SWTOR - Star Wars: The Old Republic - MMORPG

edited October 19 in Other Games

Big changes are coming to SWTOR, highly recommend anyone who spent time in this game to read up on it.

A major update called United Forces will merge servers into 5 megaservers


As always SWTOR doesn't support duplicate names, so characters may be subject to the renaming policy.

  • Subscribers get full priority to keep their names.
  • Further dispute will be settled by character playtime.

The following conditions will have no priority to keep their names. Will be autoflagged for rename

  • Characters under level 10 will lose their names
  • Characters who haven't logged in the past 90 days will lose their names
    By "lose their name" the game will ask you to name your character again upon logging in. If your old name is not taken after the merger, you could successfully rename your character to the old name it used to have.

If you want to keep your existing character name, subscribe and log in to your character before the update.
Otherwise, you'll be give a "free name change" :P

The merger supports overflow

  • legacy cargo bays will be merged. Extra items that didn't stack will go into a new overflow tab.
  • legacy currencies will overflow past the limit.
  • Characters will overflow past the 52 character limit.
  • Strongholds will overflow. (including duplicate strongholds) Decorations won't be affected.

For more details, please read the official posts:

    If anyone is interested, myself and Cpl. Ochs are looking for at least 2 other people who would want to run characters through the story and group content, starting from level 1.

    @"PFC Alan" It doesn't really matter if you download via origin or from the Star Wars The Old Republic Website.

    Are you two subscribing? It's relevant because it would change the pace of leveling if one person doesn't have the same subscriber status as the other.

    There was a double exp event active for May The Forth Be With You, you could reach max level and start grinding Command XP (cxp) just with single player.
    Double Exp will last until May 14th, see

    May the 4th – In honor of May the 4th, log in between May 2nd and May 8th to earn your very own M4-Y6 Astromech mini-pet. The Double XP event will also run from May 4th to May 14th!  

    It also gives you double cxp.
