First Jedi spawned in SWG!

Quote:
Talk about a short honeymoon. Over the weekend, players of Star Wars Galaxies, the film-inspired massive-multiplayer online role-playing game, learned that two players had achieved Jedi Initiate status. The pair were the first in the game's four-and-a-half month history to do so.

Today, the MMORPG site Allakhazam's Magical Realm is reporting that a massive bounty--150,000 credits--is being offered for the newly hatched Jedi's heads. As of press time, they had not been killed.

Reaction in the Galaxies community has been mixed. Some see the bounties as a cynical move by Sony Online Entertainment to keep the Jedi population down, others praise it as being true to the spirit of the SW films. Unsurprisingly, the most common reaction has been bloodthirsty enthusiasm by players with bounty-hunter characters, who have posted comments like "It's safari time!" on SWG forums.
gyahaha. Sucked in Jedi n00bs!

I have been a bit confused as to the perks of being a jedi, does it just make you a higher level than everyone around you?

Star Wars Galaxies looked really coo, but from what I've seen I'll stick with Dark Age Of Camelot.

Horizons and Dragon Empires or whatever its called both look pretty cool though, as does WoW

Apparently it unlocks your force sentitive slots, meaning you get to work on special Jedi powers (lightning, chick, push, whatever) as well as allowing you to design your own Lightsabers. Being what they are , Im guessing Lightsabers will be the uberest of uber weapons in the game.

And since MMORPGs are about tbeing the uberest of the uber, well, I guess thats why people are jealous. And thats why I avoid MMORPGs.

I hope they die soon. Last thing I wanna hear about is people getting hacked up by Jedis screaming "I jus PAWN3D JOO NOOOB!"

...well...it's better than Lucas' Episode 1 script...but I still won't settle for it.

Not sad if its taken from a bounty hunters perspective. Sad coming from someone who takes Jedi's a little too seriously and thinks they should be undefeatable gods in the universe.

Dont worry about Horizons if I were you. The game is SO old that it already looks dated. Stick with Lineage 2 or EQ 2 over that.

hehe.. You've missed the entire point of what an mmorpg is. If all it was was about clicking someone and pressing attack then noone would play it.

A worthy excuse! No is the wrong time to start up an mmorpg. Wait another 2-3 months after all the good games come out and theres that pause till july. First half of the year is best time to play.

actually that's what i was thinking, and by then they should have added a lot of new features like those creature mounts and more jedi's should be around.
