Q & A with Eric Musco

Question:

On strongholds, how will cross faction stronghold planets work like Tatooine? Will a Jedi and a Sith be able to share the same stronghold?

Answer:

Each faction will not share the same stronghold. Strongholds on contested planets will be in different locations. Expect more information on strongholds and guilds ships by the end of the month of June 2014.

Question:

Will the max number of companions increase for sending them on trade skills?

Answer:

No, it would create an unfair advantage and lead more to a pay to win format.

Question:

When will we know the rewards for Ranked PVP Season 2?

Answer:

“We do not like to present the rewards and requirements till at least halfway through the Season”

Question:

Will classes be able to use weapons that are not intended for the class, i.e Jedi using a blaster?

Answer:

No, one of the reasons is to allow others to identify the enemy’s class in PVP.

Question:

Will there be a Dual Spec or Armor Switch upcoming in the game?

Answer:

“As players we would like to see it added, but not anytime soon. It is on the wall of crazy.”

Question:

How will Disney’s takeover of the rights to Star Wars affect SWTOR’s lore?

Answer:

SWTOR is not canon. It is part of the extended universe. It will not be affected in anyway. The only thing that can affect SWTOR is Lucas Arts. As in Sith will not be running around on unicorn mounts.

Question:

Will the size of the warzones ever get expanded?

Answer:

Probably not anytime in the near future.

Question:

Will we ever get target dummies for tanks and healers?

Answer:

It’s a good idea, but not anytime soon.

Question:

Will we be getting more casino games?

Answer:

Yes and something about a drunk penguin, but that was crowd getting to rowdy at that point.

Q & A with Jack Wood, Producer of Strongholds

Question:

How intricate will the decorations for the strongholds be? Will it be anything like Wildstar?

Answer:

Strongholds will be extremely intricate in that you will be able to place items as you see fit. Décor items can be created through trade skills and will be drops from mobs, flashpoints, and operations. This intricacy will be inherently Star Wars and will rival the housing of other games and it will very customizable.

Q & A with Andrew Horwitz, Associate Producer of SWTOR

Question:

Does the object at the top of the GTN building in the Outlaw’s Den will it be usable anytime or is it a special secret?

Answer:

We apologize for any thoughts that this may be used. As of now it does NOT do anything and it does not seem likely to be used anytime in the future.

Statement:

“I thank everyone of you for playing Star Wars the Old Republic. You guys are the reason why I do this and you guys in the community are just awesome. Thank You All.” *bow*

Message from Mr. Big:

The event was awesome and very personal in some aspects. The community was very good at trying to answer everyone’s questions and if they were unable to answer them they would get one of the other BioWare employees over to try to answer the question. The drinks were also amazing and the venue at the Cana was great. If anything was incorrect, blame BioWare for the free drinks but we @ 42 Gaming thank BioWare for the great time.
