Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Update 6.1 -- A Disappointment.

in gaming •  2 months ago 

I've been waiting for this update since the day the latest expansion came out in October.


In true SW:TOR style, they decided to unleash the story aspect of the expansion in teeny tiny specks that get you into the story then dump you out of it just as quickly by finishing it too damned soon.

I miss the days of gaming companies releasing FULL expansions. Not this ten minutes at a time hoo-haa. Even WoW expansions are released in substantial chunks that actually give you something to do for a few months.

Or I could just be irritated right now. I had a bad weekend and decided to try and wash it all away by immersing myself into another world in another galaxy far, far away instead of screeching at my own writing.


I started with my beautiful Aethya the Sorcerer as I always do. Though I really wish I could remake her, but she has titles that I'll never be bothered to get again. She was the best Healer in PVP at one point and has all of the related titles... but with no Australian servers anymore PVP is a thing of the past unfortunately.

Why remake her? Because she flirted with KHEM VAL and now they're apparently TOGETHER and she's LIGHT SIDE and ohmygod it's just wrong. Should've stuck with Andronikos the Space Pirate.

Anyway. Let's just never talk to Khem again, okay. She was drunk that day.


As though to intensify my disappointment, it was quickly discovered that the devs literally created only 5 minutes of story content.

Five. Minutes.

It seems they were too focused on creating a new player home this time around. That's great. Great. But I'm more interested in the story rather than spending millions of credits on decorating yet another house.

I get it, guys! You're out of money and you want people to throw their cash at the Cartel Market for over-priced furniture. I get it.


On the off-chance that my Sorcerer was bugged and that there was actually more content after the five minute mark, I leapt onto my agent and tried her out instead.


Five. Minutes.


My sorcerer's face is accurate.

I am very disappointed.

There's not much else I can say.

So. Disappointed. Right now.


Until next time!

Thank you for stopping by!

Good old Khem Val. My main was also Sorcerer with force lightning spec. I romanced the Twilek Jedi girl, whats her name. Somehow I lost the drive to play the game again, I haven't even checked the new expansion. I think I might be over with Old Republic.

Ashara! :)

With the way things are going right now, if you ever get the urge to play the latest expansion I'd personally wait til the -next- one has begun its teeny tiny incremental release.

I was obsessed with this game for the longest time. But when the Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion was released with month-by-month Chaper releases... it couldn't hold my interest for long.

Re-subbed last year and finally got to enjoy the entirety of Eternal Throne and Fallen Empire all at once, experienced chronologically in my own time as they should be, and loved them! Only to now be devastated that this next expansion -- Onslaught -- is also chapter-ified!

If you can call five minutes a chapter. Haha. :D

I'm honestly not sure if this game will last much longer. Sadly. I've enjoyed it a lot, despite my irritation with the developers. :)

I felt like starting off my day by reading something tht will grip me and came to your home page in hopes of a third instalment of your story Aethya's End, but nada...which is okay, creative minds should never be pressured so that they remain truly creative. But then I saw this post and in it you say

I started with my beautiful Aethya the Sorcerer as I always do.

So, now it is time for me to expose my ignorance. Does this have anything to do with your story? Is there some kind of link? I never play games, so the above does not mean anything to me and I am a bit confusd.

I'm sorry! I'm planning on posting the next chapter in a day or so. It's ready for sharing now, but I'm trying to keep a good amount of space between each installment so that I can work ahead a bit with my polishing. :D I'm currently three chapters ahead -- I'd like to be a few more.

As for Aethya the Sorcerer... in games that I play I tend to name my characters after things in my imaginary world. This game has absolutely nothing to do with my story or universe.

I'm sorry for any confusion!

It definitely is not a problem. Actually, I bring my characters into so much of what I do that I can empathise with what you do. Anyway, getting confused now and then is good, it makes us think...

I like to think that one of the curators was also disappointed by this patch and was like, "Yes, yes! So much, yes!" whilst reading this.
