Bioware is partnering up with Nvidia to give out some Galaxy Story Packs.

Clarification Request; Nvidia GeForce Promotion | 12.07.2017, 07:17 PM

  • Is this only for newly registered Nvidia GeForce users or do already existing members using GeForce stand a chance as well?
  • How many packs will be given away?
  • Why are certain countries excluded?
  • Will something be done in the future for those using a different GPU?

Happy to provide some clarification!

  • There is a chance to receive a code, if you meet the criteria. Recipients are selected by Nvidia and are given out on 12/13 via a notification in GeForce Experience app. Not everyone who qualifies will receive the pack.
  • All accounts, not just new ones.
  • A lot!
  • This is due to various reasons, most commonly outlined by the countries themselves or the company running the giveaway (NVidia in this instance). If someone from a country that is not in one of NVIDIA’s participating country has a valid code, they will still be able to redeem it on swtor.com.
  • We are always looking for new promotional opportunities. Although nothing is planned right now, there is always that possibility in the future.

Hope that clears up any confusion.

  • Mike van Renterghem

    Oh dear lord this gun b gud , now that ea seems to loose money like no other they start working together with other brands ? … sounds … desperate ?

  • Old Newbie

    I already have both….what do i do then? or is this just for new people coming to the game?

    • Havik79

      You seem to have missed one key thing “for a chance”, is all it is, not you will get it, but a chance.

      • ManDingoCC6901

        It’s not much clearer in the link, but it does not mention “chance.”

        We’re giving away STAR WARS™: THE OLD REPUBLIC™ “Rule the Galaxy Story Packs” for a limited time to GeForce Experience community members! The new pack includes the epic Knights of the Eternal Throne story expansion with a Level 65 Outlander Character Token, Chiss Talon Interceptor Speeder and the Force Veteran’s Armor Set. Choose your path as a light side hero or dark side villain and fight to rule the galaxy!

          • ManDingoCC6901

            I’m just quoting what’s on the NVIDIA site. I’m as jaded as you guys with all the RNG accross everything video games these days; I expect chance is https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/59bafd4871af48305d8edd121a13bb274d0712d3222b3bcfb36e3d651b3427bb.jpg accurate, but that’s not what the thing in the link says.

            • Infernus

              It doesn’t say “ALL” or “Some” so to be honest who really knows. I would prefer an Opt-in thing to click or fill out. At least then we would know codes would go to people who want them.

          And it goes on listing what is in the pack. The phrase “for a chance” is even bolded in the dulfy post above if you look closely. So yeah, another lottery

      • Old Newbie

        My mistake. Let me try to rephrase. I’ve had both Swtor and Nvida Ge-force Experience app installed….long before this “Chance” was thought of. I was just wondering if i needed to do something else and how would i know if i won this chance.

  • fubarz

    A chance to win……Hhmmmmm…….A new Star Wars Movie…….Promotion to get new people…. Those already playing……. waiting…. waiting…….nothing…….????

  • sadpuppy

    I wonder if this promotion was originally planed for SWBF2 and was now switched to SWTOR.
    🙂

  • Mr. Wednesday

    Well, I have an NVidia car along with GeForce Experience so we’ll see if I get lucky or not. I’d prefer it if there were an actual signup for the giveaway instead of the codes being given to random people with a GeForce Experience account who might not even be remotely interested in the game. It seems like a potential waste.

    • Infernus

      Agreed! Maybe they scan to see who has SWTOR installed…I don’t know but it would definitely suck to give codes to people who would never bother installing the game

  • Ben Gimson

    ‘For a chance’

    Fuck you Biotrash, fuck you.

  • so subs dont get it ? only new players?

    • The Wilson Lootbox

      Not the first time EA has disrespected their consumers. This is done just to get more customers for them to disrespect.

      • Stop spreading misinformation.

        • The Wilson Lootbox

          Which part?

          • First in expressing/sharing the misinformation that it would only be for new accounts, which is 100% false.
            Secondary by creating the illusion that EA – as shitty as a company they may be – would run or even be responsible for this giveaway, which they are not. nVidia is holding this giveaway and is responsible for everything.

