Hey all,

I read the game has had a couple bonus XP weekends, and once with a 12x XP bonus even.
Recently I returned to the game after a 4 year 'break' to love this game once more.
Been back for a little over 4 weeks at the time of this post.

Now I am curious, these bonus XP weekends. Is that a returning thing?
And if so, when is the next one?

Merely curious

Thank you for any feedback.

V.

Probably early May for the next double XP weekend.

They don't exactly schedule them in advance and give us a calendar.... alas. They're usually timed to coincide with some kind of promotion or US holiday. The 12 XP thing was (so far) a one-off, timed to coincide with the Shadow of Revan launch, and ostensibly was offered to make it easier for people to get their alts to level 55 to be ready for the SoR expansion. As you can see from this thread, opinions are divided on whether or not it should be brought back.

Wow, are you posting from the FUTURE?

The game launched 3 years and 4 months ago.

Keep an eye on May the Fourth (and the preceding weekend). Something usually crops up for Star Wars day.

And again, I think on the anniversary of ANH's release, IIRC from other people on genchat talking.

Also, they'll usually show up around major holidays like independence day, memorial day, thanksgiving, etc.

They *MIGHT* have one around the May 4th "holiday" but it's much more likely that it'll be happening around the Memorial Day weekend since 2XP seems to show up on holiday weekends.

You know... I think I had something in here about a 2XP Weekend...

*Tait dumps his bag on the floor. Amongst various knickknacks, patch-related paraphernalia, and a worn newspaper front page stating that the "Rakghoul Plague Has Been Completely Eradicated Once Again," he finds a shimmering gold medallion...*

AH-HA! Here it is!

We're starting a 2XP Weekend TOMORROW!

Surprise!

Sweet. Thanks for the update.
Do, or do not. There is no try.
