Sandbox is your only hope for a decent mmo ;)

So much i loved about SWG, hard to think of anything else being worthy unless they did SWG2 and fix up the bugs add better graphics, undo the NGE, and keep the same mechanics for crafting/housing/and so much more. SWG may have been indepth, but there was so much to do it was a chore or a job, it was casual and you could take all day to do anything. I liked the choice of pvp with their 3 standings ( no fight, faction npc fighting, or full on pvp) where you had the choice not forced on you.

No one. Not now.

There is currently no developer around that would do it justice. Maybe a team of developers from different studios, but they would need to develop at least one game to really get together as a team, and as so many people work on games today, i don't think any single person is ultimately responsible for making it succeed/fail, so yeah.

Else, take any obscure start up, they can't fail more badly then the big studios.

I'll wait to the day's end when the moon is high
And then I'll rise with the tide with a lust for life, I'll
Amass an army, and we'll harness a horde
And then we'll limp across the land until we stand at the shore

Consider your options and post what studio your choice would be... or even what key talents in the gaming industry :)

 

It's fun to dream...

 

I would tell them to forget the idea and focus more on good SP and C-Op games as the MMO bubble is about to burst for real.

But if they put a gun to my head and told me to picm a studio or they would redecorate my wall with me, i have to go with Mythic with the stipulation that they will be building a PvP game and stay the foxtrot uniform charlie kilo away from any PvE content., i would then turn to Dark Horse to create a new section of lore through a series of comics for a yet unexplored era of play that the game will take place in.

 

Design wise combat would happen on several world through "war fronts" in essence randomly generated maps that would change once a week as war "moved" across the planet.

 

But as i said first. it is for the best if no one tries this again.

I don't play EVE, but follow the company.  I did recently jump into EVE and create a character with their amazing CC.  This character looks a lot like me.  The options for the face were insane.

 

Great video, BTW.  Thanks for posting it.

Np glad you enjoyed :) and yeah their CC is incredible.  That's what I want my SWMMORPG to look like, not like... well, this:

This game's art style just seems very... lazy.

Eve Online has the ugliest avatar I have ever seen in any game:

Correction - what their CC allows some people who want to look ... different... can be the ugliset avatar lol.  That avatar is friggin horrible...yikes.  I've never understood why people do that sort of stuff but I guess there is a 'Just because I can' crowd.

LA said all future game development would be done in house. This was of course just prior to Papa Disney taking over so that might have gone out the window.

i have to agree with this. the only reason both of them bombed so badly is because Lucas Arts wouldnt keep thier fingers out of it. If Bioware had gotten to do whatever it wanted, it would have been a much greater success. (as well as SWG)

I'm sorry, but this is a load.  You make it sound like it was all someone else's fault that Bioware made a crappy MMO.  Listen even with Lucas' hand in there to guide the story, Lucas did not design the game play aspects.  You guys are very much mistaken on how much of a hand Lucas and his company have in this.  Bioware must own the fact that they made a lackluster themepark MMO, in a field full of decent themeparks.  Of all the games to come out in the last couple years, this was by far the worst AAA offering.

A sure sign that you are in an old, dying paradigm/mindset, is when you are scared of new ideas and new technology. Don't feel bad. The world is moving on without you, and you are welcome to yell "Get Off My Lawn!" all you want while it happens. You cannot, however, stop an idea whose time has come.

To be honest, I don't want to see anymore MMO SW games, it'll just end up the with the same fate as SWG and SWTOR, I wouldn't mind see more Jedi Knight type games again so give it to Raven.

Not a shred of evidence exists in favor of the idea that life is serious.

Valve, but it would never happen.

They know a dead horse when they see it.

If the Internet proves anything, it's that nerds would have been bullies in real life if they'd had the muscles.

We can only show them the path, but they have to be the ones to take it.

I'd probably start up my own company. Seeing as the IP has hit rock bottom in the MMO world. Even a pen & paper MMO would beat SW:TOR. Thinking of Star Wars and MMO makes me think like the politician that lost and said on TV, "Of course the new government is gonna be better, given what was there before, it would be hard to even look bad." And he was right because every dubious mesure or procedure by the government is met with "at least its not as bad as the liberals". 

So the next MMORPG with the Star Wars name on the box will be great! But if I had to chose a developper, Valve would be my first try.

Boycotting EA. Why? They suck, even moreso since 2008.

Dead horse?  Disney is about to make Star Wars a household topic again, and in fact they already have by purchasing the IP.  If they make a great Episode VII, it's game on again for the whole franchise.  Tor is not going to be the game that people want to play when these movies come out.  Not without significant changes.

A new Jedi Knight would be awesome! Actually let EA apply their Frostbite engine to Jedi Knight!

How epic would that be!

I don't know if you guys are keeping up with all the Star Wars industry talk, but Disney is planning to go nuts with Star Wars, and even talking about doing multiple movies per year that focus on characters, similar to all the super hero movies.
