Mass Protest Policy
 
Occasionally in Star Wars Galaxies, players feel the need to express their discontent with mass protests.  With mass gatherings maliciously organized to disrupt other’s play experience, we will restrict the number of players gathering in any one area to maintain the stability of the service.
 
Mass gatherings of players in a concentrated area are problematic due to the underlying technology shared by all massively multiplayer games.  First and foremost, the technology of Star Wars Galaxies does not allow for hundreds of players to gather in a single area of the world without interfering with the play experience of all players in that area and potentially disrupting the operation of the entire game world. 
 
Large-scale gatherings that harm the experience of other players are a violation of the game’s terms of service (TOS).   If you are attending any kind of large player gathering and the performance of your client degrades significantly, you should consider leaving the area before further degradation occurs.  If a large-scale gathering occurs and a Customer Service Representative (CSR) requests that you leave the area, please do so immediately.  Failure to follow the requests of CSRs is also a violation of the TOS.  Any violation of the TOS can result in sanctions on your account, including suspension of play privileges and/or cancellation of the account.
 
We value our all of our customer's feedback and opinions, but such feedback needs to presented in a way that doesn't interfere with your fellow players’ game experience or the operation of the service.  Your feedback is most effective when it is constructive and routed to the appropriate channel of communication.
