The Old Republic Cancellation Issues; Trailer

The Star Wars: The Old Republic Forums have posts from players having trouble cancelling their accounts for the MMORPG yesterday on the eve of when the one-month free accounts activated on the game's first day will be billed for their first paid month of service. Massively notes this thread with a workaround, and that customer service suggests customers with such issues contact them by phone. On the other hand, BioWare announces how not cancelling will earn players a "Founder" title, and the website now offers a video showing new features coming to the game in the future. In a separate bit of news related to the game, this post has word from the game's Live Community Coordinator that they have temporarily disabled posting for all community members on the Star Wars: The Old Republic Forums. No explanation for this is offered.

Canceled mine a couple of days ago or I'd be seeing red. The leveling experience was fun although I solo'd through 95% of it and muted TeamSpeak pretty much all the time. This made the game feel like a single player game with MMO elements tacked on. When I got to 50 and saw end-game PVP, Hard modes, and Ops it really hit just how tacked on the MMO elements were.

Due to various issues, such as all bosses having a 1-2 minute enrage timer instead of interesting/new mechanics and the ability delay making melee totally unfun and bad to play I just wasn't having fun anymore. I loaded up Rift whom I still have a sub with and played some of it while taking a break from SWTOR and it hit me how much better of a game it was from a pure gameplay/end-game standpoint. I couldn't justify paying for Bioware's beta at that point.

Perhaps Rift spoiled me, because it actually launched with working, and fun end-game and bugs were quickly patched out, not left to fester until the one-month mark or longer in the case of issues such as ability delay or horrible battleground FPS.
