I'm tired of seeing all the negativity here. I don't care if so many people don't like it. I do. I raided all content so far, except the latest, I've played 2 empire toons to 50 and one republic toon to 50. I can't play 4+ hours a day like most people yet I dont' consider myself a casual gamer since I like raiding. I played WoW for many years, once Cata released, I like many, that was the last straw. While I had many good memories in Wow, it was time to move on.
I tried Rift, Tera, and Aion and while I think all those games are great in there own way, they didn't hold me. The only game I'll never walk away from is Eve Online, been there for two years and I'm the kind of player that hopes for a good sandbox to come out soon. Before playing SWTOR, I had never played another Star Wars game, or even read any of the books. Once I started playing and reading the lore from the Codex, I was hooked. To be honest, I don't have much trust in EA. The only thing that scares me about this game is that EA controls it.
Bottom line, I'm loving SWTOR, have been since launch. All these bugs people report, I've not seen 90% of them, people in my guild have said the same. They don't ever see bugs either. It causes me to think people are just making stuff up just because they want the game to fail. (personal opinion). If you love a story and fun pvp and raiding, this is the place to be. Again, I do realize it won't please everyone, but I and a few WoW refugee's are having a great time.
Working on a Powertech Bounty Hunter atm, only 19, but it's fun. Anyways, it was time for a post praising the game instead of more bashing. I know how forums are, and how SWTOR haters are. I'm prepared to be flamed to hell and back only for posting that I enjoy the game. I'll never understand that, but haters hate. Cheers!
