A timeline, if you will-

I was so against the game before I got in the beta.. way against it, it looked dull in animation and look. I joined most of you and countless others bashing the game. Then I got talked into the beta, loved it, bought it. Ate come crow.

Got my Imperial agent to 50, enjoyed some of the leveling up, got tired of the side quest voice dialog (skipped most of that past level 35 or so)..absolutely HATED the back and forth and back and forth of my class quest line. Constant running around was not in any way amusing. HATED the bugged (and I think, still bugged, class boss battle on a ship -no spoilers-.. and how long it took me to counter bug that fight to make it work.

I did some PvP along the way, totally misjudged the IA Sniper mechanic and ended up hating the idea that for my guy to be really effective in PvP he has to SIT STILL behind a big red shield. Oops.. my bad. Then the class mechanic bugs with my "roll to cover" not working or my "take cover in place" not working.

Got STEAMROLLED pre 50 in PvP.. often.. just rolled the heck over. Whichever dev thought it to be a good idea to have players with 19k health and ridiculous mitigation and big damage fight players with 12k health..ought to be fired. especially considering the field was never leveled.

50's got their own bracket, I was level 48.5 at the time, so I didn't get to enjoy the pre 50 PvP much anyhow.

Hit 50, stared at my guild (a WoW powerhouse raiding guild that had a few xfer over into SW.. some old faces.. etc.. gamers that were hardcore WoW raiders.. we raid.. we own content.. this is where I should be happy now.. right? Not one single bit.

I have not been motivated at all to log into the game at all.. the dailies blow, the PvP dailies are more of the same nonsense.. Ilum (the PvP world) was perhaps the worst implementation of world PvP I have ever seen in a game.. totally one sided vs the poor Repub.. then it just got boring as hell..nobody is there, it's capture.. get in.. get out.. go do something else.

I sit here with free time, and no games I want to play. Thinking of reinstalling Rift.. no kidding. I guess I'll just play BF3 for now -shrug-

tldr:
wanted to hate it
ended up loving it
got really bored despite this game being exactly what I'd want, on paper

dunno man, just felt like it missed the mark to me.
