I haven't heard anything about SWTOR in a long time. Last time I tried it the performance was bad, the gfx looked dated and they had screwed/nerfed with my class so much it didn't remotely play the same.
I didn't enjoy the steep learning curve. I watched hours of videos just to attempt to understand the basics. The default keyboard controls are madenning. Maybe I should not have tried to play the game with keyboard and mouse.
