They just released a patch which really should have been in the game from the start, the things that were missing from it were the reasons that most people left, unfortunately those people have leveled at least one character to 50 and now can't be arsed to come back.
In the EU and peak time most servers say STANDARD and there are a couple of LIGHT. No heavies. This could be fixed with a simple server merge but nothing like that seems to be in the works.
To be honest even with all of it's flaws the game is brilliant. The people who have unsubbed are pretty much no lifers who powered to 50 and then cry about a lack of end game content, despite the game currently having 3 raids (all with hard modes) and the majority of the flashpoints have a hard mode most of which are harder than the raids. Then there's dailies and of course, leveling alts.
Yeah if you spend the majority of your free time gaming and you only play one game then that wont be enough to keep you happy, but what mmo has more end game activities than that, other than EVE. And I say other than EVE because I don't really count it in MMO discussions, since most people aren't smart enough to play it.
WoW endgame was raiding a few nights a week and leveling alts the rest of the time, same as SWTOR only the legacy system makes alt leveling more fun. The only problem is, legacy system is a key point to their game, it's one of it's unique features, and yet they waited 6 months to implement it. This was probably their fatal flaw. I forsee the game switching to a free to play model around one year after launch, and them making their money via micro transactions and selling expansion packs. Which to be honest, looking at GW2, is a smart way to go.
What do you rets' think this is, some crappy single player game? Do you have any idea how much running an MMO costs, hell do you even know what an MMO is?
Do you know who else had the "insane business strategy" of monthly fees? World of Warcraft, the most successful MMO of all time.
You are probably one of the kids who before the game was launched was on facebook asking "will this game be out on xbox lol"
