    As much as the game looks awesome don't buy it and don't give away all your gold in wow thinking you will never go back.

    If I could travel back in time, I would have saved myself from wasting 300 bucks on two CE boxes! /Facepalm

    What a waste of money that was! /cry

    Off-topic, but when did the discontent for SWTOR begin exactly?

    I would have told myself to save the £50, and stick with Rift.

    Don't sub. It will be F2P within a year.

    It's a mediocre game that will be easily forgotten.

    I know you're desperate for something to play as theres Been nothing out for awhile, but for gods sake don't do it man, its EA.

    One of the few mmos where I wasted my money.

    Don't give up on it so quickly, because as far as themeparks go, it's one of the more entertaining ones.

    Played: AA, AC1, AC2, Aion, AO, AoC, CO, CoX, DAoC, DCUO, DN, EVE, EQ1, EQ2,
    ESO, FE, FFXI, FFXIV, FF, GW1, GW2, Istaria, L2, LoTRO, MO, MxO, NW, Rift, RoE,
    Ryzom, SB, SWG, SWTOR, TERA, TSW, WAR, WoW, WURM...

    I'd tell myself not to buy it, like every other MMO I have bought this year I have got as many hours out of them as a normal single player game before ditching them. I have a problem.

    That it's a fine game worth playing for a few months but nothing amazing, which is pretty much what I was expecting pre-beta.

    As awesome as it looks, pass on it.

    You will stop playing before you reach the 30´s .

    This... the only MMO I have regretted buying was STO.

    That the obvious signs of Bioware not knowing squat about managing a MMO is not an illusion.

    Trust your feelings and save your money, even if you can afford it.  Space Combat relegated to a mini-game really does mean what it signals, and that Bioware really has made one giant g-dd-m mistake out of a Star Wars game!

    At the very least, don't bother with the Collector's Edition, it's not worth it.

    Avatars are people too

    To make sure I level an additional alt at the same time to take advantage of the initially large playerbase.

    Play all the flashpoints you can at launch because the chance of getting a group for them after the population dies down will be very slim.

    Don't get the CE...it will go F2P and EA will play you for a fool.

    This is not your new MMORPG home.

    I remember late spring-early summer last year we told Bioware that we did NOT want a WoW clone and when they patched the game in August, we got a WoW clone. That's when I should've known what was coming, actually I only logged in twice after August, I lost interest in beta testing the game. I didn't pre-order the game, but I did buy the game at midnight release, there was a lineup outside Gamestop before 12am.

    I would tell myself not to even bother with beta for the year I was in it. They didn't listen to any of the concerns and feedback we gave them in beta, those concerns/feedback were the problems people had with the game at release.

    EA/Bioware dearly paid for it just like we knew they would when the game released and people complained about the very same things we pointed out in beta and were ignored.

    Buy it, install it, play it until you tire of it, and then play something else.

    It's not going to be eternal entertainment for fifty bucks, but then nothing ever has or will be.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    I wouldn't change anything actually.

    I had a great time (for the most part) for the first 6-8 weeks. Then I unsubscribed.

    I guess getting two months of enjoyment out of a 75$ investment isn't too shabby in my eyes.

    Definitely was not worth a continued subscription to me, but after next week maybe I'll check back in from time to time.
