As the title states, I really do wish this game had succeeded, to the point where I feel sad at the state its in now.
I bought the game when it first came out, I got two characters to level 50 and enjoyed the leveling experience immensely. PvP was alright, not as good as the WoW, but I figured all that could be ironed out, over the months after release.
Then I got hooked on the Guild Wars 2 hype train and it kind of ruined the fun of SWTOR for me. I no longer saw SWTOR as the MMO for the next several years, but the MMO for the next few months until GW2 was released.
However when GW2 came out, I hit 80 in like 3 weeks, full time job, married, other hobbies etc.. the game was so hallow that there was nothing at all to do. I loved the first 20-30 levels, but after that it was pretty boring, I kept telling myself "No, no, this has to be the game, and it will be better when im max level". Nope. I don't even consider it an MMORPG, its a console game.
So now, I play Mists of Pandaria, and while I am thoroughly enjoying my Windwalker Monk quite a lot, I look back on SWTOR and think.. that game, is probably the only MMO since WoW that actually had incredible potential.
When I heard the news about Disney purchasing Lucas films and that three more Starwars were on the way, I wondered if there was any chance at a re-release, a major overhaul to every aspect of the game, that could bring SWTOR back for a second try at release. However I know thats a pipe dream.
Anyway, I just thought I would vent, back to the 8 year old game because its unfortunately still the best.
