I enjoyed the Beta, it was immersive the quests were very good and I loved playing the Trooper but I won't be playing on launch as it will get boring for me very fast. I also will not pay £40 for a subscription based game when we all know it will be £5 in a few months.
Sadly for Bioware who have clearly put huge effort into this game I predict a mass exodus after 3 months. Once you have tried a few of the classes and played through the story there is very little sandbox to keep PvP players involved.
WARNING I AM ABOUT TO MENTION A GAME THAT CAUSES SOME PEOPLE TO CRY
When I played WOW for 5 or 6 years it was not the story or the quests that kept me playing, it was the ability to create my own adventures with the amazing world PvP that the game offered. Yes I know it's dreadful now which is why I left during WOTLK but anyone who played vanilla and BC will know what I mean.
In SWTOR there is very little crossover between factions, you simply don't run into the enemy players, it's designed with PvE in mind, you can tell by the zone layouts and the lack of PvP contested questing areas. If my guild wanted to go attacking enemy towns and cities it would be very hard to do so as the game layout is all catering for PvE.
I found levelling up very safe and boring as far as PvP was concerned, I never got ganked once, never even saw a sith and I was talking to other people even higher level than me and they never saw one either, this was on a full server with a 40 minute queue.
All you have if you are a PvP player is the battlegrounds and they are horrible in any MMO tbh but in SWTOR they take on a whole new level of crap. Huttball? WTF? American Football? Are they taking the piss? Why would anyone outside of America want to play this shocking game, especially in a combat MMO.
If I were a PvE star wars fan from America I would buy it.... but I am a PvP star wars fan from England so am not
