Photo-Receptor Focus on: Mega Servers

By Maer

The latest server mergers are done and it seems to have gone smoothly for the most part. We didn’t have to spend long hours recreating guilds and such, which made things much, much easier. The biggest issues surrounded character and guild names. And boy, have I heard grief about that from quite a few people. To be fair, Bioware tried to do the best they could with a situation that wasn’t likely to please everyone. They made some excellent choices, but also some that are less palatable.

Photo-Receptor Focus on: The “Other” Side

By Maer

By now most of us have had a chance to play the opposite faction from our mains. For some the loyalty to their main side is extremely important. I can’t say I feel as strongly as some, but I must admit, I do prefer my Empire characters.

And I have some questions about these changes.

Photo-Receptor Focus on: The Answer is 42.

By  Maer

Today is my 42nd article for this column. I mention this only because everyone knows that “42” is a most significant number. I mean it’s the answer to the meaning of life, right? At least, those who ask a question in voice or chat will often get this answer.

For instance, when we ask Bioware when we will get new content, they might as well answer “42”. Because the answer we get instead is that vague and basically meaningless word “soon”.
