SWTOR: Update 5.10 and Alliance Alerts

  • Hi folks!


    During our livestream where we first revealed the details of Update 5.10: Jedi Under Siege, I mentioned that when Players begin the storyline in that update, any Alliance Alerts they hadn't completed on that character would be auto-completed for them, and that we'd give out more details later. Well, it's later now, so here are some details!



    We have actually changed our plans on this pretty significantly, but the short version is: When starting the first new storyline mission in Update 5.10, the light-side
    Arcann Alliance Alert will be auto-completed if it hasn't been completed already; no other Alliance Alerts will be auto-completed.


    Why pick on Arcann? It relates to his romance; since Alliance Alerts aren't generally required to be finished before moving forward in the main storyline, it would hypothetically be possible to have Arcann's Alliance Alert sitting on a character for years before completing it and, potentially, choosing to start a romance with him. To prevent this
    from causing issues with future romances, we need to know that you can no longer begin a romance with Arcann via that mission once a character has begun the storyline in 5.10. (Remember: if you complete his alert before starting the first storyline mission in 5.10, then nothing will change with him or his alert at all.)



    For similar reasons, going forward, starting new romances with certain returning class companion characters may preclude resuming a romance with other returning class companion characters. For example, choosing to begin a romance with Nadia in update 5.10 would preclude you from resuming an existing romance with Felix Iresso if you hadn't already
    done so via his Alliance Alert. You will always get a warning confirmation on choices like this.


    Outside of Alliance Alerts, beginning the first storyline mission in 5.10 will still auto-complete all other storylines, much like starting KOTFE. As with KOTFE, our general guideline for what choices are set by default is that Republic characters are assumed to make light side choices, and Imperial characters are assumed to make dark side choices.
    As examples, I've highlighted some of the major choices and how they default below, including a few where we have exceptions to the general guideline. Spoilers, of course!



    So you can see there are some complexities and exceptions to the general guideline, but it's pretty consistent overall. None of this applies to a character who has already completed these storylines, of course, so if you want to see different variables set for your character, I would encourage you to play through the storylines before starting Jedi Under Siege


    If you have any questions about the auto-complete process when starting Jedi Under Siege, don't hesitate to ask!


    Thanks everyone!


    EDIT:


    Some quick additions, based on questions I've seen coming up:

    • If your character has already completed everything available before 5.10, nothing in this post applies. Auto-complete is only used for characters who haven't finished the previous content.
    • Other than the Arcann Alliance Alert, NO Alliance Alerts are being affected. They will all work as they do now.
    • When auto-completing the Arcann Alliance Alert, your character is assumed to NOT romance Arcann. If you want to romance him, do his alert before starting Jedi Under Siege's first story mission

  • Also ich finde das so gut... Dieses *auto-complete* mag zwar gut sein, vor allem wenn man es schon 1000 und 1 mal gemacht hat, aber es zerschießt einem dann auch das ein oder andere... Was meint ihr was im Off-Bo los gewesen wäre hätten die das so wie im ersten Absatz gesagt gemacht.?! Da hätten die noch so viele Warnungen und "OK" Klick-Felder einbauen können, die Leute hätten sich munter durchgeklickt - wie Zombies, nicht in der Lage irgendeiner noch so winzigen geistigen Aufnahmen ^^ - und dann hätten die sich im Off-Bo ausgekotzt warum das denn so ist und sie es sich nicht aussuchen/-wählen können wie denn die Vervollständigung ist etc. etc. etc. :rolleyes:
