Bioware really knows how to capture our attention. This is gorgeous. In preparation for the Knights of the Fallen Empire expansion being released in October, here is another beautiful cinematic:

Wow. I've said it before, but they should really be full length movies.

I'm confused though. Is TOR still canon? Confused

Unfortunately, I have no idea. But I'm assuming so, since it has been allowed to continue. All other games were canned. Granted...TOR is the only one running live.

I remember watching all of the Jedi Archive videos when TOR first came out and I remember there being a lot of EU content on them. I'm not sure how much of that made it into the game and I'm sure it would have little to no effect on the ST. At the same time it isn't on any of the canon lists I've seen, so I was assuming it wasn't canon.

I'm a little miffed at the idea that money is still being made on "fanfiction", but a larger part of me is happy that the EU story is still being told albeit in a small way.

I agree. They probably also had to let it be cannon since it might've jeopardized their deal with EA to declare it not cannon and dead (after investing so much money in making TOR EA wasn't likely to be okay with killing the game so soon). Also from a pure marketing standpoint they'd have a lot of trouble breaking back into the MMO market if they killed TOR after just 2-3 years (who'd really trust that a new SW MMO would stick around if the preceding one was killed for the petty reason of having a clean slate with canon).

TOR is probably not canon, but Legends,
reason: Korriban vs. Morriband

What in the world is Morriband? Did they rename the Sith homeworld to Morriband?! *whimpers* What is this world coming to? Sad

Yep. Last of the lost episodes of The Clone Wars.

Also Darth Bane looks like this now:


So I guess TOR isn't canon, but the Powers That Be have to continue it for the reasons Salaris brought up. The EU was killed for business reasons, but a small vestige of it is kept alive also for business reasons. As a curmudgeonly EU fan, this amuses me. Razz

That's Bane?! Oh, the sadness. My heart. It hurts.

Not to be dramatic. I know it's fiction, and life goes on. But still...it does hurt a little. Sad

I thought the new Darth Bane looked like a Bionicle when I first saw him. Kind of like this guy:



Darth Bane was voiced by Mark Hamill though, so that was the good news.

...But, back on topic, I'm considering re-installing TOR on my computer. I think I had an issue last time. Either my computer was running slower or the game was running slow.

I am not going to ever be able to see or hear that and not think "Moribund" instead.

Darth Bane also looks like he should be named "Darth Sauron-Impersonator." Or "Darth Skull-face"

Another Community Events link, just like the one Salaris shared earlier. This one is from the San Diego Comic-Con:

Say hello to my newest character, Thana. She is an Operative DPS, and I chose to go with the Concealment discipline. Or as I like to say, "Sneaky, sneaky, slice, slice." She has been a lot of fun so far. Now I know why I hate them in PvP! Very Happy
