HoloNet Links #217
While writing this week’s article, I’m trying to get things organized for the Extra Life event this Saturday, November 7th. Getting my computer all cleaned up and ready to go; plus of course there must be snacks, so I’m getting those lined up…healthy snacks, well mostly healthy lol. I will be taking part in my first Extra Life event and will be playing SWTOR. The event is all about helping raise money to benefit kids. One thing our guild has planned for the event is the “Level as Musco” contest. I’m excited about the event. What a great way to help kids?
*Be aware that there are issues with the instant level 60 tokens. Read below for details*

- Dev notes
Like I mentioned earlier in the thread, we are looking into this. Right now, it’s scheduled for 4.0.2, but may be later.
It looks like phasing in and out of Ops with have to continue for those wanting to switch specs. Hopefully this will be able to be in the next scheduled patch 4.0.2. In the meantime, I have found committing one utility at a time helps speed it up without any issue of the utilities not being accepted. Has the utility bug been an issue doing Ops in 4.0? Let us know your experiences and any workarounds you have found to help.
After posting the workaround information yesterday, we continued to investigate the issues that some of you are experiencing with your Start at 60 tokens not being restored. It does appear that in some cases, a player can end up in a state where their start at 60 character does not create properly, and then their token is also not being restored to them. We are going to be removing the Start at 60 token off of the Cartel Market immediately. Also, in the meantime, we recommend that you do not use any Start at 60 tokens as it is possible that you could end up in this state as well. Note that start at 60 tokens include those bought from the Cartel Market, the GTN, and the free level 60 granted to subscribers in KotFE.
It is our goal to get this fixed ASAP, and the moment I have more information on when we will be fixing it I will pass it on. If you already experienced this issue, hold tight, I will be getting more information on how to get your individual states resolved as well (contacting CS, waiting for maintenance, etc.)
Thank you for your understanding, I will pass on information as I have it.
This is an important dev post especially if you are thinking about using your instant level 60 token or buying one. For the time being it appears that it would be better to hold off using these tokens until this issue has been fixed. If you are one of those players who tried using their instant level 60 and it did not work correctly, be sure to stay tuned more information will be released soon. The added information should contain what steps a player needs to do as far as reporting the issue etc. We here at Corellian Run Radio will report when more details are released.

- SWTOR music video
This week I wanted to share a fun SWTOR music video to help set the mood for the upcoming weekend. The song Light em’ Up by Fall Out Boy is perfect blend of energetic beat and catchy lyrics. Take that song and several well edited scenes from all of the Blur produced trailers for SWTOR, including the latest one, Sacrifice. Take a moment and watch the video created by YouTube user Choosty The OP Pig and get ready to get pumped up!
Please let us know if you have a particular link, story, video, or blog related to SWTOR we would love to hear about it! You can send those to us here at Corellian Run Radio and we can place it in a future article. Just email us the links and/or the details for the event at firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can also leave any link suggestions in the comments below, or in Corellian Run Radio’s Facebook group.
