Are you seriously considering making a website dedicated to something you hate? What a waste of time! Actually... this kinda reminds me of some overused plot you get from some crime drama like CSI. We've all seen it.. the one where a celebrity has a stalker and when they break into the guys home there are dozens newspaper articles about the said celebrity stuck to the walls like post-it notes. The mandatory messages of hate scribbled acrsoss the wall in thick red inky letters all pointing to the fact that the stalker is not in full controlk of his faculties. I particularly like when the camera zooms in to a picture with a knife thrust into one of the eyes.

I can imagine your website looking something that, except instead of a celeb you have a pantheon of developers to vent your hate to and for the centre piece of your alter of hatred you should have a twisted and torn figure of a Jedi with a lightsaber thrust in his anus.

Or you can just move on with your life. There will be no more Star Wars MMO for at least 10 years, I'm sure Bioware or EA paid a lot of cash to Lucsarts for the rights to publish and use the Star Wars brand and I'm pretty certain one of the contracts would state that EA/Bioware pay the millions of dollars on condition they have exclusive rights for x number of years. So forget about another Star Wars MMO.

People can freely express their views about SWTOR--as long as it is bad. God forbid that any of can express a view that it is a great game.

Those that like the game are drowned out in the sea of hatred. See OP.

I would visit your site and place my comments about why I like this game :)

I suppose that if it is supposed to be real it would allow player who like it to have the same right to saying that  too /grin.

 

I agree with most of folks here though. Put your time into something constructive. We all like different things and we should not be told by anybody (fanbois nor haters) if we should play any game or not. This is everybody's right to decide.

Just like nobody should tell you who you are supposed to vote for president /grin

Boycotted it in beta. The vast majority of people have quit, it really sunk itself. Aint much need for anything else atm, the EAMythicWare drones will still cling to it, aint nothing you can do about that.

Nah, just not buying any new products from EA is boycotting.

 

Look how it's worked out for Funcom.

I was just yanking your chain. I have no feelings towards SWTOR other than mild disapointment. Certainly not violence, no, I put violence behind me when I left prison. Electric shock therapy and years of heavy medication may have helped as well and so being chained to the radiator.

Just what the internet needs - another website complaining about something frivilous and unimportant.

Didnt this game go Free 2 Play and then release some big patch that let you see twilek titties? 

 

Yeah SWTOR is now a mature F2P MMO that focuses soley on ERPing in the imaginitve childhood fantasy world of Star Wars. 

 

Liam Neeson also voices every character now, even the chicks, so basically all you do is have sex with a bunch of busty blue babes with the voice of qui-gon-jin. 

 

Also I heard Richard Garriot plays SWTOR from Space, while Brad Mcquaid plays on a 56k connection in hell. I mean, He did sell his soul to Satan afterall (SOE).

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 thi 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.

 

THIS IS AN IDEA AND SOMETHING IM CONSIDERING <-- There is no site in reality or being made just a question and idea

I was able to figure out not to buy SWToR by everything I read before release. It just sounds like you're cranky you couldn't figure it out yourself.

I think most people are pointing out that OP's proposed site would either be pointless, fruitless, or time better used for something more constructive. These are all valid points, but none of us are OP.

If OP is so hung up on SWTOR, or EA in general, who are we to say how he should spend his time or energy.

If OP thinks it would be cathartic, go for it I guess. Just prepare for the eventuality that your hatred of a thousand suns may burn itself out; and that isn't a bad thing.

There, I got to play pop pyschologist too. (You should have expected diagnoses OP)

And OP, remember in case you suddenly find yourself the leader of a nation.

Boycott = An internationally acceptable form of protest.

Blockade = An act of war.

Have fun storming the castle.

i still fail to see where all the hate is coming from, it is a BioWare game, made by BioWare, based on another BioWare game made by BioWare and if you had played any BioWarwe game the bast years you would have known perfectly well what you were getting in to.

 

It was even stated here on this site several times that it was going to be pretty much what it turned out to be. It is a nice little mmo with a great story for most of it that really missed the bus by not going the F2P route. Should BW have gone in to the MMO market.. No, it is not really their thing and they lack the skillset to make a really good MMO but that being said i still think it is unfair to blame BW for the death of SWG (in my opinion this is the only "logic" place for such hate to come from.) as that game was seriously dead long before that, not even the free gametime after the hack-snafu brought any life back to it.

 

As for supporting any hate-site. Not something i am going to do. I have better things to do.
