  • cheaters ? What kind of cheats ?)

    • Principal of Knibb High School

      The kind like my wife who is a dirty, dirty tramp.

  • Darth Twinge

    sounds like i should have rolled an alt named “dretcher”

    • Hugh Jorgan

      Lol

  • Darth Ji’inx

    A non-HK themed reward O.O

    • Darth Twinge

      Looks like it might actually be a new model too. 😀

      • Darth Ji’inx

        O.O

    • Sean Bigley

      Wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

  • Phillip Chappell

    I hope Shhae join us a companion. i know it shot dark heck 13 had two companions. anyword on alliance recruitmwent missions

    • Darth Ji’inx

      Just Torian.

      • Phillip Chappell

        still not bad..he wasnt bad. hardly use melee companion outside jedi or siith

  • MayTheFailBeWithYou

    “Had some connection issues yesterday (error 308) but it was resolved quickly.”

    If by quickly you mean taking 12 hours to fix a problem that shouldn’t have occurred in the first place, then job well done Biofail… However, my definition of “quickly” is a lot shorter than 12 hours.

    • dave jones

      11 hours?

      • Kaelin

        it should be 10

    • Bastardodcadena

      fix problem 12 hours??? take like 40 hours in my case..

  • Klhosczinsckhy

    What the!
    “Eternal Empire Patroller Speeder”

    Why not “HK-themed Eternal Empire Patroller Speeder”?
    Huh?!

    • Darth Twinge

      don’t encourage them XD

    • AbnerDoon

      You need to see the screen shot from the bottom HK is the chassis.

  • John Kosto

    Cool music yay

  • Klhosczinsckhy

    Load Lifter is way cooler than the wannabe X-Wing and the WoW-Beast.

    • Darth Ji’inx

      You’ve got it right.

  • Sarigar

    Yayyyy Broonmark! I know I’m one of the few Broonies in SWTOR fandom (or the only one), but that don’t matta, cuz our bloody-taloned hero is coming back!

    • Naq
    • Sean Bigley

      maybe I can ask him qyzen, Usar, and bowdarr to grab one of skadges limbs and pull….dark I know but if there was ever one who deserved it

    • Paulo Gomes

      I’ve been thinking about these “beast companions”… Maybe I’ll take one of my toons and exclusively use them… Then I’ll use the “Beastmaster” title that I could never find a use for… 🙂

  • BrianDavion

    Broonmark? I main a SW and even I’m not excited

  • Seph

    It was more or less an advertisement for their current gambling pack, and the title and premise of the next companion recruiting mission.

  • Firnon Zodd

    Oh Boy, another Chapter without any Force-Sensitive companions returning [/sarcasm]

    • Joe Falittie

      And 2 more Empire companions…

      Companions back thru Story/Recruit as of 4.4

      Pub:5
      Emp:8

      • Anoymous

        Yes, how DARE Bioware not bring back more lame, forgettable NPCs from lame Republic class stories!

        • gua543

          Lol, like Xalek, Scorpio and that murderous furball Broonmark are so, so interesting.

          • Exandrus

            Don’t forget about the Khem stand-in!

        • Gonadius

          I found most the class stories to be forgettable. By which I mean I’ve forgotten the details of all of them.

        • John Kosto

          Wow what an idiotic opinion.

  • Dawg2006

    Huh looks like nothing worth a crap… So glad I left this sinking ship… So tired of the boring story only content…

    • Lindz

      And yet…..here you are.

      • EyesOfGehenna .

        Some people have a hard time getting over their exes…

      • Rompe Himself

        Nothing wrong with checking out the latest info even if you are not subbed. Dulfy is taking one for all of us by staying on top of the latest *ahem* content and news so that those of us who unsubbed, can stay in the loop or should the day ever come Bioware gets their shit together (Yeah I know, highly unlikely. At this point, they are just trying to bleed the player base left for all it can with minimal effort), then those of us who have been unsubbed for a while can jump back into it.

        • Hugh Jorgan

          Dulfy is taking one for all of us? How the hell do you know she’s taking one for us? That implies she doesn’t like the game. Speak for yourself not her you trash.

          • Rompe Himself

            *Sigh*. Reading not your forte huh Hugh? Ok, take note of the following I wrote:

            “Nothing wrong with checking out the latest info even if you are not
            subbed. Dulfy is taking one for all of us by staying on top of the
            latest *ahem* content and news so that those of us who unsubbed……”

            Now if you would kindly step back from being the keyboard warrior 9000 you think you are, you will notice that what I wrote related firstly in response to Lindz who commented on how despite Dawg2006’s hatred of SWTOR, here he was checking and commenting regardless to which I pointed out in my comment how there is nothing wrong with those of us who unsubbed coming to Dulfy to read up on the latest and thanks to her (Hence taking one for us so we don’t need to stay subbed to keep in the loop) still playing it (subbed or not), we get to stay unsubbed but still read up on all the latest info until which time we think Bioware has done enough to bring us back or not.

            So nope Hugh Keyboard Warrior 9000 Jorgan, never claimed to speak for Dulfy nor stated she liked nor disliked the game and never would. But I am pretty sure she doesn’t need you white knighting either on a point you invented in your chump change head but that is neither here nor there.

            Bottom line – Thanks to Dulfy still being in the game, those of us who unsubbed can stay unsubbed but stay in the loop.

            • Hugh Jorgan

              Saying she’s “taking one for all of us” IS implying that she doesn’t enjoy the game and is just playing it to keep people informed. “Taking one for all of us” is not an enjoyable thing, if you like doing whatever it is it’s not ” taking one for all of us” *Shock* maybe she enjoys the game.

              You say shit like ” I am not going to be a jackass like you and try to force you to agree with me or insult you for not agreeing with me. I respect your opinion, don’t agree with it but again to each their own.” and yet here you are being a jackass! The first line of your response is in fact you being a jackass.

              Bottom line – anyone who doesn’t doesn’t agree with you is a BioDrone shit eater.
              You are a fucking hypocrite.

              • Sean Bigley

                Clearly he doesn’t understand the pecking order 😉

        • Sean Bigley

          oh look another self righteous “this game is shit because I think so” what are the Odds? 🙂

          • abaddonsmummy

            Same guy methinks….

