Short report to announce the individual who I've chosen as M:Fist and to cover some Competition results which have been hanging out there for a bit. A more typical report will be coming next week, before I depart for a week on a vacation time with my family. Read on and see who gets the shiny awards!

M:Fist

First, I'd like to congratulate Egregious on being chosen for the M:Fist position. Egregious brings with him a wealth of gaming activity, ranging from older games like JA to newer platforms like Star Conflict and TOR. As the Fist Staff prepares for the launch of Battlefront in November I'm sure he'll be a great contributor.

Ye Olde Competition Results

A listing of long awaited results, I appreciate everyone's patience with my trips to SW Celebration and then family stuff last month which delayed these.

May the Fourth

Happy Star Wars Day everyone! I'm a bit late on reporting these, thanks to an insanely busy day at work, but I'm going to try to catch up with the multitude of sales available to help feed your nerddom today.

There's a few sites keeping track of the various Star Wars deals available at the moment, including a list up at StarWars.com, and another list of digital deals.

There are some special sales I want to bring attention to though.


There has also been a great deal of news released today regarding Episode VII and other topics near and dear to our hearts, like Star Wars Battlefront and the next anthology film.

  • Members of the Episode VII cast posed for photos with Vanity Fair magazine. In it we get confirmation of Gwendoline Christie playing Captain Phasma (aka the Chrome Trooper from the second trailer), and our first glimpse of Adam Driver as Kylo Ren.
  • The second anthology film is still being reported to be a movie concerning a notorious Mandalorian Bounty Hunter. This movie has seen some rough patches already considering it just lost its director.
  • Finally, EA has revealed that Battlefront will ship with 12 multiplayer maps at launch, at least one of which will be the planet Sullust.

Obviously, all this only scratches the surface of this, our happiest day, but I hope it's not too late for people to take advantage of some of the great deals and news.

Cheers!

Rebels Season 1

It was just announced that until May 4th, the entire first season of the tv show Star Wars Rebels will be free-to-stream from the official Star Wars site.

As was previously announced, Season 2 of Rebels will premiere June 20th at 9pm ET/PT on Disney XD. This is a great time to catch-up on the first season for free! The episodes are generally just 24 minutes long, with 13 of them (as well as the "movie" that kicked off the series). I highly recommend the series to all fans, and after watching this, you can go back and watch all of Clone Wars as well!

Enjoy the weekend, folks!

Today events began in both Star Wars Galactic Defense and Star Wars Commander, details for competitions for both of these are included. Also SWTOR has a free pet available if you log in before May 4th and some cool exp perks coming soon.

Star Wars Commander

In Star Wars Commander another Galactic War: Tournament began and will be running for the next 4 days. This is another great opportunity to earn Event Points to pick up upgrades for those special units. The associated competition and its details are already live.

Star Wars Galactic Defense

Imgur

Star Wars Galactic Defense began the A Rebellion is Born event. The reward champion for this event is the Inquisitor from Star Wars Rebels! He has an awesome special where he throws his lightsaber around him dealing damage. I'm pretty excited about this guy. This is another Arena style event. The Elite Champions for this event are Grand Moff Tarkin (Dark Side Carbonite Pod) and Ezra Bridge (Light Side Carbonite Pod), just like previous events they will have a 5x boost to damage and health. Competition is live.

Star Wars The Old Republic

Imgur

There is a special pet available for all Star Wars The Old Republic players who log in before May 4th. The M4-1S Astromech Droid. As long as you've logged into the game between April 4th and May 4th you'll receive this little guy to add to your collection, make sure to give him an oil bath. Also, TOR has announced a new Epic Story Experience Boost which appears to be modeled after the 12X Class Mission exp boost that went on back in November. Details are hazy right now, but it seems this option will be able to be toggled on and will become available after May 4th through this fall. Feel free to check out the full story (with marginally more information than this) on the TOR website.

