Classic SWG: And So It Ends...

The beta for Star Wars Galaxies ended much like many of the beta sessions ended: "Connection to SWG Lost".

Here we see Vincer, Cyra (who provided the screencap) and Ooyna standing outside Coronet, Corellia. We seemed to have finished off that Meatlump easily enough (Does he have a name? Interesting!), but it was the Bria server that finished us off once and for all.

It was a bittersweet ending, but we had made plans to meet up on Launch Day on the Starsider Galaxy. Beta was more fun then should have been allowed for free, but we did our fair share of work. Bug were reported often and discussions on the beta forums were focused, mature and productive.

Ah, the good old days. We'll always have our memories. In particular I remember the general outcry that told SOE "Don't launch! It's not ready!" Was it because we wanted to keep playing for free? Or was it because... well.. the game wasn't ready?

You decide.
