Greetings ProjectSWG community,
As you all may know, a new NGE server has risen within the SWG community. SWG Reborn has a nearly completed server which has been established using the official, illegally obtained, source code. Here’s what this means in regards to the future of ProjectSWG and the SWG scene as a whole:
As the owners of the Reborn server have stated
, their server is using the official, leaked, SOE source code. For us, and them, to use the code means that there may be legal action, which is one of the many reasons why we are continuing development on our own server. In addition, SWGEmu has stated that they won’t use any of Sony’s code due to its legality. Emulators take a very long time to develop, and we completely understand the frustration. There is a significant challenge in emulating an entire game, and creating a server that skips all of the challenges is not a new idea to the community.
Reborn has the full Star Wars Galaxies game and experience. We understand that in the end, everyone wants to play the game again. We have always been here to make a server the best that we can for each and every one of you. We care about the SWG community and we want a game that everyone can play and enjoy in the long run.
The future of ProjectSWG looks bright! We understand that many community members are angry at us because of the amount of time that it has taken to work on this server, however, we also hope you all also remember how things like this take time. We have gone through many hardships, and now we have a very solid and trustworthy team that has been working extremely hard. The result is an incredibly stable server that every one of us are proud of. We understand it’s taken awhile but we hope that you stick with us, as well as the other great legal emulators, for the long run, because that’s what we’re here for. YOU are what matters to us. We want to bring back SWG the right way, no shortcuts.
Finally, we want to say we are sorry for all the time that has been taken on this. As you know, people come and go and real life gets in the way far too often. You all have been there for us and given us SO MUCH of your time and energy. It’s time we start giving back and reaching the expectations that you all have for us. We will bring back the game, even if it takes us years. We want our hardwork and dedication to be an outward display of our ethics here at ProjectSWG. We want to bring this back for you all, so as we continue this adventure, we hope you’ll stick around with us for the long haul. And as always, long live SWG!
The ProjectSWG Staff
