Sept. 15, 2011

  • SWG MMO and Trading Card Game no longer available for sale or subscription
  • No new or reactivated accounts accepted after this date

It'd suck if they didn't try and make one till December 16th and get hosed.

It might be worth notifying one of them directly. I'm sure they probably do know, but if they don't this could help.

I'm sure they already have an account. At least 1 of the people in the office would. And even if not I'm sure somebody here would gladly give them their account. 
 
By the way, does anybody know if the game will be f2p for the last day?

Man it would be a bummer if they couldn't be there. I'm sure they could always reach out to the Galaxies community and borrow someone's account if worst comes to worst.

I was just about to say this. Sounds like they're already good to go.

Personally, I think it would only minimally effect the coverage if they didn't have an account.  How great would it be if they had to watch somebody else's livestream and comment on it?  Or if they had to talk about what they imagined was going on?   Is what actually happens in SW:G really that great?  No, or it wouldn't be shutting down.

I literally just reactivated my account.

Glad I caught this in time!

Is it going free to play? Or s it paid till the end?

Sucks that we won't get to see the wacky character creation phase.

Also, it's going to suck when the game has an anticlimactic ending.

@The_Laughing_Man: after today if you have an active account you play it free till the end, but you cant make a account after today.

I'm guessing this event is going to be subscriber only?

#17 Posted by ProfessorEss (7378 posts) -

I just assumed Jeff would already have two or three life-time subscriptions.

Probably not. They covered the end of the Matrix Online, and the Star Trek Online Beta, so I don't see why this would be subscriber only content.
