You must still play this game, and one of the very few that actually enjoy it.

After you butt hurt because it's not WoW?

I'm playing through for the stories (good or bad).... I feel like what I am doing has a sense of purpose.. and not mindlessly mashing my keyboard trying to get better gear.

I follow the story because of the cutscenes and dialog choices. It's not lines of text that mean nothing because I don't read them.

It's the cool thing to bash SWTOR as an MMO... I'm playing it as a RPG... sue me.

I think it's great you like it, honest. Just like when Virtuous_t bashes GW2 cuz he loves WOW, I think as long as a game brings you fun, it's good!

SWTOR wasn't all bad. I enjoyed it for a while, but the world felt empty after the newbie zones and too much Barren-like treks for me.

And I think this is the whole point... is it the best game ever? No. Is it the worst game ever... no.

It is some place in the middle... but to mindlessly bash it and bash those who enjoy it is what irks me.

The funny part is had SWTOR came out before WoW it would have been the standard and any game that didn't have dialogue choices and cutscenes would be laughed at for making us read.

LOL...what?

Because it's not WoW? SWTOR is a fucking clone of WoW. They copied nearly everything, right down to the color coded grades of armor.

If you want to start a new thread to praise SWTOR, then by all means. But, we'll reserve this thread for crapping all over this pile of shit.

It's not a clone... STWOR is Star Wars... WoW is orcs. WoW lore gets given to you via text... SWTOR is by cutscene.

OMG THEY COPIED COLORS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

All MMO mechanics copy something that came before it (aside from some of the real-time combat games I have read about... being able to dodge at incoming attack with movement).

You're a bigger fan boy then I thought then if you can't see what Bioware copied from WoW.

I notice the only thing you mention being different are the cut scenes.

LOL

Clone - n genetics, an exact replica of all or part of

And I notice you can't read.

Lore.

And how specific do you have to be to deem something different?

GTA and Saints Row... Clearly the same and clearly different.

You come up with two COMPLETELY DIFFERENT MMOs that are enormously different from Wow/SWTOR/City of Heroes/Aion/Rift....

They are all games of AOE, DoT, specialized classes, tanks, healers, dps....

Don't hit your goggles. That could put some hurt on the eye socket.

You're going to actually quote a dictionary term on the meaning of "Clone"? You know what the fuck I mean dude when I say clone. Of course one is Orcs and the other is Star Wars. No shit. Does that completely diminish then, every other aspect of copied UI, talent trees, mini map, raid mechanics and boss abilities? Even some of the tooltip desciptions are nearly copied word for word for christ sakes. LOL

BUT IT'S GOT CUT SCENES!! THAT'S WHAT MAKES IT COMPLETELY DIFFERENT!!

You're in the minority homie. The vast majority of people that gave up on SWTOR all thought the exact same thing. A WoW rip off and clone.

I think if you look at it that way it is not that bad.... tho when I played crafting was a joke.... and space was worse than that.

Just don't see how you can release a SW game without decent space content....
