    Christ... the announcement was made on the 24th of June. You found this on the DAY? It has 44K views.

    In other words there`s a 99.98% chance that any given person on this site has not seen it.... given VERY favourable assumptions in your direction.

    Hey, if you play an mmorpg for quite some time, it`s an investment, I never liked SWG myself but if EQII were to shut down, I`ld be bummed too. Just not that emo about it though, I have to admit.

    They did this to an MMO I used to play called "Earth and Beyond" it was big in the UK, but didn`t do well in America.

    The people that liked it... Liked it a lot. So much that they made a website dedicated to getting the game back on line and collected a lot of money in an attempt to buy the servers from EA. They wouldn`t entertain the idea of selling it.

    But...

    They said we could try to rebuild the servers from scratch if we wanted to.

    We did. The game is online and anyone that wants to play can play it for free now.

    Here is a link to the forum. Enjoy.

    "World of Warcraft players should look at this and realize their future!"

    Yeah, except Star Wars Galaxies only ever reached about 1 million subscribers whereas WoW has reached 12 million. WoW will probably only shut down when Blizzard releases its next MMO.

    On the other hand, if I found out WoW was gonna be shut down, I`d be sad for a few minutes, then go read a book or something.

    Oh, I feel for her. I really do. But not because her game is being shut down. No I feel for her because she` grown an attachment of this magnitude toa video game. Is there a social aspect? I`m sure there is. but this... this kind of a reaction is just... wow.

    This is why I quit playing MMORPG games a decade ago, I knew Everquest wouldn`t last after WoW came out and wasn`t willing to waste more time and money on a another game that I knew would eventually be superseded.

    If you`re playing a 5 year old or older MMORPG, Get out now while you can, you`ll save yourself tears and a lot of money.

    Come on seriously? I played Ultima Online for like 12 yeas and started when I was 15. I am like 29 now and I gave it up after all those years no problem. People like this are scary as hell.

    But hey at least one thing is true. We all want to cry after any kind of sony experience.

    As funny as this is, it`s easy to imagine what it`s like for her. She has literally built her life around this game and now it`s come to a screeching halt. She probably doesn`t have many friends at school, doesn`t have many life skills or talents to go off of. This is literally her life down the drain, but that`s the fate of a temporary medium like video games.

    Also, let`s hold up this problem to one like having your family killed in Sudan, or being evicted from your home in Palestine. People have much bigger problems than video games and when they are compared this sort of reaction does seem quite silly.

    I played EvE-online for over 5 years before calling it quits, I may go back, just because I have a hanger full of ships I`ve yet to get blown up.

    This is really sad, I get what she means, but come on. I`ve lost two loved ones to cancer, and may lose a third very soon. There is so much more to life than a pixelated character. Hardly the worse thing that could happen to someone.

    (As for the money, I was able to play for years for free, simply by trading isk for game time cards, perfectly legal in EvE)

    Regardless of whether it is a video game or in real life...everything changes, nothing is static...everything comes to an end eventually and you move on.

    I have to admit though, I spent the first 2 minutes trying to figure out if this was a boy or a girl..

    SWTOR is coming out. They HAVE to kill this game if they want your subscription. TOR is not > than swg. Mystic and EA are heading this project. The same retards that flubbed on Warhammer mmo. Eitherway, it will be good for the concept(even though Skywalker was supposedly the last hope for the Jedi.) Join the DARKSIDE, they have your Starwars game.

    "I feel for her. I played SWG from launch until they shot the game in the face with the NGE and CU. On the other hand, maybe this is a sign to go outside and make real friends."
    They shot the game in the face long before CU and NGE. It happened back when they caved to the whiners and made it 1000% easier to unlock Jedi. Everything went rapidly downhill from there.
