Remember what SOE did to Star Wars Galaxies? They destroyed it, that's what they did. They destroyed a great game in an effort to make it more like World of Warcraft. In other words, they took a complex system and tried to make it "simple" as World of Warcraft was. They took a franchise which shouldn't be able to lose (it's Star Wars; you can shovel shit to fans like myself as long as it says Jedi on it and we'll eat it up), tried to emulate WoW, and killed it.
What was I confronted with when I logged on after yesterday's pre-Cataclysm functionality patch? A giant, toy like wizard to help me pick my talents, which are less than half of what they used to be.
Thanks. No thanks. I doubt I'm going to continue this little resurgence of WoWing. I'm tired of Blizzard "dumbing-down" my game. I'll give it a closer look tonight, but I think I'm over WoW.
