Why so much hate for SWTOR?

    At launch there was hate because the game was largely seen as a very very expensive WoW clone that had non meaningful choices, and was an extremely linear MMORPG. The story was good, and still is worth playing because of that, but from what I remember the main reason it cost so much was the voice acting. 

    It also really didn't help that SWG was shut down a week before launch, so you had a lot of anger surrounding what happened to that game and the players were upset that they expected them to go to this game. 

    As of right now though, it's not a bad game, just really feels like a product of the time. Animations and combat feel super stiff, but the story is fun to follow.

    Also it's Star Wars. Everyone both loves and hates anything Star Wars. Even Star Wars fans hate all but like the first two films.

    I like SWTOR as a single player game, as an MMO it struggles.

    Same as Warhammer Online, had a rocky launch and that just sticks with people.

    Pvp experience in this game is horrible. Elitist ranked players ask their developer friends to bann/block someone just for being bad and ruining their games in solo ranked. I was blocked without any reasons just because one swtor streamer organised a mass-report on me even though i haven't done anything against rules and there was no proofs of their claims. Disgusting pvp, i deleted my character, quited the game and deleted it completely. When i asked customer support why they blocked my pvp access they said nothing. They didn't even say any certain reason for the sanction. I guess this game was made just for some closed circles of players who are rulling it as they want
