SWTOR Gree event is coming back… Sooner or later

Eric Musco Just informed the community that the Gee event will be making a return to Star Wars: The old Republic, but it might be a while. The event needs to get an update, so it fits to level 60 game play first. Hey folks, I can confirm that it is definitely our plan to bring the Gree event back at some point in the future. When the event returns, it will also be scaled up to level 60. Unfortunately, I don’t have any details around timing yet but stay tuned for any future announcements! Thanks!...

BioWare won’t re-grant bugged achievements

Eric Musco Just informed the community that BioWare won’t give back players any achievements, that players lost with game update 3.0.1. That’s right folks. You now need to re- earn all your lost achievements! Hey folks, Unfortunately, for the achievements that we addressed in 3.0.1, you will need to earn them again. It is our usual policy that when an achievement is bugged, that once fixed, we will not re-grant the achievement. This is typically due to it being difficult to isolate players who have earned the achievement versus...

SWTOR Drops 2 Places in Raptr’s Most Played

SWTOR Drops 2 Places in Raptr’s Most Played

While it’s still in the top 15, SWTOR has sadly dropped two ranks in the Raptr’s Most Played list this month. This means it moved from 12th place to 14th, which really isn’t a super large jump. Some big names topped the list in November, which could explain SWTOR getting bumped down two slots. Also, the release of WoW’s new expansion means it sits comfortably in the #2 spot, just below the ever-popular League of Legends. 3rd place is DOTA 2 and CS:GO brought up the 4th place spot. Raptr credits this drop in ranks to...

Star Wars Fan Film: Retribution

It’ll be a while until Star Wars Episode VII hits theaters, so in the meantime Star Wars fans can watch a half-hour movie created by… a college football player. Called Retribution, the film was written and directed by Georgia University student Chris Conley, who started work on the short video last November. While Retribution doesn’t have the same cast and budget of actual Star Wars movies, it’s actually quite good, even though it was filmed in Conley’s University surroundings. With a simple plot, decent sound and visual effects as well as...

Server Lag Being Reduced with game update 3.0.1

Bioware is fixing the server lag issues that came with game update 3.0. hopefully they do not nerf instance sizes though, but it looks like it. Hey folks, First off, I apologize if you feel that we haven’t communicated around looking into the lag/delay issues which have been happening since 3.0 launched. When 3.0 / SoR early access started there were quite a few issues around things like ability delay. We worked very quickly to make some changes to our “instances” in order to help alleviate those problems. Since then we have...
