I’m playing Star Wars: Galaxies for 687 days now (used /getvet when writing this article). I know I’m not one of the “oldest” members, I joined after the Combat Upgrade, but I think I’m allowed to express my opinions about the past and current developments of the game.
When I bought the game about 2 years ago I did it because friends of mine were playing it and one of the posted a link to some Star Wars: Galaxies videos which impressed and convinced me. Originally I told myself I would buy that game only if I finished my exams successfully, but unfortunately I failed and I had to do the exams again, successfully. Anyway, although I failed my exams I bought the game because I couldn’t wait any longer. I don’t regret it. I still remember the first time I logged in, joined the Scylla server and created my character Coruin Halcyon.
