Just came to SWG after being away for 4 months and must say it still has ridiculous problems. Some would seem so simple to fix, yet SOE is too busy making more eye candy to keep her precious power gamers happy. The following issues are just a few I've encountered in the past 2 weeks....
Lag - still around and yes i have latest drivers, blah blah blah. Even top of the line systems struggle because of a memory leak. So stop telling me fanboys to spend 500 bucks upgrading my system (I did) cause its SOE fault, not mine for lagging. Also lag is just awful in any player city mall. Spend 5 min trying to walk in a door for a large mall. Then wait 5 min for screen to load on a vendor in there. Then wait 5 min for purchase to be complete. Then wait 5 min for object to be retrieved. Bah
Rubberband effect - Pathetic that this still exists. For those unfamiliar, hit the water on a bike or at burst run and watch your self go back in time to a previous spot. Hope their's no lair of nightsister elders nearby too !
Bike - I still can't put my swoopbike away in storage near Coronet for some weird reason. I even one time got 2 bikes to appear. Go near the repair garage by SP in coronet. Repair your bike and try and put it away. It just sits there. Go into datapad and option to generate one is there. Wallah, 2 bikes only one is "real" and oops still unrepaired so you just pissed away 5k on a wasted repair. Or my favorite is successfully repairing the bike, then off to dathomir (where there are no repair garages) and take the bike out and bam still damaged. Now I have to go back and try again, sigh.
Dantooine Missions - The current flavor of gaming is to go to Dantooine Mining Outpost and get into a solo - group for missions. In other words group up so you can pull Level 99 Mokk Shaman missions that pay out 27k each. I won't even get into game mechanics, meaning there's no way in hell I should be able to solo these so easily. Take 2, rinse and repeat. Only problem is that half the time after completing the mission you dont get paid. The mission remains incomplete so you destroy it and start over. Other times, the mission waypoint is just plain empty.
Items - Yep, they still go missing. Last night I bought some furniture to decorate a house. I bought 2 Paintings but only had 1 which I noticed when placing stuff. I figured I must have forgotten to retrieve it so went back and checked. Nop, not there so spent another 15k on another one. Sure enough this morning "bing" guess whats in my inventory, the missing Painting Some items go missing upon retrieval from bazaar too.
E-mail - Still not working as intended. The point was to make crafters know when an item sold via e-mail confirmation. Has SOE just given up on this idea ? I used to at least get half of them sales confirmed by e-mail. Now I get nada. Kind of hard keeping track of whats being bought and where.
quests - the simplest quests still don't work. I went back to the Gungan Sacred place a few days ago. One of the NPC's still has a blank text bubble. Boss Nass, finished with him but I didn't get the sense that I'm done there. Also my reward was 500 credits for a mission that required me to travel 5k meters argh. SOE wants to add a space expansion, yet can't find the time to fix something that is still broken ? Also, how about wasted spaces like the Jawa Fortress or Ewok Tree villages ? Great looking places full of npc's that do nothing and can't be talked to for missions. Why did they even bother with these ? I'm assuming that they must have eventually planned on making these mini theme parks but just never did. Its so stupid reading a loading screen that talks about the jawa fortress with merchants galore and also "watch your droids while there" junk. Delete these sections or do something with them BEFORE you release space pack.
Combat Revamp - How long do we have to wait for this ? Each publish seems to take 2 months so I'm guessing after 9, 10 till 11 (i think its publish 11 for revamp ?) 6 more months. Pathetic, especially when I got an e-mail back in February asking me to come back because of the new way to get jedi (tick tick tick, still wating on that) and combat revamp (which is now on hold). In the meantime, I can get my kills stolen by every 13 yr old running around with the latest flavor of the month profession (rifleman).
In conclusion, there's much more issues but can't recall every annoying thing right now. All I can say is SOE your lucky I'm such a huge an of star wars AND nothing else appeals to me (gaming-wise) right now. Once this fall's many games come out its bye bye swg if things dont improve fast.
