    A good start would be to start your post with "I feel it's.." or "to me personally.." something along those lines. it saves a lot of back and fourth posting

     

     

    This troll tried too hard to find something wrong with the OP. =/

     

    I haven't played the game and from what I'm hearing have not intention to. To me uninteractive things like automated player action, as in you double click and watch your character fight, is what killed swg along with travel time. A direct link to cutscenes. Which I know will get pretty old, pretty fast, c'mon most ppl skip the cutscenes usually ffs, because they're boring.

    It wasn't that hard. An old SWG vet trolling. Nothing new in that.

    Sorry to see you won't be playing TOR. You will be missed by those that care

    I just click now the side quests away but the main story is pretty good as an Inquisitor I have to say. Iam now lvl33, there was a point where it wasnt that good but last lvls I have to say it was pretty nice. Now SPOILER ALERT I have killed my master "Darth Zash" and their followers now follow and want to learn from me :).

    I have to say Iam not that guy who likes or care for stories, I always click them away but  the class quest so far is pretty good.

    So just hold on, I was around lvl25/26 and also was somehow bored but now the joy since Tatooine and Alderaan came back ...

  • AyuroxAyurox Member UncommonPosts: 58

    OP is you say 95% is timesink and 5% is gameplay, then by the time you wrote this post you should have been 50 !!!

  • neorandomneorandom Member Posts: 1,681

    lvl 40/valor 39 sorc, just got thundering blast hours before the patch downtime, o god its jizztastic (100% crit rate if target is afflicted). i can drop a group of republic scum before they realize theyre in danger in pvp now.

    BTW SWTOR rocks, having a blast with everthing i do with my guildies.

  • SendenSenden Member UncommonPosts: 602

    After leveling two different characters (one each side) I tend to agree that the story does get boring.. it gets to the point where ur just hammering the space bar going "BLAH BLAH BLAH" some of it is truly interesting and worth hearing but there is only so many times you can hear someone's personal woes just so you can grab a kill/retrieve quest. The class stories are interesting though however there feels like a lot of filler stuff just to get to the good stuff especially with the BH.

    Percieved time != real time.

    On travel: I know after months testing, I now grind my teeth from 13-15 waiting for sprint and from 20-25 waiting for my speeder. With both of those, travel time is less of a pain. I did Tatooine without a speeder once and it was not fun.

    So, for some people who aren't into the story, time in convos drags. That I can grok on some level.

    I can't relate though...really. Don't know what class the OP is playing, but I finished Act 1 on my Agent last night (yay, legacy name!) and it blew me away.

    Freakin' epic stuff.

    Yesterday (yay also for day off work), I ran flashpoints, played the space game (it's kinda growing on me, and I never thought I'd say that) and did a couple of warzones. I like to mix things up in games, if the OP is feeling story is too much of a grind, maybe try some of the other stuff on offer?

    I agree with the sentiment of the OP, in that the storytelling is too long imho and not engaging. I am a huge Star Wars fan and am struggling to be drawn into the game so far.

    If you hate the movies and rather would get old fashion text and go on youre way.. select preferences at the character select screen, disable movies.  and use spacebar..

    Me, I love the story's and movies,  they do take some time but unless youre a min-maxer who sees every min of not killing someting as lost time its realy not a big deal.

  • zimmy910zimmy910 Member UncommonPosts: 190

    I really like the cutscenes for the class storyline and there were a few other major quests that were enhanced by the voice acting etc.. But some quests are just 'kill ten rats' quests in disguise and having to go through the dialogue feels very tedious.

    95%, ya not even close, but to each their own.

    Yeah, generic. Becuase 95% of the time I listen to the cut-scene's in RIFT.

    You going to keep playing?

    That's a lie, unless maybe you really suck at the cutscenes and just sit there unable to make a decision for hours.


     

    Epic comment. I totally agree. Oh and if you turn sub titles on and can read faster then a 1st grader, you can hit the space bar to make it quicker.

    Decide yourselves. Is this a story heavy game or a mob grinder?

  • sanosukexsanosukex Member Posts: 1,836

    in my experience so far its like maybe 10% dialog, 50% fighting crap, and 40% running around when doing quests.. not a horrible balance would prefer little less running around but it's not too bad

    Is this your first game of any kind, ever?  Whether it's hide and seek, chutes and ladders, COD, Quake, Skyrim, SWTOR, or anything....

    true the real question is does the TIME SINK = FUN   that's all that really matters in the end.. not like we are making money playing these games.. well at least most of us aren't..

    I'll listen to any opinions but  when the OP said 5%/95% split, it immediately discredits them. It is about 15% cutscene (maybe 20%) and 85% (or 80) game play. Since in their opinion, the 5/95% are FACTS, it's not even worth discussion. A case of someone who is wrong and refuses to discuss otherwise. *shrug*

  • kotzkotz Member UncommonPosts: 100

    Its a great game.

    Cant come up with another game that i would like to play instead of Swtor...  Seriously, think about that.

     

    Any1 having an idea of what that could be??

  • Ramonski7Ramonski7 Member UncommonPosts: 2,662

    Sorry (I know I'm going to get warned for this) but the post by the original poster  was 50% timesink  AND 50% pointless. Is that's a fact? Dunno. And just to make it clear, it was pointless in part because it is not a true reflection of what he stated in the thread title...where's the review? All I saw was 3 lines of impressions (not backed by any review) that wasn't really helpful .

     

    By the way, can someone explain to me what game is not 100% timesink AND 100% gameplay? I mean you are playing a game which IS nothing more than a timesink anyway...correct?
