SWTOR: Class Changes: Corruption Sorcerer / Seer Consular

Eric Musco from Bioware has posted a list of the planned changes for Corruption Sorcerer and Seer Consular coming in Patch 5.3. Class Changes: Corruption Sorcerer / Seer Consular | 06.22.2017, 08:21 PM These changes will undoubtedly look and feel harsh to players who have been healing on their Sorcerers / Sages for a long time. The healing changes for Sorcerers / Sages pull the Corruption / Seer discipline down to the target HPS. We say the target HPS instead of their target HPS because all three healers have the same target HPS. In future balance patches, the other healers can expect to see changes to their healing capabilities as well to ensure they are in line with the target. Note: All changes below are currently in development and are subject to change before being released. Sorcerer Reduced the amount of healing done by Dark Heal by 4.86% Increased the…

SWTOR: Class changes: Nerf vs. Buff

Our bellowed community manager for Star Wars The Old Republic Eric Musco, took on the forums today answering an old question on nerfs vs. buffs off classes. Check it out: Any time that nerfs happen during Class balance, there is a common question we receive “Instead of nerfing , why not buff all of the other Classes up to their performance?” This is a really good question and we want to try to explain to you why we handle balance this way. From that thread, the main point you need to understand is that we balance Classes/Disciplines based on specific DPS, HPS, and DTPS targets. Now, those balance targets not only dictate Class/Discipline balance, but they dictate balance across all combat in the entire game. Every Mission, Operation boss, piece of gear, and more is all factored around those balance targets. Let’s say that our hypothetical target for Ranged Burst…

Star Wars: Force arena comes with a new update that will bring some more balance changes to the game. These balance changes come from player feedback and also match data. Before we jump into the changes, let’s take a quick look at the stats of our newest units, the Imperial Sentry Droid and the Phoenix Squadron. Imperial Sentry Droid Phoenix Squadron Galactic Empire Boba Fett Boba Fett is one of the galaxy’s most notorious bounty hunters.

Star Wars Battlefront 2 Trailer recreated in Battlefront 2 2005

Here is something pretty awesome. Youtuber Angry Ewok had to much time on his hands, and decided to recreat the complease Star Wars: Battlefront 2 trailer showcased at EA play last week. Check it out: As as stated in the beginning, this is both crazily awesome, and sad at the same time. I haven’t played BF2 for some time, and I don’t remember it looking this… bad. Part of that is because I am  remembering the parts of the new Battlefront 2 and how they’re similar, and thereby comparing them in my mind even if I  don’t realize it… And I am comparing these graphics to the graphics of the new game, and the gap is so wide it makes these seem even worse. But that is just me rambling. Star Wars Battlefront 2 is slated for release on November 17 for PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 with a $59.99 price tag….
