This is actually a pretty good game despite all of the complaints.

I've been reading through the forums for months now and one thing that rings very loudly here is how disappointed a lot of people are. I know a lot of the frustrations are warranted, although I have to say that a alarmingly large amount of the complaints are ridiculous.

 

World size.. to big, or you hear to small.. it's gone both ways.

 

Quests.. to linear,or ya hear to spread out..

 

Leveling.. to fast, or ya hear the story quests(main part of the game to be honest)take to long, most find themselves hitting spacebar all the time(I love the stories and only spacebar in FP's I've done)

 

I could go on for days about contradicting complaints here. It's nuts.

 

Lets hear about some of the good things in this game that everyone avouds talking about for the most part..

 

Your ship. Great having a hub. on top of that you get missions for your ship while your there. I'd like to see space mission FP's. They can really expand on this but so far it's a great addition that no other mmo has done.

 

Companions. They've received the credit they deserve already but I just want to repeat. I love the companions. I don't think it takes away from grouping at all, it only adds to the rpg/mmo feel that your on a mission that is all your own in a world that is populated by people on missions that are all their own. Grouping happens a lot but anyone can solo and feel like thier group has a tank/dps/heal combo that will get them through a majority of the solo content.

 

Story lines. This game is an RPG with 8 different stories you can play. you don't need to and maybe don't want to, but if you want to make an alt, you get a bonus of a new story as well as the alt you wanted. No more "gawd.. here we go again" ok.. well.. it is an alt so it is doign it all over again but.. at least you get a new story to keep ya moving.

 

Legacy. It's not 100% yet but I think it's a great idea. It may just be another form of AA but it's unique and cleaver the way it works with alts. Once again, alts are more worth while to start in this game than most.

 

Graphics. Very solid graphics. It's obvious SWTOR went their own way with the style. I would of preferred a more realistic Star Wars look, but.. it is what it is. I'm a little disappointed in some of the character models but they aren't bad. I like the female troopers look and for the most part the females in the game look great. The males look pretty generic.

 

No credit farming advertisers. I have yet to see a single add on chat. Maybe a lot of other people have but I have not. I think that BW has done a great job in keeping that under control. Sadly the item duplicator/ money bug was horrible and many folks made millions of credits off it.. I blame the people in game though, their greed out weighed the desire to report an exploit.

 

For everyone out there that compares it to other games.. WoW did not have the promised PVP for months after release, the bags where horrible at first and the exploits in pvp when it did come out where terrible at first. I'm not gonna go on but do an internet search on the history of mmo releases and bugs. Nothings smooth. This game has been very impressive through the first 5 weeks.

 

I can go on further but I'll leave that up to everyone else. All in all, I really enjoy this game and what it brings to the table. It's only been out a month and it's already established itself as a deep game that has a lot of room for improvement/additions. Only 1 month into retail and we have a fully functioning game from 1-50 with a lot of extras that where LIVE when they went live.

The forums are for feedback, people are more inclined to provide feedback when they are unhappy about something.... so the majority of the post are going to be negative/complaints. The most successful game in this genre has had people ************ up a storm on their forums for 7+ years.... don't see that trend changing here...

It's funny that I was thinking of starting a "Friday Positive Thread" this morning before I came across this thread.

 

Well said, OP. I love this game right now. Is it perfect? Ah, no. But it is a lot of fun! And the SI storyline to me just feels kind of epic! It slowed down a bit in chapter 2 and the start of chapter 3 but it picked up it's epicness again last nite for me!

 

And I hope they give Ashara some skin in an upcomming patch so I can get her into the slave girl outfit :)

I actually enjoy the game, sure there are some annoying bugs. I have faith they will fix a lot of these shortly. I rushed my first toon to 50 so I could get started on endgame. Now I am leveling another toon and actually going through the class quest and enjoying that part of the game as well. There will always be people who don't like certain things and they are just going to have to go find something they actually like.

I couldn't possibly agree more with the OP

also rings very true, but it's a frustrating reality for fans that are looking for tips and wanting to suggest improvements contstructively.

Agree with you 100%. It's nice to hear from somebody who isn't a whiny unsub.

 

I'd just like to point out that not all people who un-sub whine about it. :)

I for one had to un-sub because my computer barely exceeds the minimum requirements and, for how it runs on my system, it isn't worth the money each month.

However, I will most definitely be back if there is some miraculous change that makes it run on my heap of junk, or when I get a new computer in a few months!

 

It is a fantastic game, the storyline is amazing and the voice acting and choices put this game WAY ahead of others, such as WoW. I haven't been bored yet and still play through my horrible, stuttering, quests as if it was running smoothly!
