News Comments > The Old Republic Cancellation Issues; Trailer

For one, canceling because of the Slicing or Biochem nerfs is ridiculous. That is the MMO equivalent of a child's rant, like stamping your feet or holding your breath. These professions were fundamentally Too Good and could not exist fairly alongside the other professions. Anyone who got upset about these nerfs would have probably also cancelled WoW when Stormherald's stuns were nerfed... again, because those stuns were simply Too Good. Look beyond the end of your own nose -- things might be great for you as a Biochem expert, but the guy who didn't get Biochem is feeling he made the wrong decision. Balance is key. And often, balancing and rebalancing happens many times throughout an MMO's lifetime.

But the Bioware goof with the cancellation option being unavailable or generally difficult to use? A major gaffe. They definitely have egg on their face for that.

Then again, I remember the Customer Service nightmare that was WoW in those initial months. And the subsequent nightmare, a few years later, with the Blizzard Store and BlizzCon tickets. Sometimes, these companies cannot perfect their backend systems... something breaks somewhere... nor can they always fully prepare for demand.

What's this? Common sense and rationality on the bluesnews forums?!? How dare you. BEGONE!

A companion of mine just failed a Diplomacy mission and I received "+1.10000000000238419" Light Points.

The game is buggy, but I'm enjoying it.

Don't blame players for your complete failure Bioware.
This game is such a fucking turd.
It makes one wonder where all that money went.
So far the Hero engine does not impress(someone sucked someones dick)the game is a stuttering mess on high end rigs in 2012 and yet the game looks like 2001, let's not speak of complete mind boggling shit like Anti-Aliasing FINALLY being implemented into the game this week.
A UI right out of 1994 and STILL cannot move a gdamned window on my screen.

This steamy pile of excrement needed another year in the oven but of course they just had to get it out before Christmas.
I'm trying to stay interested in my 45 Powertech and 33 Sith but at this point it feels as if i've been conned into yet another mmo scam by folks who knew their product wasn't ready for prime time and pushed it out anyway.

Oh yeah, this is EA, what am i thinking?

Bigcry

Personally I couldn't care less about PvP issues...it's just not my cup of tea.

What gets to me is that this is now the second update I've had to get, and the second time I get an "Error in update" message, which forces a repair that means effectively downloading the entire app again...all 5+ GB of it. Two for two isn't very impressive.

I haven't had any issues updating - even on multiple computers. Which AV do you use? Have you tried disabling it in advance?

Powerleveling is also optional.

Right on!

Level 19 Gunslinger, /played 1 Day, 4 Hours, 8 Minutes... enjoying the ride.

I've played more than you as I have 3 chars in the low 20's that I'm dabbling with. So far I prefer the Gunslinger.

My assessment is this game has its ups/downs but is certainly a very good MMO. For me it is a WoW-killer because I am bored with WoW.

Had both games been released at the same time (WoW with a current graphics engine) then it would undoubtedly crush this game. However, WoW was released ~8 years ago and has had plenty of time to bore people to death.

You're a special kind of dickhole when you think dickholes like you are better than dickholes like him.

About how many patches (if any) have they done so far to fix issues in the game? I don't play it, I'm just wondering if they are doing regular patches to fix things as well as add content.

Probably 10 patches since release - all of those have been bug fixes. They're making a solid effort and I applaud them on their minimal downtime strategy as I am rarely waiting for the servers to come up (and I'm an early morning player).

Lots of people say this is such a single player game and that's just not true -- it promotes multiplayer questing/instances/pvp just as much as any other MMO *but* it is so much better in the single-player aspect than those other MMOs.

I'm enjoying it - I'm glad their patching - and I'll probably stick around until a better MMO comes out or I get truly bored.

Parallax Abstraction wrote on Jan 10, 2012, 08:52:
They continue to include mod tools because every game since Oblivion has been using the same 2006 edition of Gamebryo (despite the damned lie Todd Howard repeatedly told of Skyrim being an "all new in-house engine") and it's trivial for them to release them. And as others said, this allows them to release afterthought PC ports with the same horrible UI because they know modders will fix it for them. I guarantee you, when the next generation of consoles finally forces them to start using a current engine, they'll probably forgo mod tools on the PC, or they'll release ones that are watered down in comparison.

Quite right, quite right... It would be an absurdity to think that anyone in that company advocates Bethesda's mod community support for all the right reasons.

The Starcraft 2 emulators, all two of them, suck, half the game is broken since they can barely keep up with the updates. The same thing will happen with any Diablo 3 emulators, and why would you hate on making real money in a game for selling your single player items

Ah, so legitimizing gold farmers and the ebaying of characters and shit is a *good* think in your point of view.

