  1. Happy B-day Xugrel

    Happy Belated... Sir!
  2. http://www.swtor.com/community/showpost.php?p=9437061&postcount=72 ... I ... I just ... /sigh post content: Hey folks,I verified with the team and the current implementation is intended, but I am seeing some confusion around the perk so let me explain how it works. Every time you hit Command Rank 300 on one of the mirrored base Classes (more on that in a sec) you get a 25% bonus to the base value for CXP gains. Since there are four sets of mirrors, you can gain four stacks of this buff, up to a total of 100%. It looks like this: Any Knight or Warrior to 300 adds +25% Any Consular or Inquisitor to 300 adds +25% Any Smuggler or Agent to 300 adds +25% Any Trooper or Bounty Hunter to 300 adds +25% Separately, I know there are questions about how we communicated (or didn’t) around this perk and so let me explain what happened. When Keith put information on the perk in the roadmap, it was meant to be fairly general, but we realize if we had been more specific we could have saved some of this frustration. The requirements for the perk were born out of some technical limitations which prevented us from giving you a bonus for any character which hit 300 (such as multiple Sith Warriors). As I was gathering the notes for 5.5, I didn’t realize that limitation had been put in place and it wasn’t caught during internal review. None of this is meant as an excuse, you should have had this information before today and it should have been in the notes. I apologize for that not being communicated, that’s on me. The above information has been added into the patch notes for clarity, we hope that you still get to enjoy the benefits of increased CXP as you rank up in Galactic Command.Thanks!-eric
  3. Meh... we'll find out soon enough.
  4. Keith's response: http://www.swtor.com/community/showpost.php?p=9428742&postcount=416 And this still doesn't explain what they mean by 'stack' because if it truly stacked... the first 300 (to unlock the principal 25%) would count as another 25%. If the 'new perk' is an addendum to the original perk, then I can understand the need for 4 characters for 100% because the 'new perk' is an appendage, not a truly new perk. Post Text: Quote: Originally Posted by PhantomWarlock Hey, could you clarify if this is indeed a new perk or if the 25% stacking will be applied to the already existing legacy perk for increased cxp after having a character on command rank 300? It stacks on the existing perk. So, in the situation where you have four or more characters in your legacy at Command Rank 300, you will receive a 100% bonus to the base CXP value. If you decide to rank up additional characters you gain CXP a bit faster. Today, we do not have plans to increase the percentage above 100%. --Keith-
  5. Link: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?p=9427692#edit9427692 (consider me dubious thus far) I'd rather this be +25% per character, meaning 1 character to 300 buys the first bonus and spending the credits for the next bonus will give an extra 25% right away because 1 character is at 25%, then each character after will be +25%... so 3 characters total should get you 100% bonus to CXP. Post text: Quote: Originally Posted by Preminous Eric, hopefully you can help me out on this. The language states: "Legacy Perk – For each character that reaches Command Rank 300, we will automatically add an additional 25% bonus CXP to your entire Legacy up to a maximum of 100%. You do need to purchase the initial 25% perk, but the additional 75% will be free. And, YES, this Perk is retroactive, so you will immediately benefit once we deliver United Forces Foundation." Does this mean if I get three characters + purchase the perk, I get +100% CXP? Or do I have to have 4 to get the +100% CXP? Thanks! Basically, there is a new perk that you can purchase. That perk increases the CXP you earn in your Legacy by 25-100%. What the % is, is determined by how many CR 300 characters you have. My understanding is that you need 4 characters at 300 for the 100%, but I will verify. -eric

  9. Server Merges Announced

    LOL heya Bosh
  10. Server Merges Announced

    I'm guessing you will get October on Shadowlands if you have a premium account and you've played more hours than the other October. I certainly hope I'll be able to get Erudius (haven't even seen who the owner of that name is currently). Premium players (Subscribers) will have priority over Free-to-Play and Preferred Status players. Highly played characters will have priority over characters with less play time.
  11. Server Merges Announced

