I played SWTOR at launch, then about a month after and getting a character to cap, quit like a lot of people. About three or four weeks ago, I started playing again, on a whim. I wanted to see if anything had changed, and it had, and I decided to subscribe. I do not regret subscribing and will likely sub again(the first time for me to sub to a game for two months in a row in several years).
On topic, Galactic Strongholds was released for subscribers like myself today. This expansion is really awesome. The amount of content they put into the game with this was pretty mindblowing. The amount of ways you can get decorations and the little things that the Stronghold allow you to do is insane. I like that they tie some of the decorations into running Flashpoints...helps with finding groups for flashpoints, since everyone has a reason to run them all now.
I'm not a great 'reviewer', I guess. This post isn't a jab at haters either, it's just an expression of elation. This game is getting more and more awesome all the time now. I just wish they'd fix some of the bugs that are still in the game since beta. :P
I'd also like some of you to take away from this that even though some of these MMOs we've seen in the last 3-10 years 'failed' or were 'bad' at launch, sometimes its good to take a revisit to these games down the line. You might be surprised with how much better an old mmo can be with some improvements over the new mmos that come out and have less content and more bugs. Just a thought.
