    Bioware has posted a series of forum threads for specific classes in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

  • Cancelled: ESL Operation Victory Competition

    The ESL Operation Victory competition has been cancelled according to a new post on the Star Wars: The Old Republic site. The contest was designed for teams of players to race through operations in an effort to submit the best time to Bioware. However, issues cropped up in the Coratanni encounter that produced issues for those attempting to move through quickly. While tomorrow's patch will address some of the issues, the team felt that others remained.

  • The Outfit Designer Won't Save Crafting

    In the recent Producer's Roadmap, Bruce Maclean dropped the news we'd known about for awhile, Star Wars: the Old Republic would have some kind of Outfit Designer. Coming in the spring with Game Update 3.2, it's supposed to be an 'awesome new feature'. Let's speculate as to how this new feature will work and how it will integrate with the existing crafting system.

  • Does It Actually Matter if SWTOR is Canon or Not?

    Like the rest of the EU, Star Wars: the Old Republic was slapped with a 'Legends' imprint and sent on its merry way, and quite rightly the fans worried that it meant doom for the BioWare Austin MMO. Almost a year later, SWTOR's status has become an increasing question of debate as the new movies approach and the announcement that there will be a Cantina Tour stop at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim, CA.

  • The Roadmap Through 2015

    Star Wars: The Old Republic Producer Bruce Maclean has posted a brand new blog article that lays out the roadmap for 2015. The letter reminds players of the four pillars that SWTOR launched with: combat, exploration, progression and story. As previously announced, 2015 will be focused primarily on bringing more story to players, a process that began with December 2014's Shadow of Revan expansion.

  • Ravager Exploit Sanctions Explained

    As part of the transparency between players and developers, the BioWare team has revealed the process and reasoning behind recent bans of Star Wars: The Old Republic players for participating in the so-called "Ravager Exploit". The exploit was discovered late last year and allowed players to skip the final boss of The Ravagers and gain access to high-end loot and rare crafting materials.

  • Cantina Tour at PAX South: A New Hope

    This past weekend, several members of BioWare Austin descended upon San Antonio for PAX South in the latest Star Wars: The Old Republic Cantina Tour stop. In it, guests were treated to the usual Q&A interspersed with prizes for correctly answering trivia questions. Unusually, the event was actually held on-site at PAX and required a badge although it wasn't a part of official programming.

  • A Return to Story for 2015

    During this weekend's Star Wars: The Old Republic Cantina event being held at PAX South, Bioware distributed a letter penned by Bruce MacLean. In it, MacLean lays out more details about the team's plans for 2015, including a return to story and each character's personal journey throughout the game. The letter has yet to be officially published, but several sites have copies on hand and have shared the information contained within.

  • But Everyone Else Was Doing It Too!

    This week, Star Wars: the Old Republic put in a patch that had a fairly large number of tweaks to the game, mostly a lot of bugfixes and updates to various group activities such as changing which comms drop and rebalancing certain encounters. Sadly, however, much of these things were not the topic of many conversations about the game the past few weeks.

  • Three Things We Want from SWTOR in 2015

    Star Wars: The Old Republic may never live up to the lofty expectations many had for it before it launched back in 2011, but the game seems pretty healthy despite all the initial setbacks. 2015 is a new year and with a new year comes new possibilities. Let's take a look at some things we'd like to see in SWTOR this year.

  • Was Forged Alliances Really Necessary?

    In their prelude to their current expansion, Shadow of Revan, Star Wars: the Old Republic spent five months giving us new big-picture epic content via four Flashpoints collectively known as Forged Alliances. I spent an afternoon playing all four of them back to back on solo mode now that it's possible to do so and have been left with some questions that remind me of another big-name scifi franchise's first movie: Is this all that there was? Was there nothing more?

  • Shadow of Revan - Final Thoughts

    On December 2nd, early purchasers of the Shadow of Revan expansion were granted access to two things: the new content that was being added for the $20 purchase of the expansion pack, and the new skills and streamlined combat systems. For people who have played SWTOR in the past and are just curious about the new discipline system, I'd recommend just logging in and trying it for yourself.

  • Shadow of Revan RIP #2 - New Planets

    Introducing new environments to explore is a staple of MMORPG expansion packs, and Shadow of Revan does not disappoint. After the prologue missions, the new content kicks off on the relatively obscure planet of Rishi, home to some interesting looking bird folk and a whole lot of pirate business. Bioware reached way back and dipped into the classic trilogy for the second planet (or rather moon), Yavin 4, recognizable to fans as the home base to the Rebellion in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope.

  • Shadow of Revan Review In Progress #1

    Since the first official announcement of Star Wars: the Old Republic, BioWare Austin has not been shy about letting its audience know that story is one of the main pillars that they felt was missing from the MMORPG space. A bulk of their effort developing the game went into creating a richly-told, voice acted story that would ease the pain of the traditional level grind.

  • The Value of 12X Class XP

    With the launch of early access for Shadow of Revan on Tuesday, Star Wars: the Old Republic retired a subscriber perk that had allowed hordes of filthy casuals like myself to finally get through each class story and have a character at the now-previous level cap. Today's article is about that perk and whether it ultimately had value to the game.
