Star Wars Galaxies Immortal Combat Video

One of my all time favorite videos of SWG in its PRIME before the NGE BOMB.

3:35 nice little duel of sabers

4:10 minutes into the video, nice close PvP scene

Sorry, was feeling a little nostalgic today.

    My fav part of the Pre-Cu is Darth Vader hunting down Jedi Players......made it a hell of a lot more interesting and gave you the real immersion of being in danger hence why so many Pre-Cu Jedi hid from the general population.

    The combat looked really comical.

    You got that right about the music.

    Tbh I never played SWG pre NGE, but I always thought the game was far from polished. The animations and combat really put me off.

    I'm sorry to say but that video summs up why pre-CU was bad



    • Everyone is either TKA, Swordman or Jedi. Why? Because they can hit the mind and dizzy/kd= win. A few hippies used other skills


    • Everyone wears the same composite armor except Jedi


    • The combat is horribly un-synced, hitting air


    • Everythig except Jedi is far from Star Wars


    • You do the same 2-3 attacks over and over after a complex routine of food, clothing and buffs(Doc queues in Coronet yeah), it's more strategy than "Star Wars combat"


    And now I'm not commenting on the FOTMing, impossible to balance skills, clown combat gear, outdated graphics, complete lack of directed content=new players never bother, well grinding mission terminal quests was directed but god awfull boring, Jedi spin grind groups anyone? The only thing to do was hoard gear, grind Jedi or craft. The possiblity to customize your self was good, housing and crafting, but that is far from what "Star Wars" is.


     


    I liked the CU, the NGE was a bit over the top, but still better than the old garbage.
