Will SWTOR have a Easter event this year lol? Do they have things in the Cartel shop you can buy like Easter themed ligh sabers? Or a land speeder with reskinned egg lights?

I hope not. That kind of stuff looks so out of place in MMOs.

I camped in a cantina on Alderan last night and the bartender had a holiday 'Easter-themed' drink and egg for sale. This was the extent of the Easter celebration that I saw.

Personally I don't think anyone should get to be a Jedi until they can prove that they can slaughter mobs for hundreds of hours all while evading Bounty Hunters.

Of course I realised it was an April fools joke that's why i posted a link , i didn't include spoilers. BadRobot ? I was originally a cast and not a bad one either , I don't like being called a robot  , it's insulting. I'm getting a few new names I prefer the one below my sig though :[]

Bad Robot was a JJ Abrams nod Bad Orb. I didn't think you were really April's Fooled.

While real world events don't mesh well with immersive games, it does keep developers on their feet to force them to keep coming out with events.  Time happens, and they can't stop time.

 

There should be some kind of events though, and rejecting the prospect just leads to more blandness in an already content starved game.  An event doesn't have to have easter bunnies running around, and hidden eggs to collect, but maybe a hostile thread being exposed with invasions .. something .. anything ...

 

A creative world such as Star Wars could surely host some pretty cool ideas.

Let's Dance!!!!!!!


Game Update 2.1: Dance of the Hutts is coming in late April, allowing players to experience brand new in-game content, including a new PvP area and a new mount!

  • The Hutt Cartel has realized that absolute power stems from knowledge in the dancing arts. They have put out a galactic imperative to find the best dancer and promote them to majesty. In the PvP area, Toborro’s Shakedown, players must use new dance combat skills to face off against other players for unique rewards!
  • Players who master the PvP area, Toborro’s Shakedown, will earn specialized Reputation points to purchase a new mount, the Huttese Transporter. The Huttese Transporter takes a 5% tax of all Cartel Coin purchases to ensure it’s always satisfied. But don’t worry – if players talk or flirt with the Huttese Transporter, it will give them a Cartel Coin tax break!

Just saw this on The Repopulation April 1st Patch notes...

Added anti-decay skill which removes the need to repair weapons or armor, this will most likely be a cash shop item.

OK... PLEASE.... can SWTOR have it?  I'll pay for it !!!!!!!!

LOL. Interesting how both games put in jokes that are the anti-thesis of their design.

They did have some Easter Events, just really low key. The cantina, and Easter Bunnis handing out eggs.

You can't say they didn't have a full event because they don't recognize non-Star Wars holidays then have some Easter events.
