Why so much hate for this game?

Hello OP here's my 2 credits. I have played WOW... wow.. as an MMO is blindly easy to lvl up in, you can churn out lvl 80's in 1 to 3 days...(played!!), Then they added the "wait in line for Uber gear system" which made it even easier to Equip a new toon. Now the lvl cap 85 or 90 whatever. Wow is hack and slash pure and simple. OH and now you have the ever beloved 'Kung Fu Panda' Class.
So in my opinion WoW is for those that like to be bottled Fed. Foolishly fast lvling, easy peasy gear acquisition. and cartoon character rips for classes = the MMO for the masses..

when a person is ready to step UP from that... THIS is where our game comes to the fore.
Deep and involved story lines that just happen to be Fully voice acted. Hair raising battles that are EVERY bit as acrobatic and as fast paced as any of the movies. Your combat will never be hack and slash.. because doing that in This game ends in fast and humiliating death. And there is just more and more on the plus side that making comparisons to wow becomes a moot point. Hey.. I can compare a 63 Volkswagen Beetle to hmmm lets say...a
Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 but what the heck is the point?? With one you look at and say.. 'oh.. nice classic car'. The other you get in and juuust before you ease your foot all the way to the floor, look out the drivers side window at all the WoW'ers that WISHED they had what it takes and whisper...'Zoom! Zoom!'.

So when the haters get to hating and you're getting close to raging, Just smile and ask, "You play WoW... doncha!" and there will be no more debating...

True that. This game is the greatest. I've had great times, and it's not over.

First i have to admit iam a big fan of the game and i have never enjoyed a game this much, i hope some of the subs will return after the summer. I know a few people that canceld their sub beacuse they did not have the time to play at summer
there are just to much other stuff to do, and the blind hate for this game is just ridiculous i mean some people hate everything the devs throws in the game. If they hate it so much its apparently not a game for them

I think all the **** behaviour coming from people about SWTOR being rubbish is psychological. Some people think Star Wars is stupid so that makes them immediately hate the game. Or, more often than the former, the brain is just a weird thing. For some odd reason it makes us focus on the negatives and forget completely about the good aspects to the game.

Too many world of warcaft comparisons, I personally never played the game, but at the same time im not in to treasure trolls and warlocks and what not unless its an elder scrolls game or something.

I think this is a great game. I have been having fun, and the story is top of the line for a massively multiplayer game.
It's like people dont appreciate **** anymore, so they made it free and people still can't appreciate it.

Like, so much hating to the point where it seems like most of the people on this site simply play games all day and nit pick at what they DONT like about it.

If you dont like it disappear; nobody will care or remember you. Its not Bioware's fault that you paid for the game and continue to play it with a recurring fee. I think is *********** retarded that you continue to pay for a game you loath so much.
Lots of people paid for 6 months upfront or hope to see it get better. I have unsubbed.

You mentioned not playing WOW. If you had you would understand the complaints. This game is WOW but further dumbed down and reskinned. That's precisely the problem. Most of us have played WOW. We wanted something new, not WOW reskinned.