Fist Mini-LOA

I'm flying out of town tomorrow at a ludicrously early time in the morning to go to a family member's wedding. I'll be away through Sunday, and once I get back will be deep diving into Destiny Iron Banner to try to make up for lost time and get to an appropriate Rank to earn some sweet gear before it ends Monday night. So between now and Tuesday evening I will be scarce, but still available on Telegram and by email. Hit up Ernordeth for any pressing issues that need resolution before I return.

One of the best new entries into the Star Wars fandom since Disney took over has been the introduction of Star Wars Rebels. The panel was amongst one of the most popular panels at Celebration recently, and we got to see an amazing trailer.

Star Wars Rebels Season 2

IGN is reporting that A special one hour episode entitled "The Seige of Lothal" will air on June 20th at 9PM, kicking off the new season for a summer run.

This season we're going to see the return of Clone Wars alumni Ahsoka Tano, as well as seeing James Earl Jones revise his role as the voice of Darth Vader. We'll also see other familiar faces from the Clone Wars like the Clone Captain Rex and fan favourite Hondo Ohnaka.

What are you most looking forward to seeing this summer?

Recently a competition went live for Star Conflict to Race to Rank 9 in game. This is to support the DJB Corporation gaining enough Rank 9 members to begin construction on a Dreadnought. At the time of creation of the competition we had 6 of the required 10 Rank 9 pilots in game.

In this competition, the first three pilots to submit a screenshot showing their character has earned a rank 9 ship will win. You do not need to fly with other DJB members to earn your rank 9 ship. You can do this solo. Only new characters will be accepted for this competition. You cannot screenshot a character that is already rank 9 before the competition started.

You must also be a member of the DJB Corps in game to be eligible for this competition, since Rank 9 pilots not in the DJB Corporation don't really help us to qualify to build a Dreadnought ;)

This competition is being run by Landon Cruise. If you'd like to be added to the DJB Corporation just message Landon, Drake Starfire, or Chrome.

Earlier today IGN posted a Summary page which they'll be keeping update with all of the ongoing May the Fourth sales that we know will be coming over the next week. Its a pretty comprehensive listing covering the PC and console platforms:

  • Steam
  • Good Old Games
  • PS4/PS3/PSP/Vita
  • Xbox One / Xbox 360

The list is already rather impressive, and so are the discount prices. I'd definitely suggest checking back to IGN's summary page between now and next Monday if there is any Star Wars Game out there you'd like to pick up at a bargain price!

Lords of the Sith

The newest Star Wars novel is being released tomorrow, April 28th. The newest novel, Lords of the Sith focuses on Darth Vader and Emperor Palpatine. The plot appears to focus on both Sith Lords on a mission together, which is not something we have actually seen before. It will probably be the first time we actually see these two characters, in their "final" incarnations, working together on a mission.

The novel is written by Paul S. Kemp, who has written a few Star Wars novels, including Deceived, Crosscurrent and Riptide. I've actually enjoyed most of his work in the SW universe, so I'm optimistic about this novel.

There is a 50-page excerpt up on the Random House page (click on "Look Inside"). It should give you a strong idea about the direction of the book. Hopefully we can have a good review up for everyone in a couple of weeks!

Next, Star Wars Galactic Defenses newest event started this afternoon. Pirate Trouble is an Arena based event with the Event Reward of General Kenobi (obviously light side). Light Side Special Champion is Ahsoka and Dark Side Special Champion is Hondo. Its worth noting that Ahsoka is a Durasteeel Pod champion who only costs 10k for a chance to recruit and she's 5 times more powerful during this event. Hondo, on the other hand, is a Carbonite Pod champion and costs a few gems. Clearly we're in a Light Side favoring round. Expect a competition similar to previous ones launching soon.

Finally, Star Wars Commander has opened up the ability to construct Level 9 Headquarters (and everything else that comes with it). Once your Base is Level 9 you'll be able to build additional Shield Generators, Vaults, Turrets and a Sonic Cannon. No Event showing up for Commander right now, but I'll be watching to see if one appears.
