SWG Thought of the Day: Here We Go Again

Just when you forgot what it felt like to complain about the loot cards in the Star Wars Galaxies Trading Card Game, the second expansion for this money grab has been announced. While technically called "Galactic Hunters" it offers a new mount that looks more like something from World of Warcraft.

For your viewing pleasure, I present to you... The Swift Kick in the Face of Armorsmiths, Beast Masters and those Who Love Star Wars...

Ferocious, no? These herbivorous creatures now look ready to eat you! Imagine, if you will, how many night elves shall fall to their knees, trembling in fear when this armored beast storms their way wearing the Spiked Slippers of Doom!

Seriously, SOE: Have you even seen Star Wars?

As this is the first released image of the new loot, it's obviously the one that SOE is the most proud of. That does not bode well for what will follow.

So here we go again: injecting new content into the game that should be made by crafters... and now beast masters as well. All the while, the crafting community is largely forgotten (though a big thumbs up is due for the new schematics that structures crafters shall receive for the player city updates!).

Like the comfort of an old pair of shoes, it's now time to put on our "angry" and go rage against SOE for yet again choosing the money grab rather then developing the game that we signed up to play.

"How we doin'?"

"Same as always."

"That bad, huh?"