          • Rompe Himself

            *Shock* And look here, yet another Bioware shit eating drone who thinks anyone that doesn’t love SWTOR the way he does is “self righteous”. See what I did there? Funny that you should raise that point and yet take issue with me because I don’t think the same as you. Sorry clown shoes but everyone is entitled to an opinion and despite not agreeing with yours, I am not going to be a jackass like you and try to force you to agree with me or insult you for not agreeing with me. I respect your opinion, don’t agree with it but again to each their own. Yup, It’s that easy!! 🙂

            • branmakmuffin

              ” I am not going to be a jackass like you and […] insult you for not agreeing with me.”

              You just did.

      • Whitedragon

        LOL!

      • Dawg2006

        So I’m not allowed to keep up with a game I quit playing? I’m hoping that maybe they will add something worth coming back to, but I have zero hope that will happen…

    • Elitist Sean Connery

      You’re the man now, Dawg2006!

  • pokedigijedi

    wow the Jedi Knight, Consular, and Smuggler classes are feeling very lonely right now. (so far they’ve only gotten to re-unlock 1 companion from their respective story lines each)

    • Darth Ji’inx

      Based on datamined info, there are future Alliance missions to recruit Rusk, Zenith, and Guss. That’s it for Republic companions in Season 1.

      • xking5v

        no elara dorne ? no kira ? that is complete bullshit if that stands

        • xking5v

          and risha, almost all female republic romanced companions

          • Decimal

            Same for empire female romance options (except Vette, but a warrior could have chosen Jaesa instead – and she is absent).

            • Adam C Wright

              Jaesa’s mail said she found someone ‘new’ that is the center of her world. Not sure she’s coming back anytime soon.

              • gua543

                I haven’t romanced Jaesa but even if I had, I wouldn’t be surprised by that mail. I mean, she’s a sith just for the lulz.

          • Adam C Wright

            Rish should have been working with Vette and Gault. She’s a thief and was childhood friends with Vette.

        • Simon Cleal

          No Kira *sob*

        • Darth Ji’inx

          This is for Season 1. I’m assuming that Season 2 will bring back the remaining romance companions. Hopefully.

      • pokedigijedi

        oh really? cool 🙂

        • Darth Ji’inx

          Torian (Chapter XIV): June
          Broonmark: June
          Guss: TBA
          Zenith: TBA
          Rusk/Skadge (same mission): TBA

      • Sean Bigley

        with the way the story is progressing do you think they plan to do one massive alliance recruitment fest at the end of the first season?

        • Darth Ji’inx

          Currently, there are 3 more chapters left in Season 1 and 4 more recruitment missions. Next month, we get one of each, meaning that there will still be 2 chapters and 3 missions. Maybe they’ll double up for the last chapter of Season 1?

          • Sean Bigley

            Possibly, I thought one time when I was pursuing the datamined stuff I saw ashara’s name pop up. Or is that just me?

            • Darth Ji’inx

              Just you :/

              • Sean Bigley

                Bummer. Oh well, my favorite fallen jedi will find her way home eventually :3

              • Darth Ji’inx

                I wouldn’t say fallen. Maybe gray? If you romance Ashara, then her mail at the beginning of KotFE says she’s abandoned the Jedi and Sith. I’m guessing this means that she’s a neutral force user now.

                I just hope she isn’t indoctrinated into the Knights of Zakuul O.O

              • Sean Bigley

                Mmn. True….although I wouldn’t mind being able to use, or have a comp even, who could use those Saber spears

              • Darth Ji’inx

                If they made them, I’m assuming Xalek, Jaesa, and Kira could use them. Maybe Vector if they made a tech version.

      • BrianDavion

        boy, I know the devs have a ahrd on for the empire, but can they be more subtle about ijt?

      • Exandrus

        All companions I really hope I have the opportunity to eject out the airlock.

      • iceberg265

        No Kira no subscription.

  • GSF4Lyfe

    “Double XP, legacy XP, Warzoner Comms, and Space PVP Requisition” but no GSF content? Nothing even mentioned for years? No thank you.

    • Lumi

      Sorry, as much as I wanted GSF to be a new Rogue Squadron or Battlefront 2, there just aren’t enough people playing it and those that do just aren’t as vocal as the general PvP population. I doubt GSF will go the way of Ilum or Outlaw’s Den, as it is still going to have people that want to play it. I am sure if original Ilum had actually worked people would still be doing dailies there. At least GSF works 😛

      • iceberg265

        There were plenty of people playing it, till they stopped supporting it. Kinda like they did for PvP, then Operations, then FPs.

  • Baldarhion Martelsoleil

    Wait… Just imagine that Valkorion departed just to tell Shae Vizla to begin a new mandalorian invasion ? Wooow, Second chance 😀 ?

  • Whitedragon

    Yep

  • Darth-Robin

    so will chapter 14 with the mandos also perfectly and in detail explain what happend to the previous mandalore if not then fail chapter and where is akaavi ? she is a mandalorian aswell or is bioware gonna favor empire again

    • fsadfsac

      It’s in the datamined content and it’s shite. Shae is a pushover compared to Mandalore the Vindicated.

      • BrianDavion

        reallyu? does Shae run around inducting people into Mandalorian society without teaching them a bloody thing? Mandalore the vindicated was a HORRIABLE Mandalore. all talk, no action.

        • fsadfsac

          Well I don’t know about Mandalorian society but, she was easy enough to beat in Blood Hunt, of course that’s no indication of her strength but it kind of still paints her in a meager position. The main point though is that Artus Lok has never been bested and he’s been with us since chapter 2 in vanilla, since 2011, and they’re ditching him out in an unspectacular way. Perhaps he is still a bad Mandalorian though I wouldn’t know, but even so the first runner up to the position of Mandalore would be the Bounty Hunter if you chose to become a Mandalorian, not Shae who is as old as Artus and also beaten.

          • BrianDavion

            the bounty hunter was eaither dead, frozen in a slab of carbonite or just missing. hardly in a position to lead. furthermore, just because you can beat someone in a flashpoint doesn;t mean they suck. it means your character is JUST THAT GOOD

  • gua543

    Y u no Akaavi?

