They should just open the servers up for free since they are closing them anyway, who would want to pay more money for something that is going to close? :S

I think there should be an invasion of space bats, and everyone gets eaten.

seems quite stupid to me why anyone would want to earn points towards something that will be gone permanently in the near future!

So your team can be winners at the end? How many faction based MMOs out there do you get the chance to win the game for your faction once and for all?

Oh... so you can win an MMO
it just takes 8 years (and thus over 850!!!) to do it...

and if you lose there is no way to start over

Awww, it's gonna be sad to see it go. It was - in original form - the best MMO I've ever played. *nostalgic sigh*

Was SWG any good? Not a huge MMO fan, more of an FPS guy - but would love to play a decent (modern) Star Wars game.

Shadows Of The Empire on the N64 was one of the last Star Wars games I really enjoyed. Going a tad further back in time, Star Wars Supremacy on PC, and an Atari ST game (exact title escapes me) were pretty awesome.

I'm sure a few half arsed SOE patches is little consolation for the entire game and all their characters being gone forever.

@Tripwired : SWG in its original form was the best MMO implementation there has ever been.
You can still play the SWG EMU - not %100 but it does have some of the better features such as a community.
The SWG CU and NGE that followed where SOE - LA's attempt at eating away at wows players........

I for one am not wasting my time or money going there again.

I never liked it but plenty of folks did, I think it was one of the classic 'Here is the game universe, kbai' style of games like Ultimate Online. I can see why they are closing it though, SWTOR is going to consume the last of the player base pretty much completely.

Not down to Sony though. I'm sure they would keep it up and running if they could. I suppose Lucas Arts don't want competition from this Star Wars game when SW:TOR ships. Seems kind of stupid to me though, as one game is a sandbox and the other is a theme park. Both COULD coexist quite happily. I don't know why they decided not to renew the licence.

Hope those folks still playing enjoy the last few months.
