Community Round-Up: April 18th, 2013

It’s time for this week’s Community Round-Up. Each week, we scour the forums, fan sites, and reddit, finding some of the most interesting discussions in the community as well as player-created events happening on servers in The Old Republic™.

If you have nominations for next week’s Round-Up, please post them in this thread.

Let’s get started!


Server Events

Get to know the community on your server by participating in player-created events. Below are some occurring this week! Be sure to take a look at the Server Forums to find other events happening on your individual server.

Begeren Colony

  • Tournament of Champions 2.0: “Our last tournament was last time was a blast and we hope to take what we learned from last time and make this tournament even more fun and more standardized. This tournament will be held May 11th (Saturday) at 5 pst. The location will be the same as last time, the pit in Outlaw's Den.”
  • Ranked PvP: “With 2.0 here, regular, competitive ranked PvP will take a short hiatus while members get organized and geared. If you have a team together, post on this thread when you deem their gear "worthy enough" to begin queuing (gear does not make the team, but a team without gear will likely have a few difficulties!)”

Jung Ma

  • Ranked PVP Nights: “We are looking for the best nights to get our best teams out there. Wed, Fri, and Sun nights seem to be the best mix for us right now. We are currently gearing, practicing, and mix/matching the best groups but are hoping to find a couple nights each week to start queuing against other guilds again. Just wanted input from those other ranked guilds on what nights they queue the most so we can try to organize it the same way.”
  • New Mandalorian Crusade's: Monthly RP Hunts: “I am proud to present to you all a new storyline-RP monthly hunt that will be funded and supported by the New Mandalorian Crusade. These hunts will follow multiple storylines created by us. As our guild is Mandalorian-themed, these tales will follow as such. Each and every hunt will be taking place on the 3rd Saturday of a month, starting April 20th, as we have already hosted one this month.”

The Ebon Hawk

  • The Ebon Hawk Bounty Board: “Hello everyone. I'm AlyxDinas. Back on Lord Adraas, I ran a player bounty board which offered missions for IC open world PvP and even PvE. The original idea came from my friend Darth_Slaine, an Ebon Hawk player. He ran his own board as well for a time.With his permission, I've been allowed to continue the process. All participation is optional but it can lead to some really interested and suspenseful RP. I monitor the board close, keep it updated often, and generally do my best to provide a fun little "game" for people to participate in.”

The Harbinger

  • LFG +10 to all stats datacron on the fleet.: “Ask and ye shall receive.. Order 65 will be offering the +10 datacron this Sunday, April 21st around 7 pm PST. Please watch General Chat for annoucements on that evening.”
