In the growing shadow of war, swoop fans across the galaxy descend on Dantooine, Tatooine, and even Onderon for the sport’s biggest spectacle—The All Worlds Ultimate Swoop Rally! They’re packing the stands, eager to take their minds off their troubles and cheer their favorite swoop gangs. The bikers are here to take on dangerous challenge courses, show off their piloting skills, and flaunt their souped-up swoop bikes.

Forgive me for being blunt...

This is one of the most ill-conceived quests I have ever encountered in any MMORPG. Having thirty people racing to a click a mandatory quest progression item with a lengthy respawn timer is extremely poor game design.

The argument that I should wait until the crowd thins out is inane given how excited many of us were to play the new story, which is now a royal pain in a womp rat's behind. 

Guess I'll wait a week. 😏



Edit: Per Otowi's point, I'll give the Empire a go. I should have specified I was playing Republic.

Hey so I'm currently doing the Port Nowhere mission on my lethality operative and I noticed that the Toxic Haze green cloud doesn't appear anymore. My op throw the thing on the ground and there's nothing that visually appear after that. Also lots of clippings in the cinematic when Rikan, his sister are talking with one poor lone mando that just get walked through like he is a ghost.

Update: I can't see any holocom conversation, as in if someone hold the com nothing appear above, and if I answer a call I see no one speaking though I do hear what they say.

Hey there! Can you run the repair tool and see if that fixes your issue?

The new graphics settings look fine solo, but if you're in a group of more than 5 or so people, the game is unplayable. Our guild on Star Forge just tried to do a rampage/world boss run, and it was impossible. The game froze and stuttered non stop, and every single person's game crashed at least 4 times in 15 minutes. I don't think the new graphics settings can handle big groups-- I definitely think thats something yall need to look into ASAP

I forwarded this to the team to look into. Thanks for reporting this. All the details are very helpful! If we need more info, I'll send you a PM.

as ALWAYS happens.. my game is not working its hanging up on the first screen (the new one)..every single time their is an update i can't get back into the damn game

Can you please give more details on your experience/what you are seeing? Is the button grayed out? Is the patch showing it's downloading? Are you using the SWTOR launch or using Steam? Is it possible that your AV is blocking the game? It would be helpful to know these types of details. Thanks!

Big issue: I can't seem to get the Hyde and Zeek quests for 340 gear components, just the conversation where they tell me to wait for them to have new stuff. I have completed all previous quests on all my level 80 characters.


Others in the game have mentioned the same issue, no H&Z missions on characters that have completed all previous ones.

Team is investigating! Thanks for the report. 


Players in the Asian-Pacific region have a new server to call home. The Shae Vizla APAC server is now open for all players!

This is an exciting opportunity for all players current, returning, and new who reside in the APAC region. Our established players can enjoy the nostalgia of the game, build new communities within APAC, and offer guidance to new players. Those who will be starting their adventure for the first time will have over 12 years of content, stories, and fun to enjoy in their Star Wars™ journey.

We’ll be playing alongside all of our players in celebration of launch. We look forward to seeing everyone on the Shae Vizla server!

Hello folks! 7.4 is fast approaching and I wanted to touch on some changes we’ve made in the interim between PTS and what you can expect on December 5th.

  • Seller Input
    • Instead of putting in the unit price and having the game calculate for you the buyer’s price, which was an adjustment from the way it currently works in the live game, we’ve changed it back to letting the seller enter the buyer’s price. This is closer to how it works in live currently and should ideally make it easier for sellers to input a price that is competitive with other listings.
    • We still show you the unit price you will receive as the seller and calculate the total expected profit, taking into account any fees.
    • The Buyout Limit is still equal to the new 3B Seller’s Unit Price + Buyer’s Fee. (Total Limit = 3,447,780,000)
  • Claim slots ...