  • Sadriel_Fett

    Very cool.

  • Deshik

    Sorry for showing up this unrelated music link but I would like to ask for your opinion on the track that I created. 🙂 http://www.newgrounds.com/audio/listen/682412

  • Trumpcat

    I’m beginning to think that I’m quite stupid. That is because I keep coming to check the livestreams wondering if I would see any hint of new MMO content in the works. Instead it’s always talk about armor sets and cutscenes. So I must be stupid doing the same thing.
    (And if anyone plans to jab at me about what’s “MMO content”, don’t, because I will destroy you.)

    • emperorbear

      jab

      • Trumpcat

        Is that all? Very low energy.
        But yeah, a bit silly they don’t even mention group content.

        • Dr. Mike Wendell

          There’s a lot of things that they don’t mention.

          What do you expect from 3 guys who can’t figure out how to use their own email system? (Ben and Eric have been sending me blank emails concerning my recent filing of arbitration. I have no idea who this Charles person is.)

          • Whitedragon

            🙂

          • Shawn Hargrave

            ….

    • Kitempenphynupsel

      They changed the livestreams from watching Musco playing a new chapter to something even more pointless.

      I think we watch these streams to make sure the dev team is still alive and not laying dead unter the desk in Austin and nobody noticed it.

      • Shawn Hargrave

        lol

    • Whitedragon

      you’re right Trumpcat.. the game is for casual players, soccer moms and people who have the wii u console. Hard core mmo’s are out it seems. 🙁

      • Dr. Mike Wendell

        Soccer moms don’t play this game. I work for a webhosting company that caters to soccer moms and they won’t come near this game. Some of them are die hard Star Wars fans too and most of them still cry over what happened to SWG eons ago. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve been begged to set up an SWG emulator for them and their families but I just don’t have that kind of time..,

        • Whitedragon

          I’m told Soccer Moms won’t come near you!

      • Casual Soccer Mom

        You mean the “hard core mmo’s” that nobody ever wanted to play, which is why they never existed in the first place?

        • Whitedragon

          Why do you say they never existed?

    • branmakmuffin

      Go ahead and point us to an objective definition of “MMO content,” then. If you don’t like the direction TOR is taking, fair enough, but that’s as far as it goes.

      • iceberg265

        Raids, new flashpoints, more than 1 pvp map every 4 years. Anything besides recycled small group content that you can solo and/or ran 2-3 years ago. Hell I would even count and take new GSF content.

        • Viilax

          If you only like the game for the ops and pvp, then this is the wrong game for you.

          • R315r4z0r

            Well I like the game for everything. I like the content they are putting out… but the vast majority of everything else in the game is sorely lacking.

          • iceberg265

            It didn’t used to be. Hence why my sub that was active uninterrupted since launch has been canceled since December.

      • Trumpcat

        Alright, but I will need your help getting there. Can you please tell why do you play an MMO game?

  • Whitedragon
    • Paulo Gomes

      I seriously doubt that anyone is a bigger fan of Star Wars than me. Equal, that’s fine, but bigger I don’t think so.

      Having said that, I WILL NEVER PUT MY MONEY ON ANOTHER STAR WARS GAME DONE BY EA. I don’t care if they bring back SWG and pay me to play it lol… Bioware is not the issue here, I’ve said it countless times. Bioware has delivered highest rate RPG’s for most of their time as a video game studio. I love those games, they’re a part of my gaming experience since my teens.

      Electronic Arts… I’ll pass on that one tyvm…

      • Whitedragon

        This game was awesome back in the day. “Never say Never”

        • Paulo Gomes

          The operative word being: “was”…

          • Whitedragon

            was EA involved from the beginning?

            • Paulo Gomes

              Sure they were. But THEN came the lay-offs, people leaving BW, writers, programmers being re-assigned, you name it… Nothing new, just the way EA usually buries smaller studios… It’s their “modus operandi”… I’ve posted this before, have a read…

              • Whitedragon

                Okay , i wasn’t sure.. seems like a life time ago i was spending 18 hrs a day leveling my first character. 🙂 (lost job, lost girlfriend, etc) LOL!

              • Adam hard on

                Lets be honest . Lost Girlfriend? I am sorry i don’t believe you.
                at most you miss jerking off in your mom’s undies draw.

              • Whitedragon

                How would you know that? you must do it yourself. (your poor mother)

              • Adam hard on

                Wow ,awesome come back. I got burned.hahaha

              • Whitedragon

                yes you did 🙂

              • Adam hard on

                Well, it wasn’t. Just go back to your blow up doll, you can keep her ever.

              • Whitedragon

                D’oh!

              • Adam hard on

                Wow wow wow . Get a life.

              • Whitedragon

                put down the pipe bro

              • adam hard on

                Is that what you say to your dad.
                Nice bro

                You…. realise your trying to out meme whitedragon right? He has a meme for everything xD you have no hope

              • adam hard on

                You have no hope if lossing weight , cause you win the pie eating contest.

              • Sean Bigley

                and you have no hope of gaining brain cells cause both your parents were alchoholics. you see? I can play the stupid insults game too

              • adam hard on

                Well, it is not stupid. It is real, look in the mirror you fat fuck.

              • Sean Bigley

                oh, you wound me so. tell me, how long did you spend thinking up another fat joke? half a day? a whole day? your originality astounds me. if yoru going to sling petty insults at least have the decency to log on to an actual account and say them to my face you cowardly waste of oxygen.

              • Shawn Hargrave

                LOL

              • Adam C Wright

                It’s still awesome and the KOTFE story is great. If you don’t like it, that’s your problem. It feels like a true continuation of the universe created in KOTOR 1 and 2. I play bioware games for the story and right now I’m loving the fact they are focusing on the story. Couldn’t give two shits about raids or pvp.

              • Paulo Gomes

                Cool. More power to you.

              • John Kosto

                Oh wow, the KOTFE story is far from awesome. It was pretty good in the first few chapters, now it’s just ok. The game is most definitely not awesome anymore. I wish it was because I still play. Running out of things to do unfortunately.

