I think it all comes down to friends. If you like hanging out and playing with friends then you will find things to do because the hanging out part is always more enjoyable then the content. If you solo 100% then it will feel just like when you finish a regular solo game where you usually just move on to other games.

This is a very positive spin.
The game lacks soo much compaired to its competition but if you are entertained easy then it does not matter.

Yea, I know he gets his, it's how you get a title i think. But having to go talk to him is like hearing my droid every time I enter the ship. I want to punch them both in the face.

Im having a blast PVPing the player join exploit is going to be fixed next patch. PVP in this game is actually a good time on my Medic Trooper.

I have yet to get to max level, but I have a small group of people to hang around with. I'm 42 on an Inquistor and 43 on a trooper, and then I have a Bounty Hunter in the higher teens I enjoy, a Jedi Knight in the Mid 20s I enjoy, and an operative in the lower 20s I enjoy. So I'll have a fair amount to do still. I certainly play less than I used to when the game was just out, but I don't have any great desire to return to WoW (in fact, I'd like to quit but I got suckered into the yearly pass thing and it's not at the point of wanting to call Blizzard to do it) and no desire to really get into any upcoming MMOs.

SWTOR has the same thing as most every other MMO: PVP, raids, dailies, and alts. The problem is that the mechanics in SWTOR aren't as compelling or polished as other games, and so they're not as fun to do repeatedly. They don't keep people coming back for more.

The one area that SWTOR excels in is the single player story, but the flaw in that (other than it's a single player feature in an multiplayer game) is that the story ends. For some people, it ends in one month, others 3 month or 6 months. But at some point, it ends, and when that happens, the game needs a hook to keep the player from leaving.

Bioware needs to fix a lot of things before adding more content. They added that rakghoul line, that didn't halt the complaints because broken gameplay is still broken no matter how much content you throw at people.

Bioware recently stated that they were surprised at how popular PVP was. My opinion on why that is is because it is VERY convenient. Push queue, receive WZ. It's essentially LFG for PVP. This is why people clamor for LFG for FP and such. You can either PVP every 5 minutes anywhere in the universe, or sit in fleet for 2 hours looking for a healer.

The Imperial Agent storyline is freaking FANTASTIC!

But even the lure of the other storylines barely gets me to log in because all the other glaring flaws with the game. It's like Bioware completely ignored all the innovations that other MMOs have built into their games to release this substandard product.

It's a shame because I waited for so long for this game and it failed to live up to even my worst expectations.

So, what are the things that you do at endgame in MMOs other than SWTOR that keep you subscribing? What are the activities you engage in that SWTOR would benefit from?

If you aren't into end game raiding and pvp why play an MMO? That seems to be the standard. What do some of you think there should be at cap? I see no constructive feedback when it comes to endgame in any MMO. There is a lot to do, just because you don't want to do it makes it seem like more a you problem than a game problem.
