Community Round-Up: November 1st, 2012


It’s time for the 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 certain servers in The Old Republic™.

If you have nominations for next week’s Round-Up, please post them in this thread. Please remember the Community Round-Up blog is meant to highlight interesting, productive discussions and server events - not the most talked about forum threads.

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] Quesh PvP Event: “Day: Saturday, November 3rd. Time: 8:00pm EST. Where: Quesh (Meet at your respective faction bases).”
  • [The Ebon Hawk] <Hex> for Hire: World RP-PVP Event: “My thought is that once this patch drops, and there is a need to visit TOD, we'll have a wonderful recipe for a potential world PVP event on our server. In this vein, <Hex> would like to offer our services to those who are not inclined toward PVP to "hire" us as an escort to and from the vendor. If some republic guilds got involved (and other Imperial guilds), we could really put together a server-wide event that would pull the community together: PVP, PVE and RP all in one place. The real kicker would be that there would be an actual objective to "control" that would give one faction an advantage as it would allow that faction to more readily acquire HK-51.”
  • [Jung Ma] 3v3 tournament: “My guild will be holding a 3v3 tournament in Outlaws Den on saturday Nov. 3. Entry fee will be 100k per team. Lvl 50's only and all sides are welcome to attend. Msg me in game on shimigami or send me in game mail if you are intrested.”
  • [Jung Ma] Battle for the Bridge: Hoth World PvP Event (Hosted by <Esoteric Order): “<Esoteric Order> is happy to announce its first Server-Wide PvP event! We invite ALL Guilds and Players to join us on Hoth on the 5th of November to battle over the Crescent Canyon Bridge! <Esoteric Order> will be there to cause havoc for the Republic, and we hope that our Imperial brothers and sisters will join us! We also hope that the Republic will come out in force and try to stop us!”
  • [Master Dar’Nala] Community PVP event #1 Nar Shadaa Cantina brawl: “Where? Nar Shadaa. Club Ufora in the Red Light District. Meeting at the Slippery Slopes Cantina on the Promenade 8pm sharp. Alternate location: To be decided. When? To be decided.”
  • [Prophecy of the Five] 2 vs 2 Tournament 2.0: “Transcendence and HaVe a Nice Day (HVND) Guilds are excited to announce our monthly 2 vs. 2 player vs. player (PvP) tournament. Our kickoff event will be November 1st, starting 7 PM Central time at Tatooine Outlaws Den. This will be repeated the first Thursday of each month.”

Forum Round-Up

Cinematic Jedi Knight Storyline [video]: Nerumi has put together videos of all the cinematics from the Jedi Knight storyline.

POT5 OPEN WORLD PVP: Empire Invasion of Republic spaceport on Alderaan: Check out this epic battle that took place on Alderaan earlier this week.

  • VanderII: “Oh yeha that's nice: invasion; fighting with players, that is what I'm looking for in swtor”
  • LordArtemis: “I say bravo, and wish there was more of this. Raids like this make the world feel more alive and vibrant IMO, and really liven up things in games. Hopefully we see more of this kind of thing in the future.”
