SWTOR : PTS changes to Vandin Huttball map.

Eric Musco have informed the community that SWTOR developers will be making some changes to Vandin Huttball map. Hey folks, We are aiming to try to have a new PTS patch this week, to be deployed tomorrow. It is possible it will slip to next week, but I will let you know for sure tomorrow.

SWTOR Cartel Bazaar vendors reputation change

Eric Musco has informed the community that Bioware will be merging all the cartel bazaar vendor reputations into one come with game update 5.9.2. Here is the news: Hey folks, We wanted to address some of the questions we are seeing in this thread. As many of you in the thread already guessed, in 5.9.2 we will be combining all existing Cartel Market Reputations into one, the Underworld Exchange. Let’s talk about why we are making this change and how it will work. Why Combine the Reputations? Having all of the older Reputations wasn’t really serving a purpose anymore. Since we are direct selling most CM items and with the implementation of the Ultimate Pack we haven’t been bringing back embargoed packs. This means there is no availability for players to get these Reputations. This also creates an issue for Cartel Market Certificates since they aren’t consistent in how you acquire…

SWTOR: Revised Huttball changes

Eric Musco just updated the communnity on the upcomming changes to Huttball: Planned Warzone Changes Part 2 Hey folks, Based on all of the feedback we have been reading in this thread, we are going to be walking back some of our proposed Huttball changes along with adding a few new ones. Let’s start with what we are not doing: We will no longer apply Hinder to the ball carrier. Ball carriers will once again move at 67% move speed (down from 80%) Although we are fine with tanks being the best ball carriers while under the effects of Hinder, we hear your concerns that these changes could cause Huttball to become a stalemate too often. We are also sensitive over your feeling that certain Classes would be too limited and unable to defend themselves while carrying the Huttball, since many defensive capabilities are tied to movement abilities for several…
