On Tuesday, July 19, 2011, at 4:00 a.m. PDT all U.S. and European galaxies will be brought down for a Hotfix. The servers are estimated to be down for 4 hours. If this timeframe changes, we'll post an update on the official forums.

When the Hotfix is complete, all galaxies will be live but unavailable while we complete final testing. All galaxies will be made available after that time.

Bonus Everything

  • NOTE: The RLS chance has been increased to 5 times the normal value.

    I just don't see the point. I would like to see the game made frfee so I can justify logging in one last time and taking some screenshots of my Bunker.

    You don't see the point of double everything, but you wanna take screenshots of your bunker? See, I can understand people wanting to still play (for whatever reason) and enjoying the chance to loot whatever it is they wanted, but I don't understand nostalgia with old ss's.

     I hate to say this but in december it will not matter. At this point I dont see the point of double anything to be honest.  Why bother.

    They should make everyone a "blue glowie" as a final slap in the face to those who grinded their way to the flashlight prior to the NGE.

    Just out of pure spite.

    CH, Jedi, Commando, Smuggler, BH, Scout, Doctor, Chef, BE...yeah, lots of SWG time invested.

    would serve them right for acting better than you because they ground out jedi instead of other stuff.

    Double nothing is nothing as it will be in a few months.

    Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy :)

    This seems like a shameless attempt at keeping people subscribed to what should be a f2p game at this point. The fact that they are still charging a sub fee for a game that is confirmed to be shutting down in less than 6 months is fucking ridiculous---errr I mean just like SOE.

    John Smedley is totally about picking your pocket, at all times.  Everything he does is about revenue streams.

    I wholeheartedly agree! (with both of you)

    It seems like a parting gift, really. Double everything, items, etc. as a bunch of presents for the people who've stuck with the game this long. Might as well, since it's not like there's any reason to hold it all back anymore.

    Also, if you still have a Station account, you should have 45 free days due to the security hacking. If so, use it and get your screen shots.

    Release the game source to public domain NOW. There is no reason not to do it.

    There's every reason not to do it. Namely,  both LA and SOE want to keep their source code. That's their right.

    Just because it's shutting down doesn't mean that people are automatically entitled to all the code for the game. It doesn't work that way.

    They wont do that as they would need permission from LA, due to licence agreements, and LA would never allow another Star Wars game around that could detract from their current/upcoming SW titles.  It is basic dollars and cents;  If SWG was around, some people that want a Star Wars experience, that might have went to SWTOR, would stay on the now-free SWG and cost them subs.

     

    For me though, Star Wars online games died when the NGE came around.  NGE was not what I wanted and SWTOR also doesn't seem to be what I want in a game; though it may be a great game in its own rights, that has yet to be seen.
