1st FREE Trial For TOR Is Upon Us

I did not think I would see any thing close to a free trial of SWTOR any time soon, well as soon as this anyway. My best guess would of been the back-end of the year but heck here it is.

Every subbed player can invite 3 friends to a one week test run of the game, so not exactly an open invite but this is as close as it gets without having the name tag.

Guild Summit Starts Today

Representatives of over 150 guilds from around the world will be coming to Austin, Texas to take part in BioWare’s inaugural Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ Guild Summit. During the summit, guild members will have the opportunity to speak with the development team, and see a preview of what the future holds for the game.
When the Guild Summit was announced, we received thousands of applications from passionate fans who were willing to travel from all parts of the globe to take part. While we were humbled by the overwhelming response, we couldn’t accept every application for space reasons. However, we don’t want any of you to miss out on the details either. That’s why we are excited to announce that portions of the Star Wars: The Old Republic Guild Summit will be streamed live!
On Monday, March 5th, we will be hosting a livestream of the Guild Summit, which you’ll be able to watch by visiting www.StarWarsTheOldRepublic.com/GuildSummit. Here’s our full schedule of events for the livestream:
  • 10:00AM CST (4PM GMT) – Welcome and Introductions

Throughout the day you will be able to not only watch each of these discussions, you’ll also be able to take part in them. We’ll be taking questions from the livestream throughout the event, although we will have to limit the number of questions answered for time. You can also discuss the Guild Summit on Twitter using the hashtag #SWTORSummit, and we’ve created a Guild Summit Forum for you to discuss each of the sessions with other viewers.
If you’re unable to watch these livestreams on the day, we’ll be providing recorded versions of each presentation and discussion after the event.
