Epic disturbance in the force. Q~Q We'll all welcome you back with open arms if you come back someday. Server transfers are on the way. :'3
Aww thank you! It does mean a lot that you took the time to send me this. <3
In regards to my issues with TOR: It isn’t just server population or the bugs, and unfortunately it isn’t anything that can easily be fixed (I don’t think) by server transfers. I spent a good portion of today showing a friend some of the things I love about Warcraft and it just really underlined that not playing TOR is the right choice for me right now.
Part of what got me really excited about TOR was the idea of different worlds, because for me exploration and those little details within a world are so important.
My friend has played TOR and he was just blown away by the scale, the empty spaces, the little details that Warcraft is filled with. I’m still not convinced I’ll be returning to Warcraft but it did help me really define what my issues are with TOR.
Part of it, of course, is server population. But a bigger part is how small the world itself feels. For having all these planets you can visit, it ultimately doesn’t feel like you can really get lost. I never stumbled across anything out in the worlds of TOR that was just there for the sake of being there, but Warcraft is filled with areas that are purely cosmetic.
I wanted very, very badly to love TOR and I really did in a lot of ways, but ultimately it isn’t (and never was) what I am looking for in an MMO.
Showing off Warcraft to my friend today, hearing his awe when I took him up in a flying mount and showed him Tirisfal, wandering through Eversong and encountering random RP - these are the things that I’m really missing in TOR.
In my comment when I unsubscribed, I told EA/Bioware that I would be watching TOR and looking for an excuse to come back, and I really meant that. I have good friends who play and are excited by it still. I just can not justify playing when on some base level it isn’t what I’m looking for in an MMO.
I’m getting more and more frustrated with SWTOR to the point that it’s making me not even want to play. Although the vast majority of my complaints are centered around the fact that Shien started out great and has become a ghost town. :/
So much this. I actually am slowly coming to the realization that I will probably not renew again, and it makes me sad. It’s just not worth my money to twiddle my thumbs while they work out issues.
Not to mention the horrible, crippling bugs, including in the story itself (my favorite part). An entire conversation option of the agents bugged for almost a month? It’s just poor planning on their part, and it’s such a pity.
