BioWare can market well, and there are a real lot of hard core StarWars fans. Thats about it so far.

My opinion :

Take away the Voice Acting, make it just like wow and it would last much longer.

    So you could not resist on starting your own hate thread? I'm not a SWTOR nor BW fan, in fact I've got a ban for bashing the game on this site, but I play it and can say that it's much better than I ever dared to hope.

    I would really like it without the voice acting. It makes a good mmo, not an mmo.

    You can skip the voice acting and I'm actually doing it with some of the side quests, but then again I love voice acting in major quests and class quest line. It kind of puts RPG in my MMO which I have missed long years.

    Interesting.

    Though I am not sure what you mean exactly with "can market well". Star wars has indeed a huge number of dedicated fans., does this add to the succes ? Or are they on the contrary the most judicairy ones ?

    What would it give if Bioware had made a MMO with the Mass Effect theme ?

    And voice acting, well, It is a small factor. I wonder though what this means for the future. See, most of the NPC quest givers are now with voice. There is more to it then just making it believable. The game takes already 20-21Gig. I would be surprised if voice acting got nothing to do with that. And if they have to make newer content later on, it wil add to he share manhours needed to make it. You don't have to be a rocket scientist to see that any later add ons will have a cost factor which will be significantly higher with then without voice-acting.

    Question remains what it adds to the simple enjoyment of the actual play ? Is this the feature we were waiting for ? Graphics are important, sound is important and the general mechanics better not strife with the gameplay. All this has to be up to standard. All I get from voice acting is that somebody plays out what I can read or see.

    It undeniable adds to the story, but it does not make the story. And it does not make the game. It certainly does not make half the game, that is plainly exagerated.

    I can't believe how many haters there are. Really, I can't. I bought the game, and didn't expect to like it so much. After being let down time and time again by other hyped up releases of games, and I have tried probably all of them. I can't make a complete assessment of the game, i'm only in the 20s' but one thing is for sure, I will stay at least a few months for sure. After that, we'll see.

    Bottom line,  I'm having a blast, more than I thought I would. I hope Bioware is smart about how/when they update the game and add content.

    The OP couldn't be more off base. it's totally fun. Granted no MMO is for everyone. However this is certainly not like WoW.. if anything it's more Like Guild Wars in persistant world.

    If someone doesn't share a similar view point with you, it does not mean that they are a "hater". It's called differentiating opinions. Just because people are vocal about their view points doesn't mean it's some form of hate. Can we stop with this stuff already?

    Yet another well reasoned and fully verifiable informative post! You guys win, I actually hate this game. You've just provided so many great reasons to back up your claims that others might call baseless.

    Gee, I can't wait to quit this game and go play, what was it again? I think you forgot to tell me about the other game that is going to provide me with as much fun a this one.

    Which mmo was it that I haven't tried that I'm going to like more than this?

    No, we can't! It's Star Wars, and it has reinvented the internet. Stop spewing hate and get back to reality. It is a proven fact that it is impossible to dislike TOR unless you are a hater of everything fun and sacred. It's also a proven fact that there is nothing wrong with the game, and anyone who states otherwise is also a hater.
