But the game has been out for a year or so and has made very little progress in that time - give it to me now comments may have been realistic in January, but now?

To the OP - suggest you give up now and save yourself the angst - I was around back then and not much has changed on the points you raised. However, I have almost finished MoP and a few weeks / months here look like a nice change.

I am a founder too. I did leave the game for a bit, but it wasn't because the game was bad. The OP is completely a bore, just like he explains about this game.

I came back to play the game again, because I wanted to and because a friend of mine was expressing interest and he just bought and subbed to this game. Not because I am hoping there will be something different from when I stopped my sub. I stopped it mainly because my whole guild just quit, and I was a little down from that. I come back, and the guild bank is untouched for months, so I am slowly draining it.

I enjoyed the fresh designs of space sci-fi and the coolness of having my own ship
I enjoyed how the characters have strong personalities and how immersive the game can be


I did not enjoy how poorly this game ran on my pc compared to just about every other game I have
I did not enjoy 3-5 min load screens
I did not enjoy the stutter every time I dismounted
I did not enjoy the boring rotations of certain classes, and the copy paste skills classes share
I did not enjoy having to do the world quests over and over and over again just to get to the few mins of fun class quest lines.
End game looked boring and unoriginal
Lack of customization after creation. NO barbershop, no paid character transfers, no appearance change


Ive been away from this game for many months now. I've seen the dev team and leadership all change hands. Many who championed this game at launch are long gone.

Unlike them, I return to give this game one last shot. Mists of pandaria is a damn good game and if this game fails to impress me then i'll simply jump into free to play during wow down time. However you can prove to me that the game is worth my sub by fixing the perfomance issues and adding the following

-Less mob density. I cant explore the planet if every step theres 8x8 rows of mooks lying around

-Make the zone locations more memorable: there are so many codex entries detailing parts of the planet, however these areas have nothing going on in them. I'd love to be able to find cool things to in nar shaada for example. Maybe some twilek dancing, pazzak and other minigames. Give life to the planets.

More communication: if you can't release new content every month, then at least let us know whats going on every step of the way. Blizzard has my love because they come off as very sincere with their players. Bioware never says anything, leaving the faithful with nothing but blind hope

-The rest: Out of mop i love the tiller dailies ( logging on to freshly grown crops is a daily sense of accomplishment), I love all the small scale content from improved faction grinds to challenge mode dungeons to pet battles. Swtor from the start should have been designed with more in mind than the typical mmo experiance. We have done that for years, we want freshness ideas. Space combat is a start, and should be expanded upon. Find a way to make it multiplayer for starters

I wish you luck bioware ( and much love), but seriously this is it for me. Your own lead producers, devs and top employees have bailed on this game, what does that say to the players who invested in the product? Many of us are wondering if this will end up being warhammer online in space.
Thanks for buying the sub again, you know the game is going free to play in two days right? Atleast with making this thread you've given some money to Bioware ^^

Kind regards

Seems like you guys have stopped asking for better and are resigned to be happy with what you have. Back when I played many players had hoped for more from the game and asked for better. Im back to give bioware one last shot, and if I don't see change on some level during this crucial month then i will no longer give money to this project.

Have you even read 1/100th of the stuff posted on these forums?! Noone has stopped asking anything. But threatening BW with cancelling your sub is not how you get them to listen. Do a little research, understand the process, and then makes suggestions not demands.

All the things you did not enjoy are still there. If you didnt like the game before then you wont like it now.
James Ohlen: " For 2012 we really want players to feel like they're getting their money's worth. You're going to see so many changes and additions to the Star Wars Universe. It's going to be impressive. We have our Update 1.2 coming in the next week and then after that it's going to continue to roll out month after month. It's exciting."

This is true.

According to Bioware, you first have to cancel, fill in the survey, and then be in the minority before they will listen.
