    I think the greatest memory of SWG I have are those that I will never lose, those of the friendships I made. I remember back during my first week when I met some random guy in one of the Legacy bunkers outside of Eisley. He led me to my first guild where I made some friendships that I still have almost 10 years later, and some I unfortunately don't. Luckily that lead me to another guild where I made some of my greatest friendships The funny/awesome thing is I was 12 when I started playing and some of these friends have not only been great friends to me as I went from middle school into college but also have been there for me during some of the toughest times in my life.

    Long live SWG and the friendships we forge through it!

    I have been a Star Wars fanatic all my life. Over 15 years ago learning that an MMORPG experience in the Star Wars universe was going to be a thing I was none other than ecstatic. To be able to live my own adventure in worlds created around my childhood obsession was none other than bliss.

    SWG launched on my birthday that year nearly 15 years ago. After rushing to the retailer to pick up my limited edition copy (& quite the snailing install for my PC at the time) I remember very vividly spending the ENTIRE day attempting over & over again to create an account so I could merely log in, however the login server was so horribly flooded it seemed like it was not going to be possible. Then late in evening I was IN, able to make a character, play the short tutorial, & begin my adventure down on Tatooine within the Chilastra Galaxy! The excitement was absolute & the feeling very intensely real for a few very short moments as the server was being brought down for maintenance. /sigh

    It was all worth it & remains a game that no other has been able to replace or live up to.

    Thank you, SWG Legends for keeping this great experience something we can continue to enjoy.

    I started playing right after the NGE dropped, around 2006. Having never payed for a subscription-based game before, I created countless trial accounts to experience the game as much as I could as a kid with no money.

    Finally, I discovered that trial accounts could leave Tansarri (I previously assumed they couldn’t.) Stepping foot on Tatooine for the first time, and discovering just how enormous the galaxy is, was an event I will never forget.

    I played SWG through much of my formative years growing up. In the eight years that I played, I remember spending accumulative days decorating houses, planning parties on my server of Chilastra, giving away festive costume packs for in-game events like the Galactic Moon Festival or having an entertainer sing merry Star Wars-ified songs on Life Day... I just loved the atmosphere of SWG. It really is the game to play if you just want to exist in the Star Wars universe.

    Indeed, the first thing I did upon making my account and setting foot in Coronet was using a bazaar terminal and using my starting credits to buy myself a hat, went into the cantina and listened to the first song I ever heard in Galaxies-- Virtuoso.

    I mingled with a Mandalorian RP guild for a time, spent hours just driving around multiple planets looking for something interesting in the terrain, had a house win one of the Galactic Homeshows, and on the final day of the server, I learned that the city I had made on Tatooine known as Crabby Town had become a refuge for a guild from another server. It was that moment that made me feel like I was a part of something larger than a guild, game, or server. It was a community. Even during the final months as it appeared that not more than a dozen other players were on, it was still "my community." Despite there being a Mos Eisley on every server, this one felt like "my Mos Eisley," I knew people's names over time and I interacted with many of them. Some of them I became good friends with, some I still keep in loose contact with today.

    Although I'm new to SWGLegends, I hope to one day experience the same comfort I felt in knowing that I was a part of a community in the most influential MMORPG in my life.

    One of my fondest memories was being part of a semi rp pvp movement we had on Farstar called the 84th. At a time when the rebels were quite heavy during the GCW revamp, the imps were getting outplayed and constantly overrun until the leaders of many established and respected imperial guilds put together a 'crack team' to respond to base attacks and descend upon restuss en masse. As a Bounty hunter I mainly solo pvp'd unless I was with my brother Gore, but when the call came over imp/84th chat wee downed tools from whatever we were doing and rallied round to give the imperials the backing they needed with planned, calculated and put simply the best co-ordinated pvp Farstar ever encountered during the NGE (imo).

    There was also the time that 6 of us took a heavily guarded rebel controlled base that was nearing the coveted stim F's in 6 seconds flat with spies (when you were still able to click a terminal and restealth. We got a lot of grief for that, but man was it funny.

    I met a lot of great friends on Farstar, a few I'm still in touch with today.

    I started out on Ahazi then later moved to Eclipse. I used to love going to the Fan Faires, meeting the players and devs.

    SWG,
    It was the year 2000, i was in a book store looking through Playstation Mags and under upcoming games they had listed a title called Star Wars Galaxies.

    At that stage I was trying to play anything on playstation that was Star Wars, and SWG was originally planned to be on console aswell.
    I discovered the pre launch forums shortly after and spent the next 3 years joining in and making some great friends, learning about things like IRC and sharing Star Wars knowledge,
    I missed launch day by a few days mostly due to shipping, as this was in the times before digital down loads
    But I got my copy so i was excited when it finally arrived,

    I remember early on I arrived on Corellia, not knowing anything about what to do, other than my friends were on this server.
    I walked to Daobra Gerful from Coronet, stopping to take screenies of anything and everything, along the way.
    For the first 6 months I stayed on Corellia, exploring and doing missions in and around Daobra Gerful and Bela Vistal, with the occasional stop off to Vreni Island.
    I remember running across Corellian plains on the way to Kor Vella and coming across a camp site, I can never remember the name but I sat and chatted with some random guy for hours on everything and anything as he healed up from hunting.

