Fan Site Summit Kicks Off Today!

As you may or may not have heard, this weekend about 15 Star Wars™: The Old Republic™ fan sites from around the world converged on on Austin for 2 days of total immersion in all things TOR.

Last night was epic. It all got started with an early call-to-arms for some drinks at the Westin lobby bar. Once everyone was all nice and talky, we headed over to Maggiano’s restaurant where BioWare hosted an awesome dinner for everyone.

Stepehen Reid, David Bass and members of the community team and creative services team were there, as well as old fan site buds Brandon Miletta and Brooks Guthrie, who made the leap from dreaming about TOR to working on it!

And oh yeah, TOROcast episode 100 happened too! This is a must-listen – all of the fan sites gathered in a tiny undisclosed room at the Westin for a mega-super-cast in the tradition of MER’s PAX East cast! (And, apologies to Samm and Musco for me sitting down in my hotel room chair for a quick rest before heading over.. and then never making it. I am a disappoint.)

We had an awesome time meeting and hanging out with everyone yesterday, and look forward to the next two days at the BioWare Austin studio playing TOR until our fingers fall off (or, slightly just before that point.)

But don’t worry, we’re going to bring it all back right here as soon as we can… and from what we know so far, you won’t want to miss it!

    I’m sure I’m not alone when I say I’d prefer not to have to read 5 versions of the Sith Warrior’s experience on different sites so I hope you come to an arrangement with the other fansites to cover all ACs.

  2. Have fun guys! Wish I was there :(


  3. You guys say you’re gonna bring it all back as soon as you can?

    any idea when that might be? have you been told about an info embargo or something?

    • Lethality says:

      There is an embargo on a few things, we’ll know more today. But trust me, I know we (and all of the sites) will be pushing and asking to release as much as we can as soon as we can! Definitely keep an eye out on our Twitter feed (and everyone else’s) for, hopefully, some spontaneous surprises!

  4. We’ll be waiting yours updates from Spain!

    I wish i was there!
