I myself am playing both games, I know it's crazy but I think it's ok to enjoy more than one game at a time
I came from WoW, had many hardcore raider friends on WoW too, but I and my friends will never be going back to WoW. SWTOR is by far the better choice.

I think they're both worth the subscription, though I can only do 1 at a time. And I like this a little better.
so which did you decide to invest your money on? just curious.

left wow ages ago. went to rift, which I still sub to. Was going to leave swtor as its disappointing, but some RL friends convinced me to re-roll with them on a higher pop server, so trying another month. not sure I'll stick it but will have to see.

Would not go back to wow, nothing new there worth it yet, may drop in for MoP just to check it out, not sure yet.
Likely to end up back on RIFT until GW2 comes out and we see if it lives up to its promise.

i left wow because i was bored of it and the incoming panda epidemic...sigh

i came to swtor with expectations and was not really let down by it but i was disapointed at the lack of space combat or any space based game...don't even bother with that on rails guff.

not going back to wow as frankly it's far to mind numbing and swtor isn't really getting me interested.

for me i think they either better up their game by a lot or this will be the last mmo i ever look at, they are all just disapointing these days.

I actually debated on checking out Rift? Is the leveling process a big grind or anything interesting as you go? max lvl 50?

I never stopped playing WoW, but about 10 of us tried this game.. we all continue to play WoW, but so far 1 has continued their subscription in SW:TOR. I would say that we are the playerbase. We are the community. We are the consensus. We are the everyman.. if that makes sense. We're a successful WoW guild, and like I said about 10 of us wanted to try it.. it didn't really have a lasting impact.

No, and no.

I quit WoW long before SWTOR launched. I had no interest in going back before, and I still have none. But SWTOR is not the only game I play, or even the only MMO, and I don't expect that to change, either.

no more wow , i resubbed to wow like 4 months before this game launched just to get my guild mates to come over here w/ me . and i'll be playing this game for the next 3-6 months to see if all goes well. i have high hopes for swtor , but i know it can easily make the worst decisions imaginable over these next few month's , and send me back to minecraft ...

depends. It can be a big grindy if you just quest(no more than other MMOs though). But there are zone invasions going off which breaks it up and low level pvp is probably the best in any current MMO in my opinion. Bit ofa gear fest at max level, but very good at low levels. There are exploration and puzzel rewards in zones, and they are really exploring the alternative progression paths other than raiding (which is there still and ranges from eaasy pick clearable dailr raids, to omg this is impossible hardcore raids)

Zone stories are good and varied and you can swap things about with up to 5 "specs" and lots of flexibility.

They do lots of trial weekends so check it out see if its for you. Pop dropped when swtor came out, inevitably, but has been rising back againt steadly in recent weeks.
