BioWare announced today the beginning of a new series of videos to help guide new players in their journey in Star Wars: The Old Republic. Social Media Coordinator Eric Musco shows how new players can select their server, faction, and character from the moment players first boot the game up to the second they are in the game world. BioWare also announced a two new weekly community blogs: a Q&A and a summary of DevTracker posts from the official forums. The Q&A will be 10 questions chosen from a thread on the forums that closes on Tuesday at 2PM CST. You can read the full announcement and watch the first Quick Start Guide video after the jump.
Quote from Star Wars: The Old Republic
We’re very happy to announce that we are adding two new weekly blogs to hopefully give you more insight into development and keep you up to date on developer comments you may have missed.
First, we’ll be starting up a weekly Q&A blog series in which we will select ten questions from the community and post answers to them every Friday. We’ll have our first set of answers next week on February 10th, 2012, but before that, we need your questions!
We’ve opened a thread in General Discussion in which you can now ask questions (one per user, so make it count!). On Tuesday at 2PM CST (8PM GMT), we will close that thread, select ten questions and get answers to them for Friday’s blog post.
In order to increase the chances of having your specific question answered and to help us keep the thread manageable, here are some guidelines on asking questions:
1. Keep your question relatively short. Background details are welcome, but don’t go overboard.
2. Please actually ask a question. We want to hear constructive feedback elsewhere in the Forums.
3. Use common sense – we cannot answer everything, especially on far-reaching content.
4. Limit yourself to one question per thread, please. You can always ask another question next week!
5. And finally, as a reminder, this is not a discussion thread. Do not comment about what somebody else has posted.
Any other posts apart from questions in the thread will be removed. With that being said, please head on over to the official thread for the Q&A session and ask away!
The second addition to the Community Blog section is going to be a Weekly Dev Tracker Summary. In it, we will be rounding up all of our official responses to Forum threads in one handy blog post. Hopefully this will give anyone who does not look at the Dev Tracker on a daily basis a useful summary of what’s been said recently, and will also help you decide on your question for our weekly Q&A sessions.We’re looking forward to your questions and hope these blogs are useful to you!
