I dunno. Based on the SWTOR hype for the new Expansion I thought, why not look back to my Level 55 Inquisitor, my fav character from before, and see that Revan 55-60 content, see how the game fares. But to be honest, after 3 days, I didn't really feel the Force.
First day I did some old lv 52-54 quests to accustom myself on Makeb again, Dailies and other stuff. My initial feeling was, how much I really had gotten out of this 2005 combat system: 4 full skill bars with 60 skills, a clusterfuck of UI stuff on my screen (yes I know you can rezise, but I already need glasses, thank you very much). I really feel I grew out of this Everquest-ish combat sytem of "stand still and press your 40 skills in your 4 skillbars all through". These days I really value more dynamic combat with fewer skills, like GW2.
Second... the new planet the new quests... it wasn't really thrilling me either. Kill groups, tag items, go to cave end, press button. I mean, what is the greatest story good, if the actual gameplay feels like 2005?
Third, damn those bosses. I don't know who made the balancing. I thought spending real good money on good lv 55 gear would allow me to defeat those instance bosses. But NO. Yes I know, they have "strategy" aka "press button X now within 2 seconds". The console boss mechanics. Something I as PC gamer always hated, those bosses which are like a timed reaction test, instead of a fight. After 2 bosses (on my level), I was >>completely<< unable to defeat because of said consolish mechanics, I quit.
SWTOR, if you wanted to capture me again, you did a lousy job.
I know some will say, thank god there is real challange. But Wildstar tried "challange" and go see how well that went. I would be so bold to call myself a fairly avarge gamer, with years of experience, so I assume one *should* be able to manage a boss which is supposed to be soloed without watching a long youtube guide.
