Hey folks,

Thank you for tuning into our Producer Live Stream with Ben and myself. Here is a recap of the things we talked about, for those of you that couldn't tune in.

State of the Galaxy
  • Group content - We know that group content is something that is very important to you guys. Although we have no further updates at this time on the PvE side, we did talk a bit about the new Warzone which is coming (more on that shortly). Also, we will have even more detailed information on the new Warzone in next month's Producer Live Stream.
  • GTN Search - Thank you to all of you who helped us gather information on the issue. With that information in hand we were able to resolve the GTN search issues yesterday afternoon.
  • Events- As mentioned previously on the forums, due to the issues in December we are re-running all three recurring events in January.
  • Conquest Rewards - By the end of the day today (Austin time) everyone should be receiving their missing Conquest rewards.
Changes Since Last Stream
  • The Eternal Championship and Bowdaar Recruitment have been moved to coincide with Chapter XI (Update 4.2)
  • A Blizz Recruitment Mission has been added into Chapter X (Update 4.1)
  • Reminder that Chapter X is launching on February 11th. Be a subscriber by February 1 to get the HK-55 Jetpack and 2 days of early access.
New Information:
Crafting
  • Skill increase to 550
  • New Materials
  • New craftable Gear and Mods
  • Mission re-organization
  • *more details coming via forum posts towards the end of January
New Warzone
  • Located on Odessen
  • New Game Mode - King of the Hill
  • Multiple Hills
  • Hills randomly spawn
  • More details coming in the February Producer Live Stream
Eternal Championship
  • It is a solo challenge
  • Contains ten encounters
  • Weekly Missions reward progress
  • Rare drops from encounters
  • Recruitment Mission for Bowdaar

If you have any questions or comments about the things we talked about, feel free to post them in this thread! Thanks everyone.

So just two questions,
Is slicing increased to 550?
Can you bring companions to the eternal championship or does it. Have to be just you?

On behalf of the entire community: regular, significant class balance updates (monthly or faster).

Also, you haven't been experimenting with faster class balance cadence over the past few months. That's a lie.

Would it ever be feasible to release content creation tools to crowdsource group content which BW could add suitable ones to the game in a non-canon section? Surely fan made group content which you can look over and add is better than no raid content? Guilds are dying without Ops content, we can't keep players when there's so many other big title games recently released and there's no content for longer term players here.

Many games out there live on community generated content for years. You must have the content generation tools in house that could be polished and obviously will have to be adapted but it has to be technically feasible on some level. Even if it's a MArio Maker type system using assets already in the game. You already used to have a system of power users in the community that were intended to work as a filter or shield and added with BW oversight then community content packs could be moderated correctly..

It must be a workable system if people really try and it will keep the non-canon content moving forward for ages. We can't go on with the lack of Ops content. People can't run the same raid for 12 months at a time, even if that raid is updated to a new level.

You're killing us BW. Nobody WANTS to stop playing the game, they just feel they've completed it.

I understand that Operations take time and your current focus is obviously pointed at bridging the gap of new players to group content, but honestly that feels a bit too late now. Those who were interested already put their feet in to test the waters & those who have been here from the start now have nothing new still. The only new thing you had that looks to be slightly challenging is now delayed until March. These sort of changes that push players into trying the new content should of came out during KotFE, not months later. It just feels odd and currently unwarranted when, unless you're going to surprise us, there is no new Ops to play & by the time of release most players would now tried out the SM group finder Operations.

I know you don't want to say anything concrete and such, but we really want to know: Is there going to be an Operation coming out on or before the final chapter of KotFE?

Rather disappointing that no new operations were announced tbh, also disappointing to hear that the Eternal Championship was pushed back a month, but hey, if it wasn't ready, it wasn't ready.
Bring back Jaesa, then I'll bother doing KOTFE on my Marauder
