Many people will have noticed that the updates around TOR have been some what hit and miss over that last few months. But really what else can BioWare reveal without giving away those all important story spoilers.
Well we ain’t seen the Timelines updated for an age, and there is a few loose ends with class progression and armor updates to be had. Yet these are fluff items that normally do not give us any real info on what the game has to offer.
Sure we can speculate as to what those videos hold but normally there is nothing ground breaking in the way of reveals that come from such videos.
Most everything asked about (that we don’t know already) is on that wall or crazy. The game is at a clinical turning point with almost all the content in and BioWare lashing on heaps of polish.
What else do we not know ?
Guild set-ups, the legacy system, in-game customizations are all in constant flux, so we will be very unlikely to get them pinned down until the game has a release day. Operations and flashpoints should never be seen again before release. I mean whats the point of knowing everything before you get to play, half the fun is working with your team to overcome those raid encounters.
And that seems to be what most people want now the release day, that and those golden tickets of the all important Beta invites.
Well those are the questions on everyone’s lips. When will the beta weekends start again and when will the release be.
Prolonged gaps from testing weekends only serves to bring fear to the masses. End of year is fast approaching with no clear end in sight the longer weekend testing gets put off the great the fear.
This is the first time in 3 years I have no idea what else TOR has to show. The endless Friday update that placed TOR’s naked carcass out for all to see. We’ve lapped up every drop on info that has come our way and yet we are still found wanting.
Maybe BioWare has a few hidden cards up there sleeves and we still may not have seen everything yet. Who knows they may still have 4 aces to wow us before the game has a release date pinned. It would be good marketing to bedazzle the masses and get the hype train running full speed again just before the game comes out.
Yet I think this is just wishful thinking on my part. I just can’t see what is around the corner with most of the focus trying to get the testing weekends right. That leaves very little time to give out inspiring Friday update every week (and rightly so) the most important thing here on in, is getting the game ready.
So are we missing anything ?
What updates are incomplete ?
Leave your thoughts…..
Until next time, MrWarlock signing off.
