HoloNet Links #182
Typically, I refer to time flying etc., but in light of all the crazy winter weather (those in the Northern Hemisphere); I am ready for it to be closer to Spring and warmer weather. However, before we wish too far ahead there are some upcoming events this weekend. March 1st, we will be having our live stream and we need your PVP questions. Speaking of PVP, Saturday, February 28th there will be a Jung Ma server PVP event.
For more details, let’s make the Jump…
A reminder, Operation Victory is set to begin next Tuesday. This is the new contest BioWare is partnering with ESL to start. The contest will focus on what eight person team can complete the story mode version of Operations released in Shadow of Revan expansion the fastest. There will be some serious rewards handed out to the various winners.
Does your eight person team have what it takes? Here is your chance to prove it. Read the Dev post by Eric Musco and be sure to stay tuned to Corellian Run Radio for the latest news on this contest!

- Dev notes
We are currently in the process of getting the PTS for 3.1.2 ready for you! The server will be available in the next hour or two but, in the meantime, combat notes and feedback threads have been posted.
BioWare has turned the power on for the Public Test Server. They are adding Update 3.1.2 to the testing server for the SWTOR Community to help test. Currently, it appears to be several changes to the Consular/Inquisitor classes. It appears the Lighting Sorcs and Telekinetic Sages are getting a few “nerfs.” Listening to the masses playing other classes stand and applaud. There are a few other changes in some classes and a few specific types of advance classes. For a full list of the Combat notes, as they are now on the PTS, click the Game Update 3.1.2 PTS Combat Notes link. Let us know your thoughts on the coming changes being tested on the PTS in the comment section below.
Be sure to look for the appropriate PTS forum thread when giving your feedback on specific class changes.

This is all about having fun and isn’t that what gaming is about? Enjoy the video, and then jump in-game to enjoy SWTOR with some of your friends.
