6. Sarlacc Digest

Our guest LiebeAroha discusses experiencing both depression and anxiety, and how gaming can provide a most helpful escape and even treatment for her illnesses. She provided the following information about her condition:

Depression research

  • Depression/depressed often used colloquially to a moment in time or a more temporary reaction
  • Classified through the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) and the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10)
    • Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)
    • Dysthymic Disorder (DD)
    • Bipolar Disorder (BD)
  • Each diagnosis is defined by a set of inclusion/exclusion criteria that identify the presence of a particular condition
  • There is no good evidence that each threshold separates the different diagnoses into distinct user groups

Major Depressive Disorder

  • “Presence of at least one discrete and distressing/impairing period of depression, formally referred to as a major depressive episode (MDE)”
  • Must experience at least five symptoms of depression that are a change from the individual’s prior state and functioning
  • This MUST include a disturbance of mood – depressed mood or anhedonia. Depressed mood must be observable by others and must be present most of the day nearly every day, and anhedonia is a near complete loss or serious decrease in feelings of pleasure derived from one’s activities
  • Changes to circadian rhythms also present

Dysthymic disorder

  • Chronic mood disorder
  • Mood may be noticeable to others
  • For diagnosis, two of the following must be present:
    • Appetite problems (overeating or poor appetite)
    • Sleep difficulties (insomnia or hypersomnia)
    • Low energy or fatigue
    • Low self-esteem
    • Cognitive problems (difficulty making decisions or with concentration
    • Feelings of hopelessness
  • Major difference between MDD and DD is the length of time symptoms persist (2 weeks vs 2 years)

Bipolar disorder

  • Doesn’t always have a depressive episode
  • Must have a manic episode, which is a persistently elevated mood

Manifestations

  • Depressive disorders are classed as unipolar disorders
  • It is possible to have abatements of symptoms
  • There can be a family history
  • MDEs occurring in unipolar depression are often reactions to stressors

The “Soft” Spectrum of Depressive Disorders

These include bipolar 2, bipolar disorder not otherwise specified, cyclothymic disorder, and rapid cycling bipolar disorder.

Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD

  • A depressive cycle that is tied to menstrual cycles

Minor Depressive Disorder

  • Same length as long as those required for an MDE (2 weeks) however there are fewer symptoms

Recurrent Brief Depressive Disorder

  • Repeated periods of depressive symptoms, two or more of which fulfill the symptom threshold, but not the duration threshold (i.e., 2 weeks) for an MDE
  • The episodes must last at least 2 days (but less than 2 weeks), and they must recur at least once per months for a period of 12 consecutive months

The Spectrum of Depressive Disorder Categories

Depression is a spectrum, rather than a specific condition. The following are the most common along the spectrum, along with their symptoms:

  • Early-onset bipolar disorder
  • Melencholia
    • often occurs with MDD, experiences of anhedonia as well as three symptoms from among the following:
      • diurnal variation of mood (mood is worse in the morning than in the afternoon or evening);
      • Considerable psycomotor agitation or retardation;
      • Early morning wakening (i.e., awakening hours before one’s scheduled morning wakening and being unable to go back to sleep);
      • Significant appetite or weight loss;
      • Excessive or inappropriate guilt;
      • and distinct quality of the depressed mood (i.e., experienced as qualitatively different from a normal feeling of grief or sadness that follows a loss),
  • Atypical depression
    • The person can react positively to positive stimuli; as well as at least two of the following: weight or appetite increase, hypersomnia, leaden paralysis (feeling heavy or weighed down), and sensitivity to interpersonal rejection),
  • Catatonic depression
    • This can apply to a multitude of diagnoses, including bipolar, major depressive disorder and minor depressive disorders
    • Requires two of the following five symptoms: motoric immobility, excessive motor activity that appears to be purposeless, extreme negativism (defined by resistance to instructions, mutism, or maintenance of a rigid posture), peculiar movements, and echolalia or echopraxia (senseless repetition of a word or phrase spoken by someone else or imitation of others’ movements)
  • psychotic features
    • Characterised by delusional thinking
  • Postpartum depression
    • Depression occurring within 4 weeks of childbirth
  • Premenstrual Dysphoric Disorder (PMDD)
    • Depressive symptoms associated with the menstrual cycle
  • Seasonal affective disorder (SAD)
    • Defined by recurrent depressive episodes (meeting criteria for either major or minor depressive episodes that have a clear seasonal pattern.

Who is likely to experience depression?

