OotiniCast Episode 321

Plenty of news, including the culmination of United Forces with the collapse down to only five servers, and what’s coming in Game Update 5.6 (lots!), which now excludes the slightly delayed Yavin 4 warzone. All that and more!

1. Introduction

Fyohna was referring to this video of the Carrie Fisher tribute at Star Wars Celebration (Orlando 2017).

Here’s is Chill’s aptly named latest alt, Chillsolo:

2. Tip of the week

3. Holofeed

  • United Forces is here, with the SWTOR servers collapsed down to five with an extended maintenance to deploy Game Update 5.5.1.
  • Darth Hexid is confirmed to be account-wide.
  • The short story “Copero” gives a brief introduction to the new Flashpoint’s setting.

  • While the warzone set on Yavin 4 has been delayed by a couple of weeks until Game Update 5.6.1 due on 12 December, the rest of Game Update 5.6 is on track to arrive on 28 November. It includes the Master’s Datacron, an insta-boost to level 70.
  • Game Update 5.5.1a fixed the issue affecting some players who’d temporarily lost some items in their merged Legacy Cargo Bays.
  • BioWare has published some more concept art, this time for Taris:

  • EA has published its Form 10-Q, the quarterly report for the quarter ending with September.
  • EA announced shortly before the launch of Star Wars Battlefront 2 that it was suspending in-game microtransactions for the short term.
  • It seems that there’s suddenly a lot of hope that Disney will produce a trilogy of movies set in the Old Republic era. From what Kathleen Kenedy (LucasFilm) actually said, it’s hard to draw any kind of meaningful conclusion.

4. Force Feedback

Medullah provided this screenshot of his character’s romance with Zombie Corso:
