Who Expected the Forums To Look Like... This

Knowing that I wouldn't have Day 1 access, and that I'm on winter break from classes, I decided that I would sleep in a bit, then see the fresh, new forum.

After getting on this morning, at the forum menu, I thought "Wow! This looks like something I can work with. Doesn't appear to have any kind of server forum... weird. Maybe they'll add it soon though. Now off to general discussion!"

In my mind, I was expecting to read threads titled:

List of Non-SW:TOR Related Things to Do 'Till You're In!
Welcome Back Everyone!
What Did You Do Without the Forum?
Who's Ready to Rack Up Some Infractions?!

Unfortunately that was not the case. I was really looking forward to coming back to a fresh forum, thinking there would be a lot of enjoyment with it being back. While the rage/conspiracy/cry/complaint/whiteknight posts have been entertaining for the time being, I wish this isn't what the forums looked like. Nor is it what I expected.

Ah well. Maybe in a galaxy far, far away the forums will be a better place.

Thanks for reading!

SWTOR forums: you will never find a more wretched hive of whiners and QQ'ers!

I never once deceived myself, I knew this was exactly what the forums were going to look like, and I think a lot of others did too. What you suggested would have been much nicer of course, but like you said, maybe one day... in a galaxy far far away

Apparently their programmers don't know how to count.

I posted before the old forum shutdown that this was going to happen, as did quite a few other folks. It's form and function of an MMO launch. It's actually very likely that it will get worse.

I fully expected complaints about the forums. You did not disappoint.

Plz whine moar - oh and get back to work and school those who took the day off... To play a game you're not even supposed to have access to for 2 more days!!

Think the first question I will ask anyone joining my guild will be;

'What did you think of launch?' That will help me separate the idiots from people that know how to think and reason..

Hello, folks! We ask that discussion on the General Discussion forum be centered around Star Wars™: The Old Republic™. Due to this we will be closing the thread for being off topic. Thanks!
