OotiniCast Episode 261

A fair bit of news this week, including the temporary return of cheap character transfers, upcoming class changes, and what Eric Musco talked about during his marathon livestream. Then our discussion is on the topic of the Hate Police, those players who take it upon themselves to attack anyone critical of SWTOR.
