Hey folks,

Today marks the 5-year anniversary of SWTOR! If you haven't caught it already, Ben's Producer letter along with the 5-year collage are now live here: I know that like myself, many of you have been here since the very beginning. Even if you haven't, I thought this thread could be used as a place to share your favorite memory of the last 5 years. Happy anniversary everyone! Here is to many more years ahead of us .

Awesome, happy anniversary everyone! Not sure if the game can last another 5 years but I hope it will.

I've had tons of nice memories since vanilla, there are too many to list. My favorites would probably come from raiding. Like when we scheduled additional raid nights just so we could clear DF NiM 1-4 within the first week it released, and getting world 8th on that. Finally defeating Revan HM was also great. I have made my own slideshow for #swtor5 but since it's in German, many won't care about it.

Now off to find out if my toon made it into the collage...
Edit: Yay, I'm in the collage, 3rd row, 2nd column.

Many things this game does very well but creating 'the most evil family in Star Wars' was not a crowning achievement.

8 Individual class stories, amazing. 5 Unique Companions for each class amazing, force choking a Rancor Amazing. Baras, Jadas, Malgus, playing a smuggler that marries a princess all amazing.

Killing the Sith Emperor Amazing. Bringing the Sith Emperor back and battling him on Ziost, pretty good. Turning him into a family man with no explanation that even at the end of Kotet your still confused as to what he was doing. Really not up there.

That said is there any plans to have the writing team come in and explain all the back story and fill in the masses of plot holes left by last two story updates. There are a hell of a lot with obviously the Sith Emperor and the Eternal fleets usage and what happened on Voss in the Sith Warriors story spring to mind but plenty more that I wont touch on as I don't want to get accused of off topic or spoilers.

Congrats on making it this far. Tor was my first MMO and I have had a lot of fun with it. Hopefully we will see some new and exciting group endgame content soon. Respectfully, while still fun (I mostly pvp), I am finding doing the same content over and over a little stale.

Happy Birthday swtor!

I can't decide which is my most memorable memory, there are so many of them, maybe later I come back and edit.

Just wanted to say, happy birthday/anniversary!

I won't act like I'm happy with the current state of the game but I also am not beyond remembering that I've played SWTOR for many years and have had a lot of fun in it.

So here's hoping the game will get back to being fun for me again soon. It's what I'm hoping for.
Don't freak out, I'm just here by the grace of a referal. Nothing more.
