They had such a good thing going, and now in their greed to try to catch up with WoW, they have destroyed the game. How do you manage to screw up the Star Wars IP? You have a giant, dedicated audience already built in. You just need to make a decent game, morons.

It's even easier than that. All they had to do was create an EASY game. It's not actually about the game, it's about the revenue. Just make a game where it's easy to reach levelcap and raise the levelcap with expansions every 6 months. EQ got half this right but while it had a few hundred thousand subscribers SWG should have had millions. The problem was they gave the game to a company that typified the genre in the West at the time but who really only catered to hardcore players. WOW milked the casual players and pretty much pissed over the Verant business model.
