I wish swtor had swg's space combat, but this time it has to be so that friendly space ships can dock with each other, and u should then be able to run across both space ships. Also, u need to be able to have friendly duels onboard spaceships, like swg.

But yeah just the huge battles that went on in space or atmospheric flight, especially the battles on the last day were insane in SWG.

Nonsensicles, imma let you finish, but Combat Upgrade was the biggest, most devastating event to happen to the world of Pokemon.

I have read quite a few posts on this topic and I feel like adding my 2 cents worth. I also miss everything that came with the old game expansion... (Jump to LightSpeed). The PVE, PVP, Mining and being able to customize your ships yes I said ships (being more than 1). I also enjoyed not having my flight skill affect my character level and vice versa. In SWTOR they gave us amazing stories, companions to help us when we want to solo play, the ability to group easily with others when we want to but I do feel they failed on the space race at least up to this point. They gave us an escape pod on our ship but made no use for it I cant help believing that it's there for something that may not be out yet but is in the works for coming out. What I would like to see is exactly what SWG gave us seperate my pilot ranking and character level even if its just something that I change in my preferences, open space exploration and flight even if the graphics for it is less amazing than they are used to giving... because the space missions that they have now really does have some amazing scenery and is probably very difficult to maintain on a neverending open space area. I also think that PVP space missions would be something else, I can imagine a FP style introduction to a PVP event where space dominance is actually the goal. Personally I am a Bioware fan and enjoy their stories and games, I can understand that this is their first MMO and that therer is room for error. I think most of all what BW really needs to learn is that gamers especially those that play MMO's are very demanding and dedicated to those games that have and give them what they want. I think that Bio begins to really understand this we will get the things we really want like off the rollercoaster.

I never could master atmospheric flight. I kept crashing: over, and over, and over again.

But, it was so fricking cool to be in Cnet, call your POB and fly directly into the Corellian System.

Wait for it...and you only had one loading screen! Unlike TOR's obnoxiously plentiful screens.

JTL why did I have to see this thread. First day it was out I ran to the flight trainer in Bestine and signed up for the "Storm Squad". Little did I know what I was in for. I had just signed up for the hardest space line in the game. Any Stormers here remember the 2hr. escort missions where you got pounded? I remember when you had to kill the corvette in Kessel when it was still a PvP zone. ( you were auto declared when you went there like deep space) How about the year long re-e projects or the freelancers that camped the deep space spawn point and hit EP3 as you spawned . Ahh... JTL, re-eing that special reactor so you could run RO4, EO4 and WO4. The Jedi ship craze when you could have a 1v1 that lasted so long you would get a tell "lets call this a draw". The space community banned the jedi ship from pvp and we all stuck to it. We had large space events. Deep space where you could become a faction hero or a celebrated enemy. I remember talking a fresh enemy player back to DS by telling him I would unload my guns come back and get some practice. That was the pilot community in JTL.
We had fun /;wipesEyes.

Attacking around the Imperial generator on Endor was insane on my server on the last day, tons of fighters in the sky, and a crapload of Imperials and Rebels on the ground. Then my fellow Imperials had rocket launchers to shoot down player's ships haha.

SWG was a fantastic MMO, SWTOR is a good single player game.

If you want to play SWG again, check out (Star Wars) Galaxies Reborn.

Bioware is too worried about adding more raids and more gear tiers than to worry about anything sandbox-ish.

it will be their downfall.
