Scott from the D Pad D Bags tells us why, as an avid Star Wars fan, he cancelled his Old Republic Account
I cancelled cuz I'm poor :( it was a fun game and I was looking forward to completing my Jedi guardians story.
Becasue its not KotOR 3, thats why!!!
I love star wars and bioware but i think they missed the point. Theres so many great sp rpgs and with guild wars 2 and its non subscription strategy (crazy right?) and tera and elder scrolls online, its destined to lose people. They woulda been better off creating either a fully fleshed mmo with heavy end game content or better yet an sp with multiplayer. Still coulda had expansions and coulda released another in 2-3 years. I dunno...im a little sad. Its good, really good but my bar was set so damn high.
I cancelled because I barely saw anybody roaming around the world on my server. I felt too alone in an MMO. That and in a guild I was in made up of about 257 people, nobody ever signed on ;_;
End game is non-existent. Great job on the voice acting and early game zones... but you failed big time at the one thing that keeps people playing. END GAME. They should have had it to begin with instead of thinking they could release it a year after the game released... it will be too late with Diabo3, Guild Wars 2, and the stupid WoW expansion. Not to mention new comers like Tera. I have a friend who is loving the game, but I can't wait for him to hit max level and come back to reality and play some D3 with me.
SWTOR's Endgame off the top of my head: - 3 different tiers of 50 PVP armor with 4 warzones. - Dailies that spread across 3 different planets - 3 different 8-man/16-man operations (raids) that have different difficulty settings (norm, hard, nightmare) - Quests tied in with challenging world bosses Feel free to tell me how a ~6 month old MMO with this much content is lacking in end game. There's a sufficient amount of content for even the "hardcore" raider.
I paid for one month and that was it, the game was just boring..
Yeah, I agree. It's just a WoW clone with more narrative. I mean yeah, the stories are marginally entertaining, but not anywhere near as engaging as what you get from Bioware's singleplayer outings...which kind of makes the whole thing moot.
If the people who made tera made TOR, it would've been delicious. Too bad both games will end up in the dirt.
I played with friends and really enjoyed the ride to 50. It felt like a bioware game with a Star Wars theme. Once I hit 50, there was very little to do but farm. There's no way I'll pay a monthly fee to do that.
I've subbed since launch and still enjoying it. The secret is to just play it in bursts. I'll play for like four hours a day for a week, put it down for two weeks then come back and repeat. Having said that though, I can see why people would quit.. the game just has no soul. Going to a new area there isn't a sense of excitement because it's drab, lifeless and and just plain boring. Compare that to the imagination and love that goes into the gaming worlds of games like WoW, SWTOR just can't compete.
