No. Sun Crusher is a test centre which has no Blue Frogs, Instant-trainers, and all of the other quick-start features. It will be a test centre for all those who want to "play" properly, with XP and grinding and proper advancement and economics. By no means will it be completed. It's just a more stable and "playable" version of the TC open to the public.

Yes. Sun Crusher will upon launch become a fully functional Play Server just like True Galaxies or Euro Chimaera, but hosted by the SWGEmu team.

SWGEMU now have a very captive audience and will draw any new players instantly. They have effectively killed off any of the other servers, some of which are better able to host a server.
Most of you wont care because you've been blowing sunshine up SWGEMU's arse for so long, but a lot of people have put a great deal of effort into preparing a dedicated server and that work has been nulified by this announcement.

The future doesnt seem so bright.
i disagree with you.

atleast i myself, will be creating and playing characters on multiple servers at start. then decide after while which suits best for my needs / likings.

every one will be bit different in one way or other, be it location,community or certain aspects of the game/future plans. i'm sure there is plenty of players atleast for the major servers out there.

wouldn't it be better and best for all of us if the different communities could work together with EMU team instead of taking it like competition? we're all in this cause we want pre-cu back.

SWGemu will have plenty of severs, default, RP, PVP all of which will be vanilla or have some sort of mods on them.

We will host one server. The type still hasn't be decided yet. The different communities will all offer their own flavors, so everyone will find a server that is to their liking. That is the beauty of open source.

just like on soe's swg when there was many servers to chose from, there is multiple servers to chose from with the emu. those servers like true galaxies and the such i am sure have built tight bonds and they will not want to go to another server because they enjoy the atmosphere there. just because the emu team is going to have thier own server, does not mean every one will flock to the emu team's server. I for one will see which one is more to my liking and depending on many factors will chose a server, not necessarily this one.

The server will be wiped? Whats the point of grinding in a server if you don't get to reap the rewards? If its gonna get wiped before launch then I won't bother until launch.
