Star Wars: The Old Republic Jumps to Light Speed With Over 1.7 Millions Active Subscribers | DualShockers

tl;dr 1.7 million active users and growing. Pretty impressive, although I don't know where the hell these users are.

It sold over 2 million copies but has only 1.7 million subscribers. Wouldn't that be a bad sign?

if 1.7m out of 2m player paid for at least one month of subscription then it's pretty damn good.

That is good, I hope the numbers continue to go up.

I canceled already, the account is active until the 19th or 20th and if I start playing I will resub. I haven't played in over a week unless you count putting stuff on the market and sending companions on missions to be playing.

1,7 / 2 = 0,85 => 85% retention rate. It really is damn well for a MMO. Now let's see how the numbers look after March patch :> Too early to tell anything, but at least it "won't be going f2p in 6 months" (which was obvious anyways but trolls are trolls)

I cancelled as well and have 2 days remaining on my account, but I might pick it up in the future if it seems like it'd be more enjoyable. I haven't logged in to actually play in about 2 weeks.

I'm canceling. Really surprised it kept that many people. Game has potential, but there's just so many, mostly little, things wrong with it. It feels so outdated and clunky for a game being released now, not to mention it doing nothing new at all besides lolstory. A year from now it could possibly be something special.

I think what got me was I don't feel like doing raiding and I have been on a winning team of level 15-30 players that beat a team that was mostly level 50 characters so I don't see that there is a challenge to making it to level 50 to pvp when it will be much easier to win when everyone has the same number of abilities.

Winning in Level 50 PvP is more difficult than lowbie PvP. Essentially, gear is more of a factor at 50 than lowbie PvP. I wreck people that are fresh 50s, as in a 3 shot.

raiding is way too easy right now, haven't tried nightmare yet but we one shot most hard mode bosses on our first try this week, only SOA was a bit of a challenge.

I wouldn't assume a retention rate to be valid for at least another month or so. MMOs now take at least three months for the general population to play out the present content, it is still within the period of "newness". And to be fair it probably wouldn't have reached those numbers if Blizzard hadn't dominated the market for the past 6 - 7 years. Here's to hoping it doesn't suffer the same fate and ending up being sEA's "cash cow".

That is why I am not interested in it, the time to get the better gear seems like that will be all the play time for me, even if it took 20 hours of play time to rank up and get the gear it would probably be a month on one character for me.

I'm still enjoying the game, but I actually enjoy the leveling content so that and pvp keeps me going. If I was a raider, I'm not sure that the content would keep me. Ever since wow I refuse to raid because it killed my social life.

As for gearing in pvp, since I didn't have an issue with the bag lottery it wasn't that difficult. I don't think the gear gap should be that drastic from a fresh 50 to BM but every mmo seems to be going this way.
