2. Tip of the week

Congratulations to this week’s winner, Alex! Thanks to Bahumet/Locke, AmenRe, Thunder, Sukai, Greg, Pandoren, Knite and Kranitoko for entering.

Please send your tips to ootinicast@gmail.com by next Tuesday for a chance to win a Taunfawn or M8-3R droid code, courtesy of BioWare, and an OotiniCast-provided Cartel Market pack from the latest shipment.

3. Holofeed

  • Patch 4.0.1a was deployed on Wednesday morning.
  • Some players have encountered issues with using their insta-60 (“Start at 60”) tokens. The latest advice from BioWare is that the insta-60 tokens should not be used until further notice.
  • If pay Cartel Coins to unlock an item in your Collections, and it isn’t available on your other characters, restarting the client will fix the problem.
  • Some players do not have access to companions that they are entitled to after Game Update 4.0. This issue should be resolved in the upcoming Game Update 4.0.2.
  • Electronic Arts held its Q2 2016 earnings call.
  • BioWare held a Knights of the Fallen Empire roundtable with their developers, inviting influencers and the press. Swtorista was one of those who attended, and wrote up her experience on her blog.

4. Community

He also appears to have seen two instances of Hemdil Tre!

MaterRex sent us this cartoon which may be one of the rare examples of Star Wars humour that is actually funny (originally tweeted by @killer_kitsch):
