SWTOR Season 5 Gold Tier Reward Granted

Posted by on Aug 18, 2015 in forum post, mounts, pvp | 0 comments

  All Players who reached Season 5 Gold Tier in Star Wars; The old Republic, will get another Nexu mount as compensation. Season 5 Gold Tier Reward Granted | 08.18.2015, 04:32 PM Hey folks! As we mentioned before, with Patch 3.3.1 the plan was to issue each Season 5 Gold tier PvPer a new reward which would be exclusive to only them and would be a bit of a make-good for the issues that occurred in granting the reward previously. We wanted to make sure to give you something which is comparable to your previous Gold tier reward but still something special. So when maintenance is over today Season 5 Gold Tier characters should have a different and new Nexu mount in their mailbox. This Nexu shares the same model as the Gold tier mount but with a new, traditional colorization pattern. If you were a Gold tier participant in Season 5, check your mailbox and Giradda’s Special Pet Nexu will be waiting there for you! If you have transferred or renamed your character since Season 5 you might not have received your mount. Please contact Customer Service and they will work with us to investigate and make sure everyone who earned the mount receives it. Thank you all for your patience, jump in and enjoy Season 6....

Update on SWTOR Season 5 PvP Nexu

Posted by on Jul 31, 2015 in Eric Musco, mounts, pvp | 0 comments

Players who accidentally received the Season 5 Nexu will be able to keep them. BioWare Bioware is planning to add something exclusive for gold tier in patch 3.3.1. though. Check it out: The Season 5 Nexu | 07.31.2015, 03:10 PM Hey folks, Good news! We have granted Nexu to all of the remaining Gold tier characters who had not yet received it. If you were missing the Nexu, we isolated the issue to characters who had transferred or changed their names during the course of the season. I know there are questions about what will happen now, so here’s our current plans: Mistakenly Granted Nexu – Anyone who was granted a Nexu, will be allowed to keep it. This was our error and we are not inclined to take it away from everyone. Gold Tier Exclusive Reward – We know letting those extra players keep the Nexu, it takes away the exclusivity for our Gold tier PvPers. So, we want to fix that situation and the plan is with Game Update 3.3.1 all Gold tier PvPers will be receiving an exclusive item. No specifics are available at this time and we’ll announce it the day we release the patch. Thank you all for your patience as we worked through getting this resolved. We know this was frustrating so we have changed internal processes to help prevent this type of situation in the future. Thanks!...

SWTOR: Update on Win Trading from Season 5

Posted by on Jul 23, 2015 in Eric Musco, forum post, pvp | 0 comments

  Eric Musco  took on the forums to tell players about the actions BioWare have taken against win trading in the past PvP season. Check it out: Update on Win Trading from Season 5 | 07.23.2015, 06:07 PM Hey folks, With Season 5 recently ending, I thought I would give an update on what we have been doing to curb players who continue to win-trade. To recap from before, players who were caught win-trading were receiving actions ranging from a warning, up to having their character’s rating reset. Specifically, the character who we caught doing the win-trading itself. Depending on the character’s history, this can also include suspension time as well. Over the course of the last few Seasons, we have seen an overall decline in win-trading action, and we hope that you have seen that as well. However, in a handful of cases, there are players who continue to win-trade even after repeated warnings and having a characters rating reset. We believe that players such as these are using one character to win-trade, potentially boosting a friends character, and then playing more legitimately on their other characters. This way, they feel they are avoiding punishment on the characters they care about, while breaking our Terms of Service on other characters. In lieu of this, for those handful of players we have added another level of action to curb this behavior. If a player is found to have had repeated warnings, character rating resets, and still continues this action, we are resetting the Ranked PvP rating of every character on their account. This is along with any suspension time which can accompany a Terms of Service violation. This is all a part of our continued effort to keep Ranked PvP fair for all players. It has always been a minority of players participating in win-trading and we are happy to see that this has declined over time. We are seeing a similar decline in “trolls” as well, so keep reporting those players. Thanks everyone!...

The Combat Team wants your opinion on set bonuses in SWTOR

Posted by on Jul 14, 2015 in pvp, pvp gear | 0 comments

  The  combat team over at BioWare want’s for your opinion and feedback on current and previous set bonuses in Star Wars: The old Republic. You can let the game developers know by replying to the official thread over at the official forums. We would also love to hear you opinion in the comment section below. Check out the official announcement: The intent of these set bonuses is not not increase HPS/DSP/survivability by more than 5%. Note from the Combat team on this… Quote: Originally Posted by Zoom_VI Is there are particular reason why you guys are looking to change them? With Knights of the Fallen Empire being just around the corner, we just wanted to give you all a chance to let us know if there are any particular set bonuses that you dislike and give you an opportunity to suggest your ideas for improvement. We are not looking to make drastic changes to the set bonuses currently in game. In fact, if the players of a certain class’s role are happy with their current set bonuses, then we are happy to leave those set bonuses intact. Quote: Originally Posted by Zoom_VI By the way at the very least can you make sure that setbonus procs don’t share the same icons in the future? Having the 2pc setbonus and the 6pc setbonus sharing proc icons, can get annoying fast, especially in PvP. This is excellent feedback (which is what we are hoping to read in these threads), and we will look into making the icons more varied and readable for you in the future.
