More than that was promised but I won't go into that again.

I had no interest in another fantasy MMO but I have to agree that Guild Wars 2 seems to do things right.

Tythus, please stop talking out of your rear end.
Earth does NOT have a 24 hour day/night cycle. Hours are a base 60 formula created by an ancient tribe (mayan or aztec if memory serves) that was adopted by the romans, and thus has become the foundation of modern society. It is NOT a scientific method of measurement, which is why genuine scientists, when preparing reports and making notes will list the amount in seconds, a standardised metric unit of measuring time.

I am in full support of what the OP says. This game is BEHIND in what almost every other good mmo is doing, in virtually every way.
Please, do NOT mention world of warcraft as a good game. Popular =/= good. Proof? Smoking. Bad. Really bad. Really popular.

The PVP system, while slightly innovative with the huttball minigame, is still subpar compared to even the likes of WoW.

The guild/craft/immersion/living world is far behind SWG, which is still alive on private servers, by the way.

Using WoW as a base for combat mechanics was a decent idea, because the mechanics system is well established, as are the formulas.

The dialogue system is behind the times when compared to the likes of Dragon age, Mass Effect 1/2/3, but better then most other mmos. The lack of option to change own appearance, if at least tattoos, hair, and make up is annoying. Sure, it is VERY trivial, but it is also VERY simple to implement.

The game needed more programming time. People need to realise that there is NO reason for this game to be as behind as it is. Not dev time, nothing. They have been working on it for 6 years, and an article that the client promoted last month/early this month said, basically: 6 years dev time, 200 million dollar price tag, 600 developers.

I doubt the last part, was probably a typo and they meant 60. This number did include writers, by the way.

The removal of same sex flirts and marriages was also a pathetic decision. Simply make it an option in game menu to either enable or disable same sex, for those backwards religious people that can not tolerate the idea even though it is a very natural occurance, with over 1200 documented subsentient species and 3 sentient species having same sex relations (3 sentient? Human, other primates, dolphins and their kin)


The game has A LOT of potential, but it does feel like they didnt actually try. They took WoW, cloned it, created some new fancy art and occassionally well written stories, and thats it. No actual trying to push the envelope. No giving next gen high res graphical options for those who could handle it (the art features already exist. That is how they make low res look better. By using the normal maps of extreme high res stuff)

I, for one, will not be sticking around if, come march when they supposedly release the next major content pack, the game is not improved. I have 60 days free, 1 month is down. Lets hope


I was stupid, and supported a company that promised lots, like Cryptic, for 2 years. I will not do it with bioware.



I am probably the biggest bioware fan boy you will meet, but let's face it. The bioware management does not have the balls to make a truely amazing mmo.

Great ideas. I agree that any MMO coming out in 2011 should have included more of these features. I couldn't believe how limited the character customization was, but maybe that's because I was spoiled by Champions. Still, only 4 body types? Really?

Most of the things in your list have been implemented previously in other games so they should have been included with SWTOR. Why go backwards when releasing a new game in 2011? Even minecraft has day and night. Sheesh.

I want every feature you put up there! But I think that it will take Bioware at least a year to make all these features available in SWTOR. I want all of em' especially more character customization!
