Star Wars Galaxies Shutting Down

http://pc.ign.com/articles/117/1178986p1.html

Its always sad to hear an MMO shut down... But I guess it has to make space for the Old Republic.

Amazed it lasted this long.

I played that game for a year and a half and the first day was probably the most enjoyable.

I loved the crafting system, the ability to progress and do well just crafting without actually doing combat stuff. Then they added the ability to be a jedi into and the game went to shit.

Old Republic is already much better just by not having SOE attached to it.

I used to play this game for two and something years, it was fun at times and infuriating at others. I haven't missed it since I retired and I won't miss it when its gone, The Old Republic is the future!

This used to be one of my favourite MMO's, back in its original form. So much variation on what your character could become, and for fucking ages there were no Jedi at all till someone eventually unlocked one, then it was all about being a Bounty Hunter and hunting the Jedi down! But then they went and fucked everything up by simplifying it into the core 9 classes and essentially trying to make it more like WOW and other MMO's. The worst bit is that they just did it overnight in a patch without first informing ANY subscribers. Think they lost something daft like over 50% of their subscribers in the first month.

So yeah, was awsome then it just became dogshit, fucking SOE

Quoted for great justice! Anything they touch seems to go from 'omg this is great!' to 'omg dont put that spiked thingy in my ass!!'

I had heard about these, and even knowing very little about what SW:G was before, it sounds like horseshit. All hail the new Star Wars MMO, then, The Old Republic!

Writer of crappy fics, I hope you might derive some enjoyment from them.
