    Sorry, don't trust you enough to invest my time in building something with you.

    I only hope it will not be based on their latest EQL/N engine. I like the direction of EQL/N but I consider them into a new genre of VMOG (Voxel Multiplayer Online Games)

    Unless it's a completely different IP.

    Curious, what seven games are those ? Haven't heard any about SOE closing down any games recently or notices in my email box.

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

    Yeah, I'm sure Smedley changed his ways and wants to give you a big hug and welcome you home and cuddle.

    Well have fun feeding the mouths of the people that spat and laugh in your face repeatedly lol.

     

    With all the promises that comes out of Smed's mouth, I believe it when I see it. So far haven't seen anything.

    All people talk about on this forum is SWG. Finally some interesting news and people still hate. Pretty sad

    It is SWG 2.0.....even though EA has exclusive rights for future SW games SWG predates the Disney/EA deal the SWG trademark being renewed keeps SWG IP and its exlcusive rights to SOE only. The wording by Smed ...saying a new IP is for legal reasons only, it is SWG 2 last summer Disney and SOE had a meeting and it was surrounding SWG IP, so a direct competitor to TOR is coming and if it anything like what SWG was the good and great parts of the Pre-CU mixed with post NGE content well you see where this will go then add in story telling elements from TOR and well you have a game we actually want to play.

    Certainly hope not.  We DON'T need another zombie game ever!  A zombie game would never entice past SWG players, just completely NOT their thing.

    While I agree 100% it seems suspicious that SOE would trademark H1Z1 for online gaming/rpg platform then shortly after make this announcement.  Honestly,I am totally burnt out on the whole zombie fad. 

     

    Same here. I have ZERO interest in a zombie themed MMO.

    Disney...not SOE....renewed a SWG tm.  It's been said over and over.

       My guess is its just a standard renewal to keep the name available. It is also quite possible that  Disney intends to name a ride or area of one of its parks..or an entire new park .. Star Wars Galaxies. Anyway ..I doubt its for another MMO but who knows. 

  • severiusseverius sacramento, CAPosts: 1,514Member Common
    Is not the renewal of the trademark nothing more than SOE and Disney protecting its property rights so that someone, say REAL smart fans of SWG, cannot legally go and publish partially reverse engineered code cobbled together with their own unique code?  That maintaining the trademark would give SOE, Disney etc legal recourse in the case of the above that they may otherwise have lost?

    I want a Sci-Fi sandbox.. I do not want a zombie game.

     

    Here's hoping SOE does the right thing.

  • MargulisMargulis Glendale, AZPosts: 1,614Member
    I'm sure some of you are excited for EQNext - but after the years of hype for the "reveal" of that game, and what I saw, I will never buy into Smed BS hype again.

    They also trademarked "Sturmendrang" as well. Maybe that will be the name of the new IP, instead of H1Z1.

    Despite the many changes SWG it remains one of the most unique MMORPGs out there , that had many unique and tons of options and catered to more than just combat "kill,kill!" many of SWG's features remain unique to this day . People hated the NGE, everyone loved the Pre-Cu but Pre-Cu had virtually had next to no content, player driven content is fun but all the additions SWG had when it closed made it shine to it 90% potential if the Pre-CU profession skilltrees of old were combined with the end of SWG's lifespan full of content... there would have been happy players abound.

    Actually, the CU version had the much needed content while keeping the skill trees and sandbox features as you're talking about. 

    For me, the CU was the best iteration of the 3 versions.  It added balance, more content, and got rid of the stupid HAM bar system that required the Doc buffs to kill anything.  Many didn't even given the CU a chance because it was so poorly implemented.  Also, many were more pissed by the fact that their god-mode, defense-stacking templates were nerfed all to hell and they couldn't solo 40 rancors with roundhouse kicks anymore.  By the time it was running pretty darn well the NGE happened and turned the game upside down.  I know many SWG vets pine for the pre-CU, I'm one of the few that pine for the CU version.  Though, I'll agree the NGE was by far the worst.

    To be honest when I read that tweet I went wow.  Then I remembered who I was dealing with, and that is Smedley.  You know the master liar of the bunch.  Honestly  when he says stuff I wait till I see it in cold hard facts.

    well, a zombie scenario could run into some mmo experiences

    1. Zombie Survival, duh

    2. Post-Apocalyptic, what happens after the zombie problem is cleared?

    3. Sci-Fi, humanity escapes earth and leaves the zombies behind?

    4. all of the above mixed. Post-Zombicalyptic Sci-Fi Survival

    What no one ever got about Star Wars fans is most of us don't want to be Luke, we want to live in the Star Wars universe. SWG offered us that and as a result (despite rampant bugs and terribad customer support) it retained 250k players. I'm not sure that kind of loyalty can exist for a game that isn't within that universe. It's exactly why SWTOR clings to life, because; Star Wars.

    this must mean they are either relaunching swg !! or they are creating swg2 or another version of a starwars game which is very similar to what swg was.

     

    the keywords are !!! "the swg trademark has been renewed as of last month"  swg means starwars galaxies. 

    No, it doesn't mean anything of the sort.

    It might just mean that a computer in the Lucas Arts legal department automatically renewed an IP title, one of thousands, owned by the company.

    Nobody knows that for certain at all - and, according to Jeff Freeman and Dan Rubenfield's specific statements - the changes were only made within SWG and then approved by LA. You can get an idea of what happened here:

    Not sure if this was posted here.  But in the AMA on reddit when asked about the new game Smed says "completely new IP. The data is on the interwebs.. someone just has to find it."  

    So someone get to digging and find the info!

    Just to question the philosophy. Army of Socrates.

    SOE shutting 6 of their MMOs and MMORPGs downs, offices are all in Austin, Lucasarts has already repurposed that space and will set up shop in the same building that Vanguard, Free Realms, Clone Wars, Etc offfices were in. Also a license for use of the Cryengine. This is SWG 2 folks .......no doubt about it...

    My prediction:

     

    New Star Wars game, being part of a deal to get Marvel properties back into Disney hands, developed by SOE to introduce new Star Wars cannon content.

    Brrrflp!

    Thing is, one of the comments Smedley made about Clone Wars was something to do with licensing. From what I've read, this will not be a SW game, but a new IP in the spirit of SWG. Maybe?

    That's pretty much what I gathered as well.  Thanks for clarifying for people though.