            • Ben Gimson

              “nVidia is holding this giveaway and is responsible for everything”

              Somehow I think EA has -some- say in the giveaway of items in their game…

            • The Wilson Lootbox

              I never said they were responsible for this giveaway. I was implying that someone at EA approved of this so they could get more people to try this game and in doing so ignoring the existing users (especially the ones that have been loyal to them by subscribing) and users that use different graphic cards, etc. which is a poor choice considering current events.

    • Quote from the text above:
      “You will need to log-in or create a SWTOR account in order to redeem.”

      So what makes you believe that only new players would get it!?

      • Pissinmyass

        Nishin is a well known retard.

  • Don Loco

    Desperation, it’s the name of the game!

    • Syok

      NO GAME IS IN GOOD SHAPE YOU FUCTARD WE HAVE 3 INSTANCES ON FLEET DONT LIKE THE GAME DONT PLAY WHY YOU EVEN COMENT

      • Éamon McCraith

        Well this certainly depends on where and when you are. Last night at prime time there were 77 ppl in my instance. I’ve never seen such a ridiculously low number for that time of the evening.

      • Fuck you and your CAPS you little bitch

        • Syok

          OKAY THATS FINE

        • yellow-power ftw

          no matter how bad they treat you, you should be always polite. ANd just to know that many nVidia users are disapprove that move to have chance to win and not all. Already non nVidia users will not get it.

      • Eban
      • The Wilson Lootbox

        That’s actually a good idea. The part about not playing the game. Maybe that way the rest of TOR’s community will only be filled with toxic asswipes like you and the game can finally be put down.

        • Syok

          Certainly!

      • Darth Gnaw
      • Mr. Wednesday

        They merged servers and the queue times are still atrocious so the three instances on Fleet must be a whole bunch of people not doing anything. Working as intended?

      • fubarz

        LMAO!!

      • Drivan

        Server merges are never, not ever, a good sign of a games strength or population and SWTOR just had a HUGE server merge…
        And calling people names will ALWAYS help them agree with you…

        • Syok

          And you really fell for it. Good job.

  • Syok

    FOR A CHANCE FOR A CHANCE
    FOR A CHANCE FOR A CHANCE
    FOR A CHANCE FOR A CHANCE
    FOR A CHANCE FOR A CHANCE
    FOR A CHANCE FOR A CHANCE

    we respect our players and we want to encourage them to try the game again so we treat them equally

    So. much. desperation. 10/10.

  • Amodin

    I’m sure they probably left out some rules about it, like they did with Eternal Championship.

    Remember kids, if you picked your nose, you aren’t eligible to receive this reward. We won’t tell you about that until afterwards!

  • Jonathan Parker

    So I already had an account and I had that thing downloaded. I’m good? And what’s this about a chance?! It’s not guaranteed?

    • Darth Gnaw

      I think “chance” is just poor wording on BW’s part. replace the word “chance” with “opportunity”. That fits in better with what it says on Nvidias site.

      • Jonathan Parker

        Got it, that makes a lot more sense.

      • Ben Gimson

        Or they mean chance and it’s more than just poor wording. I’m honestly expecting that will turn out to be the case. Setting my expectations low in preparation.

  • Sindariel

    “for a chance”
    Rofl. Not worth it.

  • John Kosto

    The word “Outlander” is making me vomit every time I see it now after all this time. Not only does it remind me of the KOTFE/KOTET bullshit, but it’s also a completely idiotic name for a character.

    I have been enjoying the game a lot more after I decided to not ever do that story on any more characters, and I have regretted that I started and/or completed the story on 7 toons so far. I really wish they would make it so that you could restore your character with all original companions and remove everything that has to do with KOTFE/KOTET from a character’s story, missions, companions….

    • Syok

      I am no longer an Empire’s Wrath. I am no longer Dark Council Elite. I am no longer Imperial Forward Commander. I resigned from being Above the Law.
      I AM AN OUTLANDER.
      And I’ll have you know I tried to kill myself only 5 times this week. Outlander. I hate that title.

