Mass Exodus?

TorgrimTorgrim GothenburgPosts: 2,088Member

Been reading a lot on these boards and on other gaming forums that people are leaving TOR before the free month is up, either be it at max level with fully geared toon players or people gotten bored before hitting max level.

Have any of you seen this on your server or less logins in your guild or friends stopped playing?

If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    I wouldn't site this forum as a serious resource.

    Nope. And when I made some alts a few days ago, the starting worlds were even more crowded compared to pre-launch. My server is brimming with people of all level ranges at the moment.

    ^^ What he said.

    This site is not to be unbias, you always have people ready to jump the gun and say a game has failed or won almost immediately after launch. We're still in the first month, we'll have a good idea of the core playerbase when people start paying.

    90% (accurate figure) of my guild have stopped logging in.

    I know this for a fact as not only have me or the other couple people not seen them, but their levels haven't changed. All stopped around levels 16-25. All around last week.

    No Forum about a video game, especially an mmo can be used as a serious resource

     

    Obviously if you purchased the game and are enjoying it you are too busy having fun and playing to come post on forums.

     

    If you didnt like the game and now have nothing to do your prolly going to go to a forum to bash it.

    The only problem with people i have is the fact that there is so many about that they're stealing my kills and thus, stealing my precious exp! So there's lots and lots of people about and the guild im in has several level 50's constantly playing and lots of activity from our lower levels as well.

    I guess its just the servers some of these people are on, but the two servers i play on always has tons of people about.

    Well not a fanboi or anything but usually Star Wars MMOs last a very long time according to history.

    I can't wait until the free 30 days expires. Then the ToR players can take over the official ToR forums. I won't even go there since it is nothing but trolling.

    Yep.

    90+ people in off hours on Tython and Coruscant on my alt.

    100+ people Tatooine/Alderaan on my main.

    Helped a friend do some class quests on Nar Shadaa, 60+ people.

    Even more Imperial side.

     

    People need to just shut up and STOP all the doom and gloom. Even if TOR loses 50% of it's subscribers, it'll still be the 2nd biggest MMO in the west and extremely profitable.

    If people rushed to 50 and got bored it's their own problem.

    Doesn't say anything about the game or the state of the game. Anyone with a 50 who leaves will probably come back because of patches and content updates. Has been the same story in WoW for 8 years.

    What will those TOR players go back to? WoW? Rift? Lol I can't imagine going back to either after playing TOR.

    Will they wait till GW2 or TSW? No, they'll be back to TOR because if they are already 50 they are MMO addicts.

     

    Stop. Just.. stop.

  • VegettoVegetto WorcesterPosts: 841Member

    I see 100's of people on every planet i goto.

    I actually see maybe 2 at most every few hours.

    Wont make a difference.  Ever seen the Rift boards?  Some people seem to pay to complain, and then when legit complaints are posted they got jumped all over.

    Away with your calm logic and reason. These forums are no place for such qualities!!!

    Post a screenie, i'll post a screenie, and we will see who's right.

    Bare in mind, yours is much harder to prove. I haven't seen or spoken to a person in days.

    Hex droid, check it out, that's the server, try any planet except fleet.

    The thing is.. does it matter?

     

    If you like the game you will keep playing... if you don't like the game you will not keep playing.

     

    If you are an employee of EA/Bioware or an investor you might care.. but there are better places to express concern or delight.

    Moderator's on this site allow certain posters to create endless troll threads. Yet "warn" people for giving recommendations... account *pending* deletion because.. why bother.

  • Creslin321Creslin321 Baltimore, MDPosts: 5,359Member

    Couldn't tell yah, I already quit ;).

    That aside, I don't think that SWTOR is going to spectacularly crash and burn after the first month.  I don't think it has that much longevity though.  It will probably have a lot of subscribers for several months...years though, I doubt.

    Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

  • GunnJDGunnJD North Hollywood, CAPosts: 5Member

    All the trolling and doom & gloom is just weird at this point. 

    The game is fun, it's going to be a hit, lots of people are going to play it. 

    Why do you care what other people are doing? Just play it if you like it, or don't.

    How many times has the mass exodus from WoW ever happened, and how many times has doom been predicted?

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

  • nerovipus32nerovipus32 dublinPosts: 2,735Member

    I cancelled my sub aswell and wont even play out my free 30 days, first time i've done that with an mmo.

    This isn't wow we are talking about though.

     Granted, but I could say the same thing about Rift, WAR, or AoC :).

    Anyway, I'm not saying that a mass exodus will definitely happen.  I'm just saying that we don't know at this point, and it's all speculation.  There are decent arguments both for and against a mass exodus.

    Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

    Thank goodness.  Enjoy your not-playing!

    No, we're talking about a game that had a larger subscription base than WoW at launch.  The doom and gloom posts from people on this board who hope this game fails are laughable.
