The "I told you" thread

Ok

I waited a long time for this thread even though I was pretty sure it'd come sooner or later (though even I expected to write this later!)

But as I've been reading through forums I stumbled on this thread that would light some hope in TOR players,and I saw that even the more stubborn fanboys have turned its back on their beloved Tortanic

So here it comes guys!

I TOLD YOU! :D

You should have listened, you should look at the wrongs of the game, see how much it is duplicating WoW and how arrogant and closeminded Bioware has become with their "fourth pillar" vision

Lot of us told you to take a step back and look and the bigger picture - well you didnt and here we are, 5 months after the launch and the game offers month of free time to keep the players in, most of you are disgusted with the pvp, lack of endgame and overall poorness of the game considering the fact that it's the most expensive AAA MMO with sub fees and not a single player CO-OP

..somehow, I feel good about how right I and others were and I'm glad Byol'ware is hitting the rock bottom with the fans, maybe they'll rethink their attitude next time

oh and here are some tagged threads before the game was launched, I hope you enjoy the bold claims and defendings you made there ;)

SWTOR has done it!

Crystal Ball claims

    You're late.

    I started saying: 'Uh-oh, this game is no good' when they started releasing images that showed obviously closed-off, linear, rat-run worlds and all the fanbois were saying: 'No! It's open! It takes two hours to drive across just one zone!'.

    And that was in 2009.

    This is just bad. This needs to be locked since it will just cause flame wars. The game is doing just fine, it just needs tweaking.

     

    And...you might want to "re-edit" for spelling and grammar...just sayin'

    You are absolutely correct in some ways, but in spite of its brokeness I had fun for the four months I played, I dind't renew my account after my free month and 3 months pre purchase expired.(I cacelled before they gave away the free month even though i was still playing) With that said I actually enjoyed it somewhat prior to the 1.2 which made an average game into a bad game imho. I don't feel cheated, it kept me entertained for what, four months? Counting sub fees that's 100 dollars or 25 a month I paid for a game I played for hours and hours. By way of comparison I spend twice my total cost in a single month at the pub or going to movies etc. 

     

    Money well spent but time to move on.

    Lol I remember doing exactly the same thing when they opened SWTOR forums...I saw the screens and was like...Oh god..no they didnt...After that the game became exactly what I thought and expected to be from the very first screenshot...sadly

    And yes, this thread is not nice, but whatever, the fans werent as well when agresivelly defending the game

    It needs a hell of a lot more than some "tweaking", but I do agree this thread is pointless and should be locked. Plenty of other threads out there to make this point without the need to create its own.

    1. For god's sake mmo gamers, enough with the analogies. They're unnecessary and your comparisons are terrible, dissimilar, and illogical.

    2. To posters feeling the need to state how f2p really isn't f2p: Players understand the concept. You aren't privy to some secret the rest are missing. You're embarrassing yourself.

    3. Yes, Cpt. Obvious, we're not industry experts. Now run along and let the big people use the forums for their purpose.

    What exactly did you tell "them".  I bought the game, played it for a few months, and unsubbed... I've done that with every MMORPG for the past 10+ years... 

     

    I still think SWTOR is a good game.. so not sure what the deal is.

     I am still subbed but agree. SWTOR is good and it is fun. Will it last me years, nope but neither will most games..MMOs or otherwise.

    You did not manage to tell me so. I knew exactly what I was getting and me and my friends are still enjoying the game for what it is.

    And I told folks months ago that threads like these are a waste of pixels, no matter what game it refers to.

    The evidence is now overwhelming. 

    Told you so.

    Boo to this thread...what rubbish

  • GoldenArrowGoldenArrow TurkuPosts: 1,187Member Uncommon

    No-one could've foreseen what would happend with SWTOR.

    The game itself from 1-49 was awesome. Best levelling experience ever in a mmorpg.

    The endgame was untested/broken/badly designed.

     

    IF Swtor had a working endgame it would've succeeded. But it didn't.

    This is something you couldn't foresee, the game wasn't bad, the endgame was.

    Your problem is thinking that any MMO in development is going to be "praised by all" and "played years after launch" etc etc...

    I started playing MMOs with Everquest. I played for 5 years. Loved it, but eventually moved on. NOT ONE MMO SINCE THEN has met my expectations. I've long since accepted that no MMO will ever be "Everquest" for me, so I just play them for what they are.

    You think any future MMO will not go through this same cycle of hype-hype-hype-release-even out? All of them will. Guild Wars 2, TERA, Archeage, *ALL MMOs* will go through exactly the same cycle as SWTOR has gone through.

    The MMO genre has peaked. Period.
