damned NGE killed that game =/ Bloodfin was listed as a "medium load" server tonight, I went out hunting newb rebel jedi and couldnt find anyone at all, started doing /who in every zone. 118 total on the server, not counting the 40 or so respec jedi farming fleas on Musta.
Yep, I reactivated to check out the NGE, and was very disappointed to see everyone leaving. Starsider board is just filled with goodbye posts.
It's funny. I've always wanted Jedi, but didn't want to work for it with repetitive grinding. I never had time for that which others seemed to have had.
The first day of NGE, I had a couple of hours of fun being a Jedi. And then something hit me. SOE made this change to drag people in who want to play Jedi. I sort of feel like I killed SWG now
It's like when Vader realized he killed Padme:
You did it.
You killed her.
You killed her because, finally, when you could have saved her, when you could have gone away with her, when you could have been thinking about her, you were thinking about yourself...
It is in this blazing moment that you finally understand the trap of the dark side, the final cruelty of the Sith--
Because now your self is all you will ever have.
And you rage and scream and reach through the Force to crush the shadow who has destroyed you, but you are so far less than you were, you are more than half machine, you are like a painter gone blind, a composer gone deaf, you can remember where the power was but the power you can touch is only a memory, and so with all your world-detroying fury it is only droids that you implode, and equipment, and the table on which you were strapped shatters, and in the end, you cannot touch the shadow.
In the end, you do not even want to.
In the end, the shadow is all you have left.
Because the shadow understands you, the shadow forgives you, the shadow gathers you unto itself--
And within your furnace heart, you burn in your own flame.
This is how it feels to be Anakin Skywalker.
BobZombie would like to say: "On behalf of limbless creatures everywhere (of which I have often been), I express my deepest sympathies. It is in those moments when the last limb flies from your torso that you realize just how precious that body part was. And like a game thats been torn apart by the addition of a cutting edge expansion and soon sees its death coming, the body screams out as well in futility at the pathetic separation of limb from body inevitably to come, despite its feeble attempts to pump a few last squirts of blood through the limb's veins."
