game has to be losing money big time.

IMO, SOE should cut its losses admit utter failure and use the money to fix vanguard and pirates of the burning seas (another half finished buggy game...they are ALREADY talking about server mergers! http://www.burningsea.com/forums/showthread.php?t=21578)


P.S. hehe, found this old vid...pre-CU parody....fond memories, too bad they didnt lampoon the infamous "butt-slide" Razz

Its really too bad about SWG. Back in the day before SOE had the bright idea to "fix" it galaxies was a really fun game with an unparalleled crafting system Sad

rip SWG you will be missed by many

Thats a pretty appropriate video lol. I too miss the oldschool SWG, years ahead of its time in character progression and crafting. Only game EVER that I liked to craft in. Funny how we've not seen ANY game since use that model, or even come close to using that model. Even though 95% of the people who played say they liked it better... WeIrD!!11!

There needs to be a revolution!

i saw an interview by smedley where he admitted to the blunder that was made on SWG. which also brought an end to the accountants making the decisions

The game was ass up from release. There were even more bugs and exploits in SWG than there were here in VG. Classes were totally out of sync.

SWG had some of the best ideas though like Designer.

True it had tons of bugs/exploits but not worse than VG for sure. The classes were not equal in PvP, but I don't think they should have been really. (Granted the TK was way overpowered).

I still like the character progression better when its levels revolve around skills/abilities instead of skills/abilities revolving around levels. And being able to customize your character with skills from different classes. It's definately the best model I've seen, if only they developed it, instead of scrapping it. It coulda been the beezneez! I really don't see why other dev companies don't try a leveless progression theme.

Oh well, ancient history. The memories will probably get better and better as I get older and older, lol!
