Re: star wars galaxies?

I want to know if you have to play it online or if you can play it as a game on your own computer at least in part?

there are no star systems slave 1 can't reach, and there's no planet I can't find. There's nowhere in the galaxy for you to run. Might as well give up now.    -Boba Fett

Re: star wars galaxies?

I play Galaxies and I have not seen anywhere you can play offline, you have to join a server, there is a cost, it's around $14 / month $40 / 3 months $140 / 1 year but don't quote me on that.

Re: star wars galaxies?

There is a free 14 day trial if u really are serious about playing. But i'm never goin back because they ruined the game a couple years back, now barely anybody plays. But its a fun game still i guess, I'm just completely biased against it now. They should have never done the combat "upgrade"

Re: star wars galaxies?

yea i agree once they made it so any one could be a jedi from the start ruined it, i liked the fact u hadda do certain things tho i love the trial for the new version because if you choose bounty hunter u take your bounties from boba!

Re: star wars galaxies?

yes i play on Europe-Infinity server im in USA but that was one it suggested and i took it hehe.i been playin a little over 2 years and i still find alot to do and theres new content and expansions added some. and no u cant play offline, and yes its $14.99 a month to play. ma character is ma avatar here in the brown and silver mando armour, his name is Jot and a bounty hunter. yes a lot of people left the game a couple years ago, however now the game has been through alot of changes and has been changed back to almost the same as it was b4. there are a whole lot of new players as well as a lot of vets that have returned. i think alot of u guys here would like the game as u can play as a bounty hunter and wear mando armour but its really hard to get hehe. u can hunt other players by takin bounties form a bounty hunter terminal(alot of jedis to hunt too hehe). also u can fly a KSE firespay as an ace pilot for IMperials or Rebels or Neutral......Edit: o eyea almost forgot there is a 14-day free trail goin on now too.

Re: star wars galaxies?

Ya, but they made it into the typical MMO by making it level based and taking away the originality of the whole system. You used to be able to use certain weapons to raise xp in that weapon so you could get the next box in the skill tree. Then you could decided whether to use pistols and become a pistoleer or mix classes like marksman and scout to be a bounty hunter. They also took out my favorite class, Creature Handler, and also made it 100% easier to do everything in the game. It used to take time and effort to become a jedi or a great Bounty Hunter, but now you can get everything quick. They ruined the game thanks to the minorities complaining, and lost the majority of their players.

Re: star wars galaxies?

eyea i used to be master bounty hunter/master carbineer and there was a lot of cool stuff then.but its a new game now and myself and alot of others are coping and actually creature handler is comin back now and craftin system is back the way it was with alot of new stuff added which has brought alot of those players that left back. and eyea i used to like just huntin jedi when it was hard to unlock a jedi character but its kinda cool now that u can hunt jedi, officers, smugglers, medics and all the other proffesions. also there is a smuggling system that finally has been added and is pretty cool, plus smugglers can be hunted while there on smugglin missions i likes that hehe.

Re: star wars galaxies?

during my time playing swg i had mastered: entertainer, dancer, musician, image designer, chef, artisan, merchant, doctor, medic, marksman, rifleman, and bounty hunter.  i was well on my way to getting jedi.  then came the nerf bat of nge.  i quit november 16th 2005.  give me back a system where I get to chose how I develop MY character, and i'll come back to play.

Re: star wars galaxies?

What was the upgrade that everyone hates so much?

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: star wars galaxies?

I completely agree saint_nasty. They know they made a mistake or they wouldn't be fixing it, so why not just revamp backwards?

And Draco the "Upgrade" that everyone hates was called the "combat upgrade". It started a chain reaction that changed the usual system to a level based one that had people scrambling to raise their level instead of trying to advance in their profession. This all lead to an even bigger revamp which made it so that you lvl through a class you choose at the beginning of your creation, instead of a dynamic skills and attribute tree you fill gradually. And so in the end everybody left... then they realized their idiotic mistakes and tried their hardest to bring the old game back, but it was too late. THE END.

Re: star wars galaxies?

Thank you for clearing that up for me.

take it easy baby take it as it comes

Re: star wars galaxies?

although i wasn't the biggest fan of the level system in CU (combat upgrade), i was still able to mix and match skills/professions and make the character i wanted to play.  my plan was to grind myself into a gimped out jedi/dancer cuz that sounded like fun to me (eventually i would have ground out a full template jedi).

then NGE (new game enhancement) happened,it was the second time the core of the game was completely gutted and replaced in 6 months.  this time, however, they took away my choice to customize the abilities of my character.  the game went from 30+ professions that i could more or less mix and match as i pleased (and if i wanted to change at any time if i put in the effort to drop skills and learn new ones) to 9 cookie cutter "iconic" classes.  before, i could have played a character that was a bounty hunter and a chef.  they took that away from me and said i could only be one or the other, and that i'd be identical to every one else of the same class i was forced to decide between.
