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.

pompombrum1247d ago

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 ?

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.
