SWTOR Patch 1.6 Announced, F2P Still Poorly Executed
Despite negative reviews for its free-to-play conversion last week, the SWTOR devs continue to roll out updates, as promised. Update 1.6 hit the public test server today with a new PvP Warzone, the Ancient Hypergate, and the introduction of Heroic mode for its on-rails space fighter minigame.
“We have added a secondary scoring element and some other little tweaks that we feel have greatly increased the dynamic gameplay and made the Warzone feel less strategically static.”
The Space Mission upgrade is broken on arrival on the PTR so no indication yet about the fun factor. It is designed to give increased Black Hole commendations which can be spent on ship upgrades and better gear.
No word when the patch will get pushed to the live servers or if anyone came back to the game long enough to care.
