Been many many years since I was part of SWG, the best MMO I ever had the pleasure of playing. But a lot as changed and most veterans have accepted that now. But I've been hearing some praise towards the new Development team working on SWG and have been considering another visit. Trouble is, it's been so long that I'd fully expect to get lost the minute I jump in. So I'm looking for some advice.
If I'm honest, most of the pleasure I obtained from SWG back in the day came from Guilds and player cities. Now I know a lot as changed and if I can recall correctly, 'ghost town' cities were gotten rid of by the developers. But I sense that being part of a social and possibly even roleplaying guild might actually help me gel into SWG again. They were the aspects I enjoyed most in SWG. I would love to be able to create my own special character again and be part of a thriving, social and interesting guild. I'm not totally sure on how many people still play SWG, a mate of mine checked it out about 2 months back and informed me that cities and servers were mostly dead to my disappointment.
So I'm not sure about that, but I would like some advice on if I did return. I'd most probably return as a human character, never could roleplay any of the other races to well and I'm not the best roleplayer about (as in I'm not a Star Wars Super Fan, I'm simply a fan). But I would like to hear what SWG is like at the moment, I was told that the market is a bust. I use to spend so much of my time harvesting and selling in SWG and absolutely loved every minute of it, I spent so much time that I never really developed my character to any massive degree. He was never one class, he was just a human harvester who could handle himself if danger came calling and I liked it that way.
If anyone as any good advice, maybe even returning veterans themselves then that would be brilliant.
