4. Holofeed
  • There was a press event for Shadow of Revan at the EA Redwood Shores campus in California on Wednesday 19 November. In attendance were both press and members of the community. The embargo on what was discussed will be lifted on Monday 24 November.
  • Game Update 2.10.3a was deployed on Tuesday.
  • When Game Update 3.0 goes live, all existing commendations (Classic, Basic, Elite, Ultimate, Planetary) will remain at 1000, there will be a soft/overflow cap to temporarily allow the hard cap to be exceeded when the conversion takes place.
  • The Obroan and Brutalizer sets (currently purchasable for Warzone Commendations and Ranked Warzone Commendations respectively) will be replaced by the two new PvP sets in Game Update 3.0. The existing PvE gear purchasable from vendors now will still be available in Game Update 3.0, but will be moved to a different vendor.
  • For Ranked PvP, the top 96 players across all Advanced Classes will be determined based on their current (not highest achieved) rating when Season 3 ends with the deployment of Game Update 3.0 on 2 December.
  • The mission dropbox will finally be installed on the Empire side of Ancient Hypergate in Game Update 3.0.
  • On Saturday evening, the last on her blog.
  • Developer blogs were published for livestream to cover this set of Advanced Classes.
