Sorry, I tried a number of times to paste the Facebook link in, but it doesn't work. The facebook page is still there and should show up with a google search.

I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people that would love for SWG to still be around and actively improved. I loved what they had and want more.

More being:
-PvP and non-PvP space combat outcomes affect the planets below. For instance, if the EMpire wins something, they can then land some AT-ATs and stomp around on the planet below for a while.
-Atmospheric flight and combat, somehow organized not to be griefing.
-Droids do more automation for you.
-More vehicles and multi-seat
-Architects get to make consumable platforms for harvesters so they can be used anywhere.
-High density housing and markets.
-Make official system for player auctions
-And all the other good ideas from the forums.

No other game offered the crafting and immersion of this one, even with its old technology. I would so love to watch an organized cantina band right now or go prospecting for good resources. In the words of Fry "shutup and take my money!"

Yes, Char Ell that was IMHO. Believe it or not, I am very happy that SWG got made and I commited eight years to playing it. I miss my beloved game but would hope that a faithful sequal would be considered. I, however, have grown pestimistic and bitter to what I have seen in relation to franchise I follow and the markets it invests. The term: Lowest common denominator keeps springing to mind. All of this use to be the greatest games had the best possible interest in fun and achievement. Now its a matter of making the highest yeild on the lowest investment margin.

That said, thank you for monitoring this thread.

To be clear, JYCowboy's previous post is his opinion and should not necessarily be construed as the official position of LucasArts. I am not aware of any official statements from LucasArts as to their view of the viability of Star Wars in the MMORPG market segment.

Let's keep the discussion to SWG please.

@ JediWantToBe2

LA is required to turn profit in a Short Term cycle reguardless of policy. If a Star Wars product can't perform close to the top brand in that given market, then it is looked appon as a failure, reguardless of performance. Since Freemium or F2P has started to dominate the MMO space, Lucas Arts is forced to consider other genere for large investment. TOR was started in a time before F2P took off. There for its release was a follow through on that investment. Underperforming sealed its fate and lack of interest from involved parties is going to doom its future development. Expect more to come from Star Wars 1313 as MMORPG's are dead to Lucas Arts.

Is there any word if SWG will come back or is it a hopeless thing? I never understood why it did just become free to play with Microtransactions if thats what there called...

Today, I unsubbed from "The Old Republic".
Sorry LucasArts, but what Bioware delivered is unbearable and not worth a sub longer than one or two months.

Seriously, SWG, a nearly 10 year old MMO was lightyears ahead of TOR in every aspect except "voiceovers and story".

TOR is fundamentally flawed and I doubt it can be fixed. This is just a mediocre attempt on copying WOW mechanics, it does not resemble the vast worlds of Star Wars. I miss the SWG sandbox, the vast planets and a whole galaxy to explore. In TOR you are riding on a predefined linear track though lackluster, dead and corridor-like planets and when the story is over, itīs over. That game screams lazy design and mediocrity all over.

Please do something about it. But I donīt think this can be fixed, only if they would completely redesign it, which wonīt happen with these stubborn game designer who obviously hate every single good idea from SWG.

In short, Star Wars The Old Republic sucks.

Conclusion, we need SWG or even better a graphics updated SWG2, and Sony should do it.

not to mention...we all bought the game played the game for years i never once got an email from LA or SOE saying thank you for paying for 5 accounts occasionally a 6th(when the wife wanted to play)Never once did (im sure all of the swg players) we even get the common curtesy of George Lucas saying his real reasoning behind pulling the plug.(though i know it was tor) In the LA website swg players for years are treated like we are the redheaded stepchild that LA wishes they didnt have. I have been a LIFELONG FAN of Star Wars and anything related. And then for us to post on a George Lucas site we have to post in the other forum the very last line...we didnt even get treated to our own forum like the rest of the crap games above Other. Every one of those games above other my 9 year old can play...takes absolutely no skill to play those...just a few minutes of your time. Please let SOE bring back our game...payed or unpaid i could care or less...i just want it back. so you by the lightswitch please flip that thing back to the up position.

That is true for me too. SWTOR was enjoyable until you reach 50, and then it is just not worth it. It is like paying a monthly fee to Mass Effect 3 (A single player game with multiplayer options)

Many people had multiple accounts in SWG, and spent loads on the TCG, as the game was worth it. For it to get shut down the way it did, just sucks. The game was far from dead when they announced the shut down, it was increasing, and about a week before the shutdown announcement they had to lock down 2 more servers to transfers as they had become FULL, and another one was getting full then. The free transfers and the unplanned 45 days brought the game back to life. The breach was a blessing in disguise for SWG, and LA wasted that opportunity. Also if the game was dying they would have given 1-3 months notice for closure, and not 6 months.

Also, Happy 9th Anniversary, SWG :)

And a lot of SW fans are not playing an MMO because they want a good, immersive, deep story, and not a room full of 12 year olds. ;)

I say there are a lot of star wars fans out there not playing an mmo because swtor was such a flop. They are looking for something to fill thier wants and alot of us ( I am one ) are finding nothing worth the time or effort. Some will eventually compromise thier wants and settle for less, others will walk away form mmo's completely and some will play an emulator but alot of us still nuture the hope of seeing swg return in an official way. Is it such a bad idea? Would it be such a task to do? I know there are those who say "let it go" and it was a "dieing game". Well I couldn't say much more for swtor and the thing is I compare every mmo I play to swg. If the game came back I would resub the day it was available and I think alot of others would as well. Something to keep the fans happy.

This is my 2 cents as if LA really needed it:

If nothing more but to satisfy the public on Star Wars Galaxies.

Please reopen servers to satisfy the masses that realy did love this game at one point or another.
If nothing else you would profit from the content that was already there.

Open
1 Pre-cu server(add more if needed)
1 Pre-cu test center

1 Cu server(add more if needed)
1 Cu test center

1 Nge server(add more if needed)
1 Nge test center

This would at least satisfy the masses that did love this game in its haydays of each major upgrade. This way each person that say loved the Cu could play on those servers. In my personal opinion do not allow server transfers unless there was a need to close a server. (In my personal opinion I would have been perfectly happy back on my original server) I had 4 accounts and the freedom to do whatever i chose in game. had really great friends Only reason i ever quit playing was because the announcement to shut off the servers. So I didnt even get to experience the final days which after reading some peoples comments wish i would have kept playing. This was and is by far the best mmo i have ever played. Tor is nothing but a limited wow clone. even wow is more open than tor...i was extremely dissapointed to see the many limitations of tor. i was a space junky that probably spent more time in space to see it reduced to tempest(showing my age here) was very very very stomach churning. All i have to say is thank god for screen shots of swg so i can look at all of the old stuff i used to do and my houses my ships and stuff of that nature.
