Been playing since about halfway through early access and its easily the most enjoyment I've gotten from an MMO since WoW. There are a few things I think even the most staunch supporters of this game must admit are off-putting.
1: World is very closed-off and linear
By this I mean that zones feel like there is set roads, and quest areas that are accessed via those roads. However, if you want to run from one quest area to the one right next to it 9/10 times there will be a wall or mountains blocking your route, making you have to run back to the road, then to the next area. Makes for a lot of tedious travel and is one of the few things they SHOULD HAVE copied from WoW, open world.
2: Galactic Trade Network (Auction House)
Easily the most annoying UI in this game, forget the health bars and companion complaints the AH is so tedious. No option to sort armor by location (head, chest, etc) and cant search an item name unless you put in what category and subcategory it falls under. What if I don't know what category it falls under? I had this happen when trying to find a mat for a crafting recipe, went to search for it and realized I had no idea what crew skill gathered it. Had to go online and look it up. Also, there is no bids, just buyouts.
3. Cover Mechanic
Not even sure how they thought this was acceptable. Tried playing a smuggler because I didnt see many people playing them and now I know why. I always ended up in an awkward cover spot just getting shot at, and when I try to shoot back since my character isnt even facing the enemy he would just leave cover and stand up. Very frustrating.
I know this has been beaten to death but I'm still not sure how with an IP as extensive and vast as Star Wars, they landed on these races. All are humanoid in appearance so they got lazy I guess. Twenty bucks the first expansion brings in Wookies
Don't get me wrong I'm loving this game but can we all agree theres things that make you scratch your head sometimes?
