Because the name "Star Wars" is attached to it. That alone has caused many players to drop their MMO standards and happily throw money at Bioware. The only thing I can say for certain is that any revamped space system Bioware ends up employing will be Cartel Market driven.

This cant be said enough, if SWTOR didn't have the SW IP bonded to it, no one would bother with this vapid clone.

 

If you want a space game look up Star Citizen.

The difference is, most people can tell the quality of something regardless of if they like it or not.

 

I like WaterWorld. It is a terrible movie.

You like SWTOR. It is a terrible game.

 

See?

Originally, before launch, I would have said a secret space project in SW might be revolutionary. Unfortunately, they made some bad decisions when they chose their game engine. It will probably be a sad little project that further obscures a wonderful IP. Other developers are being wiser with the money going into projects, it saddens me Bioware doesn't have that going for them.

Having high hopes for a title which originally set the mark for visionary work and being crushed when I think of what SWTOR could have been is just painful. Specially when other games successfully implement more revolutionary systems that make older games feel dull.

I changed my mind. It's going to exploit the Cartel store even more then the game does currently.

How one ruins one of the greatest IP's in history is beyond me but they found a way.

…Incoming Transmission….

 

…Begin Republic Wide Broadcast…

 

Greetings,

 

I am Admiral Geutre, Commander of the Republic Fleet.  This message is going out to all corners of the Republic and is of the utmost importance.  Normally, I would not need to make such transmission, but the situation has become dire.

 

At the request of the Senate, the SiS has been investigating the Empire’s Fleet status.  What they found is, frankly, alarming.  The Empire has been putting considerable resources into new ships with powerful weapons.  Many Bothans died to get us this information.

 

We do not yet know what the Empire plans to do with their now bolstered Fleet, but we must be prepared for all possibilities.  We will not let the Empire’s moves go unchallenged.  The Republic has been strengthening its fleet as well.  New ships are leaving space dock all the time. This is where you come in.

 

Ships alone will not defeat the Empire. We need crews to man them.  The Republic must step up to this new challenge.  If you are able, we would be proud to have you among our ranks. From fighter pilot to cook, you can do your part.  Stand with the Republic and join the greatest Fleet the stars have seen.

 

…End Transmission…

it IS real, has been datamined and posted on torwars.com

Catwoman is really a bad movie.

And the space project is obviously going to be "Moonbreakers" if this is already all the info, just what I expected.. quick instanced PvP space pew pew instead of big universe to explore :(

Yeah whatever I'm getting Star Citizen, Elite Dangerous and X-Rebirth, the space sim genre is coming back

if this is healthy, i wouldnt like to see a sick one

they barely survived the first year,,thats the standard, for a normal mmo

is this a normal mmo? no, they have the biggest IP in the industry(they killed another mmo to get it)

and, according to the devs, they have spent a lot of Work and Money on it

if this game had been AWESOME, they could have beaten pandaland easily,,10 mio PAYING subs

if it was GOOD, they would have kept most of the playerbase,,around 2 mio paying subs

instead, it fell below the "break even" line,,what does that tell you?

if it is out of context, you dont have to reply to it

yes im a passionate gamer, i have no problems admitting to that fact

and you seem to be very passionate about this subject too, even if you dont realize it

star wars is a brand name almost everybody on this planet recognizes

not only the movies, but also tons of useless fan items,,this name is practically a license to print Money

but only as long, as they deliver a quality product

i can respect the fact, that you defend the game , that you like

but you have to accept the fact, that the majority of gamers think this is a bad game

now look at the past,,did the swg fans do the same, as you do now?

and how much did it help them in the end?

good games , like wow and EVE dont lose players as fast, as this

and shouldnt we expect a good game with the SW name on it?

i know its active,,so was STO , when they balanced on the edge of destruction

and so was CoX, when they decided to shut that Down

the big difference is this: they had a much leaner budget

and swtor has three mouthes to feed:EAs, Disneys, and their own

if you cant see the problem, then you know nothing about the real world

BIG spaceships? oh yea

Space sims are easy to create content for in terms of space, asteroids, suns and planets. The difficult part would be the balance in pvp, pve and smoothing out the combat and animations.

Its difficult to tell if at this point they are done with the core and just adding more content and fine tuning it, which could mean a large project.

Keep in mind its the super secret space project. Super the key word,

Theur expansion was very basic, and their frequent updates were not any new game mechanics like a new mini fame would be. 

So this is an important aspect of swtor, the long term project that had been in the works just as long or longer than the expansion.

it has to be something large. If its not, i would literally be scared to be a swtor dev. I would fear for my safety, and some tension might come from a large disappointed fan base that has been ignored and disappointed for too long. Possibly feeling shame to get a pay check from something that destroyed expectations and made people not believe in programming.
