I'll repeat it again:

FIX THE FPS ISSUE
AND THE GAME WOULD BE WORTH IT!

We agree on something! I want something entirely fresh. Gamers do. The genre will die soon without it. I hope you are right btw. But I still promise you that there will still be huge complainers on these same points. It's just the state of the gamers. I hope they are a success.

Of course people will cry, but then they'll realize that 1. the game isn't about rushing to the end (although there will be a decent amount of end game) and 2. they can go back and get scaled down to do the fun stuff they missed in the crazy grind

Actually, it is, not the /who in the fleet...but xfire.

To get a rough average you need a large sum of data. That data could range from 100 (very rough) to 1,000,000 (very accurate) as long as it isn't all collected from one geographic location.

Xfire is not restricted to a singular geographic location, ethnicity or financial class, and while it may not be 100% accurate, using the data obtained from xfire is valid. It's the same as polling 1000 people from 50 states breaking each state into 10 sections and polling 100 people from each of the 10 sections. His data doesn't include everyone, but it gives you a rather rough, but valid idea of what is happening to SWTOR.

stop flooding.

Because for most people where it was a software issue, it's been fixed for weeks.

Fix your machine.

Phenom or Phenom II? Problem is your machine

first-run Core i-series? Problem is your machine

Thank you Caeliux, I needed a laugh and that induced some snickering.

Seriously though, we shouldn't compare TOR to the WoW we have today or what came out in 2004. TOR doesn't hold up very well against either. Nah... this line is too mean. Especially when you consider how much more time, talent, and treasure BioWare spent making it. Basically TOR is a more accessible version of WoW, itself a more accessible version of EQ, and in this case TOR may have actually been made too accessible.

Oh man you are so right how could I have not seen that:

i7, 8gb Ram, and Radeon HD 7970 3GB are the problem sorry my mistake.

generic stat posting makes it better.

i have a hexacore i7 myself (@3.06 Ghz) and I had framerate problems till i updated my EFI bootloader.

The CPU was throttling because the motherboard chipset is set, by default, to throttle the CPU at a stupidly low voltage and heat load.

updated my EFI and i havent dropped below 60fps (with Vsync enabled) once, since, even on Illum. (and im not running a stupidly overpriced 7970, either - just a middle of the road 5870)

Posting random specs doesnt even tell 10% of the story of whats going on in your computer.

Try being a little less ignorant. Itll do wonders for your quality of life.

Except that by their own specs and requirements the problem shouldn't be the machine, especially for hex-core phenom II's. That makes it BW's problem, not mine. Especially since I'm the one paying for the game and they're the ones who want my money. But hey, defend BW's f**kups until you're one of the few left playing if you want to. The game is in trouble, and they're running out of time to fix it before they end up losing money on it.
Edited because the devs appear to have fixed at least 80% of the crap that was pissing me off.
