No New SWTOR Game Testing Build This Weekend

While those who had been game testing anxiously await news of when the servers will be back up with the new build, Senior Community Coordinator, Allison Berryman eased the anxiety and let the game testers know that they might as well find something else to do this weekend.

There will be no new build over the weekend (October 28th, 29th and 30th). So now that you know it’s official, you can stop refreshing the beta forums over and over and find something else to do. Why don’t we ponder for a bit on what this new build might entail?

How close do you think the new game testing build will be to the final version of the game that will launch in less than 60 days? You don’t have to be testing the game right now to join us in speculating what might be in the new build. These are the final days of polishing for BioWare.

Will we see new flashpoints or will they wait until official launch to add those? Someone in my Twitter feed earlier today said he expects to see a new mini game by launch. Could that be in the new beta build?

Will old bugs be fixed? Will new worlds be added? What about new companions? Will the chat functions work better? Will the UI be changed at all? So many questions and yet no one really knows.

What are your best ideas for what they could (or should) be adding to the new game testing build?
