Now before you list everything wrong with TOR, or say everything is fine as it is, my question is too people like me who quit cause they disliked alot of its current features. I complain about alot of TOR's features, so please don't cite everything wrong with the game lol, cause I've probably already posted it:)

 

Pre launch, bioware had a poll "what would you prefer in a space experience" where rail shooter and turret shooter where tied for worst on the poll, and JTL(Jump to Light Speed, the swg space game) and 3D space with capital ship boarding finished at the top.

 

Since then, little snippet's here and there have suggested that they have been working on a super secret space project, and they have said it's not the current system or an addition to the current system.(In fact they have plainly stated a massive space project has been in the works, since the poll's realizations came to light)

 

So the question is, if TOR launches a very cool space game, 3D like JTL, or BF2, would you try it out? I for one would, but I'm curious if it could be a game changer for TOR. I played JTL in SWG for about six months without playing any landbased gameplay, simply because I got addicted fast.

 

I'm always told "space is a dumb niche" and maybe people are right, but I like it, I'm just curious if others do? I would sub for a couple month's if its as revolutionary as Bioware is claiming, would you?

 

If they release something like that, then it will most likely happen after Star Wars: The Old Republic goes "free to play" so in my opinion there would be no reason not to check it out if someone was on the fence about playing it, assuming it's not a feature they would have to purchase inorder to experience it.

From all the quotes I don't think it's expected till the first expansion. So I'm guessing at the one year mark. So chances are your right, it should be free to play then, so I think that helps with my decision to go back and at least give it a whirl(even though their free to play model excludes people like me that already had alts at level 50).

I'm excited for space combat in mmo's period, there should be good days ahead for space enthusiast, cause the god father is announcing his new game in a day and it's rumored it's an mmo(I hope there is finally a ground/space based hybrid that's good on both fronts, cause so far it's been either or since SWG, minus STO, which I won't even go into why that game pissed me off on both fronts)

I'm fine with that perspective. I'm a diehard starwars fan, but jedi/sith isn't my thing, lol. Thats what should be great about starwars, the IP has something for everyone, minus orcs, which I'm told is a must for an mmo to be successful:)

So long as it was uninstanced, massive, and group oriented.

 

I have no interest in playing an MMO for small instanced arena fights, but in space.

With SWTOR the game world itself seemed so lifeless, nothing is gonna fix that anytime soon.

You return from time to time, but the luster is gone.  What initially attracted you to the game remains, but every other problem persists.

I play games for awhile, but once I unsub even for a brief time, if I come back, it isn't for longer than two months max.

For you that may be true, but for me, I just don't return. Eve, Warhammer, Vanguard, GW1, DAOC,Asheron's Call, LOTRO, Everquest, World of Warcraft.....all mmo's I never returned to. Once I'm done, I'm done. Ultima Online has been the only game I've kept subscription to from the start of the game, I just keep the subscription because I  have a keep to decorate all times of the year, heh.

What happens when you log off your characters????.....

I agree in general, although I think it would be nice to also have the option to play instanced "story" missions in space as well. The primary design should be around a massive space area and large-scale combat opportunities.

If they did it right, it would show they are staring to get "it".  SWTOR is not beyond saving.  It would be costly to save it though, and the price of development compared to what they are bringing in will determine how much more they will spend on it.

 

If they did revamp space and then started a planet revamp after that I think it would go along way.  The game felt like a SP player game.  The zones were to narrow and pathed. 

 

3D space would show they understand where they screwed up and give me some faith that they may be able to salvage the game.  If they put out a half backed 3D instanced PVP space game with no customization and invisable walls it would just further the games demise.  It would foster more and more of the Bioware/EA don't get it and never will talk.  "Their hubris is beyond the ancient Greeks" comments will be in every thread.

 

This is something they have to do right or it will be the final nail.  If they do implement a new space feature I would venture to say the game will trurn one way or another at that point.  It will either give people hope that new updates will fix the game in a meaningful way or it will destroy all hope and people won't care at all what they say or do.  Hope will only last so long though. they will still have to fix the world in a meaningful way.

"Star Wars the Old Republic, the game that you know, was an (not so?) elaborate hoax -- it was developed for reasons of secrecy. The actual Star Wars the Old Republic will be released in the first quarter of 2013"

where that from?

Get rid of Fleet Stations, expand on existing planets and I'll come back.

I just hate how small Planets are and I hate how everyone sits in the fleet making it a lobby game and not a world game.

I´d also like to see a revamp of the existing planets, rather than new ones added which follow the same scheme.

I wonder what Makeb will be like, according to the videos there is not much to be seen that looks different in design.

And the exhaustion zones are simply a design mistake, no discussion about it. Might be all engine limitations though.

space is not my concern

biggest probs in swtor for me are :

1 the none global chat channel

2 the very small storage slots

3 the unbalanced classes

4 95% of items are BoP

If they did it right I would absolutely buy the game to check it out. This was by far one of my biggest peeves with TOR. The ground game is still not quite up to par, but if it were secondary to an epic space aspect the game suddenly becomes viable.

I've given too much money for that game in my opinion. And since it was not only lacking a good space system i'll pass.

In fact, i've put an X on that game in spring and am not really incline to go back.

If swtor space was like jtl or better i would give the game a second chance, but they would neef to redo the crafting system tooin order for me to concider staying long term. While loved swg's jtl it wasnt just one feature that made swg so great. Dontt get me wrong, swg had stuff that didnt work too but it just did so much right..
