Illum well that speaks for itself. Warzones are fine but they lack large scale warzones. Limit of 8 Players per side??? Really is that all they can manage? I was pumped for this game an enjoy the hell out of it when I was sub.

I did NOT unsub because of the price. Game as a whole is worth the monthly fee if the add on to it as promised and fixed it up as they went. I have moved on to another mmo, an I don't believe I'll be coming back even when it's free. EA is a company that has ruined many other game in which I enjoyed in the past until they merged or bought them. Today those games are still being made but now they are cheap an dumb. An I have a good feeling that ToR is going to suffer the same fate.
Let's put warhammer guy (don't recall the name) in charge, you know he did so well with the mmo warhammer. It's a shame this game has turned out to be just like Swg. I'm not certain which one was a bigger failure at this point.
they may have tried to cater for casuals,but did a poor job,,or this game would be swamped with casuals

no theres only (mostly) hardcores and fans left now,,and ,,,surprise,,not enough to keep game going

looks like nobody wants to "L2P NOOB",,they just leave for something better

Your comments are far to opinionated, biased and with false information for it to stand up to any decent discussion. Unfortunatly its childish posts like this that are holding up the game improving because BW are listening to the vocal few instead of the majority who are playing the game.

BTW the game is still hugely succesful, and Ive been very happy with the content thats been added, id like it to be more frequent and more depth, but in a years time we will see a very different game, much improved and a lot more content.
"hugely successful",,oh yea we can all see that,,,its good that you like the content, but a lot didnt, and simply left

so next year we will get the content , that should been in the game from launch? how many will wait for that?

they tried to make a wowkiller, released it before it was done, and now they have big problems

wow sold out to china, GW2 hackers paradise, do these guys sabotage each others work or something?

I am entirely in agreement with the OP.

The game is neither great nor bad, but it is true that Bioware is not following through with James Ohlen's statements (then Game director, now is completely off the radar.. maybe in a nice closet?). Is this a sign that EAware took control and messed up James' plans? We'll never know.

But the facts are that despite early promises that we would, as subscribers, get our money's worth of updates month after month, the updates have been taking longer and longer to reach us.

As the OP wrote, I am, too, doubtful that EAware will be able to stick to their six weeks content update plan. They've failed with the monthly update plan when they had a full team. I want to be wrong, I want the OP to be wrong, but the facts are not in EAware favour...

The content that is in 1.4 and beyond (Makeb, new space missions, Hyperspace warzone, HK-51) was announced in june at E3 already. Since then EAware has been rehashing the same "update" in its communication with nothing new. It's been rewarming the plate with already known content...

Meh I'm still going to give this game the benfit of the doubt even tho I just came back today after I had stopped playing 2 months after launch.

Plus with the latest fiasco with blizzard's new patch on wow (Just read the forums on the us & eu and look up crz) any mmo has to be better then that garbage of a patch and x-pac they just put out.

I said this on another thread; saying that this game is dying well before F2P "releases" means nothing. Saying that the devs/company are silent before F2P seems to be the standard. Overall this game is still new, and it is impossible to see what exactly is going to happen in the next few months.

It's kinda humorous considering the fact the game is still in the top tier of sub numbers (at least after WoW) and has more subs than a good majority of MMO's this far in it's life. Did the game live up to Bioware's expectations in subscribers? No. Is the game a "failure" as far as MMO's go? Hardly.

What an incredibly one-sided thread. If you actually wanted to determine where SWTOR was going you would not have left ALL the good parts out. This is nothing but hate my friend and you will generate nothing else with it.

These doom threads have been here since forever so move along people, nothing to see here.


I award you no points and may god have mercy on your soul.

What good stuff? The only thing I remember that was remotely good was the Rakghoul Plague World Event and when each new Operation and Flashpoint was just released at its time.

You seem to forget that SWTOR cost at least 200 million to develop, but total cost is probably over 300 million once you factor in advertisement and other expenses. It's a failure in that the game with a huge budget couldn't even keep half their subs and based on current trend may well be below the 500k or near that mark of subscribers, which in it's self is failure by swtor own statements when the game launch. Here is forbes report about EA and impact swtor has on EA. SWTOR is like the child that could have, but never amounted to any thing.
