SWTOR Web Content Roadmap

Bioware has a schedule for the web content releases on the official site with regards to the new expansion.

Web Content Roadmap | 04.29.2019, 09:52 AM

Hello everyone!

In one of my earlier posts I mentioned an idea that I had about a web content roadmap. Initially I had the idea to break it down month by month, but as I started to build it, I realized that really wasn’t viable. Instead, I have come it with a living format that will serve as a stickied forum post here.

Below I will list every idea that I have for articles between now and the release of ‘Onslaught’. I’ll have these broken down by topic and once I start the process of writing them, I will bump them up to the “Work in Progress” section. Then once they get published, I’ll come back to this post and link the articles.

Published:

‘Onslaught’ Announcement – April 13

Work in Progress:

  • Dantooine Tactical Report – This is a story-based article that will help set the scene and introduce Dantooine to players.
  • New Pirate Incursion In-Game Event – This article will explain everything involved with the new recurring in-game event. Timing, gameplay, rewards, and more will be explained here!
  • May In-Game Events – Basic breakdown of the in-game events slated for May.


Upcoming article topics:

Planets – With the two new planets, Onderon and Mek-sha, we would like to set the scene with a lore-based article for both. There could also be a backstory blog on Corellia or Dxun. We’re still tentative on how much to reveal about the bosses in the new Flashpoint and Operation as the last thing we want to do is spoil the fun of experiencing these firsthand. Another idea that I have is to do a behind-the-scenes look to show the making of both Onderon and Mek-sha, which could take on several different forms.

Nautolans – With Nautolans we would like to cover the history of the species for people that are more unfamiliar with their backstory and possibly a behind the scenes look at the building of them.

Classes – The changes to advanced classes with their new abilities, how these marry into the new itemization, and the overall philosophy of these changes are all things that I would like to cover. Tentatively the idea that I have on the table is something akin to a “Day in the life of ____” to paint a broad picture of how these pieces interact to provide an impactful level of gameplay.

“Spoils of War” – Our overall philosophy, a breakdown of Tactical items, set bonuses, and all the ways to get loot with ‘Onslaught’ are some of the topics that I plan to tackle. Whether this gets broken down into multiple articles, takes the form similar to the “Under the Hood” article, or another avenue is still being decided. 

Story – ‘Onslaught’ will have a few key figures in the story and to set the scene there will be several highlight stories featuring these characters. These won’t touch the story in ‘Onslaught’, but will be more on their backstory or history. Also, as we get closer to the release of ‘Onslaught’ we would like to do a blog that will be of a similar style to the “State of the Galaxy” article before the release of Game Update 5.10 ‘Jedi Under Siege’.

Now as a disclaimer, none of these ideas are 100% set in stone as things can change in the next few months. For example, once I start writing an article, we could decide it would be better suited combining it with something else, or maybe splitting it into several different articles. I very well could come up with new ideas as well. I am also open to suggestions on topics or formats for certain articles. Over my time here we’ve written deep-dives, interviews, lore heavy blogs and more. Would you like to see another deep-dive? More interviews? If so, with who? For example, for “The Making of Onderon” article would you like another sit-down with Charles, or maybe someone from the art team? Let me know your thoughts!

  • Asrai86

    I’ve been a bit out of the loop, does this mean Nautolans are coming as a playable race? Or are they just a key race in the next expansion?

    • aPinkMando

      New playable race

    • abaddonsmummy

      I was wondering that myself after reading this, the way it’s described looks as though its more than just a npc race.
      I hope pink mando below is correct because that’s really cool (I’m a bit of a kit fisto fan) but weirdly I’ve not seen that mentioned anywhere before.

      • AbnerDoon

        They announced during the Celebration Cantina they would be a new playable race. They may or may not be ready for launch when the expansion goes live. They also may or may not have the stubby lekku issue the Togruta had.

    • Duke

      And I am still waiting for Kel Dors.

      • Sorrai

        I don’t understand why they are so stingy when it comes to offering more race option in the game. I get that it requires more coding, but if that’s the only rationale being used I think they need to do more than just dispense a new race option every 4 or 5 years. I’d love it if they just included half a dozen new options for this expansion rather than just one: Duros, Kel-Dor, Trandoshan, etc. I read a post in the forum that sounded great which would be to add a “Near Human” species option. All the options humans have plus an additional suite of exotic options like skin tones, eyes, facial markings, hair, and miscellaneous stuff (horns, antennae, extra eyes, etc.) It would allow players to create their own custom “Near Human” species so people can finally do things like create Zeltrons or Arkanians and a bunch of other obscure alien races out there.

    • Ben Hodges

      I would so play a Ortolan Jedi! It would be EPIC!

    • Drool Bear

      Awww. He’s cute. I want one.

  • Cool. Really hoping this will revive the game. Still one of my fav games of all time.

  • disqus_8fGMCuJwj0

    So, nothing yet…

  • Alexander Delorean

    Still a lot of talk but not meaningful

  • Ben Gimson

    Bit of a pointless post. ‘We’ll post some articles in future’.
    Thanks BW. No shit :’)

    • Fred Garvin

      But they reserve the right to change their mind and not post anything along the lines of what was in this post about what they might maybe could be posting about in the future.

      Can I get a job there? Because accountability seems to be nil.

  • Jep Fareborn

    Roadmaps for ‘LIVE SERVICES’ ! Has worked wonders real well for “ANTHEM” now, hasn’t it?

    • Shaun Fetters

      Interested in the meaning behind the photo you posted….

      • Fred Garvin

        The meaning is unfortunately obvious but I’m sure you’ll be admonished for being a beta cuck snowflake SJW who’s trying to ruin someone’s free speech.

      • Jep Fareborn

        Millennials: This is how we (and by ‘we’ I mean boomers and Generation Xers) made fun of things in the ’80s and ’90s by making people and failing businesses look like fucking retards. No political correctness and soy-induced triggeredness involved. Please catch a generational virus and go extinct.

