Players Have Already Put 60 Million Game Hours Into Star Wars: The Old Republic

For all the complaining I’ve been seeing and reading about bugs in Star Wars: The Old Republic, you’d think no one was playing it. Surprise, however — they are. Electronic Arts has kicked out a press release breaking down a bunch of goofy numbers about the game, and as one might expect, they’re all pretty impressively huge.

For starters:

  • As of Dec. 26, players have already logged 60 million hours in the game in total.
  • 850,000 Sith Warriors have been created; 810,000 Jedi Knights have been created.
  • Players have completed more than 260 million quests.
  • Players have fought more than 44 million PvP battles.
  • More than 9 million space combat missions have been completed.

And back on Dec. 23, EA sent out another numbers release that said more than 3.8 million characters had been created, including 510,000 Jedi Knights and 550,000 Sith Warriors. One guesses that since, three days later, those numbers had jumped up drastically, the number of characters in the game has probably gone up considerably too.

I can’t wait to find out how many subscriptions the game holds down in a month or two. Personally, I’m having a blast.

ToR’s so bad that people are enjoying it? Cudos to those people then.

Comes down to a simple fact. fanboys and raging basement dwellers. Not just WoW but any game. Play and do what you enjoy. It’s your money, spend on what you feel is worth your time and money.
