That’s pretty much the only reason I’m still playing this game. If I could find another SW game that let me pvp as a Jedi or Sith or even a proper SW space sim, I would be gone so fast the door wouldn’t have time to hit me in back.

GW2 has had a F2P option since 2015, lol.

I find the GW2 community to be quite toxic nowadays. The balance has never been this bad and content is so repetitive there's no point trying out anything new.

At least SWTOR allows me to spend hours upon hours just going through the story content. That's enough for me.

I actually think the swtor community is much more toxic than GW2, especially in pvp.

I thought the GW2 Community was okayish until the pitchforks came out when a story dev got into an argument with an influencer or something on her private twitter. Granted she seemingly overreacted and wasn't exactly polite, but the level of hatred that followed was... just wow. A lot of people felt personally insulted and reacted accordingly. I thought it was scary.

In game I feel it's not better or much worse than here. WvW frequently has people arguing in map and team chat and I occasionally get butthurt whispers from opponents. The boss blitz of the current festival also provokes a lot of complaining because somehow everyone else but one or two pros is doing it wrong.
What do we do, panic, freak? I usually panic but I'm happy to freak.

I cannot take this nonsense and decided that I will want to have no linkage to that individual in GW2 who decided that paying for GEAR REPAIR in PvP (large scale PvP) is a good idea.

SWTOR will always win GW2 in my own opinion because you don't have to pay for gear repair for PvP death. That in itself is enough for me to pay monthly sub for SWTOR against playing for free in GW2. I will pay for sub but I WILL NOT PAY FOR GEAR REPAIR in GW2 WvWvW.
What a foolish comment and it was made in CAPS lol.

Correct. You don’t have to pay for repairs in pvp anymore.

If you do not know what you are talking about and you refuse to gain knowledge (google), especially about something you write in CAPS for then please sit down.

Thanks!

One can debate whether she deserved to be fired for what she said. That being said, she was the original source of toxicity in that instance and insulted not only an ArenaNet partner, but a good chunk of the playerbase. That doesn't excuse certain responses to her tweets, but let's not paint her as a victim of anything but her own poor decision...

SWTOR? There are bad eggs, but all in all is okay

The main reason that turned me off about GW2 is that there's not a lot of fashion choices there, not to mention the medieval looking style which is not really my type.

Outfit designer is really a brilliant addition in SWTOR. Well done. *claps*

GW2 has the best dye system of any MMO in my view... yet fashion sucks in GW2 for the most part. But yeah.. I agree with your critiques.... and I personally just did not like the races offered.
When you find yourself surrounded by hostile Clowns... always go for the "Juggler" first.
