Maybe we should have held off on doing a Stat of the Day until after BioWare posted a big infographic about Star Wars: The Old Republic. We’ll blame Yoda for not teaching us more about seeing the future.

As I was told during my press tour last week for Shadow of Revan, the SWTOR team tracks a lot of numbers, and they’re all on display in this new info dump, right down to the exact number of players of each class: 6,128,504 of my highest-level class, the Republic trooper. Over 57 million characters have been created altogether, along with over 1.7 billion kills in PvP, about 6.8 million ships, and 635 million hours of total playtime.

Four billion NPCs have also met their end, which is double the population of Alderaan at the time when Grand Moff Tarkin blew it up. That’s a lot of voices to cry out and suddenly be silenced. I hope you can all live with yourselves, you murderers.

    And this is considered news why?

    I guess my main concern/ question here is whether or not the game is worth playing?

      With its F2P restrictions? No it is not worth playing.

        The F2P restrictions aren’t as awful as everyone makes them out to be. Sure, you get shafted when it comes to crafting, pvping or raiding, but you can still enjoy the game’s story (its strongest point, IMO) to the fullest without paying a cent. And if you like it, you can always purchase unlocks with in-game credits or real money.

        Try it out and make the decision for yourself.

      I been playing off and on since launch. Its quite a fun game. Even without sub. Lots to do, and you can earn some cartel coins just for doing quests. Best bet is find someone with a sub and get a friend code it gives ya a few unlocks and extra inventory space for each character you create. Got my kid a sub, and on weekends you cant get him off the game.

      it is F2P limited but it fun to play for a while. You should try out other games that you may enjoy than this game. I can’t say It not worth it or worth it but choose wisely on playing this game. well for anybody that don’t like F2P restrictions should not bother with this game at all.

HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY?
