This Week in SWTOR

  • The Battle for Balmora

Discussion of the Week

  • Lack of news format

Hot Topics

  • Last Weeks Topic: Coruscant and planet sizes
  • Should TOR have player controlled Jedi/Sith High Council? (78% no)
  • Will the “fourth pillar” of story really carry a game?
  • James Olen, Studio Creative Director: Yeah, our game is about loot. There are things in our game that as you progress you definitely can tell a new player from a high-level player. I pray that just came out wrong and he was talking about how cool items look later on this the game. I do not want to play a game where my weapon is cooler than I am. (posted by fodigg)


  • 4 classes + 4 planets + 5 factions + 15 timelines + 3×9 question marks = 55 That is 55 weeks ’til the game is released assuming the announce one a week, don’t skip a week. Plus they have a developer blog and making of video every now and then. Long story short: I think we are looking at a release around Christmas next year. (kmarst)
  • Do you guys think there will be any TOR related Merchandise in the near future? If so would you guys be willing to buy them? (BlackLotus)
  • With the recent release of Coruscant do you believe there is still weight to the quote that lends to Taris being a planet in TOR? (DarkenedLight)
  • Basically, for every ‘zone’ in the world there are different channels … kind of like instances. If the first channel fills up, you are automatically and seamlessly moved to the second – so you can’t see anyone in the first channel. Like Aion/Champions (PurpleCliff

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.
