Recently, a thread was made that conjectured the "death" of SWVIII. Well, ladies and gentlemen--and the rest of you (:p), I am extraordinarily pleased to inform you that reports of our death have been greatly exaggerated.

However, that's not to say everything is sunshine and flowers. Yes, we are in a bad slump. Blame it on school, CMAC, the reboot, the economy, Bush, or Obama... :p But we're in a rough patch.

On top of that, we're in the midst of extensive game restructuring to repair many long-standing problems that have made SWVIII teeter on the edge of becoming a nationsim instead of a role-playing game. It's taking longer than we expected, too. Activity is slowed to a crawl and more casual players have probably left for greener pastures.

I realize this. And I say it does not matter. No, my friends... it doesn't make a damn bit of difference. Because SWVIII has always come back strong, and it will come back even stronger than before. The new economy is almost complete and will be ready for deployment within a couple of days. Not a week. Days.

The new battlesystem is done.

We have the new skin (for some time, now), the Holonet database, and the new issues templates. We have the skilled players. We just need to wake the game up once the pieces are all in place. And that will be very, very soon.

So no, do not write an obituary for this game. Not yet, my friends. We're still here, and we're coming back with a vengeance.

Who's with us?

All right, I have the Empire, Rebellion, and Tiara's lists. I still need Nespis, Krytocracy (assuming they're still in the game), and Ssi-Ruuk (same assumption) as well as any privately-owned planets.

*shakes fist* Send in those planet lists, you lunkheads! Or I'll wing-slap you! :p

You would think people'd be happy to get their money...

If it helps, you can give me their income :D

Ssi-Ruuk? Helloooooooooooo... :p

Everyone else is done. Now, those of you who are doing redesigns, find your issues and fix them so they conform to the new standards. Once that is done, your assets will be wiped, your income reset, and you will be given a starting bank to rebuild your forces and provide a little cash left over... and then the economy will proceed as normal. :)
