Where is the MMO?

It seems like Bioware made the greatest game ever, but forgot the MMO part. Everything in the game with the exception of what... 2 raids? Is geared towards no more than 4 people, and that's pushing it considering most of the content doesn't even need 4 people.

they also forgot the "GAME" part.. cus standing semi'afk in fleet waiting for a queue to pop is roughly equivalent to what i do at my bank or supermarket.

A ton of heroic quests

I see. So having 5-8 man groups makes it officially a MMO then?

Oh, who cares about the MMO part.

*gets pelted with rancid tomatoes by enraged MMO fans*

But seriously, the game has just launched, jeez.

There's more to it than that, obviously, but anyone who thinks this game isn't an MMO obviously doesn't know what an MMO is. He's probably trying to compare it to some other game feature-for-feature. That'll tell you it's not that other game, but it doesn't say squat about whether this is an MMO or not.

It definitely is, by the way. It's really not arguable. It fits all of the criteria for being an MMO. I'm guessing the OP just has a very limited view of what makes an MMO, and based on that... well, ignorance, for lack of a better word, he's decided it's something else.

He's wrong, though.

Multiplayer game does not have 256 simultaneous players at once in a single instanced area fighting against each other towards a goal, ala MAG
Not multiplayer?

Hey folks,

We do have a thread already discussing end game content concerns here:
http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=269632

Feel free to continue discussing this in that thread as we will be closing this one to keep things a bit more consolidated. Thanks!
