SWTOR Announcing End Season 5 Gladiatorial Rewards

Posted by on Jun 23, 2015 in pvp | 0 comments

BioWare has just announced the season 5 pvp rewards and what ratings are required. I didn’t know how much I wanted the title Maximum Decimator until now: Greetings PvPers! The finale of Season 5 is fast approaching so we hope you are on top of things! The end of Season 5 will come with Game Update 3.3 and your Highest-earned rating, when the servers come down for the update, will determine which tier you are in and what rewards you receive. The higher your tier the more glorious your rewards! Just like in previous seasons, the Highest Earned rating that determines the tier you are in – not Current – so no need to feel like you are risking Rating by going after the next tier up! To see your Highest Earned Rating, check the Warzone Rating and Stats page in the Warzone Queue GUI. Please note that the Rating displayed on the Leaderboards are the Current Ratings, not Highest Earned. Once Season 5 has come to an end and all Ratings have been reset, the Season 5 Leaderboards will be...

PvP Economy and Ranked Rewards Restructure for Game Update 3.3

Posted by on Jun 1, 2015 in Arena, pvp, Ranked Warzones | 0 comments

The SWTOR Combat Team published a new blog post today about the upcoming PvP Economy and Ranked Rewards change for patch 3.3: 06.01.2015 PvP Economy and Ranked Rewards Restructure for Game Update 3.3 Hello PvPers! As some of you may have heard on the Bad Feeling Podcast, we are making a few changes to Warzones and Ranked Warzone Arenas. Alex covered several of these changes in the interview but for clarity, and as an official jumping-off point for discussion, we wanted to go over the changes and the reasoning behind them here. Please feel free to join us in the discussion thread linked below. Let’s get started! PvP Gear Cost We think that getting a full set of PvP gear is too much of a grind. This is so much the case that only about 2% of PvP players have a full Dark Reaver set. Having at least Exhumed gear is a barrier to entry to being successful in PvP for the majority of players, so we looked to reduce the time and cost of getting there. We have reduced the entry PvP gear costs...

Upcoming PvP Changes comming to SWTOR

Posted by on May 29, 2015 in podcast, pvp | 0 comments

The bad feeling podcast had the chance to sit down with Alex Modny and discuss PCP changes comming with game update 3.3 I encourage you to listen to the podcast, as it includes more stuff then in the notes below.  There are some discussions on how new warzone maps get designed from start to finish for example. Podcast link to listen (1hr long) Notes are taken from Emeraldon on reddit: General Alex Modny (Systems Designer) and Eric Musco are present from Bioware Most of these changes will be coming with Game Update 3.3. No new PvP maps coming anytime soon. GSF is not dead, they might be doing some balance changes in the future but no plans for new game modes or new maps. They are changing AoE in warzones – they can no longer interrupt captures. No more force storms, Death from Above, Death Field etc. AoE CC still work to interrupt captures. This change is subjected to testing on PTS and if players don’t like it they will remove it. PvP Gearing Reduction in PVP set gear costs: Exhumed...

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...
