Our adventures in KotET continue, and the CXP grind begins! We discuss the latest news, this week’s producer livestream, and finish up with a discussion on whether the CXP boost makes SWTOR pay to win.

Charlie (Kranitoko) produced a SWTOR Life Day parody song: the TWELVE DAYS OF LIFE DAY!
Blachloch (Blay) made an homage to pre-KotET Empire-side combat animations in this video.
Todd reports that Strike Force Tauntaun has the headless character glitch!
It seems the bug that causes our characters to disappear is still out there, as encountered by LiebeAroha:
