As for TOR, one of the big gripes was that the solo, story focused leveling suddenly stopped at 50 and turned into a generic dungeon/raid/pvp grind. More dungeons, more raids and more PvP hasn't reversed the subscriber loss, so what is their big plan for future F2P content? Raids, PvP and a group quest line. /facepalm

That's the biggest problem for me. They set up these interesting storylines, which are primarily solo, and then you get to "end game", and there's really nothing left to do solo. It's like they completely change the game at that point. I mean, yes, I can start a new character with a new storyline, but as about 90% of the quests are non-storyline, you tend to get burned out rather quickly. I mean, if it were a single player game, that'd be the point where I'd say I'm done, and move on to another game (which is what I do with MMOs). Now if they are happy with that happening, fine, but they tend to want people to stick around and keep playing. Well, what exactly am I supposed to be doing? I have no interest in the dungeon/raid system, and pvp isn't fun for me.

That's one of the problems inherent to the system they've all (mostly) chosen - the leveling system. You keep dangling level ups in front of people, but at a certain point, you stop giving out new levels, and people are left wondering what the new carrot is. I don't know what the solution is, but they really need to come up with a new single player friendly carrot if they want to keep people playing.
