Looks interesting
« on: Jan 25, 2014, 03:47 PM »
For anyone who played SWG and remembered how good it was before SOE got their hands on it? Well SOE is talking about redoing SWG. Hopefully right this time. Take a look.

That being said, not holding my breath. Not to mention, its been ten years. MMO market has changed. People want/need hand holding. First time some wow player gets triple incapped/black barred in pvp, there'll be posts all over the forums.

We're talking spiritual successor, new franchise, right? Because I find it really really hard to believe they'll get another MMO license out of DisneyLucasArtsBioware.

Also, we all have our baggage, you know? But really, I have almost zero faith in SOE to deliver the goods. My excitement level is zero until I have good reason to feel otherwise. Time will tell.

He had me at, "You can come home now."

The SWG trademark was renewed a month ago.

If there is one single game I could replay and have revived. It would be SWG.

I am 50/50 on them actually making SWG again though. I have done a lot of research into this, and while I do think some things are a co-incidence such as them renewing SWG's trademark and also cancelling their current Clone Wars MMO.. there is one thing that makes me think it won't be SWG.

And that is this.


It's pretty much a copy-cat of SWG.
Similar crafting system. unique naming of items. Similar character creation. Same sandbox style. And even some of the same professions..
There is creature handlers, droid engineers, dancers, musicians, architects.. the lot. there are even mission terminals lol.
And no level system like pre-NGE either. Or classes, just professions.

I personally would rather wait for the SWGEmu to finish rather than play the repop.
I keep getting the idea in my head that Smedley is trolling SWG players lol.

"you can come home now" which people take as SWG2... but he probably means repop.
