So Bioware never gave in to the fans, eh?

That was a complaint put forth by many fans, that SWTOR was plagued by black box engineering. They would not let you do things you'd normally be able to do in other MMOs, they'd not let you know things you'd normally be able to find out in other MMOs.

I also remember someone mentioning that Star Wars feels like a good rival to WOW, if WOW was stuck in BC.

Kind of glad that's still the case, because there was a lot of hubris involved in the managing of that game.

Don't get me wrong, I think STWOR is a great game but it is SO close to WOW, it's jarring to find it behind it on so many aspects. For example, you can mark targets by "/mark 1" but you can't write a macro to keybind to do that for you. People strive to maximise their dps without a dps meter. There's sophisticated mathematical modelling of optimal tank stats by fans but it seems to be based on MDR, so often favours defence (avoidance) over endurance (stamina) and makes no mention of damage smoothing or bursts.

It's a great game (the voice acting and quests still impress, after a year's absence) but it feels like stepping back in time. A sort of gamers' "Life on Mars" or "Ashes to Ashes".


I think it was SW:ToR where quite a few dps specs actually did more dps by purely auto-attacking, because special attacks pushed back the melee swing.

For the 5th time in 2 months, I wrote a ticket and got answered (and fixed if possible) by very gentle GMs within 10 minutes of submitting it...

What's going on, I'm worried!

That sounds like terrible design.

People are angry that Normal modes are still too hard and Flex mode doesn't fix that because it is just throwing people scraps and oh my god the butt hurt.
