I want to apologize to all of you. 
 
But I just can’t seem to stop having a great deal of fun playing SWTOR.  I’ve tried to be mainstream and hate it like the rest of you, but I have failed.  I simply love the game.
 
I just finished leveling my third character to 50 and couldn’t wait to start my 4th (Gunslinger baby!). 
 
I promise I will double my efforts being a hater and do whatever it takes to not have fun playing.  I won’t disappoint you!

    Fair enough mate, at the end of the day the only thing that really matters is your own enjoyment.

     

     I guess navigating the constant, 'This game will die!!', threads on here gets tiresome though :P

    This looks like a job for....The Riviera Kid!

    What is your trick to slogging through all of the same content and combat style that many times?  The stories aren't THAT good.

    Wow. Leveling 4 characters to 50 in that game would make me drop out of my chair and convulse uncontrolably.

  • ktanner3ktanner3 lakeland, FLPosts: 4,074Member Common

    LOL. Having fun is nothing to apologize for.  There I things I'd like to see added for the long term vialbility of the game, but I'm still enjoying it even after playing it since early launch.  No other MMO has kept me this long before without having to take a month or so break.

    Not sure why you're apologising, the only other post you've made since the game launched was another saying you were enjoying yourself image

    I honestly wish i could still have as much fun in it as you are but 7 50's down the line, all of them in at least battlemaster gear and being a pvp'er at heart i just don't have the stomach for playing the same few warzones over and over. Never really been one for raids etc so the game just doesnt have much for me. I think i only lasted this long due to the one remaining guild member who stayed (who now plays D3) and the weak hope that something would be done with Ilum, but with the contents of 1.3 being announced with no hint of anything PvP that hope is gone for the immediate future. It also doesn't help that all my toons apart from 1 are on what is now a completely dead server.

    I'll probably keep logging on every now and then till the sub runs out as i'm not playing anything else; but other than that i'll likely be gone until the space expansion gets released, depending on the direction they take.

    Why are you worrying about what others think? The best course of action is to simply avoid the internet or the usual negative nancies.

    The following will never not be true.

  • BigHatLoganBigHatLogan Bellingham, WAPosts: 688Member

    I couldn't make it past level 30 on 1 character.   So what exactly do you like about the game?   That was a very vague opening post.  I'm guessing not PVP or the side quests since those are blatently horrible.  My personal least favorite feature was the self resurrection.  Why even bother playing a game that easy...

    you arent alone in defiance of the haters OP, i still quite enjoy the game as well, nothing to apologize for, the rabid haters are just going to keep trying to get you to hate the game as much as they do, but i honestly dont care what they think, in the end its what i think, same as you

    I don't hate the game. Just wasn't something I saw as worth spending time in past getting to see the stories and dungeons on a playthrough. So...yeah...

    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.

    It's just different for everyone. I watch my secretary play Cityville ALL FUCKING DAY!! and it makes me want to open a vein. I don't know how she can just sit there and watch that damn screen... she however; loves it.

    My new thing is making Chiss Characters lol.  After I got Operative to 50 I had unlocked Chiss in Legacy.  So I then made a Chiss Vanguard.  Working on a Chiss Assassin now too.  Since Marauders and Sentinels are better now.  Was considering doing a Chiss of one of those or maybe both.  Not sure why I find the idea of Chiss being anything but Operatives/Snipers so amusing that I must create characters all my new class choices as them.  But it works image

     Well...to be fair there are certainly more than enough presenting the other sentiment.

    No reason those that love the game can't have some as well.

  • jiveturkey12jiveturkey12 You havent heard of it, FLPosts: 1,262Member

    Lol, your not going against the mainstream, because the game is made for Coregamers aka "The mainstream" and it failed to capture that audeience or any of the hardcore (What you would consider indie MMO players).

     

    So in other words, your going against no one, cause the game is terrible no matter which market your trying to favor.

    I was going to make my jedi human but then I unlocked sith pureboods with my first 50. Tempted to make the jedi sith purebloods in order to play a rebellious jedi as opposed to a goody tooshoe human. At some point I'm going there if nothing else to experience the Republic side. Will probably happen once I finish the Inquisitor and Agent storylines.

    That's going to be right after I finish Mara/Sent (which ever I finally decide on.  Leaning towards Marauder atm). Smuggler has by far one of the better Republics stories.  They are sort of like the "Bad boy in Space, with a girl at every port" type. As opposed to their mirror the Agent which is like James Bond in Space.

    @ktanner3

    I might do a Sith Pure Blood legacy after they add the Legacy perks that increase leveling speed.  A rebel sith family that have been part of the Republic for generations lol.
