    HOLY **edit**!!! Never even saw that...

    17 THOUSAND hours.

    That's 720.5, 24-hour days of being logged ON.

    Over 2-years of the 8-years spent ONLINE 24/7.

    6-hours a day DAILY for 8-years.

     

    Seriously...I bet half the players don't even WORK that many hours over 8 years.

    I think you won the game Obraik :P

    Just think of all the real life money spent on the TCG and paying for trips to fanfare, all for nothing because the game will be gone.

    Sorry to dissapoint but a decent chunk of those Xfire hours are AFK hours.  Over the years, since it really has been the only game I've really played I just left the game logged in with an AFK macro running so I could continue playing when I wasn't busy doing something else.

    As for money wasted?  That's a little ignorant on your behalf.  Who are you to tell me what to spend my money on and what's a waste and what wasn't?   Everything we spend money on is a waste at some point - however, I well enjoyed my holiday to Las Vegas and New York City.

    Hello...I have seen your posts on the official forums. What are you going to be doing for the shutdown? I am thinking about going to one of the hills overlooking Mos Eisley for the shutdown. I figure I can take a screenshot or two before it goes dark.

    Sure, sure. How's that NGE working out for you? It's not even worth arguing over anymore, today your reality ends.

    AFK? Guess that's why you enjoyed the game so much :P  Did you log on when you got home and just let it go or...I'm floored by the 6 hours per day stat. Also, did you start tracking from day 1? On your trip, did you stay logged in or take the game on a laptop? (serious questions, honestly not trying to be an ass)

    And whatever you spent your money on, doesn't matter to me. Nothing is a waste if it's enjoyed...except Twilight movies.

    Remember the arguement from him that SWG was doing well because it was ranking high on x-fire or something?

    Let SWG die already.  TOR is where it's at.  SWG failed.  Not because of the game, but because who ran the game.  Enoough said.  Let it die.  God, I can't believe people still talk about SWG. LOL  Laugh a little bit about this.

    SWG fans are crazy obsessed. Always have been.

    No, they screwed it bad enough it could never recover. I hope other developers take a cue from their mistakes and never ever repeat them... I also hope they take a cue from what they did do right (and they did a good bit right too) and copy of that... but I have low hopes especially after playing TOR (which I won't be buying.)

    I feel like I'm on trial, but.... it's a game, there's not an infinite amount of things to do in the game non-stop so, while I waited for Rebels to regroup or whatever, I'd leave my character in a buff house and come back later.  Many times I'd get caught up with something else I was doing IRL and leave it logged on over night then get home from work the next day and notice it's still running (I don't shut off my PC either).  Yes, I take a laptop with me on trips and yes, there were times where I logged in at a hotel.  There wasn't much time for that while I was in New York (well,really the US east coast) since I was on the road most of the time having a look at the area and visiting some of the historic places.

    Anyway, it's over now...my SWG Xfire stats are forever frozen in time :)
