SWTOR Chapter 11: Disavowed is here, and Aric Jorgan has returned

    
15

Players’ companion rosters in Star Wars: The Old Republic will be getting one stronger tomorrow, as Trooper companion Aric Jorgan joins the alliance for Chapter 11: Disavowed. Apparently you can tag along as Jorgan and his friends go on an infiltration behind enemy lines. Of course, if the Zakuul Empire has taken over the galaxy, isn’t everywhere technically behind enemy lines?

Semantics aside, the patch notes are up for this major monthly update. Subscribers as of March 1st are already welcome to try out the patch, while anyone who subbed after that date will need to wait until tomorrow for the new story.

The patch also reactivates both the Relics of the Gree and Bounty Contract Week events. It’s truly great to hear that Jenny Craig has expanded into a galaxy far, far away: “Blizz went on a crash diet and lost all of his Life Day weight, and is now at his correct size.”

Deadborder Actually, you are not quite accurate. It last about a half hour.

I subbed back up for a month to check it out after being away awhile but I have something like 5 million credits missing

Let me guess what the chapter’s about.

The chapter lasts an hour of gameplay. You go down some long, linear hallways fighting mobs. Then you have a custscene. Then you have another long, linear hallway where you fight mobs. Then you have another cutscene. Then maybe a third long linear hallway full of mobs and a third cutscene. Then you’ll be presented with a choice that amounts to “You can join us”, “I don’t like you but you can join us” and “You’re a murdering backstabbing scum-sucking mollusk, but you can join us anyway”

Then we wait for next month’s hour of gameplay.

Did Bioware give Aric his clothes back or they still out at the cleaners?

TheDonDude Right, if you are into raiding, the raiders are still going at it.  My two guild have raid nights, like usual.  They are enjoying introducing new players.

mrnastybutler I think you would have fun purchasing one month once the arenas drop or even after the new Warzone hits.

*checks the calendar* August yet?  No?  Okay, just waiting for August when I can play all the chapters in one shot for 15 bucks.

You know something… I enjoyed my 3 months leading up too TFA  being back in SWTOR and the excitement of KOTFE.

Now? Long past caring anything to do with Star Wars The Old Republic MMO, its the same old, tricks. Sick of it!

The thing is… this was always the content that Bioware planned for this month.

Yes, the Eternal Championship was delayed again. But that was due last month. Had it been delivered last month, this month would have been… well THIS. (Except perhaps, if BW pushed something from this month to make room for the Eternal Championship and couldn’t add it back in at the last moment).

I’ll be honest, my biggest worry was the original Developer Livestream when they said Chapter IX was still work in progress. I’d honestly expected them to have built up a bit of a “head’s start” with the monthly chapters, given there hadn’t been a big body of work since the release of KotFE in October/November. The fact that Chapter IX still wasn’t finished by then made me realise just how little wiggle room Bioware has left themselves with this monthly cadence. Either they do everything right first time, every time. Or a cascade of delays (that we’re already seeing) will start. Their only saving grace is that they haven’t announced what is in future Chapters – they can trim things out to play catch up – since nobody will miss things that they didn’t already know about.
I agree with other sentiments here, that I’m seeing more and more people just stop actively playing. I stopped a while ago, but I still track a couple of my guild’s website and log in infrequently as a preferred played. It’s not pleasant reading.
