Yep I love this game it's great. I hear a lot of people complaining, but I don't care because this game is right for me. I grew up loving Bioware titles (Baldur's Gate 2, Kotor) and with SWTOR it keeps getting better.

There's always going to be the haters and whingers who, like spoiled children, start crying when you take their toy away. It's been funny reading over all the posts of people wanting some developer to be sacked, threatening to cancel their subscriptions, saying the game is underpopulated, etc etc. That has been my morning's entertainment while servers are down, gave me a lot of laughs :P

And did anyone else smile when they first got 'Sprint' and it looked like the Kung-Fu sprint from Jade Empire? ;-)

I loved that!

Whining, whinging and the trolling of elitist gamers puts off new players and decreases the enjoyment of a game, far more than any bugs that Bioware are currently wrestling with. So I want to do something different. I want to talk about why I (as a gamer and casual MMo'er) LOVE Star Wars: The Old Republic.

I encourage you to do the same! If you love SwTor, tell me why!!!

As a huge fan of their previous releases; Mass Effect, Jade Empire & KOTOR, I knew I was going to have to buy the game and give the subscription a good old try. I levelled my main (and my first character) as a Sith Inquisitor (DPS Sorcerer.) He is now lvl50, and I still have that same attatchment.

THE STORY...
... was awesome. I was captivated and inspired. It felt personal, and I came to have a real sense of attatchment to my character. In previous mmo experiences, I felt very archetypical and less individual than I have in this game. And that gave me a huge sense of immersion in the world.

THE PVP...
... is adrenalised chaos. I love the fast-paced, aggressive, chess-like fights that is getting improved all the time. I just got nerfed with the Wrath/Chain lightning combo, but to be honest I can understand why. It hasn't, however, changed my pvp experience at all. It is still the same intense, heart-pounding experience I have come to enjoy. The sheer intensity of the warzones vs republic or your own imperial players, is as mental and chaotic as always.

- Hutt Ball, is an incredible inventive way to promote co-ordination and tactics in a pvp team. It's just plain FUN. None of the stats matter to me in Hutt Ball. I simply do not care who kills who (Unless it is an inventive use of the obstacles) and frankly, prefer to win as a team, whilst enjoying myself in the chaos. Getting close to the line, almost dying and then scoring = Big smile.

MY GUILD...
... we have a very active pvp guild. I love my guild! They are funny, entertaining, ridiculous and well-humoured. They rarely nerd-rage and are very good players with a chilled-out attitude. AWESOME.

THE PROSPECTS...
... are ENDLESS! It's only been four months, guys. Seriously. Yes there are bugs, and some features are still missing. But if you wanted a mmo that was 10 years perfected, you would have had to have waited 20 years for it's release!

- LFG selector, with raids, FPs and ops all selectable it will all make pve a whole lot easier!

THE WORLD...
... of Star Wars is incredible. While I can still strike up a lightsaber and fight with it, explore the worlds on a speeder, and experience the intricacies of the story as it progresses, I will always enjoy this game!

So the bottom line is, I am happy with the game. Always there are tweaks that need to be made, but that is true with EVERY game that has ever - or will be - created. Nothing is perfect, unless you get out what you want from a game.

FUN.
EXPERIENCES.
FRIENDS.

God bless you, SwTor. You are my new best friend.
I'm with you all the way ..

Something should seriously be done to stop the QQ'ers around here . I rarely come to the forums anymore just o avoid them. Then I log into TOR and enjoy every moment of it.

The UI got to much for me so in frustration over it I unsubbed and basically did not touch the game for about a month until the 1.2 went on test. I tried it and resubbed right away.
Been playing on PTS until now and it feels good to be going back to the live servers again

This game is FOUR months old FOUR. Some crying wow babies around here really need to either go back to their silly little game or start acting like grownups and understand that fixing these things are not something you do over night.

For me the game is now as it should have been at release and I'm going to get into it again.

I just wish we could talk about all the cool stuff they have done in this patch instead of going.

"buhuuu they gave is a free month , they SUCK" ( whats that even about ffs )

"buhuu now they give us a free day as well , they suck" ( what can you say to that )

I'm TIRED of all the BUHUUUUUU Meme's trying to sound like they should be running the game industry.

Bioware you are doing a great job .. PLEASE do not get intimidated by the morons that come around here ( probably payed QQ proffesionals from other MMO's ) ( yes that exists )

Go TOR go .

After years of playing MMOs, starting with Ultima Online back in the '90s, I've come to realize that no one game can be perfect. What I consider fun and engaging is another persons nightmare. Sure, there are things that I wish TOR had done (Nautolans and Wookiees, more appearance options, more body styles, more more MORE!), but all in all, this is a STAR WARS game.

Go ahead and call me a fanboi, cuz that's my shoe size, bub. I grew up on the original trilogy. It's also a BioWare game, and they did themselves justice. I remember saying to a lot of my friends that I'd be cool with them making KOTOR an MMO. Just straight up, slap it on a server so I can play with my friends. Well, I got one better, and I'm pleased as punch.

Like I said, I've been playing MMO's for fifteen years (I'm friggin' OLD!), and I've only ever reached max level in two games: City of Heroes, and SW:TOR. Seriously, I'm a terrible altaholic. Ultima, EQ 1 and 2, CoH, WoW, LOTRO, DDO, SWG, DAoC, WAR, dozens of terrible f2p's I can't be bothered to remember...and I've only had the drive to cap out in two games?

I love the stories. I love the hum of a lightsaber. Do I want more? Heck yeah. Do I think BioWare's gonna give me more? Heck yeah. Maybe not everything I want, but at the end of the day, I'm content with what I've got.

Love is a strong word. It is ok. I really like the warzones though. I have to say they are well done (although I'm not crazy about the new one), and without them I certainly would have stopped playing by now.
