Star Wars: The Old Republic Gets A Reputation System

BioWare’s MMO, Star Wars: The Old Republic, is set to reward its players with a new Reputation System that’s set to go live in the game’s 1.7 update on Tuesday.

The Reputation System allows players to earn Reputation points by completing missions organizations such as the Gree or the Voss, or for military divisions within the Republic and the Empire for a wide variety of rewards. The system functions similarly to World of Warcraft‘s faction reputation system, which rewarded players with special items limited to those factions.

There are ranks of increasing prestige, including “Outside”, “Necover”, “Friend”, “Hero”, “Champion”, and “Legend”—all of which are tied to your character’s Legacy.

The upcoming patch is titled “Return of the Gree” and includes a new in-game event, Relics of the Gree, which sees players traveling to Ilum to investigate the appearance of ancient starships called “the Gray Secant”. Players can expect to earn exclusive Gree technology, including weapons and armor.

The event will last from February 12 to February 26 and is expected to make a return sometime later this year as a recurring event.

Why add in a world based pvp system in a game that can’t function with a lot of people together in the world at the same time?

That sounds not only like a stupid design move it sounds more like a means to advertise and blind side people to the fact this game runs like crap and all that do is stuff in more things when the numbers dip down to show investors the product is still above sea level when it was always clearly sub-par at best.

Aids@ Come on. Surely you’ve figured out by now that common sense isn’t one of the design factors of the game or all it’s upgrades. Never has been. It’s all about sounding great, not being great. See they keep adding stuff that no one wants instead of fixing the broken parts or actuall adding stuff promised to the people over a year ago. Bugs that existed 8 months ago and have been report multiple times, still exist today going completely unfixed and having support telling you that bugs take time to fix. What a load. It would help if they were actually working on the bugs instead of adding bogus upgrades to the game.
Said it before. R.I.P. Bioware.
