The Star Wars: The Old Republic site has been updated with a new blog to outline the just-announced "Guild Rewards Program". The initial 'buff' will see players gain 5% Guild XP while playing as a guild member.

Are you ready to earn valuable rewards for joining a guild? We’ve got great news! We’re excited to launch a new Guild Rewards Program which rewards player participation in guilds with in-game bonuses and benefits.

MMORPGs are no longer about the mass multi-user anymore *sadly*

4/10/13 1:03:19 PM#2
Yet an other way to advertise something that's not really there *sigh* The only 'actual reward' that's there for joining a guild is the 5% XP bonus. As if you're not leveling too fast already in SWTOR... It would have been more interesting if there would be a gear/mount/buff reward for being in a guild, much like WoW does.

This game needs to do something like Final Fantasy Reborn.

There is so much wrong and linear with this game that it's not even funny.

 

A re-launch, after they have added in all the social content, e.g., gigantic and empty planets used for world pvp and housing / forts, cantinas with incentives to use them, deeper crafting, will do 'em well.

Really? This whole page is just saying "+5% xp while in guilds". Sure, they said "more is coming" but does anyone really care about that? Its like saying tommorrow you will eat lunch. No one really cares unless you know whats for lunch. The statement that more is coming is just as unnecessary as this whole article just to get press for the game. 

And if you believe that they can actually afford to do a "realm reborn" type reboot you are crazy. The game is making money atleast on some level since they are making content. If they rebooted the whole game and shut it down for 6 months they would lose FAR more then they would gain. What FF14 is doing has not actually been proven to work either. They are putting all their eggs in one basket and basically gambling the company on FF14 Reborn.

How do these people keep announcing the most miniscule content updates as if they are earth shattering, mind blowingly amazing features that haven't been industry standard for 5 years or more? This game is hopeless.

I have to say that’s how I feel too, all the SWTOR additions seem to be built up massively by EA/Bioware and most features added to this point have been MMO staples for years now. Still news I guess although nothing I've seen including the latest DLC makes me want to try the game out again.

You know full well considering how large and ambitious MMO's are that having EVERY feature that are in present mmos is near impossible to achieve by launch date. MMO's, even wow, added those fluff features over a LONG period time.

No reason to complain about 5% boost to XP for guildies... it encourages people to get social and join guilds... already you can see in general chat that it's working.

I hope they will introduce some cool rewards, achievements etc later on.

I believe incentive to join a guild and be social in an MMO is always a good thing. However the way they announce triviality is so inane I justg can't be bothered to care. I don't play SWTOR anymore but I still received an email announcing exciting new guild features, to which directed me to a page which said 5% more experience!!

 

Couldn't they have just said 'in' the email they sent me, it hardly seems worth my time if I am honest. Is there a real guild issue going on in SWTOR at the moment? Is there a  large populace of the game wandering around guildless? 

 

I understand why SWTOR does things like this, get people in guilds and make them social then they are less likely to leave, or will spend more time on the game to potentially drop some money on it. I just hate the way they go about this stuff.

The problem is that these days you need to either launch a game that is markedly different from the competition with fewer features and hope the "idea" catches on or launch a similar game with close to all the expected features to even think about competing.

I love the leveling speed of F2P, it's kinda slow and painful.. the 5% buff comes in handy.

Being a subscriber actually makes people "finish" the game faster and unsub/go F2P

I went ahead and reinstalled the game to have a look and see how the population is doing.

I log in and first thing I noticed is that I can no longer hide my helmet (even with preffered status) and that I had to pay 350 (750 even for account wide) cartel coins to UNLOCK a very basic UI feature as something like hiding your helmet!

Are they friggin' serious???

I knew their F2P model is a joke and the worst in the industry, but didn't thought it was THAT extremely bad. But it really is.

I have never uninstalled a game as quickly again as with this one.

As this game, and above all, this company is just beyond any rescue!

I don't like x, because y is ticking me off, why can't I get abcd free for no reason whatsoever *Insert rant here* .~ Haters

 

On a more serious note, if you cannot afford a sub-based Mmo, you probably shouldn't be playing mmo's and focussing on your career :0

I have a very good paying job and can easily pay for a sub based MMO.

I just haven't played SW:TOR for a long time and wanted to reinstall and login to check it out.

I find it just absolutely silly that they charge "real" money for such silly things like UI options!

I mean... paying 350 cartel points to hide a headslot per character?

Come on. Even for a F2P game that's just silly. You have to agree on that.

I have never seen a F2P game (even the run of the mill asian ones) start greying out basic UI features and charge money for it! Other then inventory space.

Sorry, but those kind of things are just an instant turn off and says everything about the company and how they try to nicle and dime the playerbase to new extremes!

Has nothing to do with not willing to pay a sub or not.

don't bother answering to ignorants, you can help a blind person to see but a person who decided to not look can't see no matter how many time you point them at right direction.

i want an open world, no phasing, no instancing.i want meaningful owpvp.i want player driven economy.i want meaningful crafting.i want awesome exploration, a sense of thrill.i want ow housing with a meaningful effect on my entire gameplay experience, not just some instanced crap.i want all of these free of cost, i don't wanna pay you a cent, game devs can eat grass and continue developing game for me.
Seems like that is the current consensus of western mmo players.

You're right, an update like ramping xp a whole 5% must have taken months of work for this talented team.
