The Fist interupts your regularly scheduled Herald Holiday Special to bring you some gaming updates. Included is a change to the TOR Level Restriction rules, an update on how much the DJB loves Battlefront, and some changes made to align the Cluster Wiki Pages with the Gaming Platform Overview page mentioned in my last report.
Just over one month ago Battlefront released and the DJB has been tearing it up, but exaclty how much have we been playing it? Well, earlier today I ran some numbers can can give you a breakdown of submissions since November 17th.
If you break down those numbers into percentages, you'll see 50% of the gaming activity being submitted for Clusters through our website is Battlefront. That's pretty fantastic, and its exciting to see that a Star Wars Game has taken such a commanding lead as our Club's game of choice once again.
When TOR's newest expansion, Knights of the Fallen Empire, launched it brought with it a change to the way that levels work on older content. Similar to how Warzones Bolster lower level members to try to even the playing field, content will now scale characters power down when they return to old planets. With this mechanic in play there is no longer a reason for us to maintain the Level Restrictions that were in place for Flashpoints, Operations, Heroic Missions, and anything else I may have forgotten.
Effective today there are no longer level restrictions for TOR Gaming Submissions. Get after it!
Last report I briefly covered the Gaming Platform Overview page, a link to this can also be found after clicking the Submit Gaming Scores option on your Admin Menu, this feature makes obsolete the practice of maintaining an updated Cluster of Fire / Earth Table on the Wiki. All values shown on the screen update real time based on any changes that are made to the Gaming Activities and their Modifiers by the Fist or Praetor.
Today I removed the Templates that showed Cluster Tables from the main Cluster of Fire Wiki page and added notes to them indicating they were no longer in use or being updated. Any information which was previously contained in these templates related to submissions was rolled into the Tier 1 or Tier 2 Gaming Platform Wiki pages.
