They tried to do too much IMO.

The story, the pvp, the promises. All of it just failboated.

Biggest issue was ....to many servers.

This game would have been fine, health wise, if they had the number of servers they have now at release. Way too many dead servers for too long. When you have a peak of 3 people on your home fleet in a 24 hour time frame, you have problems. I was lucky enough to have started on the Shadowlands and our guild Impetus was top by a mile. People got tired waiting for content and then the player base to recruit our last raid slot as always could never be found. This was the same problem we had from WoW just don't have a dedicated 9/10 or 8th in SWTOR's case.

For me it was simply the fact that it's an MMO. Nothing will ever compare to your first MMO - if you first played EQ, then nothing compares to EQ, if it was wow, nothing will compare, etc. For me it was vanilla wow. They've improved the game in almost every way but it's not the same experience.

I never got that immersive feeling from swtor, something wow was great at. I didn't feel like I was in a galaxy that I could explore, I was in a series of levels(planets) separated by loading screens.

Other than having voice over dialog swtor added nothing to the genre.

For me - and yes I'm being serious - it was in no small part that fuging droid on my ship.

I had problems with aspects of the game play but that obnoxious bastard said the same things over and over and over to the point that if I had to go to my ship I would cut the sound down until I was past him.

If that had been my only beef it wouldn't have been more than something to laugh at, but with the other problems it just became the straw that broke the camels back. He became the symbol for every obnoxious thing in the game.
