Operation Victory Tournament - *Cancelled* | 03.02.2015, 03:42 PM
I know you guys will have a lot of questions so let me hit some of what has come up so far.

Why not play Temple of Sacrifice?
Two reasons for this. First, it was a numbers game. Only a fraction of the players who are in Ops at 60 are in ToS and so we wanted to make sure the first round was accessible to as many people as possible. Second, our plan was that the finals (the second round) would be played in ToS so that the Revan encounter was a part of the tournament finale.

Why not announce the rules sooner?
We wanted to make sure we knew exactly what we would be playing and how we would be playing it. While we were working on the Coratanni changes, we were hesitant to post any rules.

Why announce the cancellation so late?
We were exhausting everything we could to get the competition in place, to start on time. We didn't want to pull the plug unless we really felt we had too.

Hey folks,

I will cut right to the chase, we are cancelling our ESL Operation Victory competition. Our reason revolves around the Coratanni encounter. I know many of you raised concerns about the issues related to the encounter, and we agree.

We spent a lot of time this week testing bug fixes to see how viable the fixed version would be in a speed running environment. We have applied improvements to the Coratanni encounter as of tomorrow’s patch but there are still situations that could impact players focused on a timed run.

We thank you for your feedback around the contest and should we decide to do something like this in the future, we will let you know. Also, let us know your feedback on the concept of doing a speedrun contest. As we explore options like this in the future it would be great to know your thoughts.

[BUG] Gree Light Pillar (Blue) not added to decorations list | 02.27.2015, 12:04 PM

Good workaround!

That said, we are seeing if we can get this addressed in 3.1.1 so you won't need it.

Will we get an update next week from Eric??? | 02.26.2015, 02:57 PM

I know I've played several matches with a player that just stood there and reported him and other people on our server have been regularly reporting but I still see the same people queuing up.
Yup, I am in agreement with you on regular being at least monthly. When I stated regular updates it is our intent to give you an update approximately every 3-4 weeks throughout the season. With that, our first update should come within the next week or two!

Hope that gives you a little more insight into timing. I should have been a bit more specific than just saying regular!

Musco can we do anything about people intentionally leaving ranked matches? | 02.26.2015, 02:28 PM

In season 4 he is leaving matches as soon as he joins and match is about to start. I have reported him in game, numerous guildies have reported him in game, and all of us are watching our ratings drop.

The only thing we can do now is wait for him to enter a match, and THEN queue for a game, or wait until he is offline, and then queue for a game.

So we are all being penalized due to this one person, and we are not able to enjoy the ranked content that we are supposed to enjoy.

I know stuff like this happens pretty much on all servers, so will we be able to get any kind of protection from people like this?

Thank you
Hey Swatchie!

This is a good question. First off, thank you for being careful to not call out the specific player by name in your post. I appreciate you being cautious of our forum rules.

The answer to your question is that if you feel there is a player who is abusing ranked... That is to say, intentionally losing matches or doing anything that really is against the spirit of how ranked is intended to be played. You should send me those details privately. Again, to ensure you aren't creating a call-out, do not post that information as its own forum post.

We have regular and ongoing investigations into Ranked PvP participants to try to keep things like win-trading and "trolling" out of it. Still, if you pass me specific players I can make sure that we, at the least, investigate them for any possible suspicious activity. Any information you can provide (privately) can help us to work towards making the best PvP experience possible for you!

-eric

PS - Since this thread did a get pretty "call out like" around the specific player I am going to close the thread. I will pass on the info around this player for investigation though.

12 x XP for class-missions | 02.25.2015, 02:44 PM

When can we expect that to happen? I just pvp and dont want to pve for a month to get a new char to lvl 60.
Putting 12x as a Legacy perk is definitely one of the options we discussed, among many. I believe that is what we had talked about in the past, (on a stream or at a cantina) that it was one of the possible options. As far as I know, it is not currently planned to implement that as a Legacy perk at this time.

I hear ya. I myself never played enough of the event to get the "broken down speeder," which I always wanted. It is good to see a renewed interest in the event popping up on the forums. I will definitely pass the feedback on to the dev team.

Thanks!

I'd understand if no future events combining the two were planned but I would like to know if Bioware has any intention of ever bringing this one back, especially for those like myself who enjoyed it,
Hey Billupsat,

Good question for sure! I know folks have fond memories of the Grand Acquisition Race (sometimes called "The Chevin Event") and have asked about a return. As some have already alluded too in the thread, we didn't build that event with the intention of it being a recurring event and currently do not plan to bring it back. Should that change I will let you know but I don't believe it will, I expect that event will stay retired.

[Bug] 16 - player SoR story mode ops loot is bugged. | 02.24.2015, 03:04 PM
The 16-Player Operations should be dropping Mk-2 like the 3.1 notes mentioned. This is being addressed in 3.1.1.

Operation Victory Tournament - *Cancelled* | 02.24.2015, 11:25 AM
Hey folks!

Just to address some of the questions I am seeing...

Cortanni Encounter - We are working on some fixes around that encounter and intend to deploy them on Tuesday to ensure the encounter is in a better place before we head into the competition.
Rules Specifications - I have seen quite a few questions around things like skipping trash, boss mechanics, etc. We will be publishing all of that information in the full rules announcement with ESL by next week's start of the competition. We want to make sure the competition is fair, but also understand the nature of speedrunning.

Operation Victory Tournament - *Cancelled* | 02.23.2015, 04:30 PM
Hey folks,

BioWare is partnering with ESL to host our first ever “Operation Victory” tournament. It is a contest to “speedrun” our 8-man story mode Operations from Shadow of Revan. We wanted to give you about a week’s notice so you have time to get your teams together and establish your strategies.

We will announce all of the details within the next week but here are some of the key pieces of information:
  • The competition will be team based and all Operations run will be 8-man story mode
  • The qualifying heat will be one week – starting next Tuesday
  • The entire tournament will run over a few weeks with you submitting your timed runs to ESL
  • The best teams of the qualifying round will advance to the final round – winners based on details we’ll provide
  • There are some serious rewards up for grabs including, but not limited to, cash prizes for the top two teams, in-game items, and even a trip to be our guest at STAR WARS: Celebration!
Look for another post within the next week detailing everything about the contest. I know many of you will be showcasing your practice, and real runs, on Twitch. I will make a separate thread closer to contest where you can post your twitch channels along with dates/times! I am looking forward to seeing all of the great Operations runs.

Thanks everyone.
