Star Wars: The Old Republic’s War for Iokath dailies allow you to play both sides

If you’re angling to jump back into Star Wars: The Old Republic for GU 5.2 tomorrow, better take a look at BioWare’s latest developer livestream. Or better yet, Dulfy’s done the hard work of summarizing the stream for those of you who haven’t got 35 minutes to listen to two minutes of info!

We already knew that the patch would see the return of two old story companions as well as the introduction of an amped-up galaxy map, faction-switching, and the first new raid in a reeaaalllly long time. The new bits revolve around class changes (there won’t be any this patch), command XP (the boost will continue post 5.2 and enemies will again grant CXP), PvP (season 8 doesn’t have an end date just yet), and a new lockbox bundle. The new dailies hub is also worth noting; it’ll open up once you’ve blazed through the storyline and choose either side’s dailies to complete, regardless of your storyline choices, thereby grinding both reps.

The whole stream, plus the map video, are below.

I’d given up a long time ago that SWTOR would actually try to fix stuff, but they’re band-aids are increasingly ridiculous. You can change factions..in one zone…we’ll boost command xp…because no one likes the system…we’re trying to make single player game out of a massively multiplayer game instead of just making kotor 3…

Oh you.

Command XP (the boost will continue post 5.2 and enemies will again grant CXP)

So…the band-aids remain their longer term solution to this shit-tastic system? That continues to disappoint me, even if I’m no longer surprised at this point : /

I don’t think I have seen a company treat its paying long term playerbase (and it is paying since you basically can’t play SW:Tor without a sub) so shitty in a long while.

“Yeah, yeah, we here all that noise you are making for months! We are of course going to fix it!”

“Hey Tom, just adjust the system that everybody hates slightly. It still is shitty but those idiots will be so grateful that we turned a 100% shitty system into a 99% shitty system. Best thing, we can still make money like we originally intended and players may even thank us even though they had it so much better before! Ha, those idiots”.

I have quite honestly no idea how someone can really justify playing SW:Tor anymore. I understand it’s Star Wars and I almost never bash MMOs but what Bioware and EA have done in recent years with the game is nothing but slap after slap their customers faces.
