I've heard that some of you are a bit confused by all the changes to SWTOR that came with patch 5.0. Here's a quick guide that should help you enjoy the upgrades.

Was the disturbance in the Force from my confusion that noticeable?? wink Thanks for posting this, it helps to clarify!

re: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Begeren Colony

A quick bit of important news --
The 250% XP and CXP bonus will be a 3.5x multiplier.

The folks at Bioware somehow thought that a 250% bonus was a 2.5x multiplier, but once fans pointed out that they had the math wrong, they increased the bonus to the promised amounts.

The bonus starts now and lasts until April 10. It stacks with XP boosters.

There is no better time to level characters! Happy

Also, don't forget to scroll up and read about that super-easy screenshot contest for the rare Daggerstar mount!

re: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Begeren Colony

I really miss horse racing in LOTRO and would love to get some pod racing started in SWTOR.
As you probably already know, racing is a player-hosted social event open to all classes and levels.

If you get a chance, please take a moment to reply positively to this post in the SWTOR.com suggestions forum about Pod Racing:

http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?p=9292620

Thank you!

It has four different kinds of PVP play --
* Open world PVP in specific areas where you can choose which faction to fight for that day.
* Standard instance-based PVP on a variety of battlegrounds.
* Huttball, a sport sort of like wild space soccer.
* Galactic Starfighter where you build, crew, and upgrade your ship in space battles.

I wouldn't say that PVP is the biggest draw of SWTOR. IMHO, the best part of SWTOR is the roleplay, especially through the cinematic class stories. Even some of the large group missions have RP build into them. The player housing system (both planet-based and starship) is really amazing. Of course, Begeren Colony is primarily an RP server, while other servers are much stronger in PVP, so take that for what it's worth.

re: Star Wars: The Old Republic -- Begeren Colony

This weekend is a great time to stop by for a visit!

Celebrate EA Play to Give in the Galactic Defender Event

From Friday, June 2 through Sunday, June 4, jump into Star Wars: The Old Republic and join the Galactic Defender Event to celebrate EA’s Play to Give program.


Through Play to Give, we’re celebrating the importance of inclusion and play and the positive connections it makes for all the diverse players around the world. Help us celebrate what everyone in our galactic community contributes to our galaxy!

This weekend, team up with friends new and old in battles across the galaxy and get rewarded*:
All players who log in during the Play to Give campaign receive the new ‘PL-2G Defender’ Battle Droid mini-pet.
Plus, if players join with 1 or more friends in 1 million or more total group activities across the SWTOR galaxy, all players who log in during the Play to Give campaign will also receive the ‘Galactic Defender’ in-game title!

Rewards will be delivered via in-game mail by Wednesday, June 7.

Here are some tips to join a group:

    Ask anyone in guild chat to team up.
    Invite another player to be a part of your group by typing ‘/invite [name of player]’ or you can right click on the player’s name in chat and invite to group.
    Click the Group Finder icon on your minimap and queue for multiplayer battles.
    Join multiplayer battles at Level 70 through Galactic Command (press CTRL+G).


Here are some suggested group activities in the game to get you started:

Flashpoints – Band together with three trusted allies to undertake these dangerous story-driven missions
Uprisings – Team up with three other players in erupting fast-paced, action-packed battles at Level 70
Operations – It’s up to your team of 8 or 16 players to confront some of the powerful threats in the galaxy
Player-vs-Player Combat – Make your mark in 8v8 PvP Warzones or 4v4 Warzone Arenas
Galactic Starfighter – Take your battle to space and experience intense 12v12 free flight dogfighting
World Bosses – Join with a large group to defeat the highest level boss on various planets called the ‘World Boss’
Story missions – From class missions to story chapters in the latest Knights of the Eternal Throne expansion, help your friends level up as they make their way through the story
Heroic missions – You’ll want to team up with one or more friends to take on these group missions that are slightly more difficult than your standard world missions
….and more!

EA is partnering with United Nations HeForShe, a global solidarity movement for gender equality and anti-bullying organizations PACER Center and Ditch the Label to give back to our player communities. EA will donate $1 million to these charitable partners that are already making a difference for a better internet.

Learn more about these EA Play to Give partners and stay in the conversation on all things Play to Give here.
