What You NEED to Know about SWTOR in 2020

SWTOR is now available on Steam, as I told you about recently. Because of this, the game has been launched back into mainstream conversation. This has a lot of people wondering if they should try the game, or come back to it if it’s been years since they played. I know I’ve had a lot of Steam friends asking me about it when they see me playing. This is a great opportunity for new players to jump in, or old players to return, if you’ve been out of the scene for a while. (And if you’re still social distancing for help reasons, this can give you something else to do while you’re spending more time at home). Lore Star has done a fun video that answers the question, “Is SWTOR worth playing in 2020?” He also talks about the difference between free players and Preferred (paid) players. Check it out…

Gold Spammers Compete in a Pandemic-Swept World

Gotta make that gold, right? Well, it looks like some gold spammers are evolving to offer more than in-game currency. Check this screenshot from SWTOR: We are NOT making fun of the pandemic, but we really had to take a moment to share this with you because it’s both hilarious and alarming, depressing and ingenious (okay, maybe not go that far).
