        It just feels like a different experience to me. Combat is tighter, there have been lots of tweaks. PvP is pretty balanced, there aren't a ton of CC abilities anymore. Space combat has recieved a lot of love in customizability and a PvP element. I play on a PvE server though so I'm unsure about world PvP but the battlegrounds are always fun.

     

    The skill tree's make more sense.

    The graphics got an update and everything looks even better.

     

    I just think for some reason the game has gotten a bad rap and I can't figure out why. It seems great at what it does. Where does it fall flat? The combat is the best that MMO's have to offer (unless you don't like the trinity system anymore). It looks flashy and exciting. The storylines are the best MMO's have to offer. The flashpoint dungeons are actually interesting and also the best dungeons MMO's have to offer. 

    Where exactly doesn't it hold up to this invisible standard of other MMOs? And what MMO does it better? Because I'd like to play that game then.

     

    I like how in the story lines, when you go into a building to speak with a important NPC, and say he's your general black guy, every single one of his underlings is a exact copy of a different little blackguy, no variation just clones. You can see how much thought and creativity they put into there "story lines".

     

    3 cheers for false lore, this game just as bad as TES is going to be.

         So I played this game in beta and I really liked it. I didn't get extremely far and left it a little while afterwards as I got kind of bored.

    I recently went back to give it another go and the servers are all populated extremely well. Sith and republic sides are actually pretty even. Ship combat has improved and the game looks phenomenal. I thought GW2 would be my game of choice but it failed to capture me.

         I found myself coming back to SWTOR and am extremely happy with my purchase. I recommend everyone let go of what they think to be true and give it another go.

         Also all of the reports about doom and gloom are unfounded. An article was just released that there are still 1.3 million players playing the game. they only suffered a 400k loss (http://www.ign.com/articles/2012/05/07/swtor-subscriber-base-shrinks) from 1.7 to 1.3 million. Which makes it the second largest sub game out currently (to WoW of course).

         An expansion is also planned to be released shortly.

         See you guys in game!

     

    Player base has nothing to do with state of the game, reason mmorpgs have been a in rut for so many years is because a majority of the " player base " is noobs who enjoy this sort of lame mmo.

    Definitely a friendly strategy you've got there. Any game you're not playing and it's lame then? And anyone who's playing them are noobs?.....right okaaay.

    No, I am saying that the reason companies keep producing crap themepark games is that most consumers enjoy them, plain and simple.

    The article was just released?

    1.3 million subs?

    Come on OP, you can't post a thread like this on a site like this.

    In fact, the subs were so low, the EA CEO hang up on the investors call when he was challenged on his "SWTOR has less than 1 million subs but over 500K." Everybody on this site knows that SWTOR needed 500K subs to stay afloat. They didn't and went F2P. They closed over 100 servers. And on and on...

    THAT is what happened since the article was published.

     

    it went F2P because they thought it was just a better business model, not because they felt they had to. Also there was a post above that noted it has having more than 500,000 which is more than enough for me. It has an expansion coming out for gods sake. Dying games do not release expansions. It has a small but nice population. Its not a troll thread I just don't see the game dying like others seem to claim. It looks fine and healthy to me. 

    Riiiiight. You're not fooling anyone. If it was a better business model, then why is WoW sub based?

    So now the game has over 500K subs? You were just defending that it had 1.3M. Make up your mind. If they have that number still, then why say we have over 500K? Everyone knows that they are lying. And they have never brought up numbers again since they hang up on the investors call.

    Tell me, can you list all the official features of this "expansion"? (DLC patch)

    1 planet (size unknown)

    5 levels (you hit 50 on Voss, which is the third to last planet for vanilla).

    1 or 2 NPCs will ask if you want to do LGBT things together on Makeb.

    ...You finish the rest, because that's all I've seen.

    Censorship is intended to create an illusion that one side of the debate is correct and unopposed. Silence is not consent.

    Don't take what many are saying in this thread to heart. Most of it stems from the fact that the OP's post comes off as a shill and the fact that the information that "Just came out" was from a good bit back and is no longer even remotely relevant. 

    Thr OP ignoring those pointing this out and challenging any newer information with the same link full of out dated information tends to get under other peoples skins.
