OotiniCast Episode 212

Very little SWTOR news this week, so we also cover some E3 highlights from Star Wars Battlefront. It’s very much the calm before the KotFE storm!

1. Introduction

You can hear Chill’s dramatic reading of a classic Star Wars comic book on Vox Box Star Wars Comic Book Podcast #9—Before Rancor—there was Behemoth!

2. Tip of the week

Congratulations to this week’s winner, Mariachi! Thanks to Koopa, @Chronos1981, GasGuy, Blachloch and Ol’sláyer for entering.

3. Holofeed

  • Patch 3.3.2a was deployed to fix the vendor cost of the Temple Chair (Basic). The actions taken against the Chairgaters are being finalised.
  • Preferred (and possibly free-to-play) players may now attach a mobile security key to their accounts.
  • Ranked PvP Season 5 will end with Game Update 3.3, with Season 6 starting immediately. However, there will be a pre-season before Season 7 commences, presumably sometime after the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion goes live).
  • In Star Wars Battlefront news, the game may be delayed if it’s not ready, the AT-ATs are on rails, LucasFilm determined how the weapons are balanced and DICE know there’s a huge number of ways they could f*** it up.

  1. Well… maybe BioWare is considering the server transfer rename trick as an exploit soon and punsih players for doing that?


  2. New operation released with 4.0. Track down and defeat Vitiate. As he dies he pulls cavern temple down around you. Faced with certain death you rush to nearby carbonite chambers. 5 years later a companion digs you up to begin kotfe. You will of course have the option to solo the op, ala yavin.
