SWTOR tests the new Rishi Hideout and Battle Ring arena

Is there a new hope for entertainment in a galaxy far, far away? At the end of this month on July 31st, Star Wars: The Old Republic is going to push back against the sinister threat of summer boredom with its Galactic Legend update.

You won’t have to wait until then to check out the patch, however. Game Update 5.9.2 is up on the public test server right now for any who would like to put it through its paces.

The patch is primarily focused on PvP, with a new 4v4 arena map that uses Mandalore’s Battle Ring, Season 9 rewards, better PvP matchmaking, and multiple warzone improvements. Housing addicts can move into the Rishi Hideout stronghold, which is a tropical bungalow that offers players the opportunity to host their own PvP battles in that instance.

This is the 10th update to follow the Eternal Throne and Fallen Empire expansions.

“The patch is primarily focused on PvP”

And as Yoda said, “That is why you fail” :-)

My comment probably sounds far saltier than I intend — as usual, I’m simply trying to be funny (and likely failing at it) — but it’s fairly clear to me that somebody in change on the SWTOR team really likes the PvP, and by the Force, they’re gonna push that aspect, come hell or high water — even though the player numbers of most MMORPG games traditionally show that PvP is a niche or side aspect

Of course, it could also be true that publisher EA really has cut back funding for the SWTOR game, as some rumors suggest, thereby making PvP a more affordable content-creation option for the developers.

PvP content relies heavily on the players to “make their own fun”, and is typically cheaper to create thereby.

I don’t actually know what’s going on, of course, but I can’t shake the feeling that things aren’t optimal in Star Wars: The Old Republic.

I hope I’m wrong; I’d love to see the game rally and make a genuine comeback.

My opinions, anyway,
