Why should we pay?

Why in hell are you having a maintenance at 6 [edit]: PM , this is the time when people actually have time to play, why don't have the service in the middle of the night. Oh, sorry I forget, it's night in USA. I pay for this game, but instead I have to look on a screen that shows "server offline".

Give me one reason to not quit this game.

And all the futures that comes in patch 1.2 should have been in the game from start. Why start from the beginning, instead of taking all the good things from, for example World of Warcraft and continue build on that.

I thought you could make something nice out of the Star Wars Theme, but you failed, as everyone else that tries to compete with WoW.
I don't complain I just want to know. Why pay for something old, I want to pay for something new, and the story that makes you guys on Bioware so "speciel" will not last forever. When the story ends, your game will too if you not make a drastic move.

This game allready lost a bunch of players, and more will quit, I ensure you that.

Actually, the forums have lost a bunch of trolls, but the game hasn't lost a bunch of players.

Just sayin.

I'm in the USA, and the servers just went down again. Its noon right now. Noon. But guess what, I'm not complaining. Because I know how online games work, there are these things called updates that go out once a week on a scheduled time. And occasionally there are these things call Hotfixes that happen after those scheduled updates, to fix any problems caused by them.

Derp.

Nobody is forcing you to play. If the game doesnt meet your expectations, click cancel, fill in the box asking why you cancelled, and go play another game until you feel that the game is worth spending your money on.

Would you rather suffer through server maintenance 1 day a week and have the game run. Or deal with crippling bugs and performance issues that would certainly result from not maintaining the game's infrastructure?

I realize it can be frustrating when you want to play, but its a necessary evil.

All I can really say to this is:
"Don't let the door hit you where the good lord split you"

Seriously... there are plenty of things that are legitimate to complain about but complaining about them doing maintenance at a time when server loads are at their lowest is stupid. And, no, 6am is not primetime. Primetime is from about 6:00pm to about midnight in whatever timezone you are in.

As to the quality of the game? In all honesty I've played every major MMO out there either during beta a free trial or actually paying for a subscription. None of them were/are as good as SWTOR is at their releases... not a single one, including WOW. The only one even remotely comparable was Dark Age of Camelot and that one was only better in the PVP department (to this day I still say the RVR system in DAOC is the best implementation of PVP I've had the pleasure of enjoying).

It is just 30min downtime right now for server restarts.

Overall the game has really high uptime.

But I am in the US so if you are talking about the regular downtime for maintenance then I guess that sucks for Non-US people?

All games have maintenance, This one included. Its once a week, and its not that big of a deal. If you can't go without video games for ONE DAY then you might want to see someone about that.
