Star Wars Galaxies Chapt. 8: New Gunships

ch8ships-hdr.jpg

The next chapter of Lucas Arts and Sony Online Entertainment’s Star Wars Galaxies MMO will be bringing players new ships. Whether you’re part of the Rebel Alliance, The Empire, or neutral; chapter 8 has a gunship to meet your particular needs.

The Blacksun AEG-77 Vigo is a transport with enough weaponry to take care of itself. Named after Black Sun’s lieutenants, the Vigo, this vessel boasts enough firepower to be elevated to the status of “gunship” while still retaining enough space for passengers and items.

The new Imperial Assault Gunship is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. It’s often mistaken for a Lambda class shuttle until it’s too late. This combat ready vessel delivers aggressive firepower.

The Incom X4 gunship is a favorite of the Rebel Alliance. It’s a great multi-purpose ship with lightspeed, storage, passenger room and enough firepower for those unexpected Imperial confrontations.

Get layouts and the full ordnance list for each of these new gunships at Station: Star Wars Galaxies.

Its not what I have forseen. Amazing changes will be occurring soon to SWG. This maybe in response to the New Bioware/LucasArts partnership which is rumored to be for the new Knights of the Old Republic MMO. Soon new trade skills and professions will appear which will include the return of the e trade as manufactured by the new “chemist” trade skill. One new idea to replace the unsightly harvesters with an player only instance manufacturing devices. Soon the game may take on a look and feel that has not occurred in years and I must say that I am intrigued .

If these changes do occur then I would have to reconsider my current position but if I do decide to return I would have to transfer servers . Kauri is dead save for the French speakers. It was mention that Bloodfin was the server of transfer choice but I can not rule out Bria , Chilastra or the home of my hero , Flurry . Muahahaha, that would be a whoot. But I am putting the cart before the horse. Changes first , then the return of the clown prince of MMO to SWG.

Aye only after chapter 8 becomes live on the servers will I believe it to happen. Too much carrot on the stick by SWG for me to believe any SOE word of mouth. Much like SWG Fanfests and concepts demonstrated there. Much like the ToOW and the secret agenda of revamping the game the day after everyone started getting charged for that expansion.

My policy now is to maybe try playing every chapter one 1 account. Though chapter 7 I have not yet subbed to play yet. Though space is something that I have always liked in SWG and thought about working on my Avatar pilot skills. I’ll wait till Chapter 8. Most likely pilots will get nerfed or some such thing and a person would have to start over. Why waste time playing a game if SOE is gonna wipe away the effort put into playing the game?

I have better things to do with my time than play any SOE game. Its been demonstrated quite clearly in the past I’m not a wanted customer since I’m over 21 and not part of their new target demographic. Guess having played the PreCu with the wide array of templates and having my own adventure in a Star Wars Universe has eliminated my enjoyment of limited mindless cloned templates to chose from. SWG still does not have animations working after two years,something that was working 4 years ago.

I’ve had something I’ve loved taken away and broken and given back. How can one not forever mourn and feel resentment. Since I can’t seem to punish SOE the child for this I stopped buying Sony products to send a message to the parent.

I have pld swg for sometime now and playing chapter 7 is starting to feel like the good old days.. spec with new village in dathmir back up… Attachments to weapons and so many buffs and stat clothing out there.. Traders and dancers are back doing bits for everyone.. and community is starting to pick up.. Lets hope stay on some more High end content .. + new collections thing and mediatation is back which was always good.. Oooh collection system is cool just go around collecting so many things and get one big main thing like new skills.. Though most things are rare to find.. inc holo’s

Jim

On November 24, 2007 at 1:11 am

Yeh and we all would like better animations , but can use mods though I hear the mods dont work to well anymore. Hopefully swg will use some there own but bettter ones.. :)

OMG , I can not believe that SOE has brainwashed you bunch of toadstool morons that this game is even half way good compared to the Pre-CU! Come out of your mothers basement and demand better before it’s too late!

Bob

On December 4, 2007 at 7:55 am

Pre-CU! Gone stop whining about the sad old days GRANDPA’S

The chapters are pointing the game in the right direction and so looking forward to chapter 8.

If you keep whining about the game, stop playing it and stop looking it up on the forums…..you cant you say …whys that ? oh you really like the game, you just cant stop moaning cause your a sad old GRANDPA…. lol

vislo

On December 5, 2007 at 5:20 pm

:mrgreen: lol bob /agree swg is going in right direction! yay swg!

