Star Wars: The Old Republic’s expansion announcement made me think about resubbing. I’m still thinking about it, but hey, that’s better than not thinking about it. Or something. Anyway, the point is, it tickled my Star Wars fancy.

What about you, MassivelyOP readers and Star Wars fans. Assuming you’re not already playing SWTOR, did the Knights of the Fallen Empire reveal pull you back to the game? Vote after the cut!

StevenWilliams3 Snky I checked out the features matrix and there were a dozen entries where Preferred players, and all former subscribers are preferred, had an advantage over f2p.

I’d wager that if more people had that approach of looking at something from various points of view, rather than their own biased perspective, this world would be a much better place.
It often can be difficult to understand why others make the choices they do, when we are viewing the decision from our own perspective and may not fully understand their predicament.
As the saying goes, “Walk a mile in my shoes…”. I try to do this as often as possible by doing exactly what you stated: trying to “understand WHY someone else I may radically disagree with feels the way they do.”
IMHO, being able to realize that one thing shows infiinte wisdom and may help you to become a more rounded and happier person.
Just my 2 cents worth.

Cmoments like this make me want to re-sub. I miss the stand there, 4 bars of 60 skills, type combat. I just hate the swtor UI and hoping the new expansion adds flexibility and depth to the progression. The best part about EQ for me was even though it is not a true ‘sandbox’ I had many things to choose from to invest my time.
With SWTOR (when I played at launch) it just felt like a long line of quests with stories along the way. I didn’t feel like I could go out and explore the planets.

I tried to go back, but … no. Didn’t work. Based on the SWTOR hype for the new Expansion I thought, why
not look back to my Level 55 Inquisitor, my fav character from before,
and see that Revan 55-60 content, see how the game fares. But to be
honest, after 3 days, I didn’t really feel the Force.
First
day I did some old lv 52-54 quests to accustom myself on Makeb again,
Dailies and other stuff. My initial feeling was, how much I really had
gotten out of this 2005 combat system: 4 full skill bars with 60 skills,
a clusterfuck of UI stuff on my screen (yes I know you can rezise, but I
already need glasses, thank you very much). I really feel I grew out of
this Everquest-ish combat sytem of “stand still and press your 40
skills in your 4 skillbars all through”. These days I really value more
dynamic combat with fewer skills, like GW2.
Second… the new
planet the new quests… it wasn’t really thrilling me either. Kill
groups, tag items, go to cave end, press button. I mean, what is the
greatest story good, if the actual gameplay feels like 2005?
Third,
damn those bosses. I don’t know who made the balancing. I thought
spending real good money on good lv 55 gear would allow me to defeat
those instance bosses. But NO. Yes I know, they have “strategy” aka
“press button X now within 2 seconds”. The console boss mechanics.
Something I as PC gamer always hated, those bosses which are like a
timed reaction test, instead of a fight. After 2 bosses (on my level), I
was >>completely<< unable to defeat because of said
consolish mechanics, I quit.
SWTOR, if you wanted to capture me again, you did a lousy job.
I
know some will say, thank god there is real challange. But Wildstar
tried “challange” and go see how well that went. I would be so bold to
call myself a fairly avarge gamer, with years of experience, so I assume
one *should* be able to manage a boss which is supposed to be soloed
without watching a long youtube guide.

More and more I think of it I cannot say I would likely return. All the hype of new story is great especially if it sounds like a decent amount of content but I have heard zip, zero, nothing about many of the game breaking systems that drove me out of the game. Until those are addressed I think it would be a waste of cash for me to return.

Not yet.

Though it did make me patch up and get ready in case I decide to go back.  The cinematic was quite good, but I need more info on what’s in the expansion before I consider if subbing is worth it.

The best part of this is the value. if you don’t have The Hut and Shadow of Revan Xpac you get access to both for the price of a sub. Pretty sweet deal for new folks or those returning after a long break

Yes because 2 reasons – 
1 : i have not played an MMO in a while.
2 : I had a baby like 6 weeks ago and i wanted to play something that had some good traditional dungeon runs and something i could level in my own time when i have less time. The 12 x experience i will abuse so i can try the other story’s i missed. Also staying subbed for 3 months gets me.
Faster leveling which i need now with a baby
A free expansion for the price of the Sub (although i need the SoR expansion) – which means cheap

I also like the fact it sounds like there getting rid of the trash quests and leveling will impact which quests you take depending on your choices – So you have no side missions just missions based on choices so you can get a different flow to your leveling from 60 to 65 each time.
