    Was talking to one of my buddies at College the other day and he says that hardly anyone ever plays with Sony Online anymore.. games like Star Wars Galaxies, EQ2 etc are literally dead?

    This true? what happened?

    No one plays SWG anymore (used to love that game)...but EQ2 and shit is still crazy popular.

    HatShapedHat and I used to run Creature Handler + Bounty Hunter combo.

    He'd have 2 amazingly named Rancors and I was the Bounty Hunter with the scatterpistol maxed out...we'd just keep shooting shots that damage that blue bar (the mind one?) and ROLL people. We also had TKMs too...and just KNOCKDOWN KNOCKDOWN KNOCKDOWN KNOCKDOWN :bowrofl:

    Game had so many bugs too. I made a script that exploited a glitch for CH and gave HatShapedHat mastery in like an hour or two :bowrofl:

    There was also a time on one of the planets where the creatures all got stuck a particular line and we'd just sit there and grind from glitched mobs :bowrofl:

    :rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl: Did the exact same thing. Smuggler was so weak I thought you'd be dealing with actually smuggling..... nope :rofl:. TKM was the shit back in the day used to run trains through people with a BH buddy after I'd KD the guy and he'd crit.

    I had 3 Rancors...."Miss Piggy" "Gonzo" and "Kermit"....as long as you prevented them from growing up you could keep 3 at a time out there


    Oh I also had that extinct creature I named "Brian Fellows"

    Sony fucked SWG in the ass. Once The Old Republic comes out, they'll likely shut all the servers down.

    that game still exists???? :ugh: I'm not trying to be funny either

    I would expect that everquest still existed but I would think anyone who has even a spare second of free time to dedicate to this game probably needs therapy

    It's still up because they don't have any competition on the Star Wars brand. Some people are just in it for the theme more than anything. Soon there will be two options, and no one with a brain will opt to play the lesser of the two. The same thing will happen when Final Fantasy XIV comes out, except Square will still be the ones in control of the entire thing, where as Sony will just have to suck it.

    BioWare is going to crush them as far as StarWars goes, but rather than compete, SoE is going to try and do the same thing to City of Heroes with DC Universe Online. DC Universe Online will likely strive to be everything City of Heroes is only with big name franchise to draw players in. However, it wouldn't surprise me at all if City of Heroes still beats out DC Universe Online. SoE is garbage for the most part. Matrix Online anyone? Didn't think so.