        • Shaun Fetters

          One does not need to be a “millennial” (LOL I am far from a millennial…whatever that really is)… to identify blatant ignorance but, hey, it’s the internet, so have at it I guess

          • Fred Garvin

            I called out all the other “Frail Male 4 Dummies” key words he’d throw out so he was reduced to “millennial” and “soy.” Guys like this amuse me because I know damn well that off the internet their tail is tucked through the entire day. They’re tough behind a keyboard though 💪…lol. Most of these idiots actually turn out to be millennials themselves; too stupid to realize what generation label they even fall under.

            • Jep Fareborn

        • ewokingdead

          wow… proud to be a boomer… that’s just sad.

  • rippled

    Website getting updates is good. Tis the first contact new and returning players have with the game and if it’s woefully out of date that doesn’t convey a positive image.

    Plus it has the added benefit of triggering habitual haters on Dulfy so I get a laugh.

  • SWTOR has been reduced to a bunch of little gays arguing about gay stuff with the forums run by a bunch of radical gays. Their game is garbage.

  • Farlas816

    I’m still not clear on if Dantooine is supposed to be before or after onslaught

    • Fubarz

      Before it’s in the PTS right now….. or suppose to be

      • Farlas816

        thanks

    It`s a great game, but people will always complain, whatever they give them, they will still find something to cry about. The game have great animatvion, great cinematics ingame, great story that involves you in the game, and you are feeling it, it`s like you in reality plays/feel/live through it.
    Every game you play for more then 5-6 hours non-stop will get boring obviously.
    I play the game like 20-30 hours in a week and it`s feel great, plenty of content and different things to do.
    But a lot of people are doing just 1 thing and that`s it and they are skipping everything just to get to max level and do only 1 thing from there. Obviously every game will suck with playing like this.
    You need to learn how to play such games, so they keep your interest.
    And i think with every MMORPG or similar games out there you need to take breaks. Playing 2-3 months, than have a life for a month or two,then repeat.

    • gua543

      You have a point that pleasing long-time players gets increasingly hard, and I agree the visual quality of the recent stuff has been very nice. But the mistakes Bioware made in the past are still fresh in some people’s minds.
      As for myself, I’ve come to the conclusion that things will never be as good as they were back in the days of RotHC and the Dread War. But I also believe there’s a good chance this new expansion will bring a bit for everyone, and it will be satisfactory enough.

      • Тодор Стаматов

        I`m not a typical gamer anymore, too old for that, but still play games quite a lot.
        My view is the current generation are too spoiled. One game could be almost perfect, but they will still find some little thing they will complain about it.
        I recently played Ryse: Son of Rome, a game from 2013, action adventure. Story was great, gameplay was great, graphics were insane. I couldn`t believe this is 2013 game. For 2013 game it was insanely good.
        Yet a lot of people totally overlook the good things of the game and complain about little stuff, like input combos were not that much ? Yet in al ot of Xbox, ps3 game a lot of people complain about exactly the opposite. They were complain about the upgrades, that are mostly passive and not too complex. Yet the same thing in same game to upgrade your character it`s very time consuming you need to math and calculate about this and that and people complain about too.
        So how can you please all ?
        Every game will have flaws. You won`t find the perfect game.

        You just need to find the game that suit you. Yet some people can`t. They always find something to complain about.
        The things i look in games is mostly to have good story, and decent gameplay, i`m not too demanding about graphics and i can make a lot of compromise if i found the game is charming.
        SWTOR is the best story game. Have great graphics, it`s gameplay it`s perfectly okay for me.

        It`s not that hard to equip yourself. Yet a lot of people complain hard about gear tiers and how they to get them as fast. And it`s like oh the game is broken. They f**** the whole game, just because 1 mechanics, that is not too hard to acquire. Yet someone obviously want to have the best gear for every slot in a no time.
        In any game i would never complain about this things. Also mor**** who constantly complain about balancing and how this character have such skill and his character doesn`t have this. He is too powerfull and so much crap. Instead of enjoying the game he find everything to complain about.
        What is it matter if some character are better for one thing and worst for other ?

        They just can`t accept it.
        Spoiled kids ….

        • Eban

          Yes yes we know, anyone that criticies SWTOR is a Hater and anyone that praises it is a Fanboy. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e9dc8facf6e9525c5e1aaaccf30e6c88b9630070705e55c59cd8fd9cd89f1609.jpg

          • Тодор Стаматов

            By looking at your comments, there is pure hate towards SWTOR.

            There is a big difference between constructive criticise and a obviously hate or same old crap biased opinion.
            The expansion is not yet released yet you are hating on it.

            • Eban

              You should look closer.
              I’ve given SWTOR constructive criticism and praise for years (plus a few jokes here and there).
              Granted the past few years is mainly criticism but that’s on Bioware (I have said 100 times that SWTOR 2.0/3.0 was the best MMORPG I’ve ever played).
              But they’ve been in freefall since 2015.

              “Every game will have flaws. You won’t find the perfect game. You just need to find the game that suit you.Yet some people can`t. They always find something to complain about.”
              Which means ->
              ‘But never complain about any of those flaws or your instantly labelled a hater and told to leave immediately’
              ^We’ve seen this attitude loads on here for years.
              Only your criticism is allowed or if anyone does criticise make sure you end it with some praise.

              Also it’s not spoiled kids at all, we’re consumers/customers, we have every right to complain/whine/bitch/moan/cry, that comes with wanting our money.
              The loudest complainers are generally the ones that care the most.
              I play SWTOR and ESO, mainly ESO these days.
              Is ESO flawed? HELL YEAH.
              It has loads, some of which drive me nuts and I have every right to criticise their devs because of those flaws but when they do things right they get praise and money so SWTOR gets the same treatment as it should.

              It should never be ‘oh the poor devs, we all know their trying super hard, lets not complain about all this bugged content they keep releasing or the new content we get that is finished in one evening cause they have feelings you know’.

              I ain’t hating on 6.0 either, I gave my opinion on what we know.
              On what we know as of right now it doesn’t look up to much.
              Again that’s on Bioware.
              They took away the Devs and funding so they don’t get applause for handing out crumbs to starving players.

              That’s also another thing I have said in the past on here, IF Bioware goes back to releasing content and expansions like they did pre-KOTFE then I would be back subscribing and singing their praises.

              So stop blaming the players for complaining when the fault lies entirely at Biowares feet.

