Are we getting a present this year in SWG?

Well last year, SOE was kind enough to give everyone a free Holocron for the Appocalypse... oops I mean't Christmas... although that was the day SWG was gonna die... ooh the hologrind days... AHHH THE NIGHTMARES!!!!

(ahem)

Anyways, does anyone have a clue what we are getting this year?

    The only "gifts" are the 3 Wookiee Life Day things that you can get.  If you have JTL you'll also get 75,000 credits sometime around the new year.

    Until you cancel your subscription, you are only helping to continue the cycle of mediocrity.

    Well they gave us gifts for their first anniversary.  They gave us gifts for last year's Christmas.  If they don't give us gifts again, it means that @ssmonkey won when he tried to petition that Christmas is not something that is part of the Star Wars storyline (Even if they had a Star Wars Christmas special long ago on TV, rofl) and would not be good roleplaying-wise.

    And we're all getting 75,000 credits for New Years?  Yay... more to add to my 20 million credits on Kauri server!!!  And to my 5 million on Sunrunner!!!  And to my 2 million on Ahazi!!!  And to my other 2 million on Bria!!! And to my...................... (ahem) ... sorry, I spended lots of time selling crafts and grinding Mokk & Janta missions... it was too easy to become rich in SWG a couple months ago. image

    I don't think the credits are a gift, I beleive they were a fix for the problems low level players were having getting a ship because of the cost of getting one or something. I read about it in a news article somewhere, I wish I could remember where now.

    /sigh

    That's cause new players aren't supose to start with the JTL expansion.  They are supose to play the actual game first, get money, then go into space.  Just like in real life!  It's not like a car will fall out of the sky unless you're really lucky.  You're born, go to school, work hard, get a job, buy a car and travel into space... oops... I mean travel around.

    Stupid SOE... like any other expansion in any other MMORPG, sure there's new stuff for all players including lower levels, but the main thing that is always added in a new Expansion is more dungeons and more content for HIGH LEVEL players!  Cause we, the veterans, are bored of the game and need more, so expansions are released to give us more content.

    if you check the SWG press releases I think you will find the one I was talking about. They stated the money was a "fix" for the difficulty and the unexpected high economy on ships. And yes I agree with you, but they need to sell expansions, so everyone gets a ship.

    Unexpected high economy?!?! Unexpected? It takes 8 miliion resrouces to make one ship what the hell did they THINK people were going to charge?

    Part of me is going to miss this game when my subscription runs out in Feb, and part of me says: Why the hell have you been playing so long?

  • JohnarkJohnark Member Posts: 901

    8 million ressources for a ship?  That's impossible!!!!!!!!!!!!   People were selling Millinium Falcons for 1 million credits.  I bought my Rihkxxyrk Starfighter for just 400,000 credits!!!

    In order for the Shipwrights to make profit, they have to at least sell their ships at 2cpu or else forget it... it'd be a waste of time to become a Shipwright.

    Either the economy is THAT bad, or you have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

    I exaggerated a little. A lot of ships take over 100k resources, so even at 1CPU that's an expenisive ship. How could SOE NOT know ships were going to be expensive?

  • cdapolitocdapolito Member Posts: 9

    I think he meant 8mil resource to get Master Shipwight, at which point you can make the Ace ships and make the other ships worth buying (i.e. experment points).

    >>>>

    unexpected high economy on ships.

    >>>>

    I am pretty sure that the high resource cost is SOE's way to siphon off some of the many resources stored for JTL .. to ease the burden on the database. And yes, shipbuilding consumes an insane amount of resources. Even more than architect. Acceptable for ship chassis. Unacceptable for consumables like missiles, which are so expensive to craft that people hardly buy them because they are not worth it.

    I have NO idea why novice JTL pilots should be broke ?! I am a 1211 pilot (= equivalent to a  few hours flying .. too much crafting ships on the ground :-) and I wiped out 52 tier 1-3 ships over Tatooine in about 15 min, getting 23 loot pieces that I sold for 47k credits to an NPC. Which means you can make LOTS of money being a pirate .. shooting up ships and selling loot. My shields hardly felt the attackers. So novice pilots dont really NEED those 75k.

    About the original topic : The Wookie Life Day gifts ARE the  official X-mas gifts .. and yes, you have to do something to get them ... which means there are not the same problems as last year (overfull inventories that would pin you in place until you delete something to get down to 60 items). And those paintings wont trigger the insanity that was the hologrind, which has REALLY hurt the game A LOT. As Santa and X-mas DONT fit into the Star Wars universe, I am glad that we have NO red nosed reindeers, NO X-mas cookies and NO snowballs in SWG .... Wookie Life Day was a good idea in my opinion.

    Have fun
