    I played the game for one month and have no desire to go back even if everything in game was free, even if they paid me £8.99 a month to play it.

    I don't know. I want to but I'll probably not be able to pull myself away from GW2 long enough to spend any time in SWTOR.

    This guy, who is obviously a very active gamer that clearly understands differing quality of gameplay, says otherwise.

    I say it will retain a small, maybe 200k players that love star wars and do spent way too much on aesthetic items but that is it. I do not see this a huge turn-a-round.

    Changing of the payment model has no impact on the gameplay.  My issues with the game deal with it's gameplay.  Until that is changed in a positive way (IMO), then there is no desire on my part to return.

    I vote No.

    In my opnion, its not F2P.

    It is a freemium and you have to sub monthly to get the full experience.

    Not worth the time.

    Ill play it with my buddies/close friends for free. Probably wont bother paying for warzones or any of that crap.

    This is what the analyst fails to comprehend (especially based on his part comments). You can put lipstick on a pig, but it's still a pig. All of his views are based on a mindless player base, which MMORPGers tend to be a little smarter about game choice than the facebook crowd. Obvisouly not smart enough to keep from falling for the initial SWTOR hype but I think smart enough to avoid being fooled twice (especially considering the EA ftp, pay to win method).

    The warzone weekly queue limit straight up turns me off.

    Voted yes.  It's something I can go in and goof off a bit in spare time.  If it's not entertaining I can drop with no buyers remorse.

     

    Am I likely to play it extensively and spend large amounts of money in the item shop?  No.  I doubt it.

    Yes, I was going to resubscribe at some point anyways.

    Lotro freemium left me with disgusting taste in my mouth,  don't want more so thanks but no thanks.

  • FrodoFraginsFrodoFragins Manchester, NHPosts: 2,926Member Uncommon

    I voted yes. 

     

    I bought the game on release and loved leveling my Sith Assassin.  I didn't botehr with the lvl 50 flashpoints and quickly got bored with PVP and so I level a second character to 35 or so.  I didn't subscribe until this month.  I really shouldn't have subscribed this month though because all I did was pick my new legacy and character names, due to the server xfer.  I logged in and just didn't feel like playing.

     

    I will definitely play it as F2P from time to time and level characters to see the 8 class stories.  I can't imagine spending cash on the game unless they added some really well implemented multiplayer space content.

    I played the game in Beta, and found I had no interest in something so shallow. Even if they paid me $200/month I wouldn't go back.

    I left SWTOR with my main character at lvl 47..... because of pure boredom...

    Maybe i´ll return to level those 3 lvls left to get to cap (lvl 50) and give it another try to see end game areas...

    But with GW2 coming out this month.....that won´t happen soon.....

  • EvelknievelEvelknievel Ehrenfeld, PAPosts: 2,977Member

    Definitely, it's free and it's Star Wars!

    If I get hooked again, I will subscribe, until then I will play it as intended -for free-

  • WhiteLanternWhiteLantern Nevada, MOPosts: 2,732Member

    Only stopped because I got too busy to play, so yes, I'll play again come winter when life slows down again.

    I want a mmorpg where people have gone through misery, have gone through school stuff and actually have had sex even. -sagil

  • ignore_meignore_me Apple Valley, CAPosts: 1,987Member

    No.

    I quit because of the game's design. I would have payed 180 bucks a year for many years if the game was worth playing.

    It really depends on how you define "play." I will probably fire it up every once in a while and level a character up to 50, especially if the legacy perks make it so I can skip a lot of the non-personal story quests. I might even do some warzones or an occasional flashpoint. I would equate that to how I might play a single-player game or a multiplayer console game. 

    Will I "play" it like an MMO? Absolutely not. The game world just doesn't have the character and personality to make me want to log in constantly, live as my character, or form lasting social connections with other players. I also almost certainly will not pay a cent for it since I won't care about how my character looks since it is just some meaningless avatar and I am not lazy so I don't need convenience items.

    I still have nightmares of pressing the space bar over and over again till my thumbs bleed. 

    When i hear cricketts in the bushes around my house, i have horrifling flash backs of empty uninspsiring zones.

    The very word Hutball gives me instant headaches.

     

     

    no amount of F2P will ever make me replay that horror..

    This is what's wrong with the MMO community. People think its impossible for anyone of intelligence to have a difference of opinion or perhaps like something they do not. It's not a matter of intelligence my friend. Some people actually like different things. For instance, I live in Baltimore Maryland in the US. We are known around the county for our seafood, most notably the blue crab. I don't eat seafood. Can't stand it. But I don't think there is anything wrong with the folks who do eat it. Even though I don't like it, it's ok that they do. And it's preference and has nothing to do with intelligence. I can come up with a comprehensive list of why I don't eat crabs, such as them being the ashtray of the ocean, etc.. Means nothing to those who like them. Get it?

    Well lotro wouldn't even let you do a freaking quest for free. Of course you left it with a bad taste ha! These ftp restrictions appear to be some of the best in the business. I voted yes but it would be rarely.
  • SpottyGekkoSpottyGekko RotterdamPosts: 3,845Member Uncommon

    No.

     

    I've played it for long enough already to know that it's not my kind of game. Making it F2P doesn't change that fact.
