Concern for the future

ESO has had nothing but bad press from the beta, and is a traditional swords/sorcery game that doesnt really cut into ToRs demographic.

I'd be more worried about Wildstar, as it is a Scifi game and seems to be going for a more old school approach and has more sandboxy features that a lot of people around here claim to love.

Wildstar is trying to be "WoW funny" but it's just a dumb, childish anime game.

I'd be more concerned with WoW's expansion that ESO or Wildstar.

The mods I use in Skyrim make the game look damn close to next gen graphically.

Those great elements which make Skyrim such an appealing game to the masses are non existant for ESO.

ESO looks worse than SWTOR and the game play is rough.

Now, the new MMOs coming out in the next year... those may have an impact on SWTOR, but certainly not ESO.
I couldn't agree with you more. I Beta tested it twice and twice it failed to even come close to what I'd expect. In my opinion, there is no way the game is going to stay sub for long. It isn't worth the price of the box and the price of the sub.

Care to elaborate? All the press I've seen thus far has been largely positive compared to the aforementioned ESO.

Look at the characater models. It looks like something aimed at 10 yearolds. It's not even "stylized" like Wow or SWTOR, it's just childish.

Just a theory
I agree with this, something is on the horizon........

I have good news and bad news for you.

The good news are: ESO is terrible. It will flop bad.
The bad news: With the current scarce of content and information, SWTOR wont be getting any better.

As others have said, more serious concerns would be Wildstar and the new WoW Expansion leaving behind panda land.

IN the next coupe months, as many of us know, Bethesda will be launching ESO. This is a massive game to try and go against, and yet EA and BIoware have nothing on the horizon to counter it. A new FP this coming month is nice, sort of as there is not a whole lot there for endgamers to really get excited about, but were is the next expansion. Its been a year since the release of ROTHC with no hint of another expansion on the horizon. Oricon and CZ were nice small add ons, although if i hear Ramuss or Vigilant speak again i might have to remove my ears, but were is the next Makeb, the next level cap, the things that keep the endgame players happy. Lets face it most of this games subs are those endgame players and If BW doesn't step it up fast, i worry about the future of the swtor galaxy
A lot of people don't seem to realize this but we just had an expansion released called Galactic Star Fighter. Don't expect to see another expansion for another year if you even really want to call them that. I don't think this game is ever going to get an actual expansion back. Its probably going to always be these small "DLC" updates.

As for level caps......no just *********** no. I hate level cap increases. I'm still pissed that this game raised the cap to 55 when there was no need to. Level cap increase is the laziest way ever to add content and it KILLS old content.

The future of swtor will be fine. The damn game made like $140 million last year. It aint going anywhere any time soon for pve players. Sadly I can't say the same about pvp but whatever.

ESO is not a bad game by any means. Its actually better gameplay wise. I like the fact that I dont have to worry about hitting "1234567890-=" all the time and it plays how an elder scrolls game should (more in tuned with morrowind).

But this game doesnt have to worry about anything. "Star Wars" is keeping this game alive, and to me seems it is the ONLY thing keeping it alive. If this were an original IP im sure this game would have been dead long ago as it offers nothing new other than bioware's cutscene mission pick ups.
