SWG Legends was an unofficial server for Star Wars Galaxies Online Game. In December of 2021, the game’s developers announced that they would be adding Bespin apartments to the new update and it was revealed that over 15K players had joined since then. It is unknown whether SWL will continue on as a standalone project or if this growth will make them reconsider their plans for other updates in 2022.,
SWG Legends, a rogue server for the “star wars galaxies” game, has added 15K new players in 2021. The plan is to release Bespin apartments early 2022.
So, here’s something I’ve never seen before from an MMO developer: SWG Legends, a player-led Star Wars Galaxies rogue server, has now published player statistics for every single event it held during the year, complete with graphs so you can see what people wanted to attend and what they didn’t. What are the most important events? The anniversary of the original SWG’s sunset, Halloween’s haunted labyrinth, the Wampa Rampage events, and two summer events: the Cloud City truce and the second half of Execute Order 66. I have a feeling we’ll be seeing more of these sorts of events (and their corresponding prizes) in the future.
There are also statistics on new account registrations, which totaled over 15,000 new players over the course of the year (January was by far the most popular month, followed by May, which saw the birth of the Bespin expansion). And they’ve provided a detailed financial analysis for the full year; although this is a rogue server, it still costs money to operate, close to $17,000 every year.
The player team also announced that it will take steps to improve transparency surrounding the player-elected senate, its attendance, resolutions, and voting, as well as staff decisions regarding those resolutions and the appointment of a new liaison between staff and senators, in the end-of-year report.
In terms of the game, the team concedes that the Bespin apartments won’t be ready by the end of 2021, but are aiming for a “very early 2022 release.” The developers also tease Felucia, Geonosis, and Taanab; reject a concept for in-game mail attachments; emphasize that previous accounts and names will not be disabled; hint at more Ithorians wearing wearables; and reject calls to favor solo content.
The next report will be released in March.
