My initial impressions stand - they brought the single-player RPG aspect (at least in KotOR terms) to the MMOG world, but there has been no reason to interact with anybody yet.
The combat is okay, though inferior to WoW's, and I still have no idea what the end game will be like. We're level 22 right now so we have access to the space ship which has helped open up the world slightly, but the planets feel a bit confined and, though fun for the first handful of times, the space combat ends up being another grind.
I will not stop raiding in WoW, but I want to play ToR during non-raid times and I actually have an idea of what my character is doing while leveling unlike any toon I have in Azeroth. More than anything, they need to make a number of fixes and tweaks right now - the AH is cumbersome, slicing has broken the currency values, some professions are complete money sinks, combat mechanics are not entirely clear, quest rewards are all over the place, harvesting frequently beaks companion AI, a number of (non-heroic) quests are resetting themselves, quests that don't show up today are magically available tomorrow, taxi cabs/anchors are placed chaotically, at least half of all the archaeology spawns cannot be looted ($@%$#,) etc.
Long term end game is still the unknown. These games are based around grinding to a certain extent, but I am concerned that ToR might enjoy the grind a bit too much - gear up your main, gear up your companion, gear up all your companions, gear up your ship, grind out commendations, grind out commendations per planet, grind out light/dark side, modify every gear piece, modify every gear piece with a handful of different items, gring out credits for mount skills, grind out space combat, etc.
We really are having a blast leveling up, but other than playing once on the Empire side, we are still not sure what we would be doing after hitting the level cap. With the low player population on each shard, there being no real need to ask for help from other players, and the limited communication and grouping options, we are not really interacting with anybody, not making any friends or acquaintances. I definitely care about my character's leveling story, but I don't feel any connection to the overall world. Again, give me the leveling of ToR and the raiding of WoW.
