    My husband and I play WoW also and he just got SWTOR for Christmas, he said he's never going back to WoW. I find that hard to believe because he's been playing for over 3 years and I've been playing for 2 1/2. I love the new content in WoW from patch 4.3 but I'm not excited for Mists of Pandaria. We participated in the beta for SWTOR and it was ok, I didn't like the more interactive quest acceptance but that could be because I've never really cared for Star Wars. My husband is a Star Wars geek and loves every bit of it though. I guess we'll have to see.. with 12+ Million player in WoW it will be hard to beat.

    I did, I've been playing world of warcraft since it had the venilla closed beta over 7 years ago easy. I took a few months off after I leveled in Cata, and then I bought this. I'm not a star wars fan really. I've watched the movies, they were good. But I'm not a "true" fan. But SWTOR has alot of nice gameplay, enough that I love it, without loving were it came from. It's got potential, and I've hardly dented the game with my 10 hours...But it's really a nice game.
