Pre-Game Release: It's Been Great

Few communities were as large and as active before a game is released as the Star Wars Battlefront community was. I joined the growing community in the end of April and was simply amazed at the number of people talking about the game 6 months before it came out! So, in this thread I would like us to reflect on the great moments that occured before this great game was released.

My fondest memories were in the clan community. My clan, the Imperial Expeditionary Force, was the first public clan for the game and since our release in Late April 2004 over 50 clans have joined that growing community. Despite a few conflicts here and there, the clan community was overall fgriendly towards each other and many lasting friendships between leaders and members occured. THe 18 members in the IEF's two divisions are all extremely close and will remain close for who knows how long. Almost all the other successful clans have hhad this happen and this has been the most rewarding part of being active in this community.

Share your memories.


Leader of the Imperial Expeditionary Force, the first clan created for Battlefront.

Well this is now the hard spot between pre- and post-release. People getting the game, uncertain etc. I think the best part about pre-release was when we got dev input

Dont look at me, I fled when chaos erupted here, and just recently came back. But the Ewok Alliance was a fond memory.

Its kind of sad how this happens when a game thats been highly anticipated comes out. Kinda like the end of LotR: The Return of the King.
