Another light news week, so we have Sechari on to talk about his content locustry article, focusing on why progression is so important to an MMO.
You can find out more about the ExtraLife event that Sechari is participating in here.
2. Tip of the week
Congratulations to this week’s winner, La Chimba! Thanks to Nev for entering.
Please send your tips to firstname.lastname@example.org by next Tuesday for a chance to win a Taunfawn or M8-3R droid code, courtesy of BioWare, and an OotiniCast-provided Cartel Market pack from the latest shipment.
- The episode of the Star Wars Show that failed to mention SWTOR amongst the other EA Star Wars games can be found here.
- In response to this straw poll about the gear required to clear the Eternal Championship, Ben Irving provided the average item rating of players completing each of the Eternal Championship’s ten rounds.
- Teo wonders whether the “Join the fight” live action advertisement will be used for the Light Side/Dark Side competition, which we’ll find out more about on Thursday. In the meantime, Eric Musco confirmed that the companion that will be rewarded for the competition, with their alignment chosen based upon player choices, is completely new. He also mentioned that light and dark side points obtained via the Diplomacy mission skill do NOT count for the competition.
- Snave interviewed Eric Musco. You can watch the entire video here. A Reddit moderator created a detailed summary of what was covered.
- We discuss the documentary Star Wars: The Old Republic – The BioWare Story (also on YouTube).