      • ZestyM8

        OUTLANDER! we have your woman!

        • Syok

          Good, keep her. I can finally watch Huttball semifinals!

    • fubarz

      Think of the Outlander as Lana’s bitch 🙂

  • AbnerDoon

    They need a better promotion! It is bleak if Amazon has really turned off digital sales for this game.

    • Infernus

      They just did that today because I was looking at the prices less than 24 hours ago. Maybe they’re coming up with new rewards? It doesn’t necessarily have to mean a bad thing.

  • Amodin
  • Danny Seth

    I think this promotion is a good idea. I like the mount, I like the armor… and in most cases, it’s given free. I don’t have anything negative to say… screw me, right?

    • fubarz

      Nope. It’s how you feel is all 🙂

    • Ben Gimson

      Don’t find the fact that it’s only a ‘chance’ to get those items to be a negative?

      • Danny Seth

        But let’s wait until the 13th. If we don’t get it, then we can outrage and curse them as most people do.

        • Ben Gimson

          Why? This is a bad idea whether you/I get sent a code or not and BW should be called out on their BS. RNG in promotions is just another new low. Why sit back and say nothing?

  • 平賀才人

    I want another Outlander Token! :c

    • Dr. Mike Wendell

      I want a mount along the lines of the speeder out of the first movie. None of us are going to be happy though.

  • JasonRyder

    What if I ALREADY have a GeForce Experience account?

    • Zasz

      Good question.

  • Alexander Delorean

    fuck Nvidia anyway, those manipulations dont worth the “beggar pack”

  • Keywords: For a chance.

  • The Wilson Lootbox

    Hopefully, the systems that are in place are not as useless as the ESRB ratings on every game.

    • fubarz

      So the government passes a law about this for kids. TOA then says you must be 21 to play the game. Then back to business as usual. And then if a kids do this (after the law is past) it will be the parents /kids that broke the law.

      • The Wilson Lootbox

        Exactly, then the game industry will go back to the shitty practices again and we’ll get less content along with some other form of bullshit.

  • Acknowledge the good

    So much with the whinging! Miserable load of dickheads. Can’t any of you just go – ‘Hmmmkay cool’ or ‘hope the people who get it enjoy the freebies’ and leave it at that? Does it always have to be a fucking aneurism of bile?

    • liarliarpantsonfire

      Heh look everyone it’s the post once a year guy back again with his angry whine post.

      Yeee welcome back whiny angry aspie attention seeking poster.

    • Ben Gimson

      Why should we be happy at RNG seeping into promotions now as well? Seriously where do masochist cunts like you come from? How can you possibly defend this bollocks?

      • Eban

        Don’t feed it attention, it just wants someone to argue with.

      • Darth Ji’inx

        It’s a raffle. That’s how raffles work. You and a bunch of other people enter, with winners being randomly selected.

        • ThatGuy

          What?! No participation trophy?! Inconceivable!

          • Darth Ji’inx

            Sweepstakes/giveaways don’t give out participation trophies. 😉

        • Ben Gimson

          Oh well that makes it all better then -_-

          I’m surprised that you’re defending them on this one.

          • Darth Ji’inx

            Defending them? I’m honestly not seeing what has to be defended in the first place.

            Contests don’t reward everyone for participating. Unless they’re achievement-based, contests tend to be random.

            If there is something I’m missing, please explain it to me.

            • HMH

              Where in the description above do you read the word contest, non-achievement-based or otherwise?

              • Darth Ji’inx

                “Contest,” which I erroneously equated with “giveaway,” was not listed. However, upon researching terminology, I found that “giveaway” is technically the correct term for this promotion, even though “sweepstakes” would be better.

                “Giveaway (UK) or Sweepstake(s) (US)
                “A giveaway or sweepstake/sweepstakes is a prize draw from qualifying entries. Entrants do not differentiate themselves qualitatively, and are thus drawn randomly for winner selection.”

