After a summer of silence, and months of anticipation #Bioware has given us some information on #kotet. New York Comic Con Cantina event gave us an inside look of the upcoming conclusion to #kotfe. Ideas of Bioware listening to it’s playerbase may have fallen on deaf ears, some have stated. Blur gave us a teaser trailer and a full trailer. In short, it’s a backstory on Vaylin, so obviously you have an idea of the direction of the story. Vaylin is Emperess now and it’s pretty much an ultimate battle of Good vs. Bad aka Light vs. Dark.
Bioware for awhile has wanted to go back to its roots of story story story-telling, #KnightsOfTheFallenEmpire was pretty much Bioware’s way of testing the waters and dipping their toes in a different direction of what MMO evolution they have in mind. Though KotFE came with mixed reviews, the foundation of the game was the same, now with the next step of a complete revamp of the whole system of the game.
It’s the 2016, and many podcasts, bloggers, sites are making predictions about the upcoming year involving #StarWarsTheOldRepublic #KnightOfTheFallenEmpire. Bioware is back from their vacation and working on releasing the new chapter in February. But the #swtor community has alot of questions concerning the direction of the game.
As most of you know, there was a live stream on August 26th at 5pm PST. It gave us a preview of the upcoming #swtor expansion #KnightsoftheFallenEmpire. Now let me just be clear as to I will not post any spoilers, I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone. For those of you that actually want to watch it. There is the following video.
Greetings all, I know that it has been a while since I posted. So forgive me for the delay, I’ve had quite of personal things going on. I went to the San Diego Community Cantina Event. As some of you were aware of the pic’s with some familiar #swtor community members. And had the most interesting time, meeting up with Marshall and Will from ‘The Usual Podcast‘, Jessie from Unholy Alliances, Heather of Pretty Little Sith & Corellian Run Radio, and Andreas aka Chinn’ook from my same server of Jedi Covenant, and not to mention Bam and the #WookGuild.
Looks like either someone stepped in some poodoo there. And leaked some info in regards to the announcement/expansion. Now whether it was a mistake or just to ride the coat tails of hype. Hashtags of #knightsofthefallenempire , #swtor , #faceyourdestiny and #swtorfamily still has been booming with hype.
The news has been spreading like wildfire, and it has been exciting players and attracting some returning players. I will say that #Bioware is moving in the right direction. With all this hype the pressure is on Bioware to really deliver a high quality product and streamline PvP aspects along with queues.

This picture has been circulating around the web and Twitter, looks greats. And as I said in my last post, speculations have been flying around. This has shed some light. There’s also a picture that has Eric Musco’s face photoshop on the twins.
Let me first start off by saying thank you to the guys from ‘The Usual Podcast’, these guy are phenomenal. Their energy, beer, subjects, beer, comedy, pop culture, beer, movies, beer, are amazing! Did I mention beer? Also Marshall (@darthpops) and Will (@iamwillgriggs) have been asked to do ‘Galactic Gamers Coalition’ podcast. Now that’s awesome, if you haven’t listen to them before. DO IT! Now as a community if you are up for a challenge go to iTunes and give these great guys a rating. They deserve it. DO IT!
I thought that I would mention that right now going on in SWTOR that unlocking outfits in collections are HALF OFF!!!! For a limited time ONLY!
It was brought up to my attention on Twitter that why hadn’t Bioware announced it? And excellent question, perhaps maybe some sort of backlash from the harassment of one of the Devs? Speculation may arise from the community in regards to further communications from Bioware to the community. It’s sad in a way that a few bad apples ruins the bunch. The behavior of a few does not reflect the whole community. But what can we as the community do to gain the trust back from Bioware to make these small announcements?
Could this be the beginning of what we as the community struggled to get from Bioware? I know personally I don’t want Bioware to turn their backs to the community. It really seemed that we as in Bioware and the community were moving in the right direction and now we’re being put in the corner to think about we’ve done. People need to be respectful, being behind a computer doesn’t give one the right to just say anything that you want regardless of how it will affect the person. A silent treatment is toxic to a relationship.
Your rights end where others rights begins. Food for thought.
Stay tuned to The Balance Force.
Recently a Swtor Dev was harassed for a post on the forums, but to go to the degree of harassing ones family. Unacceptable, many players of Swtor will agree that this should never happen in any way, shape or form. It brings to light that these particular people don’t understand the particulars of communicating on a mature level. It’s shameful. And it affects the entire way we wanted Bioware to be more transparent on communicating with us, the player base.
For us players this is a game, a form of entertainment, a way to relax and have fun with friends. It’s NOT fun to affect a person who is doing their job and/or their family simply because one doesn’t like ‘X, Y, and Z’.
For example: Many of the healers were not happy with the proposed changes for 3.2.1. The Dev team asked for the opinions and feedback in regards to these changes. A majority of players presented a thoughtful and constructive point of views about these changes. And the changes for healers were reevaluated and pulled from 3.2.1.
Now, ofcourse this type of behavior upsets me simply because I feel that NO ONE should ever experience this type of situation.
No one has the right to harass a person and/or their family. All the best to John and his family.
Recently I’ve got to go through the second part of the Ziost story, on my Sage. And so far I like what Bioware did storywise. But I can’t help to feel like it lacked in content. Now, keep in mind that you have to finish your storyline on Yavin in order to get the mission-story arch for Ziost. Once you get to Ziost, you meet up with Lana/Theron (depending on which side you’re playing on), pick up a few missions and evacuate some citizens and fight mind controlled minions of the Emperor and are introduced to “The Sixth Line Jedi Order” (in some cases people are calling ‘The Grey Jedi Order’).