              • Тодор Стаматов

                You may be right in some of your point i just looked at some of your post and they were purely criticize, criticize, criticize without even trying the damn thing. How you can know that something sucks if you not tried ?

                And you paid for something and you get something. If you dont like it, dont pay for it.
                Some complain are obviously good, but a lot of guys complain for about everything and just for the sake of it.
                Even if you give them the perfect game(is there such?) they will still find something to complain about it.
                This is today kids.

              • Eban

                Before the expansion is released I have foreseen bugs galore, why you may ask?
                I ain’t no Psychic or Prophet but Bioware’s entire track record is release new content but break stuff at the same time.
                Even after weekly maintenance people often say “cool servers are back up, lets go see what they’ve broken”.
                It’s a running joke now amongst the players.

                I agree totally “If you don’t like it, don’t pay for it”, exactly why I unsubbed.
                And you’re right some people will never be happy but it ain’t today’s kids, it’s just people of all ages.
                This isn’t something new.
                Some people will hate everything the Devs do, it’ll never be good enough. They’re just angry at the world for lots of reasons.
                Some people will be fanboys and love the game no matter how awful it becomes. They will be there til the servers get turned off,(I have no idea why).
                Both groups of those people suck.

                SWTOR would appear to have mainly haters or loads of criticism lately but Bioware brought that on themselves.
                Zero sympathy.
                They had tons of fundings and completely ruined a Star Wars MMORPG idea.
                Mistake after mistake after mistake oh and mistake.

              • Sorrai

                “… completely ruined a Star Wars MMORPG…”? I suggest trying not to sound so melodramatic. SWTOR has been great fun and they’ve done some amazing things. I love the immersive lore and appreciate a lot of what the game managed to achieve. I think there are plenty of frustrating things about the game, but I I also enjoy a lot of the content. A lot of gamers out there are rotten, miserable people. All they care about is shitting on everything because they lack the ability to appreciate the positive things. It’s unfair to blame on the Dev team when it’s EA that severely limits their budget. If it were up to the content creators, they would hire a larger staff, recruit fresh new talent, have an army of artists, writers, social media people and programmers producing, marketing and innovating new content on a more frequent basis. Budget is everything. SWTOR still makes money but EA syphons that revenue into other projects and leaves SWTOR with a small crew trying to do the best job they can with the limited resources they have.

                The absolute best thing any of us can do on behalf of the game is to offer useful, constructive feedback. Criticize what needs to be criticized, keep pointing out the things that need to be fixed, but just as importantly, offer some fucking praise for the things they did well.

                I love the fact that this game is still alive and kicking. I love that MMOs have the ability to adapt and evolve to suit the needs of its community. There is tons of cool stuff to do. Ossus was a great recent addition and I’m looking forward to Dantooine and the rollout of the next expansion. Nothing is ever going to be perfect from the get-go. If they implement new stuff that breaks old stuff, then be patient, report the bugs and give them time to fix it.

              • Eban

                Just seen this comment as since Dulfy as gone AWOL, I haven’t been looking in.
                So apologies on the lateness.

                First of all they have ruined a Star Wars MMORPG.
                It’s not being melodramatic when that’s actually what’s happened.
                Going from over a million subs to what we have now (my guess less than 30k) tells you it’s been ruined.
                Population in game is decimated, there’s been 2 server merges ffs.
                The last real Expansion was 2014!
                For it to be ruined means at one point it was amazing and to repeat myself around 2.0/3.0 it was amazing.
                Base game class stories will always be remembered is fantastic.
                My favourite class to play was 2.0 Annihilation Mara, could burn hours and hours running around repeating that rotation and never get bored.
                There’s loads more of great things.

                BUT the constant blame to EA is exhausted.
                Bioware are also to blame.
                It’s been shown over and over, Bioware didn’t know what to do with SWTOR made mistakes after mistakes with development (which it seems is what they do, look at Anthem and ME:A), tried to copy WOW and paid the price.
                At release the game was a mess then they eventually got it going in the right direction only for the next big project to come in and Devs shifted away from the game.
                Bioware choose to move Devs, EA didn’t tell them too.
                EA poured ridiculous amounts of money into Bioware and Bioware screwed the pooch.
                I’m no fan of EA (hate them to the core actually) but I blame Bioware for the state of SWTOR as much as I blame EA.

                The small crew at Bioware Austin is a sob story that I’m fed up with.
                If the people left there can’t produce enough content regularly then drop the subscription and go full free to play and continue milking the cartel whales for the income.
                Stop advertising as a full AAA MMMORPG if you don’t have the manpower to back it up.

                Constructive feedback as been given in truck loads by the player base for years and for years it’s been ignored.
                The PTS server became a running joke.
                Every time the players gave criticism to anything it got ignored.
                Broken content went live, new game design that everyone hated went live.
                They don’t listen.
                They don’t even communicate.
                Remember when King Keith arrived at the helm with promises of more communication?
                He’s barely posted in 2 years.
                And the less said about Musco the better.

                BTW the ‘nothing is ever going to be perfect from the get-go’ is all fine and good, little bug here and there fine, but Bioware are infamous for making bugs so bad the game is unplayable.
                Patience runs out when they release new content that is filled with bugs that you can barely play the game and they sod off on holiday and then when they return, still take weeks to fix (remember SOA expansion release?).
                Then we had the KOTFE/KOTET lost count the amount of times those chapters were released broken.
                Could talk new content bugs all day.

                And SWTOR revenue isn’t been syphoned away, it’s keeping the lights on, there’s no way SWTOR is making enough these days to filter away and still fund the game too.
                I’m glad you’re still enjoying playing the game, no one says you shouldn’t.
                Have fun in there, I hope it gets better.

                Patience runs out when they release new content that is filled with bugs that you can barely play the game and they sod off on holiday and then when they return, still take weeks to fix (remember SOA expansion release?).
                Then we had the KOTFE/KOTET lost count the amount of times those chapters were released broken.
                Could talk new content bugs all day.

                And SWTOR revenue isn’t been syphoned away, it’s keeping the lights on, there’s no way SWTOR is making enough these days to filter away and still fund the game too.
                I’m glad you’re still enjoying playing the game, no one says you shouldn’t.
                Have fun in there, I hope it gets better.

