I played this game for about 3 months at launch. Leveling up was fantastic imo. Endgame was a snooze and broke. This resulted in the rerolling of multiple alts, which i rarely do in games, just for the storyline...as well as some planets that i absolutely loved but felt i spent too little time on.
I would come back to this game if they had a founders status for those of us who paid for the box and possible CE be it digital or box.
One of the reasons why i shun the game currently?
Well i have to delete beloved characters in order to start a new character and get reaquainted to the game...which i always do when returning to a game, i cannot return to a game and hop on an endgame character.
Now i know, just make a new account its free...but i lose my account mounts, i still have a nerfed hotbar, and i dont have access to anything account wide, such as gear on alts and money ect.
I would really consider returning, possibly subbing. I just feel...i dunno, slapped in the face kind of. I paid full box and for 2 months after my first free month...close to $100 for the game. Im treated as a freeloader that needs to be prodded in game at every step to donate chump change for access to the whole game...and honestly i dont want access to the whole game...i just want to be allowed to roll a new character, have access to normal hotbars, and decide if this is a game i would like to pay for again.
Does anyone else feel its wrong to do this kind of stuff to people who paid for the game in full, which amounts to (im sure) more spent than they ask for now for full access? Tera did it right. It rememberd that some people have paid for the game in the past, and grants them full character slots, and no pesky nerfs to the game. Hell they even tossed old p2p players a small bit of cash shop money.
Basically, create a founder system in SWTOR. Realize that a lot of people who might return have more than 2 characters and might want to start a new character on returning. Who might have characters set up to where more than 2 hotbars are needed. Who have already paid a decent amount for the game, realizing that to continue past where they are will have to spend again.
This whole "sorry you paid so much in the past...pay us again for use of this now free game that you already paid for" ticks me off.
