A typical fight on my bountyhunter like deck :
1,1,1,1,1,2,3,1,1,1,1,1,2,3 And victory.
Against stronger enemies I start off by pressing 4, ill give you that.

I actually like building my character in TSW a lot more then I like playing it. For me thats an indicator that something is wrong tbh.
Some characters are designed awesomely (Carter and Kirsten come to mind) while others, well, not so much.
Same goes for quests. I was surprised about how many people on that zombie island where like : "Yeah, my home got overrun by zombies, my teacher ate my best friends brains but hey, I really want my RC plane back!"

Its a great game, and I have a lifetime sub at TSW, but for now, SWTOR stays my main game.

Go play it if you really want. Why do you think any of us care what game YOU play?! You're really not that important to any of us. Why would you bother coming here? I would suggest that by coming here to tell us all how awesome the game is, that you tend to like these FORUMS more than TSW. Is that the case?

Don't get me wrong, you can play one of their cookie cutter decks and it will be pretty easy. If you make your own build though, you can pick a relatively complicated set of abilities that super compliment each other and probably double your damage output. I spent like 10 hours the other night doing target dummy practice with ACT... It didn't matter, I know, but it was fun for me. I guess if you really want it to be easy mode just get thors hammer and make your off-hand elemental then every 5 attacks you can thors hammer for the win.

The min maxing of raid compositions is going to be freaking sweet too. Making sure every group has a crit buff rating, the blood lust type ability, a hit buff, etc....

It's the same thing that causes console wars, people want to feel validated for their money/time investment, so they disparage anything they see as a challenge to their choice.

Mind you, Funcom is really the big worry there. Everything about the game sounds good... 'cept Funcom.
I draw a comic. You should check it out.

No blasters, no lightsabers, no starships, no droids... no interest.

But enjoy, and have fun.

But thats like saying 'lol you went from playing Madden to NHL, noob dont you know that EA makes both those games.

I could care less who publishes or develops either of the games, i didnt leave because i dont want to support EA/BW anymore. its just that i dont want to pay for a sub if i'm not gonna use it.
I am going to correct you in the interest of keeping this free from falacies.
EA does not make both games. EA is the publisher for both games, not the developer.
EA and BW are co-developers for SW:TOR.
EA is the publisher for both SW:TOR and TSW.
Funcom is the sole developer of TSW.

In order to put it simply, imagine that games are books. Publishers take care of the marketing of the product and the developers are responsible for the content of the product.
I unsubscribed to this game and still have time remaining on it. I am hopeful - probably naive in that regard - that EA / BioWare will make this game the fruitful business venture that it *can be* and still warrant continued subscription. There are other leisure activities in the universe.
