They should just close the servers and make a new SW game that isn't going to 'need' an complete do over 1 year into it.
Retards imo.

Was the most funnest MMO I played till they added Jedi and all the nerfs/carebear shit

Goddamn that is bordering on pathetic.

I agree with Secro though that game was fun till they fucked it up. Dunno, all the rest since then just seem a bit of the same old stuff with different graphis

I still to this day love the old game, the idea of having no levels and creating a character like they did it was unreal. Made lots of sense, use a pistol heaps, get pistol xp then become a better pistoleer. Don't like being a pistol dude, no problems, pick up a carbine.

It was such a versatile system and made you create a toon how you wanted it.
I loved Jedi with the Aurilla village concept. It was not as easy as people thought and all up took me about 5 mths to unlock, and then there was the Jedi XP. I admit the game had tonnes of problems, and the steep learning curve was what they tried to get rid of with the NGE, but this trading card game goes to show you that they think they can make a WoW clone and think it's going to be successful.

My understanding though was the IP on the game was up this month with the SOE / Lucasarts deal, the TCG makes me think there will not be another Star Wars MMO, and this dead horse is going to be continued to be flogged for a long time :cry:

I've never played SWG, but it amazes me how you can botch a Star Wars mmo. Surely, done correctly, SWG should have done to the genre what WoW has done.

twas not done properly =)

Just amazing how they fucked it up so bad when it was fine to start with. They need to learn to listen to community feed back rather than thinking they know what they are doing, but it's SOE so i shouldn't expect too much tbh.

I think they're on record now as saying "stick with your original fan base and don't dumb your game down for console kiddies."

(very heavily paraphrased :) )

PS

I heard somewhere that Bioware was doing another starwars mmo set in the Knights of the Old Republic era. You know, all of the cool stuff with none of the heavy, over crowded eps 1-6 story.
