SWTOR offers community Q&A, celebratory weekend discount
BioWare has often stated that fans are central Star Wars: The Old Republic’s development. Decisions ranging from the weapon design to ranked warzones have been influenced by direct feedback from fans. So this week, the SWTOR community team has shifted its focus back on the fans by highlighting some of the extraordinary players of the game in the triumphant return of Fan Friday, which highlights (among others) the image above by Spartanash and others that display player characters in powerful poses and ornate outfits.
The community team says that player Iwipe is an “incredible asset” to the community because of her helpful community guides. Specifically, her 1.2 Dailies and PvE Gear Guide, Hardmode Flashpoint Loot List, and Rakghoul Outbreak Guide top the list of her most impressive pieces. When asked why she writes these guides, she explained, “Forums are a great source of information but it takes time to dig through and find relevant info so I started writing guides and such to help the community out.”
The team has also posted this week’s Community Q&A, which covers purple lightsaber crystals, guild mail, mentoring systems, cross-server legacy implementation, and more. And if that weren’t enough, EA has put the whole game on sale for the weekend for just $34.44.
