Gotta protect that shoulder.
Happy birthday SWTOR!

It has been six years since BioWare’s MMORPG launched, and that means plenty of presents for everyone. In addition to previous year’s rewards, players can log into the game to pick up a Valkorian statue (never sick of looking at that guy) and special flair. The Coruscant and Dromund Kaas strongholds are also significantly discounted during this anniversary event, costing only six credits apiece.

Game Update 5.6.1 also went out today, bringing a brand-new Yavin 4 warzone to the game. Additionally, players will see a significant increase in the command XP rewards they get from planetary heroics and daily missions.

Finally, SWTOR is hosting a “double rewards” event from now through January 1st, doubling experience points, CXP, and more.

The SWTOR devs do seem to love their PvP. It doesn’t do a lot for me as a player, unfortunately.

It seems they always have double XP and increased XP on everything. Last time I played a few months ago you already earn XP way too fast to level properly. Since it’s a game mostly about story (for most anyway) having people race through it without finishing quests seems stupid.

Character XP is about the last thing I want from this game. Its only good for the newbies wanting endgame asap (so I can see Bioware wanting this, as its a subscription endgame), or complete altaholics (so to be fair SWTOR is altaholic dream).

Tempting to jump back in, but then I need a sub because the free mode is a joke and then I am paying $15 USD a month for 250ms ping…

When I can play a free to play game such as World of Warships with a 100ms ping haha

And that’s meant to be a present?!

I have seen more than I care about that dysfunctional family already… at most I can place it outside the yavin temple for orbital bombardment target practice…

PSA – For anyone who wants to remain spoiler-free for the Last Jedi, log in with caution until you’re able to see the movie. Stay far, far away from general chat… lots of porgs making mischief.

Does Luke say “I’m your father” and then Rey says, “Noooooo (I just met you)” and then Luke uses the lightaber Rey just gave him to chop her hand off? That would be epic.

You’re so last millenium. No, not falcon…

It’s, like, the current year… Luke will say “I am your mother” and Rey will tweet him back #NotMyFather on the holonet and join a trandoshan’s hippies commune on Dagobah

Rey is Sith Lord. How close am I?
