Well you can pretend you are not a victim of SWTOR but you are. Even though you get some enjoyment from the title, you are missing out on a lot. Even by playing this game instead of others you are choking off your potential for some better gameplay. I will bear this burden for you and others like you :)

Oh for goodness sakes get over yourself. No one that is enjoying TOR needs you to bear any burden for them. They play the game because they want to. They play the game because they enjoy it. If they didn't enjoy the game, they wouldn't be playing it. They aren't missing out on anything.Has it ever occured to you that MAYBE, just maybe, they enjoy what the game offers and couldn't give a damn about sitting in a chair, playing house on Tattoine or any of the other things that TOR doesn't have that has given posters like you heartburn for the last two years?

Here's another radical thought for you... do you know that there was many who actually played SWG and thought it was***gasp*** the most boring piece of crap ever and they would rather watch grass grow than play that game again? I know, how can ANYONE play that great game and not like it? That concept just doesn't compute for you. 

Sorry for coming off rude but arrogant and condenscending posts like yours is why the SWG community has the rep it does. 

If it's a trivial matter then there's no need to respond. I can say 100% that I don't care if anyone enjoyed SWG. It's dead. As for SWTOR, Game sucks, it is what it is.

I think i already know that. My intention is not to change you or anything. Please feel free to act like a victim of Bioware as well as its playerbase who are supporting the game and hurt you in process even though they don't even know about it.

I just do not agree with targetting the playerbase and generalise them. And no SWTOR consumers don't need pass to enjoy utopian experince on forums but that also doesn't mean that it is ok to treat them as some collateral damage.

I survived three tours to Afghanistan...i don't think a peice of software can make me feel like a victim. Like i said earlier i don't care if you hate the game.. but yes for someone like me who comes to forums for discussing MMO, when people start attacking playerbase it just defeats the whole point of discussion regarding pros and cons of the game in question. 

As far as potential of better game play is concerned you are once again assuming that i don't play other MMOS. So nope my ptotential isn't being wasted. I don't even play SWTOR that much. 

Well then there's no victim then because you said so I guess. I used to be the dictator of a third world country, and I can tell you that there are no insignificant injuries. My time as El Presidente has no bearing on this conversation though.

Furthermore, It's a little beyond the point where the erudite audience at MMORPG.com dispassionately discusses the benefts and drawbacks of christmas light strings on speeders.

As for that part in red, I don't play the game at all. You could aspire to that level of greatness too, you're already so close. Just stop logging in, it's very easy.

I wish people would stop mentioning SWTOR. It was such a misguided concept from the beginning. How incredibly stupid to spend literally millions on voiceovers and stick it on top of a POS game like they did. What an insult to the gaming community. It should be buried and forgotten. I physically cringe every time I think about my experience with that failure (played in final beta-quit at lvl 20 with no intention to ever look at it again).

Not necessarily, The Matrix was ultimate fail as servers were dead and reason why it shut down. The same would be for  Vanguard if shuts down instead of go F2P, but SWG (an COH) still had healthy servers when they shut down, and SWG just got shut down to make way for SWTOR, a busniess decision. If they let SWG run alongside SWTOR, and then people did indeed ditch SWG for SWTOR, and then it got shut down because it was totally dead, then it would be the "ultimate fail", but SOE/LA never let it get that far. They just saw them as Star Wars MMOs, and that people playing SWG would just go play SWTOR.

 

 


 

The game could be 'healthy' on life support, but when I came back from time to time after free invites, the servers were barren, player search ended up with 1-2 tops...
Noone to be seen outside a few hardcore refusing to quit and the bot spammers in some cities.

They should've merged all players on like 1-2 gameservers.

 

That was my experience as well . I'd get the free invite in my e-mail, log in and within 30-60 minutes log back out.The game ran for nine years and was given more than enough chances to succeed.  If the game was doing good it wouldn't have shut down. Period. Anyone that tries to say differently is just blowing smoke and living in denial.

SWTOR seems like a weird game now, it's more about dressing up and showing your blingbling you spent cartel$$$$ on than an actual game, even pvp is broken. The fleet is full of people just running around on a floating chair or whatnot, I went all around the galaxy with almost no one to be seen and even went over to Corellia and there was nobody at the dailies area. So is SWTOR a faction fleet hangout game now?


0 of ~500 guild members logged in besides me, 0 of ~50 friends on list logged on either, so what kind of players is SWTOR attracting now then? I didn't recognize a single name.

coming back to the OP, any chance of resurrection? Probably not.

EA obtains exclusive rights. Goodbye to anything that doesn't attract the "core gaming audience"

I am kind of lazy to research Disney but i think since EA bought the licensing rights to future games,Disney's only intention is on the movie side of things.

Yeah that kind of irks me, it's guaranteed that SW based games from EA will be garbage.

SWG had a huge flaw that was potentially devastating. Was it a failed game? I believe it was. And that there were more contriuting factors in SoE's decision to overhaul the game to try to save it. In a word (OK 3 words). "The Jedi Grind".

Most of this is my own half baked theory but I believe it to be true. I played SWG through Divided and JTL before I quit, but when I did, the talk on the server by the players was mostly about how far along in the grind to becoming a Jedi you were. I think the devs totally underestimated the playerbase's motivation to undertakie this momumental task. I am willing to bet they assumed only the most driven hardcore players would do it and thus only a few elite would become Jedi. But almost without exception, everyone I knew ingame was rushing to get the pre-reqs done to spawn "The Old Man"

SWG was not a Theme Park and could not support a player shift of this magnatude.

Yeah, you didn't stick around to see where all that went.  The NGE took Jedi and made it a starting profession to partly kill that game culture and give the players what they wanted while taking away the greatest desire of an Alpha Class.  Jedi was so unbalancing and a source of unending Customer Support nightmare, they ended up killing a big portion of the game with the changes.  NGE Jedi is no where near the Alpha Class Jedi.  Folks saw this as a slap in the face to all thier invested game time and quit.

 

Pretty much spot on...

I can say as someone who had 16 of the necessary 24 FS boxes full...I was just a tad bit pissed off at the NGE roll-out...And because I needed to open one more base box there was no way I could complete the Village with only 2 weeks left in the CU...3 months after the NGE launch my Guild of 20-25 VERY active players went to 3-5...And outside of a couple Guildies I never saw most of them again...It was very sad...
