I deleted STO the second I realized that I would be forced to be a seeder for their game.

In the 1 week I've played, I've experienced:
DAILY server reboots
MULTIPLE shard disconnects
They don't have individual servers. They run MULTIPLE MMO's on the same server
Lost characters
Launcher lockouts
When upgrading my skills, the game CRASHES to desktop
Rude community
Game bugs (what MMO doesn't???)

So when complaining how bad SWTOR is, remember... it could ALWAYS be worse!!
Lol you based a game off of a massive expansion week? You know that everyone and their brother was trying to get online at once?

STO always had issues with mega releases.

The game is back to being stable...but continue with judging a game after it adds a large expansion / faction during a 1 week period...

That's like assuming day 1 of launch of any MMO will equate to the exact same routine everyday until that MMO shutsdown...not sure where your logic is OP.

I will say this STO has insanely better space, graphics, and customization options than TOR will ever have in its lifespan. STO suffers from meh ground combat at the moment, but future Seasons will probably update it. Oh and their F2P = access to all (with the exception of credit cap, bank space) content in the game, not counting stipeds. Literally no difference playing wise.
With unity, comes strength...with strength, comes power...with power...comes obedience.....

People talk about this game being rushed into production. You want to talk rushed? That game was rushed and had a brutal launch. Its an alright game. The space combat is pretty good but the rest of the game is pretty lacking.

Same, I've been spoiled by SWTOR that I expect the story to be handled to be at least more like SWTOR now. of course if an MMORPG has much better gameplay for me compared to SWTOR then I'll play it but I haven't really seen an MMORPG that is really better than SWTOR by any great degree.

That's right, Trekkies, come get me.

Three words... Jar Jar Binks.

Twiki (with or without Dr. Theopolis), Muffet, and Wesley Crusher could form a boy band and do a Buck Rogers/BSG/Trek crossover tour, then crash on a remote asteroid, meet up with Doctoor Zee, and save themselves by making a spaceship out of random Cylon debris... and it would still be much less stupid than Jar Jar.

Welcome to Patch month in STO. I wouldn't expect any of the major bugs to be fixed until two or three months from now, if ever. The bright side, I didn't see a cactus in Cryptic's hand this time. Every time some kind of resource change comes into effect Cryptic pulls out a mighty cactus and proceeds to bend the playerbase over stating, "oh it's a minor change. Nothing to worry about at all."

I think the reaction to the removal of dilithium rewards from STFs was affecting their zen store income so badly they had to revert the change. Not like people didn't protest that change during the testing period but hey it was pushed live because the community doesn't know what they're talking about.

Kind of the story of Cryptic's life, push really buggy patches live with horrid changes that nearly everyone hates and do an Olympic gymnast back flip the moment it starts to hurt their zen store revenue.

Agreed. Story presentation is important to me.

Which is odd, as TOR has every intention to move their storyline into a traditional MMO storyline.
"It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more...than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so *********** what." - Stephen Fry
