Star Wars: The Old Republic is preparing to roll out its 1.7 update, giving the game a fresh in-game event and a new aspect of character progression. The "Relics of Gree" event kicks off with the update tomorrow and lasts through February 26, while the new "Galactic Reputation" system is here to stay.

The "Relics of Gree" event involves a mysterious and ancient starship suddenly making an appearance over Ilum. Something has taken over the Gree ship, and they promise advanced weapons and armor to anyone who helps them take it back. Meanwhile, the "Galactic Reputation" system lets you build Reputation points by performing tasks for various factions. You can advance through six ranks of prestige: Outsider, Newcomer, Friend, Hero, Champion, and Legend. This reputation is also shared among your Legacy.

      This is all great and all, but I really wish they'd work on the "Memory Leak" that causes the game to hang when quitting for 3+ mins!

        haha that is still around. Pretty sure that was in beta before the game released. The Operations were fun but took WAY to long for new content.

      I really hope they wise up and restructure the f2p model.

      Star Trek Online has a much better model, everything you can buy with cash, you can do the same with ingame credits, it just takes longer. And you get the full game, pvp and all, no restrictions.

      TOR could learn that lesson. It's insulting to have to buy a "license" to use gear and participate in arenas
