Eric Musco announced today that SWToR class forums will be getting a makeover soon. The change will help to consolidate the content and make it easier to receive feedback on SWToR. You can review Eric’s post in detail below:
I wanted to let you know about some changes coming to the Class forums. First, what is happening.
- We are collapsing all of the individual Class forums (such as Jedi Knight, Sith Warrior, etc) into the the Class forum. There will no longer be subforums for each individual Class.
- We are also going to collapse each of the mirrored Advanced Classes together. Example, the Sentinel and Marauder will now share the same subforum.
What this means is that when you are on the forums, if you click into the Class forum, it will be a general discussion of all things pertaining to Classes. Inside of the Class forum, there will now be 8 subforums, one for each set of Advanced Class mirrors.
We are doing this for a few reasons:
- The Class forums do not contain a large amount of traffic by themselves, by collapsing them we allow one more populated place for players to discuss Classes!
- A lot of the conversation in the Class forums also revolves around the Class stories. These topics are better suited to the Story and Lore forum and so those discussions can now occur there. (Reminder: Please use spoiler tags )
- The collapse of the Advanced Class subforums is for the purpose of allowing us to both gather feedback, and to respond to each AC mirror more easily. Often we will see folks copy and pasting their thoughts or questions in both forums, and we often will do the same when posting comments in them. This way it allows us to create one place for those ACs to look.
In order for all of this to happen, we are going to be temporarily closing the Class forums. You will notice shortly after this post that the forum will be unreachable as we work to move things around. Due to the volume of threads we will be moving it will take a bit to get everything moved over. It is my expectation that we will bring the new Class forum and subforums up by Friday of next week. Note that if you have any of those forums bookmarked you will need to update them once we go live.
