    SWTOR needs way too much work to ever draw me back to it.

    I was never so excited to play a new game and SWTOR completely let me down. I will never again get that fired up for a new game.

    This.

    The problem with SWTOR is its the same ol same ol. It's not even *worth* the time to play. I've played "TOR" a thousand times before TOR was actually released, its called "WoW" and all its clones it spawned. For someone like me, who has a full time job and schooling, I don't have time to play a game that I've already played before, I wanted something new and TOR didn't deliver in the slighest bit. Maybe its my age (28) but it just seems the glory years for MMO's are over, I can't get into them anymore, I used to be attached to characters in MMO's (SWG, CoH, WoW, etc) but now its like I just don't care, modernized MMO's have taken the "character" out of your character, if that makes any sense.

    Well, thats my small and meaningless rant for the day. I think the only reason I even check these forums is because SWTOR really was the last hope for me, I remember being pumped for this game, thinking it was gonna be the dream MMO that I was always waiting for... got 2 months in and I facepalmed, this game was a disaster. Oh well, maybe something might rekindle my spirts to play again, but F2P isn't it.

    I enjoy undercutting people in the market place - it's the only PvP a crafter gets.

    I would like to come back. I don't feel that the f2p option will draw me back because i already played the stories.

     

    I will wait on ship/hanger/housing features

    the space combat upgrade

    and pvp to be somewhat playable and some instance of open world pvp re-instated.

    I do not care for flashpoints, or gear grinds or any of that. I want to have a hangar full of ships, to role play, and to "live" in a galaxy far far away. When they give me that feeling i'll be back.

    F2P is nice but I left becouse I beat the game ( never thought I would say that in a MMo but I did). 

    The only way i will come back is if they put Space Combat in the game. Not the Star Fox crap that is there now.

    I guess im just waiting for SWG 2 to be made.

    I'll be back to level a char with a friend. Gonna play it like a coop singleplayer game and ignore all flawed MMO-aspects of it. Not gonna spend a dime in their shop.

    Same, I have a few classes / storylines left which I wanna play through. One of them (consular) I'll play with a buddy as a co-op just like altair4. (buddy skipped the knight when subbed, I guess the two will be a great duo)

    And when all 8 storylines are done, I plan to uninstall and never look back :)

    Playing on the side. Its not the freshes thing but the stories were entertaining (personal, regular 'quests' could be dule) its not as good as a single player game might have it but its a lot better then other games focusing on that type of story (Guildwars 2, TSW isn't bad but its a lot different focus then the 'personal' story the other two have)

    Agreed, but there wasn't any SW rpg lately on the single player side, so we need to take every chance we got to play one.

    I also forget from previous post, if EA won't pull the plug until I'm done with the stories, maybe I'll stay a bit further and finish capturing my light-sided inquisitor story vid. Yep, I know it sounds lame... :)

    The severe limitation in the # of warzones makes it not that great.  Then again, since that's about all a lot of people do anyways, if they made that free they would probably lose money. Maybe if they offered unlimited WZ option for like $1 a week, I'd be back, despite them nerfing my sorc once again.  No interest in paying $15 a month for this game however.

    Otherwise, I might go back and do a few of the class quests just to see what they are about. Lame but I guess it's an option.

    So they should let you play 100% free and not make any money?

    no idea how you got that impression from my post. just saying me personally i cant stand the F2P model, i would rather pay the sub if i am going to come back,not saying they shouldn't offer it and i even eluded to that in my post which you didn't seem to catch.

    there it is again so you don't miss it this time.

    I think Baphamet means he'd rather sub if he plays at all rather than deal with limitations of the freemium system. I'm the same way, if I'm interested in a game I'll try the free option only enough to see if it's worth a sub. I can't devote time to a game as a freemium player.

    exactly,i have done that before too, as a trial basically.

    This game and games like it should be B2P.  It's an easy middle ground between subs and F2P and they wouldn't have had half the bad press they currently have due to player retention.  Obviously spending a few hundred million wasn't very wise.
  • baphametbaphamet omaha, NEPosts: 2,836Member Uncommon

    to me the game lacks in pvp and end game, leveling up and flash points is pretty good and fun.

    just not a game that has "legs" to let people enjoy it for years.

    Taking an extended break from all things MMO for awhile, just tired of all of them at the moment. SWTOR wore thin for me in less than 6 months and the F2P sounds like crap so not coming back anytime soon.
  • TeknoBugTeknoBug Calgary, ABPosts: 2,156Member

    HEH not me, after reading up on the updated F2P restrictions... come on, 1 quickbar?

    Honestly, I wouldn't come back if they paid me. Unless, you know... It was like a lot of money.
