    Love SWG Legends.  Been playing it off and on for a few years.  Plays well and plenty of players around even on the starter space station.  Each class has it's own tutorial story that overlaps some with other classes.  

    Played SWGEMU but I don't want to back to all that grinding. 

    Legends gives one free character boost to 80 and you get all the reward perks that came out over the years of the original game, some perks, only for one character other for all characters you create, so every character gets that space yacht.  :-)
    Does Legends have a pay system?
    I haven't spent anything on it in all these years.  I do think they take donations.

    I really wanted to like this game but man, the combat pretty much ruined it for me. I played a Jedi to the mid 40s and every fight was the same simple rotation, over and over again. That might not have been a problem if the animations weren't so inconsistent (sometimes firing properly, other times not at all). The way they sped things up with the NGE didn't translate too well with those pre-cu animations, imo. After seeing that I wouldn't really be getting any other abilities and that my current rotation was more or less what I'd be using at end-game, I decided to pack it in. It's a  shame too because the game pretty much ticks every other box I have (aside from perhaps having more meaningful solo content, I guess).

    I know this post comes off as really negative but I'm not joking when I say I REALLY want to like this game. I've just become such a snob in terms of combat these days. It's more of a personal problem than anything, and it's frustrating.

    Isn't that pretty standard for most games?  I've got a commando and it's just the same attacks over and over as the cool down clears, but that's just how it plays.   I also play LotRO as a warden and that combat is a kin to typing the same letters over and over again.

    Might I suggest Age of Conan melee or even pvp there since you might find it more exciting.

    Thats because thats NGE, PreCU you had 250 skill points you could spend on mixed professions. so while you might be a bounty hunter you could also spec into carbiner and have a bunch of carbine specific skills, you could also train into pistoler and then stack skills from there on top of your bounty hunter pistol.

    Yeah the system was imbalanced because you could stack a lot of skills of a specific type, but soe got lazy and just gave up, then they got lazy and gave up again and threw everything out so ever profession was just a cookie cutter.

    Man honestly pre cu was solid, i was sad the day soe decided to move away from it. Honestly it was because of the jedi the game would have been so much better with out the holo grind unlocking...

    I might download and a give it a go, always heard about SWG.  Figured it's on my MMORPG bucket list to give it a try.

    Is their open world pvp?  Or is it like battlegrounds?

    Both.   

    You can set yourself to always be in a Pvp state and will be able to attack others that are the same / be attacked by others.  So Open World.

    They also have certain cities that 'get invaded' on a schedule and you can go there and either do PvE for / against or go Pvp for / against.

    There are also some battleground arena's scattered about, but on the whole I don't think they get alot of use.

    Up in space it's pretty much the same set up plus they have one whole 'map' where you go Pvp active if there.

    Sunrunner 2 isn't bad. The community is better than Bas and they have additional content. There also aren't as many people afk'ing end game stuff all the time.

    I don't play the emu anymore. I played pre-cu and gave the emu a try for a little while, but I just don't think it will ever compare to live. There is no real pvp and the macro abuse is pretty game-breaking. The community was really great when I played on live as well.. just don't think I will ever find anything similar in a mmo these days.