    I know I created Erudius on all the servers incase this happend. Just need to be quick on the rename when it pops I think. Though I have heard that the name gives preference to the longest played & subscribed character being merged.
  12. http://www.swtor.com/info/news/news-article/20171002 Text of the Article: Today, we’re excited to announce the United Forces update coming November 8, 2017. This new update will add a lot of value to all the gameplay systems that contribute to great multiplayer experiences. The primary benefit of this update is that it will be easier for you to join or reconnect with friends, discover new guilds and jump into multiplayer battles. To deliver these benefits together in one update we will connect multiple servers in each region together, uniting players across the galaxy. By joining servers as United Forces, grouping becomes easy and queues for your favorite Flashpoints, Uprisings, Missions, Warzones, Arenas, Galactic Starfighter, and Operations should be much faster. The United Forces update expands your connection to a galactic-sized community of players. We will be integrating our existing seventeen servers to five new servers, one for each existing region and language. Our goal is to make this experience as simple and rewarding as possible. When United Forces goes live, we will be offering new rewards for reconnecting with friends and guildmates in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Log in and play between November 8 – November 27, 2017 to get new rewards*: Simply log in to play to get the new Mini Mogul NM-1 Mini-Pet, inspired by one of our classic Operation bosses, Karagga the Unyielding. Earn the merciless Darth Hexid Companion when you complete three PvE or three PvP missions through Group Finder by the November 27th deadline! Plus, unlock the new ‘United Forces Group Recon’ achievement when you complete three PvE Group Finder activities and get the new ‘United Forces Warzone Recon’ achievement when you complete three PvP matches through Group Finder! Finally, once United Forces goes live, get double rewards: Double XP, Double Command XP, and much more through November 14! NOTE: All achievements are unlocked in-game as earned. The Mini Mogul Mini-Pet and Darth Hexid Companion are delivered via in-game mail on November 28, 2017. We’re excited about what United Forces will do for all our players and the gameplay experience across the galaxy. Check out the FAQs below and join the SWTOR team on our Twitch Livestream on Tuesday, October 3, 2017 at 2PM PDT / 9PM GMT for more details: www.twitch.tv/swtor. We look forward to hearing your thoughts in the coming weeks! -The Star Wars: The Old Republic Team FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS Why Make the Change? Bringing players together as United Forces in larger numbers offers multiple benefits to players, first of which is the ease of jumping into multiplayer activities. Once the United Forces update is live, any group activity you would want to participate in will have a much larger volume of players queueing at any time that you are looking to play, including Operations, Flashpoints, PvP Warzones, Uprisings, and Galactic Starfighter battles. Communities of players, such as role-players, will have more like-minded players to join and play alongside. Plus, server-wide activities, such as Conquests, will have more fierce competition than ever before. What Will My New Server Be? As part of the United Forces update, your characters will be moved to one of five new servers. Existing Servers Harbinger Bergeren Colony Bastion New United Forces Server The Hot Prospect: (North America) Jedi Covenant Shadowlands Ebon Hawk Prophecy of the Five Jung Ma Star Forge: (North America) Progenitor Tomb of Freedon Nadd Red Eclipse Darth Malgus (Europe – English) Mantle of the Force Battle Meditation Darth Nihilus The Leviathan (Europe – French) T3-M4 Vanjervalis Chain Jar’Kai Sword Tulak Hord (Europe – German) How Am I Affected? It is our intent that this process will have very little impact on you or your account. Since Character names must be unique on a server, it is possible that when we create the new United Forces servers, you may need to rename your character. As part of the process of uniting the galaxy, we will communicate a specific set of rules to govern the prospective scenario where two names collide: Premium players (Subscribers) will have priority over Free-to-Play and Preferred Status players. Highly played characters will have priority over characters with less play time. To limit the challenge of duplicated names we will proactively remove names from characters that have not been played within the past 90-days or more and which are below Level 10. We know your character’s name is very important to you and so we are taking steps to ensure that you can hang on to the names you love to the greatest extent possible! The new United Forces galaxy will have no impact on your Guild, Guild Bank, Achievements, or Strongholds. While all Legacy Family Trees will reset during the update, for most players, there will be minimal impact on your Legacy. For more details on the process and rules please see the details below. What will happen to my character(s)? Currently, a Premium (Subscriber) account is allowed a maximum of 52 characters per server. Following the United Forces update, accounts with more than 52 characters on a server will be accommodated. You will still be able to access and play each of those characters. However, if you wish to make any new characters after that point, you will need to delete characters until you are back at or below the cap of 50. For Free-to-Play accounts, this process will work a little differently. Following the United Forces update, if your account has characters beyond the Free-to-Play limit of 2, then all your characters will be set to ‘deactivated’. This allows you to log in and choose which characters you would like to activate and play. Character Names In most cases, nothing will happen to your character name. Names will only be impacted when there are two of the exact same name on the new United Forces server at which point a governing system determines which character has priority: Premium players (Subscribers) will have priority over Free-to-Play and Preferred Status players. Highly played characters will have priority over characters with less play time. To proactively offset unnecessary challenges around character names, we are initiating a process of removing names from long inactive accounts. Any character that has not logged in for 90-days or more which has not progressed