Star Wars The Old Republic is currently the only story-driven MMORPG out there that is set in the Star Wars universe. It has great and amazing stories, having created a setting and lore that keep players captivated and awed. Yet with the current lack of funding and resources it is a mere shadow of what it could be.
Star Wars The Old Republic (SWTOR) needs to go through a revitalization, as currently it is wasted potential for the companies owning it as well as the current playerbase. With increased funding and more manpower, the MMO could come to rival Elder Scrolls Online, Guild Wars 2 and World of Warcraft. Why? Because of the franchise the game is part of, namely Star Wars.
There are so many people out there who want to play a Jedi or Sith, who want to be a Han Solo-like Smuggler or Boba Fett-inspired Bounty Hunter. Star Wars The Old Republic offers that already, it just needs the right boost to become competitive again in the world of MMO's. It already has an epic and engaging story that offers the player endless possibilities which amazing voiced dialogues and epic cutscenes, it just needs that extra help to surpass itself.
But most importantly, Star Wars The Old Republic is set in the Old Republic era, a part of the Star Wars mythos and lore that people want to see introduced into the new canon. One example of generating awareness, could be by including the MMO and its stories into the new canon (but this is not a necessity, merely a possibility). That way, Disney could grant fans their wish of seeing more of that era and pull in a lot of new players. That said, it is also perfectly acceptable for Disney to continue generating content for SWTOR while it's part of Legends.
It is why we, the players of SWTOR, implore EA to work with Disney to increase the funding and resources for this MMO. The potential for a great and competitive MMO is there, it just needs that extra care and attention in the form of funding, resources and manpower.
NOTE: I am not asking for donations or money nor will I ever do so. If you get an option to make a donation after signing, that is an automatic part of change.org. This has NOT been initiated by me. Supposedly, if you pay X amount of money the site will show it to Y amount of people more. However, I am not asking you to do this, I am not asking anyone to make donations.
