Signed times million.

The way I see it, there are 3 draws to a MMO ( any MMO )

1. Brand name: Good for attracting people, next to useless for keeping people on it's own.

2. Regular content which almost every single MMO game has ( grinding, raiding, PvP, endgame etc. )
Here, SWTOR is sadly average or below average. Yes, I understand it is because it is still relatvely young game and has a lot of place and time for growth, but the problem is there, for whatever reason.

3. Something unique, which differs it from other MMOs.
And for SWTOR, that something are class stories/companion sidestories. And here, SWTOR is lightyears ahead of any other MMO and the main thing which attracted and kept many people here.

And now, they are killing it, apparently.

I had a taste of Non-class story content ( Ilium ) and it was so boring I barely finished it once and never tried it again despite having 4 L50 characters.

Without the only great thing that differs this game from any other, what is the point? If all I was interested in was what every other MMO offers, then I would go play some other MMO that does it better.

Please, don't kill Class stories. They are the lifeblood of SWTOR.

See, the thing that bothers me about Ilum isn't so much that it's boring. It's that it wraps up its story arc with two flashpoints, both of which are possible to solo, but not until you significantly outgear them. With stuff like the rakghoul outbreak, it's entirely based around them.

I am not a huge fan of quests'n'cutscenes story content delivered to me in a form that requires grouping with other people. How I go about engaging with said content is immediately implausible by extension of there being other people around. If the emphasis on more general story content as opposed to class specific ones leads us down that road as I'm suspicious that it will, I can't say I'll be hugely happy.

SIGNED!!! I'm new to the game and one of the... if not THE major draw to the game was the story for each class. It adds replay value and a reason to level other classes that I would normally not touch.

Taking the easy route out and making a single story that all classes have from 50-55 is not going to make people happy. SWTOR should improve things it is lacking in, but should keep its strengths strong.

Devs, PLEASE add a Chapter 4 to each class story!!!

The unique stories and the fact that it actually matters what character I choose to play is why I'm here.

Without that I'm afraid I'll finish my alts and go looking for something else to play.

I don't mind if it's basically the same story as long as my different classes get their own way of dealing with it and different perspectives and roles in what takes place. Makeb 14 times over with only two variations is bad enough, if that's all I'll have to look forward to beyond Makeb, I'm not staying.
