SWTOR Season 7 Update

Eric Musco too on the official forums to  explain why it took the SWTOR Developers so damn long to release the Top 96 pvp titles for Season 7. Season 7 Update | 01.13.2017, 02:46 PM   Hey folks, Let’s talk about Season 7. We have just finished our full investigation of Season 7 and a few things have happened. All users who were found to be win-trading, hacking, botting, etc. have had their Season 7 ratings wiped out on all of their characters, they have been removed from the leaderboards, and appropriate ToS action has been levied against their account. With those actions being taken, we have gone ahead and sent the top 96 titles to the top performers of Season 7, so be sure to check your mailbox. We wanted to explain a little bit about why this process delayed the Season 7 rewards. In past seasons we started…

SWTOR: Changes to Gearing through Galactic Command

The SWTOR Devs over at BioWare is doing some gearing changes to Galactic Command with the upcoming patch 5.1. More info will be released on SWTOR livestream on Thursday: Changes to Gearing through Galactic Command | 12.13.2016, 10:06 AM Hey folks, Please keep all of your feedback coming on Command Crates, Command XP, and Galactic Command. The team is always looking over your feedback and looking for ways we can improve the system! We have been reading everything you sent our way, and there are couple of stand-out points (this is by no means everything): There needs to be a way to work towards a specific slot of gear to fill in gaps (especially set bonuses) for people who are unlucky with Command Crates. Gearing your other characters is too grindy. With this in mind, the team has some important changes planned for Game Update 5.1 coming next month to…

BioWare Interview and SWTOR Knights of the Eternal Throne

We’ve been seeing some changes to SWTOR, especially since last year when the developers shifted the focus of the game. They decided to boost the single-player aspects of the game and while there were some players who leaned more toward the MMORPG aspect who didn’t like this, there are many more who love the story and the single-player elements. In short, they’re doing what works for them and many fans and Knights of the Fallen Empire was a clear example of that. But now we have SWTOR Knights of the Eternal Throne. Is the focus still on single-player elements? Why can’t a game be both great for single player and great for multi-player? Long time World of Warcraft players will attest that game got it right. There’s something for everyone and you don’t need to invest any time in multiplayer aspects of the game if it’s not your thing, but still…