                Source: https://competitionagency.com/what-is-the-difference-between-a-competition-and-a-giveaway-or-the-difference-between-a-contest-and-a-sweepstake/

              • HMH

                You are trying really hard but I just disagree, Ive read plenty of contest and sweepstakes descriptions mostly from companies with Star Wars licenses and Im not used to having to catch one random mention obfuscated in the middle of the text to determine that it is random, or is it common for people in the comments to be looking up definitions.

                The description above and on the site linked to participate is a PR failure.

              • Darth Ji’inx

                “Giveaway” was in the title, and “chance” was mentioned twice in the article. I don’t think it was as hidden as you say it was. I think the main issue was the terminology (“giveaway” over “terminology”).

              • HMH

                Nice over reach but it seems it’s not just me saying it was, what with so many here and on the official forums saying the same thing to the point of having to be addressed by Musco in the clarification included with the original article above now.

                You aren’t convincing me of anything but your over eagerness to defend the man.

              • Darth Ji’inx

                I’m not trying to defend, rather; I’m trying to clarify. Honestly, I don’t care that much about the giveaway, which is why I find all of this outrage fascinating.

              • HMH

                I find it fascinating you believe people only care about the same things you do.

                Who exactly is outraged? Do you speak in hyperbolic statements in RL too or is this just your internets personality?

              • Darth Ji’inx

                I apologize for my condescending wording. I wasn’t trying to generalize anyone’s feelings or equate them to mine, I just worded my comment poorly.

                It just seems like a decent amount of people here are upset about the RNG aspect of the promotion. I was surprised because I saw it as a contest (sweepstakes or draw) from the beginning based on the article’s inclusion of entry criteria and the word “chance.” To make matters worse, I bungled my terminology when trying to explain my view of the promotion.

                In all honesty, I don’t care that much about the promotion, I just wanted to share my thoughts on the matter by analyzing the terminology.

              • HMH

                You’re OK I was just pokin fun.

                They definitely could have used better terms.

            • Ben Gimson

              If it needs explaining, you’ll never understand.

              • Darth Ji’inx

                (Refer to my other reply)

          • Darth Ji’inx

            While “giveaway” is technically correct, “sweepstakes” would have been better.

            “Giveaway (UK) or Sweepstake(s) (US)
            “A giveaway or sweepstake/sweepstakes is a prize draw from qualifying entries. Entrants do not differentiate themselves qualitatively, and are thus drawn randomly for winner selection.”

        • HMH

          probably should have called it the SWTOR Nvidia Geforce Rule the Galaxy Story Pack Raffle

          • Darth Ji’inx

            I misspoke; it’s not necessarily a raffle, rather; it’s a non-achievement-based contest. I do, however, agree that their wording could have been more precise.

    • Fred Garvin

      Yes it does. Go away.

  • CrumpetTrumpet

    “Criteria.” I’m assuming that includes running the game at least once with it.

    I planned on uninstalling this after the giveaway date anyway, so no skin off my nose.

    • Bucky

      No skin off mine either, cya

  • James Colby

    Good luck with that but it might worthy? Love swtor stuff>? go to gityershopon.com and pick up great gamers stuff or swtor mouse pads in xxl size!!!

    • Dr. Mike Wendell

      Dulfy, just a heads up that this is a bot. It’s on the support forums as well as the other swtor fan sites. Hope this helps

      • James Colby

        Actually its not a bot but you show a major amount of intelligence in thinking it is, does a url bother you?

  • Jonathan Parker

    Okay, so it is just a chance of getting it. Well, here’s hoping I guess. I have an account, and I have that program, already had them before this. Really wanted that mount when I saw it in the previews, and I don’t know why you couldn’t just put it in the game as a flashpoint reward or something (you know, earning new items, weird right?) instead of throwing everything arbitrarily in the market or random “giveaways” like this.

    • Ben Gimson

      Even when they give stuff out for free they have to include RNG :/

      • Darth Ji’inx

        That’s how (non-achievement-based) contests work…

        • HMH

          When you have to make up wordy new terms to describe something it is not as intuitive as you are trying to make it out to be.

