In the beginning, when BW and LA set free the first info about their new title, SW:TOR, the community went crazy over the lack of traditional MMO tenants, like cafting and grouping and so on.
Then the answer (which is still out there in a video interview) to "what is end game" further fanned the flames. The answer, BTW, was sometning along the lines of hit level cap, roll a new toon, rinse and repeat.
BW kicked in the PR machine to dispell these concerns by spinning the mechanics and a tweek here and there. But upon closer review, nothing really changed
The game was, and is, a new KOTOR with alot of people in it, occasionally forming up for flash points and raids. How many times is a player gonna have to listen to the same dialogue in the these flashpoints before they snap? How many invisible barriers is a player gonna hit trying to walk off the set path before the have had enough? Or look at the same face on all the players and NPCs? and so on and so on.
If you like KOTOR you will like SWTOR. And that is fine. Just let me know when SWTOR maintains a sub base of over 2 million past 6 months. The game will succeed. But is noting new.
If SWG launched today, as it was in the beginning, with current technology, I believe it would be a better game. If a western/old west skinned game built on the SWG model of old would launch, it would be a better game.
BW-LA-EA's SWTOR:KOTOR is was it is. Alot of poeple will enjoy it, but please put the koolaide down and just play the game. Get back to us in 6 months or so.
Ok, that is all. These are not the droids you are looking for, and i mean that.
