Best 24min ever but... is it worth playing?
I stopped playing SWTOR after the first episode of that Knights of the Eternal Throne crap. That shit definitely was not worth playing. It was boring as fuck with a weird story, weird emo characters like that Vaylin chick and the gameplay was intentionally super-simple, super-easy (even easier and more simple than the class story content) so even total n00bs could finish it.
The game is F2P tho so anyone can check it out for themselves (if you can bear the F2P restrictions).
Some of the class stories are actually pretty good for a MMO. The expansions (Rise of the Hutt Cartel and Revan) up to that Knights of the Eternal Throne stuff are mostly OK, too. It's certainly sorta fun exploring all the planets and stuff like that at first.
As most MMOs the real game a.k.a gear grind starts once you are max level. I got tired of that shit very quickly since you will end up running the same ol' flashpoints (dungeons) or operations over and over and over...
Being in a guild is almost a must at that point or it won't be very enjoyable.

I'm holding up hope that since they've continued to work on that maybe Disney and EA will greenlight a single player only Kotor 3.
Seems very doubtful. The Old Republic setting was always a crutch to work around any continuity issues with regard to movie content. Now that GL is out of the picture I doubt that anyone at Lucas/Disney is really into expanding that setting.
In fact, I hope so. Fuck the Old Republic. It's boring. Thousands of years before the movies and it's always the same old crap... the Jedi are on the verge of extinction... oh no, wait... now the Sith are on the verge of extinction... and now it's the Jedi again... rinse, repeat ad nauseam.
I'd rather see more games set in the Episode III - Episode IX timeframe which cross paths with events we have seen in the movies or that run tangentially along them in an intelligent manner.
Like, let's see a Wedge Antilles X-Wing game for starters! This comment was edited on Apr 14, 2019, 19:30.