                KOFTE story is awful.
                Biggest shoehorn pile of bantha crap ever.
                Breaks character immersion at every turn.
                There’s not one class (light or dark) that you can take through KOTFE and not find a chapter that has your toon doing something they would never do.
                8 classes + 1 linear story = crap.

              • Viilax

                None of that is true. Though for the love of god they need more Force Chapters. Though everyone had a fit when they just included one when there’s been live 5 chapters focused on non force-users. It’s ridiculous.

              • Eban

                None of that is true?
                Are you high?
                What class can you take through the KOTFE story that does not break character immersion?
                You tell me the character and I’ll tell you which chapter your toon would not do.
                Light side jedi wont help kaliyo plant bombs around a city.
                Dark side sith isnt helping jorgan rescue people.

                Oh and for force chapters. The entire kotfe story is for force characters. Playing a non force class in this shoehorn story just feels out of place.

              • Paulo Gomes

                Yep… But that aside, if you like or dislike the story or the way it’s being delivered… I mean, it’s important, but for me that’s not the issue. That’s a matter of opinion, although I tend to agree with yours…

                My problem is: what the hell do I do when the story FINISHES??? What’s really the endgame here (pun intended). There is NO NEW ENDGAME! It’s the same old Ops, thank God the pvp’ers got a new map… But honestly what am I supposed to do in the game? Run endless Heroics so I can buy new shinnies in the CM? I can understand relatively new players being in awe of the game, hell I know I was, back in the day… But right now there’s not much to do… Not even a freaking new daily to farm reputation.

                As far as the story goes… The best time I’ve been having in the game is having all the toons I made under one “banner”. The same server for all of them, thanks to the character cap increase. The original 8 stories is where I’ve been having the most fun, revisiting stories I had forgotten the details of. THAT’S epic storytelling for ya…

              • Eban

                Totally agree with you Paulo.
                Endgame is zero.
                And taking multiple toons through KOTFE will be a nightmare.
                Sod that idea.

              • Shawn Hargrave

                the problem is that the kotfe story is pointless they make a huge deal that your the save all to the universe while bieng a puppet to the emperor who could kill his kids just by thinking about it if he wanted to then your thrown into creating a clone army of comps that you dont need in the first place all for what to run a mediocre at best heroic a million times over for more cookie cutter comps lol and lets not forget the rehashing of your old comps bieng to sold to you as new content yeah i dont think so….

              • Paulo Gomes

                Force sensitive chapters… The WHOLE EXPANSION is based around Force sensitive stuff… We somehow all become Force sensitive thanks to none other than the Emperor himself… Do you remember a Mandalorian being Force sensitive? That’s just great, one of the greatest rival factions of the Jedi are now Force sensitive… REALLY immersive… Epic storytelling… Yeah right…

                You know why? Because it’s ONE STORYLINE! Just one. Because they are TOO LAZY to do what they had done at the beginning of the game. And please don’t start saying it’s not possible, it’s too much work, it couldn’t be done… Fact is, it was done, it is possible. Every time someone rolls a non-insta lv 60 toon they are CONFRONTED with that fact.

                And another thing people nowadays seem to forget: “back in the day” we were able to do the story with a friend, or more than a friend, and the game wouldn’t collapse on itself… Try that now. Even better, try doing it with SoR. I did. Had to do it solo because me and a friend had so many problems we would have wound up doing the expansion twice… Per toon…

              • Kitempenphynupsel

                Yes. But the people leaving took a unfinished game engine, that goes carzy if there are more than 10 people in one instance, spaghetti coded some stuff to it and said: oh shit and ran away.

            • Kitempenphynupsel

              Yes. They threw a pile of money at BioWare.

        • Viilax

          It still is awesome. But people will whine about anything. ‘Back then’ the same people cried about the game that are crying today. Suck it up and move on. No one cares If I like the game and no one cares If you don’t like it. Either play or don’t. But dissing it for no reason doesn’t accomplish anything.

          • pt4life

            game kinda sucks now with no New end game operations going on 18+ months now.. but thats just my personal opinion and why i havent subbed for awhile now

      • Kitempenphynupsel

        BioWare is no longer BioWare. It’s just a trademark name for one of EA’s developer studios.

        And BioWare (the original crew) made a really big mistake when starting SWTOR in game engine choice. A mistake so big, you should never forget they created this mess!

        • Paulo Gomes

          That is a fact. I never said BW were perfect though…

        • chads

          You don’t know who’s choice it was to get that engine; it could have been forced on Bioware by EA because it was relatively cheap, for example

      • Shawn Hargrave

        bioware is just a name plate on a building EA guts all its companys it buys and guts them into nothing look at sim city fuck ea

    • Don Loco

      Very curious indeed.

      • Whitedragon

        Could be something good coming down the pike

        • Darth-Robin

          its EA bro it will be filled with day 1 dlc to make the game playable

          • Whitedragon

            ya most likely

  • User560

    “Chapter will have somecool music”

    Really? Thats the marketing message? This is a new low and sounds desperation….

    • Shawn Hargrave

      lol

    • j’oe

      a new version of the already juiced-enough-everywhere binary sunset. CAN’T WAIT!

  • HK55 Inspired Subscriber Gift

    Seems like Torian will use a sniper blaster instead of a electrostaff now.

    • iowaboynca

      somebody has to use the HK sniper rifle

      • CraigMitchell

        HK51/55? SCORPIO? Jorgan even?

        • Imber

          At least Jorgan makes sense, he is described as sniper in his files, also speaks of being sniper in his personal story.

          • Sean Bigley

            to be fair, torian does mention using a rifle in several of his convos, hell on makeb one of his quotes while exploring is something like “I should’ve brought my rifle!: or something along those lines. And, honest question to people. If he does have a sniper rifle is that so bad? Honestly finding an electrostaff for him gets difficult after a while.

    • Hugh Jorgan

      There goes my personal Dark Honor Guard.

  • The Absolute Madman

    Broonmark recruitment mission more like achieve rank 10 with Broonmark by doing trivial bullshit

    Also if Shae and Torian’s armor don’t come with jetpacks (assuming the jetpack works unlike the relentless hunter’s jetpack that fires off a jet upwards into the tube) I’m gonna further forsake this game’s taste in outfits

    • Darth Ji’inx

      Wrong, the Broonmark mission will be more like the style used for Xalek. Just exploring and a bossfight.

