The Death Of SWTOR

What a difference four months makes. It seems in MMO terms this is an eternity. The current state of SWTOR is somewhat sick and according to the latest reports players are leaving not in the hundreds but in the hundreds of thousands.

Our SWTOR guild has been steadily losing players during this time. The reasons are numerous but probably the prime reason is lack of content and disillusionment with the "endgame". One other catalyst for player dissatisfaction was the Guild Wars 2 Beta weekend. After it was complete we gathered together on TeamSpeak and wondered how we will get through the coming months until the full game is released.

Who would have thought a simple beta weekend would have highlighted with crystal clarity the deficiencies of another MMO.
