Default New story & missions Dev Diary puts TSW at the top of my expectations

If there ever was something to challenge the upcoming Star Wars: TOR in terms of story at the MMO scene, this is going to be it. Full voice acting and mo-cap is finally confirmed, along with three different story mission types: Sabotage, Investigation and Action:

That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To become a better man

You know, I feel that Bioware's focus on story is totally wrong idea. Don't get me wrong, I like to see good story, in singleplayer that's most important aspect to me, but in MMOs I don't find it that important. Sure, it' nice to see good story in MMO, but most players will find it boring after some time. Especially in games like SW:TOR, with traditional leveling. When you roll second or third character it will become nuisance. Especially for most of today's gamer population, which wants instant gratification.
Classless system in Secret World looks interesting, and this missions looks fun, but what matters most is endgame(I hate this term, and like game without it, like EVE).

Well that's exactly my thoughts too. "With traditional leveling", which TSW doesn't have. I agree, it won't work in TOR unless by some miracle, I do think it will work in TSW though, because of the constant ARG events, the investigation missions, and the PvP and PvE sabotage missions. There just isn't that much "traditional" game play in TSW.
