Sometimes it's hard to tell what the overall opinion is of the game. Here on the official boards, I think it's pretty clear: people aren't too terribly happy... ever.

I really hope that the underlying cause of this unhappiness is just because people want to see the game be around for a long time and succeed in the end. I'm not delusional in this thinking, am I? Everyone that's here right now and is able to post has paid for the game and has an active sub (trials aside). Please don't tell me people pay money just to see a game fail and go away forever.

Maybe not all but surely most. Consider mine a vote for long term game success.

Wanting succes, Yes.
How to achieve that success....No.

There is also a few rare jems that feel that some other game is "better" and thus should have more subs. So they will bash this in hopes of becoming right down the road.

I think most people here want to see the game succeed. However, it seems that everything turns into factional warfare with both sides getting more and more entrenched. Pretty common, unfortunately, for forums of this type.

Nevertheless, over all, the peeps with a personal axe to grind have left. What we have now is a mix of satisfied players and dissatisfied players, with an occasional troll that stirs things up.

Even with all of its shortcomings, I really enjoy this game. I do hope it succeeds and that I have reason to play it for years to come.

I only want to see it succeed if the lead developer contacts me personally, and agrees that I can play a pink furred Ewok wearing Revan's pajamas, hood down, wielding a pair of white and purple striped light sabres, for free plus unlimited cartel coins. Then again, if he agrees, I'll have to assume I could have asked for even more... so still no.

I'd say there are probably a good deal of people who had very high expectations that were not met, and as a result resigned themselves to only calling out the worst possible scenarios so that they will either be proven wrong and be inwardly happy or else be right and say "I told you so!"

Yes I want the game to be successful. Very much so.
I just hope that free2play will be:
"how can we make the best damn game with what we have and make money doing so"
instead of
"how can we milk our customers in the fastest way possible"

As long as they create actual content with the cash they get,
instead of CC store stuff while arguing that the stuff is technically "content",
I wish them nothing but the highest success.
So far, I have nothing to complain, but hey, we haven't even started yet....

What if they gave you Candy Cane colored light sabers instead?

Obviously the vast majority of us do.

What we tend to bicker about most is how to turn the game around from losing ~2 million subs, into gaining subs. We tend to be a passionate bunch and believe we're right most of the time. Don't misread passion as dislike. Some people prefer to coddle Bioware and praise them for showing up to work, others, myself included, tend to be more insistent on what I feel needs to be a priority.

But overall...you're safe to assume we all want the game to be around for a long time.
