hmmm

SWTOR F2P model similar to LOTRO model, that made me not try it out. LOTRO is by far the most pay2win/greedy game out there, all you have to do is just spend $$ and you get any item on the game.

Ill just stick to GW2.

You know what I'd really love to see you do.

An actual 15-20 minute program. You had a lot of great info that you only glossed over.

You could fill 10 minutes easy, I want more depth, more story, more info.

Hell, you could have guest speakers if you dont think there is enough news to fill 15-20 minutes.

 

More damn it!

GW2 does NOT offer EVERYTHING for just one box price. GW1 had many box price additions (pay expansions), and a cash shop. Yes you don't need the new content, but SWTOR is the same. the original game will be FTP. The additions are microtransaction...JUST LIKE GW1.

SWTOR though is not a keeper that GW1 was. Once you do your story there is not much to keep you interested. Why grind gear? PVP don't matter. Just a bunch of repeating arenas. No world immersion. No reason to go to majority of planets once the leveling is done. Bioware pulled a total fail on this game design when they could have done so much more. SOE had the right idea when it started SWG back in the day. If only Bioware would have taken more persistent elements SWG had. 

In any case, the MMO I enjoy now is not GW2, not SWTOR, it is The Secret World. TSW is lots of fun so far. The 3 faction design is nice. PVP design is engaging. Not quite the sandbox SWG was, but so far I am having fun. World is very immersive. Love the fact you can learn every skill in the game with one character. Limits on the active setup, but one can change up between fights. Think of like EVE, where you pick a certain ship to fly but can learn to fly anything. No need for alts unless you want to play other factions. Freedom to make your own character design is a huge plus.

Nothing against GW2. I am sure it will be a solid game like GW1. I had years of enjoyement with that. I am just bored with the fantasy theme. TSW is a refreshing change.

I am really excited for swtor going free to play. I quit because the only good part of the game was the single player story campaign which im not gonna play a monthly fee for, however now that its going free play I can go back and play all the different storylines which is quite exciting!

Vapors writes: Just to make a small info: as much i know gw2 will release many many expansions which costs alot, its not 1 single box price, it will be 3 boxes, lets say it will be 150€ its comparable to some lifetime subscriptions of some games. Sure u dont need the content but i guess u dont wanna play the same content all over again. Tue Aug 07 2012 8:02AM Report

I hate the term free to play when really it is a fremium, or in this case an endless trial with a cash shop.  So either you subscribe or you buy the unlocks in the cash shop.

Or you decide to short change ea and cancel your sub and never buy anything in the shop but still play for free without group/raid/pvp content.  I got a feeling a lot of folks will go that route.

Another good vid from Bill.

I think maybe you feel they should pay you to play their game?
