SWTOR Drops 2 Places in Raptr’s Most Played

Posted by on Dec 17, 2014 in SWTOR | 0 comments

While it’s still in the top 15, SWTOR has sadly dropped two ranks in the Raptr’s Most Played list this month. This means it moved from 12th place to 14th, which really isn’t a super large jump. Some big names topped the list in November, which could explain SWTOR getting bumped down two slots. Also, the release of WoW’s new expansion means it sits comfortably in the #2 spot, just below the ever-popular League of Legends. 3rd place is DOTA 2 and CS:GO brought up the 4th place spot. Raptr credits this drop in ranks to some of the new titles that have been released (no surprise) especially to WoW’s new expansion. Another funny fact: “For the first time since October 2013, Spider Solitaire made its way back into Most Played. Turns out Thanksgiving isn’t just about turkey, football, and arguing with relatives — it’s also about playing Solitaire, as gameplay hours for the month peaked on the...

Training cost is a thing of the past in SWToR

Posted by on Dec 6, 2014 in bioware, News, SWTOR | 0 comments

Bioware’s community manager Eric Musco, posted a very interesting thread at the official forums today relating to training costs. Musco, responding to a number of fan threads requesting the removal of training costs from the game, decided to take action and bring forward the suggestion to developers for consideration. After discussing the matter internally, they decided to remove training costs all together! So,when you login next week you won’t be required to pay any credits for your training! Eric’s complete post follows below: Hey folks, Let’s talk a bit about training costs for your characters abilities. One thing has become clear from the player feedback in not only this thread, but since launch: players do not like training costs. It is a situation where every level you will see your hard earned credits go to a holographic Hutt doctor in order to make yourself a bit stronger. We have been talking about this topic internally for quite some time and when you add...

The day we were waiting is finally here! “Shadow of Revan” is now available for download for anyone who purchased the expansion before November 2, 2014. The rest will have to wait until December 9 to get full access to Bioware’s latest expansion.   Some highlights: All levels can now reach Level 60 New locations added – Yavin IV and Rishi Two new level 56-60 flashpoints Two new level 60 operations Dromund Kaas and Coruscant Strongholds can now be purchased for 3 credits!

A lot of the features listed on their post are things that prominent members of the community have being asking for quite some time. One last thing to mention is that Patch 3.0 is 2.5 GB so if you plan on playing tomorrow,...