          • ewokingdead

            posting here isn’t really constructive critisim since devs don’t go here. It’s more of a circlejerk for people who hate the game. Especially those memebers who proudly boast they haven’t played the game in years…. but still come here every day to post how much the game sucks and SWG is better

            I think we all know who that is

            • Eban

              Since the devs don’t allow ex-subscribers from posting on the SWTOR forums they have here (an excellent fan site of the game *shoutout to Dulfy) and reddit only to offer their constructive criticism.

              And people don’t hate the game, they hate what the game has become.
              And at times it’s more fun to make light of the state of SWTOR than to stay mad at it.

              Also it’s not all misery, I see people posting here weekly about how happy they are playing SWTOR and excited about what’s coming soon™.

    FFS…this is something you go over with your boss and maybe a few peers in a meeting to outline your upcoming planned work. Not something you spill out to your customers and in true BioWare fashion you can’t even do a spelling and grammar check. The last paragraph tl;dr is basically: all the shit I wrote before this could be thrown out the window cause why not?

    Fucking. Clown shoes.

        I’d bet a handsome amount of credits that weeks will stretch to months which is fitting given the way SWTOR delays patches…lol.

  • AbnerDoon

    Today , 07:57 AM | #1 Click here to go to the next staff post in this thread.

    Hey folks,

    Game Update 5.10.3 is being delayed by one week to Tuesday, June 4th. As we were in the final stages of testing and preparation for launch we discovered a critical bug that we need to take the time to address before going live. For context, the issue is that a large portion of combat animations simply stopped working. Obviously, that’s a pretty big deal! We are digging into whether it is a systemic change that caused it or just a bad build/version. Either way we want to take the extra week to ensure that we have time to fully understand why this is happening and get it resolved.

    This will cause a few timing changes on our end, which makes this a great chance to share those details with you!

    Since it’s brand new, we will run the Pirate Incursion event twice in a row, from June 4th – 11th and June 11th – 18th.

    Nar Shaddaa Nightlife will be returning from June 18th – July 30th.

    Double XP will run from June 11th – 18th.

    We were planning to do our first Onslaught livestream next Thursday, May 30th, where we would discuss Spoils of War! We are still on track for this to happen and so look for that stream next week. We will let you know if anything changes.

    Thanks everyone. We never want to delay an update if we can avoid it but certainly the animation issues are not acceptable to go live with and so we are going to take the necessary time to get them resolved.

    -eric

    • Vergansito

      Typical Bioware, it’s a tradition to always delay things. I was gonna reinstall the game right now but no point after reading this.

      However June looks interesting i might even resub for that month.

        • Darth Ji’inx

          I read your other post. My statement was simply reiterating what Exile said about Dulfy being away from the site. At this point, it would seem like this site’s updates are on hiatus, but only time will tell if it’s truly dead.

    • gua543

      Yo, tone down a bit on the melancholy, she ain’t dead.

      • Naq

        The site is. And it is also called Dulfy. I get Jinx not getting it, his sense of humor is in line with his profile pic, but you should get that its a joke.

        • Fred Garvin

          Yeah, I’d consider the site less dead if she had cared enough to take 5 minutes and put up a post saying, “I’m busy but will return eventually.” No details were needed just a statement from the person who runs the site so there wasn’t that several days where ppl were legit worried about her. To me it’s very telling that she couldn’t take a few minutes to do that. Most of us are busy…we still have to ability to post on a forum during lunch; particularly if we own the forum.

          • Naq

            Fred, from the other replies, and the sad little upvotes that they are getting, I am so sorry we left you here with these humorless zealots. It must have been terrible. I wish there was another place I could chat about Star Wars stuff at work through Disqus. A friend suggested The Mary Sue, but its a weird place where I’ve essentially been accused of hating gays, poc, and women in general. That’s me, a font of self loathing. Any suggestions would be appreciated if we all moved somewhere while I was gone, but I’m worried we’ve all kind of dispersed.

            • Fred Garvin

              With a name like The Mary Sue I’d have assumed it was just a bunch of neck-beards complaining about Rey ad nauseam…lol.

              I haven’t found anyplace else but honestly haven’t looked. I’m pretty burned out on all things Star Wars atm and only still come here once a week or so to see what buffoonery BioWare is up to and occasionally kick the hornet’s nest.

              I actually did log in a few times a month or so ago when some members of my old guild got on just for a laugh. Aside from some nostalgia I didn’t enjoy it much and just reinforced my opinion that I’m now playing a much better game.

              Hope you’re enjoying whatever you are playing!

            • AbnerDoon

              Vulkk uses disqus as well. There’s always discord as well. It’s a bit lite on discussion with Dulfy being awol but all the updates still get posted.

          • Fubarz

            Honestly she might be tired of keeping the site (with to much in her RL going on). There is the hope she will post again but most likely it’s to late now that people know she is fine and are moving on. After the Stream today Austin team said that they will be using Reddit also to keep in touch with players about the new Expac….. This Site has been fun and I thank Dulfy for keeping it going this long 😀

        • gua543

          Alright, I see you’re a fan of over-dramatization as well. While TOR is very far from it’s glory days, it’s certainly not the ghost town many here seem to make it. It would’ve been better if there was a post saying “brb 1 month” or something rather than just, well, nothing, but she really has no obligation to inform us of everything that’s going on with her life.

          Don’t rush into ordering the tombstone just yet.

  • Bryan

    From what I’ve gleamed from other sources Dufly is fine, but she’s got something going on with her career that is taking up her time. She also intends to come back per those sources.

    Sources:

      zzzzz, i was thinking about resubbing next month better not. Gonna wait for the new expansion. Unbelivable i played this game for so many years.

  • Kubrickian

    Haven’t posted here in months but since this was once a hub of activity and I can’t post on the swtor forums I’ll just say that they need to ditch the subscription model in favor of games like they modeled the failed Anthem after. Allow people to purchase the expansion and play without restrictions considering their worthwhile updates are years apart. Go crazy with cosmetic shop but also insert new weapons and gear in pvp, exploration, and pve quests. Stop blowing the budget on bad voice actors from the screen actors guild. Lastly, boil the servers down to 3, NA, Asia, Europe.