          • Darth Ji’inx

            I’m using those terms because I’m simplifying what I’m saying. The way I see it, there are two types of contests: achievement-based and chance- based. This promotion seems to fall into the latter category.

            • HMH

              I believe you are missing the fact that these multi-billion dollar companies that we buy products from and are currently offering the ‘giveaway’ we are discussing, instead of using the correct terms and definitions you are compiling, used an incorrect and misleading term.

              You have to see that some of us see this as just another failure of Bioware, and this industry at large, on truth telling.

              As to the actual mechanics of the ‘giveaway’ itself I have no problem.

              • Darth Ji’inx

                It looks like “giveaway” is actually a synonym for “sweepstakes.”
                (Refer to my other reply for specifics)

              • HMH

                The current US term would be ‘drawing’- the process of deciding something by drawing lots.

                ‘Sweepstakes’ is kinda antiquated but still used sometimes as a synonym for contest (the monopoly games by fast food and grocery stores come to mind) in defiance of your definitions from the contest peoples website.

                “Giveaway’ here in the US strait up means things are being given away for nothing.

                Idk where Nvidia is HQed but I know Bioware is in the US and I assume the person that wrote the description is also.

              • Darth Ji’inx

                I agree with you about “sweepstakes” being somewhat outdated. I also agree that “giveaway” wasn’t the best word choice from an American company, due to its implied meaning in the U.S.

                Whether or not you agree that my terminology arguments are a stretch, I think we can both agree that “giveaway” wasn’t the best terminology for this promotion.

              • HMH

                Idk why it took you 13 comments to get there.

    • Nomad

      i’m sure there will be a re skinned version in pack or direct sale eventually

  • ChinguZilla

    Hmmm….would like the reward but GeForce Experience is a resource PIG. Has some good ideas but not worth it.

    • Paulo Gomes

      Not only that, but it’s a BUGGY resource PIG. I’ve had several problems with it, to the point that I uninstalled the program.

      • Fred Garvin

        Same here. Mine would never work at all. I just go to their website when I get the alert there’s a driver update.

      • ChinguZilla

        I used to have it installed between SWTOR 4.0-5.0. As with many people playing SWTOR, I would have multiple programs running, TS/Starparse/Discord. My machine would always slow down badly. I thought that it was the combination of all the apps I was running caused this. After some research, I found that it was actually GeForce Experience at the root of the issues. I uninstalled the program and BOOM! Everthing ran smooth as silk and my frame-rates went up considerably. It’s funny, to me, the GeForce Experience is slowing down my machine and reducing my frame-rates making the game almost unplayable. The GeForce Experience is a NEGATIVE one.

    • Darth Twinge

      I used it to launch the game…. it seems to make it unstable.

  • Matthew Langley

    Seriously people will complain about *anything*.

    This is a standard giveaway. I love how people are arguing RNG now in promotions, welcome to the high tech world of RNG in promotions from well who knows how long, centuries ago lol.

    Giveaway is a common term synonymous with sweestakes, raffle, a.k.a. RNG for the youngens.

    Other examples
    https://www.amazon.com/ga/giveaways

    https://www.reddit.com/r/giveaways/
    Yeah an entire reddit dedicated for chances to win things, a.k.a. RNG

    What’s wrong with people, the terms are fine.

    • HMH

      In both of your examples the phrase ‘enter for a chance to win’ is repeated over and over and contained in each entry’s title.

      • Matthew Langley

        Both under categories called giveaways

        • HMH

          Reading is hard

    • vin b

      I’ve never seen the term “giveaway” mean random chance unless it’s clarified extensively by stating so in the details.

      Giveaway when it comes to digital items can easily mean given to everyone who qualifies and quite often that’s what it means

      SWTOR in particular has been running several giveaways every year for the past 6 years and all of them were simply “you qualify by doing x and you receive y in the giveaway”

      I have no problem with there being random contest events, but they need to be labeled as such, normally it would say “enter for a chance to win” or some other very clear wording

      • HMH

        This guy gets it.

