Checking back waiting to hear the date for F2P.  I liked this game in trial well enough NOT to pay for it.

I like it and will return at some point when it goes F2P.  There is also a bit of a morbid fascination with how some people go gaga over this game as if they would play it if it wasn't a SW MMO.

 

It takes a lot more than an IP I love to keep me as a gamer.  I like quite a few IPs and am open to new ones.  I would never continue to play a lackluster game simply becauase of the world it's set in.

Star wars is one of my favorite movie series of all time.. hell I even enjoyed the new movies and enjoy the clone wars show....as a huge fan of both theme park MMOs and star wars you would think there is no way I could not enjoy this game...but alas it became one of the biggest gaming dissapointments I have had...I don't see the point of coming here to bash the game over and over because of this but remain very dissapointed

I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

I went through the CU, NGE with galaxies and in a way the same thing is happening with TOR. You have on one side people that are critical of the game and developers who are called haters but in reality we want the game to succeed, and on the other side you have people who claim the game is perfect and that Bioware can do no wrong while the game spirals into the ground.

I didn't break Ilum then close it down, Screw up PVP after 1.2 then 1.3, over nerf or over buff classes, come up with a lame resolve system, have a magic PVP stat that they added in the last few beta's against most of the communities wishes, remove a bunch of gear and items from beta, make a useless crafting system, space on rails, create a bunch of gear grinds and credit sinks, poor legacy system, release broken OP's, or lack any real public test server, come up with the gear RNG system of failure, choose an engine that was in beta and not optimize it, or open way too many servers at launch, not release a LFG tool at launch, dual spec, broken back fill for WZ's, lower the TTK to 3 globals, not have any tiers in PVP, any real type of end game thats not mind numbing, Valor Farmers, premades vrs pug farming, or FTP... i could go on for 5 pages but i wont.

No if players would actually demand higher quality or even just to have a real test server with real testing that would even be a step in the right direction but most of the feedback would go ingnored as it did with the Betas i took part in. Its actually sad about the quality of updates Bioware has been giving. look at my first post on this account as i lost my old account, I think I gave it a rating of 9 and I loved the story part of the game it wasn't until i hit 50 with 2 chars and 48 on another and all the broken crap every patch and things not working no eta's or communication at all really.

Hey all I wanted to do was play a SW MMO that worked and would be more than happy to pay monthly for it, but i guess thats too much to ask for, and considering the 2.4 million box sales compared to what they have last stated about subs over 500k less than a million I can safely say that I am not alone. 

White Knights and fanbois kill what could be a great game, Imagine if everyone left SWG with the NGE i would be willing to bet the CU version would still be around, or maybe the Pre CU, If the people didn't rage at CCP and its cash shop i would be willing to bet the game would be PTW by now. 

So in closing people who bitch and stop funding poor habits from developers are gamers who love games.. White Knights bring us FTP with loot boxes,cash grabs and crappy games. You should demand better as a gamer imo and hopefully as this game fails it sends a clear message to the industry. EA/Bioware could turn things around if they could get people with real talent and direction and not these clowns they have currently but the ironic part is anyone with those qualities would never work of EA anyway.. why would they? Reap was you have sown EA...

Your post is totally illogical and also egocentric. If someone eats a spoon of coffee ice cream and their tongue says they like it, who are you to say that they should have tried the Premium Coffee instead, or try another flavor because they obviously don't know whats good for them?

Perfect example of the white knight/fanboi who does not get it. Did you even read his post?

Plus its like the old SWG veteran refugee forum. Yet again we get to sit and watch another SW MMO die a slow painful, horrible but yet well deserved death.

Im not bitter about it and i really could care less either way tbh, its just a perfect storm of bad stuff happening to the genre everything from TOR being a bad cut, copy, and paste job of WoW, to the market being flooded with this type of crap MMO, Bioware's lack of talent or experience in MMO's( IMO its both), Bioware's secrecy like its pre launch hype(Soon) that just kills me!!! LOL, when in fact most of the MMO's Ive played always let the base know about some kind of yearly path of development of things not written in stone but what they are shooting for. CCP does this and even SOE did this with SWG.

SWG was live for 8 years, SWTOR wont take that long

so NO COMPARISON

For people who also read D3 threads or the latest trainwreck threads intermingled with some Eve Online Loan Scam / C&P Trolling, is there are a forum fully dedicated to linking/discussing the juiciest threads on the net?

Yes, I did. I tried to make my response as simple as  possible but I guess some just can't comprehend the simple. I'm curious, since I'm a fan of multiple games including GW2, is there a new name you could use other than white knight/ fan boi to bait individuals into responding that have better things to do then hover in forums of games they don't like?

From the list:

1. Nothing better to read right now.

2. Morbid fascination.


Not on the list:

1. Still amazed that EA / Bioware could be so out of touch with the current market.
