The Ranked PvP Season 7 rewards have been announced, Eric Musco answers some questions about Knights of the Eternal Throne, and we discuss Shintar’s interview with Michael Backus about Flashpoints.
2. Star Wars Trivia Contest
WhistlinBreeze of the Jedi Covenant server has donated an awesome prize: an Amazon Bundle code which will give 90 days of subscription and 2400 Cartel Coins! Chill has created the following trivia question for you to answer for a chance to win the code:
In Star Wars: The Old Republic, what ability has the longest channel time? This includes only abilities that have an actual countdown channel while in use, such as Force Quake or Force Storm, not an ability like Sprint you can turn on and leave on until the next server reset. When you answer, please give the name of the ability and the length of time of the channel. The length isn’t necessary to win, but will help me figure out if it is as long or longer than my “official” answer and if I need to check up on it (and yes, if you have one with a longer channel, that one will trump my current answer.) One hint: if the channel is less than 30 seconds, don’t bother.
We will start the Tip of the Week back up next week, so send your tips for possible prizes to email@example.com.
- The rewards and tier rating ranges for Ranked PvP Season 7 have been released.
- Eric Musco (Community Manager) has taken to the forums to answer some questions:
- He quashed a rumour that in Game Update 5.0 (KotET), the various Advanced Classes would have access to additional weapon types.
- There is no plan to ever release Color Crystals with other than a +41 stat bonus.
- While it will be possible to bypass KotFE and start KotET on a given character, Eric highly recommends that you don’t!
- Shintar has had his questions answered by Michael Backus of BioWare on the subject of Flashpoints.
- EA has undergone a high level structural reorganisation, which we believe means effectively nothing to SWTOR.
- The folks at GVMERS believe there should be a KOTOR3.
