Nice job on the new thread. Also, GAF Empire has a story Explosive Conflict run scheduled for 8pm EDT tonight, a change from the old 10pm on Saturday time.

Hold on, friend! I'd love to share with you some swell news about the Windows 8 Metro UI! Wait, where are you going?

Nice job! My first time on a Wall of Shame *wipes a tear* I'm so proud.....and ashamed.

Nice Op. :p

I'm surprised by how much I've been enjoying my sentinel in PVP. I'd heard they were rather late bloomers, but I've been doing pretty great at only level 20. The only class which I just physically can't kill head on is a sniper/gunslinger, but they're meant to be the counter to sents/maras.

Diplomacy has nothing to do with light armor or any other armor generation. It's specifically meant to provide medical supplies for blue and purple Biochem recipes. If you're a Synthweaver, you are probably going to want Underworld Trading for the Luxury Fabric drops.

You are right. When I get a chance, I will update that image to reflect current mechanics.

+100 willpower
+110 expertise
+108 power
+649 force power
+53 surge

I have this weird 'bug' where one of my friends always appears offline, even when they are not. I don't get the login notification and I have to manually open up my friends tab to see if they are online and the name etc still looks greyed out. It's fine on other toons... Not sure what's up with that, perhaps I can open a ticket or post on the swtor forums.

New thread and awesome OP! Nice job.


It's in reference to a shitty 4chan meme.
Ah im glad I didn't get it then.

I see they were doing a poll type thread on the official forum for planets people want to see added to the game, kashyyk and dagobah seemed to come out top.

I wouldn't mnd Dathomir personally.

Whatever planet they add I hope it's tropical or at least wooded. Too many planets with snow. I would happy with pleasantly sunny.

This times a million. Way too many snowy planets. Naboo would be nice, especially if we can visit the old-fashioned city as well as a forest and an underwater gungan city. I really want more diversity.

I ran my Assassin alt as a 0/10/31 in PVP today, and had a pretty rough time trying to figure out the playstyle. Death Field and load up the dots I suppose, then Thrash as they slowly eat the target for lunch. It was doing pretty mediocre damage numbers though.

I finished the Imperial Agent story the other day. That was really pretty satisfying the way it played out for me, and now I eagerly await an expansion or something for more class story content. :(

It's really simple once you get used to it. Recklessness on your first Death Field then then, Creeping Terror and Discharge on priority targets (healers.) After that I shock for the melee's bonus, followed by Thrash and hope for Raze to proc, then insta cast Crushing Darkness. By now Death Field is up again, so throw that on again, melee some more and watch the numbers fly.

As Madness I can solo anyone except for a really good Marauder/Sentinel or enemy Tankassins. Juggernauts/Guardians will blow their cool downs which will only help against you melee in which case, you just keep the DoT's on them and kite them around as there's nothing they can do about it. Sorcs/Sages I always wait for them to cast Force Shroud for the duration it lasts for them and then proceed to burn them down. Troopers/BH's probably go down to fastest to a Madness Sin/Sorc, using the same idea's stated above. It's a really fun spec with great utility (Self heal, Instant WW, Taunt) and really carry's it's weight in premades. In the hands of some better players it tops the charts with 500k+ dmg.

I'm reading a lot of complaints on the official forums about crashes and disconnects after the most recent patch. How is the game for you guys atm?
Got a 2 month gamecard here and want to get back into the game but not if it's unstable.

First day after the latest patch I had 2 crashes to desktop, since then nothing so wouldn't worry too much.

Completely stable. Not crashed once with the game, ever.

Since the most recent patch I crash maybe once every 30-45 well, the time really isn't accurate moreso what activities I'm doing. I'd say I've got a 1-3% chance to crash at a loading screen, while entering a warzone or starting a quest. From what I can tell in my case it's more likely to happen when the game is loading a cutscene or loading a sound file to play but thats just my personal experience. It has greatly reduced the my will to play the last two weeks or so.

Based on conversations with other players though the crashing doesn't actually seem very widespread which is the reason it's probably taking so long to fix. The most common crash after the patch was the one when you opened your Crew Skill windows and had alot of schematics the game would crash. That was easy to fix since you could identify and recreate. Mine are much more random but are associated to specific activities but sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Same. I'm getting random crashes from time to time, but it's hard to pinpoint why the game is crashes or with what frequency. For a while it was sometimes when I exited a WZ but that's stopped now. Either way I don't think the crash issue is pervasive enough that it makes the game unenjoyable, it happens infrequently enough that I don't really mind.

I've crashed a couple of time since the last patch. Never once before that

I never had a single disconnect (except due to my ISP) or CTD until 1.2, and then I had quite a few crashes, sometimes twice a day. Nothing changed about my hardware or software (except for installing ME1), but I haven't had any issues at all since the last patch. Granted, I've only played for about six hours since then, but hey, I'm doing better.

I've had a significant amount of in-game lag since the latest patch. Particularly on the fleet and during 16m Hard Mode Operations. I've never had any trouble running the game on very high in the past.

I'd assume it's my server, but considering the server is now dead (like many others), I find that difficult to believe.

The only annoying problem I have since 1.2 is the sound being messed-up.
ie: Companion speaks way to low (are ok in cutscenes tho), and the damn speeder noise is way to high (bad on the fleet especially), as opposed to pre-1.2

Shutting down the environmental sound dosen't fix the voice issues, nor does removing the companion's helmet.

SWTOR now has 1.3m active subscriptions.

"STAR WARS®: The Old Republic™ active subscribers are 1.3 million. Two new content packs — Legacy and Allies, available in Q1."

Still a pretty strong user base.
All they need to do is consolidate everyone togetter...
Glad to see the game is still alive and well.
