OotiniCast Episode 168

We discuss what’s in Game Update 2.10.1, why we’re still waiting for details about that end-of-year expansion which it appears will be called Shadow(s) of Revan.

3. Holofeed

  • BioWare is investigating why many players appear to have lost their achievements from the Nar Shaddaa Casino event.
  • Game Update 2.10.1 was deployed on Tuesday morning. It included the introduction of an achievement and title for conquering CZ-198, though for those who’ve earned them previously it may be some time before they are applied retroactively.
  • An apparently unintended benefit of the patch is that companion archetype buffs appear to have been increased. However, the legacy reductions for the cooldowns of the Emergency Fleet Pass and Quick Travel were broken, though were quickly remedied by Game Update 2.10.1a that was deployed on Thursday morning.
  • The Slot Machine: Smuggler’s Gambit decoration that was missing from the Constable’s Stronghold Pack will be made available for 1 credit from the Binary Star Realty vendor in Game Update 2.10.2.
  • Bruce Maclean (Producer) let us know that the news about the end-of-year expansion that was supposed to come at the end of September has been delayed for at most two weeks. Eric Musco (Community Manager) elaborated on what had happened, and then went into further detail about the cause for the delay.
  • It appears that BioWare have revealed that the name of the end-of-year expansion is either “Shadow of Revan” or “Shadows of Revan”, based upon this tweet:

4. Community

If you are on either faction of Jung Ma (US East RP-PvP server), you may be interested in the SWTOR division of the Remnants of Hope gaming community. You can see their recruitment video here.

Community legend Snave (he’s kind of a big deal) will be interviewing Eric Musco on his Twitch channel on Wednesday 15 October (7pm BST, 1pm CDT, Thu 5am AEDT). I believe this can be considered essential viewing.

5. Force Feedback

Both @Jumoraf and JB recommend that people check out this video showing various Star Wars locations created in MineCraft.

Here is Chaz Lobo after completing a 5km Kessel Fun Run. What a fantastic photo opportunity!
