Star Wars: The Old Republic Patch Plans

A Community Q&A for Star Wars: The Old Republic offers answers to fan-submitted questions about the force-powered MMORPG. This offers details on the game's next major patch, outlining plans for new animations, space port changes, new LFG functionality, and also touches on the possibility of providing more ship customization features at some point further down the road. Thanks VG247.

The game was fun for me at first, but the veneer wore off very quickly. The leveling experience is great, though what they don't tell you is that the "fully" voiced over quests still contain canned responses, and are nothing more than glorified, "Deliver X/Kill X number of Y/Collect X for me," quests.

I had played with my original WoW guild, and most of us hit 50 in the first 2-3 weeks of launch. Level 50 was entirely made up of doing dailies, and attempting to run dungeons that were so buggy that half the time we couldn't complete them, and if we did complete them getting loot was a crapshoot. PvP was dull and boring, Crew Skills (except for Biochem) were rendered entirely useless as soon as you started doing warzones, hard mode flashpoints and operations. The flashpoints and operations were extremely easy, and virtually no difference between normal/hard/nightmare mode other than the bosses had more hp and did more damage. I rationalized paying for one month by convincing myself that they would fix everything, that every MMO has issues at launch, etc. My guild finished hard modes within the first 6 weeks of launch, including the new bosses added in the first content patch. I stopped logging in after 7 weeks.

All in all, the game was a nice distraction, but it doesn't have legs. I know Ohlen has come out and said that it was not their intent to revolutionize the MMO genre, but only to build a solid MMO game. It has turned out to do neither, it is merely a single player game with an end-game that acts as an homage to MMOs. To quote Cutter, "F2P in 6 months."
