Sony got greedy and dumbed SWG down to try to capture some of the WoW market share. They paid the price for their foolishness. Unfortunately, many, many gamers lost one of the great MMOs to greed.

This game is taking more of a Warhammer Online trajectory. Fortunately, they are listening to player feedback and issuing patches so there may be hope yet.

To answer your question ToR and SWG are at opposite ends of the spectrum regardless of SWG's Pre-cu, cu, or the NGE eras. They are nothing alike in any manner other than licensing.

ANd btw, that was what I acctually said; I don't have much experience from SWG NGE because I stopped play when they realised it; so that was my question.

The two are not even close.
The NGE invalidated all the hard work done by the players who started at launch by allowing everyone to be a Jedi on day 1 of playing. That's why it was an epic fail.
The first year of any MMO is full of ups and downs.
Today is a QA issue. DEVs have nothing to do with software deployment and should never even have access to production servers.

I quite enjoyed NGE... It had some really good things going for it by the time SOE closed it down. I happily played NGE on 3 seperate accounts. If SOE were to take over TOR I for one would be alot happier.

no, no it's not. The level of incompetance on display here far out weighs any I've ever seen in any software development. Maybe that's what BW meant when they wanted to bring in a new pillar, level of amateur never experienced before....

Yay for Lolegacy!

I played SWG on and off for years. Overall it was a great game.

I think they could learn some things from that game.
Datacrons although used for a different purpose were aquired via combat. This is something I think should change in this game. Jumping from beam to beam bothers me. If thats the kinda game I wanted to play i'd load up prince of persia.
I personally think datacrons should come from world bosses or something.

It does feel a little like swg but I find the story is much better here.

Swg (At release) also had some serious class balancing issues. My creature handler using his At Rt could destroy an entire town of republic forces.

This game seems to have a better handle on class balancing.
PVP is SWG was also a lot of fun.

All and all I loved SWG (And Tor) and wish it went free to play rather then closing down all the servers.

Did you really play SWG? I loved SWG, all my guild I had loved it. I have never heard anyone call that game flawless. It was a bug filled mess.

The NGE is nothing like this game at all. Not in the least. It changed to a point and shoot style of combat. What the hell are you talking about?

not the same, this game has a large player base for starters :P SWG was not some great success that died young, it was a failure that limped on with a few hardcore fans
