STAR WARS: THE OLD REPUBLIC – Patch 1.1 auf den Testservern

Bio­Wa­re hat mit dem öffent­li­chen Pro­be­lauf des nächs­ten grö­ße­ren Patches (1.1) für STAR WARS: THE OLD REPUBLIC begon­nen, der wur­de näm­lich auf die Test­ser­ver aus­ge­spielt. Wie bei MMOs üblich dür­fen dort die Kun­den Bio­Wa­res Arbeit machen: die neue Ver­si­on aus­pro­bie­ren und dann gefun­de­ne Feh­ler mel­den. Neben den übli­chen Feh­ler­be­sei­ti­gun­gen han­delt es sich auch um das ers­te grö­ße­re Con­ten­t­up­date, es wird ein neu­er Flash­point hin­zu­ge­fügt. Des­sen Name lau­tet »Kaon Under Sie­ge« und ist für Spie­ler der Stu­fe 50 vor­ge­se­hen. Erreich­bar ist der Flash­point via Ziost Shadow und Gav Dara­gon, er kann im nor­ma­len oder im heroi­schen Modus gespielt wer­den.

»Karag­gas Palast« war bis­lang eine klei­ne­re Ope­ra­ti­on mit nur einem Boss­geg­ner, die wird deut­lich auf­ge­pumpt: der Patch fügt der Instanz vier wei­te­re Bos­se hin­zu. Außer­dem wur­de ein Feh­ler besei­tigt, der Spie­ler dar­an hin­der­te, den Palast zu ver­las­sen.

PvP war in SWTOR bis­her eine abso­lu­te Lach­num­mer, da Spie­ler aller Stu­fen gemein­sam in die War­zo­nes gewor­fen wur­den. Dass ein Level-15-Cha­rak­ter gegen einen auf Stu­fe 50 nicht lan­ge durch­hal­ten kann, soll­te auch jemand nach­voll­zie­hen kön­nen, der nicht viel Ahnung über MMOs hat. Hier wer­den nun ers­te Kor­rek­tu­ren vor­ge­nom­men. Mit dem Patch 1.1 wird das Pro­blem aller­dings nur mini­mal ver­bes­sert, denn aus­schließ­lich Spie­ler auf Stu­fe 50 wer­den in eige­nen PvP-Instan­zen spie­len. Alle ande­ren müs­sen nach wie vor zusam­men agie­ren – und auch das macht über­haupt kei­nen Sinn – ein­zig das Auf­tei­len in zehn-Level-Abschnit­te könn­te das PvP viel­leicht inter­es­sant gestal­ten.

Die gesam­ten (umfang­rei­chen) Patch­no­tes fin­det man hin­ter dem »wei­ter lesen«-Link.
