it's just sad to think how great SWG could have been if the money invested in SWTOR had been invested in SWG. Add to that 10 years of development and you have a classic game of its genre.

I agree. SWG's sandbox design was years before its time, so who knows how great the game would have been if $OE stayed on course after launch instead of chasing WoW (with the CU/NGE that finally did it in).

On a side note, wouldn't this post be more suitable in the SWG general discussion sub-forum? Just sayin'.

If they put all that money into a graphics update and such for swg we'd all still have a place to call home.

Alex Allen, one of the previous devs of SWG is working on her own project now. On the forum she sometimes mentions that she loved  especially the housing system of SWG.

You may want to check out her recent interview:

Well if SOE upholds their tradition of nerfing great ideas, the next implemention would be SWG Next, which wouldn't be of any comfort to former players.  Action combat, lots of boom booms, and particle effects .. also available for the PS4. Limited controls, and only enough abilities to fit on a controller.

 

But hopes for a really good MMORPG successor are all out, since Disney awarded EA exclusive rights to Star Wars for a long time in the future ..  obviously Disney see's something that everyone else doesn't.

on the course?  The game would have been empty.  Up till NGE they were losing subs at over 10,000 a month.     That is a huge deal.  NGE actually saved the game.  They ended up stablizing. 

 

Heres the thing if you remove Star Wars from SWG what is left?  A sandbox game.  In fact its not much different then Second Life.

If you remove the Star Wars from SWTOR you are left with a bioware game with multiplayer.

LOL! You must be joking! The NGE tanked SWG and the game never recovered. The release of SWTOR finally pulled the game off life support.

LOL indeed. It's always funny to see the NGE fanboys trying to play revisionist history with people that were actually there. The NGE killed SWG. What was left was a shell of a game.

it is funny, the NGE was probably the most singular reason for the games demise, practically overnight over 80 percent of the playerbase quit, to try to even intimate that the NGE stabilised the game is like saying icebergs are good for ships.

 Sure the game had problems before hand, the CU was also a problematic change to the game that also didnt work, but at least it didnt completely destroy it, which the NGE clearly did. If they had fixed some of the bugs and issues with a few of the different talent trees etc, instead of trying to rewrite the game, then SWG would probably still be around today, and probably in a far healthier state than SW;TOR currently is.

 But we'll probably never see a game like it ever again, it was too ahead of its time and i don't think SOE really knew what they were doing with it once the core team had moved on.

Glad you care.

What’s really pathetic are the former NGE fan boys now trash talking SWTOR.

They have themselves to blame. SWTOR is the product of a refined NGE on steroids.

Well, I took your bait and enjoyed to reply. J

I suppose you are one of those feeling guilty for the so called success of the NGE.

At that time it was mostly SWG-players against SWG-players, with different ideas of what direction to take a game. Today, the same question is asked among the whole MMO community. But I’m sure you are aware of that already.

SWG was great. Pretty much any version of it was better - in my opinion obviously - than any other MMO.

That statement doesnt make sense.

I can enjoy both versions of SWG and i dont hate either side.

 Fair enough, that's why I wrote "suppose".
