In the news we discuss Cartel Coin-gate, the new BioWare secret IP and elements of the Old Republic era being made canon. We then brief you on what’s coming next week in Game Update 4.3.

1. Introduction

Alex provided this screenshot of the Batman and Robin easter egg in a cantina on Zakuul:

Chill has upgraded Chillsmile’s Joker look:

Chill - updated look

2. Tip of the week

Congratulations to this week’s winner, Lecto Sama! Thanks to Chad, Galen, CMHN, Lukas, Larry and Dekion for entering.

Galen suggested TeamViewer to remotely access your PC via your mobile phone or tablet, though Jagged Fel suggested Splashtop is more responsive.

Please send your tips to ootinicast@gmail.com by next Tuesday for a chance to win a Taunfawn or M8-3R droid code, courtesy of BioWare, and an OotiniCast-provided Cartel Market pack from the latest shipment.

3. Holofeed

  • Since last August, the Cartel Coin monthly stipend was being sent to subscribers every 33 days, rather than every 30, meaning they were being delivered later and later each month. This will be remedied during maintenance on Tuesday 5 April for Game Update 4.3. While no one should have lost any Cartel Coins as a result of this issue, if you believe you have, please contact Customer Support.
  • The new secret IP being developed by BioWare was revealed on a t-shirt being worn by Alistair McNally while walking the floor at GDC 2016, though it seems no one noticed.
  • The Path of a Lightsaber video shows Anakin Skywalker’s lightsaber passing through several hands to finally be present at the closing scene in The Force Awakens.
  • Executive Producer of Star Wars Rebels, Dave Filoni, deliberately included Malachor, a planet from the Old Republic era. It’s possible he may later introduce Revan in a holocron.

4. Community

The Deck Officers in our Ootini Knights and Rage guilds have been busy! We now have @OotiniGuilds as the single point for all guild news and a guild website at Enjin.

5. The Academy

Swtorista will tell us all about gear, how to get it, how it works, and how to make it better!

6. Force Feedback

From JP Sinclair, he sent us this animated GIF which shows how Maz gets Anakin/Luke’s lightsaber in The Force Awakens. Also, this expresses very well how he feels in warzones.

The “Princess Leia meets Darth Vader” image that FarSear provided. He knows it’s meant to be Kylo Ren and Rey:

Princess Leia meets Darth Vader

Shamar of our own Ootini Knights sent this rather clever example of Star Wars humour:

7. Sarlacc Digest

We discuss all that’s coming in Game Update 4.3, arriving on Tuesday 5 March.
