This is one big update, regardless of whether it should have been in at launch or not. Perhaps some may not come back but there is no question that the majority of the 1.7 million playing now will more than likely stick around to experience all this.

When you couple that with the ability of species unlocks that get more people trying new classes and the trial (which so many people hesitant to shell out for a sub want) that bodes very well.

Even if they had only 1 million subs, thats still as much as the next four mmos in line.. Rift included.

@real65rcncom. Re your last paragraph, always makes me laugh when people quote as fact information (like subscription numbers) that are complete guesses (and wildly inaccurate) but stated as fact.

LOL I'm not sure I even want to know where that lightsaber is coming from. The angle... it's all types of wrong.

Heh, he said they have a PvP team. That made me snicker a little bit.

Glad to see they're adding in the content that got cut when EA forced them to ship it for the holidays though, it looks pretty good.

Could care less about subs.

There hasn't been a good MMO on the market since pre patch 2.4 WoW.

Rift's devs don't know how to design classes.

ToR under-delivered big time. We did one Op and the game kept crashing for our RC so we all quit.

Wow must be an unusual game, apparently there are at least 400 top 100 guilds

@(Unverified) I love how there is always someone who says WoW sucked after patch x.xx as if its fact.

The reality is that is probably the date that you lost a server first kill or something and now "the game sucks". There's always a story.

@(Unverified) If you start tracking 'top 100' guilds back in 2005 then yes, I could easily see the top 100 churning over the course of 6+ years so that far more than 100 guilds have seen the 'top 100'.

On a side note, there seem to be lots of deleted posts at the top of this thread. The hall monitors are working overtime in SWTOR threads, it seems.

I petition massively to rename to Masswtor. I like reading about loads of different games :(.

Tell those other games to release more info more often, then.

This may sound crazy, but occasionally a lot of newsworthy things happen all at once for a given game, especially if said game is a having major update.

@Irem UNPOSSIBLE! IREM IS OFF THE RAILS!! :D

(Seriously, we'll go days without TOR news. There was a big embargo lift for TOR today, hence several articles on it. I'm sure we'll go back to a scarcity of TOR updates in a few days. Hehe. *flees*)

You're right, who will write all those articles about the Swtor team patting themselves on the back every 2 weeks.

So.. personal story still not being worked on them... so much for a story driven MMO.

It was revealed at the Guild Summit that we'll be getting a story update later this year.

Maybe you didn't watch the guild summit "More Story" is in fact planned to be released in 2012, a response directly to a question like yours.
