OotiniCast Episode 211

In the news we cover Game Update 3.2.2, Chairgate, what’s happening with Game Update 3.3 on the PTS, and much more. Then in our discussion we cover the latest reveals about Knights of the Fallen Empire!

1. Introduction

In Knights of the Fallen Empire’s Sacrifice trailer, Ivilon identifies what could be a new theme for the expansion at 2:24. He also asks listeners to identify the very cool musical Easter Egg at 1:28: it’s a very recognisable piece of sound design from vanilla SWTOR that everyone should know.

Throughmas believes that 8:30 to the end of this track reminds him of Albinoni’s Adagio in G Minor.

Freedious believes the Cantina music 33 Smeelaaya Whao Tupee Upee reminds him of the opening song to Indian Jones and the Temple of Doom.

The Cantina song that Swtorista was singing was a rendition of Doe Azalus Ootmian.

  • The Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event is live, running until 25 August 2015.
  • The latest pack in Shipment 7, the Mid Rim Explorer’s Pack (previews from Dulfy and TORC), is now available. Each Hypercrate includes a single revamped Platinum Pack.
  • SWTOR has upgraded its security key system to allow the use of any OAuth-compatible authenticator app, including Google Authenticator and WinAuth. They have also upgraded the SWTOR mobile security key, though it may not install (due to an apparent incompatibility issue) on the latest Android devices.
  • The Yavin 4 Stronghold and Togruta livestream can be viewed on Twitch (part 1 and part 2) or on YouTube. There are summaries for what was covered on Dulfy and TORC, and Swtorista has a detailed preview of the Yavin 4 Stronghold.
  • Game Update 3.3 is now on the PTS. Various changes are being considered, including adding 500 and 1000 Warzone Commendation legacy-transferrable lockboxs, increasing the PvP daily and weekly rewards (to make up for the removal of Ranked Warzone Commendations), and introducing the increased Warzone Commendation cap early in Game Update 3.2.2.
  • Those doing the PvP weapon dance be warned: all PvP weapons will become bound to you during the Game Update 3.3. maintenance, preventing them from being exchanged for Warzone Commendations.
  • BioWare is providing some inducements to convince players to come together on the PTS to try out the PvP changes in regular warzones on Thursday, Friday and Saturday this week.
  • A member of the SWTOR security team gives us some insight into their ongoing fight against credit sellers and other nefarious criminals. Note that BioWare is aware of the new spammer technique that utilises emotes!
  • Star Wars Uprising is a new RPG for mobile platforms.

  • Patch 3.2c was deployed on Thursday morning in record time (35 minutes). Kudos to the Live Services team!
  • The Relics of the Gree event will conclude on Tuesday 26 May. Bounty Contract Week will then start, concluding on Tuesday 2 June.
  • Game Update 3.2.1 will be deployed on Wednesday 27 May, rather than Tuesday, delayed due to the Memorial Day public holiday on Monday 25 May. Preliminary patch notes have been made available.
  • Included in Game Update 3.2.1 is the restoration of the achievements earned from last year’s Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event that had mysteriously disappeared. Speaking of the Nar Shaddaa Nightlife event, it is making its annual return on Tuesday 9 June, running for 11 weeks until Tuesday 25 August.
  • If you believe you are experiencing a DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) attack while participating in PvP, please contact BioWare privately, providing as much information as you can. To avoid this happening to you, avoid situations where your personal internet connection’s IP address could be detected, such as logging into someone else’s Mumble, Ventrilo or TeamSpeak server, or posting on a private forum.
  • It appears that KOTOR2 (Knights of the Old Republic II – The Sith Lords) will soon be available on mobile devices.
  • Filmmaker Jamie Benning (@jamieswb) interviews Garrick Hagon, the actor who played Biggs Darklighter in Star Wars: A New Hope, in the video documentary Blast it Biggs! Where are you?!.
  • In a cryptic tweet, Aaryn Flynn (head of BioWare Edmonton and Montreal) hinted that BioWare could return to the “amazing universe” of Star Wars, and explicitly mentions KOTOR (Knights of the Old Republic). Could this be a non-SWTOR game in The Old Republic timeline?

