New Dev Post – Update on Win-Trading in Season 5

Posted by on May 21, 2015 in Eric Musco, pvp, SWTOR | 0 comments

  Eric Musco just posted on the official SWTOR forums regarding Season 5 PvP Win Trading. Apparently this practice  saw a 90% decrease in win trading activity and 50% decrease in trolls. Update on Win-Trading in Season 5 | 05.21.2015, 07:22 PM Hey folks, I am here to give an update on win-trading and ranked “trolls” for Season 5. As of earlier this week we sent out another round of warnings and action against players who were participating in win-trading or being trolly in ranked play. I did want to provide some additional information besides just letting you know timing of action going out. Many of you requested that we be more up front about the action we were taking against players, and you were right in asking for that! Our aggressive action against these players along with being up front and transparent about has led to a fairly substantial change, let me give you some numbers: Since we started communicating about win-trading and the actions we were going to take, nearly...

Cartel Coins vs Credits – A Guide to Unlocking Efficiently

Posted by on May 19, 2015 in Cartel Coins, Cartel Market, SWTOR | 0 comments

You’ve probably noticed before that there is a disparity between the amount of credits and the number of cartel coins that are needed for unlocks. You could waste a lot of coins and credits trying to get unlocks but there is a very handy resource that makes it easier for you to unlock efficiently, making the most of your coins and credits. This one is coming at you from SWTOR Network and this guide is the updated version of the same from last year. Here is an introduction to the guide from the creator: “In order to compare the cost of legacy unlocks easily, I’m using ‘Credits per Coin’ which is simply the credit cost of each unlock, divided by the number of cartel coins the unlock costs. The higher the number, the more I’d recommend unlocking using Cartel Coins. Whether you should unlock an item with Cartel Coins or Credits will depend largely on which currency is more limited for you, i.e. if you have hundreds of millions of credits, you might as well save your coins for...

Harassment of SWTOR Developers

Posted by on May 7, 2015 in bioware, News, SWTOR | 0 comments

Stop. Just stop for a minute. We like to have fun here. Sometimes we even like to push the boundaries. We are not strangers to controversy. That said, I read something incredibly disturbing today and we need to take some time to discuss it. This isn’t something that is entirely new. It’s a topic we’ve talked about before. It’s related to another topic I’ve talked about on a gamer podcast in recent months: swatting. It’s something we (the SWTOR community) need to talk about. This post on the SWTOR forums talks about recent harassment of SWTOR developers: Hey folks, I feel the need to make this post after some things happened yesterday. Yesterday, John made some posts communicating our views, and looking for feedback, around the state of Sentinels and Marauders. We knew going in that some of what we were going to say might not be what players wanted to hear, but the Combat team felt it was very important that you understood how we view things from...