      • John Kosto

        So…. trivial bullshit :’)

        • CraigMitchell

          If you got better ideas, tell them to BioWare.

          • Hugh Jorgan

            Johns’s point is that Madman said the Broonmark quest would be doing trivial bullshit, then Jinx said “Wrong….just exploring” which is trivial bullshit. Hes just saying that Jinx is saying Madman is wrong when he is actually saying the exact same thing.

            • Sean Bigley

              Problem is he’s being an arse about it

                …. I have no words for how stupid you are

          • John Kosto

            Considering that they completely ignore what the players want from the game all the time, I won’t waste my time. You make sure that you keep on playing and praising whatever they release.

          • Bastardodcadena

            i told bioware my ideas… they never answer me

      • Viilax

        I’m just excited that he’s back. Easily my favorite Warrior Comp.

    • CraigMitchell

      It seems like Shae will have the same armor like she had before, so it should have a backpack. As for Torian, just do what I do: The first time you get him as a comp in the Chapter, just give him some different armor.

    • Mike

      I too hate those recruitment alerts where one must to collect something grindy to achieve 10th lvl of affection just like Qyzen’s mission or Blizz’s.
      HK-55’s, Xalek’s and Ak’ghal Usar’s missions were imho better.

      • Bastardodcadena

        qyzen mission wasnt soo bad

    • Hugh Jorgan

      Why does he need a jet pack? He’s never had one.

  • iceberg265

    Finally a good subscriber reward…Too bad there is still not even a whiff of new Operations so I won’t be subscribing to get it.

    • NeverMore

      …and I care about you subscribing… why?

      • iceberg265

        Because I really want to love and support this game again. Or more importantly I want it to be worth my love and support again.

    Ranked PvP – Taking aggressive actions against cheaters and win traders.
    what happen here?

    • You are asking seriously ? like that : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xdl8YxWhMbM

      • John Fisher

        To be honest i dont do rank pvp, so i.am unsure what is win traders. How they cheat in pvp that is all

        • yea look on video thats cheating (fliyng near your opponents when round isnt start yet). Wintrading means that : when 1 man from opposite team is leaving from the match or nothing doing (let you win). Most ppl from wintrades have friends on opposite site or using another account to do that to incrase rating. Hope you understood that bad english 🙂

          • John Fisher

            Perfect. Thank you

      • Whitedragon

        Only one thing to do with that guy!

        • I saw 3 ppl like him. They ruin my (not only mine) rating but I cant do anything in that case (more then raport)…

          • Whitedragon

            if they’re paying their playing, no matter how much they ruin the game of others.

      • Yallida

        It’s sad that peeps are such d*ckheads and cheating. Brainless monkeys notnig more.But as I know most of the community on this game their gonna start defend and moan about all of that poor cheaters just because they don’t know how to play and achive anything without cheats :/ Really sad thing 🙁

        • Vendrine

          On the contrary, i dont think ive seen a single person defend the pvp cheaters.

          • Yallida

            I hope you’re right

    • Shawn Hargrave

      true but what the deal breaker for me was no objective based open world pvp fuck that warzone shit i want large scale pvp battles

      • chads

        large-scale pvp battles, with the Hero engine? ahahahahahaha good one

        • Shawn Hargrave

          LOL yeah why i left hehe

  • Whitedragon

    I gave up PVP a long time ago because of all the cheating. it will never end. ” so sayeth the shepherd so sayeth the flock”

    • Viilax

      Not to mention almost all pvpers are pricks.

      • Whitedragon

        HA!

      • Kaelin

        Agree, pvpers and their bullsh*t. Wonder why can`t they enjoy their favorite content without being a**holes (real life problems and they cool only in game?). The good thing, I got my valor armor set and companion and was done with pvp. Let them bullsh*t each other

        • GSF4Lyfe

          Because pve-ers are totally royalty and are never, ever elitist. It’s a two-way street

          • Kaelin

            pve-ers can`t ruin your sweet time like pvpers do. Not sure about you but for people who don`t have a raid team ready to play with them pvpers are ruining quests and some events. Do they need to ruin your quests? Not they don`t but they are doing it anyway because they can (or because they are bullied in real life) and they are calling you names because they beat you 2+ on 1. Unlike most of them I do have a life and I can`t wait for hours for them to get bored of me and finally let me do my quests. And I`m not even starting to talk about about open pvp games

            • Darth-Robin

              are you dumb?
              pve players can be even nastier and pve players can ruin your ”sweet” time even more then pvp players if 1 thing goes wrong or if you dont skip cutscenes

              besides pvp players cant ruin your precious single player garbage anyway its all instanced same goes for the pve/pvp focus crap.

              and bullies eh guess you got bullied alot then back in school if you gonna use that word
              name calling isnt against the tos and if you get offended by a random dude over the internet in a game then clearly video games specially MMO’s arent for you.

              cheers.

              • Kaelin

                here goes name calling…. Not wasting time for the rest of your rant

            • Paulo Gomes

              Thing is, every time you need to do something that involves playing with other people there’s a chance they can ruin your playing experience. That’s not exclusive to pvp, it happens A LOT in Ops and Flashpoints too. You just gotta roll with the punches, and realize there are good people out there too. You will find assholes in all walks of life, that’s not exclusive to MMO’s either lol…

              • Kaelin

                I`m talking only about MMO`s here and refuse to talk about anything else because everything else (other games, real life, etc) should not forse people ruin everyone else good time. My problems are mostly with pvpers because my healers (my fav role) can save a day most of times in group pve content. Most pvpers are like “Hey! Look at me, I`m so amazing! I play so-so much and so-so good with pvp! I have my friends with me! And you all alone here, we will ruin your mmo evening and your quests! It will be so much fun because we have a lot of time, we are gaming 24/7 and have nothing better to do”, seriously I don`t see it much from pve-ers

