Star Wars: The Old Republic to Host More Surprise Events
SWTOR’s Rakghoul Plague event was a hit amongst players, and BioWare seeks to repeat that success with more surprise events in the future.
Game director James Ohlen tweeted:
The Rakghoul plague was a very popular event. You’re going to see more surprises like it in the future.

Patch 1.2.1 saw the end of the Rakghoul outbreak, and Ohlen is now looking for feedback on what players liked most about the event, so be sure to tweet back to him.
With the recent news that server mergers are a possibility due to a drop in the number of concurrent online players, as well as evidence suggesting the game may be bleeding subscribers, another surprise event can’t come soon enough.
