SWTOR: Knights of the Fallen Empire will be out on October 27th, 2015.
The past few days of SWTOR news have brought out a lot of varying opinions and arguments amongst players. What’s more important? Who is right? PvP, story, RP, etc. People want to be right in their opinions, and sometimes this unfortunately leads to trash talking other players and undermining others for what they like.
I think the new changes look interesting and fun. When the new expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire, comes out in October, it doesn’t really matter how I’m playing if I’m having fun with it. In the meantime, it’s only June, and there’s a lot of time in between to be patient, get more information, and possibly provide constructive criticism to the game developers, if it’s not too late.

When I go to community cantinas, it is very exciting to meet different people, regardless of how they play the game. I may ask what server they play on and what class, but I’ve never encountered or seen people that argue amongst themselves about their opinions of what should happen or be put into the game in person. It’s just fun.
Obviously, I know I’ve poked fun at people at cantinas asking inconsequential questions (Ex: “Will I get so-and-so color lightsaber?”) but it’s nothing like what you see on the internet. On the internet people are ruthless, calling each other bad names, saying nasty things, all because someone disagrees with something about a game they both like.
I have not really encountered any confrontational remarks (this week) about the new content, but I hope people will take into consideration what other people think, and not simply jump down their throats because they don’t like what they say. You can have friends with varying opinions, and that’s okay. I respect players that like different things in the game, even if it is not what I like or care about.
For example, my boyfriend also plays SWTOR, but we definitely have different opinions. He thinks the game is moving towards a single player RPG and less of an MMO and that it may not be good for the future of the game. Like I’ve stated before, I think it’s still going to be a fun game no matter what. I’m not going to argue to death with him about it! I’m not going to break up or say horrible, mean things to him because he cares about different parts of the game than me.

I think people should put into perspective the things they say and do on the internet. I know it’s much easier to be mean to others because of a sense of anonymity (or whatever the reason is people troll) but in real life if a friend, or even a stranger, had a differing opinion about a game, we’d likely be more excited they simply play the same game. We should all be friendlier to other players in the same game, because it’s a huge thing we have in common.
