Betting on Rancor Fights in SWTOR

We’ve talked about betting and gambling in Star Wars before. It was present in the movies and in one way or another, it’s mentioned or referenced in most of the lore. What if you could bet on rancor fights in SWTOR like we see in the Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II trailer? Honestly, it makes sense to think in terms of the Star Wars Universe. As you may recall, Jabba the Hutt kept a rancor in a dark chamber below his throne room. When Skywalker killed it, Jabba was outraged and ordered the Jedi and his friends to be publicly executed. Think of it like a high roller losing his favorite race horse. No one would be happy about that. Rancors or the bull rancor have often been part of many Star Wars games, too, often written into mini bosses or even main bosses. The look sometimes changes but…

A Currency Far, Far Away: Money and the Star Wars Universe

Currency, like religion, is a keystone element of any empire but one frequently overlooked in fantasy and science fiction; after all, slapping a new name on a gold coin is the perfect foil to spending hours working out the macro economics of something truly unique. Star Wars got it right, building its universe around the Galactic Credit Standard, a card-based digital currency forged on the Sojourn moon, and one whose value is at the mercy of war. Galactic Economy Of course, there are plenty of other currencies in the Star Wars universe, Drallish crowns and the Tatooine druggat to name just two, with many of them arising as a reaction to the Clone Wars and the Battle of Endor. In the former case, a lack of trust in the Credit created tens of different currencies; in that, the post-Endor galactic economy has parallels with real-world “cryptocurrency” like Bitcoin, a type…

Rumored Star Wars Actors for New Netflix Show

Star Wars: The Old Republic is one of the best Star Wars games to date. You know we love it and we know our readers love it. Now what if there was a new show set in the Old Republic era? Netflix wants to bring us just that. Almost 200,000 fans have petitioned to Disney via Change.org for an “Old Republic Era” TV series and it seems like Disney is taking notice. According to the recent scoop from Hollywood Reporter, Ted Sarandos (Chief Content Officer) at Netflix had some initial talks on this subject with Disney. The rumor says there are even some great scripts they are going through to see if the series would be a good fit. It’s definitely something exciting that we plan to follow to see what happens with it. We still have no idea if it’s actually going to be a thing (here’s hoping) but Entertain-O-Rama has…

How Marka Ragnos Created The Most Powerful Sith of All Time

“The chains of the grave cannot hold a Dark Lord of the Sith…“―Marka Ragnos Who was the most powerful Sith of all time and how did he come to be? Over the history of Star Wars, we’ve seen fallen Jedi and those who swapped sides. Marka Ragnos was a half-breed Dark Lord of the Sith with very rare, powerful ability and strength. He lived during the time of the first Sith Empire. Ragnos defeated Simus, who was beheaded in the battle with the other aspiring Dark Lord. He lived for more than a hundred years, growing in power. He died shortly before the Great Hyperspace War and lived on as a Force ghost after his death. Ragnos would go down in history for more than just his own standing as a great, strong Dark Lord. However, he would also be known for inspiring the Sith with respect, and also for…

Aparently BioWare have more Nerfs up there sleeves. Comming with game update 5.2 Bioware will be nerfing the CXP gain from KOTFE Chapter 1 and 2. Check it out:   Why did you nerf Fractured Uprising CxP? | 03.08.2017, 10:27 AM Hey folks, I talked with the team to get the scope of what Mission rewards are changing with 5.2.

The Deleted Revan Scene from The Clone Wars

Darth Revan speaks with The Son of Mortis in this deleted scene from The Clone Wars. Chances are, you’ve heard of this epic deleted scene from The Clone Wars Season 3: Ghosts of Mortis but you might not know what it’s all about. There is a lot of chatter over this scene because it basically shows us how Darth Revan was almost canon. Is the cut scene still considered canon within Star Wars story? We’ll explore that a bit after but if you have yet to see the scene, watch the video below. See the delete scene for yourself here: So now that you’ve seen it, what is it all about? Here is this scene, we see that the Son has been influenced by two dark entities. They want him to control “The Chosen One”, Anakin Skywalker and bring the world into Darkness. So why did the scene get deleted?…
