i thought they shut 50% - 90% of the servers. but, it appears there's still 25 servers up, which is good news.

perhaps initially, i think the reason why i thought it was closed, was this

http://swg.wikia.com/wiki/Chapter_11,

i kept seeing it pop up on massively.com, (i.e. http://www.massively.com/2009/01/17/...wars-galaxies/ )
just like i see EVE online becoming 'sexy' and new. it's still space excel, but now, you can get brighter and bigger explosions while you grind for isk. i figure SWG is due for the same shader-riffic updates, but it won't change the gameplay. and really, if lotro is calling their updates 'books' or CoH/CoV is using 'issues', why is SWG playing with chapters/updates ...

apparently, NGE is up to chapter 11, update 8, hotfix 3
http://forums.station.sony.com/swg/p...opic_id=874381

however, all of it is not really important, it's just curious. which is good if you're still paying $150/yr for the subscription.

however, really, SWG is trash.

What part of that would make you think that SWG was closed? If you're referring to the Chapter 11 reference, it has nothing to do with bankruptcy The demolition thing refers to structures belonging to people who haven't played the game in the last year being marked to be blowen up by players which gives them credit towards rewards.

SWG certainly isn't going away any time soon and is recieving regular updates. Game Update 9 is about to go Live with some fairly big additions and Game Update 10 is around the corner with some big PvP additions. Your claim of it being trash is simply your own opinion. You're quite entitled to your opinion but it's certainly not a fact. Just like my opinion that the type of playstyle TOR is trying to be is "trash".

I used to play, but found that not having any quests between 50 or 60 till 90 and grinding was the only way to lvl was real dumb.

Is that still the case, or are there quests for all lvls now?

They added a new themepark for that level range and various amounts of collections that all go along way to filling that gap. They also added XP rewards for completing terminal missions that can get you 1 level every 10 missions. Having said that, there's still going to be a bit of a grind but there's alot less of it then there used to be.

Todays Game Update actually includes a number of XP reward increases for quests and missions.

Ok, sounds interesting. I might have to load her up again and give it a shot.

I was a playing orginal SWG, one thing that I did like about it was faction points and depending on which missions you where doing, you where Empire or Rebellion.

I do hope they carry that into SW:TOR.

Would be nice if we could play Mandalorians.

Very interesting indeed, shall check it out (like I do most mmo's) when it's released. Bioware games are generally top quality and with an engaging storyline it should be a winner.

Bounty Hoontard.....

See what I did thur?


Looking forward to this game, little bit over WoW now, especially with the WoTLK class mechanics (DK/Pally OP'edness).

Just hope they get the balance right between them. Thinking the Bounty Hunter might be fun but Ill have to resist the temptation to roll Jedi/Sith.......

Cinematic from E3 looks amazing. Nothing by way of gameplay but gives you a fair idea of the quality production. One comment said they should have let Bioware do Star Wars Ep 1-3 instead of Lucas.
