Star Wars: The Old Republic highlights bomb(er) ships

SWTOR on its second anniversary: Winning an uphill battle

At the beginning of the year, Star Wars: The Old Republic was struggling to find its place in the MMO world. As you are likely aware, 2012 was a rough year for SWTOR, but because of the free-to-play launch in November, the tide began to turn, at least financially. Players began flooding back to the...
