Well today I finally had enough. Between their terrible optimization of the game, piss poor hero engine, poor mmo design choices, lvl 50 uber RNG pvp gear grind I've had enough.
I watched the show The Republic for a consistent 7-8 months before the game launched. I was highly looking forward to the game.
I've played it for a month now and no longer have any desire to play the game.
Anyone playing the game atm is essentially paying to beta test the game.
I understand it's a brand new mmo, but after your initial impressions of the first 20-30 levels you start to see and realize how bug ridden and poorly optimized this game is. I can honestly say that having played WoW for over a year, Vanguard, CoH/V, Champions Online, AoC, Warhammer etc that this game fails on many levels.
The best part of the game is your class quest line as you level up. I fully expected this, but when you look past this you realize how SUBPAR every other part of the game is.
I could literally write a 25,000 word essay on the problems this game has, but I'm not going to waste that amount of time of the people bothering to read this.
My best advice to anyone reading this that may be interested in SWTOR is that if you are gonna buy the game expect to be fairly entertained for maybe a month while you level your character from 1-50 and expect most of that enjoyment to come from your "main" class quest storyline. Beyond that don't expect much more out of the game.
I think Bioware had the right idea infusing more engaging story into an mmo, but that they have ultimately failed on too many fronts for this game to have serious long term subscriber retention.
So that's that.
Ya, I know, ya told me so.
