I hear a great outcry in the force!!
Unless Bioware makes some massive changes to SWTOR withen a year after its release it will be free to play. I know this will not happen because LucusArts will not allow any game that is free(I was wrong! They will do anything to make a buck!!). So SWTOR will become like SWG after Sony ruined it. It will just hang on for years untill LucusArts decides to come up with Star Wars Episode 100. Star Trek failed to listen to the the beta testers and thought "I have one of the greatest fan bases and anything I do will sell." Bioware seems to have that same attitude. They are not even going to have an open beta. Think of the problems we have now and multiply them by thousands of angry paying customers.
SWTOR is a single player MMO. Thier is no economy! Everything is provided for you. They even give you a companion so you dont have to interact with other players. During the last beta test I purchased many items on the AH to build up my charactor. I soon found out I could get everything I need from drops, quests and the warzone. You can tell thier is no economy by the poor design of the AH. Thier is not even a search command!!
Star Wars fans think they are getting a space game similar to SWG. Does Bioware really think paying customer are going to accept the space mechanics in this game? When SWG first came out it did not have space content but they advertised this. They did not try to hide it. They advertised that the space content would come in a future expansion. Bioware should fire the con artist sales person who convinced them the space mechanics they have now will satisfy the customers!! If they arnt satisfied, who cares. They wont find out until about level 15 anyway and we will already have thier money. Before I got into beta I read everything I could about SWTOR and thought this is going to be a great game. I thought my ship was great until I tried space combat for the first and last time. I could not believe this was the space part of the game. I was so pissed I stopped playing for a few days. I knew then that the game was going to fail. I know now why BioWare is so secretive about game content. I continued to play the game because Im hoping BioWare will come to thier senses and give us a real space game.
On the good side the game is fun to play for awile. I dont like to grind so I followed the main storylines as far as I could until I was forced to grind. At about 23 I recieved a storyline quest that needed a charactor of about level 27 to complete. I then had to grind until I was high enouph to complete the quest. During this beta the game is not as much fun. Ive tried many diffent types of charactors but all the quest and storylines are starting to get repititions and boring. I remembered in SWG I enjoyed buying and selling things more than fighting and completing quests.