      • Matthew Langley

        Those links I literally posted… amazon giveaway page and reddit giveaway page are titled only by giveaway and seem all to be random chance.

        So apparently everyone else on the internet understands what a giveaway is.

        • vin b

          Hey moron, learn to read. Those links you posted have individual explanations for each giveaway.

          Several of those giveaways (such as the amazon coupons) are for EVERYONE WHO QUALIFIES. Others clearly state if they are entry’s for random chances and so on.

          You entirely missed the point that “giveaway” by itself does NOT imply random.

          Both of your links contain a mixture of different types of giveaways, and each one individually has it’s own explanation of what type of giveaway it is.

          Your links therefore actually prove you wrong.

          As I said, you lack any real experience to be making these statements, you either didn’t read what you linked or didn’t understand it when you did.

          • Matthew Langley

            They are all titled giveaway, they are all giveaways, they are all or nearly all random. There’s a trend and I didn’t need to call you a moron to communicate my point. When someone gets to personal insults I’m done, have a nice day.

            • vin b

              If you can’t be bothered or capable of understanding what’s been explained to you. You deserve the insults.

              You’d rather focus on that than admit you were wrong. Standard snowflake victim response.

    • yellow-power ftw

      already the NON nVidia users wont get that, its not a standard giveaway. Its a lottery reward

      • Matthew Langley

        Giveaways have different requirements to be entered, that’s completely standard.

  • GAY

    • Don Loco

      While I applaud your bold approach to coming out of the closet, this probably isn’t the best venue for you to announce that.

      • fubarz

        LMAO!!!!

      • Haha, I forgot how big of a fag fan base SWTOR had. I didn’t mean gay as in gay. I meant gay as in stupid.

        • Erik Rabe

          Way to be original. Now go away, you’ve already proven how lame you are by A, not using your original name, and B, stealing John’s name and picture.

        • Fred Garvin

          Oh, please. You know damn well the only reason you’re still playing SWTOR is to buy multiple hyper crates each pack release, opening each with giddy anticipation, as you look for pants that perfectly show off Quinn’s asscheeks while you roleplay Captain and cabin boy with him.

          • Shawn Hargrave

            Hahaha man i make me laugh lol

            • same person?

              ” i make me laugh” wut?

      • Whitedragon
  • yellow-power ftw

    why chance and not all? thats not good, already the non nVidia users will loose it, why and most of nVidia too?

  • Solus_V

    So I assume once you download the Geforce Experience program and make an account it detects that you have SWTOR on your pc and that’s how you become eligible? I’ve had an account for years so I guess I don’t need to do anything else.

    • Dr. Mike Wendell

      Who knows? There’s no real details about any of this.

    • Darth Ji’inx

      It detected SWTOR on my computer.

    • Drivan

      I think the Devs are going to pick a bunch of people at random and give them the prizes. They will pick mostly former subs that used to drop their bankroll on the game but haven’t spent anything on it lately. They will use this as an attempt to get some whales back that they lost.

  • fubarz
    • The Wilson Lootbox

      Yup, also take note of how the suits at Wall Street and game companies with predatory microtransactions are hoping that we would let our guard down by not talking about loot boxes so they can go back to their greed. So yeah, don’t stop talking about loot boxes if you want better games AND you’ll even get a REAL sense of pride and accomplishment if this passes.

    • Drivan

      The unfortunate part is that SW: Battlefront 2 is a great game, but being embroiled in this loot box controversy is a huge problem.

      • The Wilson Lootbox
        • Shawn Hargrave

          The problem with the campaign is that girl switches sides in seconds and they allow her next to leah 2 minutes later lol bit ridiculous

          • The Wilson Lootbox

            Yeah, I agree. The story feels rushed. Maybe the writers had something else in mind but was unable to implement them because of pressure from EA and the developers had to make the best out of it. Besides, EA has done this before with other games. The guy writing the story for BF2 was also responsible for writing Spec Ops: The Line which had a really good plot twist at the end. Do you think he would have made the main character in BF2 switch sides that obvious to fans especially since one of the main focuses of the game was to play from the perspective of an Imperial soldier?