              • Paulo Gomes

                Oh you heal??? Omg, you gotta have a really thick skin for that my friend, I know it from personal experience. It’s always the healers fault, isn’t it? Nevermind if the tank can’t hold aggro, if the dps are absolutely going crazy and don’t even give you time to recuperate between fights… Tell you what I do: at the first sign of aggravation I quit. Simple as that. I understand you not wanting to talk about anything other than MMO’s, but I get enough stress from normal, “afk” life, I don’t need it in a game! Just quit, wait for another group, and most of all be patient and polite to other people, even if you quit. EVEN if they are not polite to you. That’s what I do anyways…

              • Kaelin

                Well, I agree with you. Quiting is a best way to deal with it 🙂 Its really a shame the next time to play may come weeks later. May be you are more lucky, its just it usually pvpers who getting in my way, its not often but annoying for sure

              • GSF4Lyfe

                “Hey! Look at me, I`m so amazing! I play so-so much and so-so good with
                pvp! I have my friends with me! And you all alone here, we will ruin
                your mmo evening and your quests! It will be so much fun because we have
                a lot of time, we are gaming 24/7 and have nothing better to do”

                I see the same thing with pve-ers parading around both faction fleets with their wings of the architect mount. Well I used to, when it was new. Same thing: “Hey! Look at me, I’m so amazing! I play so-so much and I’m so-so good with pve that I have this great mount! And you can’t have it! So look at me, and my mount, on the fleet! And my gear! My guild and I are gaming 24/7 and have nothing better to do”

                I really don’t see a difference. “I don’t see it much from pve-ers” but you DO see it. Thanks for proving my point that pve-ers are not innocent. “pve-ers are not innocent” was solely my point, by the way. Don’t gloss over it next time.

              • Kaelin

                Well, we can talk only about ourselves, don’t you think so? For me pvpers are most annoying of them all. Anyway how pve -ers “parading around both faction fleets with their wings of the architect mount” can ruin your gameplay? Or they can somehow ruin your event quests by just using pve shiny stuff?

              • Kaelin

                We can speak only for ourselves, don`t you think so? And I`m really missing the point with shiny pve stuff, how people showing it off can ruin your gameplay and your quests?

  • Viilax

    I will only say this, they need more Force-based chapters and they need to make longer chapters. Waiting a month for a story that takes about an hour to finish is hardly a fair trade-off. Hopefully though we can chose who’s going to be Mandalore. (I know It’ll probably be Shae, but I find her really illogical. Then again…most mandos are.) I am a little concerned about the choice mechanics, since I’m pretty sure the devs said you could kill whoever disobeyed your orders in the last chapter when all you got to do was “Exile” them without even getting Dark side points.

    • Kai

      I second this. Being a sub and having to wait a month at a time to play a simple story line is absurd. I recently got chapter 13 done is like 30-45 minutes. After, it’s like, what the hell am I suppose to do now? Pve/Pvp is boring. I would rather continue playing to get back the characters that were taken. Still irritates me a little how they made us get the old companions up only to take them away and have us doing stupid little quests for them.

      • Kai

        To get back in their good graces. {lol apparently it cut me off..}

      • pt4life

        its callled baited subscriptions.. they say they give out sub rewards.. but not all of them get to players as well as they just plain and simple suck…. they want ppl to sub to enjoy the story.. but simply put for me the story sucks and is boring AF. predictable, and wait for it…. SOLO!!! adding Solo only content to an MMO and baiting subs for the story is just obsurd.. i am truly surprised people are actually falling for this and still subbing. To each their own.

      • Shawn Hargrave

        its called rehashed content and lazyness if you want to play the story should just wait till its all done pay 15 bucks 1 time if your gonna do it all

    • CraigMitchell

      Only exile them? I got 3 options:
      1. Don’t do it again (+ LS points)
      2. You’re exiled. Forever.
      3. I can’t have you sabotaging my operations again [Kill] (+ DS points)

    • Bastardodcadena

      more force-based chapters??? really???
      you create your lightsaber or conversation pistol with trooper is not enough force-based chapters???

      • Viilax

        Yes, they literally had one only force chapter. Whereas there have been several non force-user chapters. That one was a good start; but there need to be many more.

      Or maybe weare bored to death doing same things over and over again… We would like to see new ops or even flashpoint because this rescaling stuff is already boring as hell… Cheers to your friends… LoL

        Yes, because an argument is valid when you add “lol” to the end of it. Sorry bro. I’m still having fun with the game, and so is ZipNyon. You’re not gonna ruin that for me.

        • Yallida

          Ok it’s good for you if you have fun playing ToR but why you offend something like 85% community of this game who are not satisfied enough at the moment of this game? And why you offend them? Just because we want play real MMO (which is exactly what we paid for) not easy, boring as hell single player story content online with co-op mode? Really? Oh bro you have no idea how much I fell sorry for you for your selfish attitude to others. Because you are living proof that SWToR is no longer MMO…

    • kirk

      seeing how we’ve had the same ops for years now… there really is no endgame outside of PVP and that got old.. years ago.. maybe u just didn’t complete End game content when it was level so you dont mind.. but those of us who’ve been grinding NiM since the EC days, the end game is just non existent at this point if you already done it all in the past. Hence why most of the Better Raiders have long left the game and moved onto to other things, only occasionally coming back to play

      • Phase

        I 100% Agree with you, I have been grinding NiM Since the EV/KP NiM days (though those don’t really count) and further to the EC days, Raiders definitely want new places, new bosses with new unique mechanics not re-scaled bosses to the level at the game is currently at. It’s nice to bring old content back to being relevant but that is irrelevant in a time without any new content. Also having come back recently in December and playing the game is in a pretty bad state for end-game unless you’re a casual and love doing story mode crap or the occasional hardmode like EV/KP specially when it’s highlighted, which is another mistake that is made. Game can’t even compete with FFXIV or WoW that has new raiding end-game all the time. It’s sad I use to love progression in this game when the new raids dropped. Ahh well. What can you do but be a casual now.

    • Trumpcat

      Me, along with 11 people from my guild, quit, tired of the single player mmo. I do consider them friends. And we play another MMO together. So there’s that.