You Sheep of SOE , your days are numbered . Bioware’s new SW MMO premiering in 2009 will see mine and over 200k players return . Enjoy your kiddie piss pool NGE until then.

bob

On December 6, 2007 at 9:09 am

Jestor Jestor Jestor heres a thought for you.

Lucas Arts owns the licence to Star Wars and as long as they hold the reins to any game company making a game with there licence then disaster are going to happen..(YES EVEN BIOWARE COULD FALL FATE TO THE SAME THING THAT HAPPEND TO SOE). So take that thong trapped in your butt cheek, pull it out and appreciate the hard work and tons of red tape Soe have to go through just to get Lucas Arts to agree to the next chapters.

Place your anger at Lucas Arts and ask them to let Soe or even Bioware to have free rein on the game…..

Jestor Rodo

On December 6, 2007 at 10:56 am

Yes , My poor diluted Ass monkey LucasArts own the license to Star Wars. And only time will tell what will occur with their partnership with Bioware.

But as for placing my anger, it is with the moronic Asshats of SOE’s CSR department that banned me for an alleged forum misuse then only allowed to return to the baby piss pool you are all to happy to wade in better know as the NGE. SO(e) take that Big Ball of red tape and shove it up your own ass. You brainwashed Nimrod of MMO mediocrity that you are.

bob

On December 6, 2007 at 12:08 pm

So what your really angry at is that you was stupid enough to get band in game and on the forums. and by the attituded of you i can see why, and thats why swg is a better game without you in it. :mrgreen:

bob

On December 6, 2007 at 12:14 pm

Back to Chapter 8 Ive only seen 3 new ships but herd theres supposed to be 6, any idea on what they will be ?

Jestor Rodo

On December 6, 2007 at 2:30 pm

Oh ,I am no longer angry , in fact I am highly amused :lol: . And don’t bait me into coming back saying that the game is better without me. On the whole I would rather be in the majority of over 220k that do not play then be the 85k minority that have accepted the MMO porking of the NGE.

bob

On December 6, 2007 at 5:18 pm

Like i said b4 on my last warning Lucas Arts…

Let the people that enjoy this game get on with what they like and go find a forum where people will listen to what you got to say….

heres somewhere for you

vislo

On December 7, 2007 at 4:15 pm

:???: they were suppose to put new species in swg in chp 7? i never heard or knew that

Lynx

On December 8, 2007 at 8:26 am

Yeah ive checked back over there comments and chapter 7 was supposed to have new species to choose from + alot of other stuff that never made it to chapter 7, makes me wonder if they held it back for chapter 8 as thats supposed to be released b4 christmas.

I think this looks like a nice chapter.. too bad I don’t pilot that much. Oh and on the Pre-Cu discussion.. i played SWG way before Pre-Cu and I loved. Yes I admit that that screwed everything up.. but does it matter? As long as I still HAVE swg to play.. either CU or Pre-CU…. I’m happy. And hopefully SOE will have some sense knocked into thier skulls and change everything back to Pre-Cu. That would ge ungodly. :mrgreen:

bob

On December 9, 2007 at 3:12 pm

/agree Bobbydabomb :razz:

“SOE will have some sense knocked into thier skulls and change everything back to Pre-Cu. That would ge ungodly”

Its the only way I would play. No reward (My $$$) til then.

bob

On December 9, 2007 at 8:44 pm

If Soe would have you back…i mean you did sya you was banned lol

Zaess

On December 10, 2007 at 11:30 am

Lucas Arts dont thnk SWG is going good anymore and are thinking about shutting it down, thats why Lucas Arts are in talk with Bioware about New SW MMO. Everyone no’s NGE ruined SWG but Pre-CU aint coming back, Never will. I liked pre-NGE but have to say the combat is soooo more like SW with the FPS style. SWG is great game still but Nerds that cant get over a simple change leave SWG with hardly any ppl playing it. Grow Up rofl, its a game not yur life.

Lynx

On December 10, 2007 at 5:19 pm

That rumor was squash like 8 months ago swg is not going anywhere at least not for the next 2 years, As for Bioware only they know what they and lucas arts are planning, or have you got the abilty to see the future ? if so whats the lottery results :mrgreen:

Lynx

On December 10, 2007 at 5:22 pm

Oh yeah and as for noone playing it anymore depends on what server you play on, there are 6 servers that have heavy traffic just like the good old days, try some other servers maybe your on a lame one. :twisted:

bob

On December 10, 2007 at 5:38 pm

I was on intrepid which was empty, moved over to a europe server and never seen it so busy. no matter where u are there is always someone playing near :lol:
