    Can we please stop saying SWToR or ToR?

    The O stands for Old, not of. It is not Star Wars: The of Republic. It is Star Wars: The Old Republic. SWTOR. TOR for short. There is no reason for the O to be lower case.

    Who started this ridiculous trend anyways?
    WoW having more subs than SWTOR is the same thing as Justin Bieber having more youtube plays than Tupac. Just because its more popular doesn't mean its good.
    Warcraft Lore has gone from one of the most vast and interesting stories in all of gaming to a bad Thrall Fanfic by Chris Metzen.

    Your right to be angry this is an outrage!!!!....
    Ice cream sales increase in the summer over the rest of the year (this is established fact). The number of drownings increase in the summer over the rest of the year (this is also established fact). By your logic ... ice cream causes people to drown.

    Does it really matter? SW:ToR is more appealing to the eye (imho) than all caps is. It gives the acronymed title something distinguished where as all the caps seem as though your yelling it. Though, this is just my prospective.

    LOL ToR won't mind either way I think.

    Is this really something to write a new thread about? I dont see this issue being that big to waste precious MMO-C space

    OT: I think some angry star trek fanboi started the trend to piss of star wars fans

    You know, it's the little things that add up, and frankly I've seen much, much more useless threads on this board, so, yeah. Anyone remember "DUEL: VARIAN WRYNN vs GARROSH", "SYLVANAS vs TYRANDE" threads? Talk about useless bullshit huh?

    I am an avid WoW player, and even though I could give two Sh1ts about SWTOR, I am so mad at the lower case O as well. Thanks so much for making my day-

    I am surprised though that someone hasn't blamed Bioware for this. Or at least EA....

    HMMM you are right! If people can crusade against Blizzard and MoP we can crusade against this brothers and sisters!
    But really whats next, lets complain about the lack of cross eyed characters, or maybe why can't my character have a loving relationship with an inanimate object.

    the lower case o is "more appealing" to the eye because in our lives, we are subject to many acronyms, and all letters are always capitalized other than o's, i's and t's. Because the "o" is in the middle and "the" can, and does stay capital at the start of a phrase, it looks "nicer". But, it is in fact an incorrect acronymization of the name.

    All that aside, it really doesn't matter. I like the CAPLOCKS name better myself, but what can you do, ignorants will be ignorant.

    I'll spell it swtor if I wanna spell it swtor. Or tor. Or whatever else. Sure is faster than typing out "Star Wars: The Old Republic".

    ...and technically, if the capitalization is what's bothering you, shouldn't it be "SW:tOR"?

    Exactly, sometimes I wish people would act like they do on the internet but in real life. Would absolutely be hilarious watching people complain to their bosses or whoever. I know I usually point and laugh at those that are so nit picky over every detail in life especially ones that they can't control. I laugh, but I actually do feel bad for them, must be horrible not being happy with anything.

    I blame Blizzard, it's clearly a conspiracy by them to make the competition look rediculous, and outrage random internet speling nazis.
