As for the less and less people subbing, that seems to be impossible to know based on the recent news of subs which has to have been fairly new due to the first month free and the game not being live until the end of December. So again not sure where all of this info is coming from? If someone has a link that goes against the very recent release of seemingly high early sub numbers that shows a sharp decline I would like to see it. Otherwise I will just have to assume this is just an assumption based on what some "best MMO Guilds" have done.
It all depends on how hardcore you play your games. SWTOR is definitely not design for hardcore, no life, gamers like myself. People finished all the content fast, then got bored. I believe they said the next content patch is still months away, so it could pull back subs then, but GW2 will be out... likely followed by Diablo 3 shortly after.
I think all sub based MMOs will be hurting later this year since pretty much everyone will be playing 1 of those 2 games, if not both. If you enjoy SWTOR, keep playing, as you said.. play games for yourself, not for others.Edited by Murlocke - 2/26/12 at 12:24am
