SWTOR Legacy of the Sith delayd until February 15, 2022.

Project Director of Legacy of the Sith , Keith Kanneg posted an update regarding Legacy of the Sith. The expansion is delayed until next year. Here is the news: We have made the difficult decision to delay the release of Legacy of the Sith to February 15, 2022. Like many of you reading this, I personally cannot wait for the launch of our next expansion. I’ve greatly enjoyed my time exploring the depths of Manaan, testing out new story and ability combinations with Combat Styles, and more during internal playtests. Legacy of the Sith is something the team has been hard at work on for quite a while but as we get ever closer to launch, it is clear that we need a bit more time. We’re focusing additional testing on the many areas we have changed throughout the game to deliver the experience we want, and one that you…

The next SWTOR expansion is called Legacy of the Sith and will be on the planets of Manaan and Flashpoint on Elom!

I know there’s a text filter so here’sa codex entry about manaan. “Few planets have been as important to both sides of the war as Manaan. But with its surface covered completely by water, and with its native Selkath population having adopted an isolationist stance, access to the planet can be difficult to come by. The Selkath economy’s reliance on the export of kolto to the Republic and the Empire does provide opportunities to visit, but guests are typically limited to the world’s few trading platforms–the only surface structures not affected by the Empire’s bombardment of the planet during the Great Galactic War. Millennia of Rakatan dominion over the planet and a predominantly unexplored ocean floor evoke strong temptations to probe Manaan’s crushing depths. However, due to the strategic importance of its kolto reserves, Manaan will have to largely remain a mystery for now.” BioWare marks a new era for…

Onslaught: Is It Kill Or Cure?

SWTOR-Onslaught-1080x675

There aren’t as many people playing SWTOR as there used to be. If you’re still a regular player, you’ll already know that. The game isn’t denying- despite unhelpful articles that refer to the Electronic Arts’ Star Wars’ games as a ‘sinking ship’ – but it’s way past the peak of its popularity. You can see that without even logging into the game to check it out. When the game’s official Twitter account announced that ‘Onslaught,’ the seventh expansion pack, will be released in September 2019, the response was less than enthusiastic. The Tweet failed to reach a thousand likes, had barely over two hundred re-tweets, and a little over one hundred comments. All in all, it doesn’t suggest that there’s a massive base of players out there, waiting to seize on the new content and jump back in. Given the declining numbers, we’re faced with a question. Is ‘Onslaught’ an…

Characters I’d Like to See Introduced or Brought Back in Onslaught

The SWtOR community has been buzzing recently about the new details regarding the “play what you want, how you want” gearing system that is Spoils of War. While I, too, have been caught up in the whirlpool of hype (and confusion), I am choosing to wait until we actually get to see this new stuff in-action on the PTS before I offer my thoughts on it here.Instead today I’m turning my attention to something I care about far more than gear, and that’s the in-game story characters. I’ve been thinking a great deal about who I’d like to see, either brought back or introduced for the first time, on Onderon and Mek-Sha and I just thought “hey, why not make a post about it?”Obviously, some characters are a given. Darths Krovos and Malgus, Empress Acina, General Daeruun, Jonas Balkar, Major Anri, Moff Pyron, NR-O2, Tau Idair, and Vowrawn are all definitely going…

Here is the patch note for that: Quote: Galactic Starfighter matchmaking has been improved to better account for player experience along with their currently selected ship loadout. Prior to 5.9.2 the match maker would build a game around the player who had been in the queue the longest. It would then try to add players with a similar loadout score (Loadout score being based around the best ship…
