This reminds me of the 'iPhone Killer" title... yet nothing has ever come close to it.

Watermasta, go back to Poke'mon - it's more your level.

*bites his fist* WoW *choke* Poke'mon *gag* pets... *deep breath*

Just going on topic before the lock though, it really is alot of fun if you want to give it a try. Was in a coulpe beta weekends. I was impressed. I don't think any games is going to kill any other game however, but I definatly see success.

I played beta and I loved it. Can't wait for launch.

As for the wow killer statement, just stop. You sound like the crazy new girlfriend jealous of the ex. It's okay that you had good times playing WOW. Just because you're moving on doesn't mean WOW is bad or "dying".

Swtor needs combat log parsing. Badly.

We need to know what classes to make.

So it is ok to go back to the ex every few days or so for a bit when the new GF is out of the house???

Here is my coment:

I checked it out at a friends house last night and I really liked it. There is a lot in it for WoW players. All of the key bindings and controls are basically the same as WoW. Much of the lower leveling is the same except for the many cinematics. All in all it felt as though they took WoW and themed it Star Wars and perfected it in ways that WoW has not. In short, I feel as though by playing off of all that WoW has established over the last 7 years they are simply paying hommage to the MMO Giant.

WoW > SWTOR:
Established ecenomy
Intimately detailed and unique lore
Huge franchise in the gaming market that shares lore and characters
PvP and PvE established and maintained
7 years of relative success
Still most subs of any pay to play
Take a chick's gear off and see a lot of skin (human female undies FTW!)
And much more.....

SWTOR > WoW:
Unique lore and setting
Cinematics out the @$$ to develope story
Path changing mechanics in quest choices
Lightsabers!
More developed UI allowing for better (IMO) interface options that WoW has yet to do.
More customizable talent tree
3 movies attached to its genre (I do not recognize episodes 1-3)
more mature graphics and stories
...Fat Chicks!
And so much more.....

It is worth trying out IMO. Each one of us are attracted to our games and hobbies for various reasons. Seeing how many of us are adults here (I am not sure about the OP), I would say at least try it or go to a buddies place who plays it and see how it plays out for an hour or so. Do not knock it till you try it. But if you like WoW over SWTOR, more power to you. I will see you around Azeroth.
