Also, who cares about end game. Do you realise that the majority of players are not playing to reach endgame. We're playing to enjoy the game and the Star Wars experience.
So many of us are going to be coming back each day, month after month and enjoying this game. I think you are the one misunderstanding things. Bioware is going to create a truly awesome game which will be a good competition towards World of Warcraft.
Hey if you want to disagree, by all means, but why should others be ashamed of their opinions? I could very well say the same to you! I agree, BioWare has time and again pushed out really good games, majority of which have been single player games. On that note, regardless of developer, a game still has the potential to flop, no matter how many successful ones were released before it.
From your comments, it's clear that you've never touched an MMO before: endgame not important? Certainly, if it was a single player game, but it's not. If you're playing only for story, BioWare might as well make it a single player experience. After all, you'll be paying a monthly sub for a game that has no longevity (assuming that it's a monthly sub, even BioWare has yet to detail the subscription model for TOR).
Since BioWare's developing this as an MMO and if there's nothing to keep players coming back for more, who are all the while paying a monthly subscription, I find it hard to believe that anyone with a good deal of common sense would continue paying for a single player game under the guise of an MMO.
Nobody's saying it's set in stone, but based on the info and impressions from BioWare, it's a perfectly sound conclusion that TOR doesn't look like it's going to be a successful MMO in the long run, something a lot of other MMOs on the market have suffered from.
, I hope BioWare just puts out more information to clear up the fog. I love Star Wars, but I'm not putting my money into a game if there's no real reason to do so. I would sooner get Dragon Age II considering I know more about that than TOR.
