tortanic is sinking fast---> F2P is their desperate attempt to get people playing again.

tortanic is sinking fast, servers are fileld with water and their director (captain) went missing. Their half way under the cold water. Their only hope is free to play, desperate attempt to revive the franchiase and get people playing again.

 

I know i bought the collector's edition, never again though.  Someone throw tortanic their lfieboats please. :p

    And ToR will continue to be around for years to come, despite what whiners whine about.

     

    just like how everything weas the "nail in teh coffin" for SWG, yet it went on for 5 more years, that was alot of final nails, guess those people never learned what final meant.

    Apparently stating the truth in my sig is "trolling"
    Sig typo fixed thanks to an observant stragen001.

    Yes that's true  but the fact is TOR failed in such a epic scale it hasent been seen before in MMO world.

    If it's not broken, you are not innovating.

    F2P is ONLY a money trap because most people confuse F2P with a free game.

    There is a trent of games going straight to f2p this is true, the other newish trent is to go f2p when the game failed to be sub-based, this should hint you something..

    ToR isnt a bad game per say, but the game is lacking on too many aspects, encouragings to play alts to distract from them is NOT a solution.

    The only games I know of that has a decent F2P system are City of Heroes, LoTR and Aion/North America since most things you buy in those games are fluff items. The rest of F2P games are basically Pay to win games.


    Even non-MMO games are going for the money scheme, like Forza 4 requiring you to buy car packs to purchase cars that you want (didn't need to do this in Forza 3), or having to pay to wear alternative jerseys in NHL series, and Dice recently added a $50 flat fee premium for all future expansions in Battlefield 3 (get the existing players to pay more now rather than fewer players to pay less or possibly not buying expansions later) and then immediately announce Battlefield 4 right after.


    Bioware did say they will release the expansion (HK51) for $10, but who knows how they'll handle F2P, will we have to buy speederbikes to travel faster, will we have to pay for gear above war hero and campaign, will we have to pay real money to add slots/bays to banks and inventory and GTN, etc.?

    Funny.  There was 500 people on the Republic fleet and even more than that on the Imperial fleet on my server last night.  TOR is still the #2 subscription based game on xfire.

    Fail troll is fail.

    I assume you're on a merged server (TOFN)?


    Also look at the actual numbers between WoW and TOR (and TSW and TERA and EVE), the gap is pretty huge between #1 and #2. TOR has been steadily sliding down, EA's stock has been sliding down and so has active subs.
