SWTOR as eSport – Can It Happen?

Posted by on Jan 22, 2015 in discussion, pvp | 0 comments

  So this is not the first time this question has been proposed but we want to open it up for a bit of discussion here. Could SWTOR make it as an eSport? With the growing popularity and demand on esports, it doesn’t seem far-fetched to think about other games getting into the scene. But is SWTOR a good choice? What aspects of SWTOR could be made into an eSport? We’d clearly be looking at PvP options, right? There is a sect of players who love SWTOR solely for the PvP side, despite this not being what the game is specifically made for and branded to. There will always be players who love PvP and want to get specifically into that style of play. So with that in mind, let’s take a look at what might work for SWTOR in an eSports environment. SWTOR PvP tournaments played out on Twitch? This is something I think fans would watch. If SWTOR wants to pursue the eSport arena, they definitely would need to focus their PvP options in a more organized way. I believe there would be players...

SWTOR Ranked PVP Seasons in 2015

Posted by on Jan 15, 2015 in pvp, Ranked Warzones | 0 comments

  Alex Modny Updated the community on SWTOR PVP season 4 and Season 5 which will happen in 2015. Players can expect Season 4 to launch with game update 3.1 in a month. Check out the full announcement below:   Ranked Seasons in 2015 | 01.15.2015, 11:31 AM Hello PvPers!Season 4 is planned to last roughly 3 months, starting with Game Update 3.1 and ending with Game Update 3.2. As of right now, Game Update 3.1 is planned to go live in about a month (and is already on PTS, so please check it out!). However, as always, this is subject to change. After the end of Season 4, we would normally have a Pre-Season lasting a few weeks to a few months. However, for Season 5 there will be no Pre-Season – we will go straight from Season 4 to Season 5. We decided to nix the Pre-Season because there will not be a gear tier update for PvP in Game Update 3.2, which negates the main reason we had Pre-Seasons in the past (Allowing as many players as possible to gear up during that time). This...

An Update on The Furious Title

Posted by on Dec 15, 2014 in pvp, Title | 0 comments

Due to complaints on the official forums, BioWare will be changing the Furious PvP title from Season 3 ranked PvP to Fairly Furious Read the full update here or below: Hey folks! I wanted to tell you about a change coming to one of your titles, the Furious. As many of you pointed out, this title already existed in game prior to the end of Season 3 rewards. We really apologize for this happening, it was an unfortunate oversight on our part that it got through and we want to correct that oversight. As of 3.0.2 anyone who currently has The Furious from Season 3 will have it replaced by Fairly Furious. If you still want to have The Furious title, you can just jump on over to Makeb and defeat the Golden fury to earn it. Now, one thing we also know with Season 3, is that some of you weren’t the biggest fans of the titles. We are always looking to improve our PvP rewards, and titles are no different. So although we are only changing The Furious title, we know you would like to see...

When Will SWTOR See New PvP Content?

Posted by on Oct 9, 2014 in Eric Musco, pvp, Shadow of Revan | 0 comments

We have heard a lot of talk about SWTOR and the new content coming out recently. Fans are hyped up about all the good stuff coming with 3.0 but one player on the forums asked something that I was also thinking: Can we expect to see any PvP content or news any time soon. While SWTOR isn’t marketed as a PvP game, it does still have those elements to it and some players really like it so it would be great to see Bioware do a little more in this area to keep things fun and interesting. Community Manager Eric Musco had this to say in response on the forums: Hey Jaiyne, Good question, let me take a stab at this one. If you are asking specifically for news about new content, such as a Warzone or Arena map, then the answers is unfortunately no. There are no new maps, specific to PvP coming in the expansion. However, if you are asking about changes coming to PvP then the answer is a resounding yes. Disciplines by itself will entirely change the landscape of Classes in PvP in 3.0 and...
