3. Holofeed

  • The PTS is closing this coming Monday (31 March) at 10am CDT (4pm BST, 2am AEDT) ahead of the deployment of Game Update 2.7 on Tuesday 8 April.
  • Friend of the show Jason Connell (@Jayconnell) attended the Community Cantina held last Saturday (22 March) in Boulder, Colorado. He wrote up his experiences, which we posted here. Based on the question about new planets coming to SWTOR, I started a thread in the SWTOR sub-Reddit, which garnered some most interesting replies.
  • The second round of answers in the resumed Class Representative program have arrived, this time for Powertechs/Vanguards.
  • Jason Attard clarified what increasing power to a particular pool (weapons, shields or engines) in Galactic Starfighter actually does, how power pool regeneration works (there are two separate regeneration rates) and the effect of range on accuracy and damage.
  • Eric Musco (Community Manager) has published a series of answers to commonly-asked questions about PvP, with the intention of being transparent about their current plans and thinking. He reiterated that things may change in the medium- to long-term, but for now this is how things are.

4. Community

See this thread on our forums for more about the Community Cantina in Las Vegas happening in November, which will coincide with our first recording of OotiniCast where all the hosts will (hopefully!) be in the same room.

  1. Enjoying your podcast … I live in a french canadian area … French people never pernounce the TH sound (or H for that matter)

    So that’s why Darth = Dark

  2. Which podcast did you share a link to a vanguard pvp guide. It was quite recent but I can find it anywhere. Thanks for the great podcast as always
