How long til your sub runs out? My friend and I are looking for a good dps and a tank to round out a WZ group. You wouldn't happen to have a pub version of your sin would you? Look up either Obv'ious or Contrux. We play most nights after 8pm EST on POT5.

We're just two lonely commandos - looking to find some decent players to make our remaining playtime more fun. I can only run my Operative healer so many times before I get bored - oh yay...1 million heals and we still lost because of stupids and bads... My sorc, my sniper, my slinger, my operative, all 55's, all getting boring...I'm running the commando for a change of pace to extend the game a bit for me.

We're both jumping ship in a few months - possibly to EQ Next, possibly to Repopulation.

But while we're here...we gonna blow some **** up. And the purely pug circuit is getting tiresome...

why are you here then? if you are really done with the game and unsubbed, then just move on. if you don't like the game then stop playing, go play a game you do like instead of hanging around whinning on these forums like you are some kind of victim.
can't wait for this game to come out!

Well I'd imagine the majority of the dedicated player base from the beginning has gone.

Such is the way of business though. Like they were doing here, all you have to do is milk the customer dry and then advertise shiny new aspects to draw in more people. Milk those customers dry too, then repeat the cycle until you have used up all the resources in the area.

I'd still disagree that the game functions like this as a whole, despite the CM market being so apparent in game. But I would whole heartedly agree that the PvP aspect follows that above ideal to the letter: milk the dedicated, and when they get fed up with the crap, find new customers instead of doing the right improvements.

Considering there were 2+ million subscribers at launch, and now there is about 25% of that remaining, yea Id say the majority of players have left the game.

There's no chance there are 25% left Cash. Last year, that may have been the case...but no chance today.
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

The forums are more fun than the actual game so who wouldn't stick around lol

I was over-estimating on purpose. Even if it was 25%, that is 1.5 million people that deemed swtor not worth the sub.
