We will see if that happens but it makes no sense to pull an article and re-release it the next day. The damage is already done.

The most cited reason? It didn't feel like Star Wars.
So True. I liked the game but your assessment is spot on.

You mean to say SWG was horrible of a game without any substance or content to it, unfortunately NGE failed to improve on that I take it. What a lackluster of a title that was.

It's probably just so BioWare can still change it... but to be honest, I expected the 15th already as the date we see 1.5 and F2P go life, so no real surprise here.

The 15th makes sense, as that will be the final day on the current month for subscribers that have been with the game since release on Dec. 20.

Its obvious that what killed SWG was the patch date...

So if the f2p release is scheduled for next week... do you think that there is enough time for Bioware to start a marketing campaign and create a new hype??

IMO they should have started the marketing 2 weeks prior to the launch not 7-5 days :/

Yep, killed it only 6 short years later.

Anyone who played that game that wasn't a complete moron knew NGE killed that game.

Then SOE took advantage of SWG's remaining population and made TCG which had hundreds of rare items that collectors would easily spend real life money to obtain them.
