When Will SWTOR See New PvP Content?

Posted by on Oct 9, 2014 in Eric Musco, pvp, Shadow of Revan | 0 comments

We have heard a lot of talk about SWTOR and the new content coming out recently. Fans are hyped up about all the good stuff coming with 3.0 but one player on the forums asked something that I was also thinking: Can we expect to see any PvP content or news any time soon. While SWTOR isn’t marketed as a PvP game, it does still have those elements to it and some players really like it so it would be great to see Bioware do a little more in this area to keep things fun and interesting. Community Manager Eric Musco had this to say in response on the forums: Hey Jaiyne, Good question, let me take a stab at this one. If you are asking specifically for news about new content, such as a Warzone or Arena map, then the answers is unfortunately no. There are no new maps, specific to PvP coming in the expansion. However, if you are asking about changes coming to PvP then the answer is a resounding yes. Disciplines by itself will entirely change the landscape of Classes in PvP in 3.0 and...

GSF Changes in 3.0: Requisition Gain Increases; No New Maps or Ships

Posted by on Oct 8, 2014 in Galactic Starfighter, Shadow of Revan | 0 comments

BioWare posted an update on the official forums today, letting us know, that there will be no new maps or ships coming with Shadow of Revan. Personally I’m not that surprised about this, as this game update came between major game expansions. I also feel space PVP have enough maps that the lack of new ones isn’t a big deal. What Galactic starfighter nees are some new game modes. There’s so many cool things they could do, it’s such a waste of potential to only have node capture and deathmatch. Anyways. Check out the new here, or below: Howdy Space Jockeys! I wanted to pop in and let y’all know that there aren’t going to be any new maps or ships for GSF in 3.0. However, we are making a change to the Requisition curve in that all the Requisition rewards are getting a permanent boost. Remember though (because Musco would kill me if I didn’t say this) that this change is subject to testing and not final in any way. Here is a list of the changes for the...

No Public PTS for 3.0: Only A Closed Beta

Posted by on Oct 7, 2014 in Beta, Shadow of Revan | 0 comments

Eirc Musco posted an update on the official forums regarding the upcomming Star Wars: The old Republic update – Shadow of Revan. There wil be no testing on the public test servers this time, as the game update will be tested purly on a closed servers. Just like a regular beta test as we also experienced with Rise of the hutt cartel. It would seem like this is a way for BioWare,  to stop miners from leaking new game infomation, from the upcomming expansion,  for as long as possible. Hey Minisep! Let me answer your questions, and explain a bit about how PTS will work for Shadow or Revan. There will be a PTS for Shadow of Revan. However, similar to Rise of the Hutt Cartel, this PTS will be on a closed server. This closed PTS server will be testing all of the expansion! As a note, for Rise we also did a PTS which was open to the public which tested some of the 2.0 features. We will not be doing that this time around. The only testing that will happen for 3.0 will be on our Closed...

With the announcement of Game Update 3.0 coming soon, the developers have decided to give us some more info about new aspects of the game. First up is an introduction to Disciples on the Developer Blog today. This will be the new version of the class system in SWTOR and will change how we give abilities and skills to our classes. This looks like it could be a good way to Here’s a snippet from the blog: Greetings! Today, we bring to you Disciplines, a major overhaul to the class system that will be coming live with Game Update 3.0! At its very core, the Disciplines System replaces the current Skill Tree system while offering a wider array of impactful utility choices to expand their character and the ability for a character’s identity to surface much earlier in the level path. The Disciplines System changes the way we think about and develop the classes themselves, which will translate into a more balanced game and the capacity to expand levels and abilities more often. We’re...
