Hello everyone!

Today we put up a new PTS phase. In this players can experience the Feast of Prosperity event, Conquest changes, and more.

Feast of Prosperity

The Feast of Prosperity event features new Daily Missions, Weekly Missions, and mini-game activities that you'll be able to participate in on PTS. You'll also have access to an introductory Mission, where you’ll meet Gaboorga the Abundant and Duuba the Magnanimous, the founders of the Feast, and learn a little more about them and their ambitions. When the event reaches the live servers, a new Story Mission will unlock every week, but on PTS, you'll just get a peek at the introductory story mission. The rewards are not currently set up for the event, so don't be alarmed if you don't see any. We encourage you to check out the dailies, weeklies, and mini-games and provide your feedback in the thread below.

Feast of Prosperity Feedback Thread

Conquest Changes

After reviewing the Conquest values from Game Update 6.1.2, the team saw an opportunity to improve the overall experience for players. While there was a large increase in the number of Objectives a player could complete, there was an overlying point discrepancy, and the difficulty versus points ratio was off balance. This the easiest Objectives more appealing while turning players away from harder content. The goal with this round of changes is to make Conquest points reflect the time invested in completing Objectives.

Conquest Feedback Thread

In addition to these feedback threads, here are a few other changes available for testing on the PTS.

I'm glad you are making adjustments relative to the content, and are rewarding higher challenging things or longer things, and then taking some points off of the things like taxi or stuff like that. I'm VERY GLAD you didn't listen to the complainers of the conquest overhaul you guys recently did, and just nerf everything across the board like they wanted. Thanks for taking the time to actually observe REALISTIC changes, and not just listen to certain people on this forum that have been wanting you to nerf everything

The Feast of Prosperity sounds fun! I'll try it out on PTS later today.
Assuming it's basically Thanksgiving themed...

Here are some rewards that would make it worth it to me:

DECORATIONS!
* Serving droids with food.
* Small, medium, and large tables with food and/or themed centerpieces. Bonus if you can click the food to do an eating emote (similar to decos that let you click the cup to drink).
* Ambient Machine: Feast
* Jukebox: Celebration (all the songs with lyrics on constant loop, rather than 1-click per song)
* Harvest gourds -- large floor hook with a patch of dirt and growing gourds.
* Stack of gourds for floor small/medium narrow hooks.
* "Welcome Guests" small and medium hook wall sign.
* Colorful leaf garland wall deco.
* PROPER SIZED Hutt Lounger deco for medium/large hooks (current hutt lounger is human sized!).
* Kitchen appliances... or at least a stove for indoor cooking.
* Stack of crates with food supplies (the ones from the Empresses party on Zakuul are fine).
* ROAST GORAK VENDOR! A nice Floor Large deco like the Czerka food vendor, but the guy from Asylum.
* Personnel in festive clothing doing various friendly emotes, sitting in chairs, etc.
* Nalargon player. We have a Nalargon but nobody doing the right pose or emote to play it!
* Drum player. What band is complete without a drum set?
* Standing candelabra lights (that actually give off good light over an area).
* Chairs we can sit in properly by clicking on them, just like the chair on the bridge of our personal ship.

And for some low hanging fruit --
* Any of the decorations which were already made and can be seen in the deco inventory, but have not yet been available in-game.
* All of the Feast decos on Fleet.

PETS
* Akk dog in a cute costume
* Endorian turkey
* Baby purrgil

MOUNTS
* Holiday bantha!
* Fathier (from the latest trilogy)
* Blurrg (from Rebels and Mandalorian)
* Ronto (several colors/patterns)