      • vexx

        what mmo is that? :p

      • Critika

        welcome to the club 😀 the free club

      • Bennett A Sawyer

        yes what mmo is that – as I left swtor myself when my interest had run out. I had been with the game since launch and did have when I played

        • Trumpcat

          Blizzard’s. And I too have been in SWTOR since launch.

    • Paulo Gomes

      Wow, what a nice thing to say… Well, if you still feel like playing the game, good for you! Hey, I do too, if I didn’t I wouldn’t even bother coming here. But as a player since launch… Yeah, things are pretty boring. And although I still have friends in the game, all the old timers, the people I looked up to because they were PHENOMENAL players are gone, yes. Funny thing, new players now look up to ME, and I don’t consider myself a GREAT player. So either I’m having self-confidence issues, or the general level of playing in the game has decreased substantially… I’d go for the later, rather than the former…

      • Whitedragon

        you are the greatest player that ever lived

        • Paulo Gomes

          Lol… it’s not true but thx for the vote of confidence anyway 🙂

          • Whitedragon

            you’re welcome my friend

        • parkins

          Using images to prove your point is not clever. It’s just spammy at this point. BTW the guy before is actually the greatest player. At least he has common sense. People like different things. The toxic people saying that this game is dying is ruining the game for the rest of us. Sorry…

          • Whitedragon

            deal

      • Angel Cabrera

        got to admit, since KOTFE things are looking grim. what are you going to do with your million lvl 65’s once the game die’s?

        • Saratje

          Nothing, you won’t be able to log in anymore when that time eventually comes. 😛

      • Saratje

        Before you know it you’ll be writing game guides. 😉

  • IceBaby7

    ive seen win trades going on since not too long after the game launched. Still goes on today. What actions are they exactly going to take? Ban both guilds doing it, or just the players atm…? Why not just abolish the whole rank system to begin with? Other than a couple of vendor items u can receive, what is ranked pvp good for nowadays anyway? i admit a well-balanced coordinated ranked team are hard to defeat, but what good is battling em? What do u get outta it, a high pvp rank? Is there a special achievement for it, or just bragging rights?

    MEANWHILE all this talk of getting credit spammers out of the game has not worked at all. Every 2 months i see a post on “We’re working on getting rid of these spamers, blah, blah, blah” yet i see more and more spams and spam mail on not a daily basis, on an HOURLY basis. To me, id try fixing one thing bfore u guys go messing with multiple problems. No offense, but i dont think theyll solve either of those problems lol. Oh well. Trade u later!

    • Dr. Mike Wendell

      That surprises you? They fixed the “mouse going wild” issue over a year ago and many folks still have the problem, including me.

      • IceBaby7

        So youre telling me theres still in-game issues that need to be fixed that take precedent over win-trading, which is the point im making. I’m thinking we’re in agreeance ( i hope)…..

      • Ben Gimson

        Wait, so the mouse going nuts and spinning my character around is a bug with the game?

        Figured it was my mouse XD

      • Saratje

        At some point it’s no longer just the game, but also all these mouse companies having their own active driver software, rather than passive.

      Oh wait……you said get rid of spammers? I thought everyone wanted a life-like mail server and i was the only one that HATES them!

      • CraigMitchell

        $5 for 500k? Dude, that’s a tad too high.

  • Cherry Nuts

    Akaavi Spar gonna be part of this chapter? Considering 16 is the final clearly not everyone is comming back.

    • Phase

      From what I heard it was going to be Torian & Possibly Shae Vizla from CH13, the alliance alert was going to be Broonmark. Didn’t hear anything about Akaavi Sparr though.

      • Phase

        Meant CH14, rip. You know what I meant though.

    • Shadow Broker

      Asked Charles about that. He stated that since Torian is a love interest, he wanted to give each possible love interest their own spotlight/chapter. That was what he said to me at least. Take it how you will. Would post a screenshot of the conversation, but I’m too lazy. You can probably find it via Charles Twitter page.

    • Saratje

      It doesn’t end at chapter 16. Supposedly, we get a hiatus with other new content, then season 2 kicks off sooner or later(tm).

  • Cherry Nuts

    Is Akaavi Spar going to be back too?

    • Darth Ji’inx

      Not in Season 1. Torian is the last KNOWN recruit from a chapter in Season 1.

      • Xethis

        There will be a season two? Amazing! I really love the new monthly released stories. Hopefully, at the end of this season, we will be able to replay all the current chapters. (With different rewards, like data Crystals)

        • Darth Ji’inx

          I would assume there would be a Season 2 since they keep referring to Chapters I-XVI as “Season 1.”

        • Unoshi

          a total of 3 seasons

  • Whitedragon

    Akaavi Spar is a Mandalorian warrior , if she’s not in this Bioware

    • Darth Ji’inx

      Unless she appears in Chapter XVI, then she’s not in Season 1.

      • Tomato

        Okay Jinx we get it, you read the datamined files. Doesn’t mean fan’s concerns aren’t noteworthy you fuck

        • Darth Ji’inx

          That was uncalled for, Tomato. Just because I share info with people, doesn’t mean you should be a dick to me.

          • Sean Bigley

            Don’t mind him jinx. Probably just some biased minded arse whose taking out his frustrations on you. Besides, he didn’t have the guts to log onto an account and say this.

            • Chubby Chaser

              Are you that big woman in your picture?

    • Sean Bigley

      somehow I think this is the face of bioware on that matter. friggin bioware.

      • Whitedragon

        HA!

        • Ben Gimson

          That’s brilliant XD

          • Whitedragon

            🙂

  • Bastardodcadena

    I dont get it… ¿why they make Aakavi mandalorian if she isnt mandalorian in game?… Akaavi would be in that chapter.. is mandalorian.. at least in alert part of Story Chapter i guess.. But bioware says no…. because they “fired” the original writers… and new writers start storyline form 0

    • Korinthenkacker

      spoiler alert:

      Akaavi is the last surving member of a dishonoured and eliminated mandalorian Clan, why should any other mandalorian care about her?

    • Jo

      That’s a damn near incomprehensible string of words.

  • Darth Jish

    Ofc 1st and 2nd place to jedi scumbags -,-

    • CraigMitchell

  • darthz

    No ops 🙁

    • cavvider

      Don’t care.

