Now all i can say to this is: HAHAHAHAHA!!
"not great gameplay" ... i guess you should get some more intel about bioware and their history of games.. which are by far the greatest PC RPG's to date!
They don't know. They just like playing follow the leader in these forums. If someone says something, without any facts they just go along with them without knowing anything.
Happens alot to those who play WoW.

enlighten me on how thats any different then sw tor end game from what ive heard.your basically standing on what is the equivilent of orgrimmar doing the same things only theres no queues you just shout in some chat.maybe i missed some cool and exciting things to do
SwTOR is not anywhere the level of pub fest WoW is, not even close. Open world PvP actually exists in SWTOR (On Ilum). Also WoW fanbase is just beyond repair. It is by far the worst community in any MMO so that really kills it for me. I can't imagine how anyone would pick WoW over SWTOR unless you are completely lost.
Im really interested what happend betweens the OP pre/during launch
"I already have cancelled my preorder"
"I just don't see myself paying $15 dollars a month for this type of linear game!
"Could you really see yourself playing this game for years to come???"
"I just can't see myself paying 15 dollars a month for a solo game with chat functions!"
"Count me as a cancel. I guess they must have included me because I registered the pre-order but after trying out the free beta weekened I cancelled immediately"
"not worth it at all in my Opinion. It's not worthy of a monthly Subscription."
"the game is pure garbage"
"I totally bought and subbed to this game and quit now and now totally have to tell you... again"
I mean reading just the first page of your own posthistory or just remembering back 2 months could have saved you a lot of money buying a game you dont even like.
See, as much as I dislike the themepark model, if I'm going to play a linear MMO that's similar to WoW, it's really just a matter of choosing my skin. Personally, I like sci-fi way more than fantasy, so I'd probably go with the skin that gives me space, and allows me to pew pew laser guns. If you enjoy high fantasy, I can see how you might have some difficulty picking between the Rift skin or the WoW skin.

While playing Swtor I was like "this is such crap, wow does it so much better." It made me miss wow, but I didn't go back...MMO's are almost dead for me, don't even want to try Tera anymore.

I'm hanging on to SWTOR because I bought the CE and said, "This is going to be my game!" .... BUT, I have to admit I am disappointed so far and already hear WoW calling me back. Damned if EA didn't add neon swords to Ultima Online in the first place or I'd still be there!!!
Imo BW screwed up the single player part too -
can't pick your companions and have the light/dark choices affect who stays and goes.
No variety in starships (even an option of 2 like the advanced class, like you get either a "piece of junk" or "luxury yacht").
Voice overs - really disappointing for such a big selling point - constantly get people saying their voice doesn't fit the character they created. I'd rather read text than hear my jedi knight talk again... thankfully i also have a female agent who balances this out a bit.
Bottom line for me is an MMO is supposed to let you create your character and find your adventure. In this game BW essentially creates everything about your character except the race, weight, and skin tone.
*edit - I don't mean to be so negative... there are a lot of good things about SWTOR and I'm hoping to stay, but I would like to see some things get worked on now that I've been in it a few months...
Personally, I don't think there is a game out there bad enough that it could drive me back to WoW. I'm one of those rare few that find WoW to be a bad game. Everything from art style, to 3rd grade quest reading level, to crafting, and beyond. Don't even get me started on all the gold farming and level 60's feeling so powerful when they pawn a level 20 in PvP. I put a few months into WoW figuring it would grow on me and the only thing that grew was my hate for the game. So while SWTOR might be considered a WoW clone, at least a=it can do something that WoW never did . . . it can get me interested in the game.
