Whenever an MMO is dismantled, there is a major outcry from the game’s fans. Star Wars Galaxies is no exception, and fans of the long-running MMO are trying their best to save it from a December shut-down.
Several groups have started petitions to try and convince SOE to give a free-to-play model a try instead of shutting it down, but SOE has reacted pretty harshly to such attempts.
Any mentioned of saving the game has caused forum topics on the game’s site to be deleted.
According to reports, some fans are seeking legal action, hoping that they can avoid a shutdown through some legal loophole.
