Post after post of people that want to complain about SWTOR. For whatever reason.... why can't anyone realize this game is in it's infancy stages still. WoW has years of working out bugs and fixing issues, but people still want to compare.

To me this game rocks. It may have it's problems but what new software doesn't? The subtle nuances in the cut out scenes, the story lines. To me it's all pretty great. Sure there maybe issues, but like I said. This game is comparatively new in the MMO world.

You're not going to get 100% of what you want 100% of the time. You can't get it in real life and you're sure not going to get it here. Relax and enjoy this game for what it is. A chance to be a part of a awesome story. That fact that I get to walk around on my Sith Warrior like Lord Vader makes waiting on bug fixes and growing pains of the software very palatable.

This wasn't meant to be a shot at anyone making complaints but more about realizing we do have a great game. To me it's better than sitting around with 20 sided die trying to figure out if I got a saving roll or not. (no offense to table top gamers). This is great fun and great entertainment. Just relax and enjoy the ride. They'll get this stuff lined out sooner or later.

Good luck, and have fun!!!!!

Because the whole point of MMO message boards is for people to complain about the game they are playing.

At least that's the point of the general discussion form. On other forms like class, newbie help, questions, ect... you might find stuff worth reading.

But every MMO I've played including CoH, WoW, LotRO, CO, SWTOR, ect... the general discussion forms are pretty much nothing more then a place for people to whine about what they don't like in the game.

I think the forums are worse than any problems with the game. My server has it's own dedicated forum site, but unfortunately I have to look around in here for news.

A lot of people just seem to think that because they paid $15, all of a sudden their opinions are no longer childish and irrelevant. The best remedy is to spend as little time as possible on here, and just let the idiots fight with themselves.

From my personal observations with real life compulsive whiners (yes yes! they do exist!), here're the main reasons for whining:

-They're seeking attention
-It makes them feel important
-They're looking for approval
-It's a "family tradition": since their childhood they saw their parents and siblings whining all the time
-It's a stress relief technique
-Sometimes it actually leads to results (ex.: refund)

The more you watch the compulsive whiners doing their thing, the more you get that they don't realize they whine that much. It's like some kind of disease with no easy cure.

I don't mind someone who whines if she/he brings or tries to bring realistic solutions, which seems to be pretty rare.

I agree with you 100% OP. There is just so much QQ'ing going on it's unbelievable. Everyone wants instant gratification and if they don't get it, you sure are going to hear about it...and hear about it...and hear about it. I am glad that 400K people didn't return, just that much less QQ'ers. Now only if the rest would leave, I could enjoy the game in peace.
