TORPARSE to Close 27 July

torparse

TORPARSE had one simple mission: to provide the best and easiest to use combat log parser for Star Wars: The Old Republic.

But now, they will be closing their doors forever. In an announcement made July 10th, TORPARSE explained that they will soon be shutting down the site. It is a sad and bittersweet announcement as the site has been such a useful tool for SWTOR players for all of this time.

 

Here s a snippet of that End of Service Announcement:

End of Service Announcement

Hey everybody, I’ve got some bad news today. I’ve been struggling with this decision for a few months now, but have made a decision to end the TORParse project effective 27 July 2013.

I’ve had a lot of fun developing this project and working with the community the last year and a half, but have ultimately made the decision to end this project due to a couple reasons. The most important reason is I do not play SWTOR anymore. While I still have an active subscription to the game, I haven’t actually played the game in several months, and even more so, haven’t played any high level content that this website is based around in over half a year. It is extremely difficult to stay motivated to work on a project that I no longer have any passion to develop. I’ll keep my opinions on the game to myself, but wish the developers and players of the game all the best; maybe one day I will return.

 

You can read the whole thing for yourself but it’s a bittersweet goodbye from a player who once had high hopes for SWTOR but now, after trying to justify any time still spent on the game has now decided they must move on. What do you think?

 

Continuing the project: “Lastly, I will consider only serious offers to transition the project to another development team. I would love to see this project last beyond just my own involvement. If you’re experienced and interested, please contact me at james@torparse.com. If there is no interest in transitioning the project, the website and ingame client will go down as planned on 27 July 2013.”
