The Nostalgia Is Strong In This One (SWG/Station?)
I'm not much of a multiplayer player. In fact, except for in-person Mario Kart, and a bit of Madden, I've never really played multi-player. To be honest, I'm not really sure why: maybe other people break the illusion? I never found the right crowd? That's a question for another day (which I'm interested in the answer to).
Back in '03, I decided to give SWG a try, but I was never really able to get into it, for a number of reasons. I had a crappy comp at the time, and a 2003 laptop ain't rendering anything at the power that that MMO needed. I was also in college, and was busy with... college things that really didn't let me spend a lot of time MMOing (no wi-fi back then, so it wasn't like I could grind at the library). Still, I thought it was cool, especially with all the sandboxy stuff, and I wanted to give it a try when I got a chance...
... which never really came. Occasionally, I'd try an MMO: WoW never caught me, I bought a trial of STO and tried it... and found it really lifeless. Maybe MMO's aren't thing, but when I saw that SW:G was shutting down, I figured I'd give it a try, just to see what that was like... maybe I needed something sandbox-y? Maybe I just need something Star Warsy? Maybe I can't do grinding? Sadly, I didn't realize there was a hardcutoff, and my disc was useless.
So, my question is, does anyone have a SWG/Station account I can poke around with? I won't break anything, and I can comp you for the time. Also, if this violated ToS, I can delete this message (don't want to start trouble). Anyways, thanks in advance!
