Bioware's MMO remains strong, World of Warcraft still leading MMOs with subs by a wide margin
Star Wars: The Old Republic remains one of the top five subscription MMOs in the world, according to new research from SuperData.
A KOTOR under EA would have been the shits anyway.
It's a shame they won't reinvest that money into making some new story content. Despite all it's flaws, SWTOR had some fantastic stories.
Indeed. I want to jump back into the Bounty Hunter storyline the more I think about it.
Yeah lol, Bounty Hunter is probably my favourite story out of all of them, they really captured the feel perfectly.
Is playing for free worth it or is it too limiting ?
@3-4-5 I'd say it can feel too limiting at times. It's great that all campaign content is unlocked but PvP, dungeons, raids are all locked behind purchasable weekly passes. It's a micro-transaction haven.
I love that it was fully voiced. Imagine how much they spent on actors alone. No wonder it was so bloody expensive. It definitely has it charms.
I want to play it for each class story, but that would defeat the purpose of it being an mmo I have already beat the Sorcerer Story which was good.
Well. ONLY $165 million. What a failure. I think. I don't know. Actually that sounds like a lot of money. And only in one year. Seems like that's pretty good.
Let's put it into subscribers. Say 12 bucks a month on average (give or take subscription plans). (165000000 / 12) / 12 = 1,145,834 subscribers. Not bad I think for a "dead" MMO. It's not WOW levels but good enough.
I wonder where FF14 will fall next time now that its on PS4. I know it went over 2 million subscribers...so it must be up there somewhere...and its amazing...and has a lot of content for being young.
The "F2P" formula is working...milking dumb gamers for their hard earned money.
... strange statement you made. Storycampaign for free is a good offer imo; would jump in myself, if I had enough spare time. And I wouldn't call it dumb, if I spent some money on the game afterwards, if I genuinly enjoyed it. Moreover plenty of gamers (espespially the younger ones) actually spent money they didnt earn themself.
