That said, all the other "failed" MMOS that have gone to FTP, LOTRO, STO, AOC, etc, are actually in some form FTP.SWTOR has such a restrictive FTP model that they themselves are coining it a "Free to Play option".The only innovation is that the game found a way to introduce a cash shop to a subscription based game. (Granted the playerbase is now much smaller.)I would expect a bit more objective anaylisis then a regurgitation of corporate double-speak.

     

    Objectivity from MMORPG.com about a paid advertiser? Surely you jest....

    SWTOR is just a bad MMO. No expansion will fix it The only thing that will fix it is an entire revamp and a new title.

    Correction...SWTOR is an ok single player RPG with horrible co-op.

    Its objective when you agree with the article and paid bias when you don't I'm sure you truly understand that.

    I'm still subbed, and bought the expansion, but frankly, have no desire to log in since I stopped playing months ago.  Playing SWGemu and loving a real MMO.  I just haven't gotten around to cancel my TOR sub.  Very discouraging everytime I think of that mess.

    Edit:  Scratch that, finally cancelled my sub... "Your subscription has been cancelled."

    And this is the problem that people have with SWTOR. For those of us who couldn't give a rat's rear-end about SWG we have really no problem. Mostly because we are not trying to think that this SWG 2. instead we who have "no problem" with SWTOR are not looking at it as a sequal.

    Play what you Like. I like SWOTR, Have a referral to get you going!