  • Patch 3.2a was deployed with little warning on Thursday morning.
  • The Epic Story XP Boost was intended to be available to subscribers at 8am Pacific on 4 May; however, it wasn’t until later in the morning that it reached all players.
  • The rewards for Season 5 will be teased in a blog post later in May.
  • The issue with the spelling of Season 4 titles will be resolved in Game Update 3.2.1.
  • The Black-Silver Crystal that was a reward in Season 4 will also be a reward in subsequent seasons.
  • The endless war against win-traders and trolls in Ranked PvP continues.
  • The changes proposed for all the healing Disciplines have been postponed, and thus will not appear as originally intended in Game Update 3.2.1.
  • Game Update 3.2.1 has been removed from the PTS. The next PTS will be hosting Game Update 3.3, not Game Update 3.2.2.
  • Credit sellers were taken down en masse as a result of a long-running investigation.
  • On Thursday last week, a second round of more severe punishments were meted out to players accessing the Colossal Monolith encounter on Ziost ahead of its release on 4 May. No further action was required as no more players had taken advantage of the exploit on Friday or over the weekend.
  • In Electronic Arts’ (EA) Q4 2015 earnings call, they confirmed that EA’s E3 presentation would be on 15 June 2015, the date associated with #FallenEmpire at the Anaheim Community Cantina.

6. Sarlacc Digest

This one is free, BioWare. – Oni

Shown below are Kuze’s ideas to help retain existing players, and bring in new ones. Thanks to ElionD for her wishlist, and to Pnnick, Freedious, Rose Marie, Ferrous Terran, Laurie M, Brian (of the Bad Feeling Podcast) and Chong for their contributions.

PvP/GSF Ideas

  • Cross server queuing, even if it’s just between like servers or make super servers.
  • New 8v8 PvP Maps, and after cross server maybe some 12v12s
  • Statues as a PvP season reward (Top 10 on Server or so) in the Combat area with Players names on Plaques.
  • Rework Bolster for PvP. Just give everyone base stats that will never trump the lowest level of PvP gear regardless of what they have equipped. Once a piece of expertise gear is equipped that base value should be over written. What a crazy world it would be for people to have to play on skill alone. The min/maxing aspect of PvP should be done with PvP gear.
  • Add new maps and play styles to GSF. A team race through an old ship, asteroid, or space station would be awesome. A defend and attack swap map. A escort map where you have to protect a team member that is carrying a bomb to the enemy’s spaceport.

PvE Ideas

  • A PvE Star fighter encounter in the beginning of or during an operation. Even if the first introduction of this was a trench run style using fixed turrets and obstacles instead of an advanced AI battle.
  • New Hard mode Flashpoints similar to Lost Island (before all the nerfs) that are like mini ops with decent loot drops.

Quality of Life

  • Multi-spec with gear and action bar changer.
  • In game calendar for guilds and events.  Note: would have been great for Ziost!
  • Update GTN and all selection windows for better filtering/sorting. This goes for the character selection screen as well. I would like to order my characters and have them stay in order. For example, filter by not owned (decos, pets, mounts and maybe armor).
  • Mouse over raid frame with keybinds
  • Make bound to legacy the most restrictive (or unlocakble via craftable item or legacy 50)
  • Legacy wide search
  • Fix minor bugs more frequently to give the game a more polished feel so players don’t get frustrated and lead them down a Bioware hating road.

General

  • Reasons to have a high level of Valor and Legacy. (Valor e.g. PvP Gear discount for Valor rating X.) (Legacy e.g. Things like the ability to purchase 12x xp, Reveal previously explored areas and speeder/quick travel points as Legacy privilege only!)
  • Mini games, this can also be tied to a phone app as suggested last show.
  • Update seeker droid with new loot and UI.
  • Short Speed Boost while mounted similar to Rocket Boots.
  • Stronghold Dailies to earn new decos and cosmetic items. They could be simple fetch or crafting quest.
  • Portable GTN
  • SWTOR Advertising on TV
  • More platforming challenges! This could be for achievements, special loot, new datacrons, etc.
  • A site to view peoples Equipment, Achievements, Disciplines, and Utilities. Like WoWs Armory but we could call it ???
  • Fix the slot machine

Crafting

  • Stop nerfing crafting and start working to make it viable. Don’t get me wrong, I love my 8hr stims but things like this really take away from crafting. We had a lack of resource nodes in RotHC and too many in SoR; a balance needs to be found.
  • Give the player’s character an option to craft an item immediately with something like a 2hr cooldown. If you want more ideas I’m sure they’re out there.
  • All decos added into the game should require deco kits
  • A way to send companions out on alts all from one toon
  • Craftable sparkle powder
