Personally I find it a bit insulting that despite having a CE of the game, they want me to sub to claim some 1000 cartel coins (I stopped playing a while back when it got slow and was going to try F2P till I saw that).
I paid 60 dollars for the box and subscribed for 6 months while most other subs were leaving the game. I have no cartel cash waiting for me. It's not that I think I necessarily deserve anything but damn, their goal is to entice people back right?
Things you called as junk are avaible at other mmos too.Ppl spend a lot of time to gather them.
Swtor isn't a bad mmo , it tops other mmos with its story/questing , original and fine adjusted class design and warzone design.After spending years at wow arenas runnin around pillars they were an breakthrough for me.
The reasons behind the swtors unsuccess are its crap engine with its terrible performance , bugs , difficulty of implementing useful tools.Other reasons are bugs at release , separating some countries as red zones and other EA patheticneses.
These reasons disturbed lots of players enough to scare them off and ignore game's good sides.
