Dear Star Wars Galaxies™ Account Holder,

Due to the overwhelming success of the recent Free Character Transfer Service, we want to inform you that on October 15, 2009, at 5:00 PM PT, Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) will close the following 12 Star Wars Galaxies servers:


Corbantis
Europe-Infinity

Kauri
Kettemoor
Lowca
Naritus
Scylla
Tarquinas

Wanderhome
Character creation will be disabled on the affected servers beginning September 15, 2009 at 4:00 AM PDT.

In accordance with the server closure date, the Free Character Transfer service has been extended through October 15. 2009. Between September 15, 2009 and October 15, 2009 at 4:59 PM PT all characters on the affected servers are eligible for a one way, one time Free Character Transfer* to any of the remaining thirteen (13) Star Wars Galaxies servers.

We appreciate your loyalty and commitment to Star Wars Galaxies and value having you in the community.

STAR WARS GALAXIES™ SERVER CLOSURE F.A.Q.

 

Which servers will be closing?

The following 12 servers will be closing on Thursday, October 15 2009:

- Corbantis

- Europe-Infinity

- Intrepid

- Kauri

- Kettemoor

- Lowca

- Naritus

- Scylla

- Tarquinas

- Tempest

- Valcyn

- Wanderhome

When will these 12 servers be closed?

These servers will be closing on Thursday, October 15, 2009, at 4:40 PM Pacific Time.

Why are you closing these 12 Star Wars Galaxies Servers?

The Free Character Transfer Service launched earlier this year with the intention of allowing players to transfer to servers with more active communities, creating a more vibrant and memorable Star Wars Galaxies gaming experience. The Free Character Transfer Service was a phenomenal success, leaving the less active servers in an undesirable position. In order to help streamline the current and new user experience, we have made the decision to close the less active servers and focus on the thriving Star Wars Galaxies servers.

Can I move my characters off of these servers?

Yes, you can move any character from the 12 identified servers up until Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 4:59 PM PT. Please see http://starwarsgalaxies.station.sony.com/freects/ for terms and conditions.

Will I be charged to move my characters from these servers?

No. If you take advantage of the Free Character Transfer Service before Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 5:00 PM PT, you will not be charged to transfer your characters to one of the 13 destination servers including:

- Ahazi

- Bloodfin

- Bria

- Chilastra

- Eclipse

- Europe-Chimaera

- Europe-FarStar

- Flurry

- Gorath

- Radiant

- Shadowfire

- Starsider

- Sunrunner

Where can I find out more information on the Free Character Transfer Service?

http://starwarsgalaxies.station.sony.com/freects/

What if my account is inactive/closed but I want to move my characters off of these servers?

You must reactivate your account by visiting the www.station.sony.com and entering a valid credit card or Game Time card. Once your account is active, paid, and in good standing you will be able to transfer your character using the Free Character Transfer Service through October 15, 2009.

What happens if I am not able to transfer my characters from these servers before October 15th 2009, can I move my characters after October 15th 2009?

Beginning October 16th, 2009 at 12:01 AM PT you will be able to contact Customer Support and for the standard Character Transfer fee of $50.00 you will be able to schedule a transfer for your character, eligible structures and inventory.

Please be aware that the Character Transfer Service from closed servers does not guarantee that all inventory items will be transferred. Due to the unique nature of moving a character from a closed server, the Character Transfer Service may take additional time to process.

For more information on the Character Transfer Service visit: https://store.station.sony.com/cts/...ertransfers.jsp

What if I don’t want to change servers?

Unfortunately, if you’re on a server that’s slated to be closed you will have to make the move in order to continue playing Star Wars Galaxies.

I like playing the game by myself and don’t care how many players are on my particular server at a given time. Can you just leave me be and let me keep playing?

Sorry, but in an effort to improve the gameplay experience for everyone, all characters on the identified servers must be moved. We encourage everyone to take advantage of the Free Character Transfer Service before October 15, 2009 so that you can move your character at no charge.

Does this mean you’re shutting down Galaxies?

No, not at all. We have lots of new content and updates planned for Galaxies and remain committed to making the game an enjoyable and engrossing experience. The server closure is an effort to improve the gameplay experience for all of our players.

