Star Wars: The Old Republic Update Today

The official website for Star Wars: The Old Republic has a couple of posts detailing plans for the upcoming version 1.7 update for the free-to-play Star Wars MMORPG. There's a developer blog with details on Relics of the Gree, a limited-time recurring in-game event, accompanied by another post with a sneak peek video of what this involves. The site and game are currently undergoing scheduled maintenance to install the new update, and the details LucasArts provides indicate players should be able to access this new event beginning today:

  • Relics of the Gree – Discover the mysteries behind the Grey Secant, an ancient Gree starship that has suddenly appeared over Ilum’s Western Ice Shelf. From February 12 to February 26, players can visit the in-game News Terminals located on Carrick Station or Vaiken Spacedock to begin their adventure. The Gree have promised advanced technology, including powerful weapons and armor, to anyone who is brave enough to aid them against an insidious foe who has taken control at the heart of their ship.
  • Galactic Reputation – This new system enables players to earn Reputation points by completing missions for factions such as the Gree, or for military divisions within the Republic and the Empire. The Galactic Reputation system advances characters through six ranks of increasing prestige: “Outsider”, "Newcomer", "Friend", "Hero", "Champion", and "Legend". Galactic Reputation is also tied to a character’s Legacy, so Reputation points and ranks are shared across all the characters within the same Legacy.

It's honestly embarrassing to see the Star Wars IP thrashing around like this (kinda like watching Ep 1, 2 and 3).

The promo email for this crap rolled in this morning, and it's just a big ad sheet for cartel coins. On yeah, now you can get a big Ep1 pod racer speeder for about 15 bucks or w/e... /eyeroll

edit: And even more hilarious, the splash screen for my top level bounty hunter claims I'm one of the most famous and notorious BH's in the galaxy (the same thing all top levels get) but suddenly I'm an outsider with a big rep grind ahead of me. It took me 10 mins of perusing the "f2p" offering before signing out forever.
