my brother and i decided on a whim to play SWTOR together.
we have both highly enjoyed the ability to do quests together, the storyline, even all the cutscenes.
to be frank the combat is average, and once we saw the post-10 skill trees in direct imitation of another game's we just laughed and shook our heads.
but these are things that vary and we are enjoying ourselves so far. its a lot of fun to run all of these quests together as Jedi.
the one real sticking point we are having is EA's F2P setup. this has to be the most ridiculous, penny pinching, and stingy system. it seems bent on punishing you for playing F2P not enticing you to pay more or even subscribe. its bad enough that its actually turning us off from the game.
dont get me wrong we pay for things in games. we have been subscribers, we have even paid for crazy stuff in F2P games like WoT's. but honestly, as i said we dont feel enticed at all. at every turn where we run into the peculiar restrictions that EA has created and we react with mutual disgust.
EA, i honestly wasnt so sure that all the negative press about your F2P was accurate and not simply the report of the bitter and disappointed. i know you're not listening, but if you were you should reconsider your marketing. the object is to make people *want* to spend money, not punish them for being F2P.

One could be called finite, the other infinite.
A finite game is played for the purpose of winning,
an infinite game for the purpose of continuing play."
