SWTOR Game Update 4.4: Known Issues

I told him not to run with lightsabers

With a new game update comes new bugs. Here are a list of known issues with game update 4,4: The Collections unlock button does not function within the Collections menu for Fallen Defender’s armor set and the Ginx companion. The description for the Plunderer Pack within the Cartel Market does not list “Weapon Tuning” from the list of available item categories that are drawn from. The source listed on the tooltip pop-up of the inventory icon for the Plundered TC-16 Spewie Display Pedestal decoration is “Alliance Supply Crate” instead of “Cartel Market: Plunderer Pack.” The inventory icon for the Iknayid pet reward from the Eternal Championship does not match the in game pet model. Unavailable Cartel Market items are listed in Collections. With the exception of the first one, these are all issues with the cartelmarket. Apparently BioWare  are OK with shipping with issues they know about to the CM…

SWTOR Win-traders, Exploits, and Actions Being Taken

SWTOR Win-traders

Eic Musco updated the SWTOR Community about BioWare taking actions against PVP Win traders in Star Wars: The old Republic Hey folks, Now that we are a few weeks into the Season I want to give you an update on actions we are taking to keep the Season as fair as possible. First, we have identified some players who were participating in win-trading. Those players have had appropriate actions taken against their account. We will continue to monitor this throughout the rest of the season. Accounts that partake in win-trading will receive action up to and including suspension time and ratings being reset across their account. We know that there have been questions this season specifically regarding the use of hacks and exploits. Know that since the start of the season we have been very aggressively seeking out and sanctioning the accounts involved. If you suspect that a player is…

Star Wars Casinos and Gambling

Star Wars Casinos and Gambling

It’s a big Star Wars world out there, much like the vast nature of online gaming. Star Wars casinos and gambling are a part of the storyline but we won’t see much of that in any Star Wars games, especially now that Disney has the rights to the brand. When they discontinued the Star Wars and Marvel slot machines because they didn’t sit with their idea of “family friendly” gaming, it was apparent we wouldn’t see gambling or casinos in any soon-to-come Star Wars games. This is unfortunate since the stats have shown us that many Star Wars fans also like online gaming such as casinos and gambling, even if it’s just for fun and not for real money. A lot of online gamers also enjoy playing slots or similar casino games online. Not everyone, of course, but there is some overlap in the fan base. So let’s talk gambling…

Eternal Empire Recon Walker changes comming to SWTOR

Eternal Empire Recon Walker

Eric Musco just informed the community that The Eternal Empire Recon Walker, previously a rare drop from Star Fortress, will drop in Eternal Championship and become bound on legacy. Hey folks, I wanted to pass on some information regarding a change to the Eternal Empire Recon Walker that is coming in Game Update 4.4. Currently, the Walker is a rare drop from The Exarch in Star Fortresses. We are making two changes to the mount. First, the Walker will now also be available from an Eternal Championship vendor. Second, we are changing the item from Bind on Equip to Bind on Legacy. If you have an active GTN sale at the time of 4.4’s release, this will behave normally. However at the time of sale or expiration, the item will become Bind on Legacy. Thanks everyone. -eric Join the forum discussion on this post
