Trials of Obi-Wan refunds offered

LucasArts and Sony Online offer money back for players who bought the latest expansion before sweeping game changes were announced.

by

Last week, just days after shipping the Star Wars Galaxies expansion pack Trials of Obi-Wan, LucasArts and Sony Online Entertainment revealed that they were going to give the massively multiplayer online role-playing game a massive overhaul.

The update will introduce sweeping changes to the online game, such as redefining all characters into nine professions and eliminating some skills entirely, such as creature handling. While these and other changes will be introduced gradually, the initial reaction from many of Galaxies' players, some of whom are having years of progress eliminated or trivialized, has been quite negative.

To appease some of those angered by the reworking of Star Wars Galaxies, Sony Online and LucasArts are offering refunds to anyone with a Galaxies account in good standing who purchased the Trials of Obi-Wan before November 3. Players seeking refunds should send their name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and Station Name to refunds@soe.sony.com. Alternatively, they can send written requests to the following address:

SWG Trials of Obi-Wan Refunds
8928 Terman Court
San Diego, CA 92121

All requests must be made by December 1, 2005.

Hmmmm, offer an new expansion pack with more content for Creature Handlers and other professions. Two days later you change the game so all but 8 professions (they added spies) no longer exist. Did someone at SOE smell a lawsuit? I think so. SOE you are dirty, mean, money grubbers. I will never buy another one of your products, EVER.
