God we're still in 1.1. either stop ************ and make an alt, or ****. either way... noone wants to hear you *****.
You're starting to sound angry. Perhaps the truth hurts a bit too much. "I know there's no point, and future content will be of lower quality, but stop telling other people about it!"

Canderous Ordo has never been busier. There are usually two instances of the fleet every night.

Last night there was a que to get on the server for over an hour.

there is nothing in the definition of MMO that says there should be endless end game immediately at launch. or EVER, for that matter. and yeah. reroll the other faction. and it is NOT the same as replaying Rage because every storyline is different and independant. ****, if you swap factions youll even be doing 90% different quests. so yeah. that's a good idea to keep urself entertained until the next big patch

This game is saving me money. the size and variety of this game has kept me from my (and likely a lot of other peoples) habits of needing a new game every other week. i spent 15$ on video games this month instead of 120. im happy about that.

Completely wrong. The leveling speed of TOR is shockingly linear. I leveled just as fast from 30-40 as from 40-50. This was not the case in WoW at ALL.

lol...

Okay, now that is funny.

Sorry, but I spent a lot more time gaming when WoW first came out. I don't have anywhere near as much time to game as I used too. It still took months for me to cap in WoW.

I'm not trying to flame or troll, I just wonder. I see posts about the greatness of EQ all the time and how they'd love to see another MMO like EQ, but EQ is still going and can still be played.
The graphics in EQ will make your eyes bleed.

This game prevents me from playing other games.

Like Kingdoms of Amalur. Talk about value.

How about grabbing your buddies and/or guild and rerolling republic? Ta DA! Problem solved!

Oh no, wait - then you wouldnt be able to post drivel about something YOU are part responsible for and could help fix.

Gamer psychology would be an interesting study. From my observations it goes something like this:

I was bored with the game I just left although it was good in its time, but this game sucks. But that game I played a few years back (ignoring the fact that the game still exists and is playable) was really really great, I wish there was another game like it. Oh, and the next game they are advertising, wow it is the holy grail of MMOs I can't wait for it to come out.
