Community Round-Up: Events and Forums July 25th, 2012

Hello everyone!

Welcome to this week’s Community Round-Up. Each week, we highlight some of the most interesting discussions in the community as well as player-created events happening on certain servers in The Old Republic™. While most of these discussions occur on our forums, we also try to look at what people are saying about Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ on other sites whenever we can.

If you have suggestions for next week’s Round-Up, please nominate 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 check out the Server Forums to find other events happening on your server.


Forum Round-Up

Making a character that "Fits": Breidr discusses some of the challenges in naming characters. Some of your helpful suggestions included:

  • Alricka: “For a name, as long as it isn't something utterly silly, you have a clean slate. I'm no linguist, so may be wrong, but I don't believe that there is any sensible linguistic naming pattern when it comes to Star Wars. You might have a Norse name, you might have an Asian name, you might have a Latin name... it will fit.”
  • Striges: “The on-board random name generator isn't bad. I've named two characters that I enjoy playing just by hitting the "random" name button until I saw something I liked, then played around with it a bit (drop a letter, add an apostrophe, etc) until I really liked it.”

Post your imperial agent looks!: Sahilio asks you agents out there to post your looks! Below are a couple faces of Cipher Nine:

Choosing your Sidekicks...: Lunafox asks the community if they could choose any companion from any class which would they choose and why? Some of your answers included:

  • Elliotcat: “I'd have the ultimate girl power team: Vette, Risha, Kira, Elara, and Ashara. Every time we finish a mission, we'd go to Nar Shaddaa to drink girly drinks and talk about relationships. It'd be the best thing ever.”
  • Darth_Cheesecake: “SW: Dark Jaesa, Kaliyo, Khem, Bliz, and Lokin. Just imagine the parties!”

[Guide] Endgame Reverse Engineering: Have questions about reverse engineering? Goldenstar has put together this helpful guide!

  • Goldenstar: “Added information about reversing mainhand/offhand/armor shells”
  • Ryanbeast: “Nice post!”

Funniest line in game?: Anysao asks the community which lines they found the most hilarious in The Old Republic.

  • Syart: “My Sith inquisitor, after helping someone: ‘Just doing my good deed for the decade.’ LOL, such a Sithy thing to say.’”
  • Phrase: “Player: 'First I took a durasteel can opener and some old Jawa juice and rigged a bomb...'”
