SWTOR is struggling harder than a bounty hunter in a Sarlacc’s gut. And it’s going to take more than an exploding jetpack and a concussion grenade to blast it back out. We think there are ten things that Bioware need to do to stop a slow slide into the backwaters of Alganon. Some of them are easy fixes. Others are going to take serious work.
According to the official (and highly suspect) numbers, Star Wars: The Old Republic had 1.3 million players at the end of April. That should mean that it’s way too early to indulge in the favorite hobby of forum users everywhere and proclaim the title dead. That said, the game faces some serious problems: a lack of content at the level cap, and a lack of people. For a MMO that cost so much to develop, that’s not a good thing. At all.
