Posted by on Jul 17, 2013 in screenshots | 0 comments

Recently we brought you news of the “That’s So SWTOR” Screenshot Contest on Reddit and there is now officially a winner of the 2400 Cartel Coin card giveaway. The winner is Tacogoat! Her submission can be found here: http://i.imgur.com/vxzBBvh.jpg The contest host explains why she chose this as the winning entry: ” really feels like what I wanted out of this contest. The picture is alive! Lots of people being social, some guilds, some not, some republic, some inperial. Just wonderful. There’s lots of different things going on, too, but it’s still very easily recognizable as the Star Wars universe. Twi’lek Holodancers, lightsabers, droids, a Nar Shaddaa cantina… and that’s totally a holo-rancor in the back! It really just jumped out at me, but it definitely wasn’t the only one. I really loved a lot of the more cinematicly themed ones and the beautiful landscapes. So many great pictures! It was not unanimous and was put to a vote of a few top picks. I might just have to pick another specific screenshot theme and do another one of these for things like landscapes and whatnot 😉 For those wondering, I chose to disregard the inclusion of a UI in any screenshot. This contest wasn’t necessarily about finding a perfect shot and taking it. I wanted to see what you guys have been through in the past year and a half and see what you’ve all documented with that print screen button. Sometimes the most memorable experiences are captured with a UI up. That doesn’t make the moment less special. Anyways, congratulations, Tacogoat! I’ll be sending you a PM regarding your prize! And keep an eye out, guys, I’ll try to do something like this again in the future. If anyone would like to donate anything for a community competition like this, send us a message. Otherwise I’ll host another one next time I have an extra $20 lying around. 😉 <3 -g” Judging by the comments, some people weren’t so happy with the results. But it wasn’t their contest so ultimately they can take a hike, right? For curiosity’s sake, do you agree that the winning screenshot shares the spirit of SWTOR? If you were entering the contest (or if you did) what screenie would you share? We want to see them and we want to know what you think would best depict SWTOR in one image according to you. Shout out in the...

SWTOR Fashion Friday for 6/7/13

Posted by on Jun 10, 2013 in screenshots | 0 comments

Reddit has a pretty cool community event for SWTOR going on called Fashion Friday and if you’re into fashion, SWTOR, roleplaying or just good fun, then you’ll probably like this. I’ve been following it for a few weeks now and there are some nice things coming out of it. Each week, user goldegl explains the rules: Please upvote for visibility. Self-posts give no karma. Alright, you fashionistas, let’s see em! I have been pretty amazed at some of the awesome looks that have come up in the past few weeks. I hope people save some of these awesome screenshots/looks in case they were needed for some kind of contest or giveaway or something… (In the business, we call that foreshadowing) But aaaaaanyways, let’s see what you got this week, folks! If you guys want to submit ideas or request a change with something, or even better, if you want to submit any kind of sidebar image, banner image, snoos (reddit alien), etc, go check out /r/swtortest! This is the a series of weekly community discussion posts brought up in this mod post. The intention here is to not only facilitate everyone who wants to show off their gear, but also to encourage people who wouldn’t normally post their gear to show it off anyways! All while keeping the subreddit nice and tidy! And this doesn’t just have to be your gear specifically. If you just want to show off your character because you think they look particularly awesome, do it! A couple of tips for people wanting to partake in the fun: To hide your UI press alt+z. To take a screencap in game, press the Print Screen button. Usually found here. The default folder for screenshots is located in Documents > Star Wars: The Old Republic > Screenshots. Try and find an area with nice lighting. Usually sunny planets are the best bet here unless you want a setting that matches/compliments your gear. I encourage people to include a list of what they’re wearing, but it’s not necessary. Sort comments by New to check out the newest stuff posted. Click and drag the left mouse button in game to move the camera. If anyone else has any relevant tips, either post em here or shoot me a PM. Have a good weekend guys! And then you get to see the posts from the community. This week we have Ironman look-alikes, near dubs for Mako and much more. Check out all the community posts and pictures here: Fashion Friday | 6/7/13 Do you participate in events like this? Have an idea for one of your own? We want to hear about...

Tales from the Republic Fleet

  “That’s amazing… you look just like me!” “Yeah, the doc did a great job. Your looks and charm got us in, now I should be able to get to the Senator’s computer. So, let’s get ready for the big date tomorrow night.” “Right. First thing – DON’T mention anything about the Senator’s hairpiece, he’s very self-conscious about it!…”   “The slaver said they were on a ship bound for Lonos Prime.” “Lonos? Keval, that’s in Sith space!” “I know, but I have a plan – there’s a slicer that can get us some fake ident chips and a transponder. That’ll get us onto the planet, at least.” *sighs* “Alright, brother. I should be able to meet up with you in a few days.” “Sounds good. I promise you, Jorda, we’ll find Mother and Father.” Oh yes, here we have Tales from the Republic Fleet. Previously we brought you the story of Tales of the Imperial Fleet, entertaining captioned screen shots from the game. You’ll have to head over to read the rest of it for yourself.
