In less than 5 minutes servers for Star Wars: The Old Republic will go live and people will be able to create their permanent characters for the first time. This marks the end of an era. More than 3 years ago it was announced for the first time that a Star Wars MMO is in the making and that it is being made by Bioware. Ever since then I have been watching closely what is happening with this project. As time went by and more information became available I was sure that this is the next game I will devote myself to fully. I had no idea how much exactly. I made the first post about the Deceived trailer back in 2009 on a now defunct blog. June 2010 is when SWTOR Life officially went live. This means that we have been waiting for this moment for year and a half now.
In this time we managed to interview developers, visit Bioware in their HQ, report from conventions and we even managed to expand and bring you a fully functional SWTOR Database. There are two things I am proud of the most. One is the SWTOR Life crew. These are the people that decided to be a part of this site for no benefit at all except participating actively in the SWTOR community. I thank you so very much and love you with all my heart. This site would be a speck of dust in the desert if it wasn’t for you. Thank you Grant, Mick, Michael, Dalqak, Joshua, Rosie, Hawk and Morgaine. I would also like to thank James aka BorukBH that is not part of the staff anymore but contributed a great deal when he was. Thank you for being as awesome as you are!
I would also like to thank Derek aka SWTORCrafter for taking the plunge and deciding to partner up with me in this crazy endeavor.
With all of these people the future just looks brighter.
And the future holds lots and lots of playing Star Wars: The Old Republic. We will try and continue to bring high quality coverage of the game. Together with our Database we will be a complete source for all your SWTOR needs.
The second most important thing are you, our visitors. There have been more than half a million people that visited SWTOR Life while we all waited for the game. I thank each and every one of you and I hope you’ll stick around because the best is yet to come.
Now, start pressing that F5 key to see if the email for Early access has arrived. While you wait feel free to watch this fan made video that will set the mood perfectly and once you get in enjoy the wonderful worlds and stories Bioware created for us.
