    well according to many on the site people who don't feel this is the greatest MMO ever are the vocal minority and have no clue what they are talking about

    greatest MMO ever my ass

    Your ass or someone else's, it will go down as the greatest of it's era. MMOs continue to evolve but it's the best thing going right now.

    lol no it wont.. WoW will,  sadly or gladly depending on who you talk to but its still in wow's era

    Yeah I actually agree that number does seem lower than it should be.

    How is this good?

    With all the hype and it being a bioware game I find the number a bit of a joke. Still enjoying my time in tor but honestly I can't see myself staying here longer than a month maybe two to level a char on each side, and despite all the exitement in the first week and a half it seems to be the consensus in my guild as well.

    And the fastest at using the hype :

    In the USA, G4 scored Star Wars: The Old Republic a perfect 5 out of 5 and PC Gamer rated the game a 93%. Australia’s AUSgames.com and Germany’s Games Aktuell scored the game 95%, and Sweden’s GameReactor gave the Old Republic a 90% rating.

    Naw they dont use each other to hype.. do they:P

    It is comical to watch people take the time to post 5 pages of "It will fail anyway" posts. Does it really bother people to see the game do well?...and it is doing really well. I have yet to hear anyone in game bash it. As a matter of fact, they do nothing but praise it. So unless the servers crash and everyone loses their accounts, I think it will be just fine for a LONG time to come.

     

    I am sorry that ToR's success is bothering some of you. But, the almighty GW2 will be here soon enough and you all can have something to do.

    Just LoL.

     1).  Is over 1 mill of subs till the 20 of dec, where most of the people didnt put a subscription until after the 22th of dec, and is growing every single day. 

    2). swtor is the most successful launch in the MMO history.

    3). haters gonna hate.

    Launch success is meaningless if the game doesn't hold the subs.

    Stupidity is a virtue, if you played lotro no doubt you would have been at rank 12 by now...

    1. Read the article, then apologize to me

    2. Who is talking about launch?

    3. Sure, while I stated I was still enjoying the game but didn't see the longetivity in it, I am a hater, thanks! one less grind I have to worry about.

    The 150,000 and 2 million right?

    IMO all three are extreme but what ever floast your boat bro

    HA that's priceless, first of all there are more than that now, second to suggest the game is anything short of a huge success is absurd.

    It managed to do something that almost every major MMO launch in the last 3 years did. ( WoW, Age of Conan, Rift and maybe even Aion)   The thing to watch is how many subscription actually hang on past the first 30 days and the critical 60 day mark.

    Age of Conan never hit 1 ,000,000  subscriptions... It's big merit is that it sold 1,000,000 boxes, and that figure took longer than a week to make.

    1,000,000 subscriptions is significant, all considering they only released in two major regions.

    So in ONE month, SWTOR subscriptions will be lower than  AOC, WAR, and LOTRO, which are all mmorpg's quite older, that did not do nearly as well initially as SWTOR, and also suffered inevitable decline... You are telling us that SWTOR, within one month, will have less subs than these?

    Care you show me your math, or at least show me the drugs you are taking.

    Didnt WoW have something like 200k subs initially. Not that it matters anything today, but as far as I know WoW didnt have that many subs when it started.

    inflated numbers... or a lot of cancels..

                Count me as a cancel. I guess they must have included me because I registered the pre-order but after trying out the free beta weekened I cancelled immediately. But your right they probably included evey preorder and registration regardless of cancellation. 

     

                The trust sign will be after the 1st month when we get a concrete number or how many people are paying monthly! 

    I would give you a guest pass to SWOTR, but then I wouldn't be able to find a way to live with myself afterwards....

    No, that's a huge lobby, not a town, the reason why the people are standing still in Orgrimmar like some road signs is because they are waiting for one of the several queues to pop up. I'm not saying it's a good or a bad thing, just stating the obvious.

     

    Also WoW has no other reason to go out to the world other than leveling and gathering, I hope the "big towns" in TOR will stay less populated just because it at least has some world pvp areas and a few reasons to get out there opposed to practically none that WoW has.

    side note new content was in production before cbt was released...now end game new planents pvp and space combat so ummm yeah.....to all the haters go play your game already and leave this one alone please.

  • PurutzilPurutzil Posts: 3,039Member Uncommon

    Premature by far. You need people to actually PAY for subs before you can claim that as a good statistic. Even then, your still needing to count for people possibly multi-accounting, though since its common anywehre its not as big of a deal.

    Either way, wait till they actually have people PAY for a sub before posting. Not being a doomsayer, but it makes little sense to announce about it having so many people subscribed when it just came out and no monthly fees were given.
