Star Wars: The Old Republic – Free to Play or Free to Fail?

GI - In the world of massively multiplayer online role playing games (MMORPG), World of Warcraft holds all of the power. Over the years many small MMOs have tried to challenge WoW’s total control. At the end of 2011, Bioware‘s Star Wars: The Old Republic (SWTOR) tried to challenge WoW’s dominance. However after a few months, several major bugs and a distinct lack of content, SWTOR faded away into obscurity, like many MMOs before it. However, Bioware is trying to resuscitate its dying MMO by making SWTOR free to play. Will this move bring players in, or shove them away? (PC, Star Wars:The Old Republic)
