Cory Butler tweeted a photo of a new pod racer. The art assets used for the floor are new, and look a lot like you’d expect a racing circuit’s track to look like. A few data minings ago, we found some data that seemed to be something like podracing tracks with boost pads. Could it be true?! Here is the new ride: pic.twitter.com/aBB1cPIAga — Cory Butler (@BlazeofCory) July 25, 2013 Join the forum discussion on this post

Many people, especially subscribers, have been upset about patch 2.1. People are mad about this patch  being a cartel market update only. But players are also forgetting that BioWare already announced how the coming two games updates is planed out.  Still Cory Butler  found it necessary to post on the official forums explaining what the developers have in mind.
