Star Wars Galaxies Endgame Plans

The Sony Station Forums have word that the closure of Star Wars Galaxies on December 15 will involve an "epic" conclusion to the galactic civil war in the Star Wars MMORPG (thanks Eurogamer). This will be open to all players with an active paid subscription, an active Game Pass, or SOE All Access Game Pass in good standing as of September 15, as word is: "Recurring SWG Game Passes will not be billed after September 15, 2011." Here's some detail on the plan:

Beginning in September, the ongoing Galactic Civil War will escalate further as both sides seek to decisively win the epic conflict. In addition to all of the current Galactic Civil War activities, new events and contests will provide you with new ways to earn Galactic Civil War points and advantages you can use to help your side win.

At a time and date yet to be announced, but prior to December 15th, all Galactic Civil War points will be tallied by server. The side with the higher score will win the game, and the galaxy, for each server, as well as change the way the game will end and what happens in the final moments. Celebrations will be in order for those who win and, for the losers, letís just say theyíll be going out with a bang.

Neutral players will also see new decorations in the Storyteller system that will allow them to host their own shutdown events if they choose to opt out of the final battles in the Galactic Civil War.

That's why they made their game 3000 years before basically anything else we know about in the star wars universe(aside from setting)...Apparently it is cyclical

And yet apparently every pathetic trope attached to the series is rehashed... Again...

That's the worst thing about Star Wars (excepting the novels which are, by and large, miles better than what Lucas has turned the movies in to), they just keep reusing things over and over as if nothing changes...

Star destroyer analogs, check
Wookie sidekicks, check
I've got a bad feeling about this.. check

Back OT, so long Galaxies, you died a long time ago (in a galaxy far far away) and it's finally time for SOE to turn off the life support.

If I remember the correct way to send this off would be...

1. Drive a stake through its heart
2. Behead the body.
3. Burn the corpse.

At least that's how I think you handle the undead.

And to think Alec Guiness called it horrible tripe at the time. One could only imagine what he'd have to say now. Well, not say so much as vomit violently all over.

You didn't hear? that dialog has been replaced. Luke speaks instead:

"Hey dad, hand me my lightsaber---it's the one that says 'bad muthafukka' on the bottom...HEY!...Stand still, Palpy...this is gonna hurt you way more than me, bro..."

Wanting it to keep up with the times, making Luke all gangsta and all.

Let's keep this all in perspective now. This was the man who originally replaced Wookies with Ewoks to begin with in RotJ.

Thatis the main reason why Empire Strikes Back remains my favorite of the entire series.

This caused me to cancel my Blu Ray preorder.

What the...that's horrible. It's like taking one of the stupid parts of the new trilogy and dubbing it over the top of one of the biggest scenes in the old one. I can't even begin to understand why they'd do that

Neither side CAN win, because of established Star Wars canon. That was the whole fucking problem with Galaxies to begin with. (although they raped canon plenty of times during the game's lifecycle.)

Edit: MORE stupid changes to the movies? Someone please take a huge fucking shit in George Lucas' stupid beard.

I agree. Think that was the final straw for me and the original trilogy.


Agreed, I canít understand him changing this part. The Emperor scream as hes falling to his death screaming was all the enjoyment I needed in that scene.

Lucas needs to be euthanized, for the good of humanity.

That's what happens if the Rebels win. If the Empire wins, it is only changed slightly by everyone dancing around eating Ewoks going "Yum yum!"

Now I know who to root for.

Blue, do you have a recipe on how to cook Ewok?

The only real way to have an End epic battle is to have real deaths in the game. Once your charís dies, its dead, no coming back fight until the bitter end until none are left to kill. Whoever is left standing are the final victors. Although I know there will be hold outs not wanting to fight until the final personal left. But I think they should just heard everyone into a final area for that epic battle to take place. Anyone straggling and not wanting to fight is removed by the GMs.
