    I know this is a little off topic but I didn't want to create a new thread for this. Has anyone else noticed the past few TOR vids talking about 1.2, the devs look haggard and beat down? Like they've been working around the clock and look straight up exhausted.

    And they have my sympathies. The kind of pressure they are getting can't be fun at all.

    However, keep in mind that they had five, count em, FIVE, bloody years to perfect this game. Its it possible that maybe now they are having to make up for time wasted?

    They have my sympathies too but as Tardcore, they had five years, a prebuilt engine and many many MMO case studies to look at, yet SWTOR was still as basic as a themepark game can get. 

    I will not play a game with a cash shop ever again. A dev job should be to make the game better not make me pay so it sucks less.

    I think it is safe to say SWTOR has not done as well as they hoped.  I played it to lvl 25 but each planet felt like I pressed a big reset button and started all over again and world just felt too empty.

    they're really pushing hard. three free weekends back to back and now this. they're really getting it out there.

    Why they don't wait until Patch 1.2 before doing all of this is just beyond me. They should be inviting people back to the game once they have fixed the major issues (UI customisation, constant Huttball) and not beforehand.

    I'd say good riddance to SWTOR but hey, good luck would be more in order, since they'll need it, and a lot of it.

    Anyway, my guild played it, finished it, even tho we're pvp guild we got all pve stuff in few weeks, got battlemaster even before Ilum "exploit", pvp sucked, Ilum sucked, people start quiting, goodbye SWTOR.

    And our guildmaster was in touch with the devs all the time since beta...he even took time to prepare documents with maps and charts how to help the game. Effect...0. Imbalances...listen to forum QQ and "fix" something, just to quiet ppl down. Sad sad management of what could (and by all rights should-if you look at $$ invested) be the best game up to date, instead it was a POS game with no MMO feeling at all.

    It would be nice if we could identfy whose fault it was exactly (EA or Bioware people) and more specifically, which individuals within the companies so they'd be forever named and shamed. After all, someone has to give orders and has a final say what goes. Now all crappy devs/gurus just move from one company or another citing their "sucessful" past work as reference. Bleh.

    25 invite keys. I sense a small amount of desperation. Really though, who would recommend this when half the servers are dead? You can tell just by reading SWTOR forums.

    This is what happens when you try to clone a gamestyle that is over 7 years old - even older if you want to include the EQ gear grind. 

     

    It didn't work for all the other crap clones. Did they think the Star Wars name would save them?

    Lucky it's not Heavens Gate that brought down the studio.

    I was initially going to reference Heaven's Gate, but I figured it would be even more obscure than Ishtar considering the median age of the audience. image

    Maybe Battlefield Earth has the requisite price/quality/success ratio along with being one for the kids.

    May not be my thing but if someone sends me an invite, I'll give it a go....

    Why would I want to punish 25 friends?

    1-2 I can think of, but 25!

  • Rhianni32Rhianni32 Denver, COPosts: 222Member

    They have had 3 free weekends as has been stated several times now. For my friends wanting to try it and waiting I have already told them they got their free trial chance. If they wanted to they have their chance. Giving out guest invites does nothing.

    *sigh*

     

    I have a 60-day timecard for SWTOR sitting in my pen cup on my desk. It sits there and taunts me. Continuosly. 

     

    No, I won't give it away. It's mine. It's a reminder to me not to buy 60-day timecards for new games. In a way, I feel like I should use it before SWTOR goes f2p. But I just don't feel like doing it. I just can't muster the energy to even log in.

    Sorry to say, But if someone came to me and said "Which would i get more value for money out of wow or swtor?" Im sorry i would have to direct them to WoW.

    In fact I would only direct them to the game if they were a star wars fan, as many mmorpgs offer nearly all the features of swtor and more.

    There's quite a few of us Star Wars fans who regard SWG even in its NGE incarnation as a better Star Wars mmorpg. Just saying.

    agree I think SWG was a better starwars game b/c it wsnt a WoW clone.

    Bioware has completely gone down the toilet, mainly starting with Dragon Age II. I didn't buy it (played a friend's copy) and I haven't bought  Bioware game since. All I hear is horrible things about their products these days, what is going on??? Used to be one of my favorite companies...

    Please don't ban me again for expressing my opinion moderators, you guys are ridiculous. Can't criticize anyone/anything any more without threat of being banned.

    You only have 22 posts and yet you've been banned a lot? Is this an alternate account?

    This isn't really relevant to the topic so I don't wanna talk about it here, that's just a post I put in for the moderators because they dislike my very blunt way of making comments on here.

    But yeah my roommate also played SWTOR on the weekend and has never looked back. I just told him that they're doing these events most likely because the game sucks and is failing, this new thing kinda proves that more.
