This is how it looks like at my end.

Now it is nowhere near as ugly as the pics some users posted, and yet it can be better.

I'm a software engineer at FGCU, it's my 3rd year, I'm learning how to code so that one day I can be part of one of these awesome teams, and I have made my own work, and let me tell you brainless whiners, there is no easy way to optimize an engine, there is no simplicity in fixing bugs, as 5 more will sprout out and cause you hell, and finally, and this is the important part.... if you don't know what they have to do, or what you are talking about, sit down like a nice little boy or girl... and shut up till it gets done...mkay...
While all that may be true about engine optimisation, a subscription fee demands a higher level of polish than what we currently have. If this game was pay once or FTP, people might be more inclined to show some patience. As it stands, a lot of people are weighing up that 8.99, due out of their banks in a week or two, against the quality we are presented with.

While all that may be true about engine optimisation, you don't know jack about how to keep customers happy.

That said, them throwing in the towel on something that should be a standard in this day and age, that coincidentally a standard in the product of your main competitor, would give me a significant level of apprehension about the future of this game as it demonstrates a corner-cutting attitude, either in the present as a consequence of mismanagement, or in the past, as a consequence of poor design choices.

Let's hope it doesn't come to that! Positive mental attitude!

a million times this, well written post. with the whole medium becoming the new high I just take a step back and wonder about the future i have with TOR in the long run.

It bugs me huge that i'm getting into some cool looking armor on my Guardian and its just a muggy mess. It seems especially like my leg armor is low res while the rest of me is medium. Seems alot more noticable as you crest 30.

^^^ I agree. Im level 43 and am already bored of this game. I was curious to see how my character's class quest ended but then I just watched it on youtube...it was an ok ending. As of now not sure if I want to cancel since I hate PvP and it's nearly impossible to get a good Flashpoint group (why cant we insta-que for FP's like we can with PvP???)...all my crafting skills are maxed out and its not like i had to do any work anyway except click the left mouse button a few times. If anything, I would reroll a different class just to rock these high res graphics...my system can most def run it since I can run BF3 on max settings with 60-70FPS. I blame EA, I hate their choke hold on the game industry since it hinders competition, it's too bad EA rushed this game when it wasnt ready. I've seen hundreds of bugs which have impacted game play. If anything i'll cancel and come back in 6 months if the game is fixed. Cant justify the 15$ a month otherwise, im better off bringing Netflix back for that price.

So if people have a different opinion than you, they make you sick. What does that make you exactly.

He's not the only one that wouldn't be missed.
Seconded!
