Hey everyone!

There were a handful of good questions asked in this thread and it took some time to gather the proper responses.

Why can't players from certain countries take part in the contest?

Unfortunately, currently the contest is only open to those listed in the contest guidelines. However, we are looking into how we can expand into more countries in the future. Note that this is subject to local laws and regulations.

Can screenshots be taken from within strongholds, flashpoints, etc?

Strongholds, Flashpoints, and other instances that take place on the listed planets are acceptable. The same listed rules apply to these areas as screenshots taken in the open-world version of the planets.

For players with higher native resolutions than 1920x1080, how should they submit their images?

We are clarifying the guidelines to be "1920x1080 or higher resolution". As long as the submitted ... Read more

Hey everyone!

In honor of our upcoming 10-year anniversary, today we announced an exciting contest and we would love to see all of you participate in it. For the next two weeks players will be able to submit screenshots of ten specific planets and one submission per planet will then get turned into an in-game Stronghold portrait decoration that'll be available on the 10-year anniversary vendor. The people that submitted the chosen screenshots will also receive something special - a gilded version of the decoration that their screenshot was turned into, which only they will receive.

A full breakdown on the submission criteria can be found in this ... Read more

Hey everyone!

Earlier today we launch Game Update 6.3 'The Dark Descent'! In it we added a new Flashpoint called Secret of the Enclave, the first Galactic Season, and started Ranked PvP Season 14.

In this article you can find a summary for all of those aspects of the update, as well as links to more in-depth information resources.

I've seen a few people ask, but we don't have any plans on adding new music to our YouTube channel that is centered around Game Update 6.3 (yet). The team is still discussing that and if anything is uploaded, I will create a ... Read more

Hey everyone,

I wanted to let y'all know that the team is aware of some lingering issues regarding a handful of players still not properly seeing their daily PO's. The team is working on a fix, but in the meantime if you're experiencing this issue, you can just omit that part of the system in your feedback/testing.

Hello everyone!

Earlier today we had a SWTOR team livestream. In it we talked about some of our recent updates as well as officially announced Game Update 6.3 - 'The Dark Descent'. After seeing how much the community enjoyed the pre-recorded interviews with our voice actors, we debuted two new ones featuring Moira Quirk and Gideon Emery. The recording is available to watch now on Twitch and I included timestamps for each segment. If you prefer YouTube, I will include the publishing schedule at the bottom of my post as well.

Hey everyone!

We've updated the PTS and it is once again open for testing. Here is a list of the Uprising fixes we've implemented:
  • All: Full Level 75 rebalance of all Uprisings. This includes enemies and bosses.
  • Destroyer of Worlds: Reduced the amount of Trash by about 50%
  • Destroyer of Worlds: Adjusted range of Skurr & Velloc attacks so they now only hit players within their AoE indicators.
  • Done and Dusted: Enslaved Sand Bats now have a reasonable amount of HP
  • Firefrost: Environmental snowfall in the final boss now actually can damage the player.
  • Fractured: Final boss no longer resets randomly after defeating Lord Anril.
  • Fractured: Enemies no longer can go through a specific gate while it's closed.

Hey everyone,

Below the list of the known issues, you may experience while testing the changes to Amplifiers and Uprisings.
  • Some text is not being displayed properly for Rarity Locking, but the locking feature and price are working correctly.

Hello everyone!

PTS is now live! Players can experience the changes to Amplifiers and Uprisings.

Amplifiers
The team reorganized the Amplifiers user interface (UI) for a better browsing experience. Previously, Amplifiers were organized in alphabetical order. Now, they are organized with a tree-based view:
Players can expand a specific Amplifier type to see all the Amplifiers available in that category or collapse the category to hide them. This change also reduces the default list.

A new tier of Rarity has been added to improve the visibility and readability of Amplifiers. In addition to the existing tiers: the Premium (Green), Prototype (Blue), Artifact (Purple), and Legendary (Gold) tiers, there is now a rarity for the lowest tier: Standard (White). No Amplifier values and no odds to obtain specific Amplifiers have been changed.

We�re also introducing Rarity Locking as a way for players to exchange credits for greater ch... Read more

Hey everyone,

You can now test the changes made on Uprisings on PTS! All Uprisings are now available at level 75 with a rebalance of the difficulty and time they take to complete. Along with those changes, loot drops have been increased in all Uprisings. You will find more information about those changes here: Welcome to the 6.2.1 PTS!

Below you can find the type of feedback that the team is looking for:
  • Do you feel if the Uprisings are content worth doing?
  • Do you think that any of them seem more difficult/annoying than others enough that you would avoid them?
Let us know your thoughts below.
