Onslaught is coming and man am I hyped! I think the last SWTOR expansion that came out that I couldn’t wait to get my hands on was Shadow of Revan. Onslaught has changed that though. In a little over a month, the new expansion for SWTOR will be coming out and that means that the various cycles of ptr are now being rolled out. This week they are releasing the Imperial Agent patch of the ptr. Since returning to the game I’ve been focused mostly on the Agent class playing mostly my operative and sniper, so hearing that the Agent ptr run is coming this week makes me incredibly excited.
I like that they are doing the ptr like this, it helps give more consistent feedback when people only have to focus on one new feature at a time. For instance last week they did just the force users new items and set bonuses, now they are doing the Agent ones, and I assume the next patch will probably include all the bounty hunter changes. After that though comes the really exciting patch. Since there will be all of the class changes out, that means the other stuff can be tested like the new RAID. I’m so hyped that the game will be getting another new raid, having something to look forward to has really kept me interested in playing the game again over the long term.
This is an incredibly short article but I just wanted to make a short note to commend BioWare on their handling of the ptr this time for this expansion. How much they listen to feedback is yet to be seen but if they do actually bother to take it in then it will be the best handled ptr they’ve ever done. I’m hopeful for the games future. Please BioWare, don’t mess this up because this is the moft hyped I’ve been for something you’ve made in YEARS.
