They really should have had this from the beginning rather than the crappy on-rails one they had before. Still not gonna bring me back to the game though lol.

 

Now all they need is a pve element (see: Star Wars: Galaxies) and I might pop in and say hello again.

 

Kinda cool, but this makes losing the local Australian servers sting harder.

 

I am sure if this was in on launch it would have been buggy and no fun…

As for no Aussie servers I don’t notice much of a change… Been playing MMO’s for about 13 years and going from 350ms in some to 70ms gave me hardly anything to be excited about. If that was for a FPS then it would be another story.

But all in all no matter what people get they will always complain. Never a lot of “I <3 this ……" on any forums these days.

This pretty much, I guess I really wanted knights of the old republic 3 4 and 5 rather than this. Got quite a few hours out of it though.
