Been playtesting since closed beta and would like to add:

successful character transfer tests
5 months of combat ability delay bugs (2 that extended through release) that got fixed;
adding a zillion servers at launch; and
noticeable server population increases since the last server consolidation (almost 4 months ago)

Why I'm still here and will continue playing:

Entertaining (& often comedic) voice animated player/questgiver interaction;
Interactive quest/plot decision trees that help shape my character stories and companion rosters;
Gearing up an evolving stable of combat-ready crafting companions - EVERY CHARACTER HAS THEM;
Microing companions with another player through level-appropriate 4 player group content;
Fun & balanced heroics & flashpoints;
Every class being able to rez others and self-heal out of combat;
Huttball (reminds me of Unreal Tournament);
Legacy perks & unlocks (just wish the Heroic Moment CD was shorter);
Orange custom gear that is fully upgradeable through level 50 HMs;
1.2's customizable UI (BW hit a home run with this one);
Groupfinder;
Warzones;
Old school tanking mechanics (gimmie 1 taunt, 1 aggro bomb, 1 stun & 1 interrupt and I'll tank Godzilla with a whiffle bat & a frisbee.)

Well met OP.

I was also here during round 1 of early access. Never dropped my sub and I don't plan to.

May the force be with you!!!!

I'm in my 11th month right now, so I'll have to wait to celebrate the year alongside my brithday the 15th next month. SWTOR was my first MMO. I hope it'll be the only one I really need in the end. Why? Because WoW doesn't have lightsabers, of course!

Check!

Been a strange ride, but a year's a year. Hopefully the new year brings the glamour back... I remember playing through Tython and part of Coruscant on my first beta weekend and loving it. Can't really beat the anticipation back then.
