Actually, there were tons of people on Starsider until a week after they announced closing. It went downhill fast after that. Not as many people wanted to keep investing in characters they were never going to see again.

LOL, as if sites like that actually know specifics. Yeah, the server was busy all hours of the day. There was at least one more US server that had a heavy population as well. I wouldn't know about the euro servers though.

Here is how much they know swtor 1.5 million subs L-O- freaking-L

Aside from all the shiney things in this game which come with lag, there isn't much I'd say I like in it better than SWG. I opted out though when they put in the stupid patch that destroyed the game.

When links are posted on the internet, they must be factual. Similar to Wiki, which is omniscient.

To answer the question, yes, there would be enough subscriptions to support a number of devs. The two incarnations in the works and the number of players which are playing the current emulator show that it would be supported.

True, in the end I think thats what really the former players want.

Hmm, smell the irony?

Either way, it goes to show SWTOR made more subscribers than SWG ever achieved in its entire life time.
