Let me say first that 1.2 is a good time to try this game, since many improvements have been made. The patch is keeping my interest just above cancel-level. But I'm skeptical of this game's future, apart from diehard star wars fans. The postponement of rated warzones I think was the last straw for many of the 'hardcore' guilds. I know I'm on one of the most populous servers in this game, and primetime fleet has decreased from 220+ a couple months ago, to 140ish.
Have to be honest, game is boring me. Level design is a problem. Lifeless planets with drab dialog and writing apart from the main story anyway. Yay.
I had suspicions immediately though when I first got to Tython and noticed that the four padawan NPCs at the first base practicing were all copies of each other. Same clothes, same hair, same face, same saber. Lazy.
Another huge complaint; Why do the Fleet hubs exist? They are uninteresting, and also direct copies of each other. Compare Republic and Imperial Fleet to Stormwind and Orgrimmar. Don't make me laugh. Another aspect of this failure are the existence of Kaas City and Coruscant. Two fully fleshed out cities that you pass through briefly as a levelling area. Why aren't they the player hubs in this game? Makes no sense.
Their immaturity/arrogance/lack of talent shows once again with this plague quest. Did they really not forsee that everyone would stand in a huge huddle, silently, while this stuff is spread? I couldn't believe it last night. I logged in and stood there like an idiot for 10 minutes, then though 'wow, this is some sweet gameplay' and logged out in disgust. Come ON.
To end this mini whine on a good note, the talk about the newer content in 1.2 is pretty positive. And the pvp is still engaging.
I'm jumpin' in my Falcon, Wookie at my side
