    End game in any mmo tends to scale down vs leveling. I mean look at wow, everquest, dcuo.
    It mostly depends how active you are in raiding and dailys. Im having a good time in the game, the leveling curve was pretty dam good. For the end game Ill give it time to get its legs, although the two raids out are pretty fun.

    Honestly i didnt rush to 50 for that reason, swtor is young and will grow, just have to give it time.

    Im finding the class stories very engaging , and pvp is surprisingly fun.

    all in all, i think this game has some engaging gameplay, stories, etc. havent been this into a game since original wow.

    The funny part about where James Ohlen talked about having thick skin on the forums is that Bioware forums tend to be a place of high censorship.

    Funny example of this is when the unsub button "broke" for SWTOR:

    Level 1 - 49 was the best MMO experienced I ever had! TO DATE. Level 50... well... very lack luster. The first 30 days of being 50 was grand... the next 30 days.... was.... meh... and now... bleh... if this next big content push does not really improve END GAME content... my guild and I are calling it quits.
