It wasn’t so long ago that I wrote a post explaining why I was still subscribed to swtor even though I wasn’t playing that much. I meant every word that I wrote and the only thing that has changed has been time. I realised that I couldn’t justify paying a subscription to something that I wasn’t playing at all.
Swtor was a ton of fun, it really was, however it was an mmorpg. The mechanics and everything were just too similar to warcraft. When I was burned out of warcraft I didn’t want to play swtor either, when I wasn’t I was back to playing warcraft. Part of what kept me playing warcraft was my friends, playing swtor was a lonely business. Another part of it was concrete goals. I’ve been playing warcraft for nearly two and a half years now and I have a list of what I’d like to accomplish, I actually posted about that the other week. It also just feels like there’s more to do in warcraft. I know that the comparison isn’t fair as warcraft’s been out eight years and has had three expansion packs. If it’s any consolation swtor’s graphics are better. With swtor I was levelling from the beginning and there’s only so much questing I can do before the novelty of the voice acting wears off.
Anyway, I cancelled my subscription today and made the modifications to this blog turning it just into a warcraft blog. I will, of course, blog about other games occasionally, but the main focus is no longer split. I had high hopes for swtor but at the end of the day it just couldn’t hold my attention. There wasn’t enough hours in the day to play them both and without the social connection swtor was always going to lose.
