Erster April

Nicht nur Blizzard kennt "Aprilscherze" sondern auch Bioware versucht sich in dieser Kunst ...
Zumindest hoffe ich das es einer ist. Auch wenn ich lachen musste =)

Seht selbst *hier*

Zudem wurden wieder mal Mini-Patches aufgespielt auf unseren Testserver, die dafür sorgten, das in Alderan Kriegsgebiet die äußeren beiden "Flieger" entfernt wurden.

Dies ändert in Zukunft viel für die PvPler, denn dadurch wird der mittlere Punkt der wichtigste um flexibel zu bleiben.

Patch vom 31.3.2012

We appreciate your participation and are looking forward to seeing your bug reports and feedback in this thread (we will open it when the event begins)!

When providing your feedback, respond to the following if you can:

Ranked Warzones:
*Note: To ensure that you are able to answer these questions, you may need to play several matches in a row to ensure Ratings shifts.

  • Did you consistently get placed into Ranked Warzone matches?
  • Did you try to queue as an Operations Group of 5 – 8 players? If so, how long, on average, did it take to find a match?
  • Once you started getting Rating shifts, how much did your rating shift when you won and lost?
  • Is there anything about the Ranked system that you feel is unclear and needs to be better explained to the player?
  • Did you feel that the competition inside Ranked Warzones had better team balance than normal queues? Did your opinion on the balance between teams change as the test continued and players ratings were adjusted?

In Novare Coast:
  • Was your team ever able to "spawn camp" the opposition?
  • Did you find the objectives easy or difficult to capture overall?
  • What did you like and dislike about this Warzone?

Objective Scoring:
  • Are there any actions in Warzones you feel should be rewarded that aren't?
  • Do you think objective medals should be easier to obtain in any of the Warzones?

  • Do you feel like you're receiving Warzone rewards (xp, credits, commendations, and Valor) on PTS that are comparable to rewards on live servers?
