SWTOR Founder Title and Medal

SWTOR Founder Title

Bioware is thanking all their members for making SWTOR such a successful launch by offering up a “Founder” title. Basically, after your first 30 days of subscription have lapsed, you’ll receive an in-game mail from Bioware containing a Founders Medal that’s bound when picked up. This title is permanently bound to your account and will carry over to any character you make in the future. It may take a few days for the title to show up, so don’t freak out if you don’t immediately have it.

This will make a pretty cool title on down the road – a lot like some of the WoW items that are no longer accessible that new players are envious of like the Tabard of the Protector for being there at the opening of the Dark Portal.

Watch Your Mouth in SWTOR

SWTOR Swearing

There’s been a lot of discussion about SWTOR since it’s launch on the 20th. Some of it good, some of it bad. One thing I want to point out is the large number of people who have been warned/banned because of language. Below is a screenshot from the forums in which a player named Irishdrunk was issued a warning for swearing in tells to his friends.

SWTOR Swearing

There were no reports made for the language, rather Bioware must have a screen that all whispers go through and will issue automatic warnings when you drop the f-bomb. This isn’t an isolated case, if you click the links in the third sentence of this post you’ll find others who have had this same problem. So just be warned – don’t swear in SWTOR. Despite there being a language filter and despite the offending words being used in private tells between you and a friend, you could possibly find yourself with a warning or a ban. If you’re banned, you cannot change payment information while banned so you will be charged recurring fees even while your account is banned.

Take this with a grain of salt of course… because it was on the internet and half of what I find/read on the internet is usually made up. But there do seem to be a fair amount of people experiencing it and it’s sometimes better to just watch your language instead.
