I decided to try this game again only because some friends are playing again and I like playing with these guys so much that I'm in.
I'm actually really enjoying the game right now. I know most people are very vocal about how much they dislike this game, myself included, but here are the things I noticed and how I am playing, which I think is the main factor in my enjoyment of the game.
Well the server I'm on is full now. This was a huge reason I left, the last server I played on was a ghost town. Mergers helped out a lot and I guess F2P too.
I'm soloing some of my story line and that's it! Like I said, I have a great static group and it is probably %80 of why I am having a good time. We unlock all the group quests on each planet and then run flashpoints and pvp. We do some solo quests here and there to unlock stuff, but we do as much group content as possible, and keep up our story. We do have to run some flashpoints maybe twice, but that's not that much of a problem.
The thing I noticed that still bugs me is the layout of the zones. This still feels, stuffy, enclosed, I have always struggled to describe exactly what it is about them, but a big part of it is that we are so damn isolated from the other faction. I love PVP in this game. I know there are some balance issues right now, but it's still fun. This has always been one of the things that kept me playing. I don't always like PVP in games, but in this one, it's fun. I just wish I would run into more of the opposite faction out in the world.
Space combat probably still sucks, but the good part is that I don't know because I have't had a reason to try it again.
The group content in this game is fun. The story has always been decent if not good. It's certainly not my favorite type of design for an MMO, but I'm better with it now that I've gotten over my initial disapointment.
