Stupid people were meant to have vehicles and space combat from day 1, but they are slack and useless. This your first MMORPG Hardware?

Well I never said people shouldn't play it because I'm not happy about something. All I said was that they are lazy and useless for not putting in things they promised would be there from day 1 since they started plugging the game in the news. All I see is a half finished product handed up to us and that doesn't please me. So I plan to look at it after they bring out what they promised. Its like playing TRIBES without vehicles. Why bother when theres UT or Quake?

Actually, creature mounts, player cities, and land vehicles where meant to be there from day one. Of course for the sake of getting the game out on time and relatively bug free, which I must say SWG was one of the best title launches I've seen and the updates have nothing but gotten better and better, they droped them. Of course, those features that where dropped will be free, but space combat was ALWAYS meant to be the first expansion pack for the game, in fact the day the SWG site when up they already had the teaser site up for the first expansion which, guess what, is tentivtively dubbed, SWG: Space Expansion.

Maybe so. But when the game was announced they promised space combat from day one. If you dont know this then you probably started following the game long after when it was announced that vehicles and space combat weren't going to be there at launch. Why announce it if you never planned on doing it? IT was planned. They cut back.

Ok, yes from the beginning it was planned that there would be vehicles and space combat in SWG, BUT when the offical announcement of a almost solidified date for SWG would be out it was said, at E3 that Space vehicles and combat would be added in as the first expansion pack to SWG where as land vehicles would be in the inital release... if you'll remember land vehicles got dropped pretty close to release time and it was said that they, along with the Dark Jedi, creature mounts, and player cities would be added to the game later on for free, you wouldn't have to pay for them like you will have to to be able to fly in space and dog fight. I am sure of this, ban me if you like, but you will be sued for wrongful banning.

Eh? Why would I ban you for that. I rarely ban. Banned..hmm..1 person in my entire time here! Though it should be a few more if you count NiN and some others.

Anyway, I'm not saying it wasn't announced later for the expansion packs. Mainly that we were told certain things would be there, we looked forward to the game, then they tell us they wont be there because they wont be able to complete them on time, then we got angry and snubbed them till they put in what they promised. Thats really all I'm saying. Not that the game is bad or not. We're just annoyed at the developers who mouth off too much and so plan to look at the game when they put in the stuff they promised. Other companies delay the launch of their game if they dont have what they said in it. To me it just seems they were less interested in the fans. If you get what I'm saying.. Other then that I'm sure its fun.

have a garlic sandwich alucard....lol....

it actually sounds like you dont like the game...but ..if ou actually played you would realize how much there is to do besides mounts player cities and what not....tons to do...that stuff actually seems to have been implimented at the right time...seem really progressive....if they keep it up like this ..you will always have something new and interesting to tinker with..they just added in a new quest for armorsmiths which gives you a new armor to create....progression my friend..if they added in all the armors from jump...it would be kinda cluttered..a few every month makes for tons of possibilitys.....the game is shaping up really nicely

hehe.. you still misunderstand me. I was looking forward to the game when they announced it ages ago but its a little annoying to look forward to something and then get half of what they said they'd give. I'm sure the game is great. I hope I get the time to play it. But aside from a little gameplay things here and there, its not a huge difference in MMORPGs. The vehicles and space battles were what was going to make it for me since thats the new juicy stuff the other games dont have. Untill they put them in I dont plan to play it. Just wondering what it was that kept them from bringing these things out at the beginning. Why were they so far behind.

I get what your saying Alucard and I agree to some extent, but personally, I wouldn't want to have to wait to play SWG because the promised very vast space exspansion wasn't ready and doesn't look like it will be ready until a year after the main bulk of the game (ground based) was just sitting there ready to be released.

Plus it's not like anybody would of been able to buy a X-Wing or Tie Figther from the get go... so I'm not that upset. I am a little peaved though that I've had to stop playing the game due to school and the fact that I'm dead set on getting a force active slot so I can become a dark jedi and kill other jedi and those stupid upstart bounty hunters... DIE YOU FOOLS DIE!!! :kill: :???: opps, did I go off again, time to get the medications out!!!

Nope, no dead jedi, there was a interview on IGN with one of the developers of SWG that said theres this whole like "awareness system" where jedi are only as famous as they show themselves to be, meaning, if people don't see them using the force or a lightsaber then that jedi doesn't have any real worries. It's kinda a Jedi in hidding sort of deal so it's not like you can just be a bounty hunter and go after that reward, that Jedi has to let themselves be known before you can go on the hunt.

The minute they there will be a list on the net with the names of the jedis. Then the bounty hunters will put their names in their watch for list and track them down. Kinda cheesy really. They can't afford to show themselves at all. But then again they'll most likely give themselves away on a board or something.
