Living Legacy, more like come play our games for free so we can show our stock holders that we are still relevent. Funny thing is, not even making their games free for any amount of time is enough to get me to install their trash on my pc again. Not after the NGE. Screw me once, shame on you. Screw me twice, shame on me.

It's amazing to me that Smedley still has a job in this industry. He has ruined a game based on one of the strongest IP's in commercial history, yet continues forward like the sleazy used car salesman he is.

Smedley. The name is a joke among video game players across the globe.

Seriously, SOE was given a gold mine. Millions of American children grew up primed for a Star Wars mmo, playing with action figures, running around with toy lightsabers and blasters. And when the oppurtunity arose for those millions of hours of childhood fantasy to come to life in a virtual world, not once, but twice, Smedley tells us that "the customers do not know what they want from a Star Wars mmo".

Every mmo I play I run across a loud, resopunding agreement with these opinions. It's the easy way to break the ice with a new group, getting people to talk about how bad SWG is and how Smedley ruined it.

Hopefully, the rumored KOTOR mmo will see light, and it will be hugely successful. The IP is still strong, and fewer things would bring such a quick smile to my face than to see millions of Star Wars fans playing in a REAL mmo.

That, and the sudden, overdue announcement that SOE has fired Smedley.

A lot of pre-NGE players of SWG hold John as responsible for many of the problems that the game has had over the years. He has a habit of talking up how great the game is and then pulling the rug out from under the player base. Gamers should take what he says with a grain of salt IMHO.

Me too John, sorry.

Fix what you screwed up, give the players what they wanted and then we'll talk moving forward, but until then, SWG is the best maintained MMO graveyard (with houses for tombstones) in the industry.

John you can pass all the false statments in the world. It will change nothing. The fact is you have ignored the SWG community for some time now and you continue to screw over the players. I stood up for you a couple of years ago but I will not do it this time.

Smed isnt a major part of SWG development anymore (thank god), and as a result, things are defo on the upswing, loads of new content has, and is, in the pipe for SWG, that much is true, but we didnt need to hear that from him, lets just hope he runs off to ruin another mmo, and leave SWG to build a proper future for itself, now that most of the NGE mess has been swept away.
