Fans of The Old Republic have a lot to be excited for, as the newest content update titled "Allies", is landing today. First off, you have the heavily requested group finder feature, which allows you to search and join up with other players with the press of a button -- this alone would have ensured that I didn't stop playing basically right when I hit 50.
There's also the addition of Ranked Warzones, extra legacy perks, an enhanced XP system, and adaptive gear. The XP system sounds pretty neat, as it lets you customize the way you earn XP the most through the legacy system, whether it's through space combat, questing, or PVP.
Adaptive gear is basically a feature that WoW implemented late last year, and a few other MMOs had before it -- it allows you to use any cosmetic gear you want while still retaining the bonuses of your "top tier" gear.
Something tells me the game would have been a lot more successful if it launched with some of these basic updates. Either way, this one is actually interesting enough for me to come back and dig around for a month or so.
