Chill, Teo and Hyp discuss all we know about SWTOR’s upcoming conversion to free-to-play, coming in November.
2. Question to the panel
3. Trivia question
We’re extending last week’s challenge, with an extra hint: one word which may make this a lot more solvable! This is a ‘who am I’ question—I will describe someone, and you say who I am. I am in two Star Wars movies. I play a leader of some kind in one movie, and that leader’s underling in the other. I am uncredited for both roles. My character dies onscreen both times. Who am I? (If you don’t know the name of the actor, naming both roles will suffice.)
If you are interested in being entered in the random drawing for a Tauntaun Fawn code, please send your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. The Holofeed
- Patch 1.3.4a was deployed during a brief maintenance on Thursday. However, there was no maintenance (and thus no new patch) on Tuesday.
- We go over some questions from the Community Q&A: July 27th, 2012.
5. Sarlacc Digest
Jeff Hickman, the new Executive Producer for SWTOR (previously Executive Producer – Live Services, apparently replacing Rich Vogel) provided a blog post, Announcing a Free-to-Play Option. Jeff and the recently appointed General Manager for the BioWare Austin studio, Matthew Bromberg, were also interviewed by MMORPG.com (Star Wars: The Old Republic Interviews: Free to Play This Fall).
6. Force Feedback
- We discuss tweets from @tshapedvisor, @Dimbo56, @IRBountyHunter, @ForceChuckle and @IzaakTheMad.
- @toliman (Joli) suggests the program described in this forum post that makes use of a RAMDisk to boost SWTOR performance.
- @JediAio recommends a forum post describing what endgame items can be reverse engineered.
- Hru emails in with some hints on the best place to farm Ice Scrabbler Livers.
