PvE in this game is the most dull PvE I've ever played in an MMO.
Sure every MMO consists of doing dungeons/raids whatever to get the best gear. Though, there's usually other things that branch off from that to kill time. This game has nothing even remotely close to end-game I've seen in other MMO's.

That leaves PvP. I'm not going to lie, I've been a fan of SWTOR PvP for a while, though it's been getting worse after each update. 2.0 recently hit and it's by far the worst PvP update I've been here for yet. TTK is stupidly low, and PvP basically runs on stuns/roots/mezz. Again, every other MMO I've played, their stuns last about 2 seconds and have a long cooldown. They are meant to be to help you at a pinch. Though for some reason the devs seem to think that we each need multiple stuns/roots and even some mezz for each and every fight.

I've been growing less and less amused by PvP and I just can't take it any longer. I think the devs forget that the PvP community make up a huge proportion of their player base, but they just don't seem to give a damn.

Been playing for many months now, majority of the time with 2 accounts subscribed. Also payed for plenty of Cartel Coins and many hours on the phone to CS. If I'm getting no enjoyment out of the game and my money (and everyone elses) doesn't seem to be doing much then I think it's time to move on.

I'll play until my subscription runs out, and hopefully by then I've found something more enjoyable to play.
Please, sort PvP out.

Anyways, rant over. Flame or whatever as you please.

Was expected, which also sadly takes any humor out of your post.

I'll probably have to edit my post to add in the part about this game also being full of the dumbest/worst players I've ever met. You're "troll" (more of an attempt to be funny) post would only help me get that point across.

You stick with SWTOR. One less bad I can avoid in other MMO's

But all joking aside, OP is right (although for the wrong reasons). Bioware, you really did manage to screw up pvp royally with 2.0.

What has outdoor exercise got to do with this game being ruined by a crap dev team?
It's not funny in the slightest. The only thing even remotely funny here is how low these "trolls" IQ are.

100% agree with the OP. Finally someone else on this forum with sense in them. This MMO is just a shambles.

Single player its okay. But its an MMO. The basic MMO features are lacking with content.

This is my problem with you post. Yes, there is a lot of problems with pvp right now, however you didn't even mention the things 2.0 broke. All you did was talk about how much time you spent, and how there are a lot of stuns in the game, but then tell us how much you enjoyed the game up till 2.0. So you are telling my you were able to tolerate all of the CCs up till 2.0, and for some reason you can no longer? 2.0 has problems, but stuns and CCs is at least one thing 2.0 didn't break. You might not like all of the CCs, but I actually do. The only time you see a lot of CC is when are focused fired, and lets be honest, if you are being focused fired by 4-6 other people you aren't meant to survive that encounter anyway.
