HoloNet Links #21

Today started the biggest Beta Testing Weekend, so far for the game. All of you testing enjoy and remember it is beta and there might be a few hiccups.

Santa is watching in Beta...so be good for goodness sakes

HoloNet Links is coming to you the day after Thanksgiving. As it is one of the biggest shopping days, I have included some gift ideas for that Star Wars fan. In other news, last Friday the NDA was dropped on Star Wars: The Old Republic. Therefore, testers are free to share their experiences, screenshots, and even some have been streaming their gameplay. If you have not seen any of these videos, I will have some links to sites in the video section. Now before this writer slips into another food coma, from all the great Thanksgiving food yesterday, let’s get into the links and news.

More links for Dev notes, Christmas gift ideas, Facebook image & more after the Jump…

Entrance to the Fansite Summit was well-guarded.

Sunny Ravencourt and Radicool from Sunny’s Diner join us to discuss our Fansite Summit experience, plus we are slowly figuring out that Sunny might be a hardcore player in casual  clothing. We also learn that Georg is a playful, vengeful god and that just makes us like him more.

FACT OR FICTION: Can you pick out the confirmed fact from the tall tales? This week’s trick challenge ends unexpectedly, but still fulfills its main purpose of delivering fake facts.

Game Director James Ohlen answered a host of questions during a Q&A session at the Fansite Summit at BioWare Austin. Here’s a breakdown of what was discussed:

Guilds

  • Guild banks is the #1 asked-for feature concerning guilds. It will be the first thing they work on post-launch.
  • No guild events calendar feature in game at launch. High priority.
  • Guilds will be brought into testing to test endgame.
  • No in-game mechanics for guild adversaries and allies to interact.
  • There is talk of integrating the guild webpage features into the game, but can’t discuss.

Daniel has done way too many of these panels and does what he can to keep himself mentally engaged with the process.

Our first day at New York Comic Con! We arrive not at the crack of dawn, which means that even though we make a beeline for the Hallmark Booth, the Collectible R2 ornaments are already sold out. We are told that you have to come right when they open. Probably not happening since we have a two-hour commute in every day via NJ Transit.
