Community Round-Up: May 20th, 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.
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.
- Ranked PvP: “Here is the ... semi-official Begeren Colony thread for organizing ranked PvP. If you have a team, post when you'd like to queue and the degree of competition you seek, and let's keep ranked alive! Friday nights are now the new popular ranked night, with guilds such as Faceroll Syndicate, Ascension, ITK, and Infamous queuing. Contact Feken (Republic, Infamous), Scyn (Republic, Ascension), Mey/Jaadis (Imperial, Illegal Test Kitchen), or Yidden (Imperial, Faceroll Syndicate) for more info.”
- Stars of the War Fashion Promenade: “Each participant will get a chance to show off his or her favorite outfit. Each entry will be scored by a panel of three judges based on their own assessment of attributes such as creativity, attractiveness, etc. (1)”
- Clan Epsis hosts the Kote'Akkanir (Recurring Arena, Thursdays): “Clan Epsis is hosting a weekly "Fight Club" in open PvP areas such at Outlaw's Den and Southern Illum. These fight clubs will be arenas for teams to duke it out on wager-based combat. Teams will consist of individuals, 2's, 3's and at most four on four.”
- Rated WZ Tournament: The Hutt Cartel Server Cup! May 24th: “Well today is your lucky day. Ranked comms. Credit Bets. Honor. Pride. Glory. All could be yours. A tournament like none other will be held on Friday, May 24th (may be changed if another night provides the most amount of guilds the ability to compete), Time TBD. The rated tournament will be held by double elimination. Only one tournament requirement to join: one person from each competing rated team is required to have a live or recorded stream of the match (preferably not a node guarder...). These videos will be submitted to dailypvp.com to be reviewed by Flavored to promote Rated Wzs on Jung Ma.”
Prophecy of the Five
- **World PvP Event* June 1st**: “It is that time once again people! I am hosting a pvp event on the planet QUESH to raid the republic base named the Republic Mining Camp. The date of this event is saturday June 1st at 8pm EST.”
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 Red Eclipse
- 1v1 Tournament 24th May: Outlaws Den: “On Saturday 24th May, there will be a 1v1 Tournament at the Outlaws Den on Tatooine.”

There is no buy-in but there will be credit prizes. Tournament size will be capped at 64 entries, so follow the steps below and register quickly. When: June 1st from 1-5pm EST and continue, if need be, on June 2nd at 1pm EST.”
