5. Force Feedback

Aaree wonders whether this new hairstyle coming in next week’s Pilgrim’s Shadow Pack could mean that Ootini cheerleaders are in our future?


Our old friend Ham Sammich appears to have defeated some Jawas in Star Wars Commander. Boo.

Ham - Jawa surrender

Greg found another pretty cool looking place on Makeb:

6. Sarlacc Digest

We talk about getting ready for Game Update 3.0, with early access happening on 2 December, and its full release on 9 December.

Note that to do the class-specific mission that is an optional part of the Shadow of Revan storyline, the character must have completed up to Act 3 (when you get the associated Achievement) in their class story.

The conversion ratios of our current PvE commendations into Basic Commendations when Game Update 3.0 is released have been announced and incorporated into our conversion calculator. The cap of 1000 Basic Commendations will remain, but an overflow/soft cap of up to 2000 will be used as part of the conversion. Note that you will not be able to earn any further Basic Commendations in Game Update 3.0 until you are under the 1000 cap.
