SWTOR Max Character Slots to be expanded to 50

BioWare is considering expanding the max amount of character slots to 50 in Star Wars: The old Republic. This is to accommodate the Dark vs Light event. Maximum Character Slots Per Server | 06.28.2016, 03:07 PM Hey folks! One of the questions that came out of the Dark vs. Light Event announcement was the current maximum character limits per server. There are some players who have all 40 slots filled, and were concerned about participating in the event. I wanted to let you know that we are actively testing right now the possibility of increasing that maximum by 10. That would mean that a subscriber could have a server maximum of 50 characters. We are exploring if this is a safe change to make and I am hopeful that I will have an answer about this today. As soon as I have any other information I will pass it on….

What Would You Do with 16 Level 55 Toons?

So what do you do if you really, really love SWTOR? Or at least if you really love leveling in SWTOR? Well, we found someone who answered this by maxing out all 16 slots in max level toons. Here’s the screenshot to prove it.   Honestly, it is pretty impressive. I’m far too busy to do this in MMORPGs anymore but there was a time when I would have loved to fill my character slots with max levels just like this. I wonder how many total hours he has into this account. If you have multiple 55s, did you get faster with each leveling experience? Maybe he really made use of some of those double and triple experience weekends! Here are some questions you might ask someone with 16 max level toons: Which one was the most fun to level? Which one leveled the quickest? PvP Daily – yes or…

Female SWTOR Characters Got Bustier?

There’s no denying that female video game characters often have large breasts. The reasons why have long been debated. Perhaps it’s a throwback to comic book culture and early feminine heroines. Or maybe it’s because many early video game developers were men and they liked these busty characters. Or maybe it just looks good in video animation. Whatever the reason, we do see more busty females than flat-chested ones in video games. As for me, I don’t really mind. In fact, as a female gamer who most always plays female characters, I usually make mine very large breasted. In games that have a slider on character creation, I slide that sucker all the way automatically and make those puppies as big as they’ll go. Then if it looks odd, I’ll adjust as needed until I like the way my girl looks. But 99% of the time, I leave those boobs…

Ability Delay — Character Responsiveness Can Make or Break SWTOR

While every new game will have some bugs, there are bugs that are much more serious in game than others. Some, in fact, can be completely game breaking and this is frustrating for someone who enjoys the game but then gets caught by a bug like the ability delay that is slowing character responsiveness in SWTOR. A thread on the official forums breaks down this very important issue that could make or break SWTOR. The original poster explains the issue: “The “Character Responsiveness” for lack of a better term, is how “smooth” the game plays from your avatars perspective. I have played SWG and EQ to a lesser degree as well as Warhammer Online and several other MMOs and I must honestly say that Bioware has gotten this all too important aspect much better than any previous MMO that I have experienced (with the obvious exception, to which we will…
