There hasn't been a true sandbox MMORPG yet and no EVE isn't one either.

SWG was a LIMITED-themepark MMO. SWTOR is a LINEAR-themepark game. "LINEAR" meaning no sandbox elements whatsoever and solely based upon story.

I should note, SWTOR has a great story for each class. Problem is, it hasn't got much else.

Actually, THE most common misconception about SWG was that it was doing fine pre CU/NGE....

Spelling and grammar do matter.I find your lack of real-life skills disturbing.

And the SECOND most common misconception is that SWG was doing horribly before CU hit. The bloom was off the rose and many former players were off checking out the newly-launched WoW and EQ2, yes. But all that histrionics about "tens of thousands of players are abandoning SWG every day!" was a steaming load.  It was still one of the bigger MMOs, it just wasn't pulling WoW numbers; that's what was ticking off LucasArts.

Yeah! It's not a true sandbox until you can first create the universe. Damn posers and their fake sandbox games. ><

Really? I was under the impression it meant I could Terraform the landscape to how I see fit, a la Minecraft.

Was SWG anything like Minecraft in that regard?

That only comes from purists. Much like those that claim the way a game can be only PvP is if its 100% PvP.

Cant count how many times I have stated I wanted open world PvP only to be jumped on by those that believe I am asking for everyone to be flagged PvP 100% of the time. Its like, no...I am asking to be able to flag for PvP anywhere and fight anywhere...only for the argument to start at the beginning again.

It certainly wasn't doing horrible, but it was indeed losing subs. CU/NGE wasnt simply to "get wow numbers".

Hence, we are now full circle back to the most common misconception ;)

I suspect that most MMO games spend the bulk of their operating lifetimes in the state of "losing subs" (what goes up must come down). But there is quite a chasm between simply losing subs and losing so many so fast that drastic corrective action is necessary. The latter was the justification given for CU/NGE, and I just didn't see it. Some changes were called for and indeed were in progress in early 2005. Then someone evidently panicked, tossed out the changes in progress and re-wrote them to impose a level-based system that broke quite a lot of things. And the downward spiral accelerated...

Unlike most "modern" MMOs, yes... players could affect the game world in a number of ways: setting up houses, organizing player cities (with shuttleports, town halls and more), putting down harvesters, deploying faction bases full of NPCs, and many other things.  Plus, in the early days, there were "story arcs" that depending on which faction (rebel or empire) completed the most arcs, gained a bonus to how many GCW points were earned.  On top of that, several of the static NPC faction bases could be turned, depending on which faction could "take it over".

So yes, there were things players could and did do to change how the game world was, on a day to day basis.

 

Compare that to TOR, where the players couldn't change or affect anything, ever.