    • Noomi

      No just no. Never gonna happen.

      • Kubrickian

        I agree with you 🙂

  • simurgh559
  • gua543

    Well, since Dulfy still isn’t back, I want to bring your attention to this – http://www.swtor.com/info/news/article/20190603-0

    Summary:

    1) Different set bonuses are back. There will be set bonuses that will require less gear to be completed, so you’ll be able to mix and match stuff. Set bonuses will be locked to armor shells, but the shells are becoming BoL.

    2) Introduction of new items called tactical, sound like they will be a hard increase on something, but will take up a slot for set bonus gear.

    3) They’ll also be adding a new stat, amplifier, which is going to be randomly set on armor shells and mods, but you’ll be able to change it if you don’t like it. The change is also rng, but at least you need to spend only credits on it. Seems like it’s going to work like augments, but will not increase any of the already existing stats: “Some example Amplifiers include increased weapon damage, increased threat generation, and in-combat health regeneration.”

    4) PvP bolster is going to boost your gear to BiS, so your performance will be determined by the other stuff – set bonus, tactical items, amplifier stat. Not sure how bolster works with augments atm, and there’s no mention about them in the article either. Also no mention if bolster in PvE will work the same way, but my guess is most likely it will.

    5) Loot seems to be more or less the same, maybe you’ll start getting relevant gear from flashpoints: “As an example, let’s say that you kill and loot a Flashpoint boss. The game will now take into consideration your current Discipline and the average power level of your gear to make you more likely to receive items that both work for your playstyle and are around the power level of the items you have equipped.”

    6) GC is also getting re-worked around the same logic: “For starters, we’ve removed the concept of “tiers”. Every rank of Renown is equally valuable. Whether you go from rank 1 to 2, or from rank 700 to 701, the possible pool of gear that can come from a Renown crate is always based on the current power of your character, so that it will be relevant for your character. It may not always be an upgrade but it will likely be close to your characters’ power level.”

    The renown level you have seems to be only a way to flex on others, maybe it will be connected to Legacy titles/achievements.

    7) They’re also addressing the existential issues of RNG, which is not getting anything because, well, RNG: “We have built-in several layers of RNG (random number generator) protection for set and tactical items. If a player hits a bad luck streak and doesn’t get a set or tactical item after a specified number of item drops, the game will force the next loot drop to be a set or tactical item!”.

    8) There’s also stuff about new currency you can get that will also supposedly help you if you’ve got bad luck with either the GC or ops drops, but it’s seems too RNG to be reliable, at least in theory.

    All in all, sounds like a pretty good update to me. Time will tell if all of these promised changes turn out the way they sound when they release the expansion.

  • Alexander Delorean

    Dulfy is dead AF huh?? At Vulkk we got news and patch notes and here nothin since apr 30….jeez

    • Darth Ji’inx

      She’s away dealing with stuff IRL. No idea when she’ll be back.

  • Mosco

    Hey folks,

    A few updates! As you have noticed the queue and latency issue has
    returned on Star Forge. Also, it is starting to occur on Darth Malgus as
    well. We think we have isolated what is causing this issue and are
    working on a fix.

    The change that we made where a % of XP earned is converted to conquest
    points is what is causing the performance issues that you are seeing. In
    order to address this we are going to need to revert that change later
    today. To account for this we are going to once again increase the Guild
    bonus, basically we will revert these changes from 5.10.3:
    A percentage of all experience earned is now converted into Conquest Points.
    The multiplier for earning Conquests points in a Guild has been reduced to 2x (down from 3x).

    We will need to restart all servers briefly to apply this fix and will
    happen in the next couple of hours once we have the fix tested and
    ready. I will share more details on maintenance timing once I have it.

    Thanks all.

    Mourners are asked to contribute to the Cartel Market so we can get dulfy rele….I mean, locate dulfy.

  • ramone

    It is almost impossible for me to play this game right now, last December i could but right now horrible lag (lag between level3 and Congentco mostly) and there’s nothing i can do, lag is so high thad dc’s are happening now.
    + Dulfy apparently is gone with parseleaderboard so….time to forget about SWTOR.

  • Jep Fareborn

    When Dulfy was told by Bioware that she wasn’t going to be highlighted or spotlighted as a SWTOR ‘Content Creator’ because of her unmoderated comments section, she said, “FUQ it! I’m out!”

    • gua543

      Not sure how you got that information, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she hasn’t been featured because of that. Honestly, there are some pretty vile people here and I understand Bioware not wanting to give them any attention.

      • Vergansito

        here and there starting with Mosco.

      • bob

        as per the disqurd she hasn’t been doing anything due to personal issues. This has nothing to do with being featured or not. If you notice her entire site hasn’t been updated since April even the other games are dead

    • Bakgrind

      That could very well be. The timing of all this is rather suspect because “news” sites are going after youtubes gaming content creators as well. It sounds like it’s all part of the vox adpocalypse that is happening.

    • Bryan

      That’s pretty shitty of them to do that. No wonder the game is so bad if they are that afraid to accept criticism. Nope, sweep the negative comments under the rug and pretend.

      https://i.imgflip.com/3348f2.jpg

      • abaddonsmummy

        Well there’s criticism……then there’s Dulfy comments section XD

    • abaddonsmummy

      Is that true, because she hasn’t updated any pages for a long time, including the other games.

    • Gabriel Mican

      Even if that is true, she could have take 1 min and made a post here explaining what’s going on. This site has been super helpful for us all these years, but our support for Dulfy has also helped the website.

    • Squatch

      This isn’t True. Someone posted this on the Guild Wars 2 page, but Dulfy has been consumed by her actual career over the past month, and is unable to upkeep the site. She is fine and healthy, but has to focus elsewhere. Whether or not she returns, is unknown.

  • folballz

    LOL Dulfy is not playing any games right now not only SWTOR but all of them, i don’t think Dulfy needs to be a content creator imo he has always kind of worked for Bioware in a certain way…but hard to tell with this comment section open to everybody perhaps not.

