There are times you strive for greatness, to reach lofty goals and accomplish
noble deeds. Then there’s the rest of the times you just want to blow shit up.

In case there is any doubt, here is the official word from GameSpy that they are shutting down, and here is the official word from EA that they are retiring Star Wars Battlefron II after the shutdown.

One of two reasons.

1. GameSpy has not stopped their service yet.

2. The servers seen are using an alternative service that replaces GameSpy.


At the time of this posting (6/19/2014) GameSpy is still operating. We have experimented with an alternative service called GameMaster.

Looks like GameSpy finally got around to pulling the plug.

You can still play on line by using Gamemaster's DNS settings.
