    Should we queue up the "should have been in at launch" crowd, or the "too little, too late" crowd.

     

     

    Honestly, I'm suprised there is anything coming out in the wake of the f2p announcement. I figured everything new would happen after the conversion.

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

    I bought the collectors edition but im not interested in their free to steal u model.I prefere gw 2 b2p model wich is more versatile and gives u more content without the need to pay for additional content except expansions.I f they had done the same with swtor it would be a different story but for this free as they call it crap transformation im more than discouraged to try this out again.

    Besides we will have gw2 b2p mmo so why should i bother to play swtor when i know ill have to pay extra.

    I think some guys/devs have not realised yet that free to play and all that crap models soon will end and only b2p models will exitst after gw2 comes out.

    jtls=jump to light speed starwars galaxies space expansion

    and besides its easy to say that its gonna have feature x or y in the future thats not important the more important thing is for them to show what will they add now not in 5 or 6 months or longer :)

    The thing I like about this game is I can shoot people with a blaster rifle, the thing that kills me is that I have to use a big stupid clunky cannon,

    Dangerous, looking to the future is. Always in motion, it is. I sense a bleak dark existence in the future for this one. I see emptiness, lonliness, sorrow.

    There was nothing interesting in that video. The devs need to fix what is wrong and not do the same boring things over and over...

    Future?  They did the same mistake as Age of Conan , releasing the cool stuff way after release.  

     SWTOR future is like AoC , a dead game , the end. 

  • OzmodanOzmodan Hilliard, OHPosts: 7,183Member Uncommon
    Yeah, they really need to add a space expansion and remove that silly crap on rails they have.  The lack of spaceflight, beyond some dumb arcade junk, completely nixxed the game for me.  Until they grasp that fact, they are just spinning their wheels and going nowhere.

    hm... more gear grind and a new opportunity to re-roll.  Thanks, but no thanks.  This still does not address the flaws for my mates and I.  Glad to see they are continuing to support the game, just not in ways that will encourage me back.  Good news for those who like it though!

     

    Cheers!

    Correct me if I am wrong here but didn't Bioware already announced this about 2 months back? And isn't it just one Operation, one Warzone (not plural)?

    As to the video, it looks fine but that is the problem with video previews of anything....they can edit them to look exciting. What they don't show, in this case, is that once you have done the 5 extra levels and the new planet (Makeb), done the Operation that week and if you don't like PvP....you have nothing much to do. Going "f2p" won't fix that. And this update doesn't do anything to address that.

    Let's party like it is 1863!

    I thought they said they were going to "massively change space combat just after launch"? Still waiting. I would have played it for longer had the combat been better, and had they allowed PVP space combat. A shame really.

    Bozo the Cathar is the best... dude. A human with pointly ears and big eyes... What a shame for Star Wars.

    why is this in general shouldn't it be under the game general forum folder?
  • KtaraKtara Victoria, BCPosts: 37Member

    This is the first time I've ever agreed with all the posters above me :)  I'm in the "too little too late" camp.  And is it just me or is the Cathar just a human with facepaint?  I can do that in real life if I wanted to.

    They still just don't get it.

     

    They continue to create content that will be redundant. This is like an adding in another battleground. How many times can people play the same garbage without wanted to hurl. Almost eveyrone has done that in WoW and will tire of it in any game post-WoW.

     

    People cry for player-driven content or at least some meaningful social abilities, e.g., creating a few blank planets for player-made cities and rival cities etc.

    HAHHAHA the people boasting about GW2,  funny stuff  GW does not give updates like new content UNLESS you pay, SWTOR has given many, many updates with the monthly fee...

     

    So once your out of content in GW2, I CAN see it now!! GW2 sucks, OMG, wah!!  You people on this forum make me laugh how much you cry about games, get a new hobby if youc an't afford to play.

     Yes yes yes...many many many updates...

    like the massive killer content update that allowed people to...move a UI window!

    or the update that blew the genre out of the water with its killer ability to marry a human to a Twi'lek that gives birth to a Sith!

    so many updates to boast about that explains the reason for paying $15 a month!

    The game is going F2P for a REASON...deal with the reality that the game SUCKS and isnt worth paying for.
