Jump to Lightspeed Date

The Star Wars Galaxies Website (thanks Frans) announces October 27 as the launch date for the Jump to Lightspeed expansion that will bring spaceflight to Star Wars Galaxies:

LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment are pleased to confirm that Star Wars Galaxies: Jump to Lightspeed will release on October 27th, 2004.

Haden Blackman, producer, LucasArts: "LucasArts is thrilled with the Jump To Lightspeed expansion, a product of our strong and ongoing partnership with SOE. This first expansion delivers the fun and engaging space combat experience players expect from Star Wars."

Jump to Lightspeed adds a whole new level of fast-paced game play to the established Star Wars Galaxies ground-based MMORPG. Thousands of players will now be able to join their friends in exploring and battling across 10 deep space sectors in over 20 different customizable spacecraft, including iconic X-wings, TIE fighters and "Millennium Falcon" type transports.

You know whats funny, back when I used to play EQ they would always release these patches (this was after SOE took over for Verant), and they would always fuck more things up in the patch then before it, and subsequently they would have to patch the patch, and this cycle continued throughout the entire game.

That was like 3 years ago, I just recently visited their forums to get info on their newest expansion, and I learned, aside from the fact that the task system is total bullshit and doesnt help you gain solo exp for shit, that they screwed up almost all the new epics, and they released a patch to try and fix some of the problems. Guess what, that patch followed suit exactly like the patches of old EQ.

My point? SOE Seems to be performing exactly as they were many years ago. I thought they would have changed after 3 or 4 years experience, but it still seems they cant manage to fix one problem without breaking the stuff that used to work fine.

On top of all the nerfing and general disregard for their player-base by the GM's, I have pretty low expectations for EQ2.