            • Shawn Hargrave

              thought it was a pile of shit personally a imp commando whos this harcore imp fangirl in seconds is flying an x wing and buddies with leah? lol its just so crappy the story would have been better if she stayed imp but for an imp commando to meet leah in 5 minutes after turning sides is stupid lolz meh im glad i cancelled my pre order early. The game looks nice but other then that total waste

              • Ben Gimson

                I just watched it on YouTube, which is how I plan to play all new EA games in future 😛

                Story was alright (it’s Star Wars; it’s never going to feature any clever writing), but they completely failed to deliver the Imperial story they promised. Only cameos that I thought worked alright were Luke’s and Lando’s. Leia’s wasn’t great, and Han’s was outright fan-service.

                Glad I didn’t buy it at any rate.

          • Drivan

            Her turn kinda started as soon as she Found out the Emperor was dead and that he wanted the Galaxy Destroyed in his absence rather than taking the fight to the rebellion. The sequence of events was a few days for the character, plenty of time to conciser the right and wrong of it all.
            Her father is hell-bent on killing everyone, destroying every planet and she sees him annihilate her home world all on the orders of an Emperor that is dead. She sees how wrong this is and decides to warn the New Republic/Rebellion before other planets are destroyed.
            Yeah, no real military would let a newly turned spec ops soldier near their senior leader on the field of combat, but this is Star Wars… Plot armor and such. Lol.
            I actually like that break from reality. I get enough of real life everyday, it’s nice to submerge myself in a fake world for an hour or 2 a few nights a week.

        • Shawn Hargrave

          HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

        • Drivan

          No I mean the game it’s self. I play mostly starfighter since star cards aren’t as important as a persons ability to fly, aim, shoot & avoid running into stuff. You can have all purple cards on your Kylo Ren ship and I’ll still shoot you down with my A-wing and finish in or close to the top 5 in most matches.
          I am enjoying it. I’d like the loot crates gone, but now that you have to earn in game credits to buy them and can’t use real money I’m better with the idea.
          I still don’t like the drop rates, credit gains or amount of crafting parts you receive from a crate, but I like the story, the arcade mode and the starfighter battles.
          I don’t like choosing between unlocking a character or buying a crate to try to get a better star card for my ships. Then again I don’t play much ground PvP because I just don’t really like it. I was a soldier for 20 years, I don’t really get into ground combat PvP games at all.
          I’m not a fan of duplicate cards giving you credits instead of upgrading the rating of the current card or giving you more crafting parts instead. I like that I can craft and upgrade my cards with crafting parts, I wish that there was a reliable way to get more crafting parts.
          I have a list of complaints, but I don’t let it stop me from liking the game. I have a list of complaints about ESO, SWTOR, Assassins Creed, Fallout 4, & WoW. I still liked them.

  • Lady Moro

    May have all the requirements but not any type of NVIDIA driver and client will not down load…

  • William Li

    For a chance? Why fucking stingy? If I were you, I will give anyone who sign up for this event. And for those who regret or dislike afterward, you can get amount of in-game credits or CC.

  • chalupar

    So, no Giveaway….

  • Jarred Skeleton Nemorin

    My biggest concern about this event is if the code is still reusable once you use it. If that’s the case then it’d be great if someone or everyone shared their code.

    • Terry G Roberts

      I’d doubt it, because it’s not a community code like the Battlefront 2 or recent cantina codes were. It’s a giveaway hosted by a third party directed at people that uses that companies products. Even the people who have Geforce Experience aren’t guaranteed a code. If it was a code meant for everyone then they would just give the code out like they did for the aforementioned cantina/promotional events.

  • Caveman

    Has anybody gotten a code yet?

    • Jarred Skeleton Nemorin

      that’s a negative on me

  • Nobody in my guild of a few hundred people who registered or were already active members with Nvidea Accounts got anything…..complete sham

  • Darth Ji’inx

    Nvidea:
    “Don’t worry, not all lucky recipients have been selected yet! More will be notified tomorrow, so please check back then.”

