This is a special episode of SWTOR news focusing in the current subscription numbers released by EA and what they really mean.
There is a lot of talk about SWTOR, how it compares to WoW, and how it compares to other MMORPGs. This brings up the age-old question of whether or not it can be accurately compared to other games. We’ve talked about it before here on the site but I think what it really comes down to is the sheer fact that while you can compare certain elements of SWTOR to certain elements of other games, it simply isn’t accurate at all to compare the entire game package itself to another game because there has yet to ever be another game just like SWTOR.
Since it stands alone in its genre for how and what content in presented, it wouldn’t be fair to make an overall comparison- positive or negative- of SWTOR versus another MMORPG.
Anyway, here we have episode 4 of SWTOR News which brings up some stats and points about SWTOR subscription base and numbers. It’s worth watching if you have some time to spare.
The roughly 15 minute video has highlights, updates and more about SWTOR and recent SWTOR news. It’s a great way to recap if you haven’t been keeping up with what’s happening. Check it out:
