    I'm surprised you used the and "beyond" title. It's just gives the same few tidbits of info on 1.3 and nothing about beyond other than 2 concept art pictures.

    Coooooool!

  • Creslin321Creslin321 Baltimore, MDPosts: 5,359Member

    Soooooo....it looks like their two "flagship" features for this update (dungeon finder and character transfer) are both things that just about all other themepark MMORPGs have had for a long time now.

    Sounds about right.

    Are you team Azeroth, team Tyria, or team Jacob?

  • FrodoFraginsFrodoFragins Manchester, NHPosts: 2,931Member Uncommon

    I read these in hopes of hearing them announce either:

     

    1) Switch to a B2P or F2P model OR

    2) big plans for massive coop space missions with flagships and such

    When you try and make asses out of us it just makes you look bad =D

     

    Seriously though, if it our fault that we are pissed at swtor? The answer is HELL NO! The first Star wars game to come out (SWG) kept my attention from launch till NGE. I dont think this game held me for even two months meaning there is a huge disturbance in the force.

    why did they even make a video for this...?

  • DeeterDeeter SO. SF, CAPosts: 135Member

    Holy christ why is Bioware spotlighting two basic features in tons of mmos nowadays as like these revolutionary new and amazing CONTENT UPDATES?

    Why do they keep doing this like with UI SCALING WOW THIS IS A GREAT CONTENT UPDATE HERE'S A TEN MINUTE VIDEO HIGHLIGHTING HOW EPIC THIS CONTENT IS

    Do they have any idea how stupid they're making themselves look and how they're driving this game into the ground? Jesus christ this game

    Yea, this is all stuff that should have been in from day one, but I understand why they try to get the word out.

    One of the big reasons for people leaving is the collapse of server populations and the lack of people to do content with. Assuming the LFG works, people might come back as they can now finally get the MM part of TOR again.

    Same thing for char transfers. Unsubbed folks may have completely tuned out TOR and might have missed this.

    Does BW deserve huge kudos for this? No. Should they try to get the word out? Absolutely.

    And most people who are tuned into MMORPGs will have the same reaction you had anyway - "they are adding this only now??"

    So far i love this game, at least more than TSW. I decided to support this game uncondicionally cause it´s got potencial and an incredible IP.  I know it's far from bein' a dream game then that´s one part of what mmo games are all about, they evolve, change, grow, and most important, build strong communities, takes time but SWtor will obtain the polish it deserves.  Many ppl have positive opinions about this game too, but post no comments perhaps because they're havin a blast ingame.

    Poor Ohlen, he looks like he is about to cry. He can't fake his lack of enthusiasm. It must not be fun to be Bioware austin. He looks old, tired and worn out.

     

    I bet their development team consists of great people. Who really knows. In Hollywood it is often the case that the producer overrules the director and scriptwriter and makes his or her own changes to the film. Maybe there is some outside influence going on here as well.

     

     

    Are people really asking for this Legacy stuff? They seem dead set on this path that they are on right now. I really wish them the best.

    fekk. i want new alien races to play as....

     

  • McGamerMcGamer Fairfield Bay, ARPosts: 1,012Member

    SWTOR wouldn't need character transfer or a better LFG tool if the game itself was better. 

    But alas, SWTOR still bites and has nothing to do with Star Wars other than the label on the box.

    I know. I would be ashamed of an update video like this from such high cost AAA MMO.

    the whole bioware situation in the past two years has been pretty depressing overall

    Because they are arrogant, egotistical and like the sound of their own voices

    I just like to point out that most games "that have these features" of this patch did not have them form the start either... In fact "dungeon finder" is a fairly new concept and most companies are not cynical enough to include a character transfer service from the start (though i am sure it will become more and more common)

     

    Just saying... objectivity and all that ...

    I fully agree... First thing that hit me when watching this vid was how worn and tired he was..

    It's a pity.. Especially since I actually play SW:TOR.. But I think you're right, I think they have little say right now and that someone else is calling the shots.. I bet the layoffs don't help either. The people going are, after all, co-workers and perhaps even friends. Can't feel good...

    I really think all of this should've been in at launch though, and had it been, they might've actually made it. As it is now, though I like playing the game as a co-op RPG more than  anything else, I think TOR is bleeding out fast.

    Too bad all they can apply is some linen cloth instead of a trauma kit.....