  • Sometimes referred to as the common cold of psychopathology
  • Rates of depression depend on the definition of depression used
  • From studies done, it appears that less than 10% of the population suffer from depression for a short period of time over their lifetime, and a much smaller proportion suffer depression for extended periods of time

  • Game Update 5.1.1 was deployed on Tuesday.
  • It was clarified that CXP and XP have a 3.5 multiplier applied to all rewards, which will continue until Game Update 5.2 arrives in late March or early April.
  • While the same multiplier was intended to be applied to Requisition rewarded from GSF, it’s currently only doubled; this will be changed to the intended 3.5 multiplier in Game Update 5.1.2.
  • BioWare is investigating a way of disabling the effect of the multiplier on regular pre-70 XP for those who don’t want to level too quickly.
  • There are more changes to the rewards from Galactic Command coming in Game Update 5.1.2.
  • Following last week’s earnings call, Electronic Arts have submitted their quarterly report (10-Q).

OotiniCast Episode 299

A few things happening in SWTOR this week, including another exploit that was very quickly dealt with, some followup from last week’s livestream, and requesting players apply to join the Closed PTS for Game Update 5.2. We also discuss Electronic Arts quarterly earnings call, in which SWTOR got no mention at all, but did announce a new BioWare IP!

  • The SWTOR servers were abruptly taken down to deal with a new exploit. Action will be taken against those who abused the exploit. BioWare is considering offering a reward or some other incentive for players to report exploits rather than use them.
  • The new Operation coming in Game Update 5.2 will have both 8-man and 16-man modes.
  • Weeky missions may be introduced, to supplement the existing dailies.
  • The faction choice players must make in the new Game Update 5.2 story arc will not impact Companions already in your Alliance.
  • Further changes to Galactic Command are coming in Game Update 5.1.1 (next week) and Game Update 5.1.2 (late February). More about that in next week’s show.
  • Instructions are available for how to apply for access to the Closed PTS for Game Update 5.2.
  • Electronic Arts had their Q3 2017 earnings conference call this week (press release, slides [PDF}, transcript [PDF]).
  • We use Google Trends as a proxy for SWTOR’s popularity to determine if KotFE’s success was due to the expansion itself, or the halo effect of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, now that we also have KotET’s release in the timeline.

4. Force Feedback

Blay believes that he has identified who the title of Episode 8 is referring to:

“Luke Skywalker has vanished. In his absence, the sinister FIRST ORDER has risen from the ashes of the Empire and will not rest until Skywalker, the last Jedi, has been destroyed.”

Jason says that the mobile game Galaxy of Heroes is now just teasing us, given its non-canon-establishing position:

  • Cheap server transfers (intra-region is 90 CC, between EU and US is 150 CC) will continue for the foreseeable future, with at least a week’s warning when (if?) their original prices are restored.
  • Game Update 5.1: Defend the Throne was deployed on Tuesday.
  • Patch 5.1a was deployed on Thursday afternoon to add the five new Uprisings to the Group Finder.
  • Command Tokens for previously obtained Command Crates are granted to a given character when they log in.
  • The change to Bolster in Warzones (from item rating 250 to 232) was made to ensure that the Bolstered level wasn’t higher than the best gear in the game (currently item rating 242).
  • BioWare held “A Look Ahead Livestream” on Thursday afternoon, with a follow-up post summarising what was discussed, which included the announcement of Game Update 5.2: The War for Iokath which includes a story arc culminating in a daily area, and the first boss (Tyth) of a five-boss Operation. The class companions Quinn (Sith Warrior) and Elara (Trooper) will return as part of the story arc.
  • It has been officially confirmed that Carrie Fisher will not reprise her role as Princess or General Leia Organa as a digital puppet.

4. Force Feedback

Our old friend SWTOR Miner believes that the first boss of the new Operation bears a striking resemblance to a Horde Trooper from Masters of the Universe:

  • Carrie Fisher, who played Princess Leia, passed away on 27 December. Many hundreds of SWTOR players have been paying their respects by visiting Castle Organa on Alderaan, as can be seen in this fan-made tribute.
  • Groopur of our own Ootini Knights was one of those who participated:

  • Among several ideas of how BioWare could celebrate her memory is this petition requested that an Alderaan Stronghold be added.
  • It seems that the “Myserious Empire of Zakuul” was only listed in the Polish version of the Star Wars: Galactic Atlas.

  • The discipline your character has determines what type (tank, DPS or healer) of gear you will receive.
  • The top 96 players of the various Advanced Classes will be finalised by Game Update 5.1 as BioWare eliminates those players from the running who were cheating.
