This is 2012 , not 2004 . Sorry but this was a lousy launch . How can you actually release a game with no Flashpoint queue system , no pvp balance , faulty programming which makes Warzones lag , faction disbalanced issues and reward people that didnt slept for days so they get to kill in warzones with the good gear and win always almost by default ; which makes the farming for them super easy. Honestly this is a huge dissapointment .I advise you to look the other way , to successful MMO's like WoW before releasing a game like this . Either you keep up or dont get in the competition. All you going to get out of this is a few months and then its free 2 play! Game feels like its 2004...just saying

Don't play any other MMORPG but World of Warcraft.
You're going to be disappointed.

Your disapproval is noted, however, this game was in development since about 2006. It's interesting how you cite WoW as a successful MMO and indeed it has been but it had a shotty launch as well, plagued by a multitude of bugs. Warzones weren't around in WoW at launch neither were dungeon queues, yet it still took off. In order to compare this game to WoW properly you should analyze both at their launch, in reality, their about the same. I'd give this one a bit of an edge because it had stuff that it probably learned from WoW but WoW itself didn't innovate but re iterated what already existed and made it smooth and more enjoyable. It took what was good and made it better and left out what drew a lot of complaints. Balance was also a HUGE issue at WoW launch too since it wasn't until Burning Crusade that both factions got the same classes (Paladins/Shamans) so there was always an outcry about how one class was more OP then the other and how one never got to go raiding and so on. (I draw all this since I played WoW a couple weeks after launch...since it was almost impossible to be there AT launch due to the same queue problems in this game)

It's also funny that you mention being upset about being asked "Why" you want to quit. Every single time I took a break from WoW I would be asked everytime why I was desubbing with that corny human begging animation and the crying orc. They ask, so they can try and see if they can use that feedback to improve the game if you have a "real" problem with it's mechanics. In reality, I believe it is generally agreed that of most MMOs to release to date the most "complete" was "Rift" and I never really got to play that one in spite of the good things I heard. I had been disenfranchised with MMOs at the time...burned out by WoW and while the similarities are there I like the interactive story and FPs in this one and it feels alot less boring doing your regular grinds here. Just incase you want to add why play a "clone". Bioware has always had great stories...I also can't wait till Mass Effect 3

hahahah you're pretty much whining because you don't want to put enough time into the game, and you want it all handed it to you on a silver platter. Good job, go back to WoW, you're no major loss. Bye.

WoW asks you why you quit as well.


Just saying even if this game loses 90% of the subs it won't go F2P. EA hasn't made DaoC, UO or WAR F2P why would they start with this?



EDIT:


This is 2012 not 2004 please learn how to post in the CORRECT FORUM. People are here to talk about Star Wars not about your WoW fandom.

I used WoW as an example and recognition of a great game , but im not playing it anymore cause I already had 8 years of fun and now im done with it. So the wow fan boy comments ( which none are smart comments btw) don't really elaborate anything. Its true that the launch didn't had those features but that's my point IT SHOULD. We've been spoiled with other MMO's with great features and it has became the "default" features a game should have before releasing it. I can give you a great example. How many of you (and be honest) have played a new mmo in the past just ot leave WoW because it got you bored or w/e reason ; then you play this new mmo and realize how great WoW features are and you end up cancelling ? Examples are all over , you can start by Rift. So please if you're going to post a wow fan boy reply over and over again well be my guest , but recognize this isn't the point

I refer to my well thought out post where I addressed all that. You can't judge something new with something established. Then cite as to why it makes it good or bad. Good reason why they probably didn't do it yet is because it's still in development or planning on being added later because ALREADY there IS people asking for FP queues but there is a debate being held that they want it to be same server only, which I concur with. None of this cross server cacophony that WoW had. No game is without balance issues at launch..or any other problem you cited as your reason for not liking this game. The hate toward the people who "don't sleep" getting all the good gear...the initial ladder system in WoW during the Grand Marshal/High Warlord days was the same absolute BS and other then cool titles you HAD to play without sleep...it was annoying and I -hated- it. So, again that was "changed" and isn't present in this game..which is also why they're adding a level 50 bracket because the 50s currently have that "Gear" advantage you speak of 1-49 seem to run ok and I didn't hate it when I was in the warzones at launch...its only when it was swarmed by 50s in champion gear that ***** everyone much like resilience vs non resil because of the "expertise" that gear yields.

Your arguments are moot because most of them will be addressed in a few content patch updates from now, but because WoW has spoiled people they use it as a lynchpin for all OTHER MMOs. I wonder if that means Blizzard's other MMO "Titan" will fail because it's also not WoW. I'm just saying, once again, these kinda games evolve and change and that game you like to use to classify all other games by it...didn't have all those "neat" things at launch either. If you played for 8 years...you would know this.

Didn't you quit? Why are you still on our forums?

And the wrong one to boot.
Hail to the King, baby.
