    ROFL!  MS NGE fanboy!   This forum is by no means to The people who play This crap nge, But the vets Who quit, Simple, go to the current swg forums.

    Greetings one and all!

    I wanted to write a quick note to explain, first, that the original wording for this forum might have been misleading. I have ammended it to be more inclusive of new and perspective players who are curious as to why so many people are angered over this particular game.

    The reasoning behind the creation of our two new SWG forums was never to stifle anyone's opinions, but rather to give everyone a fair chance to express their views on this game. I realize that there are very strong feelings surrounding the sweeping changes that were made to this game, and we want to provide a place where people can discuss this issue. It has always been my intention to have this place be used as well by newcomers who are curious about gaining perspective on the events of this game's past, including the NGE and CU. I appologise if the original wording of the description for this forum was misleading, and hope that by adding to the description, I have cleared this up.

    I hope that by providing these two seperate forums, these two distinct aspects and points of view on this game can both be heard so that everyone who has a voice, can be heard.

    *edit: I also wanted to clear up some confusion about the actual NAME of this forum. From Dictionary.com, the word Refuge means: 1. shelter or protection from danger, trouble, etc.: to take refuge from a storm. 2. a place of shelter, protection, or safety. 3. anything to which one has recourse for aid, relief, or escape. I chose that name due to the controversey that is caused around people posting opinions about the changes. I thought that it was an appropriate for a forum dedicated to this particular subject.

    thank you for being extremely one sided. They can trash us but cant take it?


    I am an SWG original, I played beta 1 with thunderheart. Flame pre cu and I - WILL - destroy you.

    This one has to be a joke or someone that has not been around the game for the last year... one or the other.

    If your asking for a list of why the NGE is a failure and why the game is now in the dump then you need to open your eyes and look around.

    Go to the SOE boards and just read them....

    If you think this is a polished game that has treated its loyal playerbase well then you need to send a email to Mr. Smedley himself and ask him what happend, because your either the worst fanboi without any information or just some kid trying to piss people off.

    Somthing is not right with this one... people under rocks know about this mess man.

    Just wanted to say that a refuge is also a place for people who're without home... and seeing as SWG is gone, people do need a refuge to go to :) - that or sleep outside in the rain :P

    I found my refuge another place, though, so never really went looking for one here.

    Personally, I think it's a good idea for people who're tired of SOE's antics and angry about the NGE to have a place of their own.

    So do I. It's called "outside."

    Get a life, people.

    So I started to walk into the water. I won't lie to you boys...I was terrified. But I pressed on, and as I made my way past the breakers, a strange calm came over me. I don't know if it was divine intervention or the kinship of all living things, but I tell you, Jerry, at that moment ... I was a marine biologist.

    ha ha, nice to "see" a real SWG vet : )

    Now i miss SWG even more. I have tryed two times to play it since the NGE, but it is not the same anymore : (     How about you? 

  • BreaghaBreagha Kirke HelsingePosts: 131Member

    On and off... Can't seem to let it go and can't play it :P

    More time passes between resubs, though. Figure I'll eventually stop bothering *smiles wryly*

    Thats a sad end to a great era of SWG. But now is 2008, something equal must come soon.....and then will all old SWG sleepers wake up and prosper again.

    I have not had one solid MMO to play since the NGE. Im pathetic. Instead i made some Star Wars lightsaber movies.....

    Thats how much i miss it  LOL

  • BreaghaBreagha Kirke HelsingePosts: 131Member

    Wow... a much better way to use your time, than wasting it on SWG ;D - Pretty cool!

    As for better games, I'm keeping my fingers crossed for Age of Conan. Hoping that'll be my new MMO :)

    Wow... I came back to the game after roughly 3 years, and I am trying out my little 15-day trial. Was excited to get back into it, after surfing around some other MMO's I realized how nice SWG is.... was...

    At first I thought you guys were just really b***chy (no offense) and nitpicking little changes, but now I see how horribly wrong it has gone. Its like I woke up in a twilight zone, everything is the same, but.... different.

    I'm more bummed out than I am pissed off at it, and trust me I was getting pretty pissed off for the first hour trying to figure out exactly what the hell was going on. I say that like I ever figured out what was going on, but oh well... Maybe it can still be a good game to fresh eyes, but I wont be able to go on playing it.

  • BreaghaBreagha Kirke HelsingePosts: 131Member

    *pats*

    Well... we are b***chy (none taken) and probably even obnoxious, but that's not the same as that we aren't right :P
