Hey everyone!

For those of you unable to watch the livestream today, here is a bulleted list of everything the team discussed. If you would like to watch the VOD, you can do so here.

  • SWTOR is now on Steam! A full breakdown of everything related to that can be found in the article we published today.
  • Brief re-cap of 2020 so far (Alderaan Stronghold, Conquest, Swoop Rally etc.)
  • Things to come in 2020:
    • 6.1.2d will kick off the start of PvP Season 13.
    • 6.1.3 - Phase 2 of Steam.
    • 6.1.4 - New seasonal event called Feast of Prosperity
    • 6.2 - Holidays this year. We had initially wanted to get 6.2 out at the end of the summer, but the team decided that in order to deliver the true vision we want players to experience, releasing it around the holidays would be best.

Game Update 6.1.2d
  • We are going to start showing the rewards at the beginning of the Season.
  • Team’s goal is to make Group/Solo Ranked more rewarding than it currently is and drive better play in Unranked.

Game Update 6.1.3
  • Steam Achievements
  • Next round of Gameplay and Content Updates

6.1.4 - Feast of Prosperity
  • New recurring seasonal event for Fall
  • Multi-week duration
  • Feast-themes minigame Missions (non-combat) for the Hutts
  • Group to defeat World Bosses for rare ingredients
  • Repeatable Daily and Weekly Missions
  • Earn Reputation to unlock special Feast of Prosperity rewards
  • Complete Achievements for Titles and prestige
  • New Reputation-gated Story Missions

6.2 - Echoes of Vengeance
  • Two story updates in one!
  • Continuation of Kira/Scourge/Satele storyline
    • Locate the missing ship and uncover the truth of its disappearance
  • New Flashpoint
    • Face new enemies and old as conflict erupts among the Mandalorians.
  • Showed off a few screenshots/concept for the new story content.

Gameplay and Content Updates
  • Conquests
    • Fine tuning to make the system work better.
  • PvP Rewards
    • Releasing Replica rewards at an increased rate. First pieces will come mid-Season 13. Legacy tokens
    • Committed to fixing Desync.
  • Crafting
    • Changes coming later this year.
  • World Design
    • Going back to refresh older planets/pieces of content to make the gameplay feel better.

Amplifiers
  • In an upcoming update there will be a quality of life update, reducing RNG and addressing feedback we’ve received.

What’s Next?
  • Next stream planned in late Summer.
  • “Cantina” stream in October (tentative)
  • Look for regular updates on the Forums on upcoming Gameplay and Content updates.

Cool, i & many others have been asking for many more non-combat type missions since beta, (why do Jedi, guardians of PEACE & Justice throughout the Galaxy, always have 100's of "KILL KILL KILL ____'s of _____'s" missions over & over again?!?! lol jeez ) so this is very nice to see.

Now then, about those GSF pve quests...?
Never tell me the odds!

Seeing that Onslaught was released in October of 2019 and it looks like there will not be any new story content, ops, or flashpoint within the next six months. Says that in 6.2 new story what about new ops and such?
"General, surely there must be SOMEBODY left who needs some killing, or some killing done for them."......."Sorry, Major. There's nobody left. You've killed them all. "

6.2 delayed to the holidays? lol I'll be playing the new WoW expansion by then. Good ole swtor and their yearly content releases with probably only 30 minutes of story.

This sounds interesting but I am a bit worried about "Group to defeat World Bosses for rare ingredients".

Are these out in the wild world bosses or instanced (Ops) world bosses?
Are these rare ingredients going to be bound?
Able to be sold?
Are these guaranteed drop for party members?
What are these rare ingredients used for?
