Star Wars: The Old Republic doubles your rewards with its latest patch

The latest patch for Star Wars: The Old Republic is doubling your rewards. Your experience? Doubled. Command XP? Also doubled. Other things? Doubled. Incoming damage? Probably not doubled, because that’s not a reward, that’s an impediment to a reward. But the ongoing events of the game are also doubled, as the patch turns on the Nar Shadda Nightlife event as well. So you still get more doubling. Double everything.

And it can continue. For example, guess how many fixes were added for The Nathema Conspiracy? Double that number, there are a lot of fixes. (If you guessed the right amount initially, please halve that number, then double it. We have a theme going.) It all coincides nicely with the latest movie to hit the screen, so enjoy some extra rewards, have fun in Nar Shadda, and have fun repeating the word “double” until it loses all meaning.

I’d like a hardcore weekend in SWTOR where incoming damage is doubled, tbh.

I miss when RPG games were harder. It made you think how to go about something, now you just plow through everything and it’s so boring. Too hard also got boring in its own way – everything was really slow and even when you’re a high level you still have trouble with a couple of mobs, it really slows progress. I’m not sure anyone got it right.

It’s a fine line to design encounters to be challenging and rewarding without being frustrating or annoying.

Doubling the damage in SWTOR wouldn’t make the game that much harder, though, I hardly take damage while questing even when my companion is on dps. If it isn’t just busy work I tend to send them away completely.

Alright well, at least there were a couple decorations worth of my accumulated CM points, dancers and musicians have been missing from the marketplace since forever…

The glass may well be half empty but at least the cantina has entertainment now!

Doesn’t seem to be doubling anything at the moment.

Also seems that due to how it was written there is the misconception that the Nightlife event would have some new stuff inline with the Solo movie. This doesn’t seem to be the case, its the old stuff but there is some smuggler based stuff for cash purchase in the store which is new.

Just no new rewards for in game activities.

Just curious, what would be a good reason?

Hell, I’d take a species unlock at this stage! Though since we can only be hypothetical, how about a new advance class or 3? Game hasn’t done anything but re-balance classes for half a decade! Most other AAA MMO’s have released at least one new class in 5 years… all we get are re-balances… and they’re held up as a feature! I mean, how long does it take to balance a bunch of classes? If you can’t get it right after 7 years, just give up already!
Yup! salty AF tonight :-/

Edit, I admit i casually forgot Imperial Makeb, and SoR, both of which i admit are excellent! And I can forgive KOTFE, as I actually liked it initially but KOTET and everything since feels like a slap in the face!

Wake me up once there’s a new stronghold…or some furniture, I don’t even know.

I lowered my standards by a lot lately, didn’t I?

Reality has a way of pimp-slapping the best of us, at times.

Having said that, things are usually cyclical, so if you can survive long enough, good times comes rolling back around, to enjoy.
