Yes Lucas arts and SOE really screwed up SWG but it could have been saved...... Will BW be able to save this game from the same fate as SWG???
I believe you have this point backwards. I bought SWG when they gave you the three games in one package. When I played SWG, when you went to a planet, and selected the map, the planet was a square piece of land that, when you got to the end, you just appeared back at the other side of the map. TOR has a MUCH larger play area. TOR at least makes me feel like I'm running through an entire planet, with how big it is.

I thought that Lucas Arts gave SOE all the freedom they wanted. I remember reading an article that said Lucas Arts and George gave them free reign withtin some constricts, then those were removed because starwars fans wanted to roll Jedi.

I did MUCH more enjoy SWG's Space Missions more than I enjoy TOR's. I was REALLY hoping for a new Tie Fighter, knowing how much BioWare's staff (Some of them anyway) are avid fans of flight. I assume they will make a Jump to Light Speed type expantion, and we can have the choice of making our ship look the way we want.

But anyway, I think it's a good idea to give out free weekend passes. I enjoy Star Wars, I love Star Wars, got some tattoo's to show that love. I invited my wife to play the 7 day free trial, but because we live in South Korea (no love for us out here from ToR) it's rather difficult to get her a copy.

That takes like an hour....

People are gonna hate this game more after such a weak trial....

I played the trial, and within a day I had purchased it on Amazon.co.uk (seriously EA? 60 still on Origin, really?) for 20.

I am now in my free month after the 7 day recruit a friend trial, which by the way takes you to 15, not 10, and you can go through the first 2 planets, which was easily a good 10-15 hours gameplay. Crafting goes up to 39, but any points you gain over that are stored until you apply a retail code, and then your craft pops up to the level it would have been without the cap. You cannot chat in all general channels, only being able to talk in Guild Chat, in response to whispers, or whispering people who have you on their friends list, and you can join, but not speak in the custom chat channels. You can also not use the Auction House. I also spent a tonne of time in Warzones and tried out the Esseles too.

The trial was good enough to pull me in, and im a cynical git at the best of times, so quit your whining, it's bringing in droves of new players. I know just from my word of mouth, I have got 23 other people all checking out the trial too, and of those, 7 have already purchased.

This forum has been filled with doomsaying about population, and now that they are trying to really boost it up, it's filled with more doomsaying about them giving out a free trial?

You people are concerning.

I am enjoying it a tonne, having just now unlocked my Legacy surname, clearing chapter 1 of the Jedi Knight storyline, and haven't had a moment yet where I have been bored.

The issue is people are expecting so much more from a game that is only been out for 4 months.

When world of warcraft came out it did awful and anyone who played was disliked for the longest time. It also was very small and the servers we're small. The issue is people are looking for a perfect of game with millions of dollars invested, but won't put the time in the game to show them that people like their game. That's the issues with people and MMO's they don't want to put the time in to watch a game grow. Its the reason SWTOR isn't putting more money in on their servers to make them stronger and better so their would be less lag and more people could join the servers. You have to respect them for what they did and give them time and enjoy the game for what it is. The game itself is fantastic and i have gotten over 30 people to start playing that are my friends and 10x more by upselling it at work and everyone i told, tells me they love the game.

I did work with Blizzard Entertainment with diablo 2 and world of warcraft and know most of the developers personally. The reason they are doing so well is because they don't care about getting everyone to like there game right away, they are patient and watch the game grow and offer so much more after they see people are interested. That is why there are 3 expansions and 2 more on the way. That is why 12 Years later diablo 3 is coming out and 10 years later starcraft 2 came out and with an expansion on it way, because they don't listen to people who complain about the game because of money and who else is playing and stupid trials and weekend passes. They listen to the people who play the game and put the time in the game to tell the developers what's needs to be fixed and what could make the game better.

Just give the game and chance, and let it grow because I do like playing it and I see so much potential in the future for this game to grow if people just enjoy it for what it is. The game did something many people have been waiting 3+ years for when they first announced the idea to the public and they did it just fine. The game really shows how far gaming has come over the years and how in depth a game can be.

WoW did well because it offered a better product then what was out there.

Right now in SW:ToR, I do like the single player better then WoW. However, You burn threw that quick and doing the same planets over and over on alts is not worth it for everyone.

Once your done with "ZOMG, it's starwars" and the story. You are left with a game that is really short on content when compared to other games that play very much the same as this one.

which sort of defeats the purpose... dont really see any of core game stuff till 10-20... no advanced class, cant get on the fleet ect ect ect... i'd say should be 1-20 experience or at least 12-15
