    Strange, I got the message in 2005 sent by some mr Smedley from SOE and some mrs Nancy Macintyre  from Lucasarts to "GTFO, we don't want you, we rather want those millions of WoW players coming here!"

     

     

    Ya, hopefully you never get what you want because of something that was said / happened nine years ago...

    Sorry I made a mistake ,  I instantly envisioned SWTOR  not SWG which I thought was a brilliant game , I unlocked a jedi but for some reason people got jealous and eventually they made it a quest everyone could do which basically was the end of the game .

     

    If they use the EQNext sandbox technology for Starwars the game could be utterly amazing beyond anything we ever envisioned in our wildest dreams .

     

     

     

    That's SOE's plan.  EQ Next Landmark is going to be an MMO construction set and they are going to use that to make their next few games.  They are going to use user generated art to save development time and cost from EQNL.

    Lol, Smedley: "I fucked up and ruined a good game, alienated a whole playerbase and I was right the whole time", 9 years later.... "oh hey guys, looks like sandbox games were the future all along, you can come home now"

    fuck this guy!!

    I miss SWG.  I played on a roleplaying server and didn't know it until I encountered the dorks.  I spent the remainder of my days griefing them as much as possible.

    I used to love getting the cantina dancers.  These wackjobs who sat in cantina's cybering people all day and they'd get TEF (temperory enemy flag) by healing flagged members of the opposing faction.

    I'd send my pet to follow them, which made the pet teleport to them if they're in a building.  Then "kill"  suddenly this cybering cantina dancer is like WTF some big ass tiger is eating me.  Usually other losers would try to assist and give me more people to kill.

    This just in, SoE to buy The Repopulation and re-label it SWG 2.  

    Then, they will introduce the NGE #2 to add injury to insult.

    Geez the hatred and bitterness against Smed. You know, the guy has actually been quite decent since 2013, and especially stuff concerning PS2, now EQN seem to be as he stated it would be, so hey, give the man a break.

    And if someone from SOE has the guts to admit their fuck up on my child, I accept the apology, but next time you better hand me over a god damn prodigy.

    Not according to them  - https://twitter.com/therepopulation. ; Oh hello everybody - Jestor here.

    Now The Repopulation is my next MMO and I consider it to be the improvement long overdue to a Sci-Fi Sandbox MMO  but mark my words if I see just the slightest sign of involvement from our former gaming host ,not a penny more of profits will they see from me.

    Unaware of the Jestor?

    Hummm. This will be interesting... It will be fun to see if the old claim from SWG vets that "it does not matter if it is not Star Wars" will hold true.

     

    The second thing that will be fun is to watch the SWG Vet community tear it self apart trying to define what SWG was.

     

    Buuuuut If i will be able to recreate my entertainer/image designer.. Sure i´l be there at the gates with the rest of you. It was some of the best role-playing i ever had. Sure it was "hairstylist the MMO" but it was damm fun.. We even had guards a while that made sure people behaved and were polite.

     

    I foresee a 0.001% chance of the image designer ever making it´s return... or the entertainer for that matter. After all... Unless it is a crafter there is no room for non combat content in todays market =P

    Aaaaaaaand people like this is why we had armed guards. Not going to speculate what sort of social disorder causes that kind of behaviour... But it should most likley be diagnosed and treated.

     

    Also it is kind of ironic but most of the attempted cybering was done by brodudes like the one above who then set their pet tigers at us when we "did not put out". Then again i knew a few ent´s that simply took the stance of "easy money for copy/pasting some slashfic" so it did happen from time to time.

    Nonsense! My dad, a major steel executive in his mid-50s, was ripping up n00bs with his Master TKA. All of his "old co-workers played the heck out of that game!

    Wait.. he was talking about a video game right? *scratches head*

    Yupp as the good fortune had it he was. =P

     

    The things is that most of the players playing a entertainer character had no... and i do say no combat abilities at all. So what he did was setting his pet (through a glitch in essence) loose on people who had no way to deal with the problem except.. well.. to die.

     

    The fact that it was on a RP server makes it even worse as the cantinas was the nr1 RP hubs. People came there to relax and actually role play... not get eaten by glitchy tigers. So it is my conclusion that anyone doing as described do have some sociopathic disorder that stops them from connecting with the discomfort of others...

     

    As i said there was a reason why we had armed guards on the server i played on.. Yes... We had people who role-played our guards and had a few under cover alts on both sides of the factions in order to deal with people to messed with our cantinas. It was awesome.

    My most outstanding memory was a real douche-nozzel that keep disrupting by glitching and being a pure sleeze. So one of our guards went deep under-cover and befriended this dude and even convinced him to give him access to his house. Then he cleaned him out and told him he´d get his stuff back when he learned to behave. Never seen a more polite and well behaved player ever since. =) He also got his stuff back.
