For the glory of Helghan

Ok, I have Star Wars Galaxies, and I've heard that some games have unofficial servers that are run by just fans and other people, that you don't need a subscription to pay for and you just need the game. Firstly, I wanted to know if anyone knows if SWG has any Unofficial Free servers like this. Secondly, I wanted to know what MMORPG's do have Unofficial servers like so. Info would be much appreciated, thanks!

Heh...do you know that those "Unoffical" server for illigal? But to answer your question no...SWG doesn't have any out. They have one being made but they wen't underground becasue a smart person brought it to the attention of SOE. :P I do not know any full list but I DO know WoW has some morons that made a hacked or what you call "unoffical" server setup program.

WoW's "unofficial servers" are all shithouse because they're just emulators which have to have quests and mobs rewritten as separate databases to download just to exist. Don't even bother with them. I would imagine many other MMORPGs are the same. The only reason I tried them was because I didn't buy the game in the first place.
WC3 unofficial servers are good because it means I can play with my australian brethren easily.
Likewise, fingolfin is right, they are illegal, and I think many threads have been closed in the WoW forums for being about this.
Either way, it's more fun to go without entirely or pay the subscription fee to have the game they way it's meant to be played.
