Hey folks,

Star Wars Celebration is now just a few weeks away, so now is the perfect time to talk to you about what you can expect from us at the 2022 event. In previous years we have done everything from panels to a booth floor presence and of course, our Cantina event – and this year will provide attending guests with more exciting opportunities to dive into!

We hope you’re ready to embark on a journey throughout this year’s Celebration because there are going to be a number of places you can find us! In lieu of a Cantina, we will be joining the Star Wars Galaxy of Heroes team at their booth with daily opportunities for folks to have time to chat with the SWTOR dev team including Charles Boyd, Ashley Ruhl, Jackie Ko, and Phred Newman. These opportunities will include a poster signing, a chat about our collaborations with our friends on the Galaxy team to bring Malgus into Galaxy of Heroes, and more.

Inside of the Celebration Guidebook you will be able to find an interview about “Legacy of the Sith” along with what 10 years of SWTOR has been like for the team, with myself, Charles, and Keith!

Charles will also be appearing as a guest speaker on the “Crash Course Into the Old Republic” Panel!
  • When: Thursday, May 26, 2022 from 2pm-3pm
  • Where: The University Stage
  • Panel Info: Thousands of years before the Skywalker name was known throughout the Galaxy, there were the incredibly powerful Rakata, a massive Sith Empire, Mandalorian fleets pushing the Republic to the brink, ancient superweapons, and the redemption of one of the most infamous figures in Star Wars: Revan. Join our panelists for a crash course on the Old Republic and its historical significance, what makes it so appealing, as well as a chance to pick our experts' brains. Stick around for discussions from both Cosplayers of the Old Republic and the gaming focused SWTOR Fan Community!

Stay tuned as schedules are still being finalized, we will keep this thread updated with specifics as they become available. If you are out and about and happen to spot a SWTOR dev wearing a shirt with the SWTOR logo on it, say hi!

We look forward to seeing you at Celebration in a few weeks!

HUGE bummer there won't be a Cantina event for the 10th anniversary so we can all celebrate together!!

That being said, I'll take what I can get. If that means sharing a booth with Galaxy of Heroes and bugging Charles at a panel, so be it! The signed poster sounds intriguing though, can't wait to hear more about that.

No Musco or Keith listed in this post...... I'm going to be really sad if I don't get Musco Musings© at Celebration!

Instead of collaborating with the Galaxy of Heroes team to bring Malgus to a mobile game, the devs should be working on fixing LotS, because it is an utter disaster from the ability purge, to the horrendous UI, to waiting for Weapon Designer, to the lack of story and group content, to the usual bugs and bugs galore. A collaboration with a mobile game team to add a character from this game to their game should not be a priority, not ever for a game in such an ill state.
MMOs are supposed to add content, not remove content, not remove abilities, not remove the things that separate it from other MMOs, not remove immersion!!!

It's nice Malgus is getting added to a mobile game for SWTOR's 10th anniversary.

I DO have a phone, but I've never played SWGOH.

Happy 10th anniversary!

Bummer that there will be no Cantina, those livestreams were always a way for those of us who can't be there to be part of the community. It would also be nice if for our 10th Anniversary Celebration our game was getting new content instead of some mobile game.

I'd much rather see a livestream about future content...

One thing is for certain ... things are finally becoming clear!

IMO the genuine hearts and minds of EA have been revealed! I feel sorry for the development team.

Best of luck to those who continue!

So instead of fixing the game's balance or having an in-game event or something, you're working on some mobile game...

Yet another extraordinarily tone-deaf statement that reveals where the true priorities lie, even if the silent workers would rather be working to make good on the issues that would best serve the current players and subscribers funding this spiralling property.

Oh for a whistleblower with the strength of conviction to match the level of contempt being demonstrated. Where is our Jedi to match the Sith in control?

Here''s a suggestion for a truly respectable, honourable and groundbreaking approach to customer outreach - an online cantina to tell us in detail about all the fixes you are attending to, the challenges in progressing them and the candour to confirm all the fixes you won't be delivering and the reasons for that.

The game economy may be drowning in credits but there is a moral bankruptcy that seems to be plunging to a nadir not yet in sight.

Having reached GS L100 and felt hollow at the achievement it has finally dawned on me that 7.x has killed any desire to continue and complete the rep chase for the Syndicate or even do the bugged new content. I am now fully cognisant of how I really am just wasting time in this game universe. I begin my recovery from this bout of junkiedom today... unsub x2 inbound.

Currently renewing on monthly basis whilst BW actively make good on the mess of 7.x.y. Subject to continuous review and final reckoning at end of GS 2.
