Hutt Hutt! The Old Republic's Scum & Villainy 2.0


What I mean is, the 2.0 update for Star Wars: The Old Republic is live (and trailered with a video entitled "Scum & Villainy", in reference to something Spock once said in Star Trek). The update adds a hard mode to operations and flashpoints (weird dissonance there) which preps the ground for the Rise Of The Hutt Cartel expansion, which arrives in a couple of days (or right now if you pre-ordered). That's an actual expansion that you will have to pay $20 for, just like they did when my pappy was a boy.

2.0, meanwhile, also overhauls PvP, changing the way that characters are "bolstered" when they enter a PvP area. Wow, that really does seem like a band-aid sort of mechanic, doesn't it? Hmm. Anyone with extensive SWTOR PvP experience able to shine a light on that?

Also: I don't think I will ever be okay with Hutts slithering about. They should be forever reclining.

I which I was a galactic gangster.
