Enough of the 'I want Pre-CU back' talk...really. This is coming from someone that played SWG at it's start...someone that walked away from that buggy, POS game 4 times, and resubbed each and every time (except for the last) because I missed what SWG used to be.
But really, SOE will NOT EVER bring back Pre-CU servers. Yes, the game was great back then, but it was still completely unbalanced and totally full of bugs, broken quests, and garbage. They can't simply dust off an old DVD, load it up, and let us play. There would be a significant amount of development needed to maintain the game, and fix it.
Basically, they can't stand up a couple pre-cu servers and call it a day. They would need to decide either-or. Either go pre-cu, or stay with what they have going. And unfortunately, the lesson they learned from the NGE debocle was to not turn their backs on their paying customers. Well, there are players currently subbing to SWG NGE. They like it, they play it every day, and they pay for it. They can't turn their backs on those customers (again) and change the game again. That would mean they didn't learn their lesson from the first time around. It's been what, 2 years? You want them to throw away 2 years worth of people's gaming achievements to possibly satisfy their old, no longer paying, customers?
It's just not going to happen. SWG has come and gone. Now it's time to look elsewhere for what we want. Hopefully some game maker will make a complex sandbox game for the masses and break away from the WoW effect.
