OotiniCast Episode 326

After discussing what’s in Game Updates 5.7 and 5.7a, and the EA earnings call for the last quarter 2017, we tackle the article which claims that BioWare’s focus is almost entirely on Anthem, which may negatively impact SWTOR.

1. Introduction

2. Tip of the week

Congratulations to this week’s winner, Marvinheim, who referred us to this video showing how to get a Flare Gun identical to that found in the Collector’s Edition.

Please send your tips to ootinicast@gmail.com before the next show 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.

  • Game Update 5.7 and the subsequent Game Update 5.7a have been deployed.
  • You can still select multiple characters from the guild list, though it’s now a bit tricky.
  • The Ranked PvP Leaderboard on the official site is now fully functional once more.
  • The server status page on the official site has been pared down to only show the server name and its status.
