Either that number is fabricated, based on something else or just not even close to that. And I don't believe anything that comes from EA because anyone not a game industry "noob" knows what EA is good for.
And it ain't customer support.
|WE DON'T LIE TO YOU!... UNLESS IT'S ABOUT DLC.|
I'm not seeing where these 1.7 million players are in SWTOR.
We have whole guilds that quit the game on my server and my guild makes up the majority of the Republic side active on now.
And most of us are leaving when GW 2 is out.
On top of that, I don't know anyone who either knows this game exist or plays it.
1.7 Million "Active" subscribers...doubt it...
James Ohlen said something a little bit ago about people "wanting SWTOR to fail"...Not only does it make it hard for me to take him serious when resorting to the average forum trolls taunts of "You're a hater" but I think he just really thinks...that SWTOR is something to be considered "creative".
Apparently, he is not looking at the same game I am.
The story is very repetitive. Even to the point where ALL the class stories are basically the same.
"Chase this person down. Stop this "super weapon."
So maybe I am a hater.
I hate shitty games obviously made with a lack of imagination and effort sheerly for profit.