  • Terry G Roberts

    Did anyone even get a code? I didn’t.

  • HMH

    No reports of any winners anywhere.

    • Caveman

      Maybe there was only one code and someone that doesn’t even play TOR got it. I hope Bioware makes the Chiss fighter and other rewards available through other means since we all miss out on them.

  • Nothing here. :/

  • Ryan White

    Just got the code and redeemed it

  • Mike Pieniaszek

    just got a winning ticket (code) as well. thx nvidia

    • Culdtwan

      Are you going to use it?

  • Infernus

    Just got my code!!!! It appears they sent them out a day later than expected

    • Mickaël Prospero

      Do you have more code ? Cause i can’t have one beiing in France 🙁

  • pintoe

    I got two for some reason? Also haven’t played this game in a couple years… Just turned on my comp this morning and had 2 gifts, both the same thing just different codes I guess.

    • NotSpecified

      Nice! Are you willing to share one of them if you’re not planing to use it? 🙂

    • Henrik Kulla

      if you do not need one, my wife could use it. I am just an occasional swtorer but she is at home w kids and sometimes when they sleep she plays w it regularly.

    • Julian Gills Sportiche

      I don’t suppose you’d give it to me? I was really hoping for this and I really want the armor set. 🙁

    • Darth Ji’inx

      I play regularly. Do you still have a code?

  • Terry G Roberts

    Is this the only way to get the speeder and armor? Do they drop from a CM pack?

  • Hamlina

    would love a code if someone has a spare they don’t need, thanks!

  • Lee

    I would love a code if someone gets more than one. I was really looking forward for it.

  • Culdtwan

    I’d like one too. What are the chances all of us beggers will get one tho? 🙁

  • justfactsplease

    this whole event has just become a huge cock up due to both side i have 2 card’s and can’t even get one code where others are getting 2-3 code’s sent to them

    • Culdtwan

      I know right. I’m interested how this will turn out for everyone.

      • justfactsplease

        i can see this going very south on both side’s as both website’s ie swtor and nvidia both have different info on them , eric may have had a q&a but nvidia didn’t change any info afterwards , as i got all my info from them when i was taken to their site via a link when installing a new driver and that’s still saying limited time and not limted amount i, didn’t even see eric’s post until this morning as i’ve had rl stuff to deal with , and now players are getting 2-3 code’s at once….

  • Jonathan Parker

    I’ve been signed up with this thing for years now, guess I didn’t get lucky enough to win a random giveaway. What the hell were they thinking with this? Giving it to random winners… “free” my ass.

  • justfactsplease

    i’ve just made a post on the nvidia forums pointing out people are selling the extra ones due to their screw up

  • simurgh559

    I’d like a spare code as well.

  • Edgar Edmonton

    Does anyone still have a spare code since Nvidia really shit the bed.

  • Mickaël Prospero

    Unfortunately i’m in France and there’s no giveway codes for us… And i want this mount so much for my Chiss 🙁

  • Fred Garvin
    • Darth Ji’inx

      Does nVIDIA have a bad rep?

      • Fred Garvin

        Don’t think so but even if SWTOR had no control over this you just had to know it wouldn’t go down smoothly. Cause SWTOR.

  • Why do this giveaway at all if barely anyone is able to receive one?

  • Demosthinez

    I picked the wrong week to quit smoking.. grumpy from nicotine deprivation, and grumpy about this effed up “give away”. Grumpy + Grumpy = Really freakin grumpy! LOL. This giveaway was a joke.

      • TeaMugs

        I ended up with 4 codes. No clue as to why.

        • Remulus Dreypa

          4 codes? Wow, you got lucky. I saw you shared 2 of them, are you going to share the third one?

  • Edgar Edmonton

    can anyone share me a code

  • Hao Lu

    Are all the codes the same? if not i’ll give one away

    • Wystan Belov

      not the same
