The beta plays just like WoW in about every aspect. It is very much in line with the "modern MMO" mold that Blizzard's behemoth has cast. Settings, characters and Star Wars lingo don't change things one bit if the core gameplay feels the exact same.

I would invite anyone who thinks it's like Wow to get off the message board....and go check out firsthand at Bioware website for SWTor. It's not the next coming of christ, but it's not wow. It's like saying Lord of the Rings is too much like the Matrix becuase they both had 3 movies. Different Genre's.

Additionally Wow's genre allowes for them to expand into flying mounts, and find new creative ways to do additional dungeon crawls etc...been there...

Where does Star Wars have potential to grow into....Space....just like wow? I don't think so. It's way to early for me even to comment too much on this as much as I have. I've read reviews of those who were allowed 2 days access at Bioware, to play the game as they saw fit, and loved it, but I have to take it with a grain of salt as I'd say anything too and give rave reviews to play a next gen MMO long before the general populace lol.
what he said.

Does WoW let you have NPC companions, that you can task with missions/crafting/sidekicking?

Where in WoW do you fly around in space blowing up starships with lasers exactly?

etc..

Wow still a year away? It feels like with all the hype over the past few years that it should be released this year.

Well it says it could be out in July. My guess is closer to Dec for holiday shopping though.

All the videos I have seen so far have made the game look very casual. Wish they had just made another KotoR singleplayer but of course that wouldn't make them more money I guess.

Yeah the companion system and space combat are just like WOWs, not to mention how bounty hunters and jedi work...oh wait....

Seriously have you even read anything on the game? Or did you just watch like a 3 minute clip and make your judgment because it has a hud and buttons it must be like WOW.

The game is NOTHING like WOW.

In case you didn't notice (because I didn't either), it is Fiscal Year 2012. That's calendar year 2011. So, no more than nine months away hopefully. Maybe EA will give us a summer treat.

I've been playing the game for the past two weeks in the beta.

While the games do have their differences, your statement is much more wrong than his.

Keeping it within the MMO genre, GW is nothing like wow. Age of Conan is nothing like wow. EVE is nothing like wow. There are plenty of VERY different MMO's that you could correctly claim are nothing like wow within the realm of MMO's.

Considering his comment was about his own taste in video games and was also rather broad, you need to relax a bit. I could see you being upset if he said, "lol only idiot wow fanboys like this game because they are identical." But he didn't say that.

Maybe you haven't read enough about the game. Even the games own forums have collapsed into a cesspool because the fans are furious the developers have not really delivered on a lot of the things that would further distance this game from other MMO's.

Well, I guess I didn't need to write my post. Oh well.
