Any star wars fan's wet dream. The space combat in SWG was a bit slow but my, was it not spectacular.

It's a real shame they are going for the themepark model. They should focus on catering to the star wars fans and not the WoW fans. WoW will always be the king of Themeparks, because of its very very large subscription base. Innovation is what will draw people in, not operations. Or so I believe, no doubt there are loads of people who enjoy PvE in this game and each to their own.

The problem with the Themepark model is that it doesn't expand the endgame. With every new operation, a new currency will come out, and with it you'll be able to buy gear to enter the new operation. Old tiers become trivialized. It's such a bad model. It really shoots itself in the foot. Ultimately, there will only be one important operation at any given time. That's why the themepark model doesn't expand the game.

I did a lot of PvE in WoW, and nothing beats the magic that was TBC. I joined TBC relatively late so when I was looking for a guild, I wasn't looking for a guild that was raiding tier 6, I was looking for a guild that raided tier 4 so that I could progress with them together to tier 6. That magic is gone from the MMORPG world, the magic of always progressing towards something. It's replaced by tedious grind through dungeons and flashpoints that pose no threat to your gear level.

But I can understand all this. It makes the game more accessible. But where is the fun? :/ end game should have scaled horizontally. Would have solved so many problems. But, oh well.

I always expected that a class story expansion would come a couple of years after launch. Maybe longer. All I really want from them, given the number of class story writers who've been laid off or left, is a statement that those stories are still in the works and haven't been shelved in favor of world stories that are the same for all characters as is rumored. I'm more than willing to wait in order to get stories of the same quality as the first 3 chapters, but I need to know that they're in the pipeline and being worked on actively.

Of course, the layoffs and F2P transition slowed down the update plan a bit, but so far I think they are on track again, reorganized, alive and kicking
What about month after month part then?

^ THIS.

I hate that crap sooooooo much. That is the stuff that cost subs.

If the "content" they release is of the "quality" of Patch 1.4, then I would rather them not release anything at all.

FIX. THE. GAME. FIRST.

yeah, looks like that was before the collision model was fixed and ships crashed when hitting the surface. Still looks fun though

But IŽd rather like to have this

I see you failed to understand what he was trying to say. I could be wrong, but I think he's saying don't get your hopes up. Don't expect too much. Which, ironically, is what a lot of the fanbois are accusing the sceptics of doing. "You're expecting too much, you're too entitled", etc.
