SWG Awakening 5 Year Anniversary Celebrations

Hello to all of SWG Awakening’s members,

Wow, we made it to a grand old age of 5! With all those years being in continuous operation, and no database wipes. Thank you all for sticking with us, no matter how long you have been playing for!

To celebrate the 5 year voyage we have undertaken through this Star Wars Galaxy, we will be having the usual weekend long event (Restart on the 8th – Restart on the 11th), with paintings, double XP and a badge for your toons but we’ll also be running a few tiers of lottery (they will be drawn a week after being initiated).

This is how the weekend’s celebrations will work:

  • The two paintings will be awarded to the first toon on your account to login after the server restart on the 8th of November (this mechanism will be on until the next server restart).

  • A special commemorative badge will be awarded to each toon logged in between the restarts on the 8th and 11th.

  • All experience gained will be doubled for the period between scheduled restarts.

  • Three lotteries will be initiated at some stage over the weekend be drawn in one week’s time from the start date. Cyclone will announce when they are placed and their location.

    Prizes include:
    • Tier One: 1 CSR Prize Token.

    • Tier Two: A rare BARC Speeder Deed that isn’t currently isn’t in the loot tables.

    • Tier Three: The winner’s choice of either a Rebel Spire or Emperor’s Spire (NGE Housing) neither of which are currently in the loot tables.

To be eligible to get the anniversary rewards you will need to restart all Awakening clients and the launcher if you have either open, this is so the updated .tre file downloads to your Awakening install.

The Awakening staff team wish to thank everyone for making this community amazing, and sticking with us all this time! We hope you continue to enjoy playing SWG with us on Awakening for many years to come. We look forward to experiencing whatever the future has to throw at us together and enjoying the fun times along the way!

May 4th 2019

Star Wars Day is nearly upon us again! Similar to most years the Awakening team has prepared two new paintings for the first character that logs in for each account and a badge for each character that logs in. We felt that we needed to go a step beyond predictable though, so we are also adding loot bonuses! Nearly every NPC in the galaxy will have the potential to drop rare loot - including some items that have never been seen on Awakening before. Endgame hunters and new players alike will have a chance to walk away with a server-first vehicle or house.

Following the scheduled reset on Friday May 3rd, and lasting throughout the weekend until the next reset on Monday May6th the following features will be enabled:

  • Bonus XP

  • Two new paintings per account

  • May 4th 2019 badge

  • Increased rare loot drops

  • Increased Yellow / Exceptional / Legendary drop rates

May the 4th be with you!

Vendor Updates

During our sever restart this morning we applied a minor update to implement two of the most requested features. Nearly every player has had experience operating a vendor or trying to find one that has the item(s) they need. We're hoping these changes will take a lot of the frustration out of both.

Shoppers will now have the ability to filter their vendor searches based on keyword and price. Just look for your crate of blue milk for under 5000cr and save yourself the time of looking through thousands of items!

Shopkeepers that have trained the Novice Merchant skill will now have the "Restock Vendor" option available from the radial menu on their vendors. For a per item fee of 50 credits all expired items will be relisted at their original price. Bonus for mayors: if a vendor is within a city's borders a percentage of this fee will be deposited in the treasury.

Note: For the improved vendor search to be available players will need to have their Awakening files up to date. If the feature doesn't appear to be working restart your launcher and client.

Bonus XP Incentive

First, we would like to thank everyone who donated this month to help us reach our goal - and all of those that have donated in the past. As most of our players know Awakening relies on those donations to cover operational costs and any shortfalls in funding ultimately falls on staff to cover. In August we saw quite a few first-time donors and hope to see that trend continue in the future. So, we decided to implement an incentive plan to try getting the donation meter consistently filled on a monthly basis while possibly expanding the donor pool.

Beginning in September, bonus xp will be turned on for the remainder of the month once the donation meter hits 100% on the following schedule:

  • Occurs on or before the 15th of the month - 50%

  • After the 15th but on or before the 20th - 25%

  • After the 20th - 10%

To kick off this incentive we will be granting double xp for the Labor Day holiday weekend which will start at the time of this post.

Thank you all for making Awakening your SWG home!
