Eh, that's subjective. I really disliked Vashjir (sp) personally.

Ofc it's subjective. Objectively however the zone is there, many people -myself included- found it refreshingly enjoyable and to top it off it's completely optional.

I'm not saying that swtor should have an underwater zone too. It would be nice but it's not exactly a necessity. But no swimmable water at all in 2012? How can they get away with this.

Swimming in games always sucked and will always suck. I am glad that BW didn't jump on that bandwagon.

There's no deep water in this game, but there are some pretty deep conversations.

lol at the people complaining about no swimming and saying "This is a basic feature. It should have it! Rawr rawr!". Admit it, you'd find the new swimmable body of water, jump in for 5 seconds, get out..and never swim again for the rest of your time spent on TOR. You just want something new to ***** about. Give it a rest lmao, and no I'm not a fanboy. Give that a rest too.

No combat log -> combat logs suck, we don't want them
No moddable ui -> addons suck, we don't want them
No swimmable water -> swimming sucks, we don't want it

I think I see a trend here.

That's kind of the thing...

I mean, swimming content sounds cool, but in reality it just means that there's no ground and mobs might be above or below you.

It just doesn't really deliver.
...they'd never come to see me in this dive, where bikers stare at cowboys, who are laughing at the hippies, who are praying they'll get out of here alive...

What amazing gameplay is added by allowing swimming?

Other games have swimming, this game has space minigames. Problem?
