Are Internet trolls out to get SWTOR? It would appear so based on some of the bad publicity the game has gotten as well as other trollish activity such as bug reports for glitches that don’t exist and players claiming they were banned for odd reasons only to have BioWare staff come in and confirm they were not banned at all. It’s all a bit odd but it seems like there are some trolls out there just looking to make BioWare/SWTOR look bad. Maybe they are disgruntled SWG players? /shrug
Remember I brought you that story about the Technorati blogger who was hating on SWTOR? Well, there’s a new story that’s a bit of a counter to this one but they have more of their facts straight. Team Asunder Magazine brings us The Internet vs. Bioware: How Trolls Set Out To Destroy The Old Republic.
They’re onto something here. It does seem like there is a quite a bit of hate mongering going around. I mean, I am far from one to diss someone for not liking a game. While I will try anything once, I’m particular about the games I stick with and I don’t fault anyone for not liking a game.
What’s weird is that there seems to be a whole team out to get BioWare/SWTOR for some reason not specified. The author of the above-quoted article doesn’t even like BioWare or their games so this isn’t a “fanboy” defending the game. He goes onto show proof and evidence of these extreme BioHaters and it makes for a pretty interesting read for sure.
