Does 10 years of playing WoW count? In which case he might be for real.
Otherwise... not so much. (and the first years of WoW probably had a similar leveling speed as SWTOR)

Slowest my pasty white butt. Only reason I didn't have a level 50 within the first couple months-and I was here DAY ONE-is cause I was too busy making chars in the other storylines and loving it. And since I do lots of sidequests, FFS, most of the game I'm usually running 5 odd levels above the average content. Hell, half the time I didn't really wanna run alts during the 2x weekends cause it felt like I became obscenely overleveled. But thats my opinion, I could be wrong.

Seriously guys, I love the game and think its one of the best MMO's in the last 10 years and once the new Star Wars movies hit, you guys are going to get a nice boost to membership numbers but...

pls for the love of all that is good in MMO's.... increase the xp, its the primary reason I don't play as much as I would like to, it just seems like forever to level. I'm in a guild on my characters, paying subscriber and use the xp buffs when I can but man just seems really sloooooowwww.......

Don't want to unsub cause I really do love to log in and play from time to time but thinking of either renewing my sub with WOW or going to Wildstar once I see the reviews.
Vanilla WoW took more than 5 times longer to level than star wars. And honestly SWTOR is pretty fast if you farm the right things, only takes ~15 hours of grind game time to go from 1-50 and another 2 or 3 raids to get you to 55.

I mean if you really want to be mad about this game's leveling curve you should have tried Runescape....

92-99 same exp as 1-92... 98-99 same as 1-75. O and exp rates in the 10k /hr range for years on skills that need 13.1m to get to 99. And did I mention you have 20+ skills to level?

I'm curious, do you agree with the OP, that leveling in TOR is "brutal" and worse than other MMOs in the last 10 years?

Or are you here just to complain about the people that disagreed with him?

Neither. Just telling him he was in for a lot of disagreement.

My post was as much a complaint as yours was.

Thankfully, even if this is a real complaint, it's one of the first I've seen complaining that leveling is too slow. There have been many posts asking for slower leveling and a way to turn off XP gain altogether.

Just wait for the instant-55-IWIN Cartel Item coming up soon but, dang, you're probably too impatient for that also. Oh well, go play something else then if this isn't your scene.

PS - Since you also rarely play at all I'd rather you not even get to 55 cuz you'll have no idea what to even do if you haven't been, you know, playing and learning as you go. Worst thing in the world for any game would be to have someone go from level 1-MAX in 3 days with no idea how to actually play.

I always try to be a whole planet ahead when playing as a RP. I'm a 38 and heading into hoth, I have some flash points to do. Flash points are by far the best way to level IMO because 1 it's fun, you gain easy XP, it's rarely frustrating, most of the time, but I find then fun and enjoyable.
