    With a large budget... I'd say CCP.  I haven't read through all of the thread, but has anyone said them yet?

    Nevermind, it's been said many times lol.  CCP combined with the dude that got fired from Blizzard who made Diablo II, then I'd somehow try to convince John Carmack (ID Software) to make an MMORPG.

    Arena Net or Cryptic.  I like their games and worlds.  Their style would lend well to Star Wars.

    The old Trion might have been able to pull off a fun version but I don't think so anymore.

    There are other studios like Funcom that makes great immersive worlds, but I don't think they're Star Wars.  BlueHole has a great combat system in Tera that would lend itself excellently to Star Wars action, but again, they aren't Star Wars.

    The stuff Carbine is doing with Wildstar looks really interesting too.  I think they could do Star Wars stylistically, but who knows how their game plays.

    I would give it back to SOE with the stipulation that it must be SWG v1.0, the game's release version.

    Further a binding agreement with strict parameters:

    -they could patch bugs, and create content

    -they are not to adjust nor balance the game professions in any way further. no matter what.

    -Leave the Jedi system in it's original form, no adjustements.

     

    just my 2cp

    I believe leaving this system in place would have made for a better release of the launch of space travel, as well as everything else going forward.

    Bioware!  I would give them a second chance, from scratch.

    But for real, CCP.

    We need to get SOE to hire the original swg devs back and put them back to work.

    CCP, Valve, Funcom, Trion and of course SOE couldn't possibly do a worse job than BW, so choose one and do it, Disney

    nobody,,no matter what they do now,,the next SW mmo will have an even larger group of haters,

    than this one had

    from now on there are the pre CU group, post CU, and the new swtor group

    all of them going" why dont they do it like in game XXX? that was the best"

    i cant see any big developer touching this IP, after the previous results

    small company, and a small game maybe

    but i think they have learned the lesson by now

    they can only persuade the suits, by promising a cash cow a la wow,,like they did with swtor

    and where that way of thinking leads us,,we all know that by now

  • rojoArcueidrojoArcueid hell, NJPosts: 6,787Member Uncommon

    I would let Bioware make a Star wars game similar to Mass Effect but with a hop in and out co-op like borderlands.

     

    As for a full MMORPG i would like ArenaNet, SOE, Trion, Blizzard, and Funcom.

     

    Funcom and SOE are tricky. I would play it form funcom if they use character physics and combat from Age of Conan (not from TSW). As for SOE, they need to go back to their roots and allow many playable races per faction (more than swtor), and a well mixed sandpark with dynamic progression (no quest hubs with ! signs), and voice overs that dont cost 200 million (i can do high quality voice overs for beer).

    Also, whoever makes it MUST add open space and let us fly our ships by ourselves from the ground to other planets and have space dynamic invasions. Free roam ftw.

     

    And dont forget companions and romance >.> i dont care, i want those too

     

    keep on dreaming! :p

    EDIT: and bounty hunters get real jet packs with a fuel meter that can be used by pressing spacebar after jumping (like Firefall) not a crappy 1 skill jet pack like swtor did :(

    why would they do that?  they already tried,,and failed

    [mod edit]

    most star wars fans are NOT hardcore players,,box sales for swtor prove that

    thats what they realized, and SWG had  the CU,,but by then it was too late

    first,,wow was in its prime,,and SWG was ageing at that point

    and most hardcore fans left, when EVERYBODY could become a jedi

    if they had made the CU in the first year,,maybe they could have turned it around

    Did you know that by the original-spec defintion, respondents couldn't be considered trolls at all?

    Only the first post, thread creator "trolling for an argument", could 'officially' be a troll.

    But anyway, irrelevant to the thread, just historical trivia.

    Self-pity imprisons us in the walls of our own self-absorption. The whole world shrinks down to the size of our problem, and the more we dwell on it, the smaller we are and the larger the problem seems to grow.

    It's not trivia. You are correct. The term troll has somehow degenerated in some people's minds as a defensive ploy to refute someone who has an opinion which is contrary to theirs.

    Um sorry but no, the CU destroyed SWG. Would not have saved it. SWG before the CU/NGE had 300k + subs, which for that time was damn good.  When the CU/NGE hit due to greed from LA, the population dropped by half.

    SWG was the least hardcore game out there. Offering much freedom and choice.

    SWG wasnt a failure, any game lasting 8+ years is a success in my book. It made profits, and even until the end it got some great updates and features added. Unlike the newer games that strip the features away and dumb games down.

    If SWG was fixed up, balance in game was successful, new graphics, with the amount of money that SWTOR had............. yeah it would do damn well in todays market.

    Bring back the SOE team that brought us the pre-CU, and the first expansion. Let them finish the product before leaving beta (unlike last time).

    It wasn't perfect. I didn't NEED to be perfect. It was ahead of it's time for sure. It's probably ahead of THIS time even; graphics notwithstanding. It was more immersive, thought-provoking, entertaining, and intricate then EVERY MMO I've tried since. I say this without a hint of exaggeration.

    I can only imagine what could have been if given the proper management, budget, and goals. So if the topic is something as fanciful as a "what if", then I say... "What if!"

  • H0urg1assH0urg1ass Austin, TXPosts: 517Member Uncommon

    The problem with this question is that everyone out there has a different idea of how MMO's should be.

    There are the hardcore sandboxy types who will invariably say CCP should make the game.

    There are the hardcore themeparky types who will push for a themepark developer like Blizzard.

    Then there are the "somewhere in between" people like myself, who want to have open large worlds filled with random encounters and fun places to explore, but also mix that with your typical instanced raids.  I would also want a character creation system that's totally skill based and tosses the class/level system in the garbage.  Let us build the characters we want to build and then explore the world, but have the option to jump into instanced PVE/PVP with our friends.

    I don't know who could develop a game like this tbqfh.

    Arenanet does not come close to the popularity of either that I mentioned, try to stay realistic.
