There are many goals that need to be taken into consideration when it comes to sustaining an MMORPG. And after running for many years, there’s a number of Star Wars: The Old Republic players who are wondering if the game can ever return to its glory days.
While the MMORPG was a hyped-up game when it was first revealed, as the game released, and time went on, players started to notice a drastic dip in quality. PvP is unplayable in many players’ minds, and the story content can be good, but is inconsistent. This has caused an exodus from the game. And for those on Reddit who still play it, a single question looms:
“What are some things that Bioware/EA could do to help revitalize the player base?”
It’s an honest question, and a fair one. And one that many Redditors are happy to answer. Some don’t think it can be fixed, stating that EA would actually have to “invest in the game” for that to happen. Others are a little more optimistic, but feel that the game needs long-term content to truly get Star Wars: The Old Republic back on track.
Some think that salvation lies in Free-To-Play. As of now, the game is Free-To-Play, but with heavy restrictions. Many on Reddit believe that the game should be full on F2P in order to get people back. Others think story is the answer, while some believe bug fixes and adjustments might bring people back, it’s as varied as the players themselves.
The question still looms though, can Star Wars: The Old Republic win the players back?
