SWTOR: “The Hot Prospect” is no longer a Hot Prospect…

Due to an Outrage through the SWTOR community, BioWare is renaming “The Hot Prospect” server to “Satele Shan”. So I guess we can start calling her the “Hot Prospect” Hey folks, We have made the decision to rename The Hot Prospect server to Satele Shan. Since we announced the new server names, we have received some concerns from people regarding the name The Hot Prospect. Specifically, that phrase could be taken in slang terms to be derogatory towards certain individuals. We take this very seriously as we would never want to create a situation where someone is made uncomfortable by something such as a server name. We will be updating all of our communications (such as the FAQ and blog) to reflect the new name in the coming days. Thank you for your understanding. -eric Join the forum discussion on this post

SWTOR Roadmap – The Autumn Update!

SWTOR Game producer Keith Kanneg, just inform the community, that BioWare will be releasing the Autumn update of the roadmap before the NYC Cantina in next month: Hey everyone, I have seen quite a few questions about the status of the Roadmap, both in timing and in content. I know this is more of an announcement of an announcement, but the plan is to deliver the updated version before our October 6th SWTOR Cantina in New York. I also realize I’ve been more quiet this past month, but we’ve been hard at work making sure we avoid the issues we had last month with Game Update 5.4. As a result, we pushed back the release date of Game Update 5.5 to October 10, 2017, and as you’ll find out, we have lots of activity happening every couple weeks. In the Roadmap, I will provide you with exactly what we’re doing through…

SWTOR Game Update 5.5 planned for October 10

Eric Musco just informed the official Star Wars: The old Republic Community that SWTOR Game Update 5.5 will go live  on October 10 with some content shuffled into Game Update 5.6. Any update in the Roadmap? What about 5.5? | 09.13.2017, 05:07 PM Provide you with updates, I can! The roadmap is still in progress. We have been shuffling some things around with respect to 5.5 and 5.6 and we need that to settle before we can let you know exactly what is coming and when. It was our plan to put out Game Update 5.5 in late September but we have made the decision to move it into early October (currently 10/10). We did this to allow us more time to focus in on quality for our Game Updates to avoid some of the issues we had with 5.4. Class balance is still planned for 5.5. I expect I will start putting…

CXP and Daily Areas in SWTOR throughout September

Double CXP  will return to SWTOR with patch 5.5 and allowing the daily area CXP to stay until 5.5 as well. Check it out: CXP and Daily Areas throughout September | 09.07.2017, 10:22 PM Hey all, Recently, we have had more maintenances than normal. This was compounded by our update issues last Thursday which led to over 10 hours of maintenance. Thursday’s issue along with the extra downtime have impacted all of our playtime, and they especially are bothersome when you consider how much XP and CXP you lost from the Double XP/CXP event was running along with the over the top CXP for Daily Areas. So, to make sure your characters can take advantage from both, here’s what we going to do:  Since the Double XP/CXP event ended on Tuesday, we’ve decided to bring it back earlier than planned. That is, we had scheduled to make it available in December around…

Is SWTOR Dead?!

We’ve been publishing on this site for years before SWTOR launched. We were so excited about the game. No one was as pumped as we were. We brought you every rumor, every insider tip, and every breaking news story as soon as we heard about it. Since then, we’ve seen a lot of ups and downs with SWTOR. As you will see, we’re writing about other games here as well, but SWTOR will always be the game that it was all founded upon. So with that in mind, we’ve seen this topic brought up time and time again. Is SWTOR dead or dying? Is anyone still playing? If you were someone who played in the beginning and you’re looking to come back now, is it worth it? Is there anyone still playing or anything to come back to? First, we’re going to give our answer: yes. Yes, there is still…
