There are alot of trolls spreading misinformation about TOR so be wary .. the biggest one is that TOR is just a WoW clone.
Research the game yourself to disprove this. It has internet in a 3D environment, and uses a mouse for UI interaction. bout it. Standard controls for any game pre-dating WoW too. (A-W-D, etc)..
The internet IS really what you make of it.

I'm in love with this game, I love star wars (all 6 movies too O_O) and I'll definatley be playing this for a good long time.
People will vary, but there is a lot to do for a lot of differnt people and what they enjoy.
Huh, what does that have to do with what I said? The guy you quoted said that, if the end game is not good, people would quit once they finished the main story line. That has nothing to do with people just wanting to show off gear :/You're probably right. To which I would say, if people are simply into a game for the shallow reason that they can show off their high level gear or achievements, perhaps WoW, Call of Duty, or other such games would be right for them. If they're more into having fun in a game because it's a genuinely enjoyable experience, they might find themselves strangely and inexplicably attracted to SWTOR.
On topic: It is a well-known fact that everything Bioware touches turns into an awesome game. I see the game going places, the beta was phenomenal, the gameplay was good, balanced, and interesting. The scaled world is an awesome design and opens up a lot in exploration.
Trollsbane, which server area will you be putting your guild on, I'm interested in your guild and was just curious, I usually choose in between east and west... and I love my low ping.
Yes...the more i look into SWTOR the more i regret signing up for the year term agreement Blizzard put out a few days ago Ah well, free Diablo 3 and love that i get to be a guarenteed Beta tester.
But WoW actually does have alot to worry about.
I don't think SWTOR will fail, per se, but it won't put anything more than a dent in the market.
SWTOR isn't new - it's another MMO based on a popular IP. The grounds for success just isn't there.
That said, it'll probably do well, considering it's loyal fanbase. But I'm going to guess that it'll spike at 3-4 million subs and then decline as people start looking back at WoW and/or towards GW2.
Same goes for GW2, subsequentially.

I could barely take a step during the Rift beta, or during the week I played it's trial, without constantly thinking about various differences and comparisons to WoW.

I can agree with those points.
Though my time playing TOR in a convention left me comparing a bit, but then forgetting to compare cause it was really different to me. I later tried to play the other games I know and have spent a lot of time in, and found myself bored very quickly, and not ever wanting to play them again. /shrug
