    Really trying to cash in on the latest movie announcement.






    At least this time they are actually bringing content to SWTOR to try and hype both the movie and the game. Unlike previous years when it was the same ole same content.


    How's the overall game been anyway? I've honestly been thinking of re-downloading it lately.


    Why and when did you quit?



    Probably a year-ish after it was f2p? I know I quit around the time that I learned that they were selling hotbar slots in the cash shop.

    So, you didn't quit because you finished all the stories or because you had nothing to do, but in protest of sorts?

    It's kind of funny that after some years of F2P titles, it became apparent that the whole moneterary scheme is not a money sink, but a money vortex. Personally I always subscribe when given the option, avoid anything that does not offer the option or anything that force me to acknowledge that a cash shop exists after paying for a subscription.

    In the case of SW:TOR, it's easy to avoid the cash shop completely if you subscribe, which makes it a good deal in my book.

    Anthem failed, so now the devs are back to the SWTOR team to create new content LOL!

    If the game came out with an actual retail expansion I'd come back and give it a shot, but everything they have done is in these short little expansions that don't add much. I'm not sure what's the point, feed players for a few days? The potential is there to make something great. It's frickin star wars!

    FF14 is no god send it has it's problems too. But my god do they ever have the content right. Their patches put so much effort into expanding the game and some are even the size of this mini expansion and they are quick cycles too. Patch sets (by version numbers) have doubled or even tripled the amount of the original content of each expansion. Then the retail expansion is a huge amount of content with tons of new places to explore.

    If SWToR could focus and bring production much like FF14 does I think the audience would be much more wider and the game would be way more healthier.

    This is a much better MMO than it gets credit for.

    I enjoyed the pvp, it was kinda messy but fun nonetheless.

    I laughed my ass off when I started playing in the Sith side and the npcs were just wearing this really vibrant purple paintings, clothes and make-up.

    What is this? The dark side is just a bunch of fans of glam rock or something?!

    Definitely. And if they don't bork anything up with ONSL, it could be very good. The only problem is that EVERYTHING in SWTOR lives in the (constant) penumbra of 1 - 50 stories. So it only looks like there is nothing while in all honest reality there is actually quite a lot to do!

    Currently gearing is aids and a half for ppl like me that only enjoy the pvp aspect (like my fav pvp of all time is this game) but this expansion sounds like it will fix that so I'm ready to jump back in.

    they screwed this game up when they nerfed crafting especially slicing and companions, I loved it til then
    Agreed about crafting, but not about companions. Before I used one or two companions. At least now I use my favorite companion regardless of my spec. My only complaint is sharing all of them. But at least there are more options I suppose.
