Star Wars the Old Republic: Unable to Install for Many Gamers

There is a disturbance in the force but unfortunately BioWare has yet to admit it. Visit the SWTOR forums and you will find an unnerving amount of posts from customers unable to even install the game. The questionable launcher combined with unstable patches have created a nightmare for many, including myself. (PC, Star Wars:The Old Republic)

"many"? how many are "many"? did you poll them?

The fact that it happens to you and a few others on a forum (that has no statistical value whatsoever and is full of trolls anyway) has nothing to do with "many". Get some actual figures, then do come back.

Abriael, The first thread (1000 plus posts) was deleted by Bioware "supposedly" because it reached the threshold for posts on the forum...that's a lot of gamers with an unplayable game. This is a much larger problem than most realize and more than BW wants to admit. If your system is running without random crashes or even installing for that matter, consider yourself lucky. The second thread on this is closing in on 300 posts (and a sticky) as we speak and will more than likely reach the same threshold in no time.

Mutley416, I have tried re-installs, re-imaging, launcher repairs and done everything in their list to resolve it with no luck. I'm running a new Alienware rig by the way that has had zero issues. Hoping the maintenance that is taking place tonight will fix a lot of these issues. Stay tuned... =)

Sounds like people need to sell there pc imo, if you can not use one you should not have one.