beyond level 10 will be flagged to rename their character. Friends List Following the United Forces update, you may see some new names on your friends list. The list will automatically update for any of your friends who changed their character name following the update. If no one on your list changed their name with the update, your friends list will be completely unaffected. Ignore List Your ignore list will not be affected with the United Forces update. Even if someone on your ignore list has changed their name, they will still be unable to contact you. Galactic Trade Network Listings Your Galactic Trade Network (GTN) listings will not be affected by the United Forces update. When you log in following the update, you will see all of your listings still intact. The update will be combining multiple GTNs together, so you may see a lot more listings than you saw previously. Mailbox The contents of your mailbox will not be affected by the United Forces update. All mail that was present in your mailbox will be there following the update. Appearance Designer “Stamped” Appearances Your stamped appearances will not be affected by the United Forces update. All of your appearances will remain in place following the update. How will Character Transfers work with the United Forces update? Players will be able to continue using the Character Transfer tool until October 24th. We will be turning off character transfers at that time in preparation for United Forces. They will once again be online shortly after the United Forces update. What will happen to my Legacy? Legacy Name and Level Since Legacy names are not unique, you will not lose a Legacy name as part of this process. However, if you have two Legacies which are brought together, the name and level of the highest level Legacy will be maintained. Ex: You have the Level 10 “Skywalker” Legacy on The Bastion and the Level 40 “Organa” Legacy on The Harbinger; these will combine into the Organa Legacy at Level 40. As always, if you wish to change your Legacy name you can do so via a Legacy Name Change from the Cartel Market. Legacy Unlocks Legacy unlocks are completely unaffected. If you have more than one Legacy, after the United Forces update, all your Legacy unlocks will be combined into one Legacy. Legacy Currencies Any Legacy-wide currencies, such as Command Tokens, are not affected. If you have more than one Legacy, we will combine these currencies together in your new Legacy. If this combination would push you over the cap, we will still grant you the currency. However, you will be unable to earn any more of that specific currency until you fall below the cap. Legacy Bank Legacy bank contents are not affected by the United Forces update. If you have more than one Legacy and they are integrated during the new United Forces update, then the sum total of the two banks will be added together. If this integration fills your Legacy bank slots, the extra items will go into a special storage called ‘Legacy Overflow’. This overflow will hold your extra items until you make space to withdraw them--you cannot place items into this overflow. Achievements All completed Achievements will remain intact. If your Achievements are integrated during the United Forces update, the completed Achievements from both Legacies will be combined. If you have an Achievement in progress, this will be unaffected by the update. If there are two Legacies which are being combined and they have the same Achievement in progress, the one with the higher progress will be retained. Strongholds and Decorations Active Strongholds will be unaffected by the United Forces update. If you have Strongholds from more than one Legacy coming together, both will be added to your list. If you have more than one of a specific Stronghold (such as multiple Coruscant Apartments), they will both be retained and accessible. If the combination of the two Strongholds takes you above the cap of eight, they will all be retained. However, you cannot activate new Strongholds until you return to a number below the cap. Decorations are not impacted by the United Forces update. If you have more than one Legacy which are combined as part of the update, you will have access to each decoration equal to the highest decoration among your Legacies. Ex: On the “Skywalker” Legacy you have 4 Basic Metal Chairs, on the Organa Legacy you have 15 Basic Metal Chairs. After the update, you will have a combined Legacy with 15 Basic Metal Chairs. It is possible that you may end up with more decorations placed than you own after the update. If this happens, you cannot place any more of that decoration until you go below your owned value. Reputation Reputation is not impacted by the United Forces update. If you have more than one Legacy which is brought together because of the update, the highest reputation between your Legacies is the value that will be retained. Family Tree All Family Trees will be reset during the United Forces update. After the update, you will have the ability to reassign affiliations freely. Cartel Market Item Stash The Cartel Market Item Stash’s current cap of 500 items will remain in place. If the United Forces update will cause there to be more than 500 items in your stash, those items can be found in your item stash. However, you will be unable to add any items to your stash until you go under the 500 item cap. What will happen to my Guild? There is no impact to Guild Banks, Strongholds, Flagships or other similar items because of the United Forces update. If your Guild name overlaps with another Guild name; each will have the name of the original server appended to the original Guild name. Ex: Your Guild “The Jedi Order” from the server The Bastion collides with, “The Jedi Order” from The Harbinger; the Guild names will now appear as: The Jedi Order – The Bastion The Jedi Order – The Harbinger Post-update, if either Guild goes inactive, disbands, or is renamed, the other Guild’s name will return to its original form - “The Jedi Order.” Conquests To ensure a clean transition of Guild battles via Conquests, we will be running the “Time of Peace” Conquest from October 24th – November 13th. Conquests will resume normally on November 14th. How is PvP Ranked Season 9 and the Leaderboards affected? PvP Ranked Season 9 will continue as planned. You retain the rank you had prior to the United Forces update. Immediately following the update, the initial Season 9 Leaderboard will appear blank. The Leaderboard will automatically update after you play your first ranked PvP match and you will once again see your name appear on the Leaderboard.
