Star Wars: The Old Republic is having a double experience weekend after Star Wars: The Force Awakens

THe first rule of fight club is that you shouldn't be in a club to fight people, that's mean.
Let’s not mince words: We all know that a new film set in a galaxy far, far away is coming out in the very near future, and people are going to either adore it or despise it once they’ve gone to see it. It’s the sort of thing that Star Wars: The Old Republic sort of has to respond to, what with the setting and franchise and all of that. So, enjoy a double experience weekend!

Also people shouting spoilers left and right, because of course that is going to happen.

That’s not the only event running this weekend, of course; there’s also the ongoing Life Day celebration and the Rakghoul plague on Tatooine, neither of which have anything to do with the story of the film. (Presumably.) So you needn’t watch the film and then find yourself sitting around wishing that there was some sort of electronic diversion to play. You can go level! There will indeed be stars and wars therein.

Reading is fundamental!

From the SWTOR website:
DOUBLE XP EVENT
(DECEMBER 18, 2015 – JANUARY 1, 2016: BEGINS AND ENDS AT 4AM PST/12AM GMT)

LEVEL: All levels!
From story missions to PvP Warzones, advance at double the speed! Level
even faster with XP Boosts, available in the Cartel Market. Level 60
players can also earn double Legacy XP – so jump in now!

Not sure how you got ‘weekend’ out of that?

camelotcrusade Agreed, my immediate reaction on reading this was that I’d play something else this weekend. I really don’t want to advance any quicker than I am already.

McSleaz Not to mention they forgot to even acknowledge the rackghoul event is broken, even if it was supposed to be live a few days ago. SWTOR has become such a shameful business, it’s sad to associate it with anything StarWars related.

Greaterdivinity purewitz I like like to keep up on all 8 of my characters, I have one for each class. I know people who have more than 8 and I think they are crazy. :D  So far I’ve done Smuggler, Bounty Hunter, Jedi Knight, Jedi Consular, and I’m currently working on Trooper. And all the while I was also working on Alert Missions, Star Fortresses, and Alliance Specialists on my main, which is my Smuggler. I do everything on my Smuggler, but the rest I just do story.

Karl_Hungus do you ever say anything positive about any MMO? >_>

Karl_Hungus … if you have ever been on the NY subway during a full moon you know it’s far more entertaining then driving a Porsche.

That’s nice, but you level so fast already it’s kind of a no-prize, imo.  Tie-in items on an in-game vendor would be more fun.  The fleet needs a million ball droids eating up my RAM.

Cavadus Rakghoul puts me to sleep, every time they release it.
If they did the Gree half as much as they did this and Bounty Week, I’d be happy.
