Last night, a few people from my guild and quite a few from The church of Alvis tried to go take down some world bosses on Tatooine for the Rakghoul event title. We did not suceed. For one, the bosses have ridiculous long spawn times that means that if you miss a spawn you’re pretty much screwed. It felt a lot like going after Azuregos in Vanilla WoW with all the good and bad that entails.
But we did have a ton of fun! One of the bosses is situated in a pvp zone and of course, the Empire was there to provide entertainment. I’m really not a fan of pvp most of the time but yesterday, it was tons of fun trying to take down a world boss while fighting off the Empire trying to mess with us. It was chaotic, it was laggy, it was messy, but it was also one of the best night I had in a long time with a completely random world event. I know quite a few players miss the days of Vanilla WoW and these kind of events and I’m here to tell you it can still happen, today, in 2012.
I’m writing this to fight off some of the negativity I’m seeing around the game lately. I get that Swtor is not a perfect game and that it let down quite a few people, myself included for a moment, who wanted it to be their perfect game. That I get, what I don’t get is how according to some people the game is the worst thing to happen to humankind. According to them, the game is doomed and is currently dying.
So in a deliberate attempt to prove them wrong and to prove to them that quite a few people still enjoy the game. I’m going to list a few blogs and guild sites full of people who still enjoy this game. Swtor has true potential for greatness if you allow yourself to see it and I hope these blogs might help someone turn that frown around.
