It was a bit of a slow news week, this week wasn’t it?
This week in Star Wars: The Old Republic (16-22 February) nothing made much sense and excuses were made but the community made it all better. So let’s sum it up!
So there was this Promotional Trailer thing..
And.. Well, it didn’t seem to have much of a point. Something to do with choosing your path? I mean we’ve all done that plenty of times in this game.
I’m sorry but if you’re trying to draw new players to the game. Don’t create crappy trailers. Create decent fucking content. Like PvP. You know, if the player base is happy with the game maybe they’ll hype it up and tell people about it and then get them to play.
My point is, there are plenty of other ways they can get people interested in and playing SWTOR. They don’t have to rely on silly trailers like this.
So SWTOR decided to cancel their second Community Cantina Tour. This time, theyblamed the weather.. Okay so this might be cause I don’t live in a place that doesn’t have to deal with snow.. But huh? So people can predict the weather 2 weeks out from now? Yeah okay.
So instead, they’re doing a Live Stream which I am really excited about. It will be great for the whole community to have access to a Cantina Event. I did suggest they do something like this in my blog post on some ways they can improve their community streams. So I’m looking forward to watching this.
Snave hosted a dueling Tournament on the Red Eclipse (European PvE Server) and from what I saw, it went really well! It’d be great to see more community events like this in the future. Snave is keen to get an 8v8 Tournament happening on the PTS sometime which I think would be fantastic! If you want to see how it all went down check out the video highlights on Snave’s Hitbox Channel.
Speaking of community stuff, I’ll have something to announce very shortly!
What did I get up to?
This week, I did quite a lot of PvP on my Merc and on my little Assassin. Ran some premades with my guildies, had fun, won matches, you know, the usual. Also did some raiding.. But yeah that’s about it.
So what did you get up to this week? What did you think of the promotional trailer thing?by
