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.

I also already hit burn out with this game.

Here is the problem (with MMO's in general). Beyond the setting, and story, there are no new ideas. Nothing brought to the table at all. You have WoW-style skill trees, you have dailies, warfronts (battleground), 4 man instances, and raids. It's all so cookie cutter. It's like MMO Paint by Numbers, these days.

Remember when MMO's used to actually come up with their own concepts? Now it's just 'copy the WoW formula and be done with it.'.

The one thing Swtor has that is original are the space shooter missions, but even those are uninspired. Here we have an MMO set in space, and the only space combat at all are just single player 'on-rails' shooting galleries. Where is the vision?

Oh and don't get me started on their customer support. It is non-existent. They outsourced all their support to a company in India, and most of the time when you actually get a response to a support ticket, it's in broken English, and has nothing to do with what your issue was. Their support staff has clearly never played the game, or possibly any games.
