Star Wars the Old Republic has released game update 5.7. There some fun stuff in the new boss encounter! The Bridge Boss is real!

There's also been another article published about the demise of Swtor at the hands of the evil corporate overlords known as Electronic Arts. The article is mostly speculation, so let's dig into it!

If you ever look around the Internet for information about Star Wars the Old Republic, two things will become apparent. 

A) People are passionate about the game

B) No one has a clear idea of what the state of the game actually is

Many folks have been saying that SWtor is in 'Maintenance Mode'. Why do they say this? What is maintenance mode? What should we do to prevent it?

Is now a good time to start playing? Is it okay to come back to the game? What should new and returning players expect? 

Let's discuss!

Holy crap! Its already been a full year of bad feeling podcasts! Brian was able to bribe Bioware employees with cookies to get them to tell us a little bit about what they worked on this year. 

In game news, the Copero flashpoint has undergone some changes to make it quicker and more accessible. 

How much flashpoint is too much? How much story is too little? 

This is the last one for the year, so we'll see you in 2018!

Let's start off 2018 with a bang.... or a dud... or something! This week, we take a listen back to last year's resolutions. How did we do? About as well as you'd expect.

Then, we set our sights to predictions for the coming year. What will we seen in Star Wars The Old Republic? Definitely some new companions, but they won't be available to all characters. Is this a bad thing?

Its been another exciting week in the Galaxy of Star Wars The Old Republic!
Game update 5.6 brought lots of fun things including a new operations boss, a new flashpoint, CXP updates, the activity finder and more!
Also included in this update: Another credit generating exploit.  
This is bad news for those of us that like the use the GTN to buy and sell goods.
Are the exploiters going too far or is this part of a greater conspiracy?
