Bought a copy of SWG a few years ago and never pulled it out of the box (it was pre-revision), Was on a fan site a couple weeks ago and apparently the server software went open source and there's already a couple groups running Galaxies servers with the pre-revision world. Am thinking about setting up the emulator and game after my STO sub expires.

Or will it make like a straw hut in a tsunami?
We should kick you in the butt for talking about star wars on a STAR TREK WEBSITE!!!!!!!!

No this thread shouldn't.

Because the model used by SWTOR F2P is how MMOs should be monetized. Give us the single player content free, give us 5mans while leveling, monetize the endgame. Make us pay for vanity items, raids and PVP. Because...

1) Keeps out the AFKers. Who pays to afk, seriously?
2) Hopefully deters scrubs. Hopefully.
3) We directly pay for content, not pay to win, and certainly not lockboxes! Devs are then obliged to keep making more raid and pvp content. Genius right?
4) THERE BE NO LOCKBOXES. Or gameplay depending on luck outside of raid tables. Hopefully.

Group Finder isn't PvP, it's for Operations and flashpoints, the PvP grouper is the same as it is in STO

From one of the recent Q and A s


Quote" We also have a really cool thing called Cartel packs. Cartel packs you buy give you a random assortment of really cool items and a chance to get some of the cooler items that maybe in the game (not powerful, but very cool ? they going to make you look AMAZING!)"


Cartel coins = Cartel packs
Zen = Lock boxes

Like I said, hopefully. But knowing EA, I should've realized they'd just monetize both. And then like PWE they'd have an excuse not to bother with content at all.

We'll see what happens. Hopefully STO can outlive SWTOR, if only because Trek is better.
