Huttball.
Crate clicking + kill trading.
RNG gear.

This game has such lasting appeal, who in their right mind would leave?!

Game can't be dying!!!!!!!!!! LIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It does not take months for a new feature to be added. Yes there is an inflexible pipeline for all assets and features. But to say it takes months is just silly.

As for the combat log i always assumed they left it out so as not to confuse the casuals with all those numbers.

Why would they not launch with a Combat Log? Same reason they screwed up everything else: They have no place in the MMO world. Bioware should have just stuck to RPGs.

nah... they made 70m on box sales + 30m for the 2 months of subs...

still 100m just to break even. (they still have to pay for the full team currently working on the new content) - if subs drop below 0.5m they will probably never make their money back. (expecially if you count all the money making opportuities lost, by parking 200m in this game for 5 years)

adding ranks to pvp changes nothing. Its still the same 3 wz's with the same people.
Swtor needs more pvp

This. And i didnt even like most of their single player rpgs aside from kotor. Too much story not enough interesting gameplay.

It is dropping fast. I've never seen anything like it. This is a game people were waiting to play for 4 years and i think by the end of the month they will loose 1/2 of there subs. Our guild came to play we had 40 people come over there are only 3 of us left and we all canceled our subs this month. It's sad I really wanted this game to be great but the pvp is just really bad.

Exactly. We all wanted the game to be amazing. Hell, for a while I thought it was the best MMO ever and was a fanboi. The sad fact is, once you get past your initial feelings of excitement/fanboiness (pretty sure the fanbois are the only defenders left) and the "new and shiny" feeling, this game is really very far from a quality MMO.

It's more like...once you get to 50 you realize there's no story left and no way that Bioware could ever hope to sustain the quality of the 1-50 experience for years (not to mention decades) to come?

After 5 years development they produced a month of content. This worked fine for Dragon Age Origins. Not gonna work for an MMO.
