    YouTube NerdSlayer. He already details why swtor is dead, and it’s inevitable shutdown

      He never stated the game is dead, he even states it’s very much alive as of Dec 2017. The series is just called Death of a Game is in most cases very hyperbolic to bring in views. Don’t get me wrong though, the quality of his videos are really good, but often the title of his series doesn’t paint the same picture he does in the actual video.

    Star wars was a good game but EA has done a lot of damage to their community member so in return half of the community has already stop supporting this game in it track. What remain of the community on star wars will be really angry if thing continue to get real deep with EA Business.
    I will also put out the same of the rest of the company out there who are suffering the same problem with their community’s (Show care for your people)

    Yet again incorrect for Closers, I said this on the article for this. The Price (2,990 EMP), is for the Nata “Starter” pack. Characters are free, the starter pack just gives you some nice extras like cosmetics, potions, etc. You can buy them for ALL characters.

    I wish SWTOR to shut his free to try a ss down, or they can make it truly f2p

    • Richard on February 19, 2018

      i agree or make it buy2play or something. it not really f2p ether way.

      • Alazne on February 23, 2018

        You are true isnt f2p is a trial mode camouflaged as f2p. F2p means you can be useful for the guilds and for the content of the game. But like is limited to lvl 50 you are useless for nothing.
