Many thanks to all of your for your patience.

Update on whats going on.

I am waiting on the Q&A to come back from Lucasarts

Im just finalising the design for GB.com new look

I DO have a small segment of news on SWGB 2 but again, Im waiting on the Q&A and the ok from LA to mention it as it was a chat in confidence about it.

Lex has made some new updated strats and there will be a whole host of NEW random maps for you to play made by him and a few others.

Thats it! Once again, thanks to you all and spread the word.. GB.com is coming back to OWN!

Thank you DMUK for the heads up and from what you've posted, I can conclude that we haven't waited here in vain.

Cool stuff

Please spread the word on the zone. As you know, I am always first to get the news on the newest stuff from LA - hence why LA prefer this place to any other fansite.

I am still working on the site, when time allows and i am waiting on the Q&A from Lucasarts.


After some recent news I got about SWGB 2, I MIGHT hold the launch off...not too sure yet...but lets not get too excited as its nothing major in terms of news, but it is news.

I have asked a couple of questions on the new project so until i see the answers, will determine how the revamped GB.com looks.

After some recent news I got about SWGB 2
So then its official? They're making a sequel, and not some other RTS by another name (a la SSSI).

Compa_Mighty

I was thinking about that too, but I think it'll be a new game, not a sequel.

there is always something whit Gb.com
(almost never keeps up-to date..sorry but treu)

i think DMUK is just a bit lazy :p

he will probely delete this

DarthMaulUK
09-18-2003, 11:22 AM
And whats there to update?

You are always the one to pop into the forums and complain ackbar. If you don't like it, go somewhere else.

But remember this. Gb.com will be the ONLY website to have news of the next Lucasarts RTS first online.

i am sorry (i know how hard work a webside is)

but you could get rid of this:
As many of our users will have noticed GalacticBattles.com has been experiencing some server trouble. We are the process of correcting the problem, and hope to have everything back to normal by the end of the week. We apologize for the difficulties and hope you bear with us.

and replace it whit this:
We are working on a new GB.com site! ...

Is everything ready yet?

DarthMaulUK
09-22-2003, 12:47 PM
Im still waiting on the reply from LA.

Although I am working very hard to ensure that I have new information also about the new project - although I probably won't though :-(

As you can imagine, a website like this takes time to change around and fit all the content into a new design etc.

Won't be long for the Q&A

Man at least you know something about it!:rolleyes:

LOL, you know? You must already have everything ready and you're just creating greater expectation... ;) j/k

Can't wait to know what is this new project.

Argh...

Come on y'all waiting for nothing! Sorry to drop the hammer, even if a project was announced, you won't get your hands on nothing else then:''We are working on SWGB2/SWRTS''.

Wow now that's SO much...

Maybe I just not up on this...(i'm usually not), but who is lex. You talk like he's been around for awhile, but I have not yet heard of him.

BTW - Hi, Lex. Good to meet you. Did DMUK send you his e-mail address yet?

DarthMaulUK
10-07-2003, 02:13 PM
i did indeed.

Once the new GB.com site relaunches, it will rock. Content rich and heavy focus on downloads, new maps etc

Lex was/is in JoRT and usually hangs around at MFO where he occasionally organises tourneys. And he's probably the best player in Austria... :)

Lex

Hey don't miss this thread...

What I knew b4 Garry left (http://www.lucasforums.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=115023)

Thanks for the info DMUK. Does this mean we have to wait for a long time for the new site? Or are you going to launch w/o the Q&A?

10-14-2003, 01:59 PM
Hey, what happened with galacticbattles.com ? When I open site, there is information about server trouble. You have written that problem will be deleted at the end of the week. But I have been waiting for long time and the problem still existes. What happened ?

Praetorian
10-14-2003, 06:54 PM
When DMUK updates the website (when LA announces the next big RTS) that will go away. For now, the site is pretty much down. Some of the other guys here might have more specific answers and/or some other good sites.

I was wondering why the Galacticbattles.com site was still down. I hope Lucasarts comes out with a press release on their new Star Wars RTS game. Let's hope E3 2004 in May will showcase it. I hope for information, etc. before May.

lukeiamyourdad
02-27-2004, 01:37 AM
I guess DMUK is still waiting for some news...

Compa_Mighty
04-26-2004, 06:29 PM
Not to bring you hopes down, but I don't think they'll announce anything this E3...

joesdomain
05-03-2004, 12:02 AM
Yeah, I think your right! They are concentrating on Mercenaries, Republic Commando, Battlefront, Galaxies:Jump to Lightspeed space expansion pack, and the rumored Knights of the Old Republic 2: Sith Lords (speculation) video games. I guess kiss Star Wars RTS games bye-bye for about 5 years at least.
