OotiniCast Episode 165

In the news, we discuss the teaser for the expansion coming towards the end of the year. Then in our discussion, the topic is how the Conquest system is playing out, positives and negatives, and some ideas about how to tweak it for the better.

1. Introduction

2. Tip of the week

Congratulations to this week’s winner, Infidel (Guildmaster of Pax Imperius on The Ebon Hawk server)! Thanks to Arneel, Sab and Caligari for entering.

  • Preferred players should now all have access to Galactic Strongholds.
  • The Constable’s Stronghold Pack is now available. Its contents are (as usual!) previewed by Dulfy, and Kranitoko opens a hypercrate of them in his new pack opening video.
  • The class forums are being consolidated to make them more compact and thus navigable, which includes merging the sub-forums for mirror classes (e.g., Jedi Sentinels and Sith Marauders will now share the same forum).
  • On Tuesday morning’s livestream, Eric Musco and Charles Boyd played through the new Legacy of the Rakata tactical Flashpoint. At the end, they released a very short teaser trailer (also on YouTube). It reveals what appears to be Revan, returned to continue his plans that were at least temporarily stymied at the end of The Foundry Flashpoint. The following images compare his appearance then to how he looks in the teaser trailer.