    For me, the people really made this game great, say what you like about the issues that plagued the game, but that never bothered me because there were some great friends made, the only regret is not making more of an effort to record or write it down out of game,

    Pre NGE i was in TGi and NWW, and when the NGE hit i was living over seas at the time and when I got back and able to play I joined a guild called DoP ( Defenders of Peace) which soon ended up renamed Force Academy on the Chilastra server, in that community I met many great people and had many great memories, long nights doing stupid things, days spent looking forward to logging in. I have spent countless hours in the game, and never regretted any of it, from being not too sure on PVP to eventually hitting General and being pretty fine with it, the heroics are still some of my fave encounters in any raid setting in any game, they were just so well suited for Star Wars!

    SWG always has a special place for me, the music, the people, the cities. There is just something about it that feels magic, and something I know Ill likely never experience in a MMO again, the only issue I regrett is not doing enough to back up my countless screen shots and records I took over the years, how I wish I had them still!

    The best memories for me were doing stuff with guidlies and friends, doing a 7 man ISD with no healer and beating it was a classic moment. Arriving on Lok the first time to hear that incredible music, countless campsite fires, guild events and guild members who i met over the years were awesome,
    The best memories for me were with Force Academy, a RP jedi group with Master/Apprentice system with some really cool people in it, it always felt like home to me, logging in and everyone saying hi, helping people do things and seeing their reactions when obtaining an item.
    RP wasnt huge on Chilastra, but we always done our thing and never really had a shortage of people wanting to join

    I am glad SWG still exists and many great people still play,

    I remember having no real interest in SWG initially. It was all ground and zero space at that time.
    What I did like was Tie Fighter. Space was the way to go!
    Then I saw the JTL expansion and my interest was peaked!

    I started sometime after the CU hit. I remember hearing a lot of complaints, but I wasn't really doing ground at the time so it didn't bother me.

    Got stuck on an escort mission in Tat space, and suddenly these guys in Heavy X's ask if I wanted some help.
    Grouped up and was amazed at the way they were handling their ships!

    After I was done, I got an invite to go hunting gunships with them in a POB.
    Hadn't even heard of those yet, but couldn't believe it when I logged into a YT-1300, the Manollium Flame!
    They started a pilot guild (Shadow Squadron) and I was an initial member.
    Logged so much time in the bottom turret of the Flame, loving every minute of it.

    Then when it came time to go for my Corvette kill.
    There were actually a few of us in the guild going for our Master Pilot test, and they called in a pilot in an Eta Actis to help..
    Can't remember the pilot's name, but I never saw flying like that my entire piloting career.
    They single-handedly took out every turret and set the Corvette up for us to get enough shots on to count the kill.
    It was awesome!

    Later in my career, I would return the favor, setting other pilots up to take down the Corvette.

    The guild was a blast and we had some great times.
    POB Conga Lines, Taking down the Star Destroyer.
    Endless pvp (with admittedly some spawn camping).

    RL kept me busy, and I was never more than a filthy casual, playing for a few months at a time and then not logging back in for a few months.
    But I was always welcomed back like I had never left.

    One thing I won't forget is the time I logged into Naboo and found myself surrounded by White Wookiees.
    The White Wookiee invasion from Bria was a sight to behold, right up until the server started to lag out.

    Since this was the first MMO I had ever played, I wasn't sure what to expect.
    I knew that in most tabletop RPGs, if your character died, they were dead.
    Permadeath.

    I had been playing a few days, grinding my way through my rifle trees, hunting low level stuff outside ME, when I got a bit more adventurous than I should have.
    Suddenly a Womp Rat that was quite a bit out of my league aggroed on me, and I couldn't kill him or outrun him.
    I remember the sickening feeling of seeing my corpse laying there, that split second before the Cloning option popped up.
    See, the initial tutorial kind of glossed over the whole cloning part. (this was before Tansarii and Trehla Keelo).
    For a split second I thought all my work was gone. It was a huge relief to know that I could resurrect Chervil and keep him going.
    But that was in the days of cloning sickness, item decay and cloning insurance.

    One thing I will say is that the way the NGE was implemented was straight up wrong (you don't sell an expansion and then 1 week after it hits release a new game mode that completely negates over half the stuff in the expansion!)
    That being said, the final version of NGE for SWG was actually a pretty good game, and had they not pissed off so many players with the way it was put into place, they might actually have been able to hold onto the license, and we would still be playing it today.
    I know it was a bit long-winded, but this game is a blast, and Disney could do themselves a favor by finding a way to resurrect it in some way.\
    Especially if they were able to implement the current timeline.

    Big thanks to all the Legends team for their hard work in keeping this game alive.
    And a big thanks to all my fellow players!
    May the Force be with us, always!

    My best memory about SWG will probably be that day.

    I was with my friend Kaall in Theed's Cantina, just talking about what to do next on TeamSpeak. At that time, he was Jedi, I was Spy. We saw a friend entering to the cantina, we then started to use the regular chat to include him to our conversation, he was Bounty Hunter.

    While conversing, Kaall and I were both facing each facing our friend. We saw then another player that we knew coming. His name was Worn Dudder.
    For sure, you know a guy like him. You are happy to see him if you have nothing to do and a lot of time to spend, but when you are busy, you just throw your hands off the keyboard and wait for him to leave, even if you have to auto-disconnect.

    Without a word, Kaall and I did the same thing:
    Him: Force Run / Cloak, leave the Cantina by the back exit.
    Me: Cloak / Burst run of Shadows, leave the Cantina by the back exit.
    We were both running as fast as we can to get away from the Cantina, when we recieved tells from our friend BH, insulting us to had abandoned him with Worn that he didn't saw coming, and we both cried from laughing on TeamSpeak while receiving insults by tells.

    Today, we still laugh when we tell that story to a newcomer in our group.
