SWTOR Guild Summit Day 1

3:45 PM – Day 1 of the SWTOR Guild Summit is here! I recently registered at the DoubleTree and there are crowds forming around the lobby as others get settled into their rooms. We’re super excited but for those of you at home anxiously awaiting updates, there isn’t too much to say yet. Tonight is more of a social event as we will leave the DoubleTree at 6pm for a screening of Star Wars: Episode 1 in 3D at the Alamo Drafthouse.

Those of you not from Texas may not be familiar with the Alamo Drafthouse so I will tell you, it’s one of the coolest movie theaters around. We will eat dinner there (they serve it right to you in your movie) and it’s a lot of fun. The atmosphere is always great, fun and relaxed at any Alamo Drafthouse I’ve been to. But you won’t be getting any updates from me while we’re in there because a) I want to see the movie and b) they will kick your tush out for using your cell phone.

Today was all about signing in, getting our T-Shirts (pics to come), paperwork and non-disclosures and getting our schedule of events for the next couple of days. There are some fun things to come starting Monday morning, however (which is also when the livestream starts).

Some things on the agenda:

  • State of the Game presentation
  • Studio Tour of BioWare Austin (sorry, I can’t take any photos in there)
  • Discussions on- Operations and Flashpoints, PvP, Legacy System, Economy and Crew Skills, Roleplaying, Guild features, upcoming UI changes 
  • Dinner with the Developers
  • and more!

I will be live-blogging each day here from the Summit in Austin and also Tweeting so stay tuned to get all the info first and live from the scene.

Youwill be able to access the livestream here and to follow the event on Twitter using thehashtag #SWTORSummit

A child of the Nintendo generation, she believes they just don’t make games like they used to but sometimes, they make them even better! While consoles will always be her first love, Lisa spends most of her gaming time on the PC these days- on MMOs and first-person shooters in particular.