    • boob

      she*

  • ramone

    I just uninstalled this game, impossible to play since i installed it last week when Dantooine patch was released. Lag between Level3 and Cogentco link makes it impossible, constants long DC’s, fail loggins, etc…
    Hope Bioware is ready for the 6.0 release next September in all aspects, i doubt it, not resubbing until i’m sure.

    • abaddonsmummy

      I have no ideal what you’re talking about with Cogentco links, could be gibberish, I have literally no idea.
      Day 1 on Dantooine was unplayable yes, this is bioware after all, after that I had no stability issues at all.
      The bigger problem is what Dantooine is meant to be.
      It’s another Black Hole.
      That’s it, no grind for 252/258 gear like Ossus, and the reputation gear on Dantooine looks like it was made by a 5 year old.
      Black Hole was there to help you level up after the Story missions, so where does this fit in?
      I just don’t get where this tiny expac fits in to the whole picture. Surely time would have been better spent making a new raid, hell even if it was just 3 bosses.
      We’ve just had Ossus, so we don’t need more dailies, especially ones that offer nothing for the veteran players.
      Pretty planet but a complete waste of time sadly.
      *sigh*

      • Darth Ji’inx

        I’m glad we at least got another event. Bounty Contract, Rakghoul, and Gree are getting a bit stale at this point.

        • abaddonsmummy

          But my problem Ji’inx is, is it an event?
          Rakghoul has an instanced worldboss and a couple randomish worldbosses that appear as well as dailys, Gree has instanced World Boss and again a couple of mini area bosses in the slug and wompa as well as dailys, Bountly contract is different entirely with easy bosses and slightly less easy bosses scattered around the galaxy, and in all the cases I’ve mentioned the reputation gear was decent and people ground reputation to get it.
          Dantooine is no more an ‘event’ than the Black Hole is.
          Even Ossus is more of an ‘event’.
          Your completely correct that we need more events, content even, and more is better, I just struggle to see where this fits in under any heading.
          Like I said in my 1st message, a small 3 man raid would have been better for the players but that just my opinion. 🙂

          • Darth Ji’inx

            I agree with your points, but most of the current events are built off of an existing map. Gree and Rakghoul at least have a ship/tunnel network, but Dantooine’s an entire planet (daily area size). Outside of main story releases, we don’t really get areas this size anymore. The other thing that makes Dantooine unique is that is was created for an event, but it actually has different content when the event is inactive.

            • Ben Gimson

              There’s no much content when it’s not active tbh. I’ve enjoyed it, personally, but it could’ve been better. A world/raid boss, better armour etc. Also a damned waste not to make use of the enclave ruins and the crystal cave from kotor 1 and 2. They could have done some interesting content around those locations.

              • Darth Ji’inx

                My main disappointment is the rep shop. The armors look like junk/reused pieces, the decorations are boring, and the interesting items (walker and Ugnaught companion) aren’t worth the effort. :/

              • Ben Gimson

                Tbf I was actually very happy with the decorations (ignoring the fact that too many were centrepiece hooks). More garden stuff was very welcome.

                But yeah, the armours and the mounts were all a lazy reuse of assets, which was quite disappointing 🙁

              • Darth Ji’inx

                I’m not saying that the decorations are bad, it’s just that they’re more utilitarian than flashy or ornamental. It’s great that we have farming decos for those who want a more agricultural decorating theme, but where are the banners, the Jedi artifacts, NPC decos etc.?

                Other rewards:
                I mean, that is the Nova Blade garb, but the Blades use old outfit pieces. For me, the Ugnaught is the most exciting thing, but he’s not worth Legend rank and 50 currency, especially since he’s just a generic Ugnaught in appearance.

                What makes the vendors even worse is that there are no faction-specific items and the currency isn’t legacy-wide like all other event currencies. :/

              • Ben Gimson

                Yeah they fucked up on the anti-legacy nature of Dantooine. More decorations would have been great, I can get behind that. Always welcome more NPCs to make SHs feel a little less sterile.

                I didn’t realise the companion was an Ugnaught though. Got enough rep tokens and currency to pick it up but I was hoping it’d be something cooler. You spoiled the surprise 😛

                It’s been something different to do anyways. I wasn’t expecting too much, and hopefully they’ll make up for the failings with the expansion. Hopefully.

              • Darth Ji’inx

                Oops…

                This would have been a great opportunity for some Nova Blade NPC decos. :/

              • Ben Gimson

                Yeah, and farmer NPCs. Ah well, tis done now.

            Having said that if you try to use your common sense just a little tiny more, you’ll read down below http://www.congentco.com trololo, so hard difficult to google that… even you found it and knows what i’m talking about, anyways the other guy obviously lacks that, he may thought i’m talking about witchcraft or something like that. Anyways you perfectly know now i’m talking about lag, hops, ISP’s, backbones, etc…

            • ramone

              Having said that, lags continue for me since the Dantooine expansion, i don’t expect EA to do something, my ISP can’t do anything and me even less. So let’s wait for September perhaps it will be solved by that time… perhapt not, still enjoying a lot all this cluster swtor F, a LOT.

    • Ben Hodges

      Just another one of these dog kickers whos life has stopped from dulfy not posting here anymore. Good lord man just move on and find something you like and can play ..ITS OVER FFS

  • Marián Mojžiš

    Omg she has her own real life, she is maybe on a vacation or something faar away from PC games and internet. So stop writing bullshit like: “she is dead,..” etc.. you noobs. Is summer go out from PC, there is whole summer to wait until new exp. I will not install game before DLC launch 😉

      Not me. Kind of glad to not see those cartel market updates.

      • gua543

        You can’t blame Dulfy for keeping track of anything related to TOR. Blame Bioware for making Cartel Market updates their primary activity. And tbh, it was somewhat helpful to know what was on sale.

  • Kyacho

    Is there any other related website like this?

