The release window they're launching in is generally reserved for games that developers think are not going to satisfy the expectations of their consumers. I've been genuinely interested in TOR for both personal and business-related reasons since they announced it. I must say though that everything Bioware has done since then has slowly, but surely, lowered my expectations of it. Most of the talk in the industry about TOR seems to centre on the gameplay being nowhere close to being ready for launch. Can Bioware fix this by the time they launch? Sure, theoretically they could make the combat at least functional. However, as Dead Island suggests, when you tease a game with some fantastic looking cinematic trailers without showing off any actual gameplay for an absurd amount of time after that, you're basically telegraphing to everyone that your game probably isn't as exciting, polished, or even functional as consumers will be happy with. I hope TOR proves me wrong, but I fear it will become just another RIFT/AoC/WAR/every other MMO released since WoW became the juggernaut of the industry.

There's plenty of actual gameplay footage on youtube for each class and hours of pvp footage for most classes. Looks good to me. I'll be there on Dec. 20th. The NDA for beta testers is a little questionable at this point but Bioware says its a story driven game and don't want it ruined. Good enough for me.

I wish that !@#$ would have never been started lol. All you see in livestreams is people "flipping tables". It was funny the first few times, but now it's quite annoying.

I agree. If Bioware doesn't make the endgame kickass (or existent for that matter), then it will fall like the rest of them.
