Vor einigen Tagen haben wir über das bevorstehende Operation Victory Turnier berichtet. Bioware hat in Kooperation mit der ESL das Event geplant und viele haben sich bereits darauf gefreut, doch schnell kamen auch einige Fragen auf.
SWTOR Operation Victory Turnier abgesagt!
Im offiziellen Forum hat Eric Musco sich nun dazu geäußert und bekannt gegeben, dass das Turnier abgesagt wurde. Grund dafür ist der Coratanni Boss, welcher im Speedrun nicht funktioniert, obwohl die Entwickler einiges ausprobiert haben.

I will cut right to the chase, we are cancelling our ESL Operation Victory competition. Our reason revolves around the Coratanni encounter. I know many of you raised concerns about the issues related to the encounter, and we agree.
We spent a lot of time this week testing bug fixes to see how viable the fixed version would be in a speed running environment. We have applied improvements to the Coratanni encounter as of tomorrow’s patch but there are still situations that could impact players focused on a timed run.
We thank you for your feedback around the contest and should we decide to do something like this in the future, we will let you know. Also, let us know your feedback on the concept of doing a speedrun contest. As we explore options like this in the future it would be great to know your thoughts.
I know you guys will have a lot of questions so let me hit some of what has come up so far.
Why not play Temple of Sacrifice?
Two reasons for this. First, it was a numbers game. Only a fraction of the players who are in Ops at 60 are in ToS and so we wanted to make sure the first round was accessible to as many people as possible. Second, our plan was that the finals (the second round) would be played in ToS so that the Revan encounter was a part of the tournament finale.
Why not announce the rules sooner?
We wanted to make sure we knew exactly what we would be playing and how we would be playing it. While we were working on the Coratanni changes, we were hesitant to post any rules.
Why announce the cancellation so late?
We were exhausting everything we could to get the competition in place, to start on time. We didn’t want to pull the plug unless we really felt we had too.
