These guys are terrified that their snowflakes have melted before they even hit the ground; and for the most part they Indeed have.

Panic ensued and these same people took to the forums in an attempt to destroy the game by way of bad publicity. This is failing also. The rest of us meanwhile are reveling in our new game and just enjoying all that it has to offer. once the free month has passed and these guy head back to WoW you will see this game flourish with content and good times for all. The haters will be back in the Barrens talking about Chuck Norris' school of Panda studies.
In a way, I cannot wait for Guild Wars 2 or the Kung Fu Panda WoW expansion comes out, that way many "SWTOR haters" will have something to do besides bashing SWTOR on these forums.

Many people talk about how they believe story is getting in their way and how they hate how SWTOR is a game best enjoyed by leveling [experiencing the story] instead of more traditional MMO means. If SWTOR gets really big, developers could take note and future AAA MMOs could be more like SWTOR and less like the traditional MMO formula. So not only do they hate the game, but they fear the game's potential.
You are drawing illogical conclusions. Claiming to dislike an aspect of ANYTHING does not mean someone fears it.

This is not hard to understand. I dislike asparagus, but I do not FEAR its influence. Christ.

What angers you most: The fact you dislike SWTOR, or the fact the cheers of 1.5 million players are starting to drown out your complaint

If a hater is someone bringing issues to the attention of BW, I guess I'm one.

They do fear it, clearing a difficult raid encounter and bragging about it and showing off their epics and calling others noobs is the only part in life where they excell at something, take that away and they would have no where to turn to. That is scary and thus I support the notion that we should pat them on the back when they scream "world first" even if it wasn't and agree with them when they call 2million people noobs.

On a serious note, I dohope this is the future of MMO's, MMO' up until now was the famous drug formula, take something fun, make it more addictive and make sure they cannot quit=steady income of money

Some MMO's were good and wedid not mind too much. But why can't an MMO be like a normal game? because if you can get people to sub ALL the time you get MORE cash, simple. But BW takes a leap here, yes it has elements to keepyou subscirbing, but it also tries to offer you a REAL game with a story. Not another level cap, purple loot and coffee break for a year all while gamers spend tons of cash and time to get those purples that next year are obsolete and rinse and repeat.

SWTOR is giving me back a hope for the future of MMO's and hopefully I get to play SWTOR for years for the entertainment value and not just grinding like amindless drone.

Expand it? To what? It pretty much says it all. English is my only language, so I am unable to write this in another one. What language is your primary one, and I will try to help through Googling.

Sorry?

#1 I never claimed my solution as fact, I clearly outlined it as an opinion.

#2 I never claimed that my solution is valid for EVERYONE who dislikes SWTOR, but only as a small faction of people. One hundred people might dislike SWTOR, but only five or ten of them might dislike SWTOR because they fear it might become too big.

#3 Thanks for replying to my thread.

Its really sad when you think about it.
This is the point I am trying to make. I am not saying that EVERYONE thinks like this, but I am not denying that there are some who DO think like this. They might want it to fail because they don't want developers to use SWTOR as the baseline formula for future MMOs. Or they might want SWTOR to fail because they do not want everyone to be playing SWTOR which would mean that the MMOs that they [haters] do like might be low populated because everyone is playing SWTOR.

Hell, people were already bad mouthing SWTOR before it even came out!

I'll keep this short but hear me out. SWTOR is obviously not for everyone, especially if you are one of those old school MMO traditionalist who believes the real purpose behind MMOs is endgame and etc.....

With that being said, they do not like how SWTOR has a focus on leveling and not endgame. They do not like how SWTOR is bringing in people [such as myself] who are not traditional MMO players but rather single player gamers whos ONLY reason behind playing SWTOR is the promise of story and the ability to literally play it as a single player game if chosen to. The haters fear that if SWTOR grows and becomes really popular, then SWTOR would be used or could be used as the benchmark for future MMOs meaning future AAA MMOs will have emphasis on story.....interactive dialog....cutscenes and everything else that SWTOR does with the 4th Pillar of story.

These haters have already made up their mind that they do not like SWTOR and will either go back to other current MMOs, or just hold out until Guild Wars 2. However, because they fear that SWTOR could grow, they do not want their current MMOs or future MMOs [GW2] to be lacking in population because everyone is playing SWTOR.

So BASICALLY, the people against SWTOR pretty much want to sabatoge the popularity of SWTOR with the hopes that everyone jumps off of the "SWTOR bandwagon" and play other MMOs or hold out for future MMOs. I mean why is it that the people who supposendly have cancelled their subscription still post here? Why is it that the people who have came to the conclusion that they gate SWTOR.....continue to post here? Why is it that the most passionate opinions about SWTOR tend to be the negative ones?
The haters are pissed off becuase this game was not ready for launch and anyone who says different is just in denial.
