In the news, we talk about Game Update 2.8.2, the Manaan lore article along with confirmation that part 2 of Forged Alliances will take place there, and Friday’s Galactic Strongholds livestream. The discussion this week is Chill talking through his experience of spending a day visiting the BioWare Austin studio.

3. Holofeed
  • Game Update 2.8.2 was deployed during maintenance on Tuesday.
  • The Gree event is back for a week, concluding next Tuesday (29 July). In the week prior to Game Update 2.9 (12-19 August), Bounty Contract Week will be on. That leaves a two week gap in which the hints are getting heavier than ever that the Rakghoul Plague will once again resurface.
  • There is developers may consider making it a permanent change.
  • Electronic Arts announced their Q1 FY15 results in their quarterly earnings call.
  • A ODS-1 present additional information about Manaan.
  • Charles Boyd gives a summary of SWTOR’s story content in 2014, including confirmation that part 2 of the three-part Forged Alliances story arc will take place on Manaan, and will occur in Game Update 2.9. The conclusion of Forged Alliances will set the stage for the next “major story” expansion.
  • Eric Musco (Community Manager) clarified that the limit of four player Galactic Strongholds is entirely due to not knowing the effect of having more than four Strongholds per player once they are made available. Given there are only four being released with Game Update 2.9, the limit is thus effectively meaningless, though may be enforced if performance issues are found with five or more Strongholds once they are added.
  • In Friday’s live stream, Chill decorates the Kaas City Apartment on Dromund Kaas. He is joined by Jack Woods (Producer) and Eric Musco. The archived Twitch stream is available (part 2).
