    I personally did not like this game at all.
    Neither did I. I tried it just because a couple of people in my guild were raving about it. I went right back to DAoC after a very short look.

    I liked it and had a dozen friends to loved it but my pc at the time couldn't handle the lag. But I miss it at times. The profession set up and combat play always annoyed me a bit but I didn't play enough to really get into it. The thing I loved though was that there were jedi and although they were rare and hard to become it really meant something if you saw a jedi pass by. I've never seen that in today's world of "everyone" can be the best if they just level up.

    I think what truly made it great during that time was that though Jedi were rare and took immense grinding JUST to become force sensitive, there were still Bounty Hunters in the Galaxy that could beat them in a 1-on-1 battle.  And there were multiple ways to kill a Jedi, from Teras Kasi to Rifleman or Pistoleer, or even 1h Stun Batons, there was no one way to dominate the Galaxy.

    This time of year this thread always gets some love. Why? "Released June 26, 2003" and we still can't forget her. She was truly once in a lifetime.

    I didn't get to try it until well after NGE so I have no idea what it was like in its heyday.

    It felt lawless like EVE but looked nicer than any game at the time (and many now somehow). It was unpredictable, chaotic and dramatic while somehow being peaceful, creative and wonderful. It felt like an escape to another world that you never wanted to leave. It was living Star Wars.

    Remember remember the 15th of November, the NGE treason and plot. I know of no reason why the NGE treason should ever be forgot.

    I'm guessing I'm in the minority of liking SWG a lot more after the NGE?

    In the end it had turned into a decent game with some really nice features. Some those features certainly were on par or better than some pre-NGE but overall the NGE profession system broke so much of what made SWG special to begin with it simply never felt the same (or as good) again (for me).

    Yeah it wasn't that the NGE version of the game sucked. It was that it totally changed the core game play wiping out hours and hours of player efforts and accomplishments. But even then that wasn't what so outraged SWG vets. Its the fact that the NGE was dropped by SOE in the most dick way possible. Without any forewarning, discussion, or feedback players launched the game, downloaded a big ass game patch and then logged on to find their precious game world changed forever. How the fuck would you feel about that?

    Tried it a couple of times, couldn't get into it at all. Perhaps because of the schlock Sci Fi setting called star Wars, bleh....

    Kyleran on yours sincerely 


    But there are many. You can play them entirely solo, and even offline. Also, you are wrong by default.

    Ikcin in response to yours sincerely debating whether or not single-player offline MMOs exist...

    Don't tell my base but I wasn't a Star Wars fan growing up! Then I played Galaxies and became a fairly hardcore Star Wars fan.

    The same happened to me. The NGE dampened my Star Wars enthusiasm. Disney obliterated it with 'The Last Jedi'. I dabbled with a couple of emulators a few years ago, but there was no real community (no-one stuck around).
