Hyperspace Beacon: A three-step guide to conquering SWTOR’s Nightlife event

Last week, Star Wars: The Old Republic brought back the Nightlife event on Nar Shaddaa. In a nutshell, it’s a gambling event. After all, Nar Shaddaa is an underworld haven, and if mob movies have taught us anything, it’s gambling and casinos go hand-in-hand with the underworld.

The sad thing is that I kind of like this event. It’s not because of the activity of the event; that part is the most boring thing to watch because you’re literally just clicking on terminals. And it can’t be because of the cost; a player can literally go through millions of credits in just a few hours.

It’s because of the prizes. They really are some of the coolest things that you can get without having to touch the cash shop in any way.

I was watching Sechari from the Passionately Casual Podcast hang out with his Twitch chatroom as he was playing through the Nightlife event when I realized that it’s possible that not many people know how to maximize their credits for this event. I’m going to give you the same advice I gave Sechari, in three easy steps.

Crowfall illuminates racial bonuses and abilities in Q&A

There’s no doubt that a lot has been happening recently with Crowfall’s class and race structure, particularly following following May’s announcement that the team is separating race-bound classes to allow players more mix-and-match freedom. There were bound to be one or two questions concerning all of this, which is why the team fielded an hour-long Q&A session yesterday on Twitch.

One of the interesting reveals that came out of the chat is that each of the races will receive their own racial discipline with various bonuses. For example, humans are more versatile stat-wise and can use a side-step dodge move, while Wood Elves are trailmasters who can camouflage themselves while standing still.

The team also talked about cartography (which includes the interesting feature of being able to pickpocket other players’ maps), how it’s working to beef up healers, and what’s going on with Clerics (they’re coming soonish).

We’ve got the full Q&A session for you after the jump, and as an added bonus, we also tossed in a video with the team discussing what’s going on with the Alpha 5 build.

Blizzard partners with Twitch for tourney coverage, gives away free Overwatch loot boxes

Two of gaming’s forces are partnering up, at least for the next year or so, and players might come out on top of the whole deal. Twitch announced that it has signed a deal to be “the exclusive third-party streaming platform for more than 20 Blizzard tournaments.” In return, Blizzard is going to be giving out some goodies through the platform and probably using the word “Twitch” in every fifth sentence of press releases.

To start things off on a good foot, Overwatch players who have access to Twitch Prime can enjoy a free golden loot box that contains a guaranteed legendary item. You do have to own Overwatch to redeem this loot box (which should be obvious, but hey, there’s always that one guy who doesn’t get it).

Twitch said that this is just the beginning of the Blizzard parade: “Over the coming months, Twitch Prime members will receive 10 more loot boxes containing more in-game content. Similar promotions for Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone players are coming later this year.”

Source: Twitch #1, #2. Thanks to everyone who tipped this!

The Stream Team: Sizing up EverQuest II’s solo Proving Grounds

EverQuest II’s Proving Grounds proved to be pretty difficult (as well as littered with bugs!). Even finding a full group was pretty challenging!

Join us live at 8:00 p.m. as MJ takes on this challenge for the first time.

Today’s MechWarrior Online patch adds resistance heroes, tweaks sub privileges

MechWarrior Online is rolling out a big patch today with a whole lot of ‘Mechs to try out. The update includes new Inner Sphere Resistance Hero ‘Mechs, the 8v8 competitive mode and leaderboards, the revamped Incursion game mode for faction play, a “significant” energy weapon balance pass, sound and turret updates, and new loot. Plus,

“As of this patch, Premium Time is no longer required for accessing any aspect of the Private Lobby feature! Tonnage rules, Match Time, Time of Day, View Mode, and Full Team settings are now available to all.”

If you’re a dedicated ‘Mech pilot, you probably want to know the future of MechWarrior Online. Does that mean you want to find out about that future through an online town hall meeting on Friday, June 23rd? You don’t need to answer that, both because you’d be talking to the computer and because that’s what’s happening regardless. The meeting will be hosted on Twitch starting at 9 p.m. EDT and will be hosted by Russ Bullock and game designer Chris Lowrey. They’ll be talking about the upcoming Civil War technology, the skill tree, game balance, and some heretofore unannounced content. In the event that you’re not a dedicated ‘Mech pilot but more of an occasional one, you’ll have to decide whether the prospect of this new information is worth taking up your Friday evening.

We’ve included the preview videos for all the new mechs down below!
