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!
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.
2. Tip of the week
Congratulations to this week’s winner, Caomh! Thanks to Dekion, Areus and Bulaklak for entering.
Please send your tips to firstname.lastname@example.org by next Tuesday for a chance to win a Taunfawn or M8-3R droid code, courtesy of BioWare, and an OotiniCast-provided Cartel Market pack from the latest shipment.
- Game Update 3.2.2 was deployed during a marathon 14 hour maintenance on Tuesday.
- The Temple Chair (Basic) was made available on the Esstran Exports vendor for 1 credit, but could be sold back for 100 credits. Doing this was quickly declared to be an exploit. Penalties for players utilising this exploit are a minimum 7 day suspension along with having the credits obtained removed.
- In Game Update 3.3, currently on the PTS, it was decided that the change to prevent AoE damage from interrupting captures will NOT go ahead. There was also another round of combat changes. The Tatooine hook count is now 900 (was increased to 1100 on the PTS previously, currently 500 on live).
- Thanks to those who helped test the PvP changes on the PTS!
- The PvP rewards have been announced for Season 5.
- The cost of character transfers has been reduced to 90 Cartel Coins per character (reduced from the usual 1800 Cartel Coins). Swtorista’s has posted about what you would lose if you wanted to move your guild across to a new server, and suggestions to help guildmates pay for their transfer. SWTOR Miner reminds everyone that outfits created using the Outfit Designer do NOT survive character transfer.
- The Android version of The Old Republic Security Key will now install correctly on all devices. WinAuth is another authenticator, along with Google Authenticator, that support TOTP and thus can be used instead.
Thanks to our latest Ootini Patrons: Jerane, Kevin and OryansBelt.
Thank also to Master Liu for his iTunes review, and to the SWTOR Reddit community for supporting our posts!
5. Force Feedback
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.
John of The Progenitor provided this spreadsheet to help players analyse their own playtime with pretty graphs.
