With Game Update 2.7 set to drop next Tuesday, we revisit what it includes and provide some advice on how to get ready. Returning guest Jacob also provides some insight into how the class changes in 2.7 will affect Ranked PvP Season 2.
2. Tip of the week
Congratulations to this week’s winner, Oxi-jin!
Please send your tips to firstname.lastname@example.org by next Wednesday for a chance to win a M8-R3 code, courtesy of BioWare, and an OotiniCast-provided Cartel Market pack from the latest shipment.
- BioWare announced a new ship role for Galactic Starfighter a lot earlier than expected; in fact, on April 1st. It’s the Asteroid. Eric Musco subsequently let us know about the “Fist bump, bro” achievement (for crashing your Asteroid ship into another asteroid), Tait revealed the “Roid Rage” achievement (for getting killed 10 times in a row while piloting the Asteroid, then quitting the match), and Courtney told us about the “Back that Ast Up” achievement (if you fly your Asteroid backwards for a certain amount of time). There’s also the “> 9000” title for killing 9,001 Scouts, and the title “‘The Rock’ Johnson” after 500 kills in your Asteroid.
- If you have an idea for the next warzone, BioWare would like to hear from you! Contribute to this thread in the official forums, though pay careful attention to what the development team is after.
- In response to a query sent to Musco, prompted by the assertion by Corellian Run Radio’s Jason (@JT_HoloNet) that Galactic Stronghold’s “Prestige Score” was something new, Musco confirmed that it was indeed a new system unrelated to achievement points.
Our ops group that runs on Fridays at 4:30pm Pacific is hoping to expand to 16-man. If you’re interested in joining us on a regular basis, see this thread on our forums for details.
