Okay.. I am too weak willed to resist this:

Just to voice the other side in it's own thread I will say it:

I played the game for 2,5 hours after gym last night, played a level 50 Flashpoint and enjoyed myself!
I did something similar for the last few weeks every free night I had time. This means an average of 4-5 nights a week, and extra time on the weekends.
I enjoy playing with my girlfriend and my guildmates.

I realise the game has many bugs and shortcomings, but love the game and the way it allows me to spend my precious free-time nontheless.

I expect to eventually become bored with this game, as I have with so many others in the past. But if it even manages to keep me occupied for 10% of the time WoW did, I will be a very satisfied buyer.

And once I quit, the only people I will announce it to will be my guildies, as they deserve to know when and why I stopped playing this game.

I am the 90% of silent gamers who feel no need to blurt out their love or hate for this game. I do not think this game is the second coming of the Messiah, or that it is a horrible game not even worth the MMO title. I enjoy it for all it is to me: A lovely passtime to spend my free time on.

If that makes me a 'lol you suck casual', than the joke is on you. Because to me, and many others of the silent majority, this game is just that: A Game. Nothing more, and nothing less.

Peace out.

Truth juice, not from concentrate. With some vitamin "C" for CORRECT!


I'm 30 now, started playing MMOs when I was about 16. Just have to realize that not every game can be better than the last, and that I might possibly be growing out of it. Still, SWTOR suits my current needs - and for the most part, better than any other MMO available - so I will continue to sub.
Haters gonna Hate.. the rest of us are too busy playing SWTOR to post on the forums when we're not at work.

I like the game.

WoW is a rush to end game and hardcore raiding. It appeals to people who like that.

I got into MMORPG's for the RPG. I do enjoy raiding and take raiding seriously but the story is keeping me here.

I have 2 level 50's. I am currently levelling a third. I play my main quite a lot and enjoy playing it.

I take levelling slowly. I listen to all the dialogue.. not just class quest and then I make my choice based on the character I am aiming to create. I take it easy and don't feel the need to rush rush go go go I had with wow.

They are different games.. comparing them is like apple and oranges.. they both have different priorities and goals in the content they deliver and are aimed at differring market segments.

Right now i'm just viewing this game as 8 KOTOR's, except without really choosing the fate of the galaxy at the end. Hopefully they have the 50 game fixed by the time i'm done with the 8th.

I quit WoW for the SWTOR forums last March :P. Yes, I got a LOT more entertainment from this haven of scum and villainy than I did from hitting level 85 within 46 hours and then being fully geared in endgame "purps" less than 12 total hours of play time later.

I will have had hundreds of hours of play time in this game before even hitting 50 on a single character.

Except where I am playing same faction and do the planet/side quests that I have seen before, I don't skip the cut scenes and such. I explore. I play the market. I craft (without grinding).

It's a pleasant, slow journey; one that BioWare promised, and delivered on.

If I wanted to power through leveling just to jump on a gear treadmill and do the same tired content over and over, week after week... why would I leave WoW?

Sure, I may quit the game after I get everything to level cap... a year or so from now.. but until then, it's excellent entertainment for me while I am up at work.

My wife bought me a computer (since I sold mine after we got married to pay for unforeseen bills) and this game as an "I love you and thank you" gift. Best wife EVER.

There is nothing in WoW, or any other MMO I have played, that could hold my attention NEAR to this level.

If I ever feel this game "LOL THIS SUXZORZ DON'T BUYZ ITZ DAWG", I'll just quit. It would be childish and moronic for me to continue posting in a forum meant for a game I didn't like... right?
I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts.

I still have 3 months subscriptions in WOW before I picked up this game.
After I got the game, I seldom step foot into WOW again except 1 or 2 times (While swtor is in maintenance) just to see if there any guildies or friends to chit chat.
Before Swtor, all I do in WOW is just to complete LFR for my 5 toons and cap VP for the week, occasionally run DS normal with guildies. After I got Swtor, I am enjoying the game and never look back to do my usual stuff in WOW again.
Sure Swtor has its bugs but so far it not too critical to keep me out of the game. I am sure the game will just get better over time as it is barely 2 months since launch.
