swtor is not a pvp game, so comparing it to gw2 is not fair. also swtor is on the ropes no matter how big a fan boy you are. merges 6 months in and none of the original staff left says volumes in comparison to any other mmo launched in the last 10 years. bioware is no longer hiding that there are major issues with the game and its future. 400,000 subscriptions cancelled during a two month stretch and 150,000 last month means people are getting fired in austin this month. Its only a matter of time until swtor goes free to play and subscription numbers balance out and it becomes a niche game. 5+ years from now there will be no other way of describing swtor other than a failure. the money made will not change the amount of money that could have been made. thats just the facts.

OP does have a point, the amount of CC in this game is overkill.
server: Harbringer
Characters: Olivia Munn / Rashida Jones / Alicia Keys / Denzel Washington

This is incorrect. GW2 warzones don't require it, but the real PvP in GW2 is open world, and it definitely requires it. Well, it requires it if you want to win lol. SWTOR PvP is a sad joke, 8 vs. 8 in the same wz's over and over and over again.
Edited because the devs appear to have fixed at least 80% of the crap that was pissing me off.

Funny how CC in GW is no different in SWTOR.. Actually, being chain CC'ied in that game is a lot worse, since one 3 sec stun is more then enough time to take half your opponents HP.

Also... how the hell can you complain about Marauder when GW2 Warriors have Ravage, on 10 sec cooldown, that hits like 3x as hard..

GW2 is a good game but the points you brought up are bad... I think GW2 CC is even worse then SWTOR atm, lol.


If anyone thinks otherwise, go ahead and do a 5v5 tournament and play against somewhat decent opposition... The game is nothing but a stun fest when people are focusing targets.. and it ain't no different then SWTOR.

You can run, but you'll only die tired.

I don't know about most of the subscribers, although I reckon a large percentage of PVPers will be playing GW2 (if the number of players who seemed to be away from SWTOR playing the GW2 beta this weekend is anything to go by).

Spent a few hours in GW2 Friday/Saturday and I was impressed. If nothing else these guys know how to choose an engine for an MMO, everything at max and my screen full of players, AOE, skill effects and god knows what else and no slowdown whatsoever. Those of us who miss DAoC (and to a lesser extent WAR) will feel right at home in RvR combat again.

Those of you who want to sit back and win because of GEAR and not SKILL are welcome to SWTOR. I hope playing the same old WZs week after week doesn't get old too quickly

No doubt a lot of us old time PVPers will drop in now and again when SWTOR inevitably becomes F2P.

Chain CC's , PVE cc's on PVP, this is not a game of skill is a game for " push all your cc's and try to burn the other player down." ah and Marauders, then you have marauders...

almost 7 months of SW and you guys seems that you didn't learn nothing from your mistakes.

Niche audiences can kill a game? Oh wait I forgot its full of elitists who bash on everything not GW <---- reason why i quit.
