yay and nay survey: TOR

It's nearing the release (relatively) of the MMO. With (currently) only a few months left to go, I'm just getting a feel of us people here. There seems to be as many for SWTOR as against it, here on LF.

So a public poll, folks. Vote and cast your opinion.

I'm a yay, because it kinda looks like it might have a bit of a chance to be sorta fun at times.

Yes, no question.

Looks awesome to me. I've been following it since it was first announced, and since I happen to like MMOs...yeah.


Chapter 12 of A Soul Adrift is out.

Short stories:
T'katlu: On the planet Felucia, a young apprentice of the Dark Side thinks back to the beginning of her training as she lies in wait for her prey...

All the Time: After four years in the Unknown Regions, the Exile returns to the known galaxy to visit an old enemy.

Broken: A master of the Dark Side finds himself about to lose the one thing he cares about--and he will do anything to stop her from endangering herself.

Ahhh...excited because it's a Star Wars game. But dislike because I don't like MMOs...and I wanted KotOR3. :P

I'm going to try it out, though.

Yay, the only negative feelings I have are the fact they won't be releasing a an SPRPG KotOR III, but that has nothing to do with the quality or Story of tOR, I think it'll be good.

Nay for me. It doesn't have a star wars look or feel for me. Looks like just some random space MMO that just happens to have lightsabers(which, no offense, but the lightsabers look lame. I like the TFU, JK:Academy, Kotor & RotS Video Game lightsabers better)

Definately. I don't have anything against MMO's and I never cared either way about getting a KotOR 3, and I think it looks good, (the lightsabers do look a kinda crappy, but thats not going to stop me from playing it, everything else looks good) And besides, it'll sorta be like a KotOR 3 except on a WAY bigger scale.

Nay. The problem being that everything looks like it is from Episodes 4,5, and 6. The Republic troops look like clones. The Sith look like Imperials. In the Hope trailer the main soldier also bore too much resemblance to Jango Fett. It seems they took a rich unexplored environment of the Star Wars universe and filled it with Episode 4,5, and 6 looking characters.

Unsure, pending to nay. I love the fact that KotOR franchise has not been forgotten but I despise that KotOR 3 was relinquished. That and I dislike MMOs so, given the opportunity, I might play it but I have my doubts it'll be anywhere as enjoyable as the first two games.

@ fallen guardian: you forgot the PT as well.

I fit in either unsure or changed my mind since I used to be totally 100% nay. Just in general because I don't much know or care about mmo games. We'll just have to see if the distaste of unoriginality is enough to keep me completely away. I'm curious enough to maybe try it out but have serious doubts about it all the same.

Care to elaborate?

I've seen similar things in threads regarding WoW here. I honestly believe most people 'hate' mmo's because a monthly fee is required to play.
However, if you play RPG's or Shooter, you'd probably buy a new game every month or two, money that is no put into a game you'll constantly play.

It's like buying a small, cheap little house from your own money every year or five or normal family home (for 20 years) which requires you to take a mortgage. One is not necessarily better then the other.

I'm a student and don't have much money to spend, but I beta-tested WoW and then and there concluded it was a good game but I lacked the finances to play it. Now that I do, I play it.
The montly fee doesn't make it bad.

The C.E.O. of Activision is thinking about asking fees for playing COD in multiplayer. One of the loading messages is "Free online play included with every black ops game."

@ Ztalker ^^

just a personall preferance i guess, i dont like the MMO style of gameplay,
Does not appeal to me one bit. It may be a great game storywise and whatever ,
but because its an MMO style of game...it does most deffinetly not tickle my fancy lol
And because it happened to probly the greatest star wars series ever made ( my beloved kotor....sigh...) lol yeh its makes me phisically ill and causes aggressive vomiting and in some casses ...sneezing?? lol so there is my elaboration

Absolutely YES. If I can't have KotOR III then I'll take TOR. I see a break from much of the MMO mold. There's far more emphasis on story than other MMO's(not saying that others don't HAVE story, just that it's not their focal point). Your "pets" can do things for you that you don't want to do(diplomacy missions, crafting, salvaging). You can actually LOSE your "pets" with decisions you make. Yet it still keeps some elements that I enjoy as an MMO player. MASSIVE landscape. Loads of content. Cooperative play.

Most people who dislike MMO's do so on principle alone(please note that I did say most). They dislike the monthly fee. They dislike playing with other players(sure there are morons who grief, but there's a lot more really good players out there who will help you for no other reason than they WANT to help). They hear horror stories and think that's the norm. And you know some have tried ONE MMO(like WoW) and thought.. I don't like this one, so I won't like any of them. It's like playing one computer game and deciding that all games are like sim city and because you didn't like that you won't like any others.

I'm pretty disappointed that they decided to go the MMO route on the series... especially 300-some years after the events of KOTOR. If it were set immediately after TSL, I may have considered buying it, but I really wish it was another single-player RPG.

I kinda hope it crashes and burns and they make the sequel everyone has been waiting for.

I'm in the "No" crowd. The reasons:
1) It doesn't really look like the "Old" Republic with those ship, Jedi and trooper designs.
2) It's an MMO, which is just not my cup of tea when it comes to video game genres for many reasons I don't care to repeat.

Still, I hope those who do decide to play it will have a good time. As for me, I'll stick to single player RPGs (and other genres) which don't require monthly subscriptions in order to play.

I started off firmly in the 'nay' camp, then moved to the 'surely it can't be that bad' camp, then the 'yay' camp, and now I don't know where I am.

I'll definitely be making use of the free trial period, at least.

I don't like how they've gone from the 'we took inspiration from the films' position, as they had with KOTOR, to this position of 'We've just taken everything from the films and changed it slightly', but if it plays well enough I might be convinced to give it longer than the trial.

But it's a rather colossal 'might'.

Yay by default though I voted unsure since I have no MMORPG experience. LucasArts has no other games I'm interested in and as far as I can tell it's not likely that LucasArts will publish a Star Wars game I'm interested in playing in the near future. Thus TOR will be the only way for me to get a fresh Star Wars gaming fix cuz replaying KotOR and TSL only makes me wish for KotOR 3 and after 3+ years of that torture I'm through. Through I say!!!

I'd much rather like kotor3, so no. I'll give it a chance if people who've played it think it's outstandingly amazing, but if it's as unentertaining as Star Wars Galaxies I'm probably not buying it.
