Nor did I. I nearly wish they'd go freemium just so I could piddle with it again. I left prior to the "Combat Upgrade", so I have no clue what got borked.

I'm having a LOT of fun playing as a Smuggler. So much fun in fact, that any day I expect SoE to gut the class and completely re-design it. I have no rational basis for that expectation - that thought exsists solely due to the experiences I heard from people who had things like that happen to them over six years ago. There's a part of me that wants to believe those days are over. But only time will tell...

The thing about Glistam is that when he shows up, you know it's "getting late"

Sometimes your buddies stand by you through thick and thin. Sometimes they leave you stranded in the middle of a desert with no clothing or gear.



My spaceship go boom.



Space lasers are flying everywhere!



Some Tie Fighter wreckage.



A little music party as we levelled Entertainers from 5 to 90 in less than 2 days.

Fairly defeat a player in space pvp combat - Not even close. Even my son did better at that than I did.
Fairly defeat a player in ground pvp combat - Nope.
Shoot down an enemy ship from the ground with my missile launcher - Completed!
Learn the crafting system and craft class-specific items - Completed!
Raise up at least one pet to be a useful companion - Completed!
Complete the Rebel Theme Park - Got a little more than halfway.
Complete the Legacy Quest - Never even touched this. Still stuck in the Naboo quests.
Have a blast - Completed!
Take pictures for posterity - I've got hundreds to sort through - I'll get a couple posted eventually.
Participate in the big end game event - Definately there.
Find a new outfit - Sure, if a new shirt counted!
Get some useful attachments for my armor and pistol slots - Never found anything usable for the items I had.
Entertainer level 90! - Completed, and what an awesome class that was! I wish I had realized that earlier in the game.
Defeat a Krayt Dragon - Completed many times over. We made them our bitches.


Star Wars Galaxies shut down the servers at 2400 hours on December 15, 2011. I'm very sad to see it go. I don't think there's a game out there currently which has the variety or role-playing potential this one did. I know nothing that I've seen or heard so far about ToR compares to what I experienced in SWG these last 6 months, and I feel like I only barely scratched the surface of the game's potential. I hope the people responsible for the final version of SWG get an opportunity to make a new MMO that has the same role-playing focus - I'll play that game in a heartbeat.

I know most of the rest of you who experienced SWG in those first few years don't have anything positive to say, but it really was a great game here at the end. It may have taken SoE seven years, but they finally got it right. All of you who wanted that Star Wars MMO experience and refused to even consider coming back into Star Wars Galaxies seriously sold yourselves short by refusing to give it that last chance. And I'm disappointed that I didn't get to experience this with you.

It was amazing when it launched as well! It just went to crap pretty quick after launch.

Screenshots from the last few days/nights of the game:

The final Galactic Civil War scores



We participated in the battle on Hoth, at Echo Base

















We took our battleship, the Exordium, and joined a group of players in a pvp Battle of Endor event, in space













Speaking of Endor, when the shield generator has been destroyed, here's what the Death Star looked like from planet-side.



We found and defeated more Krayt Dragons than we could count.











The Empire sent a star destroyer to Coronet in an attempt to take the city back from the Rebels













Some odds and ends...

In Glistam's house, I set up the main room for dancing and entertainment.





One of my 3 favorite ships.



The second of my three favorite ships (the third one is a Naboo Fighter, shown earlier).





A few shots of my main character, Glistam.











Several shots of my alt, Emiev Kirea.



















And finally, here's a group shot of us as we played during those last few days where the game was active.

I knew that my dancing Wookie in SWG was canon!
