    Like every other WoW killer...Maybe SWTOR has an actual good chance to survive as an MMO. I just finished the beta this weekend and while I was not "blown away", I definitely had a good time playing it. But when people say that WoW will die from another MMO, that's bogus. Look at all the other MMOs that killed WoW like everyone else said they would.

    I'm sure no one sane is debating that it's amazing leveling content, I mean it's fucking Bioware. The major problems I have, and have had since it's announcement, is how it will work when the MM kicks in. Meaningful choice is amazing until you start to farm things over and over again with random pubbies with differing opinions.

    Solid comment. Except that some of "it's competitors" have up to 3 million subscribers, which is less than 4x more - not 10.

    Fail comment. When was the last time WoW lost 1.1 million subscribers in a 6 month period? When was the last time WoW ever had a negative year of subscribers?

    Oh that's right, NEVER. It's one thing to criticize people for saying WoW is "dying" or is about to go bankrupt, but I would advise you not to nullify your entire argument by following it up by claiming WoW is in the same condition as always. WoW is in trouble. This is a fact. MoP could make or break it for a lot of the community, and if they continue at their current rate of subscriber loss (which realistically won't happen but still) they would have no players in 5 more years.

    WoW is suffering slightly and with other MMOs coming out that are OBVIOUSLY drawing people away FOR GOOD, it's a little closed-minded to say "see you guys when you come back to WoW". This isn't Wrath where the amount of players leaving was counteracted by the amount of players being drawn in.

    EDIT: Sorry just to clarify, despite no longer playing I'm not anti-wow. I had some great years on WoW. I just hate the fact that people automatically jump to extremes of "EVERYTHING IS WRONG WITH WOW/NOTHING IS WRONG WITH WOW" when it's obviously somewhere in the middle.

    There will be a roll system deciding who gets to say something, but you will still get LS/DS/Affection points based on what you decided to do, not what your group member did.
    (This was in a preview video somewhere, I don't think it's NDA breaking.)

    I look forward to trying out the beta soon, and as someone who leaves WoW repeatedly when I tire of it (not ragequitting over some minor detail, but actually just getting bored) I probably will switch over to this until GW2 or MOP is released.

    What in particular hooked you into the game during the Beta?

    in all honesty im not trolling you, but it puzzles me why did you create a char to tell a bunch of total strangers that you are going to leave this game. I mean if you were a some sort of semi active poster here, i could understand why you feel the need to tell the people here that you will be gone, but this way ...?

    The story, and dialogue. Again, I wish the NDA was down so I could explain why. However, let's just say it works, and it adds a LOT to the game, especially in groups.

    This

    The beta completely assured me my quitting of wow in March and rapid following of swtor was justified times 100.
    I really really loved it, who knew an mmo could actually make you connect with your character through story.

    If you look past the 'I'm leaving', he at least said he enjoyed his weekend playing the Beta. That's something I still have to look forward to. I scored a beta key from a gaming site, but Swtor has also said anyone who signed up before the 11/11 will get into the future weekend tests too.

    Well I don't find it fun at all and I have been. Hell I have every fucking game under the franchise. I even played Galaxies for a bit. I'm not impressed by it, so what, want to fight about it?

    I read the whole post, it's just that I cannot understand why you would create an account on a site you never posted before, "just" to tell them that you are leaving one of the games that are talked about. Giving a reason why is cool to me, but its like going to a place in your city where none knows you and shouting:"Hey Im leaving you city X for city y because the grass is greener there".

    Well that's clearly necessary for gameplay, but it is massively immersion breaking. If you can't make a decision (or have a random chance or being unable to) in a group environment it leads to very dull and painful grouping experiences, that's why a true MMORPG has never existed, it's impossible to actually make. The only way to really make it work is to go the DnD route and make all adventures responsible for their own actions.

    So, you never gave level 50 raiding, Tier2 instances a chance, or tried the new stuff at 50? How asinine is that? Most of the content, things to do in teams is at level 50 - just like wow.

    Personally, I hated the grind from lvl 40~50, but at level 50, these Trion guys bring out so much content, there always seems to be something to do when you log in.

    Haven't played WOW in months, not bitter about it in any way. Just didn't agree with the direction the game has/was headed/heading (pre MOP announcement/leak).

    I've been periodically checking the SWTOR site every couple months to see what kind of new updates/information is presented. Got to watch the first 40 minutes of the I/A yesterday and my interest grew exponentially. The depth of the decisions that had to be made by your character were awesome. I'm also really curious how Revan is going to fit into this story. (I've seen the 2minute teaser hinting towards him.) Whether I play or not I will be keeping up with what they do with Revan regardless.

    People find joy in letting everyone know they're quitting. So they can hear other people tell them that it's okay. They're questioning their decision.

    K bye. There is a good chance that we will see you again. All of you.

    Just like we saw with

    Warhammer
    Aion
    AOC
    Rift

    Did I miss any?

    I feel the gaming community is pretty tired of this kind of mmo anyway... WoW and StarWars WoW with cool leveling, SWToR is fun to level maybe it will last and have good end game. But will it be a revolution and people will talk about it in 5 years ? I doubt it. Also EA is bullshit and I have lost faith in Bioware for these last years but that is not the point, maybe SWToR will be good anyway.

    What I mean is I feel a lot of people are waiting for something really big that is going to shatter what we are used to.
