Subject: Star Wars Galaxies Beta Update
For those that weren't accepted (*cough* me *cough*) into the Beta-test of the upcoming Star Wars Galaxies you can still keep up-to-date on happening by reading through their forums. If you'd rather skip all that, be sure to catch their weekly discussions, like the new one posted today with the newest info on the stress testing and word that the NDA (i.e. gag order) should be lifted in the sometime, near future:
Since the main purpose of the event was to stress the servers, we only had the XP terminals online for a few hours. We gave some clues to help explorers locate them. Since we didnít give free money as well and skills arenít cheap from NPC trainers, there was booming business for players to teach skills to each other. Despite a couple crashes and a problem which made some of the free XP disappear, I think most people had fun with the scavenger hunt. There were frustrations but as Iíve repeated on multiple occasions, Beta is about testing the game not about having fun. In the end, we got a lot of great profiling data to help us optimize the servers more.Released soon game will be. It buy you will. Uberness it will be.
