Sony Online Entertainment: Death wish 2

September 16th, 2009

Today I got an e-mail from SOE (Sony Online Entertainment), makers of Everquest and Star Wars Galaxies MMO. It was an e-mail concerning my account for Star Wars Galaxies. Here’s a part of the e-mail:

Due to the overwhelming success of the recent Free Character Transfer Service, we want to inform you that on October 15, 2009, at 5:00 PM PT, Sony Online Entertainment (SOE) will close the following 12 Star Wars Galaxies servers:
• Corbantis
• Europe-Infinity
• Intrepid
• Kauri
• Kettemoor
• Lowca
• Naritus
• Scylla
• Tarquinas
• Tempest
• Valcyn
• Wanderhome

It’s ridiculous. SOE is again making a fool of themselves here. How blind can you be. How naïve can you be. How arrogant can you be to think that the players don’t know what’s happening here. The game is just empty, people are leaving and servers are getting underpopulated. That’s why servers are merging. But to market it as a success is really arrogant I think.
Also if you don’t do this transfer thing (which btw is a very tricky process, where you probably have to have an active account, etc) your account will be deleted. So if you don’t spend money to safe your char, then you will lose it. Are they creating another death wish again, NGE anybody!?!!??!

(NGE were dramatic changes to the existing game, which in turn had the effect that lots and lots of players went to other places (games).
