SWTOR: Introduction to Guild Heraldry

Here is the latest blog post from BioWare Austine, explaining the new Guild Heraldry system coming with todays game update. Check it out:With Game Update 5.10.2 “Heralds of Victory” we are introducing a tool for Guilds to rally behind, Guild Heraldry, and a major re-work of the Preview Window. If you missed it, be sure to check out our detailed look into the Preview Window we posted in March. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at the Guild Heraldry system.

SWTOR Guild Ranking and Progressions

Is your guild registered for SWTOR? Do you know what you will be playing? What type of server will you be on? Will servers be faction balanced? These are all great questions for anyone looking to play SWTOR.

A lot of people are still decided on what they are going to play so the hopes are that the sides and the classes will balance themselves out more post-launch. However, early figures we have seen from multiple sources are showing a clear imbalance on sides and there is a website set up that shows this perfectly. There are some interesting statistics found on SWTOR Progress about guilds and who will be playing what. World stats show 39,370 people as “Undecided Empire” and…