      • John Kosto

        Clearly, that’s why you comment.

  • Whitedragon

    When interviewing for a job with bioware/swtor. The first question should be “Do you play the game” if the H1B1 guy says NO. the response should be NEXT!

    • CraigMitchell

      “H1B1”? What’s that?

      • Whitedragon

        foreign workers

        • Saratje

          Not to be confused with H0B0. 😛

  • Paulo Gomes

    Completely off topic: having serious issues with the game login. Thank the Force I managed to use the double xp to cap all my toons…

    • john fisher

      There is another double xp near end of the month too.

      • Paulo Gomes

        All done: all 24 of them are now 65… 🙂 thx for the information didn’t know that.

  • TripleAnalFuck

    So the Eternal Empire failed to put star fortresses on any other planets? Coruscant or DK didn’t seem like a good idea?

    Story written by community college graduates.

    • LaughatthePlot……holes

      Those same “community college drop outs:

      Courtney Woods

      (writer)
      also came up with how utterly dumb and inept the Eternal Empire is but want us to believe they somehow easily and systematically beat both the Republic and Empire (Yes yes they were weakened blah blah blah). Epic story this is not. Only one thing epic about KOTFE when you play it and that is how it makes you: http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/bloonsconception/images/c/cc/Facepalm_lv5.png/revision/latest?cb=20120815144528

      But how inept? Quick dirty example: When the first Star Fortress is taken down, do they think of boosting security, ships and troop numbers at the remaining fortresses like anyone with half a brain would?? Or maybe work out all CSI like how the Outlander got in the first time and fix that shit for the remaining Star Fortresses?? More guards and heavy equipment guarding the shield generators?? Maybe start working on a way to detect a stealthed ship perhaps?

      Well you are in luck. Here is the unauthorized leaked script by said writers regarding the issue. But Bioware being the cheap shits they are, didn’t put this cut scene in lest they have more bugs to ignore and more work to do. This was to take place after the first Star Fortress is destroyed:

      Replaceable Eternal Knight Captain: My Emperor, a thousand pardons for interrupting your Hayden Christensen Emo imitation training but I have just received word of the Star Fortress over being destroyed.

      Emperor Arcann: What do you mean destroyed? There was a shield around it, two bad ass Blaster Cannons at the door of the Generator station and a big scary robot guarding the Shield Generator inside.

      Replaceable Eternal Knight Captain: Umm yes that was all in place but the Outlander appears to have taken it all down along with the Star Fortress and it’s Exarch.

      Vaylin: I wish you would just admit you have OCD and not make every Star Fortress identical. You realise because you made them all identical, the Outlander now knows how to destroy the rest right?

      Emperor Arcann: Enough. I am the Emperor and I am infallible. I am too busy pouting and pretending to be scary to worry about making each Star Fortress unique or upgrading the remaining Star Fortress. The Outlander got lucky. The rest of the Fortresses are fine as is. See?? I am logging in now to check up on them. Only one was taken over and destroyed………..oh now two…….Hmmm, this Outlander is really lucky. Wait…..Three?? FOUR??? You just said three!!

      *Vaylin facepalming at this point with the Replaceable Eternal Knight Captain slowly leaving the room*

      Emperor Arcann: Hmmm, Well maybe we should boost defenses on the last…….WTF!! They are all gone??

      *Eric Musco’s voice over of “SEE???? CHOICES MATTER!!” was to be inserted as inspiration for the player at this point.*

      Emperor Arcann: Oh well, doesn’t really make any difference to the narrative, I mean my Empire. Let’s just move forward like they were never there over 5 pointless planets shall we?? Now Vaylin, does my Episode 2 or 3 Hayden need work? I want to appear really bad ass for Chapter 16, I mean when I finally have my one on one that actually culminates in a final battle with the Outlander.

      • lemon

        This is all in true Star Wars spirit. Remember the two (now actually three) Death Stars? The bad guys never learn.

        • LaughatthePlot……holes

          True enough but at least with the 3 Death stars, they kept getting bigger and bigger and at least was more heavily defended with each new Death Star. Star Fortresses – Copy and paste saves the day and screw making the surviving Fortresses better guarded.

          At least if each Fortress got harder then the last abd different mechanics, it woulf have made doing them fun……..Oops. I said a dirty word. :p

          • Darth-Robin

            FUN? BURN THIS HERETIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • Shawn Hargrave

            dont forget the new movie LOL they made the same mistake again even hahah

      • Shawn Hargrave

        the biggest plothole and joke of it all is that this “emporer” would need anyone for anything when hes capable of eating planets and all this just ruins the story he could kill his kids if he really wanted to with a thought instead his idea is round up a clone army and make you do all the work what? lolz at best they made the emporer to powerful and they cant get around the fact lol

      • Zennis

        So much nitpicking…

        • Whitedragon

          :/

      • Andhros

        Mass production is usually done to minimize production costs. It also speeds up acclimation of rotating personnel. Arcann also doesn’t seem to worry about numerical loses as he considers himself more powerful than the outlander and his forces having far superior numbers. Not to mention that retrofitting existing superstructures takes time and energy, in addition to long and arduous analysis, that is usually better devoted toward developing a superior next generation platform.

        The closest thing to a limiting factor seems to be the Exarchs, but even those don’t seem to be in short supply. The real questions are why doesn’t Arcann attempt to pacify the area with the Eternal Fleet and skytroopers? What are the time projections for establishing a replacement Star Fortress? and, Why are punitive measures delayed to nonexistent?

        Although as you stated below giving the Exarchs an increase variation in mechanics or just increasing the number of skytroopers at the base should have been a valid reaction based on real world and game world mechanics.

    • KarlSyn

      Game apparently mostly played by community college dropouts…

  • Saratje

    So maybe my LS ex-Sith gets a shot at putting Broonbroon out of his misery at long last.

  • Sadriel_Fett

    I’m hoping that “cool music” will be some sampling of Jesse Harlin’s Mandalorian themed music from the Republic Commando game. That would actually be cool.

    • BrianDavion

      I doubt that very very much

  • Turns out we get access to chapters 14 and 15 in June. Nice.