Gotcha.

The real money auction house is actually specifically *why* I won't be playing Diablo 3. Everyone is like "I'll just be able to play and make money off of the game!!!" when in reality you'll be competing with shit like prisons in China who force their inmates to play 20 hours a day and farm that shit out wholesale.

Blizzard is saying "fuck it, it's a big industry, so we might as well legitimize it and take a cut of profit from it."

So you won't be playing the entire game because of one optional feature that you simply feel you won't be able to profit from? Got it!

In other news, they'll have a gold-based auction house for those who don't prefer the real money version.

How is it at all different than you playing any games on Steam?

You're joking, right? Take your computer offline and see how many of your Steam games you can play while it's in offline mode. I just fired up Torchlight, MW3 and Dungeon Defenders with my network cable pulled from the back.

As he said, Diablo 3 is an MMO wannabe. It won't let you play at all, period.

True. Shouldn't be a big deal at all. This will be the first good game purchase of 2012.

Haha sure that's so much better, as if everyone just got together and decided what to like and dislike. Oh and they just happen to dislike the things you like. Everyone on the entire website, they all do it just because....they like to. Yep that's totally rational and not at all weird or paranoid. Everyone hates everything ever because they're meany heads, not because they are humans with opinions that sometimes conflict with yours or something.

They're all out to get you, time to stock up on foodstuffs and used videogames

No ma'am, you're still missing the point.

Anyone who blames disagreement about a videogame on an imaginary conspiracy of negative gamer groupthink is obviously a troll or an insecure moron who likely can't function in group settings

My comment is not specific to SWTOR. It is the same in almost every thread for every game.

Let me know if I need to help you comprehend anything else that is going on here. Allthumbsup

Whatever, dickhead. I'm well aware that you're an insecure little troll who doesn't understand that the universe doesn't revolve around his videogame opinions.

Are you just typing random words? I'm neither insecure nor trolling. Go beat up your dog or something you angry little man.

In your case it seems to be only flowery fanboy defense for this game. Must offset all negative comments about game because I enjoy it!

Uh, that is not correct. You are having fun because you had low expectations, not despite having low expectations.
You see - you had low expectations i.e. you did not expect very much from this game and the game offered more than you expected and that is why you are having fun.
If you had high expectations than the game would have under-delivered and you would not be having fun.

What an asinine twist you put on his positive comment.

Also, for those who have issues not being able to talk in party/guild chat - try leaving your guild and getting a reinvite. It worked for me.

Edit for 2 more points:
1. They said the chat issue is next on the fix list and quite possibly going to be fixed before the next Tues maintenance.
2. Yesterday's scheduled maintenance was finished 5 hours early. Blizzard still hasn't managed to do that.

If you insist on finishing every sentence with "lol", please never post again.



Nice fail on detecting Fibrocyte's annoyance with KilrathiAce's use of "lol" and a throw-away comparison to WoW.

I caught it just fine, thanks captain obvious. He isn't the grammar police, nor is KilrathiAce's opinion any less trivial than Fribrocytes. Clearly you failed at the irony of my post.


You obviously didn't get it the first time and this is just your attempt to save face. Nice.

Back to the topic at hand: I understand this rule isn't posted. What I am saying is once you are aware that it isn't proper activity then you should cease doing it. Whether you know not to do this by reading the forums, getting warned by an administrator, or just being born with common sense isn't really relevant.

EDIT: Disregard, apparently according to Bioware via Reddit, low-level farming of Ilum is okay.

Unless they decide it isn't. They said if a lowbie goes and opens a chest he won't be banned, but if you repeatedly "exploit" the resources you will be.

That is even worse, if you cross some moving, arbitrary invisible line, they can temp ban you. Basically, you can open chests and you only get banned if they feel like banning you.

Just fix the mechanic, it is so easy. Level limits on the chests, area, scaling the loot to level, ect.

This is the worst of the culture that infests MMOs. If you don't play the way people think you should, you are cheating and should be banned. It is like people who try to put arbitrary "no spawn camping" rules in games. Either the supposed spawn camping isn't a problem or the map is crap and no one should play it.

How about not doing it if it isn't what you should be doing? If you didn't know (really?) then you'll get a warning. If you do it again, you deserve a ban.

This is hardly different than speed limits. You have the option to go over the speed limit even though you shouldn't - but when you do, you're penalized. Or should the government put governors on all our vehicles?

Just play the game as it was intended. This is not a single-player game where you can exploit something and it only impacts you. Some of your actions in an MMO impact others and you should act accordingly.
