Lol, so I just came up with a new idea..... how about when Cryptic has an important announcement to its community, they connect to the loudspeaker in Earth Space Docks? They could sounds like the guys on the train stations! That would be so much fun! woooot.

Why does your fleet use the symbol of the Star Wars Rebel Alliance?

i like the idea...

but technicall i dont see how it could be done.

they cant record an audio file and include it in the client updates if it is something important that just popped up.

so prerecorded is pretty much out of the question.

Livestream? That would need a LOT of traffic, a lot more then the usual gaming traffic.


in addition they would reach only the people on SB01 when they realy want to reach everybody ingame.


...oh and that would count as Voiceovers! and we all know Voiceovers are EXPEEEEEEEEEEeeeeEEEeeEEeeeeee....EEEeeeeeeeensive .

imagine yourself walking along on Sol Space station when the PA comes on...

"Ding-dong-ding. Attention C-Store shoppers - todays special are...."

That would be funny once, then annoying for a while, and then I'd finally just tune it all out like all the similar anouncements in the real world.

Now Ferengi in sandwich-boards accosting us on beam-in and doing the hard sell, that'd be awesome.

We were founded in Star Wars Galaxies back in 2003, and we were rebels on the server Wanderhome.
That logo was made back in those days and we will never change it

Oh and we left that ****** game in 2006 because of NGE.

If some Live Important Issue comes up, They already Pop Up a Huge Red or Yellow Banner across the Play Screen whether you are flying, Fighting, searching or what ever. they did that a couple of days back regarding problems with a ship in C-Store. Isn't that fun enough??

What about having a sort of barker that spouts out something akin to "extra extra read all about it"
Then when you converse with this npc it has info about current game news.

They had some pretty good ones in Tabula Rasa at a couple of the bases. It was an homage to M*A*S*H.
