Take another look at Teladis' sig pic man, I think it may very much have been meant to be WoW with lightsabers.

Hard to argue with hard evidence.

Dear OP, I would sign your (whole) message immediately. I agree with it 100%. I wouldn't even wonder if we would be in the same guild after what you wrote about your's (although it is unlikely).

The only difference I would add is: You get 60 day-gametime cards for 13 Euros these days on Ebay.de. I figured that this is so little money per month, I will continue to buy them, just to stay a sub. Somehow, I dislike the idea of getting downgraded to prefered.

So if EA's Battlefront and open world SW multiplayer game come out, guess what will happen to TORs population..
Thats exactly the reason why this game is still alive, because of the star wars logo and lightsabers. Star wars is such a huge ip and ea have taken advantage of it

The game is still alive because it's still a fun and enjoyable game.

Funny thing you should say that because some of the classes in this game have the exact same skills as those in WoW.

And people weren't expecting it to be a WoW clone (which it is imo) and people thought it would be a WoW killer...how wrong they were.

That's not really a valid reason as to why it's still alive. "fun and enjoyable" that's just an opinion.

Didnt WoW report losing about 4 million subs recently? SWTOR had nothing to do with that, I'm sure, and a WoW killer it is not, but it's still a good game.

The fact is, this game was made for the casual player who likes story content. There's nothing hardcore about this game.
And on that note, I'd also like to mention that there is nothing "hardcore" about playing video games 23 hours a day. Do you get up and eat glass for breakfast? Are you a lumberjack? NO. You are not hardcore. There is nothing hardcore about your lifestyle. You play a video game too much.

If someone, who can't even get the expansion numbers right, wants to quit because this game isn't "hardcore" enough, good riddance.

Well, I came for the KotOR content and stayed because the game is fun and enjoyable for me. The fact that it was Star Wars never really made a difference for me personally.

IMO Bioware did exactly the same thing as WoW did, when it went live first.

They copied the good stuff from previous MMOs and added some new stuff, that others did not have before (okay, Wow did hardly do that last part, they mostly just copied other MMOs, but that is not the topic).

Bioware was designing a Themepark MMO. That was known from the start. It was known from the start that it would be class and level based and it would have skill trees. And to be honest, I do not care for a skill comparison with WoW. I play a game for the whole package and for the ammount of fun I get from playing it, and in that case SWTOR is lightyears ahead of WoW FOR ME. Millions of players who play WoW and not SWTOR see it different, but that does not matter, as it is okay to have different opinions.

The OP got the opinion, that SWTOR did not deliver enough stuff within 2 years to make him pay for another GTC... that is his personal opinion and it is okay.

It is my opinion, that SWTOR is evolving well enough for me to keep my subscription and that is okay as well.
