By all accounts, Swtor is already past its prime and destined to take its place amongst second tier MMOs, basically all the good ones that are not WoW. It’s not really surprising and I believe most people were already predicting such a fate. So, the game is not dead but it’s not the revolution many, myself included, hoped it would be. I think Swtor legacy will be the storytelling which will probably have to be picked up by other MMOs. In short, drab text-based MMOs are in serious danger and yes, there’s a healthy number of people who believe that storytelling is an essential part of the experience. Right up there with loot and raids.
With this I find myself in sort of odd position. I don’t feel all the doom and gloom. I have a healthy guild, we’re raiding, we’re having fun and I’m just enjoying the game. I know not all is well and that some servers are reporting crazy low numbers but me… not seeing one ounce of it.
So here I am today, wishing the best for a game I enjoy a lot and hoping that there won’t be too much damage during the coming transition phase. If ever Swtor was fall apart I would honestly be at a loss as to what to do and I can’t imagine myself going back to a game like WoW.
