OP  10/08/12 4:37:25 PM#1

BEFORE RESPONDING READ THE ENTIRE POST<-- I DO NOT HAVE A SITE NOR AM I MAKING ONE. THIS IS AN IDEA NOTHING MORE.

 

Ive been considering making a site that main goals are this"

 

1. A detailed list showing how many have quit and why. (the quit list)

2.Informing people truthfully about the game not bieng a carebear everythings ok site like darthcarebear

3. People can freely express their view about swtor and why its so bad in thier view. (the forums on this site will allow true freedom of speech only exception would be spam you could really say it like it is)

4.The site would give people considering playing it real honest raw info good or bad 

More would be added. Would you be willing to join this site? and post your views and why you quit let me know? The goal in the end though is to get enough truthful (negative most would say) publicity about the game to either get it shut down or for EA to realize they could fix this mess. Id prefer to get it shut down but highly doubt it lol.

REMEMBER NO SITE EXISTS OR MADE THIS IS JUST AN IDEA<--

The site would be way too late.

 

Most players that bought SWTOR are already boycotting it and have been since last spring when 1.2 came out, myself included.

 

I would use the time you would need to make the website for something more constructive, like a website dedicated to cats fighting dogs - with lightsabers.

I want to be Uncle Owen again.

I've taken your considerations under consideration and I consider it a bad idea.  Like the poster above me said, use your time for something a little more constructive.

I'll be honest, not interested in the least.  The development team has been gutted.  A site focusing on just the negative will not get any respect or response. 

 

A group of players presenting a positive outlook and player feedback would be a much better idea.  EA doesn't care why people left, they've already scapegoated people for that.  They are interested in getting players to try F2P and eventually subscribe.

Come on allready! Just stop playing if you don't like it. Since you are a rabid fan of SW, make a good bye post stating how disapointed you are, if you have to.

 

Then, considering seriously looking at your life. Being into something at a level that would make you waste time creating a site like the one you mention...it's not healthy. And no, no amount of "well maybe not to you, but we are all different" will make it right.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over while expecting different results.

I think the op missed his opportunity 4 months ago.

Most of us are already boycotting SWTOR.   Gosh knows I am my sub ran out with all the free time back in August.  I refuse to ea any more money for this game ever.  It can go free to play for all I care I still would not play it. 

They would have to have a total rewrite of the game and get rid of that stupid hero engine that they are using, for me to even consider putting swtor back on my hard drives.  At this point EA needs to pay me.

I'd support SuperDonk's site.

You can do all of that on the forums here, so why would I go to a separate site for that?  Same reason I don't go to fansites, you can do the same thing here.

I just don't understand the need for such a site.  I mean if you don't like the game why bother playing it, and more importatnly why bother spending your time and money to bash it?   There is no logical reason, as you can voice your opionions on sites like these, or the many other sites that cater to mmo's, even swtor specifically.   

 

I just think your time, effort, and hard earned money can be better used in perhaps a game you do like.  what ever that be.

 

Best of luck to you finding the game you do like.

 

GAME OVER!

What is "real"? How do you define "real"?

10/08/12 5:32:21 PM#14

Why bother?  If you don't like a game, stop playing it.  "Vote with your wallet".

 

Then come on this site and talk about how lame the game is and how much better it could have been.  :)

 

Of course, this applies to any game.

You want me to pay to play a game I already paid for???

Isn't that what most of us are doing indirectly by not playing their game?  I don't think a website is needed but if you have the time and energy and feel strongly about it, knock yourself out.  But they spent a lot of money up front to make the game and it's not paying off like they expected: I think that is probably punishment enough.

OP  10/08/12 6:52:39 PM#17

lol interesting responses hehe. Yeah i think i missed my mark i did think about it months ago but these respnses are what i thought.

id like to adress some the responses

 

You cant be real on the official forums lolz

You cant be real here on this site belive me when i say that ( i can prove this very easily this site panders to game companies why i prefer gamebreaker)

Ive seen what a so called positive site does and thats nothing but pander and lie and try to make the game look good when the reality is its a pos. lol darth hater is a good example of that. Bieng a carebear doesnt do anything but destroy the game more and cause uneeded nerfs and worse 

why consider doing this and just move on? well ive waited a long time for another star wars mmo i beta swtor and it was good and fun but they left it for dead. I refuse to be one these care bears who still fight for a game/EA that doesnt give a crap about you? Thats what i find funny is why are those people that say move on if you dont like staying? its part of the reason the game is going badly and downhill not all but part of it.

I have thought about making a ea boycott site honestly would be a massive undertaking though but i have thought about it.

yes im 37 and retired

I am a Star Wars fan also, I am old enough to have seen all but the first one in the Cinema.

Yeah I would have liked for ToR to have been a better game and think they missed the mark ( IMO )for what I was looking for.

My advice. Devote all that time and energy into something more productive. Its just a game, either play it and enjoy it for what it is, or move on to another interest.

There are many things in life to devote your time too, and most are better than worrying about ToR. It is what it is.

Who cares honestly?  The game has been out 10 months now and most people have their own perception of it.  Even so your site would only attract those who are upset enough to be vocal about it in an unrestricted outlet (aka flaming the shit out of it).  

 

The whole idea seems juvenile and even if it were January or February after it came out all you would be doing is pouring gasoline on the haters/ hopefuls who realized the game didn't pan out.  This idea offers no constructive criticism of any kind.

Let me say this much......

 

 

I was one of the players that followed this shipwreck from 2008.....I had an official website start date from 08....I was HARDCORE, capice?

 

I spent hard earned money on the collectors edition, based on a lie that there would be 'added' items in the future as well...LIES

 

I was lied to by Daniel Erickson and BIO/EA repeatedly. No, im not going to link or explain the lies, deal with it.

 

This game deserves all the animosity it has, and having a website devoted to its trashiness poetic justice......

 

 

I back you 100 percent. Don't listen to the Biodrones that still blindly defend it. This game has negative karma all over it, and well deserves all and any such attention....
