Community Round-Up: Events and Forums July 5th, 2012

Hello everyone!

Welcome to this week’s Community Round-Up. Every 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 begin!

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

Funny guild and character names!: DarthShredKing asks the community to share some of the most hilarious guild and characters names you have seen while playing The Old Republic. Some of your answers included:

  • Anzel: “<Crouching Tauntaun Hidden Wookiee>”
  • WDBroome: “On Fatman I've always liked Seal Team Sith and Peanut Butter Jedi Time guild names.”

What legacy name did you choose? Proudly post yours here!: While we are on the subject of names/titles, ColdLogic created a thread dedicated to sharing your Legacy name and why you chose it.

  • KharonKleoni: “My legacy surname is Lettow, it's from The Legion of Lettow, the first group of dark Jedi. Well at least according to Master Gnost-Dural!”
  • DonRab: “Ransom. As a homage to one of my favorite sci-fi trilogies, and because I think it makes an awesome last name.”

What Is Your Favorite Flashpoint?: Some of you discussed which flashpoint is your favorite and why:

  • NefNef: “Foundry because of the story. D7 because of the more interesting boss fights.”
  • Crixaliss: “Colicoid - this was a great change from the standard tank-and-spank boss fights, I loved this and really hope they one day make a HM version of it.”

Trooper Mottos: What motto best fits your Trooper?

  • ChaoticDynamite: “Looks like you called for the Republics Finest.”
  • Kytea: “This assault cannon is mine. There are many like it, but this one is mine.”

Theme songs for your toons?: Every hero needs a theme song! Here are some of the songs you have chosen for your characters:
