I think it's important to note the decline in Star Wars: The Old Republic's subscription numbers, which yesterday we found out dropped to 1.3 million, off its high of 1.7 million. Now, of course, we don't know this quarter's WoW numbers yet (and we may not, if Blizzard decides not to release them), but it's notable that this "WoW killer" isn't really turning out.
Now, I say this not as a victory dance of "we won" or some other stupid epeen contest, but as a nod to the fact that two well-produced games can survive in the same marketplace -- and that a game doesn't have to have 10 million or more players to be a success. WoW has its charm, and so does SW:TOR. Is one better than the other? In my opinion, yes -- but at the end of the day they're each different.
It should also be clear that EA feels the same way. It's going to keep supporting SW:TOR. And why not? 1.3 million people doing anything together is a cause to support.
I'm aware that updated Outland and Northrend are future goals as far as Blizzard has stated but has a time table for this been released? Whenever they finally do update those zones would it be best to just revamp them across the board, making those zones match the current patch? Or would it be better if the zones leveled and changed with the player? Personally, I'd prefer the latter.
