

So while they may change their minds and decide to build on the PvP-only foundation one day, that is not their current plan, and it definitely wont be any time in the foreseeable future.

Then for the forseeable future, they will not be getting my business. Seriously, making PvP-only space content for their PvE-focused game is just stupid, and I'm sure it's breaking a fair number of the Ferengi Rules of Acquisition.

Oh well. That company has been dead to me for a while anyway.

I didn't realise it would be that hard to make PVE content out of The S.S.S.P. OP. Sad news , I guess I will try the PVP content and then head back to the ground game. Thanks for the heads up.

Cheers,

Inserting PvP content to a PvE centric game to baance it out maybe?  Appeal to a new crowd?  Give people more things to do ? 

 

Like you mention, they've been dead for a while.  When you got nothing to lose and everything to gain, why not take the risk ? 

 

Just my 2cents.

I think it just shows how badly they are lost with the game.

Galactic Starfighter sounds fun, and SWTOR is a decent game too, but it feels like they are now making half-assed attempts at creating completely different games for different playstyles.

I said this before and I will say it again: SWTOR is being morphed into primarily a PvP centric MMO. One step at a time, one patch at a time. Here is why I am convinced this is so....

The Star Wars IP lends itself well to PvP...

Just like the Staffer says it's easier to write the code for PvP than it would be to write it for a PvE environment... no need for Mobs, just let the Players be the mobs..

Because some Players want it and they have repeatedly fell over themselves promising to spend much money if SWTOR gets more good PvP content...

Because with each new release of content it's PvP and/or it's PvE with sizable PvP areas incorporated into it....

Because if you make SWTOR more and more PvP than the Marketing Dept can say "SWTOR has more Dynamic Content than before! We listened!"

I am not a PvPer. I am too old and too handicapped in RL for PvP now. I liked PvP many years ago when Players did act like jerks when they killed you.... now it's a show for Youtube who can be the biggest $%^&. Most PvP Players now make me want to throw my monitor out my window.

I don't want to see more PvP in SWTOR, I want more PvE only areas and content, but from what I am seeing PvP centric is the direction this MMO is going. I have no doubt about it.

  I wont be getting this expansion since I don't PVP, unless it's a free expansion.

it's free so yeah no biggie , might be a bit of fun , but not sure my xpadder setup will cut it on a 360 joypad , we shall see.

Subbs get it first , around the 3rd of December , then about 6 weeks later preferred get it ( handy more than a months subs worth gap :) ) then F2P get it in Feb sometime , sorry haven't got the dates at hand but you get the picture.

You guys really wanted kill this ship, mine this asteroid pve quests?

 

edit- watching the twitch. Looks better than I though. It looks to have some customization. I hope the different option are equal, and not just tiered.

 

edit- watching actual play. Looks legit for flight shooter. Good step for swtor.

Is it now the time? Did anyone expect anything more than space warzone?

It might be some fun, it might be terrible, but i wont judge it until i try it.

And i fear, as all their other parts of their game, its just another gear dependant activity (whichever form gear takes). One of the reasons their regualr PvP sucks is complete gear>skill.

I'm not a big DS9 fan, but put PvP in a PvE game could backed up by rule #239, "Never be afraid to mislabel a product." :)

Explains why the expansion is "free".

The comments suggest that the original intention was to do PvE as well as PvP - SWTOR launched as both after all - but when they looked at what it would cost .... well as said they couldn't do the PvE justice. With PvP however good or bad things are everyone has the same good or bad. In PvE make things to easy and its no fun make it to hard and its no fun.

The SSSP has been blown up / allowed to be blown up into a big deal however - so something had to be done. Brave decision in many ways to dump the PvE. Gets them out of the hole.

Yet with PvE probably making up the bulk of the playerbase how to "sell it"? Could have looked bad on a financial ledger if they sold it as an xpac.

Making it "free" - but structured in a way that they might get some revenue from a blip in subs / extra preferred status folk from people who don't want to wait - good call. 

 

Just the way it is.

They don't need PvE AI - as they could just make it about exploration and freeform flight.

Sure, it would be cool to have AI in the space segment - but I'd be more than happy just exploring the galaxy and flying to planets in that way, instead of the awful "pick a planet on the map" way.

Beyond that, they could have "open space" PvP - on PvP server, using the engine enhancements they've developed for this expansion.

More than enough for me - at least to get started.

you want great space PvE? play this

 

 

the problem is BW can only do instanced warzone arenas, still no open world PVP in space with free roaming.

And no AI for PvE

 

well, hey programming is hard

 

btw wasn´t JTL programmed within a year? BW should have hired the SWG crew to do the job

 

or their engine is so royally bad and messed up that they are stuck completely

 

time to pull off a Final Fantasy and revamp the game I guess

I wonder if it's possible to convert the assets and use the Frostbyte engine instead of the Hero engine?

Sure, it's probably a very big deal and at least a year of hard work - but maybe it would be profitable in the long run?

I don't see why people are getting so upset.... It's a -free- expansion. If it's not for you, then okay you don't have to play Galactic Starfighter and you can continue on your merry PVE-ing in peace. However, I don't see the point of expressing distaste to a FREE item. If it weren't free, then I would understand the hostility. But it's not. Just be happy SWTOR continues to grow and as a pvp-lover all I have to say is  "Good job, SWTOR."

I don't think people are upset that it's free - but that the game isn't evolving like they hoped.

If you want something and you don't get it - it's only natural to be upset. Whether that's justified or not, is another matter.

Personally, I think the game is pretty good as it is - but it could have been so, SO much better. That's kinda tragic to me, but ok - it's just a game and whatever.

That is really not the point, most people play both aspects anyway and just want a good mixed experiece of both

I play PvE+PvP and I wanted open space with both elements, that is all. Just a good space sim in the Star Wars universe similiar to JTL

 

There is bunch of PVE extremists who feel "they didn´t get anything" but that is irrelevant, even as someone who likes PvP I don´t feel like I´m getting the right thing with GS.

I miss cockpit view, I miss NPCs thrown into the mix, I miss flying around in space and go where I want, not just queue up for another warzone
