SWToR was a money scam from the begining.

John Riccitiello. It started with him(Elevation Partners) "BioWare and Pandemic are truly among the greats of worldwide game developers. We at Elevation are proud to have been chosen by them to be their partners and to work with them in growing their businesses," said John Riccitiello, a managing director at Elevation Partners and CEO for the new holding company, BioWare/Pandemic Studios .

It ended with him as CEO of EA when EA bought the Holding Company that, consisted of Bioware/Pandemic, for $860 million.

 

Btw, Elevation Partners only invested $300 millions.

    This is old news even before it started. All MMO's are in it for your money.  Besides that fact, opinions are like A** holes, we all have one and seems people are  more pissed they believed the hype rolled out with TOR. I play a game because I like it, not because the masses tell me I should. If that makes TOR a hole in the wall, so be it.

     

    You should also know that bad press is just press in the end. It doesn't hurt anything more in the end.

    John wasn't in it for "Our money", he was in it for EA's money($560 million) worth.

    Money was involved, you cannot be denying that. And they got it. So what's your point, that they team up with a company for the money? Tell me a game that didn't do that in the last 5 to 10 years.
