TOROcast – Ep 152 – Lotta’ ‘Sodes

With E3 having come and gone we had a ton to talk about for the show this week.  First, game update 1.3 hit the public test server for players to being testing what’s coming in 1.3.  We have heard a lot of good things about the game update.  Maybe BioWare has done something right.  We talk a bit about what was announced during the EA Download press conference.  And last but not least we do a very quick overview of this weeks community Q&A.  We hope you enjoy the show leave comments and let us know how we’re doing.  Also, the first episode for the Twonk Hammer podcast will be available later this afternoon, check http://www.twonkhammer.com for more information.

About SammMoney

Hey there friends I am Samm 'Money' Carbo, owner of Twonk Hammer Entertainment, LLC. In March of 2009, along with a dearly missed friend I started a podcast some may know; The TOROcast based on Star Wars: The Old Republic, unfortunately that game was not a fit for me however I did not want to give up podcasting and reviewing games. Thus I started this site, and The Ban Hammer podcast. I am the proud father of currently one, work as a computer tech during the day, and a mail man on Saturday's as you can imagine my life is busy. Follow me on Twitter @SammMoney and of course follow us here @TwonkHammer.

  1. Great show, as to be expected, and I’m glad to hear about all these other podcasts arriving soon. More entertainment to get me through my workdays are always welcome. Not that I mind listening to the same podcasts in my queue day after day. More chances to hear Tom and Samm… discuss me. I’m all about that.

    On that note, I’m also glad to hear I’m being considered in the very least.

    I’m curious, though, as I have my original characters on a PVP server, and now I play on an RP-PVP server, if I’ll be able to transfer my old characters to my new server free of charge, or if I’ll have to pay for them to be brought to my new server (Both sets have the same Legacy name). I don’t imagine they’ll have a targeted set of transfers in that direction, but I would like to have the option to consolidate my characters to one server.

    Also, FIRST. (Someone had to, may as well be me.)

    In closing, this has been Road. Hire me. I even got permission from my wife to be someone else’s bitch.

  2. Cool show.

    I’d like to share some informations:
    -Right now on the PTS, the cost for applying the augment slot onto your gear isn’t “expensive”. It goes from 1000 credits for MK-1 to 25000 credits for MK-6. They even lowered the MK-6 price from 50000 to 25000!
    (http://dulfy.net/2012/06/06/a-look-at-the-augment-kits-and-slots-in-1-3/)
    -I talked to many PTSers who PvP all the time and they’re satisfied with the Ranked Warzones. I asked them if they’re considering it Ranked Warzones. Everyone answered me yes. Just saying…
    -They tremendously optimized the engine in Update 1.3. Anyone who tried the game in PTS quickly noticed that the game runs smoother (more fps, significant reduced loading times!!!) and looks prettier (lightings, shadows, better anti-aliasing). Also, you have 2 additional graphic options: Very Low and Very High.
    -The populations shown on the Fleets are wrong and underestimate the real ones. For example, it could show 25 players on the Republic Fleet but in reality there are about 50 players. It’s been like that for at least 2 months.

    Long live TOROcast!

  3. I m still listening, just want to FTFY Tom, about Guild moving from Server A to Server B!

    /*****************************************************************************************/

    YOU MUST EMPTY YOUR GUILD BANK, TAKE ALL THE ITENS AND STORE IT IN YOUR CARGO HOLD!!! AT THE NEW SERVER RE-CREATE YOUR GUILD AND CONTACT CS!!!

    CS WILL ONLY GIVE THE TABS BACK TO YOU, IF YOU HAD 4 TABS THEY WILL PROVIDE THOSE TABS FOR FREE, BUT >>>>NOT<<<<< THE ITENS, TAKE IT FROM THE GUILD BANK BEFORE MOVING AWAY!!!

    /*****************************************************************************************/

  4. I agree with you on Ranked Warzones Samm.

    If they’re going to force people to make teams of 8 to play against other teams of 8 then the rankings should be on a team-by-team basis and not individual players.

    If you’re going to rank individual players then everyone should have to queue solo.

    Ideally they should have both, a team ladder and an individual ladder.

  5. Yeah… I believe that is one of the reason it is called PRE-Season, and there is no cross-server queue yet…

  6. Nintendo is better then EA and Activision put together. :/
