Community Round-Up: June 6th, 2013

Welcome to 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 begin!
