So I've been lurking these forums for awhile and I must say I've never seen so much hatred for a game in my life. Most of the reasons for the hate are either waayyyyyyyy over exaggerated, or just flat out lies. The constant nit-picking and blind hate is enough to make a person sick. 95% of the people playing TOR absolutely love it, as it is a great and fun game.
One of the lies perpetrated by the hate community is that while TOR receives very high review scores from the critics, the user reviews are extremely low. This is simply not true, with the exception being metacritic. It is well known that an army of WoWers bent on seeing TOR fail bombarded metacritic with 1 star reviews, even though most of them had never even played the game.
Let's take a look at some user scores left by people who actually purchased and played TOR:
Gamestop - 8.2 and 9.4
Best Buy - 4.1 / 5
Amazon - 4 1/2 stars out of 5
Newegg - 4 / 5
The list goes on and on....
Also, please not that the majority of low scores left on the above sites are by people who didn't realize there was a subscription involved and are angry at their own ignorance. While they purchaed the game, they never actually did play it. Imagine how much higher the scores would be without the reviews left by those people.
So there you have it, another hate community lie exposed.
