Star Wars The Old Republic marks Star Wars Day with a collection sale, double XP, and another free droid pet

Yes, another one, but this time it's in black and grey

It just ain’t a celebration in Star Wars: The Old Republic without having another astromech droid added to your pet collection, am I right? So it shall be once again as the MMORPG plans to celebrate May the 4th (aka Star Wars Day) by handing out an M4-Y10 Astromech Droid Mini-pet styled after the droid in the animated series The Bad Batch. Players can collect their robot as a login reward for one week. Beep bloop squonk!

The mini-event isn’t just about raking in another free rolling trash can robo-friend, but also raking in the levels thanks to double XP earnings that will run for two full weeks and raking in those sweet collectibles thanks to a a collection unlock sale that will run during the same week as the droid pet giveaway. So even if you’re exhausted by the endless supply of colorful astromechs that are dished out like candy at Halloween, there might still be something worth logging in for.

I remember when the game launched and people were immediately incensed that they rolled back some of the graphic quality from the beta, even made the ridiculous statement that ‘we found the game’s performance was impacted by maximum quality’ or something equally ridiculous. People were tweaking .ini files to wring the best quality out of the game engine they could.

here in 2021 that should be completely unnecessary. I wonder if they could do a graphic quality update now, i.e., give us what they intended in the first place? It’s really a pretty good game with great cinematic storytelling.

welcome to the land of re-colours, no new model, just as re-coloured chibi droid of the same model again..

I appreciate the fact that they do something every May 4, however small, but thank goodness for the Double XP at least because the droid pets have literally never been exciting in any way.

I can’t really get into “pets”. They seem mildly annoying to me. The one exception? my kitty in BDO. She’s precious. I guess others feel that way about their pets too, and that was the one pet that finally broke through to my heart :)

I logged in to check it out, tis the season after all. I then encountered the weirdest thing I’ve ever seen in an MMO. All of my guys and the world is stretched. Not sure I care enough to figure out why.

Change resolution to a ratio that fits your monitor.

That ain’t it. Plus the UI is correct. It never plays well with multiple monitors and is likely due to that or a windows setting. Doesn’t matter, game is boring.

This game had horrendous graphics issues for me. Had to reinstall all the drivers for my graphics card and then update them. Utter trash. Never again.