You gotta wonder who the **edit** proof reads their press releases. Overwhelming success huh? lol, If the FCTS was truly an overwhelming success I'd think they'd be keeping the servers OPEN or opening new ones. SoE has a funny way of defining "success" I guess.

 

PS...I posted this already

They just have the rule of using the two words "overwhelming success" in every announcement they do, and that was probably the most suitable place to fit them in this time

LOL! I need to try that...

Due to the overwhelming success of your analysis, I too will begin claiming even the greatest of my life's failures to be overwhelming successes.

  • My 401k now vs. 2 years ago = overwhelming success! 
  • My recent car accident = overwhelming success! 
  • Buying my house for 3x's its current value = overwhelming success!
  • 0-3 start for the football team I'm coaching = overwhelming success!

Hmmm...I do feel better :P

And the end begins. Closing down servers is always the sign that the game is on its last legs and the company will soon shut it down. They lie and say that isn't what will happen but it always is. Every MMO I've played that eventually got shut down started by closing servers first.

Each man must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, which course is patriotic and which isn't. You cannot shirk this and be a man. To decide against your conviction is to be an unqualified and inexcusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men label you as they may. ~Mark Twain

I feel ya.  Mine had their first game against the best team in the league this past weekend.  First two drives started with a sack followed by a fumble (second drive my qb actually handed the ball off to the DE).  So I guess 40-12 thrashing = overwhelming sucess (for the other team).

BOT, this looks like the first nail in the coffin of SWG.

EXACTLY!!! 

This is FAR from an "overwhelming success"...this is finally the admittance of failure by SoE...they failed at STAR WARS...Jar Jar Binks couldn't **edit**-up Star Wars...but SoE could lol.

EQ2 hasn't shutdown since merging servers. It's been what 2-3 years ?  Hel they just rolled out a new expansion!

I would like to state that in no way shape or form that anything I receive from SOE influences my opinion about SWG or their company. I’m pretty much a typical average player enjoying the game.

If anything merging the servers tells you the game still has legs or they just wouldn't have bothered and closed down the game instead. The merger needed to happen even before the NGE because there was lots of empty servers that I remember one of my character being stuck on.

Problem with the game though is it's just not fun anymore because they took what made it unique away which was it's potential as a sandbox mmorpg.

They had too many servers anyways. They thought that 20 was needed, and the game never did well enough to warrant 20. I remember as far back as 2004 when I went to visit another server from Bloodfin I was amazed at how dead cnet was on this server. Even saw a Jedi Padi just chillin afk like it was nothing. Bout time they cleaned up the ghost towns.

Their will be a brief flurry of posts about how popular and active the game is, as the servers that remain open will have population increases from the fleeing refugess of the closing servers.

This will prove the game is an overwhelming success.

Then the populations will begin to dwindle on those servers as well.

Buh-bye SWG.

Well obviously the game still has legs for now...and sure...a lot of us argued that this needed to happen LONG ago. None of that changes that this is the 1st time SoE appears to be throwing in the towel though.

No longer do they care to keep open servers for the possible Update that draws in hoards of players (new and old). No longer do they seem to feel "zombies" will bring in the horror fans they wanted. It's all too apparent that the GCW Update will likely be less than a draw as well...because...lets face it...if hopes were high, they wouldn't close 12 servers.

SoE has always been more interested in the players they didn't have...this is a sign (to me) that they have given up on them as well. SWG's days of trying to expand and attract are done.

Well there are some new games on the way that will help that along anyways. Soon I imagine the only one left playing will be Obraik on the one remaining SWG server, and it will be F2P or limited subscription.

Obvious it's about time, like others said they should have closed some servers years ago and merge the current pop. more closer together. I already thoughtand said  this would happen when the first time they announched the free server transfer, dunno about a half year ago?

I alway's wondered why they kept those pretty empty servers up, but then again it does show they didn't want to take away something even from the lowest pop. server before they could offer a decent character transfer.

"Does this mean you’re shutting down Galaxies?

No, not at all. We have lots of new content and updates planned for Galaxies and remain committed to making the game an enjoyable and engrossing experience. The server closure is an effort to improve the gameplay experience for all of our players."

"Due to the overwhelming success of the recent Free Character Transfer Service"

 

I read that ther transfer service was in fact a success and people on the 12 underpopulated servers did in fact move to the 13 populated servers. How is that interpeted by vets as the game is a overwhelming success?
