    Just look at the background of the screenshot. They include an endless bliss of water to spark the imagination of, "what can I find out there?" Too bad screenshots don't pick up invisible walls...  then people will understand how small and linear this game really is.

    Can't think of a game where I was so happy to finally get a mount. So much running back and forth. This world would benefit from being smaller, given the games design.

    EAware is still trying to give the illusion of an mmo. Smaller worlds ( is it even possible? ) would break what's left of the illusion.

    EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."

    NICE! I didn't notice. They know the game is so bad they put in fake backgrounds to make it seem like a real mmo instead of a rat maze with quests.

    Even if you could go in that water, the whole thing is about shin deep all the way across...

    lol, so true, why the heck is there all the water in the game like a kiddie pool. It kills the immersion in a game when they take away things like that. 

     

     

    Play every EAware made game since Baldur's Gate / Neverwinter Nights, EAware has never been able or willing to code water content. I think one of the Dr.s must have had a terrible trauma in the bathtub as a child or something and decried EAware to be swimming-free.

    Indeed Taun Taun's are back but players won't be coming back to ride them.

    Do not have to. They are ALREADY there. Full of them and in any part of the swtor world. Game is lively more then ever. Despite trolls and haters.

    I left this game purely for the poor character models, designs and lack of creativity. If you want to play a theme park game other than this and World of Warcraft then I suggest Rift or Everquest 2

    Why does everyone complain when they add something to this game?  I still go back and play it occasionally.  It still is one of the better MMO's out there even if it is nothing close to what SWG was at one time.  The way to play this game is to not rush to endgame.  Play a couple classes on both sides and enjoy it.

    They should fix the Space Combat, that's the only chance to get some extra players

    Super space project might fix this.

    A bit offtopic but the SSSP is in an early playable state as of the cantina tour in San Diago. Quote below.

    The Super Secret Space Project question was asked, and Damion Schubert was ready for it. He said the project is now in an early playable state. That’s all he would go into on the matter.

    If Bioware stopped doing Tauntauns and other cash shop money grabbers, maybe they would have finished the SSSP long time ago.

    That shows EA priorities...............just saying.

    I have a feeling we'll all be let down once we see the SSSP in action.

    I am done with SWTOR but I really hope EA understand how important this is for the future of the game.

    It doesn't look like they are in a hurry though................

    I hope their turning circle is small enough to cope with the corridors.

    I was more worried about their height as I might not be able to run under trees etc , If you mean't the TaunTaun that is.

    It is like reverse alchemy - turning gold into lead.

         Ehliya,

         SWTOR was fun...I even went to the launch party in NYC....

         but your reverse alchemy comment has me rolling...LMFAO

         Remember this...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRmJh2Qw0HU

         This game had so much potential...it was impossible for it to live up to the hype...

    Actually swg fans ruined swtor cuz it wasnt swg2. Swtor was awesome and if anything the worlds were too big took forever for world pvp. Only bad thing about the game was alts cuz u did all the quests before. Sad tho swg was never ever considered a success but now the few 100 ppl who played it come on these forums all the time and just talk about how wow is horrible and going free to play swtor was worst game ever created and sandbox are the only real mmos

    SWG fans didn't ruin SWTOR...Bioware did.

    First, they made the stupid mistake of creating a "Story Driven MMO." Most MMOs can't even deliver content on time much less Story driven content...Bioware played themselves with this comment because they have to do real work....

    Now the "Story Driven" is a cash store...lets see what other items from ST: ANH, ST:ESB, ST: ROTJ "appears" in SWTOR.

    Tauntauns are only on Hoth, you dolts...http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Tauntaun

  • residentxresidentx Columbia, MDPosts: 88Member

    I never played SWG...

    I was looking to get a piece of the Star Wars action at the ground level(new mmo - 10 year lifecycle)...that was the appeal of SWTOR.

    I was a fool...there's no other way to say it.

    I bought into the hype....Damn Bioware Marketers...

    For closing comments, Bioware couldn't satisfy everyone. They made design decisions for growth and the extra large maps, the complexity of the game should have worked but it didn't. I think they underestimated how demanding the gamers are.. Also, F2P was coming and they didn't build the game with that consideration. It was like a total re-engineering. It hard to win when things are changing so fast...so many parties to try to satisfy. 

     

    The other thing that hurts them. I watched all the cutscenes on youtube for all the characters, why should I play this game now?

    I know when I think SWTOR I think a game that needs more mounts.

    There is new story content coming in 2 week then 1 week later then October the 1st. Plus story in FP's and OP's. We have space ships , so after training a tauntaun to take a saddle just pop him/her on our spaceships , or better still teach him on the space ship with a toy saddle from a tauntling , many ways. So why the triple post ? Edit is not your friend ?

    So many have fallen to the Dark Side.

    I think when Vader and the Emperor said "Give into your anger", they meant embrace it.

    Not try and  f*** it to death like some psyco twisted love-hate relationship.
