I finally did it, even though when i subscribed I used a gift card for 6 months because i wanted to get rid of the card and figured i'd be around a few months.. I finally did it.. I deleted the game from the hard drive.. And technically cancelled my subscription.
I played a Bounty Hunter to 50, a trooper to 25, a few other characters to teens/early 20's.. I am the type who wants to play the game, not really in it to be part of a movie. If I want to get into a movie and story line, I will go to the movies or watch a dvd/tv whatever. Ya know what I mean? I don't understand where online gaming became interactive story day. Yes its nice to have background, lore, etc etc, but I am here to be playing a game. Is it possible I can actually play the game with something interesting, challenging, risky, adventurous by my hand? So basically im just saying, I dunno how you guys justify this PvE quest storyline a game, to me its a $150 movie ticket with a $15/m rental tag...And the ending just never happens.. You wouldnt rent The Star Wars DVD for that kind of money, so not sure how you justify this as valid entertainment for your buck. Why not just get out of your house and go to a Star Wars bar and be part of the script in the audience? You at least can get hammered at the same time for the same dinero!!
Okay, anyhow, that doesnt mean im a pvp player entirely either, but thats where this game took me... The questing segragated any players from getting together, each player soloing a online game, and seriously i think after Black Talon, or Esseles, i never really did another flashpoint with my guild of 50 some odd players.. TBH, i found the whole flashpoint thing to be a oddity.. I just never felt compelled to do it, didnt see a reason, other than to get this tokens and crafting crap that seriously noone needs. My guildmates were also doing their own thing so grouping was never there, or worse yet the 4 player groups made it so we all couldnt play... So everyone pugged it as they needed too..
So quickly the game was anti-social.. We logged in and chatted throughout the night, and as nights went by, the interest of the guild dissapated as everytjhing to learn was done over just a couple days.. There was no reason to be in a guild... There is no support for a guild, and no game mechanics outside of storyline questing whatsoever. We tried crafting for one another, an it was a waste of time as most crafting professions were useless gear wise, and the mods etc, were easily obtainable thru basic questing scenarios..
The game also turned out to be static linear boredom.. There was no adventure feeling, seriously i didnt feel attached to the storyline.. i was there a part of it.. they were trying to make me feel like i am somebody... but in the end, all i did was say. "Im in for the credits.". Quite frankly im sick of that after one character.. The decisions, are all the same, and responses not even what i expected or the just of my desired attitude. Didnt matter, no choice could i go wrong.. They would just give a different reply and move on, or a few different outcomes that didnt mean nothing in the future as I expected..
Quite frankly most of the storyline was so rushed none of it made any sense or developed my character, i had no sense of adventuring, no sense of a community no sense of nothing.. it was just there. I quickly found myself spacebaring thru it just to get the levels quicker...
So i trailed into PvP, at least PvP is a bit challenging while you are learning the game... I for one am great a games, and very coordinated, and then after a few build wipes, found my DPS build and owned the warzones.. It was fun being top damage every round thru the first 50 levels, but then end game came. I went thru the whole expertise wiping out the 45's and below, i went thru the brackets, and i went thru the getting champion gear crap.. at the end, i am battlemaster valor 60 with no battlemaster gear, and no desire to get it.. It means nothing... the game has no appeal or end of the day reason, why am i wasting my time here...Basically every match was the same fight over and over, nothing unique, no feeling of wins or losses, a lot of stupid people doing things to piss you off, and no way to grow a community.. I never seen such a game where you didnt even find another player to play with because you had same interests.. everyone was on their own and that was that.
As for my character, it was just stale. After doing this and that, realizing nothing is unique about the game. Nothing is awarded for anything.. nothing can be shown as an accomplishment, and the stuff that was there, was not even at a subpar level, but quite frankly comical in design skills. As for materials, I dont get no weapon different than anyone else, i dont get no stats, i dont get anything but a reoccurring bill for doing the same thing over and over... And thats when it struck me... as much as i desire to be a part of a community and mmorpg game, and having fun... I realized this game has NO FUN FACTOR to it whatsoever... I re-rolled in disbelief...i trolled the swtor and then got a 2nd wind... but once again.. i just cant find myself hitting the login button, the developers have shown no interest into doing anything but providing the game as a interactive story and the pvp battlezones, are frankly just patheticly designed, and they dont care about em, nor ever will..... I want to say I am sadly dissappointed in leaving, but to be honest, it was 48 hours ago i left, and I have been A LOT HAPPIERr since... I have a lot of friends playing the game, the guild is a 7 year old SWG guild, and the guild i am in has dwindled down from 50 to 5 players int he past weeks... I am starting to understand why. I dont want to lose those relationships, but to be honest, i don't miss the game, and if anyone out there is hanging on... I say pull the plug, you are better off in the long wrong... Hopes and desires are great, but this development team of Bioware has shown no interest in really improving this game... and i bet F2P is already in design, as they are not fixing anything else as far as i can tell,.... in beta there was tons more content that was pulled, get ready to pay for it, is what i am forseeing! This game is surprisingly a complete dud with no future, after taking some time and let it sink in on how they can fix it.. they can't, they can only add to story for the story peeps, and thats not enough for me.
I am not sad at my decision, and if you are feeling like i do... like nothing is happening.. i suggest pull the plug
