i am kind of sick of people going on and on about swtor and its flaws and how its a clone and yada yada. i am no fan boi, but i do like mmos.
to be honest. people need to lighten up. i played swtor in beta. and many others before it. its a fine game.
people complain about it being a "wow clone". frankly... lets set the record straight. mmos are mmos and they all have certain features that we have come to expect. they are all clones of each other only in the way that ford and chevy are a clone of a "car". either you are into mmos, or you are not. period.
a lot of the problem these days is not the game itself. many of them are fine games. we as users are just burned out, and getting old and jaded.
i see comparisons to sw galaxies. i played that game... i seem to remember a lot of time spent killing cows, girraffs and giant fleas. then in my off time, i hung out in cantinas and cybersexed some chick for a few credits (who probably wasnt even a female but i was young and idealistic and horny)
back then we were willing to spend hours/days grinding away in our mmo of choice...we wished they were as polished as swtor and other modern games were. (go youtube them. the graphics were laughable)
swtor is a fine game. its we, the users that are the problem. we are in our 30s and 40s and we are jaded. we are expecting it to be something that no mmo ever is or ever was. we are pretty much looking to be sucked into the game ala tron style i think.
lighten up people. enjoy the game. dont rush to level cap... do missions, do the story... make some friends. escape into your toon.... and when you get frustrated, go out side and talk to a real female.
i liked swtor. i am no fan boi and i only know about star wars because of the movies. but i will tell you what. thats enough for me... i get the basic story and idea and its a nice break from the dark ages... if i hear one more person say "mlady" or don another piece of chain mail, i am going to sith slap someone.
