2. Tip of the week
Congratulations to this week’s winner, Russ! Thanks to Raymond, GasGuy, Jay Connell, Mark, Fisk, Ben B and Bara-dur for entering.
ArticueGaming has a new channel that will be primarily PvP tips and video for SWTOR.
GasGuy recommends swtor-holo.net‘s guides for leveling your crafting skills.
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.
- Game Update 2.7: Invasion was deployed during regular maintenance on Tuesday. We recommend Dulfy’s various guides that comprehensively cover what’s in 2.7. Note that with their new delivery cadence, we can expect maintenance every three weeks, excepting the times when an emergency patch needs to be deployed.
- You can see the analysis of the data associated with Ranked PvP Season 1 on our Leaderboards page for solo and group.
- It seems a small number of glitches made it to live with Game Update 2.7.
- The Shroud lets us know the “State of the Galaxy”.
- Bounty Contract Week is back this week, finishing Tuesday 15 April at 7am CDT (1pm BST, 10pm AEST). It will overlap with the “make good” double XP weekend, which will run from Friday 1pm CDT (7pm BST, Saturday 4am AEST) to Monday 2am CDT (8am BST, 5pm AEST).
- The Class Representative programme continues, with the top three questions answered for Commandos and Mercenaries.
- The Known In-game Issues list on the official forums has been revamped to only include “largely impacting, high traffic issues”.
- Following this Friday’s Community Cantina in Boston, the next couple have been announced: Vancouver, Canada on Friday 16 May, and Los Angeles on Thursday 12 June.
