Yesterday, I read on Twitter that Star Wars The Old Republic has, as of this week, been stay longer than Star Wars Galaxies was. I actually needed to run the mathematics on this as a result of it’s so baffling, but it surely’s true: SWG launched in June of 2003 and was closed in December of 2011. SWTOR launched in December of 2011 and right here we’re in June 2020.
In fact, a part of the rationale it feels unreal to me is that I play on the SWG emulators, the place the sport isn’t solely alive however thriving on a number of servers, so it doesn’t actually really feel useless. However within the technical sense? It’s true. And it simply drives dwelling how brief a life SWG actually acquired in comparison with what it deserved.
It’s Friday and I’m feeling the necessity for a ballot. Star Wars Galaxies vs. Star Wars The Previous Republic – which one was higher? Would you commerce one for the opposite, or do you actually love each? To the pollmobile!
