    Glad to see The Fatman is still a heavy server. If I take up the free time that will be a plus.

    You do realize a full WoW server has 800+ people in one city right?

     

    Think about this for a second. WoW supposidly has 2.5 million EU and US subs. They have over 200 US servers ALONE, and well over 30 of them are full/heavy pop.

     

    SWTOR supposidly has close to 2 million subs, has only 216 TOTAL server and can barely reach 2 full server the week that the most overhyped patch in history is released. 

     

    No one is "flocking" to the game. All patches do is cause activity to spike for a few weeks and then die down again. Bioware will never have a positive sub scriber count unless they release an expansion.

    Patch = retention

    Expansion = new subs

    Period 

    Well yeah lol nothing can compair to WoW's subs, WoW had 7+ years, but you have to agree 500 on a Fleet is pretty impresive for a game that just came out, remember WOW didn't break 1 million subs till almost a year in (8mths or so)

    I agree, no matter what proof I show they will find a way to twist it, I myself am waiting to play GW2 but in no way am I leaving Swtor, I will be playing both games as many of us will.

    People need to understand that if Swtor fails ALL other MMO from here on out will fail and the reason future MMO dev. will be scared to make a high priced MMO because they think it will fail, if Swtor fails World of Warcraft will be the ONLY MMO on the market and all other MMO past present or future will just become low budget money grabs,

    So for the sake of ALL MMO's to come people better pray for Swtor not to fail.

    Frankly, if developers realize that a big budget and a beloved IP aren't enough to save a game from stale mechanics and a poor endgame, that would be a good thing for the industry. If TOR is the last big WoW clone, it will be because it failed (or, really, didn't do as well as expected), and that's a good thing. It's failure won't "kill" anything that deserves to live.

    You are still focusing on one server. It would be more impressive if half of the servers had same amount of population. But that is not the case. One heavy server doesn't mean game is doing well just how one light server doesn't mean game is dying.

    Both sides are exaggerating to make their point.

    500 people ISN'T REALLY that impressive... Especially when Bioware designed the game in such a way to basically herd everyone into the same tiny area.

     

    And when SWTOR first came out they had A LOT more activity. You think 500+ on fleet in one server is good? When SWTOR first came out, that was the case for AT LEAST 30+ severs.

     

    Now it's down to 2. Was down to 1 before 1.2.

     

    And don't start with WoW taking a year to get 1 million subs. The MMO market was VASTLY different when WoW entered. SWTOR wouldn't have broken 500k sales if WoW didn't break the new ground first. 

     

    Hell without WoW, EA would have seen SWTOR has too risky a venture to create. Just look how safe they played it, copying everything from WoW, you think EA would risk breaking new ground in the MMO market? Please

    Wrong, if Swtor fails the ONLY MMO will be WoW that people will trust, and MMO Dev. will be to scared to take a chance on spending big money to create a MMO because they think if Swtor failed no other MMO can compete with the GIANT called WoW so they will only make small budget MMO (FTP) or just money grabs.

    Swtor needs to not fail to prove to the other MMO's that with time and money you can compete in the big leages.

    Just stating a fact

    I am playing SWTOR right now because i got a week free. Still seems like the same boring bland game i played for 2 weeks at launch. BW has not inticed me to come back.

    Playing: PO, EVE
    Waiting for: WoD
    Favourite MMOs: VG, EVE, FE and DDO
    Any person who expresses rage and loathing for an MMO is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.

    They need to merge, I have been scraming at Swtor to merge, Swtor had to many servers at launch, if Swtor would merger 25% of the servers they would all be heavy in Pop, this will be better for everyone and with a full list of heavy servers players will enjoy the game more in return more players will join.

    SWTOR failing would show companies that WoWclones don't cut it anymore.

    If SWTOR succeeds, we'll enter another age of "Hey guys! Here's WoW plus <insert IP>. SWTOR did it, so can we!"

    Hey smart guy what is the server cap for each server? You dont know? I know you dont know, you are doing what every other kid does, pull facts out of your butt, most servers are standard, some are full some are heavy at certain times.  You seem to have a some issue with a positive thread, I bet I know? GW2 ! Its the game to end all other games.....one GAME to rule them all. 

    Also 500 is in ONE zone....not counting the other 10 planets, not counting who are in different instance on that same server.  You really have no idea.  Get a clue on something before you engage your brain to keyboard.

    Yes i did and like i said i am not ignoring the population boost by 30 free days. I would wait till free times run out to make a proper guess.

    I've seen people say that "standard" mean 35 people on fleet.

     

    I've also seen people say that "standard" mean 150 people on fleet.

    Making standard a broad server term is the best business decision Bioware has made so far, because clearly, them poaring 200 million into WoW plus lightsabers is turning out to be a disaster.

    How do you figure?

    WoW is in no way going to crash, if anything WOW proves that most people want WoW-clones, face it there is NO MONEY IN SANDBOX MMO'S, all MMO's that want to stay in the game and make money will have to follow WoW's lead, WoW has a proven track record.

    If Swtor fails this will only pigeon hole the MMO market to WoW and WoW only, all other MMO's will be looked at with with scepticism by the masses as (not a risk worth taking) so they will just stay with WoW or nothing at all.

    Rift

    Warhammer

    Vanguard

    Age of Conan

    All dead or dying.

     

    Now lets look at the sandbox games like EvE online. All growning or maintaining a healthy population.

    The market is over saturated with cookie cutter MMOs. 

     

    Coke and pepsi both taste the same but no one cares because there are only 2. If there were 500 different variations of Coke and Pepsi, people would lose interest

    Yes, and those MMO's you just listed are doing better then any other sandbox MMO besides EvE, Not sure but I thought Vanguard was more of a Sandboxy game?

    Rift made 100 million for Trion last year in profit. I hardly call that dying. With exception of Vanguard and Warhammer Rift and AOC both are doing very well.

    So yes there is still lots of money in properly done WOW clones.

    Congradulations for repeating what I just said?

     

    I said I've seen people say that standard can mean 150 on fleet.

    A while ago someone did a head count on all the servers. The highest pop was Fatman at full with a population of 3000.

    3000 for a full server REALLY isn't that impressive

    I don't really see how this thread is any different from the threads saying that "when I log in my server is a ghosttown" that the fans seem to hate.  Is this just a "neener neener" topic?