  • Fortissimus

    This was probably the best website for SWTOR info followed by TORcommunity…. both are dead now….sad to see Dulfy abandoned and left in shambles 😥

    • Alicia Keys

      i hear ya , this is lame. SWTOR such a dying community, i mean the game still lives, but the community is bare bones anymore

      • Fubarz

        maybe maybe not enjoy the game while it last 😀

    You idiots know nothing she is playing another game until the new update then she will be posting daily you all assumed and look your all wrong

  • Sorrai

    Does anyone out there have in update on Dulfy’s status? I don’t often look at the official forums but I noticed a recent Dev Tracker post that listed all active community contributors for the game along with links to their sites. I thought it was a real shame that Dulfy was not included, or even mentioned, and that she went on hiatus before getting the recognition that she deserved for diligently running this site for so many years. I had always assumed that this sight was administered by a collective of people who all helped share the workload. To think that anyone would be willing to put so much time and energy regularly posting all that information spanning multiple games is an incredible feat that deserves recognition and gratitude by both the community and game developers alike. All of the guides, walkthroughs, data tables, preview images, dev tracker posts, datamined info have been an invaluable resource for us and I want to express my sincerest thanks and deepest appreciation for all the work Dulfy has done for us. I hope she returns to keep this going or passes the torch to another who has the same dedication and passion for these games, but in the event this does not happen then I am incredibly grateful for the years of service and devotion she and any others who contributed here.

    • aMillionDreadful

      So much this! Dulfy should be getting major recognition. I hope SWTOR finds a way to recognise her in absentia.

  • bahaha

    game over, game ded! bahaha

    • 平賀才人

      The only dead* here is Dulfy. .-.

      • Bryan

        I guess that depends on your definition of dead. If you go off of the early expectations and early numbers, the games been dead since like 6 months after launch and it’s only been dying further with time. It’s an empty hollow husk of what it had the potential to be and it’s a shame. It’ll finally die whenever EA shuts down Bioware of the Anthem debacle, which could be any day now. Probably just waiting to get one last influx of cash from the expansion, then kill it a few months after it comes out.

        • bahaha

          Exactly man, my same thoughts, from the strictly point of view of course the game is NOT DEAD pretty much because it is still online and there are a few players still. From the decent MMO point of view this game has been ded for ages, although it may resurrect for a little while for 6.0, i’m resubbing for that of course but only for 2 months.

          • Bryan

            Yeah there’s always an expansion bump, and I think that’s true of most MMOs so considering the bump worth mentioning IMO really isn’t. I’ll be back for a month two probably during the bump. But that further proves the deadness and lack of potential. People like the game enough to keep coming back, but they have done a terrible job at making re-playable content that keeps people engaged enough to stay subbed and they only seem to be getting worse.

  • Gerald Moogle

    It’s a shame this site is dead now. It was the best SWTOR site out there and also covered several other games of course.

    I always thought it was a lot of work and I was amazed Dulfy kept it up for so long. But I guess she’s done with that now. And so life moves on. Although SWTOR doesn’t, as this game has been in maintenance mode for years now.

  • Khnum21

    WE LOVE YA DULFY!!!

  • RandomFan

    DULFY we all miss this darn site BAD!

    I for one am happy your probably finally getting some on the regular (seriously I am), but it sux for us because it was the best place on the net to get swtor info (and to laugh at reading the anger exchanged between the white knights and the realists).

    You will continue to live in on our hearts!

    P.S.: Shawn Hargrave you will also be missed…

  • Alexander Delorean

    Close it already if u dont doin anythin.

  • Mosco

    We know you have all been eagerly awaiting to hear when we plan to release our Onslaught expansion and GREAT NEWS we’ve decided to push the release date for our new expansion to October 22, 2019…”Keith” Bahaha..

    Just Beware “Keith” Jedi Fallen Orden is November 15th….and i’m planning to play it as long as it gets released…

    .

    • CaptRogue

      ^Exactly.

      I’ve been more a white-knight for the game lately than a lot. But I’m
      honestly not going to be able to promote this as a “good thing”.

      You’ve had this game’s expansion known to yourselves for months LONG before we knew of it.

      This should have been PTS a long time ago. The only thing that should be
      on the PTS now is slight bug fixes/changes for perfection.

      Sadly even pushing this date back a month, we all know we will still be launched with a buggy game.

      IF you can’t put out an expansion till past date given, DON’T advertise it too early just to get people’s hopes up.

      I’ve played for many years on this game but honestly I’m burnt out. Game
      is stale. The Ossus gear grind was terrible! Lack of good new content
      long been with held. (Not to mention in game drama since last year.)

      The good thing was all this the patch promised in Sept. Now it’s been
      pushed back because of their ineptness. And to make matters worse the
      only “gift” we are receiving for being subs is another freaking race
      which means crap to those of us who don’t care to play all the races.
      (Plus give it a few months & that will be in the CM for CCs anyway.)
      Not including that if you’re capped on slots, you will need to buy more
      for you to access that or delete toons & the biggest thing being
      it’s still the same dang classes from the launch. lol

      It’s just honestly, to use the over used term here on the forums,
      . lol

      I would have understood a week or two extension too. But over a month really…. Come on…bad way to run a company.

    • PSBoy

      Death Stranding November 8th…they’re so FUp!!

    • Bryan

      That’s the lazies spin I’ve ever seen. Just calling a push of a release date as GREAT NEWS with no reason at all to feel great about it. *slow clap*

  • Batwer

    I think they will postpone it again. Probably at the end of November… https://media3.giphy.com/media/1tGN00iMCj3Mc/giphy.gif

    • PSBoy

      I’d say December instead… September looked too early since the beginning and they’re gonna barely start to test the next operation next month so….

  • Bryan

    We miss you Dulfy. Even though I haven’t played the game since the last expansion came out, I still come here regularly for news on the game. I wouldn’t even know about the coming expansion if you hadn’t posted about it. Good luck in whatever you’re doing now. I get it that you’ve probably moved on to better things and I don’t blame you, just know that you’re missed.

  • gua543

        I’m assuming you’re talking about his Watchman rotation. I play it as well and can assure you, it’s far less complicated than it sounds.

  • John Doe

    Still can’t believe Dulfy didn’t release an official word in regards of this website , after all it had an amazing following for almost 10 years now. She might have not made serious bank from this portal but still this is such a woman-like behaviour to jump ship and ditch everything and never look back.

