Even if you go back to WoW, remember to visit these forums from time to time. I like your posts, they're always interesting.

Thanks. I can front the sub just to post on the forums, which has of late has become my favorite part of "playing" SWTOR.

Fun fact: I'm not an alt account of Urael's created just to make the above post.

What was the point of all that? Pfft.
No Individual class/companion story extensions, make it technically challenging to pay a sub!

Interesting posts, my friend!

I think one thing the devs should NOT do is add new planets. Instead, they should greatly add "[Heroic]" planet expansions for all planets that they've made. I remember seeing a post from the SWTOR Facebook page saying: "Which is your favorite planet to explore?" I was so confused, because thinking about it I had no favorite planet to explore at all. Even planets like Belsavis felt so enclosed and I liked the environment and all, but it didn't feel immersible.

They're planning on adding Makeb, but the exploration of that planet may end somewhere like all the other ones. I have not been impressed with ANY of the planets whatsoever—especially Coruscant, since I happen to be from NYC.

Waste of time to read, move along.

I too would like to see the existing planets "fleshed out" so to speak. I agree as far as the "city" planets are concerned, they aren't much bigger than a NYC "city block".

I see you deftly retorted all that you saw wrong with the thread. Good Job! Thanks for the bump.

My sub here expires tomorrow

I doubt I can bring myself to resub before F2P. I'm going back to WoW for a bit too and check out the expansion.

I will certainly come back here by F2P. Here's hoping Bioware can turn things around and meet some of the potential of this game with F2P.

Happy hunting in what ever MMOs you choose, Urael and MOPSFounder!

Freaky thread. Freaky OP. Who gets sooo cut up about liking or not liking a video game?

In my opinion, if your going to be this tense and obsessing about details of an MMO then you will never be happy with one.

Any why go onto its forums and try to tell everyone it sucks?

Freaky behaviour.

Tim pretty much just explained the whys of this behavior I think.
The MMO player would do well to embrace the nature of reality: Everything is relative, a projection based upon a malleable set of universal laws. Reality is an elastic process in which our individual choices play an active role.
