2 Years have passed sind SWTOR was released. Doing a summary shows what we get in this period:

- 1 new planet, with a little basic q line, and some mini qs for both factions.
- 1 new warzone and arenas in pvp
- some cm stuff fur rp players emotes and dye modules
- 2 returning events (gree/bounty) and 2 one-time events (raks n chevin)
- a ****load of new boring meaningless daily quest hubs
- 5 New Ops (i dont considers goldenfury as an extra op...)

well in most other mmos u get this amount of content in less than a year...

ok gsf is out, but i and most of my guild mates dislike gsf. its slow, boring, 2 maps, no joysticks to much for arcade fun, far to less for a real simulator. AND i play a mmo, i wanna play my char(s), if i wanna do some flight simulation stuff i play world of warplanes...
gsf is a minigame for me, something extra....like fishing in wow...but u hype it like it is real content ?
for a mmo ?

the problem is, i luv this game, really...its star wars, its lightsabres....its fun but its getting more and more boring. if u do hardcore raids u have nothing else to do. doing dailys for basic or elite comms `why ? as hc raidplayer u just need ultimate comms.
but the only chance to farm them is in operations and some in hc fps. there is no chance to farm them at the morning or in the late night or at least some in solo play.
so i log in do hc raids with my guild and log of.
leveling an alt ? i got enuf of them, and im not interested in doing more of them on the old planets...even with double exp, its boring.
and what if they lvl 55 ? again i need hc raids to improve their gear...

there is no chance to improved ur char without ulti comms....
so what to do ? i dislike gsf, i dont really like pvp, crafting is meaningless as hell...(78 gear still not craftable ??)

now a big amout of my guildmates went inactive, so doing hc raids is getting harder and harder...i dont think u will bring fast new pve content, ur still hyping gsf. so my time seems to be over. i wanna play this game and not wait 2-4 hours a day wating for an operation group.... raidfinding tool stil not provide DF and DP, still no 16 mode ops...not even golden fury...

sorry for my english, germn poster here, btw we are no 2nd class customers. we wanna talk to some1 yellow too, we pay the same subs, we buy the same ccs.

i wont buy another gametime card, i dont think there will be new content soon, and i dont mean nightmare mode for dp and df, only 5% of all pve players will play them. i mean real content for pve, chances to improve ur char. options to spend time with meaningfull things, no 1 needs elite or basic comms besides making money.

WoW had 10 new raids in the recent expansion. I wonder where all that $250 million budget went towards

The fact is, this game was made for the casual player who likes story content. There's nothing hardcore about this game.

Ya, that list does look bad. As someone who just came back near the release time. *Quit like 2-3 months after release* I thought this long would be enough for them to get things right.


If what you are saying is true, That really blows that is all that has got added during that time.



I will tell them what I told them during testing of this game.


LFG is needed, they argue about that. *and looks like I was right they added it. Go figure*

Crafting needs to be a huge focus on end game, Lots of former SWG players who enjoyed a very good crafting system. Focus some on the crafting and you will keep some players. Not sure if they did or not.

End game matters, You can have a amazing story that is fine, but once people get to end game, they need more to do. Dailies is a nice staple to keep people busy, but it is not end game, Even wow has learned a lesson about that, and is as we speak changing up how they do things.



I'm not sure why they have not focus on adding the story, maybe it is just too hard? I mean voice acting, tons of classes, each with his or her own story. That in itself might be the problem?


For a MMO to live, it needs steady and GOOD content updates, at a nice speed, If the story is the selling point of this game, why has the story not been touch for so long?



Well like I said in another thread, I'm here to give it another chance, and if it fails, I won't be back. EQ landmark and Next is around the corner.



This all could have been avoided, this game could have been top dog, if you would have just listen to us testers. We warned you, we told you this would happen, and you ignored and told us we are were wrong. That your vision of a mmo is all about story. That LFG took away the social part of a mmo. This is what happens when you don't listen to the players.

and I just saw the picture in my sig, I forgot I had...man that reminds me of how upset I really was at them. lol

it is shocking how many people list exactly these reasons, star wars and lightsabers.
So if EA's Battlefront and open world SW multiplayer game come out, guess what will happen to TORs population..

I like KOTOR world, and I like the style this game is.


But there has not been much story update for so long, that I am getting sad.


The fact that this starting to feel like the last KOTOR we will ever have is also sad.

There doesn't need to be anything hardcore about this game. Star Wars was never about being "hardcore". It was about being fun and entertaining with a storyline that everyone could get behind. This game was never meant to be WoW with lightsabers. It was meant to be something more, and, imo, it is.
