Chill, Teo and Hyp discuss patch 1.4.1, which fixes a lot of the issues introduced with Game Update 1.4. As well as covering other news, we also wax lyrical about experience in the new operation, Terror From Beyond.
2. Question to the panel
3. Trivia question
This week’s question: What Star Wars-related thing do Bill Murray, Christopher Walken, Al Pacino, Sylvester Stallone, and Billy Dee Williams all have in common?

4. The Holofeed
- Patch 1.4.1 was deployed during the regular scheduled maintenance early on Tuesday morning. The majority of the issues introduced in Game Update 1.4 are now fixed, though several remain outstanding, including degraded performance.
- While the option to allow hoods to be pushed back remains a desired feature, it seems that the team is busy on upcoming content and the free-to-play conversion, and so our hoods will remain up for the foreseeable future.
- BioWare have introduced a new community feature, the Developer Spotlight. The first introduces Jesse Sky, Lead Flashpoints and Operations Designer. If you have follow-up questions for Jesse, ask them in this forum thread.
- The datamining of Game Update 1.4 performed by Torhead has turned up some upcoming content, summarised in this forum post. Force Junkies has an article (Leaked List of Upcoming Content and F2P Goodies) summarising what was found.
5. Force Feedback
We discuss tweets from @voyak, @ForceChuckle, @IRBountyHunter, @Dimbo56, @DanCremer, @AspisVodox, @banyo1984, @hallhood and @The_Jedi_Hermit.
We’d like to recommend the fine podcast SWTOR Reforged, formerly SWTOR: Off The Record. Well worth listening to!
Grim emails us with some rather clever ideas about how user-generated content could be incorporated into SWTOR, as well as some rather unfortunate suggestions about how BioWare could monetise the process!
In response to Sith Jawa’s comment on episode 47, we can confidently assure him that we plan to remain subscribed when free-to-play launches.