    • Fallen

      Ah yes as they say a woman scorn… watch your back

    • Sorrai

      Still can’t believe that in 2019 we have to suffer from pieces of shit spewing misogynist comments because they are too far gone to realize just how incredibly fucking stupid they sound.

        • Sorrai

          The only pathetic thing on display here is your mental faculty. In one line you vomited “cuck”, “white knight”, and “incel”. You must be trying to earn your Human Garbage degree at 4Chan University. I feel sorry for you that you have allowed your brain to deteriorate to the hate-filled mess it has become. Please do yourself a favor and go find some joy and purpose in your life that does not involve trolling and regurgitating online hatred under the guise of anonymity. It’s a cowardly thing to do and it poisons your soul. You might be surprised how much better your life can be by not acting like a misogynistic fuckface.

          • Squatch

            It’s almost funny to see someone with so much hatred in his heart for women calling OTHER people incels. It’s a bold irony.

            • Sorrai

              I see you added “thot”, “TL;DR” and “rekt” from your lexicon of Dumbshittery. Better be careful or you will run out of all your words. It’s okay, though. Just keep going with “white knight” and “incel”. It is working great for you.

    • Vincent Muhhammad Pattison

      Totally seen that behavior plenty of times, no matter how you coat it – it is most prevalent amongst women, best part is that she most likely made a good buck; no one would tear them selves between so many projects for free. It sucks that there are so many horny blind-white-knights though.
      She absolutely acts like a kid, you know that time when you had a bunch of friends in kindergarden, but then the next thing you know you’re in school and forgot all about those guys (those were the good times, but fuck ’em, I’m on better pastures now biiiiiitch).

    • Fred Garvin

      Dont listen to “dulfy-fans” lol they a bit mentally retarded. If someone do something for free – heshe shouldnt expect regards or payment etc. And there’s no RULE to be thankfulgrateful -thats how the world works (kids). Im helping people without any expectations and not expecting even a thanks lol and thats ok. And when heshe is leaving website or whatever – heshe MUST write something about it. Like “Thanks everyone and bla bla bla”. Now its dead af and we dont even know is she alive or somethin. So you are right and those kiddos are not, maybe theyll get a brain someday.

      • Caitlin

        Yeah, she did this for free, so if she shouldn’t expect pay then you shouldn’t expect her to be invested in it or owe you an explanation when she’s had the fuck enough. Maybe she died, maybe she had a busy life, maybe she got tired of the notifications from absolute troglodytes like you two who got banned on the actual forums and couldn’t post your moronic bitching there.

      • Martin Ohlsson

        You just ranted on how there are no rules on what you have to do (be thankful), but you act as if she “MUST” give notice when she’s had enough of braindead slugs like you?

    • Squatch

      It’s man-like behavior to think you’re better than women and condescend them, and to feel entitled to something despite not actually doing anything yourself other than consume other people’s hard work. Please tell us more from your manly pedestal how much you know about women.

      • Martin Ohlsson

        Shhh, don’t bait the incels!

  • Jesse

    I really feel like we took Dulfy for granted. She did a lot of work free for us, and she brought many people in this community togethor. She got a lot of disrespect for just trying to be helpful. Dulfy if you read this, i appreciated all you did, and i hope some day you return. I remember talking to you on the PTS one time, you were a very kind soul. This abrupt leave of absence leads me to believe you didn’t feel appreciated.

    • Jesse

      Also i want to mention that i believe a lot of the time, people were grateful for the posts that dulfy made, even if they didnt show it. as bizarre as it sounds i think people want to have an outlet to voice their anger, and dulfy helped people be heard. But also, sometimes someone visits the site without any trace of them being there, and they were thankful for what she did.

    Hello everyone. I had a problem with the game, going into the game, there is no list of servers, maybe someone knows what the problem is. Thank you in advance

    • gua543

      The servers were probably down for maintenance.

  • bob

    with Dulfy gone where are people who haven’t played the game in over 2 years going to go and complain about it?

    • Bakgrind

      Every other site that posts any news or has a forum concerning SWTOR. After the new “expansion” released SWTOR’s very own official forum could not stop the posts of disdain subscribers felt about it. I have been gone from the game for over two years and I am still looking for a reason to resubscribe to the game. But, I am not finding one.

      • gua543

        Funny, all I’ve been reading about Onslaught is that it’s a step in the right direction.

        • Bakgrind

          I guess one could call a 2 hr “expansion” a step in the right direction because subscribers finally got some content that they needed. But, I think come x-mas people will be craving for even more content which will be a long way down the road and SWTOR will be back into its ho hum state again.

          • gua543

            Dunno why you’re bothering with this game if you’re going to be cynical about everything related to it.

            • Bakgrind

              No one is being cynical about it. My honest opinion is that at one time it was a good game and sadly it has devolved into the state that it is in. I guess all things come to that point at some time. But you know that the long time subscribes to this game deserves better.

              • gua543

                You can’t please a long-time subscriber to any MMO, because you just can’t keep up with releasing enough content to keep them engaged. TOR has more issues with content drought, true, but so far the only downside to this new expansion are the crafting changes.

              • Naq

                Eso’s quarterly releases are coming out fast enough I am actually falling behind.

              • gua543

                Are you a long-term player there though? One that actively engages in endgame?

              • Naq

                Yes, and they add to the endgame regularly. Swtor had us all tricked into thinking that a big title mmo can’t release content at a reliable pace. But it turns out everyone else in the industry is doing it. You just have to pull some of the focus away from the cash shop and the loot crates long enough to actually invest some of that whale money into content.

              • gua543

                I stand corrected then. My guess would be that all the bad choices the devs made around TOR have built up to a point where they just don’t have enough pull anymore with EA, to make a bigger investment in proper updates/expansions. But I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s like you say and they’re just diverting resources into other projects and/or doing the bare minimum to keep the subs engaged.

                Either way, I don’t deny things in general are kinda meh. And yet, my faith has slowly be rekindled in the current team with the last couple of updates (GotM raid, Ossus stuff, Onslaught). Sure, they’re pretty far behind most other MMOs. But I still have hope that things will return to the good old days of 3.0, in one form or another. Maybe I’m just naive, idk. If nothing else, I’m still having fun re-playing the vanilla class stories.
